White Button Down + Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans = Classic

 So, two things.

A white button down with jeans is ALWAYS a classic!  You cannot go wrong!

Second thing…we took these images a YEAR AND A HALF AGO!!!

Yes, that was spring of 2017!

hahahaha.

Hence the flowers blooming behind me.  I thought I’d post them last spring, but…didn’t.
BUT…I couldn’t NOT post these!! LOVE! One of my fav pics of Maya, and…you might have spotted this image in Hanna Andersson stores 🙂 But these next two are favs too!!

Comfy Sweatshirt + Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans + Chucks

 Ok…I debated erasing the first two paragraphs of this blog post, since I originally wrote it in…SEPTEMBER!!!  But, whatever.  I normally can’t think of things to say, so…I’ll just leave it as is, and we can pretend this is a transition to spring post haha.

Same thing…

Fall is definitely in the air here in Seattle!  Normally, September is still pretty sunny and nice, but when we got 80 degree days in May, all the rules have been off since.

Not going to lie.  I LOVE the in between the season days.  You get to break out clothing you haven’t worn in a while, but you get to go back and forth over the next few weeks.  This weekend, we are supposed to be in the 70’s again, so we still have a little bit of summer left to enjoy!

Until then…one of my favorite fall staples is a basic gray sweatshirt!  Paired with a pair of comfy boyfriend jeans, and Converse, and you basically feel like you’re wearing a pair of pajamas all day-WIN!blog-james-perse-sweatshirt-current-elliott-boyfriend-super-loved-jeans-converse-1 blog-james-perse-sweatshirt-current-elliott-boyfriend-super-loved-jeans-converse-2 Her face!  I can’t even…blog-james-perse-sweatshirt-current-elliott-boyfriend-super-loved-jeans-converse-3 And again…HER FACE!!!

Vintage Chunky Knit Cardigan + Boyfriend Jeans + Booties

 So, is there anything more comfy cozy than an oversized chunky cardigan and boyfriend jeans? Well, besides jammies or work out wear ;)?  I TRY and get out of those at some point during the day (it doesn’t always happen!!).Blog Vintage Handknit Cardigan J Brand Boyfriend Jeans Clyde Cafe Noire Booties-1 Blog Vintage Handknit Cardigan J Brand Boyfriend Jeans Clyde Cafe Noire Booties-2 Maya was totally cracking me up.  I finally figured out how to use my remote shutter and have it take consecutive shots on it’s own.  I have 10 shots of her showing her snacks to the camera 😉Blog Vintage Handknit Cardigan J Brand Boyfriend Jeans Clyde Cafe Noire Booties-3 Blog Vintage Handknit Cardigan J Brand Boyfriend Jeans Clyde Cafe Noire Booties-4 Blog Vintage Handknit Cardigan J Brand Boyfriend Jeans Clyde Cafe Noire Booties-5YES!!  I finally can take a bunch of these and not have to keep running back to the camera to push the self timer!  It’s almost sad how excited I was when I finally figured it out!

Chunky Knits + Comfy Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans + Lace Up Boots

 The good news?  I think I found the perfect destroyed boyfriend jeans.  The bad news?  They don’t make them anymore. 😦

I scored these new on eBay for $27, originally $231(I sometimes wonder how the sellers get their stock, but then…I figure I don’t really care haha-whoops)

Most destroyed boyfriend jeans are 100% cotton (that fabric tends to fray the best)  The downside is that they either stretch out and give you saggy butt, or they don’t stretch at all-which isn’t all that comfy!  These are stretchy but don’t stretch out, aka what I totally look for in a jean!  I’m a little embarrassed about how many times I’ve worn these since I got them a few weeks ago… :}Blog Zara Lilac Chunky Knit Turtleneck Genetic Masen Ex Boyfriend Lace Up boots-1 Blog Zara Lilac Chunky Knit Turtleneck Genetic Masen Ex Boyfriend Lace Up boots-2 Blog Zara Lilac Chunky Knit Turtleneck Genetic Masen Ex Boyfriend Lace Up boots-3I made the mistake of giving her my phone in the car while I snapped a few pics of me.  She found her way to the Disney Collector and there was NO taking that phone out of her hands haha.  If you don’t know who she is (you’re lucky!)  If you have a toddler, my guess is that you do.  They all seem to find her somehow!!?? Blog Zara Lilac Chunky Knit Turtleneck Genetic Masen Ex Boyfriend Lace Up boots-4 Blog Zara Lilac Chunky Knit Turtleneck Genetic Masen Ex Boyfriend Lace Up boots-5  It kind of cracks me up to see her looking so serious 🙂Blog Ahoy Amigo Always Hungry Pullover Levis Zebra Converse-1 The only way to get the phone out of her hands was to go to the playground.  I took these after we got home.  She’s walking her yoyo 😉 Blog Ahoy Amigo Always Hungry Pullover Levis Zebra Converse-2 Blog Ahoy Amigo Always Hungry Pullover Levis Zebra Converse-3 Blog Ahoy Amigo Always Hungry Pullover Levis Zebra Converse-4 Blog Ahoy Amigo Always Hungry Pullover Levis Zebra Converse-5 Blog Ahoy Amigo Always Hungry Pullover Levis Zebra Converse-6On me…

Sweater- Zara (last year, similar here)
Jeans- Genetic Denim Masen Ex Boyfriend (ebay, sold out but I bet these are just as comfy!)
Boots- 20+ years old (similar here and less expensive here)
On Maya…
Jeans- Levi’s (thrifted, but similar here)
Shoes- Converse (thrifted, but similar here)
Keeping it Real…
I actually took these right after Halloween.  I was stock piling pics/posts on days that weren’t raining in anticipation of the inevitable monsoon season, then…we got super lucky with great weather for the last few weeks!  So, I’ve got extras thank goodness, because I’m so flipping overwhelmed outside of this blog I could cry (and admittedly have a few times…).  Again…this blog is the thing I look forward to working on, during breaks, when things are going to %&$#, so…thank you to all of you that are following along.  🙂
THIS is Maya finding a piece of candy on the sidewalk and balancing it on her head haha.Blog Outtake

WhoWhatWear 30 Day Wardrobe Challenge // Day 18 // Test out a new tuck

 I’m pretty sure they meant a new way to tuck something in, but I am not a big tucker-inner (yes, I know that isn’t a word :)).  I love when I see others tuck sweaters into their jeans, but when I do it, I just feel frumpy!  So, I thought I’d try tucking something into a pair of boyfriend jeans that I’ve always just worn tight sweaters with.

It has been raining sideways for the last few days.  Suddenly, I looked outside to see that it had stopped!  I wrapped a scarf around me, and ran out there really quick!Blog HM Top J Brand Aiden Jeans Linea Pelle Belt Superga-1 Blog HM Top J Brand Aiden Jeans Linea Pelle Belt Superga-2 Blog HM Top J Brand Aiden Jeans Linea Pelle Belt Superga-3 Blog HM Top J Brand Aiden Jeans Linea Pelle Belt Superga-5And then…it got SUNNY!  What??  YAY!
