Destroyed Denim Jackets + High Waisted Crop Flares + Clogs | Twinning is Winning!

  I never know when I’m going to get a bunch of images I love…

I swear the more time and thought I put into a shoot, the less chance it has of turning out haha.

This one, however…I could split into two posts, because I got SO many that I love!

Yup, another pair of cut off pants.  Not going to stop, #sorrynotsorry 😉

I looooooove the detailing on the front pockets of these! Not quite sure how to put my hands in them though haha. This location is perfect for us, which is why we come here a LOT!  There are ALWAYS dogs walking by or playing in the field next to us, so Maya is in heaven!  It is sometimes hard to get her BACK into the shots with me, but usually I can grab her for a few here and there. LOOOOOOOVE this next one!

And…I was looking up this top from past blog posts, and saw THIS POST!

OH MY GOSH!  Chunky little Maya!  DYING!

AND!!!  There’s almost an identical image like the one below!

I HAD to put this other one in!!And then….these! LOOOOOOVE! I can’t believe it was warm enough for me to take my jacket off, but it was! DYING over these next ones!!  I’ll be so sad when her gap toothed smile grows back in!!
On me…

Vintage Camel Hair Coat + Tie Front Striped Button Down + DIY High Waisted Crop Flare + Clogs

 if you follow us at all, you know I’m totally obsessed with cutting my jeans.  It’s one of the many perks of thrifting!  I’m much more adventurous on my “alterations” when I’ve spent less than $20 on a pair of jeans.  Usually less than $15!  I went through a distressing my own jeans phase.

Now, I’m all about chopping off the bottom of all my jeans.  You see the raw hem trend EVERYWHERE, which is TOTALLY helpful when you have a short inseam! And also….striped button down tops!  I had to have an extension to my striped tee obsession haha.But back to the cutting of the jeans…

It’s to the point that it’s getting a little out of control-ha!  Yet…not?

It’s like I’m giving new life to jeans I was NEVER wearing!  AND…now I LOVE them.

So, is that wrong?  I think not.

I had to admit to myself.  Long jeans with heels are not happening anymore.  SO, all my beloved “date night” long jeans….chop chop!

And I’m now I want to wear them all the time!

And they will just get better with every wash… And I’m late in posting this.  Like…really late.

BUT, I’ve said it before.  One of my favorite things to thrift is vintage wool coats.  You can find AMAZING coats with details you can’t even imagine for less than $30!  This one was $16, and I have to be honest…I was cranky about that hahaha.

YET…if you were to buy a true camel hair coat of this quality in the stores, you’d be paying $200 minimum, and upwards of $500!) . SO, again, go thrifting!  Even if you are in a small town!  Go to vintage/antique stores or malls!  I’ve found some GEMS visiting random little towns.

On me…

100% Camel Hair Coat- Vintage (thrifted for $16! similar here )
Top- J Crew (eBay, Similar here)
Jeans- AG DIY Cut hem (eBay, similar here).
Keeping it Real…
Sooo…it was REALLY windy, as you can tell from my hair, but this is also on a pretty high traffic street.  Totally got busted by someone driving reeeeeeaaaaally slow by me wondering what the heck I was doing.  I’m actually totally over it, but still feel like a total nerd in the moment haha.
Whatever.  The look on my face though….

Faux Fur + Stripes + DIY Released Hem Skinnies + RED Clogs | Valentine’s Day 2018

 Never one to be on time…

We took these on Valentine’s Day…but a pop of red is always a good idea in my opinion! I’ll be doing a blog post on just how easy it is to do your own released hem that’s all the rage right now.

I did these while I was watching Maya’s gymnastics class! LOVE! Funny story.  Maya had this idea in her head of what she wanted us to do.  I could NOT figure out what she meant!

But…I think this was it haha.
This was NOT it.  Her face…haha. Singing her little heart out! Gah….I will be so sad when her teeth come in!!

That gap tooth SMILE-LOOOOOOVE!!

On me…

Jeans- Paige “Roxi Capri” with DIY released hem (thrifted, similar here and here)

Just so  you know…the images of me by myself?  They usually start with me trying to lure Maya
in, and then when she doesn’t want to….I improvise.
Yeah…she was NOT feeling it at first. And then…WHY DO I KEEP THINKING BALLOONS ARE A GOOD IDEA!??!!
They are NOT!!!  Like…EVER!
Ok, maybe 2% of the time…

All Black + Statement Clog! (Bodysuit + High Waisted Crop Pants + Strappy Clogs)

I recently posted about Maya turning SIX!  But…I felt like the post should be mostly about HER-duh!!  But…as she was off petting random dogs that came by, I had to opportunity to take pics of just me-ha!

As per usual, I wasn’t really prepared to take pics on this day.  This was on her actual birthday, and she had school.  I swear it’s one thing after another (such is life!!).  But after getting some work done while she was in school, my main thought was getting her last minute gifts/balloons!

Soooo, I put on the outfit that was sitting on my dresser from a wedding I’d recently shot-I’d washed the bodysuit, I promise!!.  BUT…it was in a mound of clean laundry on my dresser too.

  Please tell me I’m not the only one that has a STACK of clothing on their dresser.  Clothes recently worn, but not really dirty.  Clothes out of the dryer that you don’t have time to fold and put away…for like 3 weeks straight.  Ok, 4.

This was SO comfy (as I need to be when shooting a wedding), but I feel like all black can crossover to just about any situation.  It can be casual, it can be dressy, it is always flattering.  AKA…it’s always a WIN!

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve worn these clogs!  I’m so sad to be saying good bye to them until next summer! And…had to get shots of both of our shoes, because our shoe shots are some of my favs! Seriously…dying.

On me…

Pants- Club Monaco (really old, similar here and less expensive here)

I had given Maya the remote to take my picture, and she took like 35 in a row and wouldn’t stop haha.  This would be me running to stop her.
And…then I gave her the remote to take pics of us together.  I feel like she has way more fun when she has control of things at times.  But again…a kazillion shoe shots later… 🙂

White Ruffled Top + Ripped Skinnies + Red Clogs!

 I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again…a statement red shoe will ALWAYS make an outfit!

When it’s a clog?!  I’m telling you…I get questioned about these clogs more than any other shoe!  Ok, honestly…people barely ask me about anything, so these are a total statement shoe/clog!

Oh, and they are soooo comfy!  I’ve raved about them in many a post, so feel free to go back and look at how versatile they are!

The weather here in Seattle has been all over the board lately.  It was in the mid 80’s and then the mid 50’s.  All within a few days.  I had to dig out a few of Maya’s summer dresses that I had packed away!

It should be noted that I took these pictures over a month ago, BUT…I could have taken them this last week haha.
Her face when I said let’s dance together!!
Oh, and then she said

“Let’s have a dance off!!” I’m going to call it a tie!

Unless there are some of you that say I look like “Elaine” (for anyone that gets that reference)

(for anyone that doesn’t get that reference-google Seinfeld Elaine Dance!)

I’m telling you it was the camera!  hahaha.  That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it! But these next ones… LOVE! There’s something about clogs on her feet!  She just wants to dance!  I used to be worried about her twisting her ankle, but nope!  She just keeps dancing away! That tongue and pointed fingers!! Oh, and my dad happened upon us once again on his evening walk.

LOVE this one!! And of course she talked him into an airpalne!

I won’t even do that anymore, so I’m thinking about calling an end to these too.  So glad I’ve documented them thus far tho!

On me…

Tassle Tops + DIY Raw Hem Crop Flares + Clogs

If you’re like me, you’ve been coveting all the raw hem crop flared denim that’s out there right now!

AND THEN IT HIT ME! 😱✂️🤗🤗

I have a ton of flared denim that I think I’ll wear for date night with heels, yet neeeeever do 🙄, SO…✂️✂️✂️😂

Yup, I chopped 3 pairs this week, and I’m LOVING THEM! This pair has only gone through the wash once, but they are just going to get better!! 🤗 The Huz and Maya had been walking Max, but came home just then… Ok, this looks totally magical, but in reality, it’s BUGS!!  And me not remembering where the focus stand was, so I kept moving around in hopes of getting it right.  We are totally blurry here, but I love it! And then I wanted to play around with the sun flare.  It can be tricky, but love this one!Can’t decide if I like it better converted to B&W or not…LOVE this next one! Taken minutes apart, but the camera wasn’t in the sun for this next one….I never have her hair all down.  Wow, she has a lot. And that laugh?  I DIE! THIS would be why I don’t let her wear her hair all down haha.On me…
