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)
On Maya…
Faux Leather Jacket- Zara Kids (thrifted, but similar here)
Denim Jacket- CrewCuts (thrifted)
Dress- Isobella & Chloe (eBay)
Leggings- (Zulily)
Boots- Timberland “Maple Candy” (thrifted, but similar here)
Keeping it Real…
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…

Faux Leather/Fur Vest + Striped Top + Ripped Skinnies + Booties

 I took these a while ago, back when we still had sunny evenings…but honestly, we’ve been super lucky and have had a lot of sunny (albeit COLD!!) days lately!

For those in between weather days, vests (especially faux fur cozy ones!) are a great layering piece! These are hands down some of my new favorite pics of us!!

Mostly, Maya, because this is just so HER!! LOOOOOVE!

On me…

Vest- Velvet (eBay, similar here in black)
Top- We the Free (Free People) Peplum Tee (Nordstrom Rack)
Jeans- DL1961 “Amanda” DIY raw hem (ebay)

As always….most of the parks we go to have a LOT of dogs.  Which means….Maya is lost to me.
Yup, that’s a DIFFERENT dog… 😉 hahahaha.  ME..attempting to enthusiastically call her back to ME…the dog won. I messed up an entire series of shots because I wasn’t in the right spot, so they are all blurry… still love this one though!  Oh, and yes,  That sign was in ALL of our shots… 😦

Faux Fur Vests + Hunter Boots…summer in Seattle.

 We got so spoiled with an amazing May and June.  The sun was shining more than it wasn’t, and we kind of forgot what the “norm” was… Now that it’s July, we are all expecting super warm sunny days!  And then, the last few days, I’ve had to dig out some winter wear!

Not that I’m complaining.  I kind of like the break in the weather.  I bought this faux fur vest off eBay for $16 back in April, and I didn’t think I’d get a chance to wear it for a while.  I honestly wasn’t sure I’d have the nerve to wear it at atll… I broke it out for the 4th of July, and then turned around and wore it again the next day for this little outing.  It’s so fun!!  Oddly, it kind of goes with everything, and Maya likes to snuggle up to it, so extra bonus!

Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-1It was actually pretty cold and windy when we first got to the park.  We ate a picnic lunch, and then decided to explore around the low tide.Blog Parka Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-2Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-3Once again…I had issues with my remote trigger.  I made sure to change the batteries right before we left, but didn’t check the batteries.  Turns out, one of them had been sitting in our “battery drawer” for a while, and was totally corroded ;{

So, it was back to the self timer, which meant me running back and forth like an idiot.  THANKFULLY the beach was pretty empty!Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-4 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-6 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-7Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-5 Blog Lincoln Park Low Tide-8Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-9 Blog Joie Faux Fur Vest Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-10Then it started getting a little warmer…Blog Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-11 haha.  This totally cracks me up.  Again….SO glad there weren’t very many people here.

I set up the camera behind Maya, hit the shutter, and then ran out in front to push on her feet.  Love that she’s looking back at the camera!Blog Joes Jeans Tunic Goldsign Gray Hunters-12Maya could literally spend the entire time swinging if I let her.  Honestly, in my more honest bad mommy moments, I usually try and go to parks that don’t have swings.  She won’t run around and play if they are there.

But…the joy?  Hard to say no to that face!!Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-13 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-14This face is so her.  Trying REALLY hard not to smile 😉 Blog Hanna Andersson Striped Top GapKids Mini Skinny Rain Boots-15 Although, this is even MORE her….

Faux fur and camo in the woods…

I bought Maya’s jeans off eBay.  The pictures weren’t that great, so I just thought they were red skinny jeans (totally fine).  Come to find out, they were camo!! I was SO excited.  I want them in my size… 🙂Blog Faux Fur Vest HM Top J Brand Moto Jeans StyleMint boots-1I have been looking for faux fur every time I go thrifting, and have not found anything until this last weekend.  And proof that everything is worth waiting for… Everything was an extra 50% off-SCORE!!!  That is one of the things I love about thrifting.  You can try out a trend to see if you like it, and not be out a bunch of money.  In this case 4$ for this super cute vest!  I wasn’t sure if I would feel to overly done wearing a faux fur vest, but I didn’t at all!  Love it!
