Casual everyday wear + lots of snuggles=good to be home :)

It was so nice to get away, but I could not wait to get home and see the Peanut!  Since I was gone all weekend, I hadn’t done any shoots, which meant I didn’t have to work as much this week and had more time to snuggle Maya-double win!!!

For these first two, she’s of course finishing off her lunch in her wagon 🙂Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-1 Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-2I think she may have forgotten how fun the self timer was… Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-3So, of course I had to remind her 🙂 Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-4 Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-5 Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-6 Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-7 Blog Sweet Romeo Sweater Hudson Cafe Noir Boots-8On me…

My favorite leather jacket + Vans…sure they go together :)

 I’m a big believer in putting things together that you like, and that look good on you.  Rules schmules (to some extent!).  Then…fingers crossed they work.  And if they don’t, oh well.  At least you like what you’re wearing If you feel good, chances are you look good too 🙂  I can’t tell you how many times I tried to make something work that I liked on someone else, but felt so uncomfortable all day that I hated it/couldn’t wait to fling it off when I got home.

Now, there’s really nothing odd about this outfit.  At least I don’t think there is?  haha.  The Pink Polka Dot Vans are a little playful (totally remind me of my childhood), and the jacket is a little edgy.  Not exactly the “perfect fit”, but I was comfortable, so it was a win 🙂Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-1 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-2 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-3 Blog Doma Leather Jacket Twenty8Twelve Jeans Vans-4LOVE the details in this Doma jacket.  I bought it when I worked at Sway and Cake for a year on the weekends (9 years ago??).  Yeah, THAT was dangerous… Anyway, it still totally current and still looks great!

Layering with Sweaters…

 I got this sweater in the mail from StyleMint the other day, and I couldn’t wait to wear it!  I love that I can put a long sleeve t shirt under it and wear it now, but also can’t wait to wear it next spring/summer too!

As a side note.  If it’s overcast (diffuses the harsh midday sun), I try and do these shoots around lunch time so that I can stick Maya in her wagon with her lunch to keep her occupied.  Today she was watching me run back and forth with the self timer and she kept laughing and saying “Hi Mommy!  What are you doing?!”  Over and over… 🙂Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-1 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-2 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-3 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-4 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-5 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-6 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-7 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-8 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-9 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-10 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-11 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-12I tried to get her to throw the leaves up in the air, and this is what I got 🙂 Blog StyleMint Sage Sweater Vince Skinny Jeans-13On me…

What to wear to the Pediatric Radiologist {I only wish I was kidding…}

 I think I mentioned before that Maya has had some issues for the past 5 months.  We’ve been going to the Dr more times that I can even count.  For sure more times that I want to count.

  Through it all, she’s been such a champ.  Still full of smiles.  THIS?  A few hours after she was put under anesthesia, poked, proded, and…well a lot of other things.  Love this little resilient nugget more than anything!blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-1 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-2Me?  I just wanted to be comfy… blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-3 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-4 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-5 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-6On me…

Is Halloween for a 2 year old for them…or us?

Please, please, PLEASE say us 🙂  I feel bad for Maya because both her birthday and Halloween fall during my busiest season.  What that means is that all the ideas I’ve had floating in my mind, just get left there and she gets a family bbq for her birthday and butterfly wings I bought off Zulily last year for Halloween…

She’s been so crazy for the butterfly wings for the last few months (I’ve got them stored in the top shelf of her closet).  Of course, when I wanted her to wear them, she didn’t want to.  See, for us right?? 😉blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-1So, we played in the leaves instead 🙂blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-2 blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-3blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-4 Mind you.  I was wearing the wings for our entire walk around the neighborhood.  Got some great looks from my neighbors 🙂  Then, finally she wanted to wear them.  Near these pumpkins-score! blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-6 blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-5On Maya…
