Gingham + Distressed High Waist Crops + Chucks

 How many have you have looked in your closet full of clothes and couldn’t find a single thing to wear?!!

I’m thinking ALL OF US!

It’s easy to just be overwhelmed, or sick of what you have, and just go shopping.  BUT…what’s even more fun is finding new ways to wear old things!

The top I’m wearing is actually a long tunic.  It normally hits me mid thigh, but I thought it would look good tied with these jeans.

The jeans?  They are supposed to be a baggie boyfriend jean, but the seller on eBay listed them the wrong size.  BUT…in fact, they were 3 sizes smaller!!  I only spent $7.50 on them though, and I kind of like them as a tighter high waisted crop! This was seriously the coolest sky!  It was super stormy and cold, and then the sun came out!

and, Maya LOVED this teeter toter!Little surfer in the making! Me living out my “Dirty Dancing” dancing on a log fantasies, because this is as close as I’m going to get haha. Reviewing her rock treasures…

We actually came to this beach for Easter one year to collect “Easter Rocks”.  Wow, THAT was a trip down memory lane!!  Gah, I love that I’ve kept these records!!! Inevitabley, wherever we go, there are dogs.  Maya LOVES DOGS.  SO…anything I want to do is cut short and then focused around the dogs.  Honestly, as long as she has fun, that’s all that matters! She threw the ball for this dog until it started pouring on us! I mean… Of course, he would come back and shake all over her!  Which…she loved 🙂

On the way back to our house, I saw the skyline, and the moody sky, and had to pull over!  SHOCKINGLY, Maya agreed to get out too! On me…
