My inner Boho…

Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-1 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-2 I have totally been drawn to super wide leg denim lately.  Sadly, my legs are SO short that I need to hem or fake cuff them and then even with that wear 4 inch heels.  That is SO not happening on regular basis.  It was fun to dress up like I did before having Maya for a little bit though… Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-3 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-4 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-5Um…see?  Running after her in 4 inch heels.  NOT GOOD. Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-6This is her look after I’ve been yelling “Maya, stop!  Maya…stop running!!” Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-7FINE… Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-8These were my 2nd jeans I distressed.  I bought them at a thrift store for cheap ($2?).  They were a bit worn, so I figured I just go all out and make it look like they were meant to be that way 🙂 Blog Joie J Brand Gorjana Griffin-9On me…

Weekend getaway-Date Night | Suede Pants :)!

So, weekend getaways mean a lot of things.  Relaxation (i.e.-no cooking, no cleaning, no WORKING!!).  They also usually mean-date nights!  I get to wear things I’ve been saving for a special occasion.  This time?  SUEDE PANTS!  I had so many doubts about these.  Mainly, am I too old to wear suede pants??  Well, I figured vacation was the perfect place to try them out, and I LOVE them!  I’m just going to pretend that 39 really is the new 29 and 29 is totally acceptable for suede pants haha 😉

Oh, and by the time we had gotten ready for dinner, it was dark outside.  So…classy hallway shots it was :{.blog True Religion Casey Suede Geren Ford Corso Como Flats-Blog True Religion Casey Suede Geren Ford Corso Como Flats-1 Blog True Religion Casey Suede Geren Ford Corso Como Flats-2Blog True Religion Casey Suede Geren Ford Corso Como Flats-3 Blog True Religion Casey Suede Geren Ford Corso Como Flats-4 These next pics I took of Maya were from yesterday.  A day where I stayed unshowered and in my workout clothes til about 5-which means total darkness now…  Hey, it happens 🙂Blog 110 weeks Maya Sweater Jack Lily Boots-18My favorite thing to say is “Maya, can I have a hug?”  And she runs crazy into my arms.  LOVE IT! 🙂 blog 110 weeks Maya Sweater Jack Lily Boots-19

I love an interesting back…

I don’t know why, but I’ve always been drawn to clothes that look fairly simple from the front, but then have interesting features on the back.  Mullet clothing if you will 🙂  Low back dresses get me every time.  Cut outs, embellishments, and little surprise when you turn around.  Love it!

Ps-can we all just imagine that I didn’t mess up the focus with the self timer on the full length shots?  Ok, thanks 🙂Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-1I have had these vintage Frye boots for a long time (don’t even remember how long!)  They are a little banged up, but I like the dichotomy of the cashmere sweater, gold jewelry and then worn in boots 🙂 Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-2I already wore this lariat I scored from Gorjana-Griffin last week, and I think it’s safe to say that you will be seeing it a lot more.  Love it! Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-3 Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-4The only bad thing about low backs or cut out backs.  What to wear under it?  I’ve dared to wear this with nothing and just a bra, but most times I put a cami or a long sleeve t-shirt under it. Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-5 Completely unrelated, but I tried ALL summer to get Maya to wear this hat-no go!  Suddenly in the last month, she’s become obsessed with it…  OK! Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-7 Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-8Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-6And then….I remembered that the last time I wore this EXACT OUTFIT, I was a little more than 8 months pregnant!  I mentioned before how comfortable these jeans are.  SO wish they still made them!!  I wore them throughout my entire pregnancy and still wear them now-obviously 🙂

So…here’s a little flashback for you.  I promise, I’m wearing the boots too 🙂Blog Rachel Pally Cashmere Cape AG the Tights Vintage Frye Boots-9On me… (both now and when I was pregnant :))
