Military Parka + Cashmere Sweater + Lace Up Boots

 Anyone tired of thinking up ways to layer to stay warm yet not be cocooned in a knee length wearable sleeping bag?

If I’m honest…I was COLD wearing this after the sun went down!!  Thankfully Maya was running around to keep herself warm!

I am SOOO ready for warmer temps, and it’s supposed to be in the 60’s this weekend-woo hoo! Gah!!!  Love HER FACE! And then….hahaha. Some of my new favs… These are both now GONE!!  I really need to capture her gap toothed smile more before the teeth grow back in! She ran back and forth jumping over this puddle about 87 times… 🙂

On me…

Jacket- Gap (thrifted for $7.50, similar here)
Sweater- Feel the Piece(eBay, sold out similar here and less expensive here)
Jeans- 7FAM (old, similar here)
Boots- OLD (!!) Similar here.
On Maya…
Vest- Mini Boden “Cosy Vest” (thrifted)
Top- Name It (thrifted)
Jeans- Hudson (thrifted, but similar here)
Keeping it Real…
 Again…her face… 🙂 .
And…slightly windy!

Distressed Overalls + Bodysuit + Lace Up Booties

 I’m sure that there is an age when it’s really not appropriate to wear overalls…

But I’m thinking/convincing myself that that age is a ways off… 😉 . Because, I love them!  I’ve had a love for them since the 2nd grade when Dexys Midnight Runners came out with “Come on Eileen” . And if you are too young to remember that song, then listen, and dance along!  All that to say… My love of overalls runs deep. 🙂

So, oddly enough this looks like a foggy day in Seattle.

It wasn’t.  It was during the wildfires that happened back in early September.  I remember thinking that it was overcast, so it was ok to wear overalls.  At the end of this, I was a hot sweaty MESS!

BUT…let’s just pretend it was a cool foggy October day… 🙂

She says all the time….

“Mom…no pictures!!”

But you know what… I’ll keep doing them.  Because once we are actually THERE…

This is what I get.  And as much as I love looking back at these over and over…

I have to think that she will too. Pretty sure she has the best laugh EVER! Oh, and this outfit?  Totally wish I could pull it off!!

Faux leather shorts…might be a thing of my past.


haha.One of the things I’ve always loved capturing…

Her running towards me!!

LOVE!!!! When she was younger, it always ended in her knocking me over with a hug.  Now…she just runs on past…haha. SUPER MAYA!!!

On me…

Bodysuit- H&M (similar here)
Booties- Boden (thrifted, similar here and obsessing over these! )
On Maya…
Jean Shirt- Hanna Andersson  (thrifted)
Top- Tucker and Tate (Nordstrom Rack)
Faux Leather Shorts- GapKids  (thrifted, similar here)
Ballet Flats- Clarks (thrifted, similar here)
Keeping it Real…
UGH!!!  The thing about taking our pictures with a tripod and shutter release is that we take a bunch of shots before I even go back to look and make sure that I actually got the focus right and….we didn’t dance right out of the shot.  That is a very common thing.  Oddly, the thing I most complain about when I ask others to take out pic haha.
These next ones.  TOTALLY out of focus, and…while fun, not at all in the frame!  BUT…I love them!!!  In all their blurriness!!
Oh, and I kid you not.  I DID a LOT of pics in this non focused shot!!
Thankfully, I changed it up and refocused.  CORRECTLY!
