Chunky Knits + Leather Leggings…from day to night!

 I’m going to try as much as I can to do more day to night posts.  Mainly for me, because I can never think of something to wear when I do get a night out!  You may think…leather leggings for “day”…with a 4 year old??  Yup!  So practical and totally comfy!!

I’ll start with the few “night” pics that I took right before I walked to pick Maya up from preschool.Blog Vince Wool Drape Sweater Zara Tunic Vince Leather Leggings Joan and David Booties-1 Blog Vince Wool Drape Sweater Zara Tunic Vince Leather Leggings Joan and David Booties-2 Blog Vince Wool Drape Sweater Zara Tunic Vince Leather Leggings Joan and David Booties-3Changed my top into a flowing tank, and put on some Converse-good to go!Blog Vince Wool Drape Sweater Leather Leggings Converse-4 Blog Vince Wool Drape Sweater Leather Leggings Converse-5Then…the sun came out, so the sweater came off.Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-6 Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-7 Yeah, this is what happens now when I throw her!  She flings her legs out, and then lands like this haha.  Kind of scary though, getting her down.Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-8 Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-9 Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-10 Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-11 Blog Maj Tunic Vince Crop Leather Leggings Converse-12Her face kills me haha.

Chunky Knits, Leather Leggings, and…a Fairy Princess!

Here’s the 3rd pair of leather pants I SCORED on eBay over the holidays.  The trifecta of leather!  These weren’t quite 95%+ off like the other ones, but…85% off was good enough for me to pull the trigger and they are sooooo comfy!  I love the gray color too!Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-1 Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-2 Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-3Little photography lesson-for those that are wondering.  The image above is a little hazy, because I had my camera farther back and the sun was hitting the lens.  Closer up, below, both myself and the camera were fully in the shade, so no sun flare.  I kind of like the hazy look sometimes, but for details, it’s nice to get the crisp image. Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-4I had a shoot scheduled for this day, and my parents were all set to pick Maya up from preschool.  Well, the baby got sick, so my shoot got rescheduled.  Maya was so excited to go over to Meme and BOPO’s house that we decided to still have her go over there.  I got to get some work done, so it was an all around win.

When I walked over to pick her up…I found a Fairy Princess!!  I seriously almost died from the cuteness overload, and Maya was so freaking excited!  Of course fairies need to fly 😉 Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-5 Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-6She was in a total kisser bug moon (see proof of this in the video at the end :)) Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-7 Blog Zara Chuncky Tie Back Sweater Vince Skinny Crop Leather leggings Coastal Sam Edelman Petty Booties-8It wasn’t even 50 degrees, so I wasn’t sure how Maya would do in her Fairy Princess outfit outside.  Well, she just ran around non stop, so no problem staying warm 🙂Blog Fairy Costume-1 Blog Fairy Costume-2 Blog Fairy Costume-3 Blog Fairy Costume-4 Blog Fairy Costume-5 Blog Fairy Costume-6 Blog Fairy Costume-7 Blog Fairy Costume-8 Blog Fairy Costume-9 Blog Fairy Costume-10 Blog Fairy Costume-11On me…

Keeping it Real…
My dad was nice enough to take a few videos while we were shooting.  I LOVE THEM!!  I love that it shows how much fun we have, and I love that it shows what the scenario really looks like.  We took the pictures in the alley behind my parents house.  There was mixed sun and shade, garbage and recycling cans, and cars lining the way.  The beauty of the crop 😉
So…here we are {I don’t think the video can be seen on your phone 😦 }
