Cut off Levi’s 501’s for the Beach…

 We had some record low tides over Memorial Day weekend!  I really have no interest in going to the beach over the weekend, because it gets CRAZY busy, but Maya doesn’t have school on Friday’s, so we headed down to enjoy a crowd-free beach!

I’ve had these cut offs since college!  I originally thrifted them as jeans and cut them back in 1993…yikes.

I still love them! Big shocker…she went into the water and got soaking wet!Trying to spin dry her off haha 🙂

Menswear Inspired….or, actual menswear?

A little of both!  I love the menswear inspired look.  I am not afraid to actually buy mens clothing, and I absolutely buy boys clothes for Maya too!

My entire outfit (minus my prescription sunglasses ;)) all were thrifted!  The entire outfit cost me around $20-$25!blog-theory-tan-button-down-levis-501-luciano-moresco-brogues-1 blog-theory-tan-button-down-levis-501-luciano-moresco-brogues-2 blog-theory-tan-button-down-levis-501-luciano-moresco-brogues-3 blog-theory-tan-button-down-levis-501-luciano-moresco-brogues-4 blog-theory-tan-button-down-levis-501-luciano-moresco-brogues-5blog-theory-tan-button-down-levis-501-luciano-moresco-brogues-6I can’t even with this next pose.  It’s so funny.  She definitely went through a “NO PICTURE!!” phase for a while.  She eventually would get over it and just play, thank goodness!  Unless, of course it’s with my phone.  She still is pretty adamant about me not taking pictures of her with my phone!  I think she is so used to me having a big camera, that she doesn’t think as much about it.  But with my phone, I’m all up in her face and usually asking.

Anyways, lately, she’s been pulling out these “poses” and it’s totally cracking me up!  I honestly think that’s why she does it.  She’ll do anything if it gets a laugh.  SO…I’ll keep laughing 😉 1blog-maya-259-old-navy-tan-trench-tucker-tate-tunic-cherokee-destroyed-boyfriend-brown-toms-3And of course, she’s always jumping and twirling 🙂blog-old-navy-tan-trench-tucker-tate-tunic-cherokee-destroyed-boyfriend-brown-toms-2 blog-old-navy-tan-trench-tucker-tate-tunic-cherokee-destroyed-boyfriend-brown-toms-3 After this one, she was like-
