Leather Jacket + LBD + Moto Boots…On the Beach! Why not?

Pictures originally taken 10/9/2020 (playing catch up!)
Words written on Instagram on that day…
Not going to lie…I have NOT been in the mood to take pictures lately…

Distance Learning…Rental property projects…SO much more that I won’t share, because we are ALL dealing with shit right now!!

This is the first time I’ve taken pictures of us together that were NOT in our backyard or the sidewalk in front of our house in SEVEN months!

Gah…this makes me SO SAD!!

I took some pictures of Maya last weekend for her birthday during our trip to Friday Harbor. It made me realize how much we both miss it.

And to clarify….Maya states ALL THE TIME-

“I HATE pictures!!” UGH, she does NOT! BUT, she clearly loves to oppose ME…

It was easier when it was just our backyard, but she knows how much I want it, and takes a stand. It takes ALL KINDS OF BRIBES to get her to go take pictures, and yet…when we go somewhere, she’s running all over the place having fun! She comes up with ideas for shots, and totally gets into it! I LOVE that side of it, but the actual getting her out of the house to go TAKE the pictures?

UGH…

But…we ventured out today with our masks on hand. I went to one of my favorite secluded spots, and…NOBODY WAS THERE!!

AND!!! We had so much fun!! As we ALWAYS DO!! It’s just so hard to get her out of the house…

I’m so glad when I do!!Blog All Saints Leather Moto Jacket Lanston Maxi Dress Frye Veronica Slouch Short Boots On Beach-1Blog All Saints Leather Moto Jacket Lanston Maxi Dress Frye Veronica Slouch Short Boots On Beach-2

And…HER!

This was “Picture Day” for school.  It was taken in a park by the school.  You had a time slot, took your mask off for the picture.
The day before…Maya decided to give herself a neck tattoo!  I mean…why NOT before PICTURE DAY???
WTF?

I mildly freaked out a little INSIDE, but then decided I could give two shits with ALL we’ve been dealing with.  She wanted it.

The girl taking her picture complimented her on it, and it made the most genuine smile she’s ever had in her school picture!!

And that is when things shifted for me… SHE wanted that neck tattoo.  SHE loved it.  SHE felt confitdent and loved the way she looked.

I LOOOOOVE IT!!! It’s my most favorite school picture of her!!

Oversized Knits (w/fun details) + Moto Boots

 I love the mix of this top that is somewhat feminine in it’s color and details, with the grungy gray skinnies and old moto boots.  I had to run around all morning (Maya had gymnastics, followed immediately by school), then raced home to get caught up on work.  The shower never happened, but I was beyond comfy!  I had finished up some work with about 20 minutes to spare before I had to pick Maya up.  I ran down and took some  pictures really quick, because we had a random break in the monsoon rain we’ve had lately!  I had hopes of bringing Maya back after school, but she was pretty beat…so we just chilled at home instead.Blog Free People Pointelle Ballet Neck Pullover Genetic Denim Mayhem Fiorentini Baker 7040 Boot-1 Blog Free People Pointelle Ballet Neck Pullover Genetic Denim Mayhem Fiorentini Baker 7040 Boot-2 Blog Free People Pointelle Ballet Neck Pullover Genetic Denim Mayhem Fiorentini Baker 7040 Boot-3 Blog Free People Pointelle Ballet Neck Pullover Genetic Denim Mayhem Fiorentini Baker 7040 Boot-4 Blog Free People Pointelle Ballet Neck Pullover Genetic Denim Mayhem Fiorentini Baker 7040 Boot-5On me…

I really wanted to show the movement of this sweeater and capture the super cool deep side slits.  That didn’t happen haha.  Two cars pulled up just as I was doing this, and I decided to just call it a day after one failed attempt! 😉Blog Outtake
