Off the Shoulder Top + High Waisted Raw Hem Crop Flare + Birkenstocks

 This is one of my favorite shoots we’d done in a while.  It was totally impromptu outside of our house, which is usually when Maya gets into it the most.

Oddly enough…favorite shoot or no, we took them FIVE months ago….whoops.

So, let’s pretend those are yellow and orange leaves behind us!

We actually had a nice sunny day today, so the outfits could have happened! These were one of the first flares that I chopped.  They are my FAV!!  And…the ones that started the chopping addiction ha! Baby Birks!!  DYING! These next images are some of my absolute favs of us! And….Maya totally schooling me on the art of posing!

Off the shoulder top + Skinnies + Wedges | Girls Night Out!

 My girlfriend of over 20 years and her daughter came to stay with us a few weeks ago.

We shopped, we ate, we drank rose, and…we laughed.

What more could you ask for?

I mean…what’s the good of taking pics in front of your house if you can’t have a glass of wine while doing so?

hahaha

Ok, funny story.  We actually took the BUS to a neighborhood restaurant earlier in the evening.  HA!  We were a liiiiiiiittle more dressed up than most of the passengers.

Whatever…
Because no matter how big, they are always our babies right?? Playing with the remote.  Aka…taking a picture of herself!

Hi, my name is Lauren, and I’m a very enthusiastic laugher… 🙂
Two things about this.  YES, the guy didn’t realize he was walking into our shot until the LAST minute.  Oh, and THEN..Maya thought it would be hilarious to pull my top down!
Good times… 😉 I have no idea what’s going on here haha.

Off the shoulder sweater + Ripped Skinnies + Pop of RED clogs

 One of my favorite accessories is a fun red shoe!  It makes any outfit pop… And, when you can’t think of what you want to wear, your shoes can save you!

Honestly, I took these images a few weeks ago. That will be the reoccurring them lately, as I’m in the thick of my busy season, and our weather is… well, not so great!

Currently, it’s raining sideways and we are about to have 20-30 mph winds with 40-50+ mph gusts of winds over the weekend (WHAT!?)  Needless to say, my shoots over the weekend and Maya’s soccer game have been cancelled, and we will be cuddling inside with our fire going.  Because even if we loose power, it will still go (thank goodness!!)

Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up on work!!

THEN…she decided to do a twist mid jump!  UM…I’m so glad we didn’t watch more of the Olympics than we did.  We barely had time for any.  We only watched a little bit of gymnastics, but good grief.  I can’t even imagine what she would try if she’d seen more!blog-outtake-1 When I’m smiling off to the side in images of just me…this is what’s really going on 🙂blog-outtake-2
