White + Black & a pop of Red

 I’ve mentioned before my love of white jeans.  They really aren’t practical when you have a toddler, but I can’t help myself.  They make me think of summer, which is a nice thing to think about right now 🙂Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-1 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-2 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-3Can I just say how much I love these shoes??  I got them off eBay for a steal, and wasn’t sure how cool they really would be until I got them.  LOVE THEM!!

Pretty sure my neighbors thought I was even more crazy that usual while I was trying to get this shot.  Balancing the camera on the ground, while kneeling on a towel to focus/get the exposure (had to protect the jeans!!)  As a photographer, I always have these shots in mind, and I love trying to figure out how to do them myself 🙂 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-4 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-5 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-6 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-7AND THEN….Maya went traipsing through the mole hills that have attacked our neighborhood.  She looks quite pleased with herself, doesn’t she?   There went my nice clean white jeans…but hey, that’s what stain remover is for!Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-8 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-9 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-10On me…

It’s ok if our shoes kinda match, right?

 I am such a sucker for Converse.  I snap them up every time I see them at a thrift store, and I may have screeched when I saw these silver glitter ones for Maya.  And $4?!!  How could I not???  A little scrubbing on the rubber part, and they look almost new!  Mine are also thrifted.  I think for $10?  Not as good as $4, but I still love them 🙂

Cape and Boots! Hmmm, now I feel like a cartoon character…

 I’ve had these boots for…I don’t even know how long!  I’ve only worn them 2-3 times, and never as over the knee.  They have the option of folding them down “pirate boot” style, and that’s how I’ve always done it.  I just feel too…I don’t know.  Self conscious??  Ok, streetwalkerish :{

So, truthfully, this outfit only got as far as the alley haha.  But, I had to photograph it to see what it looked like, because I’m loving all the over the knee boots I’m seeing others wear!

My favorite leather jacket… in GREEN!

 I have this exact jacket it a bright orange (worn last here), and I love it!  I get compliments every time I wear it, and even let a senior wear it for her senior portraits.  When I saw it on eBay a while back in green (my favorite color), I sooooo wanted it!!  I let it go (did I really need another leather jacket???!)  Then, I saw it again a few weeks ago at a screaming deal (aka FATE haha), so I snatched it up!  I have a few Doma Leather jackets.  Obviously, the quality is amazing, but they also all have such unique details to them.  I love that!!Blog Green Doma Leather Jacket Blankn NYC Pants Suede Booties-1 Blog Green Doma Leather Jacket Blankn NYC Pants Suede Booties-2Scored these suede booties at a thrift store last week for $7!!  They are super comfy too!

A little Boho influence…

I was born in the mid(ish :)) 70’s so I think there’s always a part of me that’s drawn to the bohemian look.  Let’s face it…flowy usually equals comfort, so that’s a win 🙂blog Karoo Cashmere Cardigan Ella Moss Silk Top Joes Jeans-1 blog Karoo Cashmere Cardigan Ella Moss Silk Top Joes Jeans-2 blog Karoo Cashmere Cardigan Ella Moss Silk Top Joes Jeans-3 Blog Old Navy Chambray dress Sweater-1 Blog Old Navy Chambray dress Sweater-2 Blog Old Navy Chambray dress Sweater-3
