Shades of grey….not 50, just two :)

I got a box from Shopbop yesterday that had a bunch of goodies from their 25% off friends and family sale.  Most of the stuff I got was already marked down 70% off, so SCORE!  One of those was this Lady and the Sailor top.  I love it!  It’s basically a dressy T shirt/sweatshirt-so comfy!!  Total score that it matches a scarf that my mom passed down to me.  Perfect for the changing temps we’ve been having!blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-1 blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-2 blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-3 blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-4 blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-5 blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-6 blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-7She’s definitely lost the love for the self timer… ;( blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-8The fog was amazing today.  It only went away for about an hour!  Maya loved all the foghorns that kept going off in the Sound. blog Lady and the Sailor Scarf 7 For All Mankind Roxanne-9On me…

Having fun with plaid…

Or…just having fun 🙂

Plaid is everywhere now.  It reminds me of the early 90’s when I was slightly obsessed with Eddie Vedder 🙂  Well, instead of just pulling out my old flannel shirts (I know I stored them away somewhere!), I thought I’d try and different twist on the trend…Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-1 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-2 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-3Maya wasn’t feeling the “self timer game” so much this day… 🙂 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-4 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-5 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-6

You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a cool leather jacket…

I got this vintage leather jacket at Funky Janes for $25!!  I LOVE IT!  It totally looks like a $500 jacket, yet I know that nobody else is wearing it 🙂Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Black Blank Denim Frye Boots-1 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Black Blank Denim Frye Boots-2 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Black Blank Denim Frye Boots-3 Blog Vintage Leather Jacket Black Blank Denim Frye Boots-4Then when I got home from the shoot a few hours later, it was SUNNY!  It was a little chilly, so I kept the scarf on that I had thrown on (but forgot to photograph!) as I left.

Super Mom Tip-
I could talk all day long about my love of thrifting.  The thrill of the hunt.  The excitement over finding things at 90-95% off!  You do NOT have to spend a kazillion dollars to look good or even wear designer items.  If you get overwhelmed at Thrift stores like Value Village/Goodwill or don’t have the patience for eBay, find a local consignment store.  Or not so local.  It might be worth a drive to score a vintage leather jacket for $25 🙂  PLUS, if you drop your clothes off there, you get $$ back which means the jacket could be FREE!!   ThredUp is also a great online source for both gently used clothing for children and women!  Their customer service is amazing, and the quality of clothing is outstanding.

Are we sick of leopard flats? I’m not… :)

I may have already worn these flats a few times, but I love how they add fun to a pretty simple outfit.  Blog Ivory 360 Cashmere Dylan George Coated Leopard Flats-1And…”super mom tip gone bad”  I mentioned before my dislike of taking things to the drycleaner (who has time?!), and my frequent tossing of “dry clean only” items in the wash.  Well, this sweater is 100% cashmere.  I’d washed it on gentle before and it came out great!  Then…it accidentally went into the dryer.  Wah wah wah 😦  I’m actually ok with the length, but am totally bummed that it’s more of a traditional turtleneck than the cowl neck it was before… Oh, well.  I got it on the cheap off eBay (about 90% off!), so I guess I can’t cry over it too much…

All that said.  I layered a little boho tank underneath so it wasn’t too short with these very tight skinny jeans.Blog Ivory 360 Cashmere Dylan George Coated Leopard Flats-2 Blog Ivory 360 Cashmere Dylan George Coated Leopard Flats-3I am SO buying the size up on these when Maya finally grows out of them!!  For $6, I LOVE THEM!

Super Mom tip *edited*
For the most part, I wash my cashmere sweaters in the wash on “wool delicate”, but make sure you keep an eagle eye out for when the load is done.  Someone might help and throw it in the dryer 😉  This does NOT work well with regular wool or cashmere blends.  That will fit your child when you are done, which I guess could be a super mom tip on how to find sweaters for you child 🙂

Coated denim…day to night.

You know all those weekends where you play with your kids during the day and then get to go out with your husband at night?  Yeah…me either.  However, it does happen on occasion, and a lot of times it’s a short notice offer from my parents that we jump on.  Here’s an outfit that lets you run around during the day, then swap out the shoes for night.Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-1 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-2These are so comfy, and I love the added bling of the glitter.  So not me, but fun!  I think Maya is rubbing off on me haha. Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-3 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-4 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-5 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-6 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-7Then a little bootie for night!  Haha, just reread that.  And, yes to that too 😉 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-8 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-9Funny story.  I’ve had these boots for probably 10 years!  That is the upside to buying quality leather… I used to wear them under my long bootcut jeans.  You never even saw how cute they were.  Love that it’s in fashion to let them show now!  Remember-hoarding, I mean holding onto quality classics, is good 🙂 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-10 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-11These were all done with the self timer again.  Maya was a little sad she wasn’t in them all!

Boyfriend Jeans + Cashmere = weekend comfort outfit!

Boyfriend jeans have been a trend for a while now.  I’ve tried a few pairs…  They are incredibly comfortable, but I’m not a big fan of the longer rise that usually comes with them, and how they make my butt look (c’mon, that’s HUGE in jeans decisions :)).  So…now I cheat and just buy up a couple of sizes on a normal pair.  This is especially great when I go thrift shopping and find pairs not in my size=boyfriend jeans!  That was the case with the pair I’m wearing here.  This particular pair was hemmed already and about an inch too short.  Was I deterred from scooping up a pair of Seven for All Mankind for less than $10?  NO!  Roll them, I say 😉

Ps-it’s been raining CONSTANTLY in Seattle, so…inside pick for this one.  I’ll try and get more creative later.blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-1When you go the “boyfriend” style route, it’s best to pair it with a tighter fitting top.  That way you don’t look too frumpy (NOBODY WANTS THAT!)  This sweater isn’t too tight, but it’s more fitted. blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-2 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-3 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-4cThen I dug this leather jacket out of the trenches.  I have had this particular jacket for over 10 years!  I’m such a hoarder… BUT, I find that things always come back around, and I’m SO glad I never got rid of it! blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-5 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-8 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-9And Maya’s take on the rolled too big jeans 🙂1Maya85wksRainPony-2cOn me…

Super Mom Tip-
Thrift store shop for premium denim (great deals are out there if you look!).  Both Value Village and Goodwill have carts that you can put your child in while you shop (hands free shopping!)  Plus, a lot of times you will find jeans already hemmed perfectly (if you have shorter legs).  If you find a pair that are too short…roll them!dit-elle-Lauren
