What to wear to the Pediatric Radiologist {I only wish I was kidding…}

 I think I mentioned before that Maya has had some issues for the past 5 months.  We’ve been going to the Dr more times that I can even count.  For sure more times that I want to count.

  Through it all, she’s been such a champ.  Still full of smiles.  THIS?  A few hours after she was put under anesthesia, poked, proded, and…well a lot of other things.  Love this little resilient nugget more than anything!blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-1 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-2Me?  I just wanted to be comfy… blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-3 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-4 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-5 blog BCBG Sweater Genetic Denim Jeans Frye Harness Boots-6On me…

Is Halloween for a 2 year old for them…or us?

Please, please, PLEASE say us 🙂  I feel bad for Maya because both her birthday and Halloween fall during my busiest season.  What that means is that all the ideas I’ve had floating in my mind, just get left there and she gets a family bbq for her birthday and butterfly wings I bought off Zulily last year for Halloween…

She’s been so crazy for the butterfly wings for the last few months (I’ve got them stored in the top shelf of her closet).  Of course, when I wanted her to wear them, she didn’t want to.  See, for us right?? 😉blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-1So, we played in the leaves instead 🙂blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-2 blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-3blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-4 Mind you.  I was wearing the wings for our entire walk around the neighborhood.  Got some great looks from my neighbors 🙂  Then, finally she wanted to wear them.  Near these pumpkins-score! blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-6 blog Maya Butterfly Wings Gap tutu-5On Maya…

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 🙂
