Overalls + Stripes + Cashmere Wrap + Booties

 This was another one of those days where it had been rainy and 10-15mph winds all day.  Earlier in the day, Maya had had ballet.  We made Monster Cookies for my father in law (recipe coming soon!), and then the rain broke!  I asked Maya to go pick out a dress to get dressed to take some cookies to my parents too.  She wasn’t all that interested in picking a dress, so I suggested one of my favorite dresses that for some reason she never wants to wear.  Suddenly she said “ok”!!!  I got so excited, and totally wanted to get pictures of her in it.

Stripes + Overalls + Clogs

 I have to be honest.  I wondered if I was dressing below my age group.  When you are over 40, you have to think of these things (GRRRR).  I looooove overalls, on any age, so in reality, I don’t really care haha.  Honestly, when an outfit is this ridiculously comfortable, you wear it.

All that said, I got a lot of thumbs up from the other moms at preschool drop off, so….I decided to take pics after school 🙂  Blog StyleMint Striped Tee Paige Sierra Overalls Sven Lacy Red Clogs-1 Blog StyleMint Striped Tee Paige Sierra Overalls Sven Lacy Red Clogs-2 Blog StyleMint Striped Tee Paige Sierra Overalls Sven Lacy Red Clogs-3So…every once in a while, Maya is not in the mood to play and take pics.  On this day…she was NOT in the mood.  OBVIOUSLY!  I can’t help it. This still make me laugh.  Sorry, I’m that mom. 😉  So, we left and went home.Blog StyleMint Striped Tee Paige Sierra Overalls Sven Lacy Red Clogs-4Oh, but wait.  Right in front of our house, she’s happy as a clam?   Ok…Blog HM Faux Leather Jacket GapKids Black Toddler Dr Martens-1I think I’ve talked about this before, but Maya has absolutely graduated from the time when I can pick out her outfits (insert sobs from me!!)

Our morning usually consists of me showing her what I want her to wear.

Her saying “Nah…” To just about everything I suggest.

Me trying 3-87 (ok slightly kiddding) other options until she finally likes something (it is often something she’s said “NO!” to 5 other times before this!),and then me getting to pick the shoes and jacket (sometimes)

I’ve suggested this dress about a dozen times, and always got a “Naaaah.”  Then she randomly picked it out this day.Blog HM Faux Leather Jacket GapKids Black Toddler Dr Martens-2Seriously?  I want to eat her up!Blog HM Faux Leather Jacket GapKids Black Toddler Dr Martens-3  On me…

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!
