Tag Archives: Pop Of Color

All Black with a Pop of Color | Day

 It’s week 2 for @theMomEdit style challenge.

This week (1/16-1/23) is style “All Black with a Pop of Color”

Basically this is a no brainer for me!  I LOOOOOVE all black, but do like to break it up with a pop of color.  Or…just break it up by the texture and variance of black.

All blacks are different, so I feel like if you purposely wear ones that are off, it works better. And…a silver platform sneaker…both comfy yet adds some fun!

I DIY cut the hem on these jeans, and they are one of my favs! I actually took the above pictures right before picking Maya up from school.  I actually shot this look and then swapped out my shoes and jacket for a “day to night” look (coming soon).  I did all that in a whopping 15 minutes haha.

Then….after letting Maya play after school for an hour, I convinced her to come back to the same spot for a few shots.  Ok, ipad time may have been promised… 🙂

And, yes, she rocks the “all black with a pop of color” better than me! I can’t even…. SO her!

On me…

Sweater- Banana Republic (old, similar here)
Jeans- Current Elliott “Girl Crush” (DIY distressed hem) thrifted, similar here.
On Maya…
Jacket- Zara Kids (thrifted, but similar here)
Jeans- GapKids (thrifted)
Shoes- Dr. Martens (thrifted, similar here)
Keeping it Real…
This amazing walkway is RIGHT next to a super busy street in our neighborhood.  The good news is-it’s beautiful and 5 minutes from our house and Maya’s school.  The bad news….872 cars drove by during our whopping 15 minutes here haha.
Maya kept wanting me to shout “doody” haha.
Set up of my focus stand…
Not even sure what’s going on here haha. She never has her hair all down, but the clip she’d worn to school was half out.  I took it out and was going to put it back in, but then…didn’t want to mess with it without a brush.  But, during all her dancing she kept getting hairs in her mouth 🙂

Honestly, Maya was happy as a clam since we were at a park.  I can’t believe how much I’ve changed since starting this blog in September.  I used to be embarrassed if a car happened to drive by in my neighborhood while I was shooting.  Now, I set up my tripod just about anywhere.  Today, there were 4 carloads of high schoolers eating lunch while we were doing this.  No problem… haha 🙂
