Tag Archives: Pop of Red

Faux Fur + Stripes + DIY Released Hem Skinnies + RED Clogs | Valentine’s Day 2018

 Never one to be on time…

We took these on Valentine’s Day…but a pop of red is always a good idea in my opinion! I’ll be doing a blog post on just how easy it is to do your own released hem that’s all the rage right now.

I did these while I was watching Maya’s gymnastics class! LOVE! Funny story.  Maya had this idea in her head of what she wanted us to do.  I could NOT figure out what she meant!

But…I think this was it haha.
This was NOT it.  Her face…haha. Singing her little heart out! Gah….I will be so sad when her teeth come in!!

That gap tooth SMILE-LOOOOOOVE!!

On me…

Jeans- Paige “Roxi Capri” with DIY released hem (thrifted, similar here and here)
On Maya…
Faux Leather Jacket- Zara Kids (thrifted, but similar here)
Denim Jacket- CrewCuts (thrifted)
Dress- Isobella & Chloe (eBay)
Leggings- (Zulily)
Boots- Timberland “Maple Candy” (thrifted, but similar here)
Keeping it Real…
Just so  you know…the images of me by myself?  They usually start with me trying to lure Maya
in, and then when she doesn’t want to….I improvise.
Yeah…she was NOT feeling it at first. And then…WHY DO I KEEP THINKING BALLOONS ARE A GOOD IDEA!??!!
They are NOT!!!  Like…EVER!
Ok, maybe 2% of the time…

Off the shoulder sweater + Ripped Skinnies + Pop of RED clogs

 One of my favorite accessories is a fun red shoe!  It makes any outfit pop… And, when you can’t think of what you want to wear, your shoes can save you!

Honestly, I took these images a few weeks ago. That will be the reoccurring them lately, as I’m in the thick of my busy season, and our weather is… well, not so great!

Currently, it’s raining sideways and we are about to have 20-30 mph winds with 40-50+ mph gusts of winds over the weekend (WHAT!?)  Needless to say, my shoots over the weekend and Maya’s soccer game have been cancelled, and we will be cuddling inside with our fire going.  Because even if we loose power, it will still go (thank goodness!!)

Hopefully, I’ll be able to catch up on work!!

THEN…she decided to do a twist mid jump!  UM…I’m so glad we didn’t watch more of the Olympics than we did.  We barely had time for any.  We only watched a little bit of gymnastics, but good grief.  I can’t even imagine what she would try if she’d seen more!blog-outtake-1 When I’m smiling off to the side in images of just me…this is what’s really going on 🙂blog-outtake-2
