Cold Shoulder Blouse + Released Hem Skinnies + Booties + Leather Jacket

 To be honest…these were taken almost two months ago from Easter!

Gah!  One of these days I’ll get my act together and blog more consistently, but that day is not now…

BUT, I figured I need to blog some of our warmer clothing looks soon or I’ll have to just wait til next fall haha.  And you can just wonder why Maya looks so young 🙂

I’m ALL about loose tops for the holidays, so I can hide my food baby haha.  We had a pretty casual Easter meal, so I decided to pair this silk top with some released hem jeans.

I undid the hem myself with seam ripper!  Anyone interested in a tutorial?  It’s super easy!  I showed how in my Instagram stories under DIY Denim, but could make a blog post at some point!
I love that this jacket looks like a “denim jacket” yet, it’s the most AMAZING leather!!

Thank you eBay!
I asked if everyone wanted to come out for a family pic, and got a resounding universal “NOOOO!”

Thankfully, I can still bribe Maya to come out quickly for a few! The sun kept coming out, and then hiding…such a nightmare for taking pictures, but whatever… Oh, and Maya’s leggings are actually work out pants that she wore on our morning walk that she didn’t want to take off.  It wasn’t a battle I was going to fight…

Again…bitter about the sun blowing out so much of these shots, but…I’ll get over it. This next one is SO HER!!!! hahaha.

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!!

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…
