Black jumpsuits for the win! (date night)

 Whenever the Huz and I get a date night, it’s usually last minute.  We are SO fortunate to have my parents that live only a few blocks away, and if they are in town they are always up for a last minute

“Hey!  So…tomorrow, we were thinking of squeezing in night to ourselves”

Yes, I KNOW how lucky I am!!!

But, because of the short notice planning on our part, I rarely have time to think about what I want to wear!  I decided to get ahead of the game, and think about what I wanted to wear the morning after I asked my parents (aka, the day of the date night haha)  I knew that even if I had my outfit all planned out, there was NO way I’d have time to photograph it before we went out! (I was SO RIGHT!!), so I bribed Maya to go outside for a few minutes in the morning to take some pictures.  All it took was me drawing a picture for her.  It’s her newest obsession.  She finds an image on the iPad, I draw it, she colors it in and cuts it out.  On repeat FOR HOURS!! 🙂Blog Theory Lortan Jumpsuit Zara Leopard Tie Up Sandals-1Blog Theory Lortan Jumpsuit Zara Leopard Tie Up Sandals-2 Right before we went outside, Maya took my clutch and said she wanted to put a few things inside for me!

Cashmere + Jumpsuit + Clogs = comfy date night!

 The Huz was gone most of last weekend, but made it home just in time to grill up some salmon for us as our Valentine’s Day meal.  It was delicious, and SOOOO much better than sitting in an overcrowded restaurant!  And since we stayed home, I wanted to be comfortable, but still wanted to step it up a notch, since….duh, Valentine’s Day!

I’m totally on a jumpsuit kick.  First, the one from a few weeks ago, and now this one.  It’s the ease of only having to pick one thing vs separates, and…they are SO COMFY!!  Total win!Blog Inhabit Cashmere Cardigan Splendid Sandwash Jersey Jumpsuit Sven Mary Jane Clogs-1It actually stopped raining too, so I paired it with a super comfy cashmere cardigan and got to skip the coat! Blog Inhabit Cashmere Cardigan Splendid Sandwash Jersey Jumpsuit Sven Mary Jane Clogs-2 But…I HAD to show the back.  LOVE!!!  It’s the tease of an open back, but you can still wear a normal bra-yay!!Blog Inhabit Cashmere Cardigan Splendid Sandwash Jersey Jumpsuit Sven Mary Jane Clogs-3 Blog Inhabit Cashmere Cardigan Splendid Sandwash Jersey Jumpsuit Sven Mary Jane Clogs-4I wasn’t sure if Maya would even wear this jacket when I scored it thrifting, but she loves it!

I’m LOVING my shutter release, especially now that I figured out how to have it go off on a delay and take consecutive shots.  The only downside is it keeps going off even when I don’t want it to.
NO idea what was going on in this one haha.Blog outtake-1Or, one of the many times someone walks by with their dog, and asks what the heck I’m doing haha.  AWKWARD! Blog outtake-2

Pajamas!! * I MEAN * Jumpsuits for Everyday (for the WIN!!)

 Ok, I was slow on the romper/jumpsuit rage, because well….how do you go to the bathroom??!!

Well…easily.  Because, let’s be honest, the only other person in the bathroom other than you, if you are a mother, is your child.  And, they’ve seen it all before.  Yes, you have to be more careful in public restrooms not to let things drag, but…the one step dressing and comfort make that all worth while!!  SO COMFY.  SO EASY!  Aka…WIN!

And, can we just talk about the day we had on Sunday here in Seattle?!!  SO OVERDUE!  It’s been torrential downpours and frigid temps for so long, and then all of a sudden… It was like we all needed the reminder of why we LOVE living in Seattle.  And…this is why. Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-2 Oh, and for those of you wondering…braids?  On an over 40 year old mother?  YES!  Didn’t take a shower.  Curly hair mess, suddenly tamed.  DONE!  So, there you go.  I think we should all band together and make it the new “top knot”  It takes more time, but…kinda makes you look younger, and, I mean…DUH! 🙂Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-3 Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-1Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-4 Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-5 Loooove this next one!  Those clouds?  HER SMOOCH??!Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-6 Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-7 Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-8 Blog Three Dots Boat Neck Jumpsuit Gray Converse-9That little tongue as she throws the rock??  LOVE!!Blog GapKids Jean Jacket Design History Dress Pink Converse-1 Blog GapKids Jean Jacket Design History Dress Pink Converse-2 Blog GapKids Jean Jacket Design History Dress Pink Converse-3Blog Design History Dress Pink Converse-4 Blog Design History Dress Pink Converse-5 Blog Design History Dress Pink Converse-6On me…

What happens when you give your child the shutter release haha…
ALTHOUGH…all the shots where I’m holding Maya, she had it in her hands, so…photo credit goes to her! 🙂

Taking a jumpsuit from day to night…

 I’ve been a little hesitant on the jumpsuit craze.  That is to say…I have bought a few (when I’ve found a crazy deal too good to pass up), but they just keep hanging in my closet.  I always feel so dressed up in them.  Isn’t that funny?  A jumpsuit…too dressy??

Anyway, I decided to try and dress one down for day.  It was SUPER comfy!  I will admit…the whole going to the bathroom and stripping down (when as a mom you are NEVER alone/the door is always open) still weirds me out.  So, I wore a little cami and problem solved!

And yes!!!  I’m sleeveless in Seattle in FEBRUARY!!  Omg, I didn’t even realize until I typed that… “Sleeveless in Seattle” hahaha.  Good grief, I need some sleep…Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-1 Again, wasn’t so sure about the whole drop crotch craze either.  I grew up in the MC Hammer era, and it wasn’t good then.  BUT…it is pretty comfy, and hides if you’ve gained a few 😉Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-2 Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-3 Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-4 Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-5 Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-6 Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Levis Denim Shirt Leopard HM Shoes-7Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-1Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-2We took these pics on Valentine’s Day.  We’ve had these shoes for a while.  I almost DIED when I found them thrifting last APRIL for $4.25!  I was SOOO hoping they’d still fit by Valentine’s Day, and they did!Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-3Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-4Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-5Finally we ditched the jacket, because it was….too hot (seriously, say what?!?!)Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-6Hahaha.  Love how enthusiastically she blows bubbles 🙂Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-7Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-8Blog Osh Kosh Denim Jacket Little Boogaweezin Remembering Ryan Raglan Red Skinny Joes Jeans Candy Heart Vans-9Then, I took off the cami, let down the rolled cuffs, added some fun heels, and did a super easy braided bun.  I’d like to tell you that this outfit actually made it to “night” and went out, but no…just our sidewalk hahaha.

Looking at these pictures, I think I’d still keep the legs rolled if I were to do it again.  It would probably highlight the cute heels more, and still look dressy.  With the legs down (on my short legs), I think it looks a little frumpy.Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Nine West Two Toned Pink Pumps-1Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Nine West Two Toned Pink Pumps-2Blog The Fifth Label Drop-Crotch Jumpsuit Nine West Two Toned Pink Pumps-3On me…
