Breaking out the White Denim for Spring!

 So…spring has been late in coming to Seattle, but we’ve had a few sunny days (or at times hours) here and there, and it’s just about the only thing getting me through this never ending winter!!

One of the first thing I get excited to wear is white denim!  I have a bit of an obsession with white jeans, and have dedicated many a post to them haha.

I recently scored these off eBay (like new for $2.26-SAY WHAT?!!), and I love them! We ran right past the focus point on this one…boo hoo!!  I still like it even though it’s out of focus though.  Maybe more so because of it?  I couldn’t decide if this was an outtake or not! LOOOOOOOOVE her!  And the light this day was sooooo good!
Anyone remember Goffrey?? 🙂 I want to eat her up!!

Layering for Spring (in GREEN!) Happy St Patrick’ Day!

 I wish I could say that I totally planned for us to wear green, and I had this post all lined up for St Patrick’s Day, but….I didn’t.

It was a happy accident though 🙂

I’m sooooo over the weather that’s been going on!!  I just want to wear summer dresses (ok, no I don’t, because summer dresses aren’t my go to, buuuuuuut, right now??  SUMMER DRESSES!  I want to wear them.  And flip flops, and shorts, and anything else that’s appropriate for 65 degree plus.

Which, we are NOT seeing…

Until then, I will layer summer dresses with sweaters, jackets, and booties 🙂

Oh, Maya….you know the smile that’s next is not just me! I can’t even…

The reason I wanted to do this shot.  Other than, I LOVE shoe shots?

Both of our booties are WATERPROOF!!!

Ok, maybe mine are only water resistant.  I haven’t tested them.  She for SURE has tested hers 😉

But…if you are looking for cute water “resistant” boots, check these out.  Mine are sold out, but the brand makes more!! This is Maya’s posing face…

haha. I meant to get some sun flare, and got a rainbow flare instead-WIN!!! Oh, and waterproof, you say?  Let me test them out!!

Ok, I never told her they were waterproof.  She would have tested them out regardless…

But…her socks were dry and a wet wipe made the boots good as new!

Retail…$75.  Thrifted in like new condition…$4.25.

So, sure-walk through those puddles as a test! 🙂

Keeping it Real…
I swear, whenever I say I want to try and get a few pictures of just me…. I give her snacks, yet she always wants to be in the shots!!!
However….when I want to get a shot of her or the both of us??
Yeah….she’s off and running away, and it takes me 10 minutes to get her back. 🙂
Oh….WIND??!  Yeah, miiiiiiiiiight not be wearing this dress on windy days.  NOTE TO SELF!Yup….so her.
