Knotted Peasant Top + High Waisted Crop Flares + Birkenstock Gizehs

I had all these great intentions of blogging on our Mexico pics while we were on Christmas Break, but then reality and a never ending cold (I was seriously sick for the entire 2 1/2 weeks!!) kicked my ass, and…well.

I blogged nothing.

So, I’m catching up now, and hope to eventually also catch up on the pics I took from our LAST vacation to Los Cabos back during Spring Break 2018.  Maybe for this next Spring Break??  Haha.

All in all, I’d love to do a write up of both places we stayed and what we did…eventually.

Until then.

A fairly simple comfy outfit.  High wasited crops are my go to right now.  So easy and comfy.  These had a built in hem that was too short for my legs, so I let it out, and I LOVE THEM!  Funny enough, the brand has an almost identical pair to these with the hems let out.  Great minds and all…

And, while I like to tuck things into high waisted pants, it’s so much easier and more flattering to tie tops right at the waist!

No lumps!  No fussing with retucking when you go potty-haha, yes, I went there!

Yay!

Top- Current Elliott (eBay)
Jeans- McGuire “Bessette Culottes” Mine came with a shorter hem, but I let them. (eBay)
Sandals- Birkenstock “Gizeh” (thrifted, like new for $25!!)
Keeping it Real…
I know I post these a lot, but I was a little cranky that I lost this amazing sun flare by the time I
actually got into the frame… 😦 . Imagine me IN with all this light goodness, ok?
See that woman in the distance?  Yep, of course she came RIGHT up the walkway…again…don’t
mind me!

Jumpsuits for resort vacations…

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wish we were still in Mexico…
😭🌴🌝
Reality is SO overrated!  And it’s currently raining SIDEWAYS in Seattle, so really overrated…
😂🙈
BUT…celebrating Christmas with our parents was what it was all about! Next year…if we can just get them to come to Mexico with us!
😁❤️
I know I should be posting cozy winter outfits, but…nope. I’m going to post pics we took on our vacation for a little bit longer.
😁
For me, rompers and jumpsuits are a no brainer when packing. An easy all in one outfit! I added a vintage thrifter belt and thrifted sunglasses, because I’m too paranoid to lose my prescription ones!! I always load up on cute thrifted sunglasses before any vacation and summer!
Saltwater sandals are hands down the best to bring on a beach vacation!  Waterproof and cute too! I can’t even… The only bad thing about taking this vacation at the end of my ridiculously crazy season at work, was that I really didn’t want to pick up my camera as much.  It sat untouched for the first 4 days… I was happy to not pick it up, but then knew I’d regret not taking pics!

The other bad thing about the timing of our vacation was that the sun set at around 5:00.  We were barely back from playing by 4, and to turn around and go back out to catch the sunset…it didn’t happen.

I kept telling myself I’d get up and take some sunrise pictures, because that was around 6:45 and they were AMAZING!!!  But alas…nope, that didn’t happen either.

SO…one shoot on the beach at midday was all I got.

Not the most idea lighting, but….LOVE!
And yes, Maya got to ride this horse later!!  I’ll post more about that later!  Definitely the surprise highlight of the trip for both of us!

Jumpsuit- J Crew (eBay)
Sandals- Saltwater
On Maya…
Jumpsuit- Zimmerman Kids- (eBay, but similar here)
Sandals- Saltwater “Strappy” (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
I totally messed up and stood a line farther back in the walkway than I originally focused
on…and….an entire series of super cute shots are out of fucus!  BOO!
She ALWAYS stands in front of the focus stand!  Yet, she doesn’t stand still for a SECOND, so she
cannot BE the focus stand.  Which is why I lug it around… In between moment of the shutter going off.  Always cracks me up…
Maya putting our keycard between her feet.  Outtake or marketing GENIUS?!!
