DIY Ripped Denim, Vintage Clogs and Purse = Thrift Store Scores!

 I actually took these a while ago during a random sunny (albeit WINDY AND COLD) day.

Ps- Can you spy the Space Needle?  I had a hard time getting us both in the frame 😉Blog hm conscious collection top 7 FAM DIY destroyed Straight Leg Jeans Vintage Clogs-1Do you have a pair of straight leg denim that you don’t know what to do with?  It’s kind of a weird cut for me, BUT I often find them at the thrift stores for so cheap, so really…I have to, right?!  I usually just cuff or roll them (my answer to just about every jean, since my legs are so short!), but I got this pair of ridiculously comfy 7FAM straight leg jeans for $7.50!  I knew that I wouldn’t wear them as is, so, I cut off the hem to my favorite length (measured off a pair that I love), and then cut/distressed them a little.  I’ve worn them SO many times now since!

Blog hm conscious collection top 7 FAM DIY destroyed Straight Leg Jeans Vintage Clogs-4It LOOKS sunny and warm, but…it wasn’t.  It was at our house, but when we got down to the water?  Not so much.  Maya had been in the car next to me eating her snack.  When I got her out of the warm car, she had a bit of weather shock! Blog hm conscious collection top 7 FAM DIY destroyed Straight Leg Jeans Vintage Clogs-5And then…she was ok.  Seriously, doesn’t she look like a grandma on her way to the bus stop!?? hahahah 🙂

I really hadn’t planned on taking pics this day.  She had gone to preschool in the morning, and it’s all about “comfort/what you don’t care about getting ruined” /what I can get ON her and out the door in 15-20 minutes.  Let’s be honest, I still want her to be cute, but…what she goes to preschool in isn’t necessarily what I blog all the time.  Mainly too, because once she’s gone to school, I don’t have time to take pics after/or it’s got paint/mud on it!Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-1Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-2Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-3Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-4But get her near the beach, throwing rocks and sticks, and she’s happy. 🙂Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-5Blog Grandma Cardi Old Navy Denim Dress Cherokee Booties-6On me…

Vintage Clogs!

I’m so excited clogs are coming back in style.  Comfy, yet give your legs some length?  YES, PLEASE!!  I have a black pair that I got in 2002 for a trip to Italy that I pulled out of my closet and have been wearing a lot lately!

I’ve been wanting a pair of vintage open back ones, and then what do you know!?  I dropped some clothes off at my neighborhood consignment store last week, and this beautiful pair was just waiting for me.  And, they were free with the credit I had on file-SCORE!!Blog Zara Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Vintage Holje Clogs-1 Blog Zara Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Vintage Holje Clogs-2 Blog Zara Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Vintage Holje Clogs-3I had found these for Maya at a thrift store a few months ago for $3.99!!  They retail for $68 and are SO well made!  Honestly, I’m not sure they are the most practical toddler shoe (for running and playing).  They keep falling off when she runs, but maybe she’d get used to them?  I hope she does! 😉  This is the first time she’s worn them outside of the house.  She loves to clomp around the house though 🙂 Blog Zara Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Vintage Holje Clogs-4 Blog Zara Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Vintage Holje Clogs-5 One of my favorite things about this next one is the lone clog that was flung off 😉Blog Zara Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Vintage Holje Clogs-6Blog Gap Sweater DL1961 Chloe Whiteley Toddler Sven Clogs-1Blog Gap Sweater DL1961 Chloe Whiteley Toddler Sven Clogs-2Blog Gap Sweater DL1961 Chloe Whiteley Toddler Sven Clogs-3Blog Gap Sweater DL1961 Chloe Whiteley Toddler Sven Clogs-4Blog Gap Sweater DL1961 Chloe Whiteley Toddler Sven Clogs-5It was so funny…

Here’s an image that shows how I got the shot above of me holding Maya up in the air.  Blog OuttakeI placed the stand where I will end up being.  The little toy at the end makes it easier to focus on :).  I press the shutter halfway down to lock in my focus, and then switched it over to manual focus so it would stay focused on that spot.  I then hit the timer, ran to where the stand was, asked Maya to jump to me, and there you have the above shot!  One of thees days I will do another video that shows the whole thing.  I know I keep saying that…
