#TMEStyleChallenge Week 4 “Make Wide Legged Crop Pants Work in Winter”

 We’ve had SNOWPALOOZA the last few days.

(inserted to add that we took these pictures during Snowpalooza 1!  It came back with a vengeance!!  Those pics coming soon)

 And by that, I mean we had maybe 4-5 inches of snow 😂, but Seattle basically shut down. All my relatives that live in the midwest were laughing at me, BUT…it got down to 7 degrees 😳 and everything was a sheet of ice!
Sooo much fun was had yesterday if you follow our stories. We went from sunrise to sunset. My body hurts! 🤣😩

Today, while we waited for the YMCA to open I decided to do another spin on @TheMomEdit #TMEStyleChallenge which was “Make Wide Legged Crop Pants Work in Winter”.

Since Maya was home from school again, she did it too!  I wore these jeans in Mexico, and it’s so funny how they look like completely different jeans styled for the winter! When you see me looking at the camera, you know I had a remote malfunction, and Maya is standing by the tripod just snapping away! I love layering long sleeve tees under loose knit sweaters in the winter!  Even better if they are striped tees!  BUT…I thought that might be a bit too much for this outfit.
I can’t even with how cute she is. I mean… You know I love a shoe shot… Maya had literally been in a snowsuit for days, and…honestly days AFTER this, so to put her in normal clothes seemed weird, BUT…I layered to the nth degree haha. GAH!!!  And this morning light?!!!  I was in HEAVEN! Blowing “smoke”….

On me…

Coat- Vintage (thrifted)
Sweater- Inhabit (old, similar here )
Jeans- McGuire “Bessette Culottes” Mine came with a shorter hem, but I let them. (eBay)
On Maya…
Hat- H&M (old, but similar here)
Jacket- BLBY ? (thrifted, but similar here and…clearly a knock of of HERE!)
Sweater- (thrifted)
Jeans- Gap Kids (thrifted)
Shoes- Stevies (thrifted)
Keeping it Real…
My remote isn’t expensive, so it stops working on occasion…
If Maya is with me, I just ask her to punch the shutter a few times after I’ve set it up.
AND THEN….50 shots later… Yup, this is pretty much ALWAYS the first shot we take.
(all pictures taken with a shutter release and tripod, except ones of Maya :))
