Tag Archives: White after Labor Day

Well, for those of you on the mailing list, you got another one of these posts last night.

There was a bit of a formatting issue, so…I’m redoing it! Seems WordPress is a liiiiiittle different after taking a two year break-ha!

 I took a loooong break on blogging.

BUT…I have SO many images and memories to catch up on.  I will apologize in advance for the massive influx of posts lately, because I have a bee in my bonnet to get these on here.  I’ve been posting regularly on Instagram because it’s easier (feel free to follow us there!)

These were taken two years ago on Thanksgiving. We actually had a DRY Thanksgiving and time before the meal with actual DAYLIGHT. Those three things rarely all happen…

This was back when Maya still loved wearing fancy dresses!  Sadly, Covid changed that.  Or…not sadly?  Honestly, I don’t care, but I do have a closet full of unworn dresses I need to sell now.



On me…

Sweater- Joie (ebay)
Dress- Joie “Sorne B” (ebay)
Boots- Frye “Carmen” (thrifted)
On Maya…
Jacket- Me Jane Kids (thrifted)
Dress- Posh Peanut (thrifted)
Boots- Frye (thrifted)

Vintage Levis Jacket + Stripes + High Waisted Destroyed White + Clogs

Took these super quick one day.

Ok, that day was last year.

Like 3 minutes from the first shot to the last haha.

It’s easy to say now that I took these in 3 minutes…it was easy!  But…I can’t even manage to run outside for 3 minutes now!  And clearly…didn’t have time to blog these even though they took me 3 minutes to take.

This is my total transitional weather outfit.  Whether that’s fall or spring.

Lightweight long sleeve top (usually striped ha!), denim jacket, destroyed jeans, and comfy clogs.

And, who else thinks the no white after Labor Day is a joke?


On me…

Jacket- Levi’s (thrifted, similar here)
Top- LNA (thrifted, similar here)
Clogs- Kork Ease “Zamora ”  (eBay, similar here)
Keeping it Real…
Not many outtakes when all I took was 7 images!  I did take a shot from behind that wasn’t very
flattering, BUT(T!) it’s not getting posted 😉

Striped Tee + White Crop Flares (for fall!)

 I mentioned on Monday when I wore a “little white dress” that I do not adhere to the “No white after Labor Day” rule.  One of my favorite ways to break that rule is white denim.  I looooove white denim, and it’s a repeated trend for me here on the blog!

Little White Dress + Boots (Yes, after Labor Day!!)

 I’ve never been one to adhere to the “No White After Labor Day” rule.  I say wear white all the time!  It’s so versatile, and there’s something about crisp white clothing that makes me feel so good!

Granted…they don’t stay crisp and clean for very long, but that’s what Oxyclean is for haha.

I actually scored this dress new with tags ($145!) at Goodwill a few years ago for $8, but totally forgot I had it!  Yes, I’m a pack rat, and can go shopping in my own closet.  I have issues, but I certainly wasn’t mad about finding this gem!blog-terra-nostra-white-dress-aquatalia-boots-1 blog-terra-nostra-white-dress-aquatalia-boots-2 blog-terra-nostra-white-dress-aquatalia-boots-3 blog-terra-nostra-white-dress-aquatalia-boots-4 blog-terra-nostra-white-dress-aquatalia-boots-5My new favorite picture of the two of us!!blog-terra-nostra-white-dress-aquatalia-boots-6blog-gapkids-floral-dress-pink-saltwater-sandals-1 The many poses of Maya…blog-gapkids-floral-dress-pink-saltwater-sandals-2 blog-gapkids-floral-dress-pink-saltwater-sandals-3 I can’t even handle this next one!  I want to EAT HER UP!!!blog-gapkids-floral-dress-pink-saltwater-sandals-4 “Mommy, look!  I’m an old lady!!” haha.blog-gapkids-floral-dress-pink-saltwater-sandals-5 blog-gapkids-floral-dress-pink-saltwater-sandals-6The Huz was out of town for the first part of last week, and I vowed to get some sunset shots of us while he was gone.  Well…we missed it the first few nights, but got them this evening!  Actually, I really wanted the sun poking through the trees (which we got), but after we left the park, I had to get out of the car and grab this shot too… So lucky to live where we do!blog-west-seattle-sunset

Trying to wrangle Maya back into the shot haha
blog-outtake-1 I attempted to take a few vertical shots, but my lens was too heavy and sank down!  Oh, and Maya was standing right in front of the camera haha.  The latter wouldn’t have been a big deal if I’d actually captured the top half like I meant to!
Can we call this a shoe shot? 😉blog-outtake-2

{Winter} White Jeans…a no no? I think not! :)

 I’ve mentioned before that I have an odd obsession with white jeans.  The thought of not wearing them in the winter just never occurred to me.  Then…I found some for Maya!  So, yes, we are twins today.  Oh, well.Blog DL1961 Kate Striped Aqua Sweater Boots-1 Blog DL1961 Kate Striped Aqua Sweater Boots-2I’m not sure how I feel about the chambray shirt layered under the sweater.  I LOVE it when I see others layering up, and I wanted to try it.  I felt a little preppy, so I thought adding destroyed jeans and boots would make it more “me”.  That’s what I love about fashion.  Taking things you like from others and making it your own!
