Gray Split Back Tee + White Raw Hem Skinnies + Ankle Wrap Clogs!

If I sound like a broken record, I’m sorry…

I LOVE classics with a twist!

From the front, this looks like a pretty basic outfit. And then… LOVE this back!!

And But….love her more!
But they came right back on for a dance off! Oh, and the side details of these super comfy clogs?

Yes, I’ve been wearing them a LOT! and then I decided to tie the back of this tee for a more fitted look…

Love Maya’s shoes just flung around haha.
I can’t even!

Maya was like “OH!  We almost made a circle!!” when she saw this. 🙂 Seriously, so cute with the tied back right??!! I can’t even…I LOVE capturing the way we look at each other!! My dad goes for a walk in the evening, and we see him when we are out playing after dinner.

LOVE these next images of them!

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!!

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!

White Jeans Forever…

 I’ve talked many times about my love of white jeans.  I love how versatile they are!!  In the summer with a tank, in the winter with a sweater, on a cool evening with a slightly preppy top?  All yes!

I’m pretty eclectic in my taste of clothing.  The one thing I’m not so comfortable in is the preppy look.  It’s not that I don’t like it on other people!!  I just feel out of place and uncomfortable.  I’ve tried many times to layer a button down under a shirt.  I’ve seen it look edgy on so many people, but when I try it…it just looks weird or like I’m trying too hard.  So…I paried this slightly preppy pinstiped shirt (love the little off center tie!) with ripped denim and booties, and it felt more “me”. 🙂Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-1 Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-2 Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-3 All day long, she makes me stop and look at things.  REALLY LOOK at things.  I admit to getting frustrated at times, but really…when I stop and just LOOK at what she’s showing me…most of the time, it’s a good thing.  Most of the times she’s showing me something that I would have just passed right on by and not noticed…Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-4 Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-5 Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-6 Blog Uniqlo Pinstripe Top DL1961 Amanda Sam Edelman Lisle Booties-7If you look closely, you can see a flowered headband that Maya put around her waist as a belt.  I was SO IMPRESSED!  It looked so cute, and I loooove that she thought of wearing it a different way than it was intended!Blog Old Navy Striped Tee GapKids Green Boho Skirt Link Navy Patent Lace Up Boots-1 Blog Old Navy Striped Tee GapKids Green Boho Skirt Link Navy Patent Lace Up Boots-2 Blog Old Navy Striped Tee GapKids Green Boho Skirt Link Navy Patent Lace Up Boots-3 Blog Old Navy Striped Tee GapKids Green Boho Skirt Link Navy Patent Lace Up Boots-4Love…Blog Old Navy Striped Tee GapKids Green Boho Skirt Link Navy Patent Lace Up Boots-5Blog West Seattle Sunset On me…
