Leather Pants… The new Mom Jeans? :)

 I would have scoffed at the title too, but hear me out.  This week I tried to work in pants that have been sitting in my closet gathering dust.  I tend to “save things for a special occasion”, and then…never wear them!!  Leather pants for day?  Playing in a park??  YES!  Maya got mud ALL OVER ME when I kept picking her up.  Since I had wet wipes handy, I just wiped it right off.  TADA!  Leather Pants… The new mom jeans! 😉  Granted, leather pants can be SPENDY, but I scored these off eBay for $50-whoop whoop!

Took the tripod and ventured out of the hood again.  Looking for ducks…that I may have told her would be there and weren’t :{Blog Zara Sweater Goldsign Leather Pants Booties-1 Blog Zara Sweater Goldsign Leather Pants Booties-2See?  No dirt!

White + Black & a pop of Red

 I’ve mentioned before my love of white jeans.  They really aren’t practical when you have a toddler, but I can’t help myself.  They make me think of summer, which is a nice thing to think about right now 🙂Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-1 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-2 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-3Can I just say how much I love these shoes??  I got them off eBay for a steal, and wasn’t sure how cool they really would be until I got them.  LOVE THEM!!

Pretty sure my neighbors thought I was even more crazy that usual while I was trying to get this shot.  Balancing the camera on the ground, while kneeling on a towel to focus/get the exposure (had to protect the jeans!!)  As a photographer, I always have these shots in mind, and I love trying to figure out how to do them myself 🙂 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-4 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-5 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-6 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-7AND THEN….Maya went traipsing through the mole hills that have attacked our neighborhood.  She looks quite pleased with herself, doesn’t she?   There went my nice clean white jeans…but hey, that’s what stain remover is for!Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-8 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-9 Blog Genetic Denim JCrew Apron Top Zara Sweater Superga Studded Shoes-10On me…

Neutral Shades…

 I bet you’re thinking…”I think I’ve seen that outfit recently…?”  Ok, yes.  It’s the oatmeal version of the Zara Boyfriend sweater that I wore last week.  I LOVE IT!  Am I the only one that buys things in multiple colors when you find something you love?  Especially if it’s on sale?!  Anyway.  So comfy, and I love the elbow patches.

Side note-don’t you just want to squeeze her (obviously, I do!)??  Since I take all these with a self timer, I don’t really know what she’s doing until later.  GAH!!  I could just eat her up.Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-1 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-2 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-3 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-4 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-5 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-6 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-7 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-8 Blog Zara Boyfriend Sweater J Brand Frye-9On me…
