Whilst shopping at Forever21 one week postpartum, I came across these rayon patterned pants. Normally I would never buy or wear anything so loud (prints kind of scare me), but these had an elastic waistband and totally fit the bill of what I was looking for: something that would fit me until my belly and hips shrunk back down to size, and something uber comfortable. Plus, I was kind of drawn to the print instead of being frightened by it.
First let me say that I would normally post a What I Wore article on a Wednesday, but this week I’ve been busy hosting some friends of ours who are visiting from California. In the interest of spending time with them and enjoying life and great friends, I haven’t had the time to devote to the blog this week – and I’m totally ok with that, because life is meant to be lived and not just typed! So today I’m breaking all the rules and I don’t care one bit. Now, for that fashion post…
A lot of times when I take pictures to post here for What I Wore Wednesday, it’s on a day that I have somewhere to go. I look better on those days and feel a little more picture-worthy. Although I don’t wear a lot of sweats and do generally try to dress well each day (because it makes me feel a little bit better about the fact that I’m covered in sand, food or spit up), I definitely have my days where shorts and a top are the staple – especially when it’s 90+ degrees in Colorado like it has been lately.
I have a problem. When I get obsessed with something, I can’t get it out of my head… and that’s kind of what’s happening with me and Nordic sweater leggings right now. Snowflakes, reindeer, Nordic, fair isle; call it what you will. I am obsessed.
The weather is finally cooling off here and so I’m starting to transition my wardrobe from summer into fall. The easiest way to do this I find is with sweaters and tights, which pair nicely with summer dresses. And of course I bust out the boots – lots and lots of boots.
Holidays have suddenly become so much more exciting now that we are living semi-small town life. Our neighboring town of Louisville had a great Labor Day parade that had me nostalgic for my childhood, growing up in a small farm town in Michigan. Every year as a child, we would gather on our town’s Main Street and watch the Farmer’s Festival parade. I remember old cars, tractors, and candy – lots of candy.
This is so not me; I rarely buy shoes. I would rather spend my money on clothes, and that’s how it usually happens. But in an effort to put together the perfect outfit for our upcoming family photos, I purchased these little ladies. And, um, I love them.
Hello, friends! After a long, busy weekend of traveling, I am finally home and have gotten a spare moment to write. Our trip to Colorado was tiring, but I feel so excited and content with our upcoming move. We found some areas we really love and are hoping to find available housing there in the coming months; at which point we will pack up and take off!
