2 Weeks 2 Weeks (I'm a parakeet)

Since I have a fantastic photographer I try to use her all in one day. These pictures are not in the order that I wore them. I mean seriously who wears the same shirt four days in a row? (No, do not give a show of hands...)

I have debated whether to rearrange them into some kind of accurate daily order, but you know what... my baby boy is probably going to be awake any minute and my 3 year old boy is potty training and walking around without underpants on... Oh the stories I could tell you about those two... *shudder* And besides I have to get the girls' home schooling done so we can go to the fair... maybe. So... here goes!

Oooo I'm a tough one eh? I feel weird smiling in my pictures because my front teeth are a little crooked. I've always been self concious about it. When I was younger I used to always cover my mouth when I would laugh. I've come along way with excepting myself but I'm still working on it. But you're scared of me in this picture. Right?
This is a picture I had to take myself with my timer... uh yeah... let's focus on the outfit and not the face shall we? I feel this is a successful attempt at mixing florals and stripes as well as black and brown. What say you?
"The Blues" blue skirt, blue shirt, blue beads oh and some yellow shoes. Too monochromatic or calming?
Weird pose but whatev.
Motorcycle- check. Barbie Jeep- check. Kids in the background- check. Wagon wheel by the tree- double check. How random is my life? (answer hint: VERY)

This is one of my go to outfits when I'm trying to show someone that you CAN wear black with brown. Wooden bead necklace and brown canvas wedges paired with a black eyelet skirt just seem right to me. Opinions?

The sun was SO bright this day and I'm a novice with my camera and my photoshop abilities are laughable. The shoes are my yellow linen pointy toe heels. And the cardigan is my gold pointenelle cropped cardi. And yes, my skin really is THAT translucent. I will continue trying to avoid skin cancer thank you. And have you ever seen a tan redhead anyway?


  1. I'm loving all these outfits. The pose in the first pic is my fave, though! And I've never noticed that your teeth are even crooked at all! I just love to see you smile,girl!

    Lise and I were laughing just this week that you have 4 little kids and how we have kids that are basically self sufficient and work part time and probably have more free time than you, yet YOU are the one that is able to blog regularly. I don't know how you even find time to even get dressed much less take pictures of it!! LOL My hat is off to you!

  2. I am lovin the last outfit so much!
    another addition to my inspiration file!

  3. We've already discussed my obsession with your yellow shoes, so you know those two outfits are my favorites... but seriously, in both those outfits I especially love the mix of colors. The shoes give the blue blouse and skirt a great pop of color and keeps the outfit from being too monochromatic; and the black sundress with the gold cardi, red belt, blue beads, and is that a pin is just a pretty set of colors together. As much as anything, I tend to be drawn to silhouettes and proportion in outfits, and those two are similar, which is probably why I like them so much.

    Kudos to you for doing this! You are inspiring me to try it some day.
