taking it outside....pj day all day


So I am feeling more human, but honestly if I could roam the streets of town in my pjs, I totally would! It reminded me of an editorial that I shot some time ago. It was all about lounge wear as play wear. I know that there were days when my kids would throw rubber boots on, over their jammies, and out the door they would go. Enjoy a little play time, and go outside and make a little mischief!

I have the flu, and all I can think about is crawling back into bed, every waking minute. But, with two sick teens, and a puppy that we're puppy sitting....pjs and bed are last thing (literally) that I get to do each day. Here are some bargain pjs for kids from Hanna Andersson for $38. The price may not seem like a bargain, but the price per wear, and the hand me down factor from sibling to sibling make them worth every cent. Buy them big and wear, wear, wear!

Then from Uniqlo, a lounge wear set....can't all it sleep wear, but at a super reasonable price of $14.90, this genderless cozy is worth the money! More Uniqlo loungewear pictured too. 

Go buy something comfy, while I slide back under the covers...........adieu!

ahoy matey....my first guest blogger post


Swagger on over to ThredUp to view my first guest blogger post, a little style for a steal!

a little love....fleur and dot style


•• these are, sadly, not my images

I stumbled, very happily, upon this amazing Etsy retailer, Fleur and Dot. Oh my, do I not only love the images, I love the clothing! I wish that I could be as colorful, and cool as the Miss in all of the photos. How cool is she! All images and clothing....www.fleuranddot.mysupadupa.com

a little more salt water love


I own a pair of salt water sandals, actually I own two pairs one in red and one in brown. They are seriously comfortable, and I wear them all the time. I think my oldest daughter may be a bit annoyed that they look like kid's shoes (which they are), but for me comfort trumps everything! 

I was shooting a job for Billabong kids line, and I had on my red sandals, my little model had the exact same shoes on! We were twinsies, but she was so much cuter in her sandals!

Even big girls can rock some little girl wear!

Sx2....or sandals and socks

•• these are not my images

I love quirky, and I just put together a guest blog post for ThredUp, which will be out next week. But, the post got me thinking about spring. I love when people buck tradition, or uphold old tradition. Way back when, kids would wear sandals and socks. I know it looks questionable on grown ups, except on JCrew models! 

I stumbled across this image, and it made me think of Salt Water Sandals and some bright little socks.

a little salt water love

Salt Water Sandals are a BARGAIN, considering they can survive through one child after the next, can get wet, and still look great, come in a Skittles packet of colors, and come in adult sizes! But more to follow on that theme. 

Then think about socks! Well I love a site called We Love Colors. They also have just about every color one could imagine for tights, socks, you name it, and they are all so reasonable priced!
