Neon Florals








A couple weeks ago, I met up with the lovely Jessi of Haircut and General Attitude and we had a lot of fun, to say the least! We’ve followed each others blogs for awhile now and we actually met up at a blogger event once before, but it was great to catch up 1-1 and chat with this awesome girl! And since we were getting together, we had to take the opportunity to get some outfit pictures of each other, but of course! We stumbled upon this gorgeous location with mountains and fields and flowers and just couldn’t pass it up. But seriously, that girl is a natural model, her outfit poses totally put mine to shame!!

This is one of those long weekend, lazy day kind of outfits that I don’t share a lot on the blog, but I really do love wearing.  I promise you, I do own quite a few of casual tanks, tees, leggings… but they are mostly reserved for weekday nights when I get home from work and weekends.  The best part of all of this, is that none of it is maternity so I can wear it long after baby is born!  Which by the way, we are savoring these last few days as a family of 3… but also so ready to meet baby girl!!

I like to call this my “back to school” outfit even though I’ll probably never ever go back to school every again. Studying and exams, no thank you! I’d rather work and make money, please. But I think it’s the Converse sneakers and stripes and layers that remind me of this being a “school” outfit. It’s kind of got a Fall vibe to it as well which is when everyone’s going back to school. The morning traffic is just getting to be a little bit busier these days and there’s more kids out and about.

One interesting thing about the daycare that we picked for Austin is that they also transition the little kids by “school year”. This is interesting because most daycares/schools we’ve seen, the kids under 5 will transition to the next class on or around their actual birthdays, but this one transitions by school year. Austin has these little girl friends that hold his hand when he arrives at school and help him zip up his jacket when we pick him up and it’s the sweetest thing ever. It’s kind of sad to think that just when he started making friends, many of them will be transitioning up to the next class and others will be transitioning into his. I just hope that in my Mama heart he won’t be too sad and will be able to make new friends quickly.

First of all, we can’t get enough of this mountain view that is walking distance from our house.  It’s actually a horse trail too and once in awhile we’ll see people horseback riding our horses neighing, it’s the highlight of my son’s night if that happens!  And second of all, this hi-lo tank dress is the softest thing ever and I love it for maternity and non-maternity (it’s actually a non-maternity dress)!  The colors pop, the fit is flattering for all, and did I mention it was soft?  Oh yea I already did.
