An Outfit for Work, Play and Toddler Sitting

Dress: H&M | Cardigan: Ann Taylor | Tights: Forever 21 | Boots: Steve Madden | Belt: Gift From Mom

Here we go again with the boots and photos from a month ago.  I promise, these are the LAST photos for the season with these boots (I think).  This photo shoot was taken by my dad (yup, our family is totally talented behind the camera) at a park near my parent’s house.  One of my nephew’s absolute favorite things to do is go to the park, his ears perk up at the sound of “gong yuan”, or “park” in Chinese.  And then he repeats “gong yuan” incessantly and asks you to put on his shoes for him so we can leave to the park ASAP, melts my heart.  If you look at my outfits, I don’t actually own a lot of red.  But I am utterly in love with how this red bow belt (yes, bow!) looks against black and white.  And it ties together my coordinated outfit with Evan too, didn’t plan that one.  😉

Highlights from my Easter weekend?

1) Getting some orders made and packaged up to be sent out on Monday.
2) Sharing a booth at a craft fair with My Little Sunshine Handmade and going on a double date BBQ run!  If you ever come visit in Kansas City, we’ll take you to Oklahoma Joe’s, YUM!
3) Preparing for my best friend’s Bridal Shower and Wedding in Vegas next weekend!
4) Spring Cleaning. Like for serious.
5) Seeing me and Much Love, Illy’s Connection’s post go up on Susannahbean’s blog!  Head on over to check it out!

What did you do for Easter weekend?

    You look so cute and comfy, Sandy! I’ve always been meaning to try pairing boots with dresses… but for some reason, just haven’t gotten around to it. Now I feel a bit silly because the weather’s been so nice. So I have to wait until this fall.

    Is your nephew the cutest or what?! I love his adorable smile. He looks right at home at the gong yuan 🙂

    Lifestyle factors can produce strong effect on breathing and tissue oxygenation.

    In hindsight, if you’re going to have cancer have it here because MUSC and Hollings are as good as it gets at throat cancer and other cancer treatments. t possibly affect anything going on within the body.
