CopyCat Tuesday {Pinspiration}

I love pinterest for many reasons. One of them being that I can literally be a couch potato all day just scanning through all the pins. Food, home decor, and of course the millions and millions of outfits. I find a lot of fashion inspiration from Pinterest. I love to always look for different things. Different colors put together or prints. Different ways to wear certain items. Today's outfit I found on pinterest awhile back via Life in red lipstick. Stuck it in one of my boards and forgot all about it. I'm so glad I pulled it out for Copycat Tuesday. I just love the simplicity of the outfit.

Fashion Friday {Bohemian rhapsody}

I'm just having too much fun with styling this vest. I was unsure about it at first when I got it from Ross. I wasn't sure how many outfits I could make with it. That's my shopping rule! If I can't make three or more outfits out of an item I can't get it. Well now this awesome suede vest is a staple in my wardrobe. What are the staples in your wardrobe?

Fashion Friday Hipster Rocker

I love mixing things together that you wouldn't normally think to do.
I'll just stare at my closet sometimes and see the different colors and patterns together. Think to myself that actually works together. Sometimes it goes, sometimes it doesn't. Either the item of clothing doesn't sit right on the body or it just looked better in my head than it did in front of the mirror. It's just the fact of trying and exploring what you already have in your closet that makes the difference. This was one of those times. Just being bored one day and started pairing things together.

Hipster Rocker was born!

{Great Gatsby Party}

It was my birthday recently... {two months ago "recently"} One thing I love is the 1920's! So I figured it's my last year in my 20's let's go Great Gatsby style. So I took a little trip over to Pinterest to start my inspiration board. Since it was just a few friends over I wanted to keep it simple. However, "simple" always ends up being more stress. I just can't seem to have a stress free party. There's never enough time to get all my details hashed out before guest start arriving. I got simple decorations from Ross, Walmart, and Party City. I made the sparkly bottles out of recycled bottles and glitter spray paint. Overally it still worked out in the end... I might need to hire an assistant though.. I am now taking applications.

Conversations with a seven year old

Riley: What if we called Daddy "Dumbledore"? My new name is Hermione.

Mommy: Can you push on my back?
:::Riley pushes:::
Riley: Uhhh Can we play Restaurant because this is awkward.

{Riley riding her bike, turns off of sidewalk and into the street}
Riley: My bike NEARLY killed me!! It kept riding into the street.

{Mommy Smacks Riley's butt}

Mommy: I made that butt I can smack it if I want to.
Riley: No God did.

{Riley waiting for Mommy to help her on her bike}

Mommy: Are you snapping your fingers at me?!
Riley: No ...it's my signal for helping.

CopyCat Tuesday {Mommy/Daughter}

I honestly matching my baby girl! She does too she was striking poses left and right. We might have a little model on our hands. She gets so excited when I tell her "Let's match today". Sometimes she even says it to me. She'll see what I'm wearing and come into my room wearing something similar. "I wanted to match you today". She's my little mini-me for sure. This is a perfect mother/daughter outfit. Very simple and fun. Did I mention this is one of her favorite skirts. She would wear it every day if she could.

Fashion Friday {Suede and Geo}

I love the colors in this dress. It's so bright for spring. Might be one of the brightest hings in my closet. I got this while I was pregnant in 2014. The material was very stretchy it just snapped back to still be able to wear now. I paired it with this newer suede moto jacket from Jeans Warehouse. It's so lightweight it's like a second skin. I love the color combinations.

Mommy Monday {Birthday Pictures}

The perks of being a photographer is I get to take pictures of my beautiful babies. I haven't as much lately as I would like. But doing their pictures once a year for their birthday has always been important to me. I got a little behind this year. Luckily their birthdays are just a couple weeks apart. Now I can get both of them done at the same time. 
While we are in Hawaii I really wanted to get some at the beach. Before we are off to the next place. 
Here are some of my favorites.
