the boy is mine


Behind me. In the first photo. You can barely see him. But he's mine; I assure you.

Some other things that are mine:

sunshine
a handmade pottery mug full of milky sugary teay goodness
three wooden letter blocks, M K S
a blue mini vinal retro arm chair (yes, as cool as it sounds)
several plants (alice, charles kingsley, george, alexander, benjamin...to name a few)

Also mine: this totally awesome blazer. Yes, it is totally awesome.



And these belts? These necklaces? Also awesome.

I bought this dress years ago. This blazer I bought on the weekend. I like doing this: introducing my old clothes to my new clothes. I like it best when they become friends.

Mine as well:

friendly clothes
assorted beach rocks
a tortoise shell from Texas
a stack of K shaped sticky notes
racerocks beer in the fridge (the husband just thinks it's his)
outfit details:

blazer, smart set: $10
dress, ?: 15 or so
shoes, naturalizer: $30
tights, joe fresh style: $3
gold necklace, thrifted: $1
multi strand necklace, smart set: $2
brown belt, camera strap: from my mother in law
green belt, thrifted holt renfrew: $1
baby boy: gift from God

Heart: Kimberellie

ps. this is not my usual park attire (though not far from it); we just stopped by after church. Heels are no good for wooden park structures, btw, I kept getting my heel caught!

ps. ps. blogger seems intent on putting extra spaces in. I would argue with it; but it's cleverer than me and know html better. So I'm just going to let it have its way with my blog.

  7. Yeah, camera strap belt. Looks good with those great sandals.
    I think the chair is Your Boy's though, isn't it?
    Great buy on that blazer.
    Love you.

  8. That looks like a rad playground. I imagine one of the cool things about having kids is you can play on the playground again. And, in your case, look incredibly chic whilst doing so! I love the necklaces with this look!

  10. I love the dress, I love the colors, I love the double belt, I love the gobs of necklaces!

    Sometimes, I wear my dresses to the park (and get strange looks and accidentally flash the one father who is there with his kid) and sometimes I decide to change into something else. :)

  11. Love the pose on the slides. Priceless. And a perfect description of a mommy fashion blogger. Looking georgous but totally into the mommy moment.
    Beautiful dress. Looks great with the blazer.

  12. Love the whole outfit. The tights are a glorious colour with the beautiful yellow frock and loving the strings of chains and double beltage - if it's worth doing it's definately worth doing at least twice. xxx

  21. yes, they are all rather expensive... i love *nice* shoes... aka expensive! although i almost never pay full price for them... i found most of my designer shoes on ebay for a fraction... they are used, but i don't care ;) so normally i have my eye on something for awhile and then scour the internet for a deal, haha!

    the jeffrey campbells are really cute and now i am starting to lean in that direction.... look at this gal in hers... http://pink-kitten.chu.jp/2010/08/what-im-going-to-wear-in-fall-6.html

    tooo cute! i did a search and couldn't find them anywhere else for cheaper. but i do have a pair of jeffrey campbells and LOVE them! so it might be worth it to do a little budgeting in other areas to get them?(i do it all the time... hence why most of my clothes are thrifted and ebayed) haha!

With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
