Life Shots/OOTWKD

Hi there! Long time no post! It's been quite a busy week for me - my boss had a baby and was out all week so I had an extra load on my plate and my husband went to Wildflower, CA for a half Ironman and I played single Mom. I'm pretty exhausted from our amazingly fun weekend.

First, I can officially say we had our first full weekend of sun and pretty warm weather. It was awesome! I never even checked the temp but I believe we were in the high 60's and had 2 full days of lovely sunshine. I am in heaven!

Saturday, Ella Grace and I ran so many errands and then headed to a friend's little girl's 1st birthday. On our way home, we stopped downtown and hit Anthropologie (yes, I bought a few summer things as I was in the summery mood), bought some Mother's Day gifts, and had a yummy Mexican dinner, just us girls! We had so much fun!

Today, we walked to the local coffee shop and Ella played in the toys area there. We then headed to the park and enjoyed a good hour of swinging and running around. I was even brave and took our pug, Otis, with us. We then made a grocery stop, cleaned house, cut grass, pulled weeds and then Daddy was home. Talk about a busy day! I'm pooped!

Anyway, I happened to pull out my camera and tripod on Saturday with an attempt to take an "outfit of the weekend" shot. Did I mention how hard it is to take self portraits! I now realize why I don't do this often. So, here are my "life shots"...I just love the chaos in the background!

Anthropologie cardigan
Banana Republic tank
GAP wide legged trouser jeans here (size down 1 size)
Anthropologie Dearie Me wedges
Banana Republic woven cord necklace
Palabra Designs Angel necklace (Facebook page) - I never ever take this necklace off unless I have to for weddings:)
Diana Warner earrings

And the kiddos...

Ella in a Little English smocked dress
And his own skin

Have a great week! We head to Disneyland on Thursday. I'll be sure to post some magical pictures upon our return.


  1. Love the "texture" that EG and Otis bring to the picture!. This may become thesignature of your blog - every OOTD with background chaos! Loved the outfit (yours)!

  2. Love, love, love your outfit! EG looks fab as always too.
