Fall Fashion Week: Day 7

Today is the last day of fall fashion week. I've had so much fun doing this - and everyone has been so sweet with the comments they left. And I loved looking at everyone's style and being inspired. You girls are so beautiful!
Today we were at my cousin's wedding and the pictures were taken there. It was at a sweet little inn in Altamont NY. And as I type, I'm sitting in a parking lot in Saratoga Springs - quickly using the internet while we have it here.
My photo shoot from today includes my beautiful sister, Marla, who has also been doing fall fashion week, the cutest baby girl ever, my niece Fabienne, and even my handsome baby brother! So much fun getting to do pictures with them!

Fall Fashion Week: Day 6

{I wasn't feeling great while taking these pictures - a lot of them seem so serious.} This outfit isn't anything too stellar - but it's warm & comfy - perfect for fall. I love this sweater - it is silk cashmere - so soft and comfy. And the boots - my fav. Cait gave them to me a couple of years ago for Christmas and I fell in love. How she finds such rad vintage shoes for my big feet is amazing {I wear size 10. Yea, I know.}.
I absolutely love this building. The brick walls and mustard trim are fantastic.

{My photog was making fun of me and making me laugh in this last picture. Love him.}

Fall Fashion Week: Day 5

I must start out today's post wishing my favorite youngest brother-in-law a very happy birthday! And the boys wanted to give a little shout out to Uncle Andy too:

{Ahhh - these boys make me laugh everyday. Did you notice that Lincoln & Levi are holding each other's legs? And I love how Levi thought it was so silly that the older two were singing. Love these little men to pieces.}
We love you Andy! Wish we could be there to celebrate with you! {And bake lots of yummy treats for you...}

I found this little granny-dress {that's what Mike calls it} a couple of weeks ago and thought it was too cute to pass up. Plus it was half off. Should have worn my sunnies for these pictures...squinty-eyes!

There was lots of creepiness on this wall. Snails, huge gross spiders {that didn't make the shot}. You can bet your bottom dollar there was a lot of distance between where I posed and where those creeps were hanging out.

Shew...We had our first MOPS meeting of the year this morning and it's my first year as co-coordinator of our group. I've been planning & getting ready for this for weeks and now I feel like I can just crash. It was a great time...I love getting to hang out with other mamas.

Malacai & his BFF, Issac, hanging out together this afternoon. {Is anyone else disliking the new instagram? I'm giving it two thumbs down...}

I wanted to let you know that I'm guest posting on beautiful Morgan's blog today: Mama Loves Papa. Head over there to check out a fun artsy/crafty project I do with my boys.

Fall Fashion Week: Day 3

It is starting to look a bit like fall around here...reds, golds, and purples peeking out here and there. It's my favorite time to go for walks in the woods. Cool, crisp air. Crunching leaves. Color everywhere. {I do not normally dress like this to go for walks in the woods...}.
I am super excited that my big seester, her husband and little LadyCakes come home today!! I've missed them much while they've been out traveling the country. How does a bonfire, apple crisp and coffee sound?
{And internet has been slower than molasses the last couple of days and it's driving me bonkers!!}

Fall Fashion Week: Day 2

I know this outfit doesn't scream fall - but the heat, o my this fall heat. In the 80's today. You can't expect me to get all cozied up...I hate being hot.
This dress is another fun vintage thrift find. It is very comfy and it would be great for breastfeeding - it has a zipper down the front. Nifty. And again - dress with pockets - love!
It kind of reminds me of an airline stewardess dress...peanuts anyone?

Fall Fashion Week: Day 1

I've been reading Emery's blog for a while now. I love her passion for Jesus, her incredible style, and she's also got three handsome little boys! I've always enjoyed the Fall Fashion Week that she hosts and decided this year I should participate. So here we go!
{Disclaimer: I am not always wearing the outfit on the day it was posted. I like to take pictures when the boys are otherwise occupied, so if Mike & I happened to get some time alone, I had him take some photos.}
The weather is not feeling very fall-ish right now. It's been quite warm. This dress is another one of my great vintage thrift finds from over the summer. I think the colors in it are nice for fall. And it was almost a bit muggy when I took these yesterday, so my hair was out of control {plus I had shampooed it yesterday too. Yes, I do not shampoo my hair every day. Only once or twice a week. Curly, frizzy hair + shampoo = out of control}, thus the bun. {I think I look silly with my hair up since I don't wear it like that a lot}.

I love, love these shoes. I found them last month while out thrifting and they are so comfy and cute. I could wear them every day, all day. They do have that "teacher-walking-down-the-hall-sound" though. :)

I just got this ring last weekend at a garage sale. Mike calls it my coffee bean ring.

I can't figure out what animal my earrings are. Fox? Lynx? What do you think? And my favorite thing about this dress - it has a pocket!!

And, yes, I know - my legs are sooo white. That's all I could think while looking at these photos.

Levi's Vintage Style: Corduroy Suspender Pants

I love these sweet little corduroy pants. Unfortunately, they are just a bit too small for Levi. I had to roll the legs because they were too short - I think they look really cute as knickers though!
The apple crate was a birthday present from my baby sister - it was used as a prop at my fabulous party and then I got to keep it {I'm trying to get a collection of crates to use for storage in my mud room}! My trick for getting pictures of Levi is to sit him or stand him on something so that he can't get down and run around! He actually really liked sitting in this crate.

Laughing at his big brother {Cai}, who was running around the yard while I took pictures.

Sleeping with Cars...

As I was laying in bed last night, desperately trying to fall asleep {why does it take me so long to fall asleep??!}, I rolled over and felt a hard, small lump tangled up in the sheets. Pulled out: Lightening McQueen!

Courtesy of Malacai.

Also courtesy of Malacai: being startled awake {ok...only Mike was startled awake. I was still desperately trying to fall asleep. I was just startled.} by an alarm going off. Apparently the kid had big plans for 12:02am. The alarm in his room started going off and it sits right next to the monitor was quite loud on our end. Malacai didn't even wake up.
