I''ll just admit that I love lace. Lovely, old fashion what lace just gets me every time. It pairs so well with my other love, military inspired jackets and this soft jacket works so perfectly with all of my lace tops!
I know I mentioned that the next time I wore polka dotted pants I'd be braver and step away from the neutral colored tops but that didn't happen. I guess I haven't figured out how to wear patterned pants with bright tops and not have it look too trendy. Neutrals at least keep this an outfit that I can wear a few years from now and not feel terribly dated in it. I worry about that with every trend, I hate to buy clothes that will look dated in a short amount of time. Unless it's something I can wear over and over again, I won't buy it. I think this is why I still won't buy a pair of floral or animal patterned pants, they just feel a little too trendy for me. (With the animal printed pants, it might be a safety related issue. Hunting season is coming up you know.)
Last time I wore my hair rolled up like this a lot of people asked how I did this. I got the idea from Elizabeth over at Delightfully Tacky. She did a easy to follow tutorial on how to do this and while I mangled it quite a bit, it is really easy to do! And while I'm talking about fellow Alaskan style bloggers, I want to give Lauren over at Introvet's Introduction a big shout out. She headed off to college down in the lower 48 this week (to one of my favorite cities I might add!) and I wish her the best in this big new step in her life! Have such an exciting time exploring Portland Lauren!
Izzy is so proud of her new shoes! Sears had a huge sale on their kids shoes this weekend and since her and Gunnar have grown out of their shoes this summer (or destroyed them) they both got to buy new shoes. Izzy found these cute pink tennis shoes and a little pair of girl high-heels. (She's going to give Suri a run for her money.) Gunnar was so serious picking out his shoes, he had to go through each pair in his size before he settled on a pair. It was quite cute!
