Steppin’ Out {2}

Only 2 of us actually stepped out on Saturday – Me and Caroline to her (attempted) photo shoot with KBG Photography – but Little Evan asked to sit with the baby while we were taking her picture so he gets to be included.

Don't mind the HORRIBLE chair - it's where to dog sits so it's reeeeeally gross.


Dress – Vintage from when I was a baby (I think of it as her Little Pookie dress, because of the blue elephants)(99% of you have no idea what that means)(also, I know the elephants are green but their wings are blue)(please move on now)

Leggings – Old Navy

Little Evan:

Shirt – Gymboree

Jeans & Shoes – Target


Dress – H&M

Nursing Tank (that I was hoping wouldn’t show because I look like a SLOB) – Glamour Mom

Belt – Charlotte Russe

Cardigan – Old Navy

Ridiculous tights that only cost $2.50 so I thought I’d try them & Boots – Target

Tiny amethyst earrings – Vintage from a garage sale

Adorable poppy hair clip you can’t see – Uff Da!

Dirty old boots I couldn’t crop out of the photo – E

And a little reality check - This is what 90% of the photos E takes for these posts look like.

So about the tights. It turns out I only like bright colored tights in theory – when they’re on my legs I feel conspicuous and silly. Luckily/unluckily, I already ripped a hole in these with one of my toenails (note to self: get pedicure) so I don’t have to worry about wearing them again. I did buy nice navy blue pair that I think will feel less silly. I also won’t be wearing this dress again until I stop nursing (so, a ZILLION YEARS from now) because I have to take it half way off to get my boob out. Poor planning, Suzanne. Poor planning.

  1. Evan looks so cute in the last picture. I love his little face. I am with you on the colored tights, they make me feel like a dork. Grey is also worth trying, in addition to navy. I love grey tights.

    I love how E has his legs crossed in the first picture. And I like the bright tights – I think they look great with the dress, but I know how if you’re wearing something that you don’t like you’re pretty convinced everyone thinks you look like a jerk. Or is that just me?

    Anyway, can you dress me too? Yesterday I wore the same thing that I wore Friday – jeans that are probably 7years old, a long sleeve t-shirt that is kidlet stained, and my keen hiking boots. It’s the same thing that I’ll wear today. I need to go on What Not To Wear. Really.

  3. Great outfits on everyone!

    I love that dress! Great outfit, I don’t think you should give up on the colored tights.

  5. bwah ha ha! i JUST bought tights in the exact same color at old navy the other day, and am SO STOKED to wear them! heehee! but of course, clothes should always make you feel good, not bad, and if you felt silly wearing them you should definitely go with your instincts and choose something you’ll really love. i’m a huge fan of navy & grey tights as well. also, especially during winter – tights with sparkles sewn in to the fabric can be really pretty! (;

    loving little caroline’s dress! you’re right – i don’t get the reference. but your family is so damned cute it really doesn’t matter.

    you look LOVELY!!!

    I love super bright ridiculously patterned tights and socks, but I’m fat enough that it’s hard to find them in my size. I don’t know, I think you look GREAT in those tights and they go really well with your dress and boots, but if you’re not comfortable you’re not comfortable.

    Little green elephants with wings oh so blue, stole them and left none for you?

    We’re big Pookie fans ’round these parts.

    You all look darling. And that’s a word I use sparingly. It totally applies here.

    love everyone’s outfits. those tights are super fun! but you have to like them i guess :) i have a bright blue pair and i always feel like a smurf in them.

    I barely got a look at the outfits because I was so distracted by the wee baby toes in that first pic – so cute! Mommy likes your dress :)
