How We Wore It | Fall Bold Colors

Oh hey Blog....haven't seen you in a while....ooops.

Happy Halloween! Here for a quick blog post peeps.

You know, I think every season has their moments. Spring with their flowers, Summer with the beaches, Fall with the leaves, and Winter with it's wonderland.
But Fall is my favourite time to photograph in. I actually have a very styled photoshoot this weekend....and I bought a purple smoke bomb......its going to be nutsssss.

Fall also has the best fashion! I love to get bundled up in socks, sweaters and coats. Now, you guys know how much I love a good thrift steal....this coat.....$8 at Goodwill. I know.
I love the cute colour and the length of the coat. Because you know its the worst when you raise your hands or bend over and BOOM.....back or belly is showing and that cold air just sneaks right up there! So this coat is PERFECT for Fall. Just something to snuggle in, yet stylish.
And yes, these photos were taken by my son....on my phone. Last minute struggles.
Be sure to check out my Blogger Babes at the end of this post to see their Fall Outfits!

How hard core for Halloween are you guys? Im pretty hard core. Its going to rain tonight, but we are still going. I plan our outfits months in advance! I try to make it fun and witty. This year is probably one of my favs. We went as a family costume this year, Characters from Adventure time! You can see my post HERE. It's not a super well known show as many people didn't know who we were....but you should start watching it guys. Both my 6 yr old and 33 year old loooooove it haha.

9 in, 9 out

9 Months IN, 9 Months OUT!

This Boy.
You have been quite the challenge for me, but I am so incredibly in love with you.
I don't even remember the last time I had a full night sleep. Even when he sleeps straight through the night, my body just wakes me up sometimes because it's so use to it now lol.
You are a stage 5 clinger, but ever since you started crawling and lifting yourself up off the floor (happened about 4 weeks ago), things have gotten 1000000X easier. You can explore new things on your own and trying to keep up with your siblings is the funniest things ever. However, now you find every small choking hazard on the ground and almost die like 10x a day. So fun.
You have finally started sleeping long stretches. Most nights you go from 8-5, eat, then up at 7:30.
You love food. You are moving onto the good real stuff, non of this mushy baby food business anymore.
You have 6 teeth.
Take 2-3 naps.
Best laugh ever.
So ticklish.
Loves peek-a-boo.
Weaned and Bottle Fed. I dried up with every baby about 8ish months. I tried so hard to go longer, but it just wasn't happening. But you hold your own bottles and its a game changer.
You loooooove to be in water.
And of course, you are the cutest thing on the planet.

And you will notice the photo stalker in these. Aurora was SO jealous that Roka was getting his own little photoshoot, so she was close by and try to get in a couple. Literally dying in laughter. Because Ben is in school all day, Roka has been her new play pal. She is still learning to be a little more gentle, but Ro is surprisingly taking all the rough housing well ha.

How We Wore It Together | High Waisted

I can't believe we are coming up on 3 years of blogging with these ladies with our HWWI series. And, this is the FIRST time we were all in the same place at the same time. So obviously, a major photoshoot needed to be done. I can tell you right now, this was one of the funnest shoots ever!

Let me just give a quick reason why I jumped on the 'fashion blogging' train. Being a Mom, I don't feel like I ever really get the chance to dress up or take nice photo's ever. Plus the post baby body has given me some unconfident feelings towards myself, which is never good! I guess you could say it's part of my 'me time'. I love getting ready, and I love taking photos, so doing some outfit posts just seemed so fun to me....gather a few other talented and wonderful ladies, and here we are! I've always had a love for blogging, but Instagram has kind of taken over my time instead of the blog, which is totally fine, but having the blog to tell some bigger stories or more photos about whatever is so nice to have as well. And I love that these ladies keep me blogging at least once a month.

It's crazy how much our body can change. Over the past years with photographing what I wear, Ive gone from a thinner me to a thicker me to a pregnant me to a post birth me. I've learned to dress for my body type with every stage, and it has been very complicated at times, and shopping has seemed impossible, but our bodies are amazing and it's been a goal of mine not to worry about it so much. Just go with the flow, have goals, but don't beat myself up if I don't reach them right away.

This month is HIGH WAISTED JEANS. I never thought id see the day where I would wear such a thing. But you guys, if you have a bit of tummy trouble, high waisted is the way to go!!! And no bum crack when you bend over. Double awesomeness. They give me a great shape for how my body looks right now, which brings on a big confidence booster for me! It also elongates your legs, which for my shorty little stub legs.....is a huge plus.
