Happy Friday, friends! We are off and on our way to NY for my husband’s family reunion this weekend. I’m excited to see all of the children together because it’s been a few years since everyone has been together. A few things are for sure with this crowd…it will be loud (very loud), there will be plenty of laughter and there will be fantastic food (his cousin happens to be a chef!). Enduring a five hour drive with the kids will hopefully be worth it ;)
Just as we were stepping outside to shoot this look, the skies decided to open up. I was ready to call it, but my husband pushed on, got the umbrella and ran back and forth as we snapped a few shots then covered me repeatedly to keep me from getting soaked! The trees held off the rain just enough for us to get some shots and capture this look. I love this top (you first saw it here), but when I buy blouses that make a bit more of a statement, they tend to hang in my closet waiting for a night out. What I often don’t realize is that there are ways to dress these tops down and work them into my everyday. I love it paired with this long cardi which has a perfect amount of stretch to it making it that much more comfortable.
Also, these jeans…oh these jeans…I waited on them for some time and finally caved. I love them. The fit is so good. They shape, they hug and they feel fantastic. Madewell’s quality is always top notch, especially when it comes to their denim. And when they add a bit of stretch (without over doing it), well, they just might be my new favorites!
