    Bohemian Lace

    Let me preface this by saying: the more I look at this outfit, the less I like it. I like the pieces in and of themselves, but all together… eh. Oh well. You can’t always hit the mark perfectly, especially when you’re blogging every day! Today is a day for laziness, for cuddling up on the couch with my coziest blanket and my squishiest baby and watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries all afternoon. Asa is quite sleepy today, which is odd because he slept an hour longer than normal and took one good nap this morning. But, it’s dark and rainy outside, and he’s growing and teething, so I’m sure…

    Mama+baby style: the cat and the fox

    These past few days, I have not been feeling great about myself. About my body, about my abilities as a housewife, about my mothering… you know those moments, when there isn’t anything particularly bad about life, but it still just feels off to you? I’m going through one of those moments. And I am not crying out for comments that I don’t need to lose weight or I must be a great mother or whatever… I just want to talk about it. There are a lot of fashion bloggers who happen to be moms, but I don’t think many of them talk about life as a mom, and how it…

    Queen of Autumn

    I feel so very fall today. We’re moving for six months to house-sit this week, and I’ve decided only to take my fall/winter colored clothes, since obviously I don’t want to take ALL of my wardrobe. So anything spring or summer is staying here, and all of my fall and winter items are moving with us. I’ve never been very good at wearing only seasonal colors but I have always wanted to, so this should help tremendously! I got these tights last year when I was pregnant, and I never had the chance to wear them; aren’t they the best? They remind me of the Queen of Hearts, only orange.…

    The twilight hour

    Yesterday my husband and I had an impromptu date to see Godzilla. I hadn’t gotten dressed or done my makeup and hair all day, so once he got home I rushed to get ready in about… fifteen minutes. This is my three minute hair and seven minute makeup and five minutes to get dressed look. And then after the movie, we rushed to the water near my house and snapped pictures before the sun went down. It was so beautiful! But we literally had like fifteen minutes to get pictures. I’m surprised at how well they turned out, considering I tend to goof off and my husband is such a…

    Oh Baby…

    ¬†Well, we know what the baby is! If you’re an Instagrammer, you already know the gender since I’m terrible at keeping secrets and I’ve already revealed it there. But if you’re not, then surprise! The tally is: 27 for a Boy, 26 for a Girl, so far as I can count via Facebook, blog, and Instagram (before I revealed it). Just within the family, the vote was 14 for a boy and 12 for a girl. I love how close it was with the guesses! Hehe, but, of course, someone always loses. And… ¬†Surprise! Mr. Owl and I both were thinking it was a girl for the longest time, more…
