rad deals monday… fall boots for boys

fall boots for boys.  add instant style (and functionality) to any outfit.

i want to get more out of our boots then just being used for dressier occasions, so if i can make their use stretch i do, and here is how.

1. roll their pants above the boot

2. tuck their skinnies into the boot for a rugged look. allow the cuff to be a little wrinkled for extra points (and less ironing).

3.  let nice chinos fall over the boot for a dressier occasions.

tween style…as close to a sister as its gonna get

tween style forever 21

as you know we are a girl malnourished family. with seventeen (yes i said it) cousins on my side of the family there are only FIVE girls (feels so good to say that, just last week my sister adopted her two year old  girl foster child. more on that to come. yay gracie! we upped our numbers) and out of the thirteen cousins on the hus’ side there are only THREE girls. it is no wonder why camping and surfing and dirt bikes are part of our family fun rotation.  but what we lack in numbers we make up for pure, girly raddness. enter ruby’s two nine year old BFF’s, Saylor (which she calls Sayla) and Emma Jane.

they are fun loving and silly and thoughtful, kind and smart and creative. they treat ruby as though she always belongs with them in their little tween huddle. they give her parts in their dances and laugh when she makes them play hide and seek in the confounds of her four bedroom walls, talk about creative.

 if ruby is not gonna get a sister of her own these two definitely make up for it.  what could warm a mama’s heart more then hearing her  daughter name all her girl cousins when you ask who her best friends are? nothin it tell ya. we couldn’t have asked for better examples to our little one.
