High Heels and Training Wheels: Back With a BANG!

Back With a BANG!

What? A fashion post? You say, "We haven't seen one of those in so long!" I say, "No kidding!" 3 months long to be exact. I think I've made it perfectly clear that I do not like the cold. This "polar vortex" (said in my snarkiest voice) has not been my friend; even less of a friend to my fashion posts. I can barely talk myself into getting out in the cold for pictures but my husband? Fagetaboutit! Can't exactly do pictures when you have no one to take them, can you? Well, that's what friends in high places are for! Enter: my bestest photographer friend, Kristy!




Kristy and I have become friends via our daughters. They were in the same dance class together and now they are in the same homeschool group. Needless to say, we have had plenty of opportunity to get acquainted over the years and I have learned that Kristy is an amazing photographer. She has done gorgeous pictures of Izzy in the past and now she has so kindly offered to do some for me. So not only am I back, I'm back new and improved with some fabulous shots!








Cardigan c/o Oasap // Chambray- Walmart // Skinnies- American Eagle (thrifted) // Booties c/o Oasap

Are they not amazing?! Have I ever looked this good? And what's even better? She has a photography business! She does newborns, children, families, seniors, engagements, weddings....and kick ass fashion shoots, of course! ;) You can check out her website or her Facebook page for her portfolio and her rates. She has such creative ideas and she is amazing with kids! She had my super-shy baby giggling and smiling in no time. I'm telling you guys, she's awesome! I mean, have I ever looked this good? Let's all say it: "Thaaaank yooou, Kristy!"


So let's talk about the clothes now, shall we? Can't have a fashion post without the fashion! I have been wanting an Aztec print sweater for quite some time now but, as with most things, I was holding out until I could find a good price on one. I've told you before, I am incredibly frugal. This one from Oasap was $20 and that was just about perfect for me. It was the perfect color but the black and navy were enticing as well. If only I could buy all 3! But this can be styled so many ways, I can't wait to have fun with it!




P.S. To let you know how I truly feel about the Polar Vortex, here's my favorite German, Flula, with a pretty accurate account (be prepared to laugh....a lot):

"Spring: I want your flowers and butterflies also"

  1. I LOVE that cardigan. I wish I had someone to take my photos. My husband doesn't really have the time.. I usually end up taking them in the mirror with my camera phone or using the timer on my camera!!

  2. I won't lie, it's really nice. I got lucky! I used a timer for so long when the weather was nice but since I lack a tripod, I would set my camera on the rail of our deck....which is now covered in 4 inches of snow! I can't wait until winter is over! haha Thanks for stopping by, Alex! :)

  5. So I started looking through the pics obsessed with your hair-- LOVE the color. But then I got to the point where the mustard booties made their appearance. Never would have though to pair them with the olive/grey jeans, but I love they way they pop! Great seeing a new face through #RealMomStyle!

  6. Thank you so much! Believe it or not, that hair color comes from a box! I pay $3.97 to color my hair each month! haha And you know what, when I pulled this outfit together I had a totally different pair of shoes picked out but I love these booties and I rarely get to wear them so I said why not. I can't really take credit for the pairing; it was just basically a kid with a new toy kind of scenario. haha Glad to see it looks alright though! :) Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment!

  7. I'm so happy you decided to get outside and do a post — the aztec cardigan is what caught my attention followed by the booties. The zip in the back is my favorite!

  28. Aww that's a bummer! Can't find what you're looking for there or something? I love them because they have great prices. I try to hold out on trendy pieces that I know won't last long until I can find them for cheap. Oasap usually has what I'm looking for...most times! I'm glad you stopped by, thank you! :)

  29. Thank you, Merrie! It's definitely a bold print and just a touch out of my comfort zone but I'm glad I took the chance! :) Thanks so much for stopping by!
