My favorite mornings occur when I miraculously wake up after my first alarm and have a smoothie in hand as I walk out the door 45 minutes later. We snapped these photos yesterday, right before I left for the office. The light was perfect and the carpools that usually line our street had not yet formed. Harlowe played sweetly in the yard until we were done shooting, then KW dropped her off at school so I wouldn’t be late to my 9am meeting. Mornings like yesterday’s remind me to be grateful for my family, our time together, and the quiet, simple moments that punctuate our lives.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been battling minor illnesses, burning daylight at the office or just feeling too ‘meh’ for an outfit post (you win, yoga pants!). Naturally, I was eager to end the radio silence (and have a few new everyday staples to share!) This faux leather skirt from Le Tote is my new wear-with-anything piece, along with this boyfriend flannel. I love pairing them with leopard pumps and layers of gold. (Granted, I like pairing most things with leopard pumps and layers of gold.)
