we're back from california. i dressed exceedingly comfortable. i carried two carry-on duffle bags and a backpack full of kid activities for the plane. and that was it. i was not going to shell out $50 to check any bags. as a result, i think that i have mastered the art of packing light. 3 people(my husband couldn't make it), 2 outfits per person, 2 pairs of shoes per person and everything was mix and match for the other 2 days. plus two dresses for scarlett and me and a pair of khaki pants for reagan for church.
i didn't pose for any outfit pictures so i pulled these out of my family photos for my other blog and cropped them. my sister jokingly said that i looked like a mom. but she knows that isn't an insult, because i am a mom(the two kids and the snot stains on my sleeves are dead giveaways). i'm not embarassed of my maternal status. and that doesn't mean that i have to wallow around in elastic-waist pants and no makeup. (though i do enjoy wallowing. but elastic-waist pants are for special occasions. like toilet scrubbing.)
t shirt- gap
jeans- forever skinny gap
and i wore a very similar version of this outfit here, i just swapped out the more meticulous accessories for a more laid back look.
gladiator sandals- bakers(i wish i could find another pair of these. they are some of my most favorite shoes EVAH!)
and an action shot:
purposefully walking with very wide steps with a CARS backpack on my back, obviously going to somewhere awesome!
*every one of my 3 brothers commented on these bright yellow pants. i think they wanted to borrow them. they love me.
striped t shirt- old navy
bright yellow pants- gap real straight cords
and my fave part of disneyland were the asian tourists and their cutting edge trendy styles. it was so fun to see what they wore for a day at disney. most of them were so creative and put together. i felt like a big slob standing next to them in line. i wish i had felt brave enough to take pictures. one man was even wearing dress shoes and a three piece suit and the collar popped on his shirt. his wife wore a big fur hat, a fur vest(a la rachel zoe), dressy shorts, thick tights and knee-high boots. i wanted to join their family. i always wanted to be asian when i grew up.
