What We Wore: New Hair and Apple Picking

Happy Wednesday.
It's been over a year since I joined Lindsey in making a bigger effort in what I wear daily. I've learned how great it makes me feel to put an effort into myself- to feel cute. I've learned to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things together. 
This week isn't great, but we had fun.
And if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you know I got a haircut.
Yep- pretty standard- when I go more than 3 weeks with my hair in a wet ponytail, I know it's time to cut it. Sometimes it's a snip with the sewing scissors or a run to the closest Super Cuts.
This time, it was a call to my friend, Alyson (did you know she used to be a hairstylist?)
I sent her a text, she was here in 20 minutes.
Wednesday-Rain storm and sewing in last minute prep for Sew Funky Market until Alyson came over to help 'lighten the load' on my head.
 
After a quick cut and blow dry- ah-weight lifted
 
It's short and sassy in the back
longer and swoopier in the front.
blue wrap-NY&Co, navy 3/4 sleeve top and pink polka dot rainy day wellies-Target,
jeans and brown belt-American Eagle
Thursday-Fall is here- at least temporarily. Helping at the Preschool front desk for the day. It felt good to pull out the warmer clothes and the Autumn color pallet.
The girls are always full of laughs when Daddy gets home

The wind nearly blew us away, but the sunset-always gorgeous
Mommy- Tucker for Target flowy dress, wide camel belt-Target, jeans-American Eagle, Camel boots-my favorite from my best friend, ShopGal

Big Sister-stripe sweater-Crazy8, black leggings, white tee-Target, camel boots-gift from ShopGal
Little Sister-long sleeve silver star tee-Carters, pink button down-Crazy8, turquoise boot cut pants-Target, black mary janes-gift from ShopGal
Friday-Apple Picking with Big Sister's Kindergarten class in Tehachapi
 sampling off the tree- mmmm....
 doesn't Little Sister just look guilty? love that girl!
 listening to the calliope
Big Sister-pale pink henley hoodie-Old Navy, denim button down-Target (gift from ShopGal) pink boots-Target, yellow tutu skirt-Carter's, pink leggings-Walmart
Little Sister-brown polka dot fleece hoodie-Gymboree, pink tutu skirt-Carter's, jeans and boots-Target

Your hair is great!! How awesome to have a friend that does hair, right?! My BFF is a stylist.. Too bad she lives 8 hours from me! Your family is adorable and love the outfits all around. Xo!
