Wait a second. Where are we: at home? at the beach? at a park? at a Freemasons meeting? Yes, all of the above. Except for the Freemasons meeting, just kidding. Or am I?
This is what we wore to grab some ice cream, head to the beach and play at the park. I am in denial that it's still summer in L.A. It's October, by jove! Let the crisp breeze commence! Let there be pumpkin butter and heavy cardigans and closed-toe shoes! Alas, I wore too many layers and had to push back my freshly trimmed bangs with a headband to avoid sweat cling. And, truthfully, I just wanted to wear my new jeans.
I ordered these slim-fit colored jeans (they are not leggings, event though that's what they call them) online and picked them up Thursday night at the store. I wasn't expecting much because, um, I'm not sure whether skinny jeans really work for me, but I don't even care what they look like at this point because they're just. that. comfortable. I love them and want them in every color of the rainbow. I am wearing the spectrum blue, which looks purple in person but apparently photographs more electric blue, so maybe the colorway is listed correctly after all and our bare eyes deceive us. Ponder that for a moment.
Alexa is wearing a dress (seen here at nine months) as a tunic. Her little 18-month jeggings are getting shorter and shorter with each wear.
H has a problem with sunglasses. More than one if you consider that he lets Alexa break each pair he buys. But the main problem is that he can't find a pair he likes. After looking and looking for the perfect pair of sunglasses at every single store we've been in for the past six months, we happened to be walking around the L.A. County Fair last month when these called out to him. That's what I love about him: his ability to spot practical eyewear even while surrounded by fried Twinkies and loud music and other shiny things.
