Steppin’ Out – I’m a loner Dottie, a rebel.

Posted on | February 5, 2012 | 29 Comments

on Harper >> sweater: gymboree, thrifted // jeans: old navy, thrifted // shoes: TOMS. on me >> blouse: f21 // jeans: old navy //shoes: target clearance

any excuse to quote peewee herman, amirite?

Harper picked this outfit out herself and insisted on getting herself dressed. the problem is she is still learning that last part so it usually ends up in tears because she tried to put her head through the arm hole or can’t pull her pants up or whatever.  this time was no exception. she was in her room screamcrying and don’t you dare ask her if she would like some help. because she would NOT LIKE ANY HELP IN FACT GO AWAY RIGHT NOW MOMMY. oh joyous day, i cannot wait for the teenage years with this one. how much is wine by the case? there’s a discount for that right?

you can’t see but she is wearing red and black striped socks. i love her choices.

we stepped out to a going away party for our dear friend Matto, as he is moving to portland. this is where i’d say something like “bye Matto, we will miss you!” but he refuses to even come to my blog because he is legitimately offended by the amount of cute that Harper brings. you should see him talk about it, it’s hilarious. he gets mad. about cute. go to portland or something you weirdo.

happy sunday! also knows as superbowl sunday. most importantly known as the day i dance the JIG OF JOY because football has come and gone again. dance dance dance dance

link up buddies!

    You look awesome!  I have those shoes in black and LOVE them!  This is the day I cry because I wonder what in the hell we are going to do on Sunday afternoons for the next 6 months:(  I suppose we will be like normal, non-football watching families and actually do things like leave the house?  BOO!!

    Sooooo cute! Love the polka dots. And I love Harper’s Toms…it’s all Ben wears. They are twinsies.

    Question – I just added my link but cannot for the life of me figure out how to put the badge on my blog. I’m just on wordpress.com so maybe it isn’t compatible? No amount of googling is helping b/c I am technically challenged…I can’t figure it out…

    Deanna! You must immediately find Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and watch it. Totes classic.

    The funny thing? I loved it when I was 10 years old, and now that I’ve seen it as an adult I can see all the adult jokes that totally went over my head as a child.

    I can understand his anger towards her cuteness because it’s just not fair. But you are totally cute. It’s obvious where she gets it all from!

    How cute are those shoes?! You are my fashion icon. Although, I don’t think I’m trendy enough to pull off what you do. Also, I live in the burbs in Texas and I think people may give me funny looks if I go to Chipotle dressed so hip. BUT, I DID dress up this Saturday for once, and I was SO EXCITED to finally have a reason to link up!
