Lookbook: Chevron Love + Apple Orchard

September 20, 2011

We decided Saturday, that a trip to the apple orchard will become a September tradition in our little family. We found a beautiful apple orchard in the north georgia mountains….
(Chevron Top: Shopkempt, Cropped Cardi: F21, Jeans: Loft, Boots: Carlos Santana, Chains Necklace: c/o BMB, Harmonica Necklace: c/o True Birds)
Little Gabriel helped us fill our bag full of apples:) 
We were riding a wagon ride in the photo above and he grabbed my arm and wrapped it around him. It made me want to save the moment forever. No matter how challenging motherhood may be some days, it always pays off with simple moments like these. My heart overflows for them…..and their daddy:)
Also, I have been asked a few times by some of you readers what are some good ways to wear tall boots. I will work on some different outfit posts to show some variety. Over jeans with a fun top is one of the main ways I wear boots. I wore a couple layers on top to balance out the boots since this is a heavier utility style. Stay tuned for more examples:) 
By the way, I have a lucky winner of the Printed Dress from Maple Boutique!…..# 25, Drew! 
Thanks to all who entered and to Maple Boutique for hosting! Launching a new giveaway next week! (Hint: will be awesome for you accessory lovers;))

House to Home: Bookshelves

September 19, 2011

In our family room, we have  a built in wall unit filled with shelves and room for the tv. At first, I was overwhelmed by what to do with them, but it ended up being a great way to place many of our pictures, favorite books, and art. Here are just a few of them….
(A few of my favorite books on this shelf! Audrey Hepburn, A Severe Mercy, The Tipping Point, etc.)

If you look closely on the second bookshelf, you can see the picture of my best friend/sister Maria and I as little girls:) 

Gabe and I love finding old used books…especially classics like Robin Hood or Anderson’s Fairy Tales. We also have a spiritual reading shelf, photo book shelf, and art and design shelf. It seems that when they are out if front of you, the chances of taking time to read them are increased;) 
What are your current favorite reads?

I’ll be back tomorrow with an outfit post/apple orchard recap, and the winner of the Maple Boutique Giveaway (Last day to enter!)
