Burgundy and Blue

My California vacation has come to an end, but at least I get to relive it while sorting through pictures and posting a few of my outfits here on the blog!

Growing up as the fourth out of five kids, I had always so desperately yearned for privacy and personal space, but rarely ever got it. There was always someone barging in to my room wanting to play, or snooping through my diary while I was away, or talking on the phone when all I wanted to do was sleep. I even had a signature look, which was the eye roll, I did it so often I don’t know how my face didn’t stay that way.

The older I get though, the more I really appreciate and love the presence of my family. Now I have one sibling I call for advice, one who is my sounding board for anything, one to go out and party with, and another to just shoot the breeze with. I never really feel lonely because I am lucky enough to have people who are genetically required to be my friends!

We are the kind of family where we are honest to each other to a fault, and  sarcasm>politeness any day. I spent many years trying to change our ways, to make us more of what I considered a ‘perfect family’ was, but I finally realized that our way isn’t wrong, it is just different, and it is what makes ‘us’. I never laugh quite as hard as I do when I am with them…and hey, being polite is boring anyway! Am I right?

Here is a look I wore for one of many trips to the park with Adam and the family. I love wearing a cropped wide sweater like this one from Lulu’s, (last styled here), with a long button down or top. And yes, I brought all of my open-toe booties for this trip, so expect to see these again very soon!
