Fall Fashion: A Day At The Carnival

What I'm really wearing today: abercrombie sweats and a hoodie sweat shirt.
I was up late last night working and I'm planning on having a no make up, dirty hair-lazy day today.
BUT, I would love to show you what I wore for our family photos a few weeks ago!!!!
I really tried to edit these down and just pick a few.....
This was pretty much my dream photo session. I'd been wanting to do photos at a carnival for months. My friend Bobbie and I had talked about taking a little trip to Logan dale for the big fair they hold each year, but when I saw this little one by our house, I called her and she came along to shoot these for us. She's amazing. I was most excited to ride the Farris wheel but I knew that Conrad might get antsy, so I brought along my secret weapon BUBBLES! I'm glad I had them because he DID in fact get antsy.

I am wearing:
Skirt: Anthropologie- It's My Mom's....she's got great taste in clothes.
Thanks mom! <3
Shirt: H&M
Shoes: Nine West

{We hadn't gotten our photos done in a LONG time, so it was fun to do this and I can't wait to get some of these printed out and hung on the wall! Thank you again, Bobbie. You do incredible work. There's something special about having your photo taken by a good friend. It's like, they "get" you, or know you. We had the same vision. I love her art. I never know what to expect-and that's what makes it so magical and fun.}

The boys are wearing:
Dustin: Express & Hush Puppies
Conrad: Shirt-Target, Tie & Shorts- thrifted, Shoes H&M.

{Happy Fall}

  41. Gorgeous! I just did the same basic thing with my husband and myself. Your shoot is great--love your colors and contrasts. If you don't mind my asking, what lipstick/gloss are you wearing? I've been looking for that color forever, but have had poor luck.
