Thursday- Fake Plastic Trees

Thursday will be a twofor. I hadn't planned on wearing this, but the husband suggested a morning hike and I figured it would be a good idea since a tired toddle=longer nap.

So here's my first outfit today (no real theme here)-



And a bit of detail-


"We are not scaremongering, this is really happening."

I'm a huge Radiohead fan and this shirt has seen better days. You can't tell with the cardigan on but the back, at the collar where the tag is, it is tearing, there are snags in various places but I refuse to get rid of it. It's seen the start of a relationship (and eventual marriage), it's covered me in my pregnancy and various stages of growth (I think I had to retire it around 7 months when I took on the figure of someone who had inexplicably swallowed a small deer). I love it.

Outfit Details-
Shirt and shorts- thrifted, Buffalo Exchange
Cardigan-Target
Shoes- high school throwbacks.
Necklace- thrifted (it's my favorite piece of jewelry I own, well, at least it places very high up there, I wear it all the time).
Sunglasses- Old Navy

Jack wears-
Batman t-shirt, jeans and shoes from Target.

I'll be posting later with the outfit I had planned on and it's theme.

*Author's note-
I was going to do a second outfit this evening but my back has been in a knotted ball of pain since Tuesday. I just want to take some ibuprofen, watch a good movie and eat this incredible brie filled pasta and look at your lovely outfits! I'll post the aforementioned outfit manana.

I love hiking with my family. It's so calming and reinvigorating at the same time.

Love the Radiohead t-shirt. Good find!

@Maggie- You're totally right! I'm actually not that big of an outdoorsy person (more of an introspective house cat) but today was really lovely and in the end I was glad to pull myself out of my safe little cocoon and explore the world. It's 10X more fun, I've discovered, with children. Jack is such a nature boy.

And thanks again ladies! This is so fun, I'm going to really miss it at the end of the week.

is the necklace a locket?

i LOVE the outdoor "action" shots. little boys are so much fun outside.

@Laura- The necklace is indeed a locket. I haven't been able to settle on a particular picture just yet. It's also hard to shrink one down that small without distorting the image. Everybody who's realized the locket is empty is usually thoroughly disappointed. BUT, I just gave Jack's baby locks a good trim and I'm considering putting a little piece of his baby hair in there, just to give the necklace something to hold on to for now.
