Showers, Cousins, and Day-Long Outfits

^^Found a red door and thought it might look kinda fun..instead I just ended up blending in. :/ :)
Pants: JCrew (similar), Boots: Gap (similar), Top: Old Navy (similar), Necklace: ElizaJay Charm

After our beach trip this past weekend, we drove back to my parents' house where my mom was throwing my cousin, Joel's fiancĂ©, a bridal shower. It was beautiful, of course, and shower food happens to be my favorite.  (I love eating a little bit of lots of things!)

I'm really close to Joel and his siblings, so it was really fun to spend the afternoon with them and my sister.  It's nice having people who are your cousins and your friends….you automatically love each other because of the whole family thing, but it's even better when you can have fun together and tell each other things that you can't tell anyone else. :) Somehow, cousins always seem to have your back and are always on your side…I love that about mine.

The shower started a few minutes before we arrived, and my mom told me that Charlie had volunteered to say the blessing on the food.  I was so proud of my sweet, big boy and that heart of gold he has.

I needed an outfit that would take me from the beach, to a car drive (I hate being uncomfortable in the car), to a bridal shower, and then on to an evening of playing with babies and family.  This outfit seemed to do the trick.

That is a very multi-purpose, practical outfit! And I love the bright colors! Comfort is always my primary goal when picking out clothes for a car trip, too!

I love these pants! And you're so right...My cousins and I (and my sisters) are closer than most and they really are the best! =)

These red pants are so cheerful! Love how you posed next to the red wall to match, hehe. Comfort is a must for me too for long car rides.

I love that you said "I like eating a little bit of a lot of things" -- that is SO me. Those red pants are killer! So sweet of Mr. Charlie to volunteer to bless the food, love his little heart!!

I love the pink shirt with the red pants! I've been searching for a pair of red skinny jeans for a while now-I love how they add such a nice bright pop of color especially in winter.

Charlie is the absolute sweetest - good job to you on raising him right! :) Also I think it's so funny that it looks like you're floating in the last photo - you look so cute!

Nikki said...

Adorable! Love the pink and red together. And if it was comfortable enough to for a car ride but also works for a shower, it is definitely a winner!
