. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Five

September 12, 2013

Five

pants: loft   shoes: kohls  necklace: c/o curated by kelly

1. I've wanted a pair of boyfriend jeans forever and recently got these and another pair.  My problem is that I think they make my legs look even shorter.  I may need some style help with them.  Hopefully the answer isn't that they just don't work with short legs. 


2. On Sunday we went to the forest preserve after church and brought lunch.  It was so fun to do things as a family and I think it may become a new weekend routine as long as the weather is nice. 


3. I've slowly started working out again.  Although it's only happened a few times, it feels good to break a sweat (not from hormones or when I'm nursing and get overly hot).  I still hate Jillian Micheal's voice and mute the tv.  



4.  I forgot to share this sweet bracelet that Chris got me after we had Addilyn.  It came in the mail the day we had to come home while she was in the nursery, which was such perfect timing.  I LOVE it. 

Autumn Front Porch Fall Decor Ideas..

5. I am ready to start decorating for Fall, even though the weather isn't quite there.  I bought a chalkboard pen yesterday and want to do something like this on the chalkboard by our front door.   When do you start decorating for fall? 

I hope you have a great weekend!

Great pictures. Love the bracelet. Finished up our front foyer table yesterday. Need to add a few splashes of fall to our front porch this weekend. I don't go overboard. I will add a few pumpkins and gourds later on (haven't seen many yet). Don't care to much for the plastic variety.

Such a cute bracelet! How sweet!

I totally feel you on the boyfriend pants. I always see the prettiest bloggers style them and when I try it I look absolutely ridiculous and feel like I shrunk a few inches. If you find out the make them look hot trick please let me know!!

Kate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I have those exact pants. Love them! Yet, I too feel as though I look 5 inches shorter when I wear them.

But they're just so comfortable, I don't care. :P

Beautiful bracelet, how sweet and something that can be passed on one day :) You are rocking those pants, they look great!

My legs are short, too. Usually I just make the cuffs bigger when I roll the pants. Not sure if that's the right thing to do or not :) Cute outfit!!

What an adorable bracelet. How sweet of Chris to get it for you! And I decorate for fall on October first. That was there's almost two months of fall decor before I decorate for Christmas right after Thanksgiving.

I love jewelry with my daughter's name on it! Pretty bracelet! I think you look great in the boyfriend jeans! I have the same issue - I am 5'4". I have seen many bloggers wear heels with their jeans. I would love to try this, but I live in a very small farm town and I would be laughed at. So maybe as the weather cools, I will try some booties with my jeans! Let me know what works for you! Blessings ! Susan

Aww the bracelet is so sweet!

I usually wear my boyfriend jeans with heels so my legs don't look too stubby.

Have a great weekend!

That bracelet is so sweet and cute!! How nice of him!! Today was the very first day it has felt like fall here! It made me want to go to a football game tonight, but I just ended up wearing sweatpants and snuggling up on the couch! Haha! I need a pair of boyfriend jeans!! I'm only 5'3 so I probably would feel sooo short in them haha!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love the boyfriend jeans! Have you tried tucking in your shirt or wearing them with higher wedges? They have so much potential, but agree, a little more of a challenge with us shorter frames :)

Really like the bracelet.

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Chris is so sweet for getting you the bracelet! I love it! As far as the pants go, I personally love them on you! But if you're not 100%, you could try rolling them up just a bit more to show a little more ankle, and/or pair them with a bit higher heel to give more length. Either way may help elongate your look (but I don't think you need it)!

Such a pretty bracelet, and I can't wait to see what you do with the chalkboard!
Yay for working out and family picnics!

Lunch at a park after church sounds like a great family routine! I think we may need to try that :)

And I'm sorry I have no boyfriend jeans styling tips...haven't tried them!

The Lady Okie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ha! That's funny you mute the TV. She really does have a creepy man voice.

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

i love that bracelet! And i'm officially and finally ready for fall too! bring on the cool weather! I'm ready for it!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love your outfit. Boyfriend jeans do not look good on me- make me look too big and my legs too short. Which is surprising since I am not short.

Beautiful bracelet!

I also mute Jillian- one time when I was working out and didn't mute it, my hubby counted the number of times she said 'hit it!' I never noticed it before but I certainly do now!

I'm ready-ish for fall- I need to find a chalkboard.
