Frye Boots and a "Horsey"

"I'm going to name my bike Horsey because it rides me like a horse,"
Princess Sparkles said as she rode down the cul-de-sac
on one of her fave new Christmas gifts, the princess bike. 
Meanwhile, Pigtails "rode" a tricycle. 
She pointed to her handle bars and demanded, "Momma, push!"

MATERNITY DRESS - Motherhood Maternity (hand-me-down)
FEATHER HEADBAND - Downtown LA
MOTORCYCLE BOOTS - Frye (Thanks, Agyle!)

Almost 35 weeks!!!  Sooooo close!

I wore this today to run errands.  The girls had Mom's Day Out and I had an eye doctor appointement (got some cool new retro Ray Ban eyeglasses!).  This dress is a hand-me-down from my best friend, Plaid.  And these awesome boots were a Christmas gift from my darling sister-in-law, Argyle.  She bought two pairs at an outlet, and although they were originally meant for her sister (oops), she gave them to me.  I love them!  They're probably the nicest pair I own (and I own a lot).

I'm having a really good day, not only do I feel good (must be the decent sleep I got!) but I'm getting a lot done.  Trying to get things finished while I still can.  Because pretty soon I am gonna need a "Horsey" or someone to push me around by the handle bars!

Kezzie said...

Keep going Claire! I can't imagine how tiring it must be hoiking 35 weeks worth of baby around with you!

I like the name horsey for a bike- it's logical!

Patti said...

You look gorgeous! I love your wish for a horsey - it makes a lot of sense; I think all moms should have one : >

You are still one inspiring styly mama. Wow, that baby has really grown. You might have to lasso those handlebars with some rope pretty soon so you don't have to bend so far...or maybe put some blocks on Pigtail's pedals.

Looks like i need a "horsey" to run errands too. i find tt i am always rushing around, and i am always calling my boys "hurry". Nice dress btw, i like the cute print. hurray for hand me downs, looks great with your new boots and shades. You look so good Claire, feeling excited for your delivery.

You are sooo close - how exciting!

I think we got our daughters the same bike for Christmas. :) Unfortunately for Arlie, it's rained almost every day since so there's just been a few quick rides!

Can I borrow your friends? Because I have always wanted a pair of Frye boots. :)

You look wonderful and I can't believe your so close to the end of your pregnancy. I know your excited!

Frannie Pantz said...

How funny, I went to the eye doctor yesterday as well! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your dress! And the boots under the knee socks is adorable. I am so glad that my kids are at the independent stage where I don't need to push them, but that also means I don't need to help them with anything so it's kinda sad. :-(

Cute outfit. I love the shoes.

Your daughter is so cute. Before you know it she will be riding without the training wheels. They grow up so fast.

Megan Mae said...

Love the print on your dress, but I am drooling over those frye boots. Frye has quickly become my fav brand for durability, but they also have some great design as well.

Carly said...

You are just too adorable for words! Love everything about this look! 35 weeks..almost there! Yay!!!

Those boots are TO DIE for. Frye knows how to do it, right?
