Motorcycle Vest and a Good Baby

Bucket and I flew to Seattle over the weekend for a family reunion.
It was his first plane flight and he did amazingly well.
We stayed with my cousin, Cupcake, and his partner, Gilmore.
Although we were away from his sisters, Bucket probably didn't notice
since Cupcake and Gilmore's scotties were all over him.
"I don't like kids," I overheard Gilmore say while carrying Bucket.
Then with a slight smirk he said, "But this baby is good." 

MOTORCYCLE VEST - Local Boutique, $15
LONG NECKLACE, BRACELET - Jewelry by Cynde Daniels
NECKLACE - c/o Anjolee
GREEN WEDGES - Seychelles, $10

Monday's Inspiration - Elizabeth Olsen

Today's "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds is Elizabeth Olsen in a sundress and moto vest.  I personally LOVE a vest, and I got this motorcycle one from a store that was closing down for only $15!!!  The dress was from Macys and I got it to nurse in since it's strapless.  And it was only $6!!!  The wedges I got at a Seychelles warehouse sale for $10.

A family reunion (in Port Orchard) makes Bucket happy

Bucket gets kisses from the scotties

I like pairing a motorcycle vest with a dress.  It gives the girly piece an edge.  There's something about a tough piece mixed with a soft one.  It adds just the right touch.  Like a baby in the arms of a guy who "doesn't like kids!"

Oh my goodness, he is getting so big! Glad that you two got to spend a little time together - that big grin of his is too cute!. And I am loving the take on Elizabeth's outfit! The mix of the florals and edgy vest is really fun. And I love those shoes!
