Parks and Recreation | A Photo Shoot with my Girl

Klair's outfit: 
Tutu | Tank | Shoes | Headband

Skirt (Similar here & here--both under $15! And this midi skirt that's to die for) | Lace Blouse | NecklaceBoots (similar, love these!) | Bracelet 

Sam often creates a post for me to upload the photos he takes. Afterwards I go in and actually write the post. When he opens one up, he always picks a title. They're usually cheesy funny, the type that elicits a pity laugh before I change it to something else. He named this one "Parks and Recreation" ...I'm thinking it's because these photos were taken at a park? That seems like the logical train of thought. I can't come up with a better title though, so I guess I'll keep this little shout out to one of our favorite TV series of all time. That was one I actually mourned a little when it ended...

Anyway, back to the photos and the whole point of this post in the first place. It's been unseasonably cool around here with lots of rainy days and lower temperatures than one wouldn't expect for August... and I'm not complaining. In fact, I'm celebrating! And, my celebration takes the form of some of my fall favorites--in this case boots-- making an early debut. I love these Steve Madden boots. In fact, I enjoy Steve Madden shoes in general. I feel like they're higher quality without the exorbitant prices. These particular boots have a good heel (a fact I appreciate being on the shorter side and all), but they're ridiculously comfy. The tan color goes with just about everything, and I feel like I can easily dress them up or down depending on the occasion. I have had them for awhile now, and they're by far my favorite and most versatile boots. So, once the weather dipped below 80, it only seemed natural to throw them on with a summer skirt for an in between seasons look.

When we were getting ready to head out to the park to take these photos, I spotted Klair's little green tutu and I could resist dressing her up for some photos as well. Apparently I was really loving bright colors that day. And, my girly little bow-loving baby didn't mind at all. She loves to dress up with mommy, and she insisted that I apply some lipstick and perfume to complete the experience. I love  the way those close up shots of her turned out. She was really hamming it up for the camera at that point (thanks to my peek-a-boo skills). I saved these two photos for last though because they crack me up. Here is little Klair running toward her dad. I was running along side her to help capture these moments, and she was giving me a run for my money. It's crazy how fast she is these days. Ahh I sure do love my happy, funny, energetic little munchkin!

Sincerely Yours,

In the event that you require cash to pay your service charges, lease, auto installment, or doctor's visit expenses, you are urged to talk with the individual or organization that you owe cash to. You may find that your bill gatherer will give you a little augmentation before making a last endeavor to gather the cash. Payday Loans Chicago
