Style File 10.28.10

On my wish list for fall was a pair of wool paper bag shorts. I have searched a long time for a pair that I liked but never really found a pair. Then I was in Boston on Tuesday visiting with Melissa + Julie and I found a pair that I just loved at Urban Outfitters. I have been saving some birthday money from last month for when I found something awesome and I was super excited to finally find these shorts. They are going to be great to wear all thru the winter with thick chunky tights!

Rowan and I are off to go do some errands and after having a little chat this morning (mostly I just chatted) we decided to plan a surprise for Kev tonight! Hopefully we will have some pictures tomorrow to share. This has been a long awaited week for us. I will share details tomorrow but there is a big change happening in our household and it deserves a little celebration tonight with Kev, Rowan and I.

Blouse: Thrifted
Sparkle & Fade Tweed Paperbag Trouser Short: Urban Outfitters
We Umber-stand Socks: c/o Modcloth
Vintage Boots: Swap

  1. Those shorts look great on your. I think you’re a better model of them than the UO website. I hope your surprise goes off without a hitch.

    I love this outfit, you look great! The socks showing at the top of the boots is so cute. Rowan is adorable 🙂

  25. yes, the only thing certain about that first year is change! Once you get settled into a routine, baby changes it up again. Whew, it can be exhausting but stick in there! I also hated pumping so I just gave it up after a month with my first and never did it with my second. If baby was with me they nursed (believe me, in months 4, 5, 6 it easier than bottles) but if they were with someone else they got formula. No pumping. Good luck and I love this outfit and the pics of you looking at the camera!

  26. Those shorts look fabulous on you! 🙂

  27. I love love love this look! Every piece is so awesome and it works so well on you!

  28. those shorts are so cute. I love the bow at the front.

  29. i love this look! especially the shorts and top, amazing combination!

  30. I love this outfit. I really like the idea of the socks and boots. Its one of my favourite looks for fall-time. Also, didn’t you just have a baby? You look great!

  31. I love this outfit…and it makes your legs look a million miles long!
