    I love the payless flats with the bow on the back of the heel. Also love your collage of bloopers…my husband takes one and calls it good, my kids take a bunch which i prefer because i like to get a candid shot and that helps!

  18. 18

    I am so going to recreate the black dress, denim top and brown boots outfit. Love it!

  19. 19

    GREAT outfits Lindsey!! Love the petal pushers and allora’s fluff! Oh, and the cute bow back payless shoes!!

  20. 20

    Wow, this post has so much inspiration! I love the polka-dot sweater, and I could probably recreate the black dress/denim jacket outfit. My husband has been fired as my picture taker…he doesn’t take ENOUGH pictures! And he tilts them at weird angles and cuts off my head ;-) My 5 year old does a great job.

  21. 21

    It’s been a while since I linked up, but I finally did today. Yay!

    I have to say that that boot and dress combo might just be my favorite look from this week! I am so ready for boot weather! And that light chambray shirt is a great piece too. Thanks for hosting another wonderful link-up!

    LOVE your outfits this week! i so wish i was tall and skinny–everything looks so good on you!
    i have GOT to know…did you get the polka dot cardi recently at f21 or has it been some time ago? it’s not on the website and i simply HAVE to have it!!!

  32. 32

    Lindsey! LOVE the looks this week! The cardigan with the flowers is my fave! I like the pink flower necklace too.

    My link may appear twice. My thumbnail picture didn’t show up. Sorry!

  33. 33

    You have so many CUTE CUTE CUTE outfits!!

  34. 34

    Smiled at all of the pictures from when your hubby took them. I don’t ask my hubs to take mine very often either because the the same exact thing happens. If you’ve checked out my blog you’ve seen the silly pictures posted before. I love that you have your 6 year old take you picts. My oldest daughters take mine most of the time too, but I always feel weird telling people that for some reason LOL. Great picts, all of them. LOVE the Christine Marie bracelet!

  35. 35

    i LOVE your first look. GREAT cardigan…i love polka-dots.


  36. 36

    My hubby does the same when he takes my pics! haha

    I love these outfits! Thanks for including where you got things. Wonder if my Forever 21 still has some of them..and how did I miss those Target finds!

  38. 38

    I LOVE the black dress with the denim jacket, you look so great!!
