Late in the summer our family took a trip to the library to escape the heat. It's hard to remember that hot, hot heat in the grip of beautiful fall weather but I remember not wanting to do much except find another place with cool air. The library it was!
Once they were ready to move on we found a quiet part near the back to take some fun photos. I knew the lighting would be a bit off and we had to work with two kids who were ready to go home but I'm so glad we made the effort. What a fun memory.
Plus, I wanted to show off my new clogs! Jonny and Lotta of Lotta from Stockholm generously sent Rubyellen and I each a pair of our choice to share in our VH,VT feature. They have a lovely selection of traditional clogs, trendy clogs, and clog boots! They carry clogs for kids and have a great sale selection. I've been wearing them regularly since they arrived and get asked all the time if they're Swedish Hasbeens. As Rubyellen mentioned, they're a bit more affordable and so comfortable. My tip for breaking in your clogs is to wear them with socks or hose around your house until the leather softens a bit and then you'll never want to take them off!
I'm wearing: Vintage shirt, thrifted. Jumper, Target. Vintage belt, thrifted. Clogs, Lotta from Stockholm.
Ruby's wearing: Vintage shirt, thrifted. Denim jumper, thrifted. Saltwaters, eBay.
The whole time Brett was taking pictures Sebastian was trying to get in the way. That little boogar kept running up and down the aisle and jumping in the shot on purpose! We had some fun with it but I'm not gonna lie, taking outfit photos with little ones sometimes takes more patience than I have. Here are a few examples of Sebastian getting in on the action.
You've GOT to go see how beautiful Rubyellen looks in her plaid dress and peep toe clogs! I just have to say, DANG GIRL! Didn't you JUST have a baby? Like yesterday? She looks killer in her pretty ensemble and I'm ready to put the red peep toes on my shoe wish list!
A big thank you to Lotta and Jonny of Lotta from Stockholm for such darling shoes. If clogs are on your wish list go see what they have to offer!
