Since having Elliot, I have been re-exposed to the nursery rhymes that I so often ran around jingling as a child. When you’re a kid, you get the beat of the poem in your head and just say the words without really listening to them. Well, children’s fairy tails tend to be scary and a little depressing.
While I am not an old woman, nor do I live in a shoe and I certainly do not have so many children I don’t know what to do, I am often baffled at the amount of laundry and dishes that one tiny child and a husband can accrue. I imagine that if said old woman lived in a shoe and were truly chasing around so many children she did not know what to do, that her stacks would look something like what I drummed up. I also think she might not be wearing a skirt as they portray her in the illustrations, but a practical pant.
I wanted to use my husbands suspenders for this shoot (because the last thing a woman running after kids needs to be doing is yanking up her pants), but as they were the button on (real live) ones, I purchased these guys for $3.00 in the dollar section of Target. I actually love them and have worn them since. The pants are an item that I’ve had since high school (thank you Gap for making timeless, quality pieces) and a staple white t-shirt finishes out the look!
I hope you’ve liked seeing a glimpse into my quirky little brain. It’s been nice to expose that nerdy side of myself. I hope you all have a fabulous Easter weekend with beautiful sunshine, family, a reminder of renewal and a healthy dose of chocolate shaped bunnies!
