Black Leather Pants

black leather pants

I got some black leather pants, and I pretty much love them. Maybe because I feel like I am walking on the wild side, but they are pretty comfortable as well–felt like pajama’s. They seem to fancify the outfit, too, would you say? I wore them with

Christmas Holiday Fashion: Red Lipstick and Ankle Boots

Christmas Holiday Fashion

I am a big believer in wearing red and green to Christmas gatherings. It’s just against my own personal moral code  not to. I’ve thrown in black, gold, or silver with just a touch of red or green sometimes, but you will never see me wear teal, orange, pink, or even turquoise to a Christmas event–even though I love those colors. I am LOVING the trend of hot pink and turquoise at Christmas, I even… Continue Reading

Little Z Boutique~Children’s boutique clothing

Little Z Boutique

The cutest little dress for my youngest showed up on my doorstep last week. I fell in love with this blue and white striped tutu dress with a sequin peter pan collar the second I saw it!  It is from Little Z Boutique, which is Children’s boutique clothing shop, at an affordable price.   First of all, I’m a sucker for a peter pan collar–and sequined?!?

What I Wore with Stitch Fix

mixing patterns clothes

This is my 3rd stitch fix box, and probably my most favorite! Maybe it’s the excitement of winter clothes, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the feather necklace draped around me–I love it! But first, I tried mixing patterns, and I’m just not sure how it worked out. I like to see a well mixed outfit, but I’ve never attempted it myself. I grabbed my black polka dot cardigan to go… Continue Reading

Camouflage Pants

Camouflage pants

Don’t tell anyone, but I’m practically wearing pajama pants around town when I wear these. They are a drawstring waist, and so comfy, I got another solid color pair. I’ve always been a fan of Camouflage. If you haven’t seen my What I Wore posts before, I will occasionally share my clothing selection. I like to play dress up, and I like to get ideas from around the web, so like to share my style… Continue Reading

Kids Clothing

I’m so excited to share a fun photo shoot with my girls using designs from Penelope’s Eclectic Closet!   I was sent a few items to review, that I’m happy to share about. My girls love dressing up all fancy, and I love unique handmade pieces. First up is my younger daughter wearing the adorable Somersault Dress with the white ruffle sleeve 3/4 top. She loved prancing around in the field and twirling in it.  Then… Continue Reading

I haven’t shared my WHAT I WORE posts for a while. During the summer it’s swimsuits and PJ’s at home…I hardly even put make up on except for church on Sundays. But I’ve got a little survey this week, I need some help deciding on a few things… Have you heard of Stitch Fix yet? I’d heard about it from a few friends, and decided to try it out for myself. It’s an online personal… Continue Reading

It was so fun to be a part of the Target #kidsgotstyle campaign for back to school, and do a little shopping!

What I Wore with Very Jane

I haven’t done a “what I wore” fashion post in a while. For those of you that haven’t seen, I like to share what I wear sometimes, and link up to The Pleated Poppy where others share what they wear, and draw inspiration to mix and max things in my closet. I have a slight obsession with cute clothes, and I really need to “shop my closet” more. By looking at how others pair things,… Continue Reading

Embracing NEON~What I Wore

Embracing neon fashion

For those new to my site, every once in a while, I like to share my outfits, as I like to look at the pleated poppy’s site on Wednesdays to see what outfits others are sharing.

Extended Family Pictures~My fam!

extended family pictures at Capturing-Joy.com

Over Thanksgiving holiday, my parents, 3 brothers, and our families all met up at a beach house near Port Aransas, Texas. It’s so fun to all be together, and the weather was so lovely! Probably 70-80 degrees, so our kids got to play in the water and enjoy it, too. I’m the designated family picture taker, so I suggested the color scheme of red, yellow, and blue, and it turned out great! I brought my… Continue Reading

Style Files~What I Wore

fashion style @Capturing-Joy.com

If you are new around here, sometimes on Wednesdays, I share what I wore in an attempt to challenge myself to get dressed and seek inspiration from others sharing…. I saw these striped leggings at H&M (that JUST opened in Austin–yay!) recently and had to get them. I mulled over what to wear them with, and when I asked a teen girl what she’d wear them with, she said “sweater shirt.” I have one of… Continue Reading
