[my first] steppin' out saturday

I've noticed a few of my idolized mommy bloggers (love her, her and her) posting this theme. On Saturdays, they take a couple snapshots of what mom and bumble are wearing before they hit the town.

It's a cute idea for a blog post, especially if you're one of those people (like ahem me) who makes an obtrusive habit out of staring at what everyone else is wearing when you're in public (to get ideas for your own personal swag, of course).

So this afternoon after everyone was napped, we wrestled Carter into some clothes and snapped some pictures before we loaded the car. We dedicated another day to combing the streets in search of our future dream house. Here's what we wore. (You're welcome, inside of our car.)



belted dress: macy's
tights: macy's
riding boots: nordstrom

polo with mock undershirt: carter's
cargo pants: children's place
shoes: babies r us

    the DRESS is by BCX, it's called the "bubble shirt dress." I tried googling it, but since I bought it a couple months ago, nobody's carrying it anymore. It's also made in black.
    the RIDING BOOTS are by Via Spriga. I'm in love with the way they fit my foot.
