Thought I’d share a few of my latest favorite clothing items.
Striped pants
Shirt: Nasty Gal Pants: Forever21 Shoes: Steve Madden

We walked into Sports Authority soon after taking this photo and this conversation happened:
Cara: Dang, I hope no one mistakes me for a referee.
Nick: They won’t.
Cara: Good.
Nick: I was thinking it’s more like you work for the circus.
Yet…I still love these pants…and actually, so does Nick.
The shirt is so cute and fits really good. It’s a gem.

Glitter pocket!
Shirt: Nasty Gal Pants: Hollister {old} Shoes: Steve Madden

My finger isn’t broken, I just get really confused about things when I’m posing for photos.
Pretending to casually be walking down the street is hard enough as it is! Putting my hand in my pocket too? That’s crazy.

On the other hand my sweet son seems to have a been born with impeccable posing skills.
Here is a photo I took of him when he wasn’t looking:

As soon as he saw that I was snapping photos he (and I seriously have no idea where he got this pose idea from) pulled this:
I’m not trying to be a stage mom or anything but he is killing it.
Happy Monday!

    Hi Cara~ This is my first time replying. 😉 Thank you so much for ALL of the tips, tricks and videos. Your ideas are always so fresh, current and fun. Have you considered doing a makeover for a 40 or 50 something gal? I love your looks but was curious if they would change at all as we get older. I’m 51..I like to think I’m holding my own..age wise, but I would love to see what you would do. Congrats on your succes! 😉

      Would LOVE to see a tutorial or two for women over 50 as well. I’m not sure what to do with my eyes as age has made my eyelids disappear!

    I guess if someone is skinny enough and the pants are tight enough they can make even things like those look good! lol

    I can see why you love those pants! So cute! I checked them out on F21’s website and I LOVE the Matelot waist. One of my fave styles. I have a pair of white shorts this summer with the same design. Thanks for sharing! You look super cute! So does your little man! 😉

        I know my waist is 27 and I got a 2 (I usually wear 4 so I think they run large) I’m not sure what my hip measurement is!

    What size did you order the sequin tee in? Also just to guage my size vs. yours, what size denim do you wear? I am a 27/28 and it would help to know what size you ordered. If you share your typical size and from then on share the sizes you purchased it helps us figure out what we need. Thanks for your help

    He is so cute. Those striped pants would make me look 5 ft tall! I’m 4’9″, but, I’m afraid they’d keep trying to return me to the fair or circus. Sorry C.

    Do you get your pants hemmed? All of your pants in this post look like they fit you perfectly! I totally have #shortgirlproblems and can literally not buy pants without having to get them hemmed (with the exception of some brands having petit sizes that workout but not always)

    Oh God bless his little heart! I know this isn’t news to you but that little kid is gorgeous. & as for his posing skills, seems like you have yourself a natural 😀

    Also, wish I had the legs to pull off those pants. My little sister is itty bitty as well & has a similar pair that she wears often, & it just kills me how amazing they look!

    Hey cara! so I have a question, I’m a garment wearer and I love this glitter sequin tee, but I’m not sure if I’d have to line it with a shirt or not? on the website it looks like its just a see through mesh?
