Shirt-H&M, Coated Pants-F21, Fur Snood-Target, Booties-Piperlime
 
 
It gets so dark so early now!
And I feel like I can never get ready fast enough in the morning to take outfit pics when theres morning light.
So.
This is what we get.
Yucky inside pictures.
Oh well.
You win some, you lose some right?!
I'm gonna try to start posting more....we'll see how this goes!!
Have a wonderful weekend all!!

Oh hey there!

Well hello there my long lost blog friends!
I am breaking the blog silence with a photo shoot!
 
My aaaaaamazingly talented friend Adalie Langford{used to be Plain} did this photo shoot with Travis and I a couple months ago and I could not be any more happy with the way the these babies turned out.
Take a little looksie.



 
 
 
 
 




 
 
Those are just a few of my favorite ones.
Adalie is seriously so talented and Travis and I agreed that it was so obvious the whole time that she loves photography.
And she has camera and will travel so if you have a wedding or just a Saturday coming up and you want the best pictures possible, she's your gal!!

Scared Stupid.

Top and Jeans-Gap, Belt-Jacob, Shoes-Aldo


 
Halloween is almost upon us.
And can I just tell you that it is my least favorite holiday {if you can even call it that}.
I am the biggest chicken you will ever lay eyes on.
I freak out about everything.
I got scared of Ernest Scared Stupid.
Go ahead. Judge. I'm ok with it.
The problem with this all is that I am married to a man who likes scary movies and shows.
His brothers are watching that show The Walking Dead and they convinced him that we should watch it.
So, last night, we cozied up in bed with our laptop and watched the first episode.
I was in Travis's armpit wimpering the whole time.
It. Was. Terrifying!!
Afterwards, I was conviced I would never be able to sleep again, and so I made Travis stay up till midight with me, watching funny cat videos on youtube to try and get it all out of my head.
Needless to say, I don't think we'll be watching any scary movies or tv shows together anytime soon.

Nomad

Sweater-Macys, Skirt-Gap{thrifted}, Tights-unknown, Boots-Piperlime, Necklace-F21


 
 
 
 
 
 I got to meet this lovely couple {the plains} on Sunday and what a treat it was.
I've been following along on their blog and lets just say I am a tad jealous.
The idea of picking up what you need and just going.
Being totally free.
No schedule.
No plan.
Just throwing caution to the wind.
It's so romantic to me.
My brother in law just picked up and moved to Hawaii.
My best friend from back home just moved to a town outside of London.
And my friends little brother is just hanging out in Europe.
Doesn't know when he's coming home.
Oh the freedom!
But, alas, I'm to much of a planner and I need a schedule.
And I love me some security.
So, I'll just stalk this darling little couple on their adventure.

Foggy


Shirt-F21, Vest-Old Navy, Jeans-Gap, Belt-Jacob, Shoes-Old Navy

 
Yesterday was the coldest day yet this Fall
{and I froze my butt off in this sheer shirt. I clearly know how to dress for Fall!!}.
It was so cold and foggy all day and I just loved it.
There is something about fog that just makes things cozy.
{are you guys sick of that word yet? I feel like I say it every post!!!}
Another thing fog does....makes me feel like I can speed.
Isn't that dangerous?! I can't explain it though....I guess I just feel invisible!
Anyways, its Thursday and I could not be more excited for the weekend.
Saturday the Mr will be back and we are headed to Monroe for Ruffles & Rust.
The Fall one is my favorite!
Are any of your guys gonna be there? If you live around Seattle you should check it out!










I am also linked up here!!

All of the pictures with the trees and the greenery, those are around our house.
So when I asked husband to take my outfit pics {cause he's back. yay!}
we wandered around a bit trying to find somewhere that I would not blend into the backround.
That camo.
Its really doing its job here.
 
It's suppose to be another beautiful Fall weekend here.
And we have some fun things lined up so I am excited and ready!

Who knew?


Shirt-Old Navy, Pants-F21, Boots-Piperlime, Necklace-J Crew Outlet
 
I like crazy just as much as the next girl.
Sometimes, people around these parts, stare at me.
Wondering what I am wearing.
But I feel like if I was in a city or a more, lets say, fashion forward town, I would fit right in {but where would the in that be?}.
But I live here and my cozy little town is what it is.
And I am weird here.
I wear "crazy" things.
Like these pants.
And to tell you the truth, I never would have thought I would wear "leather" pants.
But I do. And I love them.
Y'all are witnessing the evolution of Kirsten Postma.

Obsessed

 
 Shirt-H&M, Pants-Gap, Belt-Jacob, Shoes-Old Navy
 
 
 
I do this thing, where I like a trend or style of something and I become obsessed.
I need it in every color and type.
This has happened with peplum.
I wasn't a huge fan of it at first, but then I found a cheap version at Target and now I'm in love.
I think the selling point, is that it comes away from the body right at my stomach.
So. I can stuff my face with food, and no one is the wiser to my expanding stomach.
I was staring at my closet trying to decide what to wear to a fundraiser dinner {buffet. perfect for face stuffing} and saw this peplum, and thought to myself ...umm duh.
And so, this is what I wore.

Trusty Tripod

 Shirt-Gap, Pants-Target, Belt-Jacob, Shoes-Old Navy, Tie-Random
 
The Mr is out of town again and so out of the closet my good friend the tripod came.
And his sidekick the remote.
Nothing like standing in your yard awkwardly posing while the builders across the street stare at you...probably wondering what the heck is happening.
 
I felt so fallish in this outfit.
I just love the necktie look that seems to be everywhere this Fall!
I'm too cheap to get this gorgeous leather necktie so I just used an old sash thing I found in my belt drawer.
 
 
I would love to hear what Fall trends all y'all are into or dying to try!

Content.


Wanna know a little secret?
I have the hardest time being content.
I am always onto somthing else.
Always "needing" something else.
Sometimes, I think that blogging and pinterest and even other peoples blogs add to that.
On a blog, everything can look perfect.
We pick the pretty and happy things to put out into the world.
And so looking at other peoples blogs, you can think, man they look happy and perfect.
If only I had {blank} like they have...then my life might be perfect too.
 
Lately, I have been saying yes to everything and no to nothing and have found myself completely swamped.
I felt like I had no time to just relax, clean, read a book.
So I took a day off.
Of everything.
Work.
Friends.
Errands.
And stayed home.
I made a list of all the things around the house I needed to catch up on.
I was through my list by noon.
Now what?
 Me and Duke took a little walk.
It was a gorgeous Fall day.
I took the camera and just snapped as we walked.
And something happened.
Time seemed to stand still for me.
I live amongst beauty and nature.
I know this.
I see it everyday.
But in seeing it everyday, I missed it too.
I was so overwhelmed with Gods amazing grace and love for us that he would surround us with His beauty.
He makes His presence so known to us everyday in the way the light comes through the trees and the way the air smells in Fall.
And I was so content.
Content with where He has put me.
Content with Him.
Just Him.
All I need is Him.
 
So all of this to say, I need to make more time to just walk around.
Take a breath.
And meditate on Gods amaing love for me, an unworthy sinner.
The more busy I get, the more wrapped up in this world I get.
And then I need more, want more, of what this world has to offer.
But that isn't going to fill me up.
That isn't going to make me perfect or happy.
Only He will.
Him and His peace that He fills me up with, when I just stop and let Him.

Man Style

Shirt-Hurley{Marshalls}, Cord-Old Navy, Shoes-DC?
 
 
Not gonna lie, I tricked Travis into taking these pics.
I was all, posing is hard...you try.
And so he did.
And then I put them on the internet.
But how could I not?
He is just to cute.
And, he dressed himself.
Lets not tell him about this mmkay?
It'll be out little secret.

Leather and Hearts

 
Sweater-J Crew, Pants-F21, Shoes-Target, Watch-Nordstrom

 

 
 I am totally not a heart person.
In fact, when I put on this sweater, Travis was shocked and asked me if it was a heart to make sure.
Not sure what else it looks like....
And these pants are called coated pants.
They look like leather.
I was nervous about these pants.
So this whole outfit was a little out of my comfort zone.
But, I loved it!
This sweater is the best ever. So comfy and I already have a bunch of ideas of outfits for it.
And these pants.
Also love.
I made Travis call me Sandy all day.
{that was a Grease reference if you didn't catch it. And if you didn't....shame on you.}

Country Girl

Shirt-Old Navy, Skirt-F21, Boots-Piperlime
 
 
 
I felt like a bit of a cowgirl in this outfit.
I really wanted to run around our yard yelling yee haw and smacking the back of my imaginary horse, but the Mr put a stop to it. And reminded me that I don't look good in cowboy hats.
So. Plaid shirts and booties are as honky tonk as this girl is gonna get.

Last Days of Summer

Shirt-F21, Jeans-Gap, Shoes-Target, Necklace-J Crew{via eBay}




This weekend, we went out for dinner on the beach with some friends to celebrate what will probably be our last weekend of Summer.
As much as I am ready for Fall and sick of this blasted heat, I am kinda sad Summer is coming to a close, if for no other reason than I love patios.
We don't make it to the beach here very often. We don't really have a good excuse. We just like to stick to what we know, and we don't really know the restaurants or places there.
But with sunsets like the one below, I think we will be heading west more often!
