barnyard play hard

 happy independence day pretty people!!!
i am literally giddy with excitement to finally bring my 2 favorite accessories to the blog, my boys!!!
so starting today i will be showcasing family fashion and kiddie style for a new series
 "FamBam Friday"
special thanks to Hyde Park Polo Club for allowing us the most breathtaking background for our shoot!!  ps. im moving in!!
so let's discuss the boys!!  these 2 could not be more different.  Lincoln would prefer to be naked at all times and is typically ripping off most anything i put him in, but i do still get to choose his outfits so there's a plus!!  Phoenix on the other hand, is my metro man!!  he has to have his say in everything he wears, and usually what i wear as well!!  he loves to accessorize, never leaves the house without a hat, and has specific outfits for specific outings . . . . my ocd is strong in this one!
typically when styling the boys, i like them to coordinate, not actually match, and go along with my look as well.  u just never know when an impromptu photo sesh might take place, so im always prepared!!  i still let them be boys and dress like boys.  the hubs would have a fit if i put them in leggings and rocker tees every day, so we've found a healthy middle ground.  preppy/trendy.  basically they dress like he does. 
 now for my look!  when thinking of our country and our freedom, i always envision camouflage.  we owe everything to the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for the good ole USA, so to me, camo is just about the most patriotic color you can wear!  i have been on the hunt (no pun intended) to find the perfect camo pant for over a year, (i have a coated skinny pair from ae, but they're a bit thick for year round wear) i finally scored big time at the gap sale and found these bf fit trouser.  (u know i'm obsessing over baggy bottoms these days)  so i paired them with sparkles and silk and topped it off with this red chanel-esque jacket (also scored at the GAP sale!!)  i wish you could see how fab this jacket is, with its distressing and perfect red hue, but i was sweating bullets, so i only managed to keep it on for one shot.  no worries, it has become a staple and find myself grabbing it over and over to add a pop of color to my everyday threads.
i hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the festivities!!!
God Bless America!!!
