Gosh, I really do love this goofy little bunch of mine.
Normally Tennessee is unbearably hot this time of year, but the past two weeks have been outrageously out of ordinary. It's felt like early October, complete with breezy evenings and crisp mornings. We're always forgetting to grab our jackets before heading to the bus stop in the AM, but the afternoon sun definitely warms things up. We can't exactly put our shorts up for the season, you know? We're at that fun in between stage of seasons and I kind of love it. While I'm not crazy about pumpkin flavored things or the reality of winter following shortly after, I do love the promise of cooler temps and layers that Autumn brings. In the spirit of it being "Almost Autumn," we've partnered up with Kohl's to share how we dress up Levi's demin for the season.
My absolute favorite thing about the fellas' outfits: it was a total coincidence that they matched! We didn't set out to make the guys share a color palette, but Mike and Toby picked what they wanted to wear, and I pieced together Linden's outfit on the fly since his fun (mini!) denim jacket hadn't arrived. I just love that picture above. They fit together so well, both in style and cuteness haha! I honestly haven't seen Mike in jeans in months! While I have nothing against shorts or scrubs, I just really like me a man in a nice pair of jeans. (He's wearing the slim-fitting 511s) As for fancy footwear, he thrifted those boots several years ago and I always get tickled when they make their way out of the closet. I kind of love the whiskey tee he wore with his outfit, too.
My dress is one I grabbed from the Indiocation collection at Kohl's. You can't tell by how it photographs, but it's the softest material! (And it's currently 50% off online!) I've been telling Mike I need to swing back by our local store so I can grab it in navy, too. It looks like a totally different dress, despite being identical. Anyawy, you're totally seeing me in my "natural state" here ha! Hair in a top knot, hoodie on and Birkenstocks. This is likely exactly what I look like when you read this post.
Toby's outfit is probably my favorite. I'm not exactly sure why, but I think it probably has a lot to do with the fact he's growing up and becoming his own independent person. The past 2 years of school the kid didn't want to wear graphic tees, but now he's totally all about them. I love seeing how much he's changed over the years. That strawberry blonde hair and those freckles just get me every time! He's wearing the slim-fit 511 style of Levi's, too, but you can tell he's a pretty lanky little dude! I bought him a 5T in the jeans and they give him such a laid-back, relaxed look. He's basically sixteen. HELP!
Linden's little mini denim jacket didn't arrive in time for me to photograph it for this post, but I'll just have to save that cuteness for next time! While I know it totally would've melted your hearts, I'm betting tiny mustard pants will do the same thing ha. It makes me sad to cover up those chunky little rolls up, but at least I get to do it in style.
I just know these photos of Mike and the kids will be some of my most cherished for years to come. I love just seeing them all together. It makes me really want to prioritize getting out this season and doing things as a family like orchards or hay rides and corn mazes. I know I'm getting ahead of myself because I just looked up the forecast tomorrow and it's going to be 91 haha! I guess I'll stow away our denim for a few more weeks...
Here's to pumpkin spice lattes, falling leaves, and bobbing for apples, or whatever it is that makes you love Autumn! We're almost there!
