This sweet little pumpkin wishes you a Happy Halloween!
(I had a friend in college whose only reason for wanting a baby was to dress him or her up in a pumpkin outfit. She planned to dress this baby like a pumpkin year round as babies dresses as pumpkins are the best. They really, really are the best, but I think we're going to keep this look Halloween-specific for Thomas!)

That's me with wet hair in a thrifted maxi-dress. This is my go-to stay-at-home mom wear (Only three weeks left! I feel feelings about this!). Maxi-dresses are just so darn easy, but you still feel really fabulous when wearing them.

I am typing with one hand because my other arm has a baby in it. Typing is so much slower this way... but the end result is the same -- a blog entry about my new boots! They are still very tall and very comfortable.
The laces on the back are my favorite part. They are the main reason I bought the boots.
Also a favorite: that giant stone ring from a recent arts festival. So big, So stony! And my dress! So stripey! And now my baby's so awake-y! Entry concluded.

New boots have been bought. They are different from my old boots, but are awesome in their own way. They go up to my knee. They go with the season of fall. They make me think "You go, girl" when I look at myself wearing them in the mirror. And go I do.

Saying James Dean is a style icon is kind of like saying Marilyn Monroe is a style icon. As in "No duh."
I mean, the dude is more iconic than any other icon. He's James Dean. Just like Marilyn, you don't have to see his movies to know who he is and admire his cool-guy look. (But see his movies. Especially "Rebel Without a Cause." It's a classic for a reason and James Dean is never James Dean-ier than he is in that movie.)
So James Dean is totally the insanely gorgeous boy smoking a cigarette in a leather jacket, but he also has a more laid-back kind of bookish style too. James Dean was a thinker! He was sensitive! He hung out with Elizabeth Taylor and she took naps and he read celebrity magazines.
He looked amazing in sneakers and glasses. He probably would look amazing in anything being that he was James Dean and all.
But, yes, the cigarette/jacket look is probably his best. You're a dreamy one, James Dean. You're definitely a dreamy one.
