Styled By....Me?

Last Wednesday, I received this panicked text from my friend AshLeigh:

Angela! We have our Christmas photos scheduled for Sunday. The theme is vintage...Uhhh I can't find anything for me, Kennedy, & Karsyn??? Help

Ashleigh is a SAHM of 3 of the cutest little nuggets! She mentioned that she tried to do some shopping with her youngest (8-month old, Karsyn) but it was proving to be impossible. So I happily took on the challenge!

She sent me a few pics that inspired this idea! 


And the next evening, I headed over to H&M, Forever 21, Marshall's, and finally Old Navy. About an hour in to the search, I started getting nervous because time was closing in on me and I knew that was the ONLY night I would have time to pull this off before the photo session (now rescheduled from Sunday afternoon to Saturday afternoon). But just 2 hours later, I found ALL 3 outfits AND accessories! Whew!

Here are the looks I created:
And here's the final result...AshLeigh's vision and my speed shopping efforts brought to life!

Aren't they the cutest family you've ever seen?! So flippin adorable. ;) 
And they pulled the vintage-y look off perfectly!

Although I'm no stylist, I am honored to have gotten the opportunity to serve my friend and her family. I work best under the gun and this little style challenge was kind of fun. Plus, the entire ambiance and even the SMELL of a mall excite me! Ha! I know...weird, huh? Surely I'm not the only one that loves the smell of a mall...don't leave me hanging, ladies!

Here's my OOTD...from Sunday ;)

 :: Details ::
sweater: JCPenney (here)
chambray top: Target
pants: Marshall's (last worn here)
wedge booties: Nine West Outlet
jewels: Target (necklace) & Charming Charlie (ring)

On a completely separate note, can you believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving?! Seriously, where did this year go?? Cra-zi-ness. BUT I'm excited to stuff myself like nobody's business. And not feel bad about it. ;)
