How We Wore It // Keeping It Casual

Rhys and I are excited to join up with Brooke from Silver Lining again for the How We Wore It series.

This month’s inspiration comes from Robyn Vilate. She wears a camo shirt, jeans, converse shoes, and a baseball cap.

Casual to me means jeans and braids…definitely braids. But, since I got my hair cut, I haven’t been able to actually get it into braids. I can’t tell you how long it took today with as short as my hair is and how thick and curly. Yes, it was wet when I tried (which usually helps), but I guess they still aren’t truly long enough…so forgive the poor braids. Also, I used to wear hats all the time in college, but once I got hired as a teacher and hats are a big no-no, I got rid of them all. Thankfully, Justin had quite a few caps in the closet!

Can I tell you how hard it is to take your own pictures? Especially with focusing your DSLR on a blank spot waiting for a body to appear…with a one year old in a stroller nearby…

Rhys decided to join me in doing this round since he has a hat and camo pants! Focus the marks on his face…he tripped on the asphalt…he fussed until I picked him up and kissed him, then squirmed until I let him go to play some more…boys will be boys, I guess.

Tayler–> hat and black shirt-BYU store // vest-Wet Seal // necklace-gift // pants-Kohl’s // shoes-Sole Envy
Rhys–> hat, shirt, pants, sandals–ALL from Wal-Mart! We love the very low prices on baby clothes!
 

Rhys decided he wanted to set up the camera and be my tech crew.

  • Love the vest!

  • You are a brave woman to take these pictures by yourself with the little guy in tow! I would probably end up having some kind of a meltdown! I love how you incorporated the camo!

  • Thanks!

  • He was in his stroller while I was taking my pictures….but then got antsy as I finished

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    I love the casual look. I'm usually sporting something very similar most days!

  • I love this look! I have a more casual style, and I've always wished I could be a little more glam, but I'm starting to embrace it. 🙂

  • I typically throw on a pair of jeans/shorts and a plain colored top. But, I make sure I have cute sandals and cute earrings and a cute hair bow/headband to dress it up a bit.

  • Adding a fabric headband, flower, or bow, and making sure to have at least 2 types of jewelry on always dresses it up! That's what I typically do!

  • Very Cute thank you for sharing!!

  • I love the casual style!! Phew I always have to glam it up a little……we live in Hawaii. I love what you did it's really cute!

  • Thanks! It's been 90-100* here in Utah, so I don't like to get super dressed up…

  • Heather Serra

    You all totally nailed the casual & camo trend. I've been seeing camo make a come back which is cool because I really like that print.

  • Shann Eva

    Super cute on both of you! I love camo…especially on kids. My boys all have pants too. I also like how all the different bloggers are doing this together.

  • January Erskine

    OK Rhys is just the cutest thing! I'm dying over here.

  • I've ALWAYS loved the print (probably cuz my dad was in the Marines…)

  • Ah, so cute! Rhys is a pretty good cameraman. 🙂 These pictures are great of you, Tayler!

  • Meagan

    I love the hat! I'm a huge BYU fan and love the cargo too. Great inspiration and so much fun for the summer. Love casual clothes, especially when taking my nieces out for activities.

  • Emilie Burke

    Loving the outfit!

  • Thanks! Rhys looks so cute! He even has a pair of grey camo pants!

  • Thanks, January. I'm kind of obsessed with taking pictures of him! Almost to a point that you would call it stalker-ish if he wasn't my own baby boy!

  • He loves helping with everything! Just today, he was holding tools and banging it against the bikes as Justin set up a bike baby trailer!

  • Cougars all the way! Especially when it's so hot, you don't really want to dress up!

  • Thanks, Emilie!

  • Great pics! You guys are awesome 🙂 I love the pic of him with the tri-pod! Made me laugh.

  • Thanks! He loves playing with my "toys" 😉

  • Aubrey

    i love that the babe brought in the camo for this look. i decided from your post and one of the others that i need a BYU hat. i went to school there, and i need something to represent the place.

  • I have plenty of the football season $5 and free shirts I got from working Concessions, but I'm actually wearing my husband's hat 😉 Rhys actually has quite a few pairs of camo pants…I don't =)

  • Haha, digging the hat in the park!!

  • Thanks, Stephanie!

  • Sierra

    I love that you included your son in this one! So fun.

  • Thanks, Sierra! He's a cute pie for sure!
