steppin' out saturday {best friend edition}

today was a much-needed day.  do you ever get so caught up in the things that are going on in your life that you don't even realize how far out of touch you've become with those you're closest with?  i definitely got to that point recently with my best friend, who also happens to be my cousin, falynne.  well, last week she called me out on this fact, and i'm glad she did.  i didn't realize until i was forced to stop and think about it that i hadn't seen her in four months.  and the last two times i've seen her, it's been in a party setting with almost no one-on-one time.  this is a long way from college days when i used to randomly make the 45 minute drive to her old place to hang out and make let her feed and entertain me.

so today i made the now two-hour drive and we got some quality time in.  we went to a craft show (i know, this is becoming a theme in my life), we had lunch, we caught up.  and at the end of the day, i was sad to leave.  although we are such completely different people, there's something about our friendship that just works.

oh, and not to mention her little boy owen is so cute and fun and just at the absolute perfect age.  he is still a little clumsy on his feet, which is precious to watch, but he is also starting to comprehend so much; when falynne asks if she can put his shoes on, he backs up to her and plops on the floor, he knows all of his books that have kitties in them, and at times, you can just see the wheels turning when you look at him.

so without further ado, our saturday:

owen clearly discovered his love of ketchup

top:  forever21
jeans:  forever21
necklace:  h&m
shoes:  jessica simpson

tshirt:  old navy
jeans:  levi's
shoes:  air jordans (courtesy of his uncles)

and because i didn't realize until i got home that i didn't take a full outfit picture, a late self-attempt:

i wish i could say part of this outfit was creative, thrifted or mixed-and-matched from my closet, but i went shopping last night and pretty much picked out the majority at once:
dress:  forever21
sweater:  forever21
tights:  vera wang for kohl's
boots:  jc penney
belt:  thrifted
earrings:  i think claire's, purchased ages ago
