7 of 30: craig monkey

Another backlog post. I wore this on Monday as my drive in a car for hours then visit Hearst Castle outfit. As you can see from the wrinkles, I was obviously sitting all day. I also have with me, Craig: an adorable stuffed monkey that was Robert's as a child. I myself have a stuffed seal named Pip (after Pippin from Lord of the Rings, since I was a fantasy nut in elementary and middle school--oh wait, still am. whatever). While Robert was away, we constantly switched custody of the "babies." But anyhow, Craig was in the car with us driving from Socal to Portland.

You finally get to see the pattern up close :)

And, it is silly, but the photoshoot started out being in the hotel room, since I "matched the room" according to Robert. But it was hard to get decent shots inside, so we moved out. Wish these had worked out, since I was jumping around on the bed and stuff. Hehe.

    plus that monkey just makes me heart it more :)

    yay for catching up on the backlog :)

  2. So cute. :) I love the tights.

  3. :-O I love Lord of the rings. I have watched the movies several times, and you can bet that by the time the new hobbit movie arrives on cinemas, I will be there.
    And I love the pattern of your shirt. So cute.

  4. These shorts are so cute! Love the story of Craig Monkey and Pip seal. Sounds like it should be a kids book ;)

  5. The monkey reminds me of a stuffed mickey mouse I carried around (and sometimes still pull out in times of stress... which is more often than naught). I do love stuffed animals :)

  6. oo loved how you mixed all the patterns, omg adorable monkey plushie! :)

  7. awwww the monkey!!! stuffed animals are the best photo props. Like Herbie the magic pillow pet. He is my best prop =p That top is so cute but I never realized before that there is a tiny heart print?? Love it!

  8. Oh Craig is so cute! And how sweet of you and Robert to share the custody of your stuffed animals hehe.

  11. Great road trip outfit! I really like the pattern on the shirt and the tights with the shorts. Did you guys stay in Cambria? Jasen and I went there for our anniversary a couple years ago. I love driving up the California coast so much.

  12. I love the shots in the room! It's great you "match" it. :)
    And the monkey is adorable, so is the story.
