Raptured

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great weekend.

No, we weren’t raptured. I just didn’t know what to title this post and was inspired by Will’s shirt for The Rapture.

We had Lily’s 2nd birthday party yesterday and it was a success.

I have a lot of pictures to go through before I share them with you on here but, I wanted to participate in Mandy’s Steppin’ Out because it has been quite a while.

So, here is what we wore. Come back tomorrow to see pics of the party!

A Bryan Ferry kinda night

Bryan Ferry performed here on thursday night.

Unfortunately none of us got it together and got tickets but, we had a Bryan Ferry and 80’s music dance-athon at Darren’s house.

It was a super fun night!

Here are some cell pics of what I wore. (sorry no pics of us dancing. i was having too much fun 🙂 )

P.S.- Can I just also say that every time I put on a pair of ripped whatever, I am always reminded of my late grandfather who when I was 16 tried to give me money so I could go buy some pants with no holes. It’s funny how some things always stay with you…

Ola

Friday night I helped K do some shopping, we had a great dinner at Ola and went dancing at Purdy!

While getting ready for the night, I had some wardrobe issues.

Do you guys ever look into your full closets and yet feel like you have nothing to wear?

That is how I felt while I was getting ready so… I just decided to throw on some of my favorite items and hoped that they would work.

Lily on the other hand, got a new Mimosa shirt in the mail and of course had to put it on right away. (thank you Holly and Ariel!)

Birds of a feather, flock together

After lounging at home for a while, yesterday late afternoon even though it was raining, we decided to go for a drive to Coconut Grove and maybe eat somewhere we had never been.

I got lily dressed first and after I dressed myself, I realized that I dressed myself like her.

Or did I dress her like me?

Either way, we had the same look going on.

Before heading out, I asked Will to take our picture and while he was doing so, I noticed he had birds on his belt.

“Birds of a feather, flock together” I thought to myself.

The three of us seemed to all have something that went with the other. 🙂

With Yelp’s help (do you guys ever use it? we love it!), we ended up eating at the Peacock Garden Cafe. (perfect but not planned for our bird theme).

It was lovely to be able to sit outside under a big awning looking and listening to the rain and thunderstorms.

Once it cleared up, a rainbow appeared and the sky looked the most beautiful I have seen it in a while.

Hope you all had a great saturday as well.

Bad teacher, a girl movie date

I’m loving my weekly (or almost weekly) dates with K.

This past wednesday we went to see Bad teacher.

We snuck in some champagne and chips (what, you don’t? you should) and enjoyed Cameron Diaz in a funny performance.

After the movie we had some pizza and wine and afterwards headed over to K’s house where we had the most fun playing with all her clothes.

It was so great trying to see what I could come up with in someone else’s closet.

We both decided that pencil skirts and head scarves are definitely the way to go for this fall. 😉

Friday family happy hour

Friday late afternoon when Will got home from work, we both had the same thought in mind: family happy hour.

So, the 3 of us quickly changed and headed out the door.

Before the rain came, we got to walk around Lincoln Rd a bit and have a drink.

I had an Orange Blossom Pilsner which I had never tried before but loved!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. 🙂

Earrings

I’m an earring girl. A gold earring girl at that.

When I was a teenager I was definitely a ring girl. A silver ring girl.

I think I wore a silver ring on every finger.

Then, in my early twenties I switched to gold (my mom was so happy!) and I switched to earrings.

I have been a gold earring girl ever since then.

If I could go into anyone’s jewelry box, it would be Frida Kahlo’s.

What about you? Do you wear jewelry? Are you an earring, ring or necklace girl? If you could have anyone’s jewelry, whose would it be?

Here are some of my faves.

the turquoise on the left are my oldest pair and the ones I wear daily. all purchased by me

22k Portuguese gold. left and right gifted by my mom, middle gifted by my dad

left purchased by me, middle gifted by an old friend, right gifted by Will (love them!). all from Anthropologie

both gifted by Darren (picked by me 😉 ). left from Lincoln Rd vintage market, right from Anthropologie (love!!)

Awesomeness

Kristin and I went out for a little happy hour friday night.

After a few awesome lychee martinis and some sushi, we decided to explore some of our favorite stores on Lincoln Rd (Anthropologie and CB2) and go look at some awesome art.

All and all a pretty awesome night.
