Mommy Style Update

How was your cinco de Mayo yesterday?

I don’t know why but I have celebrated and love celebrating this holiday for quite sometime.

We ate Mexican food for lunch and then later on went to El Rancho Grande to check out what was going on.

We ended up at Zeke’s with just regular $4.00 beer. πŸ˜‰

It’s friday… have a great weekend everyone!

Mommy Style Update

I’m a jeans girl.

Jeans and dresses really.

I like skirts (I have 2 to be exact) but, whenever I go to put them on, I always just put on a dress or pants/jeans instead.

I have stayed true to my jeans through all these years.

Going out with my girls who I used to work with, means “look your best”.

We all worked retail, we all have our own personal style and when it comes to dressing, my girls are NO joke!

Everything I wore out last night with the exception of the vest (1 year old), I have owned for many years.

Doesn’t it feel great when you can pull something together from things in your closet that you have had for years (and years and years)?

vest- UO (on sale for $9.99!)

Date night

Will and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary yesterday. (can’t believe we have only been married for a year, feels like forever)

Uncle Darren came over to watch Lily (sleep) so both Will and I could go out on a proper date. (thanks uncle Darren!)

We went to Espanola Way to A La Folie, our favorite crepe place.

We had a romantic dinner, walked around, looked at some art, checked out the new Symphony New World Center.

It was a wonderful night.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Fall fashion. Day 7

Last day of Fall Fashion. Booooooooo πŸ™

It is a windy sunday here in Beja, Portugal.

It will be a chill day. Will is here (YAY!) so we are just hanging out and spending time together.

I had SO much fun this week!

It was really wonderful visiting new as well as some old blogs and getting to know you lovely ladies through your personal style.

Since we are in Portugal and there really is no Halloween here, we are not dressing up.

However, with my Portuguese Sagres beer I CHEER all of you.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!

I’m wearing: Headband by CVS, Earrings are vintage (you’ve seen them this week already), Scarf by Scoop NYC, Grandpa cardigan sweater by GAP, T-Shirt by Gap, Tank underneath by Gap, Jeggings by Gap (since when did I become a GAP mom? not that there is anything wrong with the Gap, obviously, but still!!!), and moccasin/shoes by Boutique 9.

Oh! And Lily went to the cafe with Will so there are no pictures of her but she looks cute! πŸ˜‰

cheers!

Fall fashion. Day 6

Another grey, cold and rainy day here in Beja, Portugal. (it’s ok really, we have had beautiful weather up until now)

We are going to Lisboa to pick Will up at the airport in a little while and we are super excited!!! (we have never been apart for this long)

My inspiration today is the painter Gustav Klimt. He is one of my favorite artists and when he painted he always wore a long smock.

My tunic isn’t necessarily long πŸ˜‰ but, it reminds me of the painting smocks I used to wear in pre-school.

What I’m wearing: Knitted hat by Urban Outfitters, Earrings by Anthropologie, Tunic by some random Portuguese label, Shirt underneath by Forever 21 (31 πŸ˜‰ ), Tights by some other random Portuguese label, Bag by Zara, Booties by French Connection (they’re baaaaack!!!)

Fall fashion. Day 4

TIGHTS!!!!

How about that?

You get no stripes and no jeans/leggings from me today.

The temperature dropped a bit this morning so it was nice putting on warmer clothes.

You are getting a profile shot from me (it’s better than frontal anyway) because Lily slept horribly last night (she’s sick). Which meant that I slept horribly last night and have a tired face once again. (I don’t know about you winning Allie)

What I’m wearing: Knitted hat by Gap, Earrings (same as yesterday) are vintage, Long sweater cardigan by Zara, Dress/tunic by French Connection (it’s probably 6 years old but I still always wear it and love it), Tights (my faves, I love how they are cable knit and have colored specks) by Steve Madden and…. Booties by French Connection (yes, it’s the 4th day in a row that I’m wearing them. I might wear them the whole week! πŸ˜‰ )

Fall fashion. Day 3

Stripes anyone????

Sorry, stripes 2 days in row. I guess I’m liking stripes a lot this season also. Both for me and for Lily. πŸ˜‰

To change the scenery a bit (sorry, no terrace pics yet this morning), I took these in the bedroom as we got ready.

What I’m wearing: Striped sweater by Scoop NYC, Layering tank underneath by Gapbody, The Kiss Jeans by AG, Knitted cap by Urban Outfitters, Earrings are vintage, and Booties (yes, again!) by French Connection.

What Lily is wearing: Striped shirt by Old Navy, Denim overalls by babyGap, Socks by Old Navy, Shoes/Booties by Pablosky Kids.

Fall fashion. Day 2

Ok, I’m back from trying to update my Portuguese ID card and passport.

Drama!!

Will be harder than I thought.

Anyway, it is such a beautiful (and warm) day here it hardly feels like fall.

I just realized after taking the pictures that I’m big time into navy and gray this fall.

Striped shirt by Zara (I love Zara!), White tank by Gapbody, Corduroy legging/pants by Anthropologie (seriously, I have to try really hard to not put these on every day, I bought them in gray and olive green. they are  awesome!!), Bag by Urban Outfitters (also functions as a diaper bag), Headband by CVS (6 colors for like $5.00. hello!), Sunglasses by Marc Jacobs (old but LOVE!), Traditional Portuguese gold earrings that were a gift from my dad, Booties by French Connection (you will seriously see these on my feet almost every day because i LOVE them!!)

Is everyone else having as much fun as me doing this?

Thanks Emeryjo!!
