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!!

A beachy sunday

Fall is here and you can somewhat feel it in Miami but, it’s still hot enough to go to the beach.

The weather has been lovely.

It’s no longer in the 90’s. It’s now in the 80’s.

The air feels lighter, there is less humidity.

The water is definitely cooler than it was last month.

There is a breeze…

We had a great day at the beach yesterday morning. (boots, jeans, a sweater and cooler weather would have been great also. πŸ˜‰ )

It’s complicated

Mine and Will’s relationship with Miami is….. complicated.

There are many things we love about this place. Our friends, the beach, the great community we now have around us, how easy it is to get around, the variety of culture, the art scene, our friends (did I mention friends already? we really love our friends)…

There are many things we hate about it too. How hot it is all year long (I think it’s hot 10 months out of the year), the lack of seasons (both Will and I really miss Fall), how flat the scenery is (it’s FLAT here!), how far Miami is from everything (if you drive for 5 hours, you are still in Florida and everything is still FLAT!)…

And just when we talk about moving out of state again (Raleigh, NC is still #1 choice), I have wonderful days like yesterday only to make things more complicated!

Lily and I had an amazing morning at the beach. It really couldn’t have been more amazing. (only Will there would have made it more amazing)
