GAP

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 πŸ™‚ )

Linking up to Mandy for Steppin’ Out.

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…

earrings- Anthropologie (gifted by Will). top- GAP

melasma and sunspot free skin- Rodan&Fields Reverse Regimen

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!)

A girl date

Wednesday night I had a dinner and movie date with auntie K.

I left Will and Lily playing in the pool and auntie K and I headed over to Books&Books for dinner and then to the movies to see The Tree of Life.

The food at Books&Books was great as always (love that place) but the movie???

I feel like I didn’t get what I wanted.

Don’t get me wrong, I love artsy flicks more than your average person but, I feel like The Tree of Life was trying too hard. (as well as having too much science/discovery channel scenes)

I also feel like every movie I have watched lately has no ending and I’m tired of “make up your own ending” kind of movies.

Have any of you seen The Tree of Life?

What did you think?

No slave to fashion

Last friday I joined auntie K and some of her co-workers for happy hour at Doraku.

I decided to wear one of my favorite Zara pants.

I purchased them in 2009 when I was pregnant with Lily, wore them throughout my pregnancy and I still wear them all the time.

I read in either Elle or Bazaar that harem pants should be “stored away”.

You know what though?

I can’t store them away.

I love my harem military pants and no matter what fashion says, I will continue on wearing them.

Do you have items like that?

Items that you love so much that even though fashion says “store away” you can’t?

Graffiti style

It is days like yesterday that make Will and I look at each other and say “I am so glad we decided to stay in  Miami”.

We spent the morning at the beach and in the afternoon we went for a ride in the car to check out all the graffiti in Wynwood. (I have been wanting to go back and take pictures for a while)

We walked around, checked out some awesome graffiti, took pictures and found the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar where we decided to sit outside and have some dinner.

Let me stop for a second and tell you about the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, I have never eaten at a place with SO much AMAZING art all around.

AMAZING! (and the food was pretty good too)

So, where else could we live where we could have the beach and awesome urban city life also?

Miami, we are so happy we stayed. πŸ™‚

This post is picture heavy because not only was there amazing art everywhere but, I also want to show you “my” Miami.

Not the Miami The Real Housewives of Miami show you. πŸ˜‰

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 obsessed with a touch of HOT pink lately.

I’m still searching for the perfect shade of pink lipstick but until then, this GapKids belt (yes, it’s kids) will do.

Sunday late afternoon we went over to Max’s house for a delicious meal that he and his mom made.

He lives a bit north of us right on the water and has the most beautiful view out of his balcony.

We had a great night.

Mommy Style Update

Inspired by the beautiful flower prints they are showing for Spring/Summer this year, I decided to bust out an old little jacket of mine.

I purchased this jacket back in 2004, wore it to death until about 2006 and it had been sitting in my closet “resting” until last night.

I donate clothes a lot but, for some reason, I always hold onto my jackets.

Last night I had a mommy date with Claudia and Barbara.

We have known one another for almost a year, always do things together with Lily, Sofia and Dylan but had never done anything without the kiddos.

Claudia’s birthday is tomorrow so we decided to go out and have some dinner and drinks.

We had a lovely time. (so lovely there are no pictures because we were too busy talking and having fun!)

Happy saturday everyone!!
