Sorry, stripes 2 days in row. I guess I’m liking stripes a lot this season also. Both for me and for Lily. 😉
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.
Lily has become quite the little bonnet (they are not exactly bonnets but I like calling them that) wearer around here.
Between the knitted caps that I brought and the ones that avo Carmo crocheted (along with matching sweaters), Lily’s head is nice and warm when she heads out to the cafe with avo Ricardo in the morning.
Today we had to go to Target to get some diapers and house cleaning products.
At first I thought about what cute outfit I would wear to share with you on our trip there but then…. I thought about how much more fun and challenging it would be (mostly for me) if I actually went to Target and put together a whole entire outfit with their own items.
So, that’s what I did!
While Will and Lily were busy shopping and checking off items on our list, I was busy putting together this Sex and the City (Carrie Bradshaw channeled me) inspired outfit.
EVERYTHING (and I mean everything) but my undergarments are from Target. (and no, Target did not pay me for this. ;))
I didn’t exactly calculate the whole entire cost of all the items together but I think they totaled around $100.00. (+ or -)
Today’s fashion post is about beach style. (since Lily and I went to the beach this morning)
My favorite things to wear to the beach are a hat, sunglasses, a long sleeved cotton tunic (I prefer long sleeves so the sun is not beating straight down on the skin, it’s less hot believe it or not), long lounge pants and flip flops.
When entering the library yesterday morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see Cari with her niece Amanda.
I had met Cari with Amanda at the playground the previous week and had told her about library mondays.
We all had a wonderful time singing and listening to story time as usual and before leaving Cari asked for my number.
Cari: “Claudia, can I get your number? You seem to be the mom in the know”.
A quick flashback went through me.
Not too long (but yet what seems to be lifetime ago) when I worked retail, I was the one my co-workers would refer customers and hotel guests to.
Back then, I was in the know of the hottest clubs, restaurants, lounges, anything that had to do with going out on this beach on any day of the week.
How my life has changed, I quickly thought to myself.
Me: “When did that happen?”
Now I’m in the know of library mondays, afternoon pool tuesdays at Sebastian’s, meet-up beach thursdays, music classes, free museum days, diapers, cereal, strollers, bottles, blankets….anything that has to do with babies.
A big smile came across my face….thank you Lily! 🙂
