The laziest of saturdays

Memorial Day weekend here in Miami Beach is a bit crazy.

It’s a weekend where people from all over come and take over the beach and the locals either leave town or don’t leave home.

So, with Will a bit hungover yesterday and with the beach invaded by out of towners, we ended up having the laziest of saturdays.

We stayed home, had pancakes for breakfast, watched movies, played, went swimming in our pool, napped…. with the exception of walking to our local bodega for some ice cream, we really didn’t leave the house.

It was great!

How is your weekend going?

Mommy Style Update

We had a pretty chill day yesterday.

We did manage to ride our bikes down to the South Pointe Elementary Green market.

There were yummy cookies, fresh veggies and fruits, a band.

It was a good way to spend a saturday morning.

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

(Today is the last day to enter our awesome Mimosa GIVEAWAY so go check it out if you haven’t already!)

Mommy Style Update

Ugh, back in Miami means goodbye to tights.

It means loose clothing (goodbye skinny pants) and time for me to wax my legs again so I can start wearing short dresses.

While in Raleigh I realized that I will have to get a bike with gears, a cruiser won’t make it over there.

That means goodbye Sally. 🙁

Here are Sally, Lily and I on our way out to run errands yesterday morning.

sunglasses- Marc Jacobs

shirt, pants and sandals- Zara (all from previous seasons)

bag- Urban Outfitters

 

Mommy Style Update

I’m trying to get back into fashion because I have missed it. (don’t worry, it is still a baby blog and there will still be a lot of Lily pictures)

I’m trying to actually get “dressed” every day like I used to before Lily was born.

I feel like I have become quite lazy about dressing and taking care of myself so, I figured this will at least make me motivated.

It might not be a daily post, or it might , either way, here’s the debut of MOMMY STYLE UPDATE.

Today: The classic white shirt.

Everyone has done it.

Mine is actually a pajama top that was hanging in my closet so I thought “why not?”.

Lily and I went to the library, to lunch and to the post office and this is what we wore:

A baguette run

It was so beautiful out all day yesterday, we really spent most of the day out on our balcony with the exception of a long morning walk.

We walked to our favorite French bakery and picked up a fresh baguette to make lunch sandwiches with.

It was a nice and easy saturday, hope you all had a great day too!

Lily wears:

dress- Old Navy

shoes- Pediped

Beachin’ it

I know that a lot of you are surrounded by snow in super cold weather and I swear I’m not rubbing these beach pictures in your face.

Beach days like yesterday are a pay back for ALL the horrible hot and humid days I go through living here. (for what seems like 8-9 months out of the year)

It had been a while (october?) since we had gone to the beach in bathing suits and had gone swimming.

It felt great!!!

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!!

Summer fashion week- day 2 (really 3)

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.

hat (vintage* BCBG), sunglasses (vintage* Marc Jacobs), tunic (vintage* Letarte), bikini (vintage* GAP)
