Old Navy

New Salt Waters!

Happy december everyone!

If you have been coming here for a while, you probably know how much I love Salt Water sandals.

Lily wore her green surfer style almost every day until she outgrew them.

Once that moment happened, there was no question in my mind about ordering her another pair.

She will probably wear Salt Waters until she one day will be big enough to say “no more”.

The first pair were ordered through Zappos however, this next pair were ordered through Little Monkey Toes because they had them for a much better price ($19.99!).

What’s your favorite brand of kids sandals?

A carriage ride

While in Beja we went to the public park every day.

I was so anxious to get Lily on a carriage ride because it was something I loved as a little girl.

Well, the pony finally showed up, Lily watched the other children go for a ride, she waited her turn and when I went to put her in the carriage, she said “no mommy, no!”.

I guess I will have to wait until next year when she will be a bit older.

Back in Miami… small style

We have been back in Miami now since sunday and I finally know what it is about this place that drives me nuts.

Well, I kind of knew before but I have total confirmation now. It’s the weather!!!!

Miami’s weather kills me. Seriously.

After being in WV for a month and then coming back here to this heat, I feel so unmotivated and tired. I don’t want to do anything!

Before Lily came along, I was mostly at work in the a/c and even though I complained about the weather, it was nothing compared to how I could complain about it now from being out and about with Lily all the time.

I was so tired this week I didn’t even bother carrying my camera around. Here are some cell pics of Lily playing on Lincoln Rd.

Tiny apple… small style

One of Lily’s favorite things to do when we go for walks around here is to stop by the apple tree and pick a “tiny apple” to eat.

It’s something we do almost daily and something I will miss doing with her.

This is our last small style post here in West Virginia, we will be leaving on saturday.

We have had a wonderful month and will miss this place madly.

The two outfits below are my favorites from last week.

Elmo!… small style

Although Elmo rode in the car with Lily from Miami to West Virginia and he hung out for a few days in the library/play room when we first got here, he had been forgotten about in Lily’s crib.

Until last week that is.

Out of nowhere Lily looked at me and said “Elmo?”.

We went to grab him from the crib, she put him in a doll’s stroller cousin Adelaide left behind and wheeled him outside to meet Lola.

It’s nice to see that even though Lily is surrounded by new friends, she doesn’t forget her old ones. 😉

Dress Style

Aren’t dresses the easiest garment to put on?

Living in a hot climate (Miami) I find that dresses are a must!

Not only are dresses the coolest thing to wear but, they are also the most practical.

No matter how nice skirts and shorts are, you still have to think about what top to put on with them.

With dresses, you throw it on and that’s it!

These pictures were actually taken last week at the library courtyard.

Lily’s friend Leona happened to have been there that day and they had a good time playing after story time.

Blueberry pancakes, a suit and a yellow house

We had quite the busy day yesterday.

Well, not that busy, it just felt that way because we left the house and it wasn’t even 10am and got back at 5pm.

We started off the morning with our traditional saturday pancake breakfast.

Lily ate 3 pancakes this time. 3!!! (really?)

We stopped off at Old Navy to get Lily a proper swimsuit and then at Men’s Wearhouse to get Will a proper suit as well.

It was almost 2 when we were done and we were all starving.

There was a Chipotle near by and that’s where we stuffed our faces.

I had never eaten there before, it was pretty good.

At 3:30 we went to look at a house we went to look at last saturday.

It has stayed in our heads and I think we pretty much love (want) it but I don’t want to talk about it too much because I’m superstitious that way.

Just keep your fingers crossed for us please!

Lily’s small style

This past week was filled with dresses for the most part because it is getting hot out!

Small style… you know who completely blows my mind?

Stella McCartney!!

Not only is she my favorite women’s designer but once she had her own kids, she started a design a line for kids.

Have you all checked it out?

Take a LOOK, it’s insane!!!!

I loved the line she did for Gapkids, it was a bit pricey but I did manage to grab the sweetest little dress for Lily on sale for $12.99. (the monday picture)

It’s labeled as a 3T but it’s obviously not.

It’s by far one of my favorite dresses that Lily has at the moment.

What are some of your favorite children designers? (even if you can’t afford them 😉 )

As always I am linking this small style to Mama loves Papa.
