Mommy Style Update

I wore a dress to the park yesterday.

I hardly ever do that because really, why would one wear a dress to the park?

Well, I thought that I need to take advantage of these hair free legs AND if I don’t wear my dresses to the park, where will I wear them to?

The park is the only place I go some days.

In case you are wondering where I am, I’m in the lobby of our building on the way out the door. (we don’t have a full length mirror)

Don’t forget to enter the MIMOSA GIVEAWAY!!

see what Lily is doing? she’s taking off her headband. BAD MODEL!!

dress- Zara (TRF)

shoes- Bass (best purchase ever!)

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!!

Mommy Style Update

Lily and I went to Ross yesterday.

I was hoping I would find some cute sandals for her since the other ones I got are still a bit big but, instead I walked out with 3 more Eric Carle books.

I looked in my closet and saw one of my Zara tops from last year that when I purchased it, I purchased it with the intentions of it being a “nicer” top.

Well, my social life is close to none these days (sad but true) and life is too short.

So, I wore it casually. 🙂

Mommy Style Update

I’ve decided to grow out my hair. For now. (like right now, who knows what will happen later…)

I’m not a fan of the growing out stage and the one thing I always turn to are headscarves. (I have a large collection, HairCoverings anyone?)

When Lily saw me wrap my scarf around my head yesterday, she tapped her head. (meaning that she wanted one)

I grabbed a little neck scarf from my drawer and wrapped it around her little head.

We both stepped out for our sunday outing sporting some headgear. 😉

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

Very girlie indeed

Lily is becoming quite the little girl.

She loves jewelry.

She likes picking out her own shoes. (I would like to say she gets this only from me but, you should see Will’s shoe collection)

She likes bags. (ok, she gets this from me 😉 )

Lately, whenever she and I are headed out and she sees me grab my bag, she grabs a bag.

Here she is as she walked around our neighborhood yesterday.

I like to call it LILY AND THE CITY.

what? you didn’t know that 2 bags is the new trend?

Fall fashion. Day 7

Last day of Fall Fashion. Booooooooo 🙁

It is a windy sunday here in Beja, Portugal.

It will be a chill day. Will is here (YAY!) so we are just hanging out and spending time together.

I had SO much fun this week!

It was really wonderful visiting new as well as some old blogs and getting to know you lovely ladies through your personal style.

Since we are in Portugal and there really is no Halloween here, we are not dressing up.

However, with my Portuguese Sagres beer I CHEER all of you.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!!

I’m wearing: Headband by CVS, Earrings are vintage (you’ve seen them this week already), Scarf by Scoop NYC, Grandpa cardigan sweater by GAP, T-Shirt by Gap, Tank underneath by Gap, Jeggings by Gap (since when did I become a GAP mom? not that there is anything wrong with the Gap, obviously, but still!!!), and moccasin/shoes by Boutique 9.

Oh! And Lily went to the cafe with Will so there are no pictures of her but she looks cute! 😉

(Please vote for us here. Thank you!)

cheers!
