this past weekend was spent north of here in the outerbanks of north carolina for a family wedding
beefeater, fresca, muddled strawberry, lime on ice
it’s delicious and super refreshing
perfect for this spring/summer
let me know what you think of it if you try it
oh, and of course we had to have a mini photo shoot with barbie
happy monday everyone!
I don’t know about you guys but the heat makes me soooooooo lazy and unmotivated.
I know that we made the decision to stay in Miami so suck it up Claudia and, it’s not as hot as it is in other places but, it is just so hot for too long down here.
I’m definitely more of a spring and autumn kind of girl.
I love mid 60’s to low 70’s during the day and cooler nights.
I just always feel so much more inspired and motivated in cooler weather, it’s like my brain is awakened by the cold.
And don’t even get me started on fall fashion… LOVE it!!! Love to layer, love boots, jackets, scarves, hats…
Summer fashion? Boooooring.
You can tell Spring is here.
Trees around my neighborhood have started to bloom and there are so many more flowers. (need to take some pics)
It is definitely Spring in our bedroom!
The orchid that I was waiting on, finally has one fully opened flower. (and another opened just this morning)
AND…. the bamboo tree we have had for 4 years also bloomed.
It was the strangest thing.
It grew these weird stems from each branch and now each stem is loaded with small white flowers that only open late in the afternoon and last all through the night.
They are so fragrant, we can smell them the minute we walk in the room.
I love Spring!
Not everyone can afford Zara, right?
And not everyone has a Zara near by. (they should really consider online shopping)
Old Navy never fails.
I buy a lot of it for Lily.
The quality is good and you can’t beat their prices. (specially when they have sales)
Here are some of my favorite looks from the Old Navy girls spring collection.
After I posted the post below, my friend Deanna commented on how her sister would like me to do the same thing for boys.
I must admit that it is way easier for me to dress the ladies but I have dressed a few men in my life.
So, here they are, my top looks for boys from Zara Spring 2011 Kids.
(Please let me know what you think. Do you like the looks? Would you dress your boy in them? Or does everything just suck?)
Yesterday morning we took Lily downstairs to check out all the pretty flowers that had bloomed.
Even though it’s a small yard that we have in the back of our building, there are so many pretty flowers there this time of the year.
Lily was of course appreciating the flowers by trying to rip them off their stems and stick them in her mouth. 😉
It was a wonderful easy morning spent amongst pretty flowers and under another clear blue sky.
Today is a lazy gloomy sunday so far but we are having fun with Lily on her play mat so we are not complaining.
We wish you all a wonderful weekend!
Here is Lily yesterday wearing a bodysuit by babyGap checking the flowers.
