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!!!



Yesterday when we were headed out for our bike ride, I tried putting Lily’s sunglasses on her again.

Both Will and I have tried many times before but, she always takes them off before we even get downstairs!

Well, yesterday she kept them on!!

Maybe it was the fact that I was wearing mine, maybe she finally can deal with them on, maybe it was the mood she was in…

I don’t know but, she looked totally stylin’! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Fall fashion. Day 2

Ok, I’m back from trying to update my Portuguese ID card and passport.


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 areร‚ย  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.

Things we LOVE!

Sunglasses photo shoots with Lily at babyGap!!

It had been a while since we had all gone into babyGap and had some fun with the sunglasses but, we happened to stop in there on the way home from the beach (that’s why she is only wearing a diaper) on saturday and we had so much fun putting these sunglasses on Lily. ๐Ÿ™‚

We LOVE the way her face looks. Which one is your favorite? Look 1, 2 or 3?
