Bad teacher, a girl movie date

I’m loving my weekly (or almost weekly) dates with K.

This past wednesday we went to see Bad teacher.

We snuck in some champagne and chips (what, you don’t? you should) and enjoyed Cameron Diaz in a funny performance.

After the movie we had some pizza and wine and afterwards headed over to K’s house where we had the most fun playing with all her clothes.

It was so great trying to see what I could come up with in someone else’s closet.

We both decided that pencil skirts and head scarves are definitely the way to go for this fall. 😉

Linking up to Mandy for Steppin’ Out.

headband- CVS. jacket- UO (many moons ago, stenciled by me). tank- Theory. bag- Anthropologie. denim cut-offs- Will’s old jeans. belt- UO. booties- F21

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.

A week in small style

Do you ever feel like dressing your little one rather than yourself?

I think this past week was like that for me.

I have been feeling tired and like I look horrible.

AND… kids clothes for the most part are often so much less expensive than adult clothes that it’s just easier to get Lily dressed than myself.

Here is a week of Lily’s small style.

What do you think?

Do you have a favorite?

And as always I’m linking this to Mama loves Papa.

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. 🙂

(Don’t forget to enter in our GIVEAWAY!!!!)

headband- CVS

Mommy Style Update

Flying…. UGH, I HATE it!!

I must say that I have gotten a LOT better about it.

Can we talk about “plane” fashion?

I don’t understand those girls who wear super high heels and tight clothes when they fly.

I wish I could wear my pajamas and socks!

When I fly, I usually wear some kind of legging/jegging, a tank and a cardigan/loose shirt.

What do you like to wear when you fly?

Cardigan- Zara (when you pack light, you get to wear the same cardigan 4 days in a row)

shirt- French Connection

tank- Old Navy

Corduroy skinnies- Anthropologie

booties- French Connection

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:

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!
