Birds of a feather, flock together

After lounging at home for a while, yesterday late afternoon even though it was raining, we decided to go for a drive to Coconut Grove and maybe eat somewhere we had never been.

I got lily dressed first and after I dressed myself, I realized that I dressed myself like her.

Or did I dress her like me?

Either way, we had the same look going on.

Before heading out, I asked Will to take our picture and while he was doing so, I noticed he had birds on his belt.

“Birds of a feather, flock together” I thought to myself.

The three of us seemed to all have something that went with the other. πŸ™‚

With Yelp’s help (do you guys ever use it? we love it!), we ended up eating at the Peacock Garden Cafe. (perfect but not planned for our bird theme).

It was lovely to be able to sit outside under a big awning looking and listening to the rain and thunderstorms.

Once it cleared up, a rainbow appeared and the sky looked the most beautiful I have seen it in a while.

Hope you all had a great saturday as well.

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!

No slave to fashion

Last friday I joined auntie K and some of her co-workers for happy hour at Doraku.

I decided to wear one of my favorite Zara pants.

I purchased them in 2009 when I was pregnant with Lily, wore them throughout my pregnancy and I still wear them all the time.

I read in either Elle or Bazaar that harem pants should be “stored away”.

You know what though?

I can’t store them away.

I love my harem military pants and no matter what fashion says, I will continue on wearing them.

Do you have items like that?

Items that you love so much that even though fashion says “store away” you can’t?

Graffiti style

It is days like yesterday that make Will and I look at each other and say “I am so glad we decided to stay in  Miami”.

We spent the morning at the beach and in the afternoon we went for a ride in the car to check out all the graffiti in Wynwood. (I have been wanting to go back and take pictures for a while)

We walked around, checked out some awesome graffiti, took pictures and found the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar where we decided to sit outside and have some dinner.

Let me stop for a second and tell you about the Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, I have never eaten at a place with SO much AMAZING art all around.

AMAZING! (and the food was pretty good too)

So, where else could we live where we could have the beach and awesome urban city life also?

Miami, we are so happy we stayed. πŸ™‚

This post is picture heavy because not only was there amazing art everywhere but, I also want to show you “my” Miami.

Not the Miami The Real Housewives of Miami show you. πŸ˜‰

Mommy Style Update

Last friday was such a long, crazy but fun day for me.

I spent the day at the Fairchild Botanical Graden with Lily, Darren, Zura and Lien.

Came home at around 6pm, quickly took a shower, got dressed and was out the door at 7pm to meet up with Kristin and Nilsa for a fun girl’s night out.

We had drinks and then headed over to the New World Center for a great orchestra with a DJ performance.

It was a great show and the new Frank Gehry space is unbelievable!

Fall fashion. Day 7

Last day of Fall Fashion. Booooooooo πŸ™

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! πŸ˜‰

cheers!

Fall fashion. Day 4

TIGHTS!!!!

How about that?

You get no stripes and no jeans/leggings from me today.

The temperature dropped a bit this morning so it was nice putting on warmer clothes.

You are getting a profile shot from me (it’s better than frontal anyway) because Lily slept horribly last night (she’s sick). Which meant that I slept horribly last night and have a tired face once again. (I don’t know about you winning Allie)

What I’m wearing: Knitted hat by Gap, Earrings (same as yesterday) are vintage, Long sweater cardigan by Zara, Dress/tunic by French Connection (it’s probably 6 years old but I still always wear it and love it), Tights (my faves, I love how they are cable knit and have colored specks) by Steve Madden and…. Booties by French Connection (yes, it’s the 4th day in a row that I’m wearing them. I might wear them the whole week! πŸ˜‰ )
