A Christmas day walk

Unlike the past two years where it snowed like crazy, this past Christmas day was perfect for a walk in the woods.

Clear blue sky, crisp air….

While some napped during the afternoon, Will, Lily, Hayes, the dogs and I went for a walk.

It’s always one of the great things I miss a lot when I am in Miami.

I feel like my head is still in a Christmas/birthday fog and tomorrow night will be New Year’s Eve.

Are you all ready for 2012? I am and am not all at the same time.

Happy friday everyone!


My snowy birthday

Good morning small stylers!

Yesterday was my 39th birthday.

Will, Lily and I went to Snowshoe for a Tex/Mex lunch and some snow play. (which Lily really enjoyed)

It had snowed in the morning so there was fresh snow and it was a beautiful cold winter afternoon.

Later at home there was a wonderful home cooked meal and a birthday cake baked by Hayes.

It was a great birthday spent with family and friends.

Linking to Morgan for small style.

Lily wears: coat, red fleece dress and ugg boots- hand me downs from cousin adelaide. furry hat- h&m. leg warmers- old navy. tights underneath- kiabi


Eating snow

Lily got to play in the snow a lot last year but, because she is only two, this year it’s like she never saw snow before so it’s like the first time all over again.

That’s one of the wonderful things about having kids, right? You get to experience firsts again and again.

It snowed a bit saturday night so yesterday we took Lily out and let her experience snow again for the first (second) time.

Her favorite part? Eating it!

She kept on dipping her mitten in the snow and putting it in her mouth.

And of course she shared with Lola, Will and I.

P.S.- I’m loving Lily in the hat Will and I got for her at H&M in Portugal last year. I think she looks yummy!


Winter stills

Before the snow covers everything around here, saturday morning I took a walk and took some pictures of a very different landscape to me.

I’m used to seeing this place all green and plush in August or completely covered with snow in December.

As I walked, flurries started to come down. There was nothing but the quiet of winter.

It’s a magical time of year.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, we sure did. I have lots of pictures to share with you.

Happy monday.


Seriously Zara, stop it!

Happy monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.

Autumn is around the corner. The temperature and the leaves have changed since we got here to West Virginia.

Autumn has always been one of my favorite seasons, not just because of the changing of the leaves and the cooler temperatures but, because of its fashion.

I love Fall fashion! All the sweaters, scarves, tights, boots…

Zara is one of those places that has been good to me for over a decade now. It always fits me well. From shoes, to coats, to pants. It usually all works.

So, I logged on a few nights ago to see what they came up with for Fall-Winter of 2011.

As usual, they didn’t disappoint. There are beautiful coats, trousers, skirts, dresses… and I love their color palette!

Then I checked the girls collection.

Oh my, it is wonderful!

Here are a few of my favorite picks. For Lily of course. 😉

What do you think? Do you have a favorite?
