Brunch

Belle just attended her very first brunch at grandma Dita's house. She didn't eat brunch but she was able to show off her new skirt which I paired with a bright pink cardigan. I was never really one to automatically think pinks and skirts and dresses when dressing up my daughter. I look at clothes and see a million possibilities, especially in this day and age where we have the boyfriend blazers, boyfriend t-shirts and boyfriend jeans, boyfriend everything made for women. All that matters is that I'm completely and utterly in love with an outfit for it to work. However, the other day I found myself having to buy Belle something that screams GIRL. When someone mistook my daughter for a boy, I didn't mind it, it was probably her hair, but when THREE people mistook her for a boy, I couldn't help but feel offended. Thankfully we already an adorable striped skirt to start with (I have thing for stripes), I just wanted something else to complete her outfit and the pink cardigan did it. I walked in the store and it was literally the first thing I saw, fell in love with it instantly. Navy blues and pinks, definitely work for me.

Necessary for every brunch.

Another necessity, machine and all.

Indian Summer

The first days of fall are usually the hottest, delaying any urge to buy anything for fall/winter and with S/S 2012 fashion shows happening at the moment it's hard for me to focus on what to buy for Fall which also happens to be my favorite time of the year to shop. Why? two words: FALL COLORS, let me save that for another entry. I guess it's time to shop soon, yes? yes. So this past week has been mostly about dogs, parks, clothes for Belle, possibly the BEST chocolate cookie on the planet and a pop-over w/ strawberry butter.

Plaid dress from Nicole and Albert, skirt (a gift from http://semisweetstyle.blogspot.com/, Sasha, thanks again!) and corduroy shorts by Baby Gap.

The cookie comes in this box and yup that's the recipe right there. Trust that I'll be trying it out.






The pups: Kemba the brindle english bulldog and Ellis the black and white boston terrier. They're busy. 




Baby update: Belle has been smiling and giggling more now. PRECIOUS.

Baby Gap for the win.

As a new mom people always tell me "don't shop for her yet she's too young", but my love for shopping  and fashion has turned a deaf ear. I have found myself frequenting a new territory called: the BABY Department and my favorite store by far has been Baby Gap. They make almost everything they have in the adult department in teeny tiny, little, itty bitty sizes, which gets me every single time. I'm basically guilty of styling my daughter like I would myself not that that's bad. How can you not? They make baby ruffle knit cardigans, baby jeans, baby dresses, baby denim jacket, baby trench coat.. I can keep going.
So let's start this revamped blog with the baby jeggings I bought for the little princess. 
It's not a major fashion statement for us adults but it might just be in the baby world.

I thought folding them added a cute little detail.
