Banana Republic Romper

I’m a mom so I know a thing or two about rompers, but to be honest, I never actually thought about buying one for myself. For starters, I have a really long torso and most rompers/jumpsuits are too short for me and secondly, I never found one that I thought went with my style. Most are super short and sexy but I prefer a little longer and more consevative/classic. This romper from Banana Republic was the perfect blend of what I wanted. Length, both in torso and in legs, and classic ruffle detailing.

Peasant dress

I gotta be honest, I’m not totally sure that name is politically correct. I mean, I’m kind of making assumptions to what peasants wear when they may in fact be wearing something totally different and take my post’s title to be offensive…so for that, I apologize in advance ;)
But I do love the look of this “possibly” peasant style dress. It’s flowy, it’s easy and with the right pair of shoes, it can make quite an entrance…so maybe it’s not so peasanty after all??

Silk Dress

I’m a big fan of natural fabrics. Give me all the cotton, silk and linen in the store and I’m a happy camper.
There’s just something nice about wearing it and in my opinion, you always look top notch. Don’t get me wrong, of course I own polyester and blends but I find that more often than not, I find myself gravitating towards the items in my wardrobe that are breathable.
They just make me feel ahhhhhhh.
Banana Republic gifted me this gorgeous silk dress last year right before my preggo belly popped so I didn’t get a chance to truly enjoy it so it’s finally getting some use now.
I actually think the colors and the print are really great for fall.

Gucci Soho Disco Bag

Fall is upon us…at least in theory although not quite yet in temps here in Miami.
Nonetheless, the summery looks are being put away and more neutral fall looks are coming out and being shown.

This is a classic Miami interpretation of fall fashion. A silk shirt dress, little booties and a fun bag.
This Gucci Soho Disco bag that I purchased in Gstaad this summer is the perfect little accessory to make my look a little more “fallish”
And for me, I’m all about easy peasy dressing so this totally works for my life right now. I feel like I can be dressed in ten minutes flat…and moms, you know this is a big deal!

Fashion for a Cause

Hello, babies!

Can you believe it? I’m back in the cyber world…although if you check my social media channels, I never really left, I simply took a blogging break. Being a mom of two babies plus living that thing called life really left me with little time to work on my blog….but now, I’m back and I’m more excited than ever to share with you some fashion and of course, some mommy tales.

My first post back is a fabulous one at that. I’m so proud and happy to be part of the Fashion for a Cause campaign “Bloggers Against Breast Cancer” for the third time in my blogging career.
This is such an important cause and having a daughter makes it even more relevant to me. Continue reading →

Looking Forward with Sculptra Aesthetic

This post is sponsored by Sculptra ® Aesthetic. 
However, the thoughts and opinions are my own. 
Taxes, death (that’s morbid) and wrinkles…apparently all those things are unavoidable.
Or are they?
Obviously I can’t do much for you in the taxes and death department but I can lead you in the right direction with regards to those pesky wrinkles.
I spent an evening with the Sculptra ® Aesthetic team recently and learned about this wonderful and groundbreaking new way to keep the aging process in slow-mo. Sculptura ® Aesthetic is an injectable that helps a patient gradually restore their own collagen which in turn gives your face that more youthful look we all strive for.
I saw some before and after’s and I was shocked at how natural the process looks. I personally don’t want to look like I’ve had anything done so I’m always interested in learning about methods that can “enhance” you not replace you.
I haven’t had a chance to try the treatment as I’m currently breastfeeding (#momlife) but I will definitely seek it out once I stop.
Why this and not other injectables, you ask?
Well, Sculptra ® Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects facial wrinkles. Sculptra ® Aesthetic (injectable poly-L-lactic acid) is indicated for use in people with healthy immune systems as a single regimen for the correction of shallow to deep nasolabial fold contour deficiencies and other facial wrinkles in which deep dermal grid pattern (cross hatch) injection technique is appropriate.
Also, the treatment can last more than two years*.
Pretty amazing!
I encourage you to visit the before & after gallery on their site (SculptraAesthetic.com) to see for yourself the subtleness and natural way this treatment works.
*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. Clinical trial ended at 25 months

Peace Love World + Whole Foods Giveaway

Fact: Being a mom of two is not for the weak…or those that need sleep to function. It’s a balancing act and it requires a lot from you. Not only are you loving, mothering, guiding two children, but you’re also worried about how you feed them and yourself…especially if you’re a breastfeeding mom like me.

I’ve always believed that food is our fuel and the better quality the “fuel” is, the better the “engine” runs. Obviously I’m a big supporter of the organic/natural foods movement and totally anti artificial anything…including genetically modified organisms (GMO). Once you start going down that route it’s tough to go back and frankly, you don’t want to.  Continue reading →

Jogger Pants

Can you guys believe it…this is my last pregnancy post. I’ve made it to the other side although elastic waistbands are still my best friends…at least for the next couple weeks.
I had a tough ordeal with this birth (thankfully the baby is okay) and I’ll share that story in a later post but for now, I’m just grateful and happy to be home with my family. Truth is, love and happiness have healing powers and there’s nowhere else I can get this kind of “fix” than right here in my own home.
As for this look, these non maternity jogger pants were a Godsend the last couple weeks. Not only did they fit my “waist” but they were super comfortable and even a bit chic. Gotta love those jogger pants…perfect for heels, flats and everything in between.

Winter in Miami

Winter in Miami is 100% about layers because the weather here has a slight bi-polar personality. It can be breezy and chill and then hour later, sunny and humid. You’ve got to be able to adjust or else you’ll be looking like a fool sweating profusely and cursing “Damn, when will the weather cool down?!” to anyone that will make eye contact with you. True story.
This is another dress that I received from the Pietro Brunelli team. It’s sleeveless which is obviously a win in my book. The color is perfect for year round wear depending on your accessories. After the baby is born (yep, he’s STILL not here…seriously), I may have the dress altered on the sides to make it more fitted but for now I love the simplicity and versatility of its cut.
Dressing for a tropical winter in Miami can be a little challenging but just remember, soon our “winter” will be gone and we’ll be back to just hot and hotter…so make the most of it while you can.

Vince Dress

I’m trying to make the most of my wardrobe as these last couple days of maternity pass me by…and this Vince dress, which is NOT maternity, has been in pretty heavy rotation. I’ve said it before, a shift dress will do wonders for a preggo body. They’re snug in the right places but still give you the appearance of some sort of shape…and trust me, towards the end, it’s nice to have something that hugs your body and reminds you that you’ve got a waist still…sort of ;)
The dress is a size Medium but it’s got some stretch and has been able to accommodate my belly…even now at my “any day” phase.
