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.
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??
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.
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.
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 →
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 →
