Over the Knee Boots and Tweed

Share Button

Yucky is one way of describing how I feel.
Poo is could be another.

Anyway, you get the point. I’m feeling rough, but as a mami you don’t have a choice but to get out of bed and go about your day. In my case, with my main man Little M.
I really didn’t feel like wearing jeans, especially because they may just be a bit snug around the waist (okay, okay! I’ve gained a few and need to lose them ASAP!)
Today was a hang loose kind of day. So I pulled out my comfy knitted blue dress that ties at the waist, black leggings and striped white and black top. It was like being in PJ’s but better looking. I dug out my knee high low heeled boots and tweed blazer and I was good to go. And forget makeup. No way. Just a ponytail and sunnies.
I really didn’t have anywhere to go, but I did take the little guy to get his hair cut then did some food shopping and we made Chilean alfajores, mmm!
Oh and it being love day and all, I wanted to look presentable when the Mr. got home.
And you know when everything in the day seems to go wrong?
Yeah, well, no chance of getting any good pics. First Little M wanted to be held. Then he wanted to be in the pictures. Then he wanted to take the pictures. It was way too much drama and I gave up. These images describe my day perfectly…hazy, blurry, and messy.
But I just had to show you how gorgeous this H&M blazer is and the boots I snagged at TJ Maxx a few months ago. I love the elbow patches and the leather collar on it – perfect to liven up any outfit.
And the boots…oh the boots! First I’m happy I found something that fit around my calves and second they have amazing insoles which make them super comfy for walking around.
So that’s it for me. I’m still pulling out clothes from my boxes and suitcases. So each week I discover something new.
How was your Valentine’s Day? Did you wear anything special?

We hopped on the Capital BikeShare in Alexandria and off we went. Wearing a comfy and stretchy blue dress and sandals,  I finished the look by accessorizing with my new Stella and Dot under $50 Lottie Necklace which had been delivered that {Read More}

Stylish DIY Chalkboard Table for Under $8

Welcome to my first ever DIY post! I’m really proud of this because after realizing that I don’t do much else other than write, photograph and make videos, I needed a hobby — another creative outlet that I could enjoy and have on-going projects for myself. After coming to terms with the fact that we are not going to have new or pretty furniture anytime soon, I thought, “Hey, I can fix these up!” As a child my mom restored some {Read More}

Mourning the Loss of My Shoes After Pregnancy

Take a moment, relax, breathe and close your eyes. Picture opening your closet and seeing your shoes lined up in front of you. See them? All colors and styles. Now, image taking every pair and throwing them away in a big black garbage bag never to grace your feet ever again. Cruel, right? Who would do such a thing?! Let me back up. Shoes. Zápatos. Kicks. No matter how gordita I got, or when my jeans didn’t fit, or my jacket wouldn’t close, {Read More}
