Taylor Swift Style Fox Sweater Outfit

Share Button

This weekend the Mr. and I felt as if we were right back in London. It was overcast, light rain and not too cold, not too warm — it was just right. We actually got a bit nostalgic and started talking about our time there “Remember when we’d walk to Chiswick House Grounds on Sunday and have a tea at the café?” or “Remember when we’d go for a long Sunday walk at Hampstead Health and M would run off?”

After all, we spent 6 1/2 years of our life there, it’s impossible to forget!

In true London fashion, we rounded up the niños and headed out for a Sunday walk…a loooong walk. We didn’t have a plan, only to get out of the house and explore our lovely neighborhood. Eventually we ended up at the playground where M ran around and Little L experienced the swing for the first time. So cute!

That morning before heading out I had done a little cleaning at home and had started sorting through clothing. I dug out a few sweaters and was thrilled to be reunited with this Old Navy Taylor Swift style Fox Sweater I had bought (and worn) while pregnant even thought it’s not a maternity piece.

In true London style, I added the mac/trench and black skinny jeans (okay, so they are JEGGINGS, but don’t say anything!) Actually, I probably would have worn wellies if we were in the UK, but this outfit called for my mushroom colored Superga sneakers from The Shoe Hive which you know I LOVE!

Even my hair swore we were back in London — my baby hairs were all over the place and the dampness did me no favors.

I thought the Taylor Swift style fox sweater is a cute and playful look ideal for a family day out and it also meant I could wear the blouse that has been hanging in my closet for months now. Mostly because I doesn’t fit over my hips but under the sweater you couldn’t tell. It really is all about how you style and wear things. I am pretty good at hiding my wide hips and tummy — I thank my mamá for that, she taught me how to dress for my body early on.

In the end our London day out in Alexandria was a success — I personally love overcast days and it certainly brings back beautiful memories of our former British life. I wouldn’t mind a few more days like these.

Shop my look!

Blo Blow Dry Bar Offers Sleek and Sexy Gwyneth Paltrow Style Hair

Received hair services free of charge. Images and opinions my own. Last week I walked into Blo — North America’s first blow dry bar at their Dupont Circle location in Washington, D.C. with dry, frizzy, over hair sprayed and unwashed hair. I had been invited to experience the WASH, BLOW, GO concept (blow out and style) to celebrate the opening of their latest blow dry bar in Gaithersburg, Maryland and I wanted it to be worth my while.

Packing Light: Same Outfit, Three Days

Talk about REAL mama style. Yep. Same outfit, three days (well, not SAME outfit, I did have one other shirt.) Last week I took a last minute trip to New Jersey without my husband or the kids to visit my sister-in-law and my 3 month old niece. My husband was away on a business trip and my mother didn’t have any major plans so I was able to get away and leave the kids with her. I really didn’t want to drive {Read More}

Doing the Trying-To-Fit-Into-Pre-Baby-Jeans Dance (VIDEO)

We’ve all done it. Trying to get into those jeans — pulling them up as far as they go, up over the hips and above the belly button making sure nothing spills out. Sucking in air and then trying to button and zip them. Or telling yourself  “let me sit down and stretch them out a bit” and then doing the trying-as-hard-as-you-can-to-get-into-these-f-ing-jeans dance only to give up and realize, they JUST DON’T FIT. With Fitness on the Run I’ve been {Read More}

Dreaming of a Family Friendly Italian Holiday

*Sponsored content I’m not going to lie, this family hasn’t had a proper vacation in many, many years. We’ve had small trips here and there, but I’m still waiting for our south of France or Italian holiday getaway just as my husband promised years ago when we still lived in the UK. During our trip to London this April,  Villa Pia, a 15th century Italian country manor house, once the summer residence for a Florentine family (yep, just what it says) offered {Read More}

It’s #RealMomStyle Monday here and today is certainly jam packed with mamas! Last week I attended the Hasbro Playskool Playdate here in Washington, D.C. with other area moms of pre-school aged kids. Hasbro was introducing new Sesame Street and Playskool toys for the season with a super hero theme and M went straight to the robots and Mr. Potato head. I was actually super excited about this event because we don’t get many big brand events here in the nation’s capital {Read More}

What to Wear to a Baseball Game (VIDEO)

Last week I took my husband to a Washington Nationals game. I repeat, I took him. To a BASEBALL game. I don’t do baseball. It’s boring, slow and lasts FOREVER. But I wanted to do something he likes and enjoys and so…baseball it was. It was bloody hot that day, 95 degrees or so and super humid. I was a puddle of sweat. Knowing all of this and that we’d be seated for a very long time I had carefully {Read More}
