Taylor Swift Style Fox Sweater Outfit

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!

Sunday’s are always family days and we pretty much stay in Alexandria. There is always something going on, so we never need to go very far. This weekend was the 12th Annual King Street Art Festival and the weather was just marvelous! Breezy, sunny with a touch of fall in the air. Alexandria is a historic city with brick sidewalks, cobblestone streets, colorful row homes and more. On the way back to the car I wanted to show the Mr. {Read More}

Back to School Fall Style Session at South Moon Under

You got me. It’s not a back to school fall style session for the kids, but for us, the mamas (and non-mamas too!) By now most of us parents of school age kids can cross back to school shopping off our lists. Now it’s time for OUR back to school shopping! Yes, yes — it’s time to get out and update your fall wardrobe — after all we need to look good for back to school night, and that bake sale {Read More}

Give Your Mama Outfit an Edge with a Skull Print Scarf

Sometimes you just want to add a bit of edginess to a classic look, at least I do. That’s what happened last Thursday when I wore this skull print scarf that I bought at H&M for $3 from their sale bin two weeks ago. I was going on Let’s Talk Live to do my monthly segment and the dress I was going to wear was a bit too snug in the chest area — the good news is that it fits because of the 12 {Read More}

No one purposely sets out to do the opposite — at least I wouldn’t think they do! As a woman and mother, I’ve had my ups and my doooooowns and each time with help and support I get back up, get it sorted and move on.  Many times when we do start anew, we start by changing {Read More}

It’s never EVER easy to get back into working out after an extended ‘leave of absence.’ As mamas we are busy, yes, but depending on the age of our children, our “busy” can vary. For instance, a new mom has a variety of challenges and fills her days differently than a mother with school age kids. You get it.  So when it comes to working out, getting in shape and feeling good the same applies. Fitness classes are NOT a one size fits {Read More}

Date Night Idea: Cirque du Soleil Amaluna at National Harbor

I received complimentary tickets — no other compensation given. Opinions are my own. The lights were turned off and the audience was still as we sat waiting for the start of Amaluna,Cirque du Soleil, when my husband leans in and whispers “Thank you. It was a good idea to get out on our own for a date night” and then of course, made a move for a good old fashioned make out session. Well, ok. Not making out, but you know, a little {Read More}
