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.

Having bangs/fringe can be a lot of work — after all, they seem to have a life of their own! However if cut and styled right, the look is fresh, edgy and dramatic. Every morning I wake up looking like this: Hmm? The White Snake/80’s Hair Band look has NO place today! See my latest video on how to style, maintain (or tame!) and trim your bangs for a fresh, chic look.  P.S. as a bonus you get a mini Spanish {Read More}

I received a gift card to shop the Renovation Sale. All items selected and styled by me!  — For those of you in the Washington, D.C. area, you know how much we value our small businesses. Here in Alexandria I am spoiled for choice with boutiques, cafés, fitness facilities — all owned and operated by locals. Having grown up in a mall (most of us did, that’s how it was) “shopping small” wasn’t even on the radar. In fact, I {Read More}

I am a part of the PBS Kids VIP program and was given credit to shop the Overstock Kid Zone.  In this house we have something I call “Birthday Burnout.” All of our birthdays are around the busiest times of the year — December and January. Mine is on December 19th. Let’s just leave it at that. Then comes Jesus’s birthday, which just leaves everyone knackered. After the new year we celebrate our wedding anniversary on January 7th, followed by my son’s birthday on {Read More}

Before the holidays I asked friend, personal wardrobe consultant and owner of Style Speaks, Cathy Starnes to help me get started on my closet organization. I found that despite cleaning and sorting, I  wasn’t exactly getting rid of stuff which is what I really needed to do. So I asked her to help me and we decided to put together a video on how to organize your closet and help others who have a hard time letting go of stuff. It’s scary {Read More}

Slimming and Stylish Lyssé Pieces Every Woman Needs

I worked with Lyssé on a sponsored Instagram only campaign and items were sent for me to style. This post is not sponsored or required. As women we compare ourselves to other women, something I stopped doing because it only makes you bitter and there is nothing you can do about it. There will always be someone prettier, smarter, better dressed, thinner, taller than you, etc. etc. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t fabulous ourselves.

This post comes to you after being in pj’s for an entire day and just lounging around the house with the husband and kids. Christmas Day and Boxing Day were sunny and gorgeous here in the DC area and nearly 50 degrees. We took a walk around Jones Point in Alexandria and let the kids run it out. It was an easy going day — barely any makeup, dry shampoo to get my hair looking somewhat decent and a simple, easy yet {Read More}
