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!

Portable Fun with Playskool Pop-Up Shape Sorter

It’s been a long summer. In fact, too long. My son’s last day of kindergarten was June 2nd! Take a few moments to ponder that one. Keeping a 6 year old and a very stubborn and “it’s my way or no way” 2 1/2 year old has not been an easy task. My kids and I played (and searched for pieces!) with the Pop Up Shape Sorter as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars and Playskool #PlayskoolCrew Toys in this house {Read More}

15 Most Influential Mom Fashion and Beauty Bloggers

This blog began in January 2012 after blogging as my son for two years at Mummy’s Busy World (no longer online.) I was scared to be me, especially if I was going to show real style, fashion and beauty as a mamá. I hadn’t seen much by way of mom fashion bloggers so I wasn’t sure where to start. I thought fashion and beauty blogging was for the thin, under 30 and childless — at least that’s what it seemed like. {Read More}
