I didn’t listen.  They told me not to wear white.  “You’re a new mom.  Moms just can’t wear white.”  I despised this statement.  I thought to myself, “I can rock white.  Just because I’m a mom, now I can’t wear white?  But I like white.  Who cares what they say.  I’m going to be a rebel and do it anyway.”  So I flounced around in ivory lace skirts and more recently in this winter white blazer.  Well, I’m sad to say, everyone was right.  This white blazer lasted no more than an hour on our leisurely Saturday afternoon.  I won’t go into details, but you can probably imagine a scenario or two that could have happened to my white blazer.  The only upside was that I got to (had to) buy a new sweater to wear for the rest of the day.  The take away from this experience: I am not going to stop wearing white.  However, I will most likely save my white wearing days for those when I am back in the office with no little munchkins around.

It’s starting to get chilly here in New York City, and I am getting super excited for a little mini vacay we are taking to Florida on Wednesday!  The weather is looking nice and warm for our trip, and I have a fresh mani/pedi for the occasion (thanks hubby for watching Nico so I could enjoy 90 minutes of bliss).  It’s time to get packin’ over here.

Hope you all enjoy the week!

A View From Weehawken

IMG_6496

Last Saturday we made the trek out to Weehawken, New Jersey for a good friend’s housewarming party.  I have driven through the Lincoln Tunnel many times, and have looked up at the houses up in the cliffs imagining the stunning views they must have of Manhattan.  Well, on Saturday I no longer had to imagine as I saw this view for myself!  WOW.  We spent tons of time hanging out on this ledge taking photos before joining the housewarming festivities…which were also a ton of fun by the way!  Congrats to my friends on their new digs and their fabulous view!

Last night we held our final screening for our Race to the Oscars.  We saw the Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts program!  Most people don’t get a chance to see the films in this category, so I always feel like I have an upper hand when guessing the winner.  I am always impressed by the level of talent, and this year was no disappointment.

If you haven’t already entered to win my giveaway, you have two more days to score these amazing stud earrings from Flair Accessories!
