Lace Skirt on Repeat

IMG_1082_Layers_v1

This little lace skirt has become a staple in my wardrobe lately as I’m loving winter white, and it makes me feel better to not have to wear maternity jeans or yoga pants all the time.  Again, this outfit repurposes a lot of older outfits in my closet.  I’m looking forward to the day when I can start buying some new items back in my “normal” size, but for now, it’s been fun to recreate new outfits out of items I already own.

These photos were taken last Friday after a little Mommy Hour sesh at Bar Chord in Ditmas Park with my fellow new moms in the neighborhood.  Yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to take your baby to a bar in Brooklyn…so long as you go before the regular patrons get out of work for regular happy hour time.  Haha.  It was a beautiful day, and their back garden was open, so a group of us got together for some drinks, snacks, baby talk, and funny stories.  I’m very fortunate to have met these wonderful ladies and their adorable babies, and looking forward to more adventures to come as they grow.

Have a happy one ya’ll!

XO,

Romantic Chambray

This past weekend, I headed back down to Maryland for my cousin, Alex’s, bridal shower!  The hubs and I headed down on Friday night and stayed with our other cousins, Marisa (Alex’s sister) and Brian at their house back in the woods of Annapolis.  They recently built a fire pit in their backyard, and with all the beautiful foliage, I thought it created a beautiful backdrop.

I have been wanting to wear the new casual chambray button down that I purchased, and decided to pair it with this ivory tulle skirt and ivory sheer tights to give it a more romantic and dressy feel for the bridal shower.  These booties were actually a gift from my Mom, who had originally purchased them for herself and decided she didn’t think she could rock them.  I gladly took them off her hands. 🙂  Thanks Mom!

Speaking of my Mom…my Mom & Dad are celebrating their Golden Anniversary today!  29 years on the 29th!  I am so happy for them, and I wish them an amazing day with many more happy years to come!  Love you.

And in other news…we are hunkered down in our Brooklyn abode staying safe from Hurricane Sandy.  I haven’t seen too much rain, but there is definitely a lot of wind.  We are prepared in case the power goes out (but I am hoping that it doesn’t.)  I have seen tons of pictures of the wrath of Sandy and all the flooding caused so far.  Hope everyone on the East Coast is staying safe!
