I shot several looks over the summer and I finally have the time and the eyeball stamina to spend some time in front of the laptop and get things caught up around here. Rosie (our new puppy) has finally -almost- stopped peeing on our brand new white leather sofa (insert knife emoji here), she’s pooping 98% of the time on the pipi pad (yay!), and she’s having fewer accidents these days. I am one proud momma! If this is difficult, I can’t begin to imagine what it’s like to potty train a HUMAN BEING, people. Props to all the moms out there. G -the husband- and I broke into praise and applause last week when Rosie spontaneously pee’d on the pipi pad while we were entertaining guests. There were even high-fives exchanged like total nerds! People looked at us like we were BATSHIT CRAZY. Oh, well. This parenting thing is hella hard and we haven’t even gotten started with he real thing yet. By the way, what in the world is up with people constantly asking us when we’re going to start making babies? I mean, can I please enjoy my husband for some time before we throw a baby in the mix and want to kill each other as a result of sleep deprivation and stress? G’s favorite answer, which I find so amusing, is saying, “What time is it now?” while he looks at his watch and pulls me closer while rubbing my arm or leg. The person asking either laughs and gets the point or cringes and changes the subject as they look away. #RUDE, I’m telling ya’.
I spent the entire summer in flowy garments, shorts, crop tops, and open, comfortable shoes. G abhors Birkenstocks and gladiator sandals claiming they make girls’ feet look “manish.” I like these specific Birkens because of the feminine floral print and the pastel color and you can get them on sale now at Nordstrom here. I got this braided headband at Coral Gables festival a few years ago and I wish I had the tag to tag the artist. She had the cutest hair accessories! I scored this powder-blue faux suede crossbody at Marshalls for less than $20 (#WINNING) and it’s been my go-to bag of #SUMMER16.
