“On Wednesdays we wear pink!!” Haha! Love this Mean Girls quote from an oldie but goodie!! Who says you can’t go back in time and revisit this teen movie classic!! Or perhaps I’m just searching for any excuse to bust out the pink gear?!! Maybe I’m just craving a spot of color on these gloomy, chilly winter days!! A fun fact about this gorgeous pink coat?! My mom bought it for me and I wore it over my wedding dress when we were taking pictures outside!! I wore little bubblegum pink ballet flats to match, so forgive me if I’m feeling a little partial to this pretty piece!! If only for today, can we suggest that maybe pink is the new black?!!

Twinning with my little pink lady!

These days we are spending more time indoors instead of outdoors but I guess when you have a newborn that’s not such a bad thing. I love spending time with the little sweetheart and life with her is starting to shape into a new kind of normal.

I’m totally falling in love with her little personality. Every morning when she wakes up (or after Alexander jumps in my bed!!) our eyes meet and she flashes me a huge gummy, tongue wagging smile! Her eyes get all watery and red. I look at her scan over my face, watching her trace over each one of my features, then my hairline and finally each eye. We are locked into each others gaze, she coos and bats her eye lashes at me. My heart stops, melts. I’m in heaven. No words have been spoken, everything has been said…

Today I’m wearing my favorite hot pink wrap dress  from my go-to maternity and nursing store Ingrid and Isabel !! They have a huge variety of very pretty and elegant maternity and nursing pieces. This wrap dress is made of the most comfy and stretchy jersey material. It has easy access for breastfeeding, and the cut is style slimming and classic. It comes in several cute colors too!! The hot pink is fun and flirty but I may have to go ahead and get a few more, just to wear on rotation!!! Love love!!

Warm sweaters and cozy socks! My new favorite winter uniform! This combination is a new classic for me. I can switch out the cream socks for various colors or wear alternative shoes and boots to mix it up. The formula is so easy and looks sporty and pulled together. If the climate gets chillier, chocolate tights, nude or black can also be worn to add an extra layer. I adore this Neon beige sweater from PinkBlush !! It’s on Sale right now and is super comfy. The print is very clever and looks like a giant necklace so no need to even try to accessorize. The fringe on the bottom adds length so you could even wear it over leggings or skinny jeans, here I’m wearing it over my tweed shorts. It’s so cute and perfect for the season!! The lighter colors in the socks and sweater make it a softer look on dark and cooler days.

Merry Christmas Everyone!! Family fun on this special day!! Waking up early with the children and hanging out in pajamas all morning is what it’s all about!! We love our Pink Christmas tree too! Adding ornaments that are fun characters that the kids recognize and enjoy makes it extra fun. Our favorites this year are these adorable cartoon Cat Woman and Batman ones! Collecting different and unexpected decorations from all over the world makes for wonderful memories and allows us to revisit some of our favorite moments from the past.

The best part about Christmas is of course-SANTA! -Just kidding! The best part about Christmas is spending it with family. As cheesy as that may sound, it’s the togetherness that makes the magic. I feel so blessed that my wonderful family came from so far away to share this important milestone with us, Angelina’s first Christmas.

Thank you Dad, Kevin, Annabelle, Alexander and Angelina for making this holiday so beautiful. A special thank you to my mother a tremendous help and partner who not only makes it more fun but also makes it look so easy. Love you all.

This year I decided to dress all the kids up in Holiday fun pajamas! They looked so cute in their Christmas inspired little outfits. My lovely plaid flannel tunic from Pinkblush is just the cutest thing! It’s simply adorable for the season, and feels casual and comfy too. The length keeps it versitile. Here i’m wearing it as a dress with my chunky over the knee socks but as soon as it gets chillier outside ill slip it over my denimn skinny jeans. It also comes in a different darker shade of red, and is currently on sale today!! woohoo!!
