Today is over 80 degrees and I’m already panicking about summer. Even though there are a couple of things that I do love about the hotter months (lighter longer, cold beer, etc), I am just so much more of a Fall/Winter person.  Especially when it comes to fashion.  That said, I do live in LA and in an effort to make myself feel better about the inevitable, I’m thinking I may need to order these.  Light, comfortable and will hopefully give me that cool, just-drank-a-Corona-with-lime internal body temperature.  Or I’ll just sit in the cold AC and enjoy them.


Oscar turns three on Thursday, and just like clock work according to the one parenting book that I may or may not have read, he seems to be dropping his nap.  Instead of freaking out about it (which, had this been happening a few months ago, would have made me lose it due to the lack of time to do anything), I am doing everything I can to embrace what seems like a long day together.  I pick him up from preschool at 12:30 and my new plan is to go straight out for a couple of afternoons instead of anxiously driving home for him to then tell me he wants to “skip it.”  So, now that he’s a big boy, and diaper changes are few and far between (don’t even get me started on how cute his big boy undies are), I may need to downsize my bag even more, and I’m thinking this could work.  Basic and timeless.  And perfect for some cheddar bunnies and my car keys.

I have always been the type of glasses-wearer that doesn’t leave my house in my specs.  I’m basically blind without contacts and to me, glasses were just a means of getting from the bathroom to my bed at night.  That has totally changed now that I am sporting my new glasses – as a matter of fact, I’ve worn them out, all day, at least a few times since I got them.  My husband also got a great pair because at $95 a pop, why the hell not. (I never did end up getting these, and now I’m glad I didn’t!)

Leave it to the guys behind Proenza Schouler to create the baddest iPad case around (and to Because I’m Addicted for blogging about it). The fact that it’s the same price, if not more, than, um, an iPad itself is a whole ‘nother story (although it could perfectly double as a clutch). Ugh, if only Missoni for Target would’ve made a mini-me version to the neoprene laptop case I got my hands on…

Summer is officially here and while that brings high temperatures that I’m not a fan of, it also brings summer wardrobes out in full force. Oscar’s uniform these days consists of light, cotton t-shirts, shorts and his Native shoes but I’m noticing that the little girls around town are all rocking Salt Water sandals.  Unisex in theory, I don’t think they’re very Oscar, but for me, um, yes please.  And the fact that the adult sizes are a few bucks more than the kids only adds to the allure.  These may be the answer to a replacement for my beloved black gladiators that are on their last leg.

I’m not sure what to be more freaked out about – the fact that we’ve been married for five years already (today) or the fact that it’s my birthday – again! Regardless, time is flying, both are big reasons to celebrate and since I’ve wanted these boots for as long as I can remember, I ordered them today to get the party started!  I’ve already paired them with several things in my closet (year round pieces, mind you) and am leaving it up to FedEx to get them here on Monday, just in time to throw them on for dinner with the girls!

We’re headed to Denver tomorrow for my niece’s Bat Mitzvah.  Aside from the significance of the actual event itself (and the fact that I feel super old because she’s already 12), there’s the also extremely important after-party which will be in the form of a pool party.  A couple of things come to mind – wardrobe change (fun) and caftan (ultimate pool party attire).  And because I am obsessed with Missoni (as mentioned here), I was immediately drawn to this.  I already have a little sundress that fits the bill, so I’ll just hope that the upcoming Missoni/Target collaboration spits out something similar. Back to packing.
