A little Romanian

So, this is a blouse my grandpa had brought from Romania for me when I was I think 10 or so. Somehow I can still wear it as a 3/4 sleeve crop top. Just added a tight red tube top underneath to help with the cropness. I think the blouse is a perfect match to these adorable clogs. When I saw these on the clearance rack in my size! I had to get them. I mean where would you ever find a pair like these? Loved it when my son screamed 'Mommy who put these rasberries on your shoes?' Cut off distressed jean shorts contrast with the sweetness of the top and the shoes. Kept jewelry to a minimum with heart loop silver earings and evil eye anklet and a watch.  It was one of those rare days where I actually wore the same outfit all day!

Blouse - gift from Grandpa from Romania
Red tube top - super old from a store that is no longer in business
Cut off shorts - TJ Maxx
Clogs - Anthropologie (of course!)
Heart loop earings - baby phat from Macy's
Anklet - from Turkey
Watch - Bulova

Today's Activities: Went to a friend's house for a water table playdate. Took the kids in swim suits and allowed them to get and dirty as they pleased. Just hosed and dried and changed them into PJs before coming home all ready for naps. During nap, had to have my stepdad come over so I can take my car to a shop then have him and my mom come over couple hours later to drop us off at the car shop. Just a simple task of taking my car in to get checked is an absolute nightmare when you have kids. Rushed to our second playdate afterwards. Met this mommy on our plane ride from Turkey to San Diego. She is Turkish as well, her husband is Italian and they just moved to SD from London. Their 5 year old daughter is trilangual. Kids had a great time playing with her. Came home late just in time for dinner (good thing I cook dinner during nap times!). Costco tilapia was a big hit with the kids. Had a fun bath time before bed.


  1. Those clogs are just adorable! If there was an Anthropologie store in Australia I'd be in trouble! Thanks for the link too. My babies are 19 months apart so you know how I'm feeling!! :)

  2. Oh very lovely! Adore the shorter top over the longer top! And those shoes are just to die for!

  3. The shoes are so daughter would have taken them from me


Love to hear your thoughts...
