This year – we are taking a trip to Vegas & Palm Springs- should be interesting…6 months pregnant with a 10 month old in tow…

I love Las Vegas & I have never been to California – we are both really looking forward to the break.

Anticipating the chaos  – I have compiled a list in the name of efficiency and for fear that I will simply forget why I wanted to go to these stores…

First stop – J Crew!

 

This is so adorable – I can see me wanting to wear it for ages!

 

 

I also love these – sadly the black has been off the market for at least a season – I will have to check both the store and a Factory Outlet to see what is still available – there is a nice olive green as well!

 

 

I actually missed getting one of these at Club Monaco and was please to see that I may still be able to get one this way…it’s a Must Have in my book.

And from our friends at Banana Republic – which will be my other major stop…we have some great little accessories! I love this bangle – I hope that it is as attractive in reality!

I suspect that these will look good on me…

 

These sandals are adorable – again Banana Republic…

I could swing either way – this will depend on the actual weight when we try them on..once again – courtesy of our friends at Banana Republic…

Other than this – I will be shopping for the little ones & trying to get some much needed rest at the resort.

I also need to get a bathing suit & some shorts – we’re not going to worry about that too much though.

 

 

I should not be shopping!!! I should not be shopping! I should not be shopping!

Who am I kidding?

I just can’t resist – I am still in maternity gear…but there are just some things that look too gorgeous to pass up!!! If you are up for a little color…have a look at these!!!

Nancy Gonzalez – http://www.vivre.com – Love everything about this bag!!!!

Vera Wang – http://www.vivre.com – What’s not to love?

also at http://www.vivre.com

Just a couple of things to add to the summer wardrobe…

I am also interested in the Oscar de la Renta shoes I have been seeing lately…although I am keeping clear of serious heels for the time being – it’s fun to look.

On another note – today I am working on the crib linen design for my little guy…

This is the textile – we’ll see how it works out…

I think it will be gorgeous!!!

 

Speaking of which…do you have any feelings about brown as a color for kids rooms?

I am bored with all of the brown on the market for kids…it’s just so dull!!!

I am sorry but brown textiles are just the end of the world for me…it really doesn’t get any worse…I understand brown as a color in leather or wood or some natural product – like a chocolate brown silk area rug (maybe?)

….but seriously – I have never been a fan of the brown/blue or brown/pink combinations..

brown fabric – it even sounds sad…like a grand woven depression if you ask me.

ugh.

 

 

So, I actually started the blog and was in the process of planning the Great Return To The Working World when LO AND BEHOLD – we are pregnant again!!!!  After much excitement – it seems we have a plan. Along with all of the beautiful things – I imagine that we will be adding items for our new little addition as we start the research and prepare for our new baby!

In the interim – we have to finish the nursery for our first little bundle of joy (who continues to grow at the most incredible speed!!!!?????) and since to the munchkins will be sharing…we will be keeping the colors we started with and adding yellow to the existing blue and green…it should be gorgeous!!!

I also need to get my dress closet in order over the next 3 weeks – the inspiration for the Dolce & Gabbana Closet Experience will follow as well….stay tuned…

 

Somewhere between Kelly Wearstler & Ralph Lauren (with his Mayfair Collection) I think there is an ultimate room waiting to happen…The much maligned Wearstler is really at her best with her Hermes inspired color pallette & I just love the black!

Thanks for visiting my page – I have been meaning to do this for a very long time.  

My little baby boy is 9 months old today!  I can hardly believe it…

I go back to work in about 3 months – so, I made a point of starting before things get hectic again!  I will be posting pictures of our renovation in progress over the next few weeks…as well as baptism party images & wardrobe item updates that I would love for the return to office life.

I feel like something very exciting is about to happen…when it does – I will let you know! 

In the interim – here are some of the cake inspiration images I have collected so far for the Christening Party…

These are from April Reed – just gorgeous!

I would be surprised if it gets much better than this!
