Mini Me Monday: Joy 

Tops: Gifted | Jeans: Gap Kids | Sandals: Old Navy

 

Mondays can be rough. Today was definitely a little rough in our household. We still chose joy. One of the girls favorite songs is singing about a joyful heart and how it is good medicine. So we sang that a lot today! No matter what you may be going through choose joy. I know it isn’t as easy to do as it is to say but it literally is good for you, your body and soul. Having two beautiful girls to laugh with is constant reminder to be happy, everyday. What are some blessings you are happy for?

Orange and a thrifted gem

Welcome!  I want to start by telling you friends to never stop hunting at second hand stores because you never know what kind of gems you will find. Check out this gem of a messenger’s bag that I found from a thrift store back home. It is a real vintage Dooney & Bourke, I verified! It is in great condition externally as it is internally.

Now, let’s talk about the weather conditions. It is pretty humid here unlike northern Texas but nothing like Miami so I knew exactly what I needed. However, I had to break down and wear something orange because it was the only color this dress came in and I really loved the dress. I picked it because it is loose, airy and has a little bit of the culture’s style. Costing me only fourteen dollars without tax made for an easy decision. I also needed the dress. I made the mistake of not checking the weather before packing.

As I sit here and am thinking about needs, I need to make a souvenir list. Today is our last here in San Antonio and we need a few take home mementos. What are some you all collect when traveling? I would love to hear your suggestions!

Happy Friday everyone!

This was Sunday’s look. I was happy to be cozy but also semi dressed up. I am slowly fitting into more and more of my clothes which always makes for a good day. My days have been better since getting ahead of a recent cold but they have been lacking in blogging. I thank you for the get well emails and concerns, ya’ll are the sweetest. I hope your day only gets sweeter!

It’s “hump day”, meaning we are half way through the week folks so hang in there. I’m hanging in there for sure especially with days like today. I met up with some of my friends some who are also mothers and had a brunch play date. It was really nice to simultaneously take breaks from our own children because we were watching each other’s instead. Of course, the womanly adult conversation is always a refreshing blessing!

I love weather like today’s because it is perfect. I like to call it crisp weather. It felt just cool enough to throw on my leather Jacket but warm enough to wear this breezy asymmetrical top underneath. I chose this top because of the stretchy material that made it breastfeeding friendly. Owning a top like this is a must if you breastfeed and like to cover up while doing so. It eliminates your need for a cover. This style of top is also complimenting to that shrinking tummy because its price won’t create any bumps in your finances, check it out!

Have a great rest of the week!
