A New York Minute

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Tomorrow we are off to New York City!!  I love the East Coast in the Fall and NYC is one of my favorite cities to visit.  I love walking around all day taking in all the hustle and bustle.  This will be our first time flying with Carlota and I’m excited and nervous at the same time.  We’ll be traveling to Spain for the holidays so this will be good practice for that lengthy flight.  Do any of you mamas have any tips or tricks for traveling with a 7 month old?  I’m worried about how many things we will need to pack and travel with.  Days of only a carry-on are long gone.

The warmer LA weather called for white jeans and a stripped tank this past weekend.  I’m looking forward to sweater and layering weather since it’s been 80 degrees in LA these past few weeks.  I’ll finally be able to pull out some of my fall looks.

This New York trip will be very different from my previous visits there, but I’m sure it will be very special.  If you have any recommendations please share!!

Off the shoulder

The off the shoulder trend has been all the rage this summer.  There is just something so feminine about showing your decollete and shoulders.  When I saw this denim ruffle off the shoulder dress I knew this was  how I wanted to rock this trend.  With my changing postpartum body this dress finds the right areas to emphasize.  I am slowly learning to be more comfortable and confident in my new skin.  Choosing the right style, cut and fit for your figure is so important.  Most women have areas of their body they are more confident with and finding clothing that flaunts those areas are keys to successful dressing.

I added my favorite pop of blue with my accessories.  This clutch and these espadrilles have been on major repeat this summer.  I find that warmer weather calls for color and LA has been a scorcher this year.

I just realized, in 2 days With Love Andrea will be a year old.  I can’t believe how quickly time has flown.  This blog has been such a fun outlet for me and I can’t thank you enough for your support.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!  There is always so much to be thankful and grateful for and I love that we have a day where we can celebrate this.

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday.  I love the traditional Thanksgiving meal…and anyone who knows me, knows that food is always one of my top priorities.  Today I am so appreciative for my family and friends.  I feel so lucky to be doing what I love with my loving husband who is my best friend.  I have wonderful supportive parents who have always supported and encouraged me to dream big.  Life may not be perfect and there are always things we wish we could have but lets remember to be happy with the blessings we have.

I’m wearing one of my favorite Rails plaid shirts.  I love the colors and the the inner lining.  The quality of their plaid shirts are amazing and when not pregnant the fit is perfect.  Since I can barely do up the shirt with my growing bump I opted to wear it with a simple gray tank.  They are having their Black Friday sales online starting Friday with 30% off everything so be sure to check it out!!

We are relaxing this weekend at the Bacara Resort and Spa and can’t get enough of the beautiful scenery.  As much as I am ready for fall weather, Southern California is just not cooperating.  I was happy though that this weekend was in the 90’s since we were spending it by the pool and beach.  One last time for a tan before the colder weather comes in.

Our Boston terrier loves the beach and we were so happy to bring him along with us.  Most beaches don’t allow dogs but this one does.  We spent the morning running along the sand and playing with our little pup.  These are always very special memories for me and am so happy to spend them with my family.  We can’t wait until our little growing munchkin will be able to join us as well.

With Love….

Living in Los Angeles is a dream come true. There is the beach, mountains, fabulous weather…what more can you ask for. The two things I miss most about my home in Toronto is my Family and fall. I love that time of year when the leaves are changing and the air is crisp. We don’t really get this in Los Angeles. I went home this past weekend to visit with my family. It was a quick trip for my cousins wedding.   I was looking forward to sweater weather, since we have been having a heat wave in LA. It was pretty hot in Toronto but thankfully the leaves were already starting to change color. My family and I went for a night out on Main Street in Unionville.  Such a cute place to visit, especially this time of year.

I kept my look simple with a graphic tee and jeans, but added some layers with a scarf and jacket.

With Love…
