Guess who is missing the beach right about now? I mean...it's not like I don't like biting, 30 degree winds, it's just tha-- Right. The drastic change from a freeing beach week to waaay too much "indoor family time" is driving the boys and I nuts. NUTS! And we're only half unpacked, so the house looks as if a bomb has dropped. Luckily, our new nanny started this week. I say "luckily" because I like to break 'em in early. I just wish I had a picture of her face when she first stepped in the door. There's a good chance she thought we were hoarders. It's a fine line, though. You want just enough crazy to keep expectations low, but not enough crazy to scare them off for good. The just-got-home-from-a-trip level of disaster seems to toe that line pretty well. We'll see.
Here are a few Fun Friday links that I've been storing up to share...
The Sartorialist wanted to know if anyone was thinking about turtlenecks. Ahhhh Scott. You sly dog you. I'm always thinking about turtlenecks. [bats eyelashes]
Hot mama Lena from Quality Rivets recently styled her plaid pajama bottoms and looked AWESOME. For realz.
Refinery 29 styled a windbreaker three surprisingly glamorous ways. And OK: I think they cheated by using an insanely gorgeous Stella McCartney for Adidas windbreaker (*cough $500 *cough)...but still. I'm 95% sure you could use a regular windbreaker and it would still work, more or less. I like this one.
We've been talking about ankle boots, and whether or not curvy, short Mamas can pull them off. Have you seen this picture of Drew Barrymore in her ankle boots and skinnies? The girl is all curves and gorgeousness, and she pulls them off OK. However, the black bootie does shorten her leg a bit. I'll bet that a slightly lighter ankle boot would look great (or a slightly darker jean). Perhaps that's the key?
Reader Julie picked up this adorable wrap cardigan / cape at Nordstroms and swears by it for both pregnancy and nursing. It's now on sale for $39! Thanks, Julie!
Lastly, how cute is Pax's little Superman tee? It comes with an attached cape. The cape just velcros on/off at the shoulders. He has been wearing it EVERY DAY. I now wish that I had stocked up (it's just a Target tee, folks). Superman appears to be sold out online, but Target has a whole line of cape tees. Bam Pow is my favorite.
