Blue lace applique sweater

This lace appliqué sweater is one of the very few J.Crew items I own, but it sure paid for itself considering how many times I’ve worn it. It’s one of those items that I wear both to the office and outside the office. I always say that I try to get clothing that will serve both purposes but the reality is that 90% of what I wear on my off days are not office appropriate haha! Not in a ‘these clothes are too revealing’ kind of way, but simply because I love wearing jeans the most and I cannot wear them at my job.

We are still recuperating from a three day water park trip last weekend… Man, is it hard to get up in the morning the first day back and go back to the routine. Especially after having been at a water park which tires you out so much! So when we got back on Sunday, Robert asked Leo (our 5 year old) what he liked the most about the trip and he said ‘sleeping’ 🙂 So then, we’re asking him why ‘sleeping’ and his response was ‘because our family was sleeping in the same room and I could snuggle with mommy'(!!). Wow, that surprised me but then knowing how sensitive he is, I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. But just shows you the little things that kids cherish the most… in this case it wasn’t even the water park (which was a lot of fun by the way), but the fact that we were all together, even at night, sleeping in the same hotel room. Melted my heart!

Anywho, I am so ready for spring! February is my least favorite month so I am glad that’s over and now here’s hoping that March will finally bring warmer weather.

Wearing: Linea Paolo pom pom shoes (they also come in black!); J.Crew sweater (old, similar herehere and here); Anine Bing jeans (old, similar here and here).
