more nsale picks

The nordstrom anniversary sale is finally open to the public, not just card-holders.
Here are my picks!

Franco Sarto booties - my fave wedges and booties are FS. I am wishlistin' this one.  It comes in dark burgundy (what I want!), grey, light tan, black leather.

Louise et Cie Jael shoulder bag - this reminds me of a Chloe-dupe. It's real suede and leather. 

Love, Fire off the shoulder dress - how adorable is this dress in chambray?

BP. plaid square scarf - I was obsessed with these blanket scarfs last winter season. I think they are still BIG this coming season. This sale price can't be beat for sure!

Rebecca minkoff crossbody - it's a Chanel boy bag for a fraction of the cost. As much as I'd like to add a Chanel boy bag in my collection, I cannot seem to swallow spending $3-5K (ouch!) for one bag. This one does not cost that much!

 Louise et Cie Jayde Mary Janes - The blocked heel gives more stability. Then the Mary Jane look just totally got me. It's my fave shoe type (besides the espadrilles).

Maggy London scuba midi dress - adorable!

It's been awhile since I have done a post of Isabel-isms.

My mom: Isabel is the smartest. She remembers everything. 
... a few minutes later... we heard her say to her sibs: I am a genius.

cry room or not?

We are not the family who stays in the cry room during Mass. However, we do take the rambunctious, misbehaving toddlers/babies at the back of the Church.

We used the cry room before... but the move ended up backfiring on us. It's as if the children are given free pass to play or read aloud or even walk around with their bag of cheerios. (FYI, we stopped giving children snacks, even the toddlers... they abused it so that privilege for the babies is gone).

We sometimes go to another late morning Mass at a different parish. If we are running late, which is most of the time when we go there, we end up staying inside the cry room instead of trudging along to one of the side pews.

I am not against cry rooms. They are a good resource for crying babies (obviously), for nursing moms who don't want to feed in the main room or for even babbling children who love to hear their voice so they talk and babble nonstop.

I just think I am worse at managing/watching my children when we are in the cry room. Hubs also think that we are "rewarding" them when we take them there... so we just avoid it at baseline.

I am that person who PLANS her outfits. If there is a special day, I have a new outfit to remember it by. Graduation, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays...  It does not have to be my birthday either.
This is the SAME dress I wore at Daniel's first birthday. 
Things have somewhat changed. I still plan my outfits but I don't have a "new" outfit for every single child's birthday. Priorities change... plus I had to get the house ready for 5 boys to play Nintendo smash brothers.

Yesterday morning, I asked hubs what I should wear.
I know I wanted to wear something nice already for Vigil Mass. I saw hubs wear his green polo... then I saw this old dress!

ha. it still fits me... but you can tell I would have been better off with one size bigger with my current body habitus.
