Hey guys!

It feels like I haven’t been updating you since forever, and I’m missing this place like crazy. I just started fashion blogging last month, and yet I feel so welcomed into the arms of this world, it’s like I’ve always been here. It’s so exciting! Β 

Hope you had a good weekend, and hope you are having a good week so far?

Over here, mothering two boys is leaving me breathlessly in love, too many awww moments! Big brother Sasha is so sweet to the little moonbeam. He is as in love with him as the rest of us. He’s always trying to grab and hold his little brother, to hug him, to kiss him. Problem is, he is none too gentle, clearly ignorant of the finer points of delicate handling of babies! Ha. Although it is such a blessing, parenting is exhausting, and it looks like fashion blogging is fast becoming a release from all the craziness of life here.

Alright, enough about parenting! Did I tell you about the weather these days?? It’s been crazy hot! The Sun – it burns!!!

This is the math.

Hot sun + no electricity (“dumsor”) = NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Awww where art thou, thou sweet cool Harmattan?Β 

Consequently, I’ve been gravitating towards dresses, dresses, and more dresses. Can’t wait to show you some of the looks I’ve been putting together. Today I’m sharing with you this look I had on about a week ago. When I like a favorite item, I tend to wear it to death! I wore this top in this post.

So here I am in one of my current favorite ensembles – this silky top and corduroy pants. A bit of an understated look, eh?

My mom got me these pants when I was fifteen, and they were so big on me I couldn’t wear them until I was eighteen. I had to content myself with longing looks and soft touches and it hanged oh-so-tantalizingly in my closet. Β When they finally fit, every time I needed to wear something quick, I slithered into these!

They are so super-comfy and stylish, love them! I was so thrilled when I tried them on last week and they fit! Looks like I might be back to pre-pregnancy size already :O

Plus I’m so thrilled to finally wear these grey suede ankle boots! Got them in the summer on holiday in Europe while I was still expecting. Nothing like a little extra motivation to stay the fitness path, eh?
