This midsummer was spent mostly at home. Since we just came back from Greece I felt like I needed some time at home. Me and the kids have had a great time together. On Friday we visited my fathers cabin. I drove myself, which is something that never happens. I should really drive more. I keep promising myself to just do it and practice, but somehow I always come up with an excuse when it comes to it.

The rest of the weekend was spent outdoors, hanging with friends, baking chocolate cake, potty training, listening to podcasts, cleaning out my closet, paying bills and doing the usual. Being alone with the kids does me good every time. I’m much more present. I don’t try to do a million things and I really take time to just be and enjoy.

This look is me in a nutshell (as you already know by now). I’m actually trying to find a new leather jacket. This one is still perfect but I want to find one that’s a little lighter. I’ve already been drooling after one from Filippa K, but I’m thinking I should stick to this classic biker model after all. We’ll see if I dare to drag both kids along and drop by my favorite shops. Might kill the mood but I’m up for the challenge!

All of a sudden I’ve become more into wearing two pieces over dresses. Might have something to do with me breastfeeding, but I also enjoy having more building blocks to work with while getting dressed. This lace skirt is something I spontaneously bought a while ago. Even though it’s rather dressy I’ve been wearing it lots. I’ve actually wore it to the playground as well. Paired with a simple linen tank top and flat sandals it becomes less dressy and perfect for a playdate turned into lunch date. Since my life is more or less all about going to the park and hanging out with children, I want to be able to dress however I feel like without saving my favorites for special occasions only. Dressing according to my mood is all that matters. Why save all those wardrobe treasures for who knows when? Luckily the laundry machine was invented ;).
