IN BLOOM

Zara Floral BlouseA few things.

1. Yes, my hair looks orange. I did dye it. It was time for some gray-be-gone. But I went very similar to my natural color, only a little darker. Kind of a chestnutty brown (seen here). For some reason it looks orange though. A reflection from the flowers maybe? Beats me.

2. I upgraded to the larger Fjallraven Kanken backpack (on sale right now). Since Isla has been using the Mini for preschool, I needed one of my own. I also needed something a little bigger to fit all the stuff required for two kids — double the diapers, snacks, a change of cloths for Theo, burp clothes, toys for two, more snacks, the list goes on. I still use these nylon pouches to keep everything organized and it all fits perfectly in this larger backpack. I still love, love, love this bag, but when we’re venturing through the zoo or to the park I’d rather have something on my back than on my arm.

3. It’s tank top weather! I wore this blouse with a blazer the other day for a meeting — with an adult! — for some work I’ll be doing on the side and I was excited to wear it again now that the weather is nice. I forgot what it’s like to get dressed in clothes you don’t want covered in baby fluids. It was a lovely change.

4. We’re all permanently sick with the plague. It’s never-ending. Fevers, ear infections, horrendous coughs, yucky eyes, sore throats, mastitis, blah, blah, blah. Damn preschool. I’m thankful for short walks and sunshine though.

    Are these shoes comfy? They’re on sale on Zappos right now and I need a flat pair of booties – but I want something that’s well made and responsibly made…thanks! You look adorable by the way! Love your blog :)
