Following this photo that Colette insisted on being in (in her PJs) she thought it would be fun to have her own photo shoot like mommy. She’s since perfected the “rockstar” pose.

unnamed-2unnamed-13I soaked in being at the beach these past couple of days.  I said goodbye to our beach house until next Summer (which always makes me cry) and went to our favorite haunts for a final hoorah (Fantasy Island, the water park, ice cream from Windmill and the list goes on).  I also took the past couple of nights as an opportunity to layer something on other than a sweatshirt.  I love the juxtaposition of a super casual look with something a little dressier (which is another reason why I’m obsessing over the bomber trend this season paired with an evening gown).  Here I paired a tank and cut-off shorts with sneakers and a cotton blazer.  There’s nothing formal about this but it’s just that little unexpected touch–which I’m into.

Tank: Monrow/ Cut-offs: Gap (these boyfriend shorts came cuffed and I used my handy work to make them into cut-offs–similar ones here )/ Blazer: J.Crew (similar here)/ Sneakers: Adidas (similar here)
