Back to school!

So we were out there at 6.40am this morning in the dark, waiting for the bus for 1st grade!  Fortunately Poppy was very excited and so wasn’t too grumpy at the early morning routine but gosh I’m certainly not used to it!  Did not appreciate the 5.45am alarm bell this morning.  Of course the bus was late so goodness knows what time she will actually be delivered home today – a bit chaotic with a new bus driver and new bus routes this year.

Hugh has started pre-K too so a big day for us all.  To celebrate the start of a new school year we took them out for lunch yesterday.  Now I have to say we took them to one of my favorite lunch locations – Pizze Fritte – and yes Poppy doesn’t like pizza – so I guess it was a tad unfair, but I also claimed the lunch as my early birthday lunch before Friday – hence the 2 glasses of prosecco…at least Poppy enjoyed her fries:) I wore my Zara butterfly top and blue pants, which can’t be seen here but needless to say I felt very colorful!  Notice how they put families with noisy children in the far corner away from the other patrons…or maybe that table is saved for families with noisy mothers?

This week is hopefully our last week of work at the house…just a few loose ends to finish up and cleaning to do – so bear with me while my morning photos are still so dark and grainy – hopefully next week we’ll be back up in our beautiful, bright bedroom thanks to our new windows!

Today I’m wearing my fab Zara cargo pants, pink Zara linen t-shirt from the sale, AllSaints Itat shrug and Tory Burch pink Eddie flats.  Feeling very comfy on a drizzly Atlanta day.

    I love those trousers. Every time I go to Zara in London though I never seem to find anything I like – or rather nothing that will fit me. All their clothes look like they’re made for very slim women.

    I find it much easier to shop online with them but as I have discovered their online CS is not great – I have been spoiled with Boden. These pants are actually on the large size but their sizing is all over with all their items – really need to try things on to be certain! The arms of their jackets are definitely skinny!

      Hi Claire – thanks so much for reading and commenting! I will check out your blog! I am really enjoying it and have met some fabulous people in the blogging community. Zara has quickly become a favorite of mine but they need to improve their CS for online shopping – it can be a nightmare! x

    I can’t believe you have to get the school bus so early!!! 6.40am is still sleep time in our house! Hope Poppy and Hugh enjoyed their respective first days! Emma x ps Poppy’s Mini Boden rucksack has reminded me I got one for my daughter for her birthday – no idea where I’ve put it and it’s her birthday today!! Oh well an extra pressie when we get back from our holidays!
