Yesterday Poppy turned 9! I can’t quite believe I am the mother of a 9 year old. She loves hearing the story of her actual birth and everytime I detail it for her I feel a pang of sadness that it is so long ago – I don’t ever want to forget that day we welcomed our first baby into the world! She made us all wait till 6.30pm – her approx. time of birth – before we could ‘celebrate properly’! Chocolate fudge cake seemed to work well for that little celebration 😉
We ended up at Shake Shack for burgers – her favorite place for food, but I am more excited about traveling to NYC 2 weeks today, for a mother/daughter trip to continue her celebrations!
It’s the last week of school now, packed with conferences, school visits and lots of fun for them! It’s Memorial Day this weekend too, so we’re planning a very lazy weekend interspersed with various meals out and mini celebrations to welcome the beginning of summer! I must not forget to stream The Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday – one of my favorite events of the year 😉
Here are my outfits from the past couple of days – I seem to be reaching for the jeans at the moment!
Shoes – Vince Claire // Jeans – TopShop Hayden // Top – AllSaints (old)
I love these Vince Claire d’Orsay pumps and the navy snakeskin is now on sale at Nordstrom with 33% off! I am normally a US 8.5 but wear an 8 in these. Be quick there are several sizes available!
There are several versions of the Vince Nina on sale too!
The nude version is even cheaper here with several sizes in stock.
