I absolutely cannot wrap my head around the thought that we are nearly at the end of summer, didn’t it just start a second ago?! I feel like I need so many more beach days, water fights with the kids and just lazy days in the back yard. Every time I spend a few hours at the beach I cannot understand why I don’t come here every day, the kids are just drawn to that salty air and can play at the beach for hours at a time. Lishai is at that fearless age where she will literally run straight towards the water and get completely wet so this big blow up ball was a great distraction for her, she had such a blast bouncing on top of it and playing together with Eitan. I love summer with these sweeties!
Back in Israel we didn’t live close to the beach at all, a trip to the beach was kind of a big deal for us and I feel lucky to live so close to the ocean now. Of course with the water comes the crazy humidity which i would definitely give away in a second, it’s just too sticky for me, it reminds me of Tel Aviv while I am more of a Jerusalem girl. The humidity is really unnecessary in my book, I rather leave the stickiness during summer to water melon and ice cream. Hope you guys have the best end of summer and thanks for stopping by! xx

Is there anything more cheerful than yellow? I feel instantly happy when I see this color and although I don’t wear it that often, I truly believe the way I dress and the colors I choose will effect my mood that day.
I think a great way to start your day before getting dressed is deciding what kind of day you are aiming for. If you are planning a low key, relaxed kind of day choose soft colors and easy silhouette, (this is what outdoor pajama sets were made for, wink). If you woke up feeling like a boss and want to get out there and conquer the world then now would be the best time to pull out those killer heels and go for a sophisticated look. At first this will seem kinda stupid but once you stick to focusing your mind towards the day you are going to have, unconsciously your day will be more successful. Trust me I’ve tried it, it works!
last Thursday I found myself having a “yellow kind of day” – quite literally I must add. In the morning I put on my yellow dress, in the afternoon I had coffee in a yellow mug and towards the evening we headed out to a yellow pinwheel exhibition in Prospect Park in Brooklyn where we all coordinated in yellow outfits. As we walked around the park I felt this color was projecting positive energy to the world and I loved it, even the shower of rain that got us all soaked to our toes didn’t ruin this great day. xx

One thing I am loving this summer other than the heat is the beautiful blooming flowers. Are you guys seeing the blooming hydrangeas all over? It’s absolutely incredible! The colors are just so pretty, I can’t get enough of them especially the ombre’ ones!
Light summer skirts are my thing when it gets hot and sticky outside, Asos have such a wide selection of skirts in different cuts and styles. I’m loving the asymmetrical skirts but what got me at this skirt is the nautical vibe of blue and stripes. Forgive me for my wrinkled look, I am not a big fan of ironing my clothes like normal people should do. I suppose it adds some character to my look, don’t you think?
Have a great week my friends! xx

If you are following on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed the pink bike and I am no less than obsessed with them. This bike brings a smile to my face just because I’m kind of proud of myself for seeing a vision I had in my head come to life in just a few short hours. Originally, this bike was just a boring black bike and I spray painted it to this beautiful champagne pink shade that looks even more beautiful in reality. I really love the result and I’m dreaming of filling up the basket with pretty flowers and riding around in sweet summer dresses. I guess I love bikes so much because it brings back so many memories of my childhood, my whole life I’ve lived on a Moshav (Israeli country side) and riding a bike everywhere was part of life + my mom is Dutch so I guess bike riding is in my blood.
Last Sunday morning we all got on the bike just for fun, we didn’t actually ride the bike since I don’t have safe kid seats but the boys were pretty excited just to sit on the bike and rock from side to side pretending they are on a boat. I think I should go ahead and buy a kid seat so I can take the kids on proper bike rides in the park, that would be such a fun activity!
Have a lovely day guys! xx

Hey hey, I hope you all had a great weekend! Last week was a long holiday week full of family and good food, It was lovely and I am now ready to get back on schedule for a few weeks before the kids are off for summer break.
When the sun calls, a good summer dress is in order, am I right? I am loving the ruffles we are seeing everywhere this season, they are so cute and feminine. Just yesterday I was wearing a cute ruffled sleeve top I found at H&M for only $15. (You can see it on my Instagram while I was riding my bike with the kids).
I love the combination of the gingham and ruffles on this dress, I’ve always loved dresses, ever since I can remember. I’ve also always been somewhat of a dreamer, always letting an outfit take me to different places. That’s one of the reasons why I love fashion so much, it can transport you even if you’re not heading anywhere, I literally feel like I am in another place depending on what I am wearing. This dress takes me to picnics on the grass on those long summer afternoons, where does a pretty summer dress take you? xx,
