RED AND WHITE

Dress: Solika  Shoes: Zara  Bag: Fossil

I am madly in love with white clothing, any chance I get I return to white. It may be a white skirt, blouse or dress, anything white I’ll take! Even though I’m chasing 3 kids and will 100% get it dirty by the end of the day I refuse to give up this obsession, it’s just an overall peaceful color that I can’t seem to get enough of. Every time I come across a white dress I instantly fall in love, I think my dreams are made of white dresses 🙂

If you are anything like me and have zero patients of spending hours in front of the mirror a white dress may be you best answer. It is so easy to for summer and the options for styling a white dress is endless, you can either keep it all white or just add accessories in your favorite color and you are good to go. I love the bow sleeves on this Solika dress, a nice detail on a minimal dress.

Much love and Happy Tuesday x

A PINK BIKE RIDE

Skirt: H&M Top: H&M Shoes: Nordstrom  Hat: Etsy

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

RUFFLE MOMENT

Dress: Zara  Sliders: Asos Hat: Lack Of Colors Bag: Sam Edelman

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,

NEVER GET USED TO ANYTHING

Shirt: Zara Skirt: Urban Outfiters Shoes: DSW  Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

There is this quote from a movie I love, Breakfast at Tiffany’s “I’ll never get used to anything. Anybody that does, they might as well be dead.” I love it so much. I love the idea of being reminded to always look around at the simple things in our everyday life and remember to appreciate and not get used to things as they are. I am practicing this a lot lately, the easiest is when I’m with the kids, they are constantly amazed by everything. The way they want to stop and watch the flowers at every garden we pass by or how happy they get from just eating an ice cream is really the best example for me. Thank you for stopping by today guys! Love you all lots x

PINK WALL NAVY DRESS

Dress: Zara Shoes: J. Slides Bag: Sam Edelman

Hey guys! I’m excited about the next few days because the weather man seems to be in a really good mood and is giving us a lot of sunshine this week. Once it warms up I love wearing maxi dresses, they are so comfortable and easy to wear and with 3 kids around, I don’t have more than just a few minutes to get ready in the morning, therefore a one pieces outfit is definitely my go to these days. The last time I wore this dress was last year in Jerusalem (see here), I spent so much time in this beautiful city and wearing this dress again here in New York is reminding me of how much I miss that place.

Now that we have moved houses, we are exploring different areas in our new neighborhood any chance we get, one of the things we love doing is taking different routes every time we walk out just to see what’s around us and get to know our new neighborhood a little better. Try it! You’ll be surprised of the little gems you’ll discover even after you had thought you know your area pretty well! The other day we discovered a cute pink wall right around the corner of our new house, I have a feeling you guys will see a lot of this pink wall 🙂 Lots of love and see you soon, xx

CHERRY BLOSSOMS

 Dress: Rivka Zerbib  Shoes: J. Slides  Hat: Lack Of Colors Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Neck Tie & Bracelett: Accessory Junkie

I still have a few photos to share from the spring cherry blossoms, even though by now most of the flowers are already on the the ground. Cherry blossom season usually lasts about a month, I really wish it would be longer but I guess that is what makes it so special. Now that most of the flowers have fallen, some streets are full of pink petals ans the kids are having so much fun throwing petals into the air, they keep saying “it’s raining flowers” haha.

There’s something so cheerful about this time of year. I am loving the light pink colors of the cherry blossoms, I still find some late blooming trees here and there and I always stop and admire the beauty of the flowers and there light pink color. This color instantly puts me in a good mood and makes me want to get out into the sunshine as much as possible. It’s just an overall pretty shade and I can’t get enough of it right now! My latest purchase is these cute little heels, I can’t wait to pair them with sweet summery dresses! Have a great day friends 🙂 xx

BLUE & WHITE

Shirt: Zara Overalls: Zara Slippers: Asos Bag: Sam Edelman

What is better then white and stripes?! In my book, nothing! I’m a big fan of staple pieces that can be worn in many ways and don’t feel dated after just a season or two. Stripes are definitely one of those staple pieces especially a button down silk blouse. Today marks Israel’s Independence day and this is the look I wore for the day. We just moved houses this week so I am pretty lucky I was able to get a look together among all the packed boxes all over the house. Talking about moving- It really is no joke moving with 3 kids! I remember before we moved to NY 7 months ago, my husband had to leave a month early to take care of the details before the big move and I flew alone with all the kids, I will now say that was easier than packing up a whole house. no joke! living out of suitcases and boxes is not fun at all 🙂

I hope all my Israeli friends had a great day celebrating today, Israel is in my heart and I miss my homeland every single day! Can’t wait until we are back for a visit!! xx

STRIPES & FLOWERS

Top: & Other Stories Skirt: Levi’s Shoes: Urban Outfiters

Hey Guys! I feel like this week has been the longest week ever, I guess it is because I’m packing up as we are moving houses next week. Packing up a house is no joke and although we don’t have that many things since we just moved to NY a few months ago it still seems like an endless task. The kids on the other hand are having the time of their lives with all the boxes around the house, they played hide and seek inside the boxes then they stacked them up into towers and lastly they decorated and colored on the boxes.

My husband snapped these photos a few weeks ago right when the weather stared warming and this top got me right into the spring mood.  I love this top so much, it has a lot of color to it but still feels simple and minimal just the right amount. I hope you guys like it!! happy Weekend! xx

PALE PINK

Dress: Asos Sweater: H&M Boots: Asos

Hey guys! Such a clever title right? couldn’t think of anything better… I hope you all had a great Passover, my little family and I had a pretty amazing holiday and I wouldn’t mind having just one more day of relaxing and family time. What I love most about the holiday is the technology detox- no phone calls, no cameras, no Instagram, no moment to capture just 100% chill. This year I had an extra long holiday since here in NY unlike Israel their is one extra day to the holidays. I was actually nervous about it at first, I thought how much can we keep the kids entertained already?! and what if it rains and we are stuck indoors for days?! It turned out pretty fun actually, we bought some extra toys for the long afternoons and the weather was perfect so we even took a long walk to the beach- 1 hour each way!! My muscles were aching the next morning but filling up a day to keep the kids happy was totally worth the pain. Talking about the beach, I’m so thrilled it is finally warming up, I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am for beach days, I love laying on the sand and watching the kids play, they can literally play for hours at a time! They use up so much energy that after a few hours on the beach they literally eat all the healthy snacks I pack up which makes me a pretty proud mama! The beach really is my happy place, I always tell my husband about my dream of one day living right on the beach then he says he prefers living in the mountains and we get into an endless argument about where is the perfect place to live. haha

I don’t know why I am talking about the beach when I really should be talking about these pretty pink blossoms!! Every where I look the trees are blossoming, the colors are so beautiful, it makes me want to only wear pale pink lately, how pretty is this color?!

Hope you are all having a good week! xx

A WINTER ROUND-UP

I know it is spring already but I was going through my photos and realized I never shared these. We survived our first winter in NY! I was so nervous before moving here, although I visited a few times before but never during the winter. I had people tell me we will not be able to leave the house for months and that we’ll get snow blizzards every other week. Truth is, it wasn’t that bad at all, I actually enjoyed the winter activities with the kids, we had some snow fights (only 2 days of canceled school) and a ski trip to Montage Mountain in PA. I would skip those days when my fingers felt numb after walking outside for 5 minutes or dressing three kids in a million layers, it just takes forever, I literally need an extra 30 minutes to find everyone’s hats, gloves, boots etc. I do see the beauty of a rainy day but I grew up in Israel where 55 degrees is an average winter’s day so heat is definitely my jam. That being said, I am so excited about spring and summer, mostly because I can just throw a tee shirt on the kids and step out (sounds like a far dream as we are still in coats as I’m typing). xx
