Yep, as the weather in NYC continues to be frigid, cold, and unbearable, my mind is still stuck in Puerto Rico… so why not finish off the week strong with yet another post on summer clothes? This time, for little girls! And this outfit is my absolute FAVORITE spring dress!
This traditional Mexican puebla dress was found on the incredible website Superfussy. The site includes some of my favorite kids clothing — harem pants, chikan kurtas, and puebla dresses. And sold at reasonable prices!
The dresses come in four colors (white, purple, black, and green) for just $35 each. So why not get one for a little girl this year? And one for a friend, too?
Whole look with amber necklace.
The mexican puebla dress is handmade in Mexico of a cotton polyester mix AND can be machine washed! Superfussy also sells super cute Peasant dresses for adults if you feel like being super cool and matching with the little girl! Have a great weekend! And back to Winter here in NYC….

Totally in love with my beachwear from Surf Bazaar! Their tanks, tees, and tunics are my beach and summer go-tos (FYI- we just got back from a great vaca in Puerto Rico), and now they have created a pant that is beyond amazing. And these aren’t just your typical pants — they are the perfectly combined craziness of (1) neon (2) drop crotch (3) embroidered cutouts. It is every trend in ONE pant — Hallelujah!
Hola from Puerto Rico! Today is our last morning in tropical paradise before we head back to Nueva Yorka. We have been here for the past 5 days on a family vacation with the Natori Seniors. And what a perfect time we have had! I know, SUPER annoying to the (cold and snowy) New Yorkers (sorry!)…but really, it has truly been a great escape! Here are some pictures of our trip! Enjoy!
Looking up at the sky never made me so happy.
Yep, another Gwyneth Paltrow recipe. I can’t help myself!!!! I love her recipes and ingredients so much!!! Plus if I eat like her, I will look like her, right? These cookies are the bomb (yep, used that word, say what 2003). They are dense, sweet, healthy, and hit-the-spot. They are more like a granola bar than a cookie. But healthy snack trumps oreos anyday.
I am craving the nights where I don’t have to wear slippers, sweatpants, long tees, sweatshirts, and robes to bed! I am so sick of this Winter, specifically the cold! And hopefully soon, I can wear just a sleepshirt to bed, and be warm enough. SOON knock on wood. I am super excited about wearing the Josie Spicy Essentials Sleepshirt — and it is exactly that — spicy AND essential.
New nut butter obsession, thank you very much! Big Spoon Roasters is so good that you want to use a big spoon (get it?) and eat it all up. Big Spoon Roasters makes handcrafted nut butters from scratch in Durham, North Carolina. If anyone knows how to work with nuts, it is Southerners. They create the nut butters from nuts and honeys from local and like-minded farmers.
New York finally got a whiff of Spring yesterday! The birds sang, the sun glistened, it reached a whopping 43 degrees, and daffodils emerged (in bodegas, but still…..) Spring, colors, chirps, here we come! Goes hand in hand with a dollop of bright orange goodness to kick start your salad! Here is a recipe for the perfect Japanese carrot ginger dressing. Who knew a dressing could taste so delicious? Must try! (but be careful, it kinda looks like soup. It is not soup).
Since winter doesn’t seem to be going anywhere (FML), I recently bought a sweater/jacket that I am totally in awe of.

The Upper East Side of NYC has a new cheese shop! And it’s beyond amazing! Lucy’s Whey recently opened in Carnegie Hill, joining stores in Chelsea Market and East Hampton.
Unbelievable tragedy leads to a pretty uplifting interaction. Not sure how else to describe the below story. This post requires watching two short videos (and definitely shedding some tears), but I can promise it’s worth your time. Promise.
