Good morning and happy Monday.  Josh and I got away for a short trip to Charlotte for a friend’s wedding shower and some shopping over the weekend.  Happily, the weather was fabulous.  Made for a nice drive.

Anyway, Drew over at Coral Cafe tagged me in this fun “5 things I can’t live without” series.  My post won’t be nearly as gorgeous as hers, (she is a graphic designer afterall) but I’ll give it a go.  Oh, and in the spirit of keeping this fun, I won’t share the real things I can’t live without… like my toothbrush and water, Lilly’s video monitor and stroller, cheese…

Massive Bags
I don’t know what I would do without large bags in my life.  I carry this Gucci Hysteria Large Tote as my daily diaper bag, and it’s held up so well.  I love it because it’s not the tradtional looking diaper bag, yet is big enough for me to carry just about anything.  My Dad gave this bag to me as a gift while I was pregnant.  And I plan to pass it to Lilly someday when she’s old enough to appreciate it.  I already consider it “hers”.
Seriously though, how did I live without an iphone?  I can check blog stuff, all my social network sites, email, text, surf the web, listen to music, take photos and videos of Lilly, oh and actually use it as a phone too.  OH, and I’m in the process of designing my new iphone case by Dani Notes, which you know will make it that much cooler :)
Right now I’m crazy into Adele’s music.  I seriously rock out.  Enough said.

My eyes are super sensitive to the sun.  I like to think that wearing posh sunglasses keeps me from squinting, and therefore helps delay the dreaded wrinkles.  This pair by Alexander Wang is on my birthday wishlist.

Family & Friends
Because I love her so sooo much I’m just going to post another pic of my girl here.  I hope ya’ll don’t mind the indulgence.  Oh, and Lilly likes sunglasses too ;)
So now I have to tag another blogger to continue on the series.  Cassie at Hi Sugarplum, you’re it!

I was recently turned on to avocado toast. And frankly, there’s no turning back now.  It’s that good.  I’ve always struggled with breakfast.  I much prefer a slice of pizza over eggs anyday.  And after so many consecutive days, everything bagels get (gasp!) boring.  This avocado toast recipe posted by Lisa from With Style & Grace is where it’s at.  Trust me.

Lilly even likes it too.  But she’s much more into her cinammon toast, bananas, and greek yogurt. 
And speaking of bananas… did you see this adorable Harry Allen designed banana bowl that Margaret over at Accessories Please shared this week? I really want this. 

Because our bananas are always just laying around on our counter… it’s bananas….

What happens when you whisk away a group of European style bloggers to Milan?

You get a bunch of gussied up girls, of course.  The kind of girls that draw a crowd of passerbys’ attention.  Carrie of Wish Wish Wish blogged about the weekend (she’s in the camel colored Zara dress).  Their photographer, Miguel Santana, shot a pretty cool video of them perusing the city.  If you have the time go see.  
But don’t you just love this shot?  Even the girls’ shadows exude their attitude. 
So tell me… which of their ensembles most reflects your style?
