One week in the woods

We are back from a week in the woods. Yes! We tried out our new pop-up camper for the past seven days. We drove up to Gloucester, MA and spent a week with the kids dodging mosquitoes and playing in the sand. Here is a look at our vacation by the numbers:

1 sprained ankle - Alex woke up one morning and could not walk. We found a local pediatrician who would see him and determined it was a mild sprain. Thank goodness! I was convinced for a good hour that he had been bitten by some toxic mosquitoes that left him partially paralyzed.

1 naked toddler - A little accident on the beach forced me and Alex to walk to the rinse off showers. Me - screaming from the hot sand. Him - clutching his towel to cover his business. He dropped it toward the end and shouted as loud as he could, "No one look at my pee pee!!!" I've never been prouder.

2 Racoon Sightings - Those things are no joke. My husband and I were enjoying the campfire while the kids slept inside when we heard rattling under the camper. I was not totally unconvinced that one of my children had not snuck out. A flashlight proved that a racoon was poking through our trash. We named him Rocky and exchanged email addresses before he scurried away.

300+ mosquito bites. No explanation needed.

3 tubes of sunblock / 0 sunburns - Yay me!

7 sand castles crushed - Oh, it wasn't ours that were accidentally stepped on it was my little Godzilla that crushed the castles on our beach walks. I apologized and scolded him. Other mothers said not to worry as they seceretly judged the lack of control I had over my child.

12 cocktails - See above.

8 Ice Cream Cones - We have already determined that next year we will require ice cream to be eaten every single day. It only seems right.

4 Good times had - Yes! Everyone had a blast. They declared it the best time ever - until Saturday when Lillyana went to a party where Elsa and Anna from Frozen showed up. Whatever. I'm still counting it as a win.

Chloë Sevigny and the Dover Street Market

January 22, 2020

I have always been intrigued by the actress/model/director, Chloë Sevigny because she’s an independent spirit who follows her own path. I mean this in a good way. Back a bit, I read that she had just earned a nice chunk of change so she treated her friends to a stay at the GoldenEye resort on the island of Jamaica.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
