Mama Style – How to dress cute even when you have a baby on your hip

Mama Style

I realized that becoming a mama & keeping a personal style can be a challenge. Sleepless nights & waking up at 5:30 a.m. to breastfeed does not leave much energy for wanting to pick out a cute outfit for the day.

I discovered that investing in a few key items can help put together a cute outfit in just minutes.

1) Pair of good stretchy black skinny jeans
2) Loose tops
3) Black boots
4) Big oversized sweater (for cold weather)
5) A cute scarf

I have to admit that I did take off the wedges & put on some flat boots when I actually went out the door. If you have these pieces you can just mix & match & still look cute while chasing around a crawling baby.

Let me know what you guys wear to your play dates.

Helsinki Finland – Day 6 – Churches, Lilacks & Farmers Markets

Masha Tal - Finland Lilacs

Helsinki Finland in June is filled with Lilacs. The city is hot so being on top of the “Hop On Hop Off” tour bus was the perfect way to experience all the sites. We saw a few beautiful churches and my favorite was the one made out of stone. At the open air farmers market we managed to eat some food without being attached by the lurking birds and enjoyed some much needed shade time near some lilac trees.
