We have been in a mini heat wave here all weekend. I had friends over yesterday for some Sunday Funday bubbly and we were all sweating on the patio. The weather here just keeps swinging back and forth. I will say it has been nice and…

I know I am still shoving Summer down your throat… Sorry!!! I have some of these outfits I never got a chance to post and the outfits are too pretty not to share. Sun filled afternoons are my all time favorite living in a beach town….

    Charmaine Ng | Architecture & Lifestyle Blog - I know what you mean, there are just too many clothes made for summer! It’s still hot where I live (it’s 31ºC today!) so this post is still relevant to me!

    Maja Harder - There is just something about Summer outfit that you would never be able to bring into a fall-outfit, so I completely understand you 🙂 And your dress looks beautifulReplyCancel

      eat.sleep.wear. - Seriously! I think I could still wear this one with a layered white tee or skinny turtleneck underneath and a pair of tall boots. I love slip dresses so much. xo, KimReplyCancel

    Anna - Hey Kim ♥︎

    Just like you wrote, you are so lucky to live near the sea and in such a sunny place. I, too, have the sea just around the corner but I’m really missing the sun! Here in Finland, it’s now been raining for like 5 days in a row…

    I hope you will fell better soon! You look very pretty in the photos. I tried the Zara sandals on one day, and now I’m regretting I decided to leave them in the store.

    Sending love!

      eat.sleep.wear. - Awe Anna!! Hoping you get a break from the rain. Oh man, these zara sandals are actually so good. Maybe they will bring them back next season!! xoxo KimReplyCancel

    Sharon - This dress is simply adorable on you. I’m partially jealous of that So-Cal weather. Fall is so good right now in Pennsylvania, but it will end and I’ll be dreaming of summer when it’s 20 degrees out. Hope you start feeling better soon, I’m praying for you guys.

      eat.sleep.wear. - Awe seriously. My parents will let me know when it starts to get frosty in PA! xoxo KimReplyCancel

    Helen - That dress is so pretty! I really miss the endless summers in SoCal and being able to wear pretty things like this most of the year. I hope you’re doing much better after your surgery!

    Rachel - Such a cute dress! Beautiful look!


Today is the day. My third IVF egg retrieval surgery!! It’s been a long time coming prepping for this day. It’s taken me a prep time of 2 months to get me to this day so that is very special. In the past I have shared longer posts…

    Charmaine Ng | Architecture & Lifestyle Blog - You are so brave, in both what you’re going through and in sharing it. It’s hard to find a personal post about IVF nowadays! Please continue to share your journey, and all the best! 🙂

    Angie Clark - Thank you for sharing! As a newlywed I’ve only just begun focusing on natural fertility which in itself is a bit overwhelming, I can’t imagine what you’re going through. I’ve spent most of my life helping raise other people’s children for a living & growing up w/out a mom who left when I was a toddler, becoming a mother would be a dream come true. Thoughts & prayers your way lady love during this journey ♡♡ xoReplyCancel

    Sharon - Wow there is so much prep that goes into this day. I hope you are doing well and not feeling to bad. I am praying for you.

    Roos Fakkel-Pesch - Dear daughter of mine.
    I very much admire your determination, strenght and fearlessness.
    Knowing that as a kid and even young adult, you were fearful whenever you needed an injection.
    My hat is off to you Kim.
    I hope with all of my heart that this time things will align just wright, so that you and Blake will have the family you are hoping for and are more than ready for.
    XOXO your Mom❤️ReplyCancel

    Amy - Soooo glad you posted this! I am going to refer back to it and buy all the necessities! Hope you are recovering faster this time around. Sending good vibes…ReplyCancel

    Tanna Barker - I’m wishing you lots of luck. I’ve had friends go through this and I’ve seen first hand how emotionally and physically draining it all can be. I also hope hubby will have time to decompress as supporter as well.

    On a TMI note, the first bowel movement after baby (c-section or vaginal delivery) is also brutal to traumatized areas. It’s almost more scary than having the baby!ReplyCancel

    Diana Lopes - You’re so courageous to be going through this and actually being able to share it with us! It’s nice to know we can go through this with positivity and peace at mind =)ReplyCancel

    Harolina - In prepping for my future going through IVF (waiting till after the holidays) reading your story couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank you so much for sharing it all, it has given me an insight and some courage. (Crazy scared here!) Wishing you all the best! Sending you light, love and courage. Thank you, thank you!ReplyCancel

      eat.sleep.wear. - I am so glad I could help in any small way. I KNOW how scary it is looking into the face of the unknown. The treatment is intense and it’s all so much info thrown at you. But listen, you are going to be prepared and you are going to be a rockstar!!! Stay strong. You can do this. xo, KimReplyCancel

    Seppy - Thinking about you and sending you positive vibes sweetie!! You have a hoard of people behind you and wishing the best for you and Blake! Hope the recovery is going a bit better this time..

Moving into a new week I was looking through my hard drive and realize I still have quite a few warm weather looks to share with you before I go full fall sweater weather over here. It’s still been in the high 70’s here and…

As you know, Lola is a huge part of our lives. Some people just have pets, but Lola is truly part of our family (along with our kitties!). We make room for her in our lives in so many ways. One of those ways is making her comfy and cozy…
