Outfits: Style the Bump #3 (EN)


Yes it’s style the bump #3 with mommy-to-be #3 on our blog!
Let me be honest… so far I am not really impressed with the maternity collections of the major brands like H&M, x, y and z. Even in a City like NYC the selection is very very small and poor.
What I have been doing over the last weeks was simply trying to wear what my standard wardrobe has to offer and I have been on the hunt for affordable loose and stretchy dresses or pants.

Long shirt: COS (available in stores) // Pants: H&M (available in stores)// Sneakers: Acne Studios (here) // Shades: Oliver Peoples

Dress: Zara (here) // Shoes: Steve Madden // Bag: Chloe Marcie (size: small) // Shades: Ray Ban Aviator

Dress: DvF (wrap dress) // Shoes: Tory Burch (similar: here) // Shades: MiuMiu

Dress: Topshop (here) // Shoes: Manol0 Blahnik // Bag: Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag (size: mini mini) // Shades: Oliver Peoples

Dress: H&M (available in stores) // Shoes: Tory Burch (similar: here) // Shades: Oliver Peoples

DIY: Kids’ Movie Night NY Style (EN)


This week for most pre-schools and schools in the US the school year has officially ended and the summer break of 10-12 weeks has started.

To celebrate the end of the school year and to kick off the summer we have been invited by friends to join for a kids’ movie night. And yes people here love to celebrate and there are many occasions to do so!

It was a spontaneous invitation which turned out to be genius!!! The “little” cute backyard (spacious and generally rare for Manhattan) of our friends’ town house was turned into a relaxing chill out zone for the parents on the one side and the other side of the backyard was the movie zone for the kids. Since the gender ratio was not quite balanced this evening (6 boys vs 1 girl) the movie “CARS” was picked out and I was happy that I didn’t have to watch “Frozen”.

To warm up the kids for the movie they could paint their own “cars” made out of cardboards. To be honest this was the best idea of the evening. So simple but extremely effective! All kids were highly motivated to paint and to decorate their car(dboard)s. They were allowed to take blankets, pillows and of course “drinks” with popcorn into their OWN car(dboard)s. So there was not one single fight about mine or yours or running around!

Once the movie started we all had our glass of wine (orange juice for me) in our hand and peace of mind with 7 happy kids!
