skirting the issue

perfect skirts

I hope you all had a lovely mother’s day weekend. I can’t believe we’re in the middle of May! Saturday, my husband made me delicious sourdough French toast and then we took baby Henry to look at the koi in the Japanese pond at the Brooklyn Botanical gardens when it stopped raining. Saturday night we had a low key get together with a couple of close pals. We ordered in Mexican, planned to watch a movie but wound up just chatting instead. My friend Brian even put together a cute rocking chair for Henry while we chatted. What a good “uncle” he is.

Sunday our families came over for fresh fruit salad, scrambled eggs, bagels with walnut and raisin cream cheese, homemade cranberry scones (that my mom made), apricot rugelach (that my mother in law brought from a gourmet market), & coffee to celebrate mom-hood. It was my first mother’s day as a mama. I even got an igreen gift basket, nursery rhymes book to read to Henry and a manicure gift certificate. I can’t believe that next year Henry will make me a scribble and know how to give me a kiss!


The weather is all over the place. One day it’s as hot as summer and today it’s windy and cold. Still I’m hoping for permanent sunny days ahead. Here are some summery skirts I have my eye on. I love how easy it is to dress up or down the right skirt. I need to be able to wear them on a picnic blanket in the park and out for brunch on the same day:

  1. JCrew linen charter skirt
  2. JCrew floral skirt
  3. Rory Beca from Shopbop floral skirt
  4. APC denim skirt from Bird
