The Floral Print Midi Dress | What I Wore Wednesday



Dress: Reserved | Sandals: H&M | Necklace: H&M

For the past few weeks I've been admiring this dress in the Reserved shop everytime I walked past their windows and I couldn't really go in and try it on, because I had baby Victor with me. So when I finally got the chance to try it on, I fell in love with it even more and just had to get it. I think it's such a perfect summer dress. It has a subtle floral print and it's a midi length dress - but it's quite long on me, since I'm not the tallest woman. I've already worn it a lot and I only bought it maybe a week ago. It's perfect for stroller walks and it looks like I've put a lot more effort into my outfit that day than I actually did. I just throw on the dress and some cute sandals and I'm good to go!

INSTAWEEK IN THE LIFE OF A MOM #3 | 6 Month Old Baby


If you're a mom then this will probably sound pretty familiar to you...but lately I'm feeling like time is flying by sooo fast with Victor. After the 6 month mark, I feel like he's reached so many milestones and he's doing so many new things that I can't keep up. I'm pretty sure I'll blink once and he'll be a toddler before I know it. My tiny newborn who used to only smile in his sleep and had such slow movements is now laughing at everything we do, he's almost crawling, he's sitting up on his own, he's eating solids and he's getting more cray with each day that passes. Let's just say: changing his diaper or putting on his clothes make me break in a sweat from all the struggle. Haha! :)

This past weekend we've also had to lower the mattress to his crib to the "big boy" level, because he's getting so mobile now that I'm afraid he's gonna grab onto the crib bars soon and climb out. I remember when we first got the crib I felt like this moment of lowering the mattress is sooo far away. 

Oh, and recently he's been enjoying sleeping in that position (in the first pic), with one foot between the bars. Honestly, who sleeps like that?! Hihi! We always find him in the weirdest sleep positions. :)


We've also had a few play dates with other babies and mommies and it's so refreshing and fun, although you couldn't really tell from the serious faces of the boys in this picture. Kinga is a lovely mommy who also has a blog and youtube channel, so if you're interested in seeing what she's up to you can check out her blog here: kingascorner.com


Since the weather has been wonderful lately, we've been spending a lot of time outside, in parks, in the botanical garden, on walks around the neighbourhood. I think Victor is enjoying it a lot too, as he was probably getting a bit bored of staying at home most of the day (during winter). On this particular outing he fell asleep in the stroller for about an hour (which is unusual for him, he usually only sleeps for 30 minutes max when we're outside). My hubby and I enjoyed some peaceful moments in the meantime, just listened to the birds, enjoyed the sunshine and had a tasty ice-cream. It actually felt like we were on a date. That's so rare after you become a parent or at least in our case it is, since we don't really have a lot of help at the moment. It was amazing!


Have a wonderful day!

Aztec Print | Botanical Garden Trip | What I Wore Wednesday


Pants: H&M | Top: Stradivarius | Shoes: Deichmann | Backpack: Zara

Now that the warm weather is here, I have re-organized my closet and brought out all the summer bits that I have. I am so excited this season, because I get to wear all the lovely items that I couldn't last summer as I was pregnant and my belly didn't fit in them. These aztec print pants are one of those items. I paired them with an off-white top that I got from Stradivarius and a pair of brown flat sandals. Super casual and perfect for walks with the stroller. We went to the local Botanical Garden on this occasion and it was really lovely and quiet. Victor took a little nap while we were there and I got to read a bit and enjoy some peaceful moments. The book I was reading is called: "Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids" by Laura Markham - in case you were wondering.

Embroidered Blouse | Spring Outfit | What I Wore Wednesday


Blouse: Zara | Jeans: New Yorker | Necklace: H&M | Backpack: Zara

Ever since this lovely weather made it's appearance we've been spending a lot of our time outside, in parks, on walks around the neighbourhood or just chillin' on a blanket in the grass. It's such a nice change. I feel like Victor has been enjoying it a lot too, he's so curious about everything when we're outside and he also sleeps a lot better, I would say. It's probably from all the stimulation that's tiring him out. One of the items I've been wearing a lot this season is this blouse that I know I've already shared quite a few times with you. But I just can't get enough of it. It's so flowy and feminine. I love it!

Striped Navy Blazer | What I Wore Wednesday


Blazer: SheIn (a long time ago) | Jeans: New Yorker | Shirt: New Yorker | Boots: Deichmann | Backpack: Zara | Watch: Reserved

Today's outfit is one that I love and have worn many times. I've had the blazer in my closet for a few years now (I believe) and I love throwing it on for when I need something to spice up a dull outfit. On this particular day I just went to the grocery store, but I still wanted to put more effort into my outfit than I usually do.

When Your Baby Grows Too Fast | PatPat Baby Clothing



One of the most bittersweet experiences of a mom's life is probably seeing how quickly your baby grows up. It's probably very cliche and I know every mom says this about her baby, but I honestly CANNOT believe how much little Victor has changed since birth. Now that he is 6 months old, I feel like there's a lot of new things he can do that he was not able to before: he can sit up on his own, he eats solids, he babbles like crazy, he rolls around and crawls backwards and I have to keep my eye on him constantly while he's playing on the floor, cause if I turn my back even for a second while I'm cooking in the kitchen, I'll find him next to the fridge in the other side of the room. Haha! :) He's so mobile now! I love his newfound independence through all of these milestones, but at the same time I want to soak up all these moments and appreciate them while they last. 

I also wanted to share with you some adorable baby clothes that I got sent recently. I'm sure you've heard about PatPat or at least seen their ads going around. Well, they contacted me and allowed me to choose a few items that I would like to share with you. So I chose these three cute baby onesies. When I first got them I thought "Wow, these will be huge on my tiny baby" (they are 6-9 months in size)...well, come to find out that they actually fit him pretty well. They're a tiny bit baggy on him, but I know he'll fit in these in no time. If you're interested in more details about these items, you can also watch my youtube video below:


Have a great day!

Checked Leggings Outfit | What I Wore Wednesday


Leggings: Zara | Shirt: New Yorker | Watch: Reserved | Necklace & earrings: Meli Melo | Boots: Deichmann


Don't let this outfit fool you! It may look a bit fancier, but in fact it was really comfy to wear since I'm really wearing leggings, not actual trousers. I paired them with a simple white shirt tucked in the front and some jewelry to make myself look more put together. I did end up taking the necklace off as the day progressed, because baby Victor was way too intrigued by the sharp shapes of it. Haha! 

Have a great week!
