Traveling through the Amalfi Coast was absolutely incredible. It provided the perfect back drop for some early summer time fashion. A friend gave me an adorable and comfortable blue skirt and I found plenty of use for it on this most recent trip.
The skirt itself satisfies a variety of needs for me:
Pop of color
Flexible fit for my post pregnancy figure
When in Positano, I paired the skirt with a graphic tee I purchased at H&M. When on our boat ride to Capri, I wore a simple white v-neck to match with the beautiful sea we were sailing on. I really enjoyed how both outfits came out, but for future reference, I would not recommend heels in Positano! 😆

The rocks hurt my feet!

These summer outfits make me ever more excited for the season to come!
My brother and his girlfriend recently arrived to visit Matilda, and we spent Sunday in downtown Zurich. In honor of the gorgeous, sunny, spring day, I opted for a springtime outfit. I paired my floral embroidered boots with my new Tara Jarmon coat.
We started our journey at Zeughauskeller for a traditional Swiss lunch and then introduced my brother to Sprungli. Sprungli has the most amazing hot chocolate/coffee/caramel drink called a Sprungli Caramelito. Yum! The entire city seemed to be outside given the weather, and we enjoyed people watching while sipping our delicious beverages.
We then wandered over to the carnival that popped up at Burkliplatz. It was a super fun and colorful background, perfect for some outfit photos!
Mommy fashion – there is something to be said for taking the time to “dress up” each day. Attempting to pull together a cute outfit while balancing our beautiful new daughter Matilda is a challenge. However I am up for this challenge. Given my love of fashion, when I feel successful in this endeavor, I wish to celebrate it. 🙂
But why is mommy fashion important? Well for starters, being able to shower and get dressed each day while multitasking the needs of a new baby is impressive. As new moms know, it’s hard enough to make time for blogging let alone showering or putting on makeup.
Additionally, my body is very different post-baby than it was pre-baby. Sometimes I don’t feel so great about how I look. My tummy is loose and jiggly, my hips are much wider, and I can’t find a bra that fits. When I can pull together a great look, I feel good about myself and become less concerned about the aftermath of pregnancy.
So onto my recent outfit. While my parents were visiting, we traveled to Milan and a variety of Swiss cities. These trips presented multiple opportunities to try my hand at mommy fashion, and my Bern outfit was one of my favorites. I love these photos even more because they include my darling Matilda.
