More Holiday cheer

Our Xmas tree
Candles for table decor
Mini Xmas tree 
Here is what the decor around our place looks like.  But what I love most are the little handmade xmas (red things hanging on tree) ornaments my niece made with Nico's pics on them.  She is so cute and so in love with our little Nico man.  She says she wants to marry him one day... But I am still looking for a stocking for Nico.  Preferable sliver. What do you think about the one below?

Christmas is in the air

Lunch at Caffe Italia

All bundled up for the cold.  Nico loves his walks!

His first solid
Nico's first photo with Santa

This year Christmas just feels more exciting.  I have been making my husband a little crazy with all the Christmas music I've been playing since right after Halloween.  I guess having Nico has made me feel a little bit more like a kid and thus very festive. It's just fun to sip hot chocolate and watch Home Alone.  This is def on my to dos before the 25th.  Here are some pics from my weekend and whats been happening around here.  Also do you find it a little weird that Santa told me to sit on his lap!?!

Accessories Queen!

Wish List

Rebecca Minkoff i phone cases/2  Ray-Ban metal aviator sunglasses/3 Daniel Wellington watch /4 Kate Spade (similar) /5 Tory Burch Wallet  /6 J.Crew heart bracelet 

I just wanted to share some of my fave accessories out there at the moment. Accessories are great because they can turn a boring outfit into a glamorous one or give a bohemian vibe just by adding a couple of jewels or a great bag. Currently wishing for this great wallet from Tory Burch. The color is fabulous! What are someof your favorite accessories at the moment?

NYC with baby!

Walking through the Highline Park

Breakfast at The Standard

Shake Shack burger and fries.  THE BEST BURGER.

Meatpacking district

MWG and baby in Central Park

DVF ad.  How pretty!

Daddy and baby in Washington Square Park

Many people told me that a trip with a baby would be hard and not the same as before.  But I can attest that it was different but in a great way and even better. Our families thought we were crazy to take our four month old on a road trip to NYC, but he actually loved it. We basically did the same thing we used to do before. We went to brunch, did a little shopping, chilled in parks and walked alot. Nico would chill in his bassinet (which was perfect as he got to take his naps) until he was hungry, which is when we would stop and find a nice park or bench to feed him. We rented an apartment through airbnb which was located in the Meatpacking district and was so practical since it was centrally located and surrounded by great shops and restos.  All in all we had a wonderful time and we can't wait to return to beautiful NYC with Nico when he is a little older.

Loving these foxy sweaters for mom and baby.  Both are made of soft fabrics which will be perfect for fall. Tory Burch also has shoes and make-up cases with the same fox.  So cute!

Blogs I am loving right now

Andrea (mother of two cuties) really knows how to capture beautiful moments with her children.  It is such a wonderful photo blog of the day to day in her children's lives. It motivates me to take better pictures of Nico.

I am also loving this blog where this family shares bits of their daily life.  Their images and stories motivate me to try different activities and to get out of my comfort zone.  They recently moved back to NYC with two small children.  Love how adventurous they are!

This blog just makes me want to eat ice cream all the time! Just kidding, but I do feel like cooking more and trying different restos after browsing this blog. And her daughter Ruby is such a cutie!

Lil Working Man turns 3 months

Just wanted to give a quick update on my little man who turned three months last week.  We went to the annual company bbq/family day in this outfit.  Found the tie was just perfect for the office setting!  Hehe love the shirt collar too!

MWG's to do list

To do

Having a baby really doesn't allow time for much so I decided to start a list of things to get done before the end of my mat leave which will force me to do stuff for me and him.To make these goals/to dos S.M.A.R.T I'll say that I will blog at a minimum once per week.  So hold me to it! I will finish my MBA by the time I go back to work and have already registered for one class in December. I will also try to cook one healthy dish per week (I leave the rest of the week's cooking to my hubby, just kidding if you're reading this Fab:). By the time Nico is 6 months I plan to take him to swimming lessons at the Y. And lastly does anyone have any recommendations for a good read? I am looking for some good books to read while Nico sleeps.

Life and Style after baby!

I can hardly believe that its been 2 months since I had Nico.  The day to day is really demanding but at the same time so rewarding.  I realized quickly that I cannot wear the same things I  used to and have had to make some wardrobe changes. At the same time I've also been making a big effort to wear cute yet comfy clothes. Fashion has been a big part of my life and with the baby it will definitely change and evolve but still be apart of me.  I am currently loving cute colorful flats for lots of walking, crossbody bags which are easy to carry with a baby and summer dresses which are both stylish and easy to breastfeed in. One of my fave celeb moms is Jessica Alba and whose style I used as inspiration.

A Love for Classic Pieces

Elin Kling and I both love classic pieces for their versatility and their ability to last for years.  Classic clothing are great investment pieces and will be worn time and time again.  Love this video and the great scenes of New York! Have fun watching:)

Miss WorkinGirl and Baby!

So I guess I have been a little MIA these past months.  But there is a good reason for that.  Sometimes life changes and you just need to re prioritize. As much as I love fashion, I have had to put the blog on hold because of school, work and my pregnancy!  Yes, it's true I'm having a baby:) A boy to be exact and I am very excited. Being fashionable during pregnancy has been a challenge and so I just want to share some great looks for spring as inspiration. I am currently loving the Asos Maternity line and H&M Mama. Both very stylish and comfortable which is important during pregnancy!

Pastels are so perfect for spring:

A great skinny jean is a must and this color is so fun:

A great look which is perfect for work:
