and we're off!

super bright shorts from jcrew=traffic cone visibility




elias's awesome bloomers made by julia
well, i think everything is packed and ready except for leon's toys. whenever i pack for a long trip i start to question my clothing purchases. but at the end of the day, it's still important to have a collection of fancy things, even if i haven't worn most of them in over three years. or so i keep telling myself!

*oh, and i highly recommend dry-cleaning ilana's silk clothing. i made the mistake of hand-washing. nothing disastrous, but let's just say the top is no longer in pristine condition. it may just be an issue with the green print. i'm still going to wear the top at every opportunity, but this was a good lesson in why sometimes 'dry clean only' means just that!*

most days are tough but good. these two guys are starting to look a lot more like brothers to me. one thing i know is true: when leon is near, elias only has eyes for him.

erica said...

Thanks Renee! It doesn't help that I'm on the short side--Leon seems so tall to me, too!

the cuteness is unbearable! i feel like they are starting to look more alike as elias gets a little older. best wishes traveling with those two! i bet it will be a blast.

{I made the mistake of hand washing a dry clean only Rachel Comey dress and ruined it - never again!}

those pictures are so sweet! have fun on your trip, erica! i know i always have trouble packing for trips. i *think* i'm starting to get better at it, though. maybe next time, everything i pack i'll actually wear!

aw, bummer! yeah, i wouldn't have recommended anything but dry clean only for that piece cause of the buttons & interfacing. :( A trip to the dry cleaners (even though you already washed it) might smooth out the silk a bit though....

julia said...

i'm a bit late on board for this, but, have a great trip!! i'm so jealous, can i come too?!
