Getting my hair done for the holiday. Should I get this pretty balayage again? What do you guys think? Also, speaking of the holiday, I’m taking the weekend off Instagram 😱 But when I get back, I have some exciting news to announce about a partnership with a company I believe in and am so excited to be partnering with! Can’t wait to share with you guys! In the meantime, I hope you all have a magical Memorial Day weekend✨🙏🏼

I realized I still didn’t  post a clear shot of this outfit, so here’s one more! I love this new super high-waisted trend. It’s great if you have bigger hips and a smaller waist. Ryan calls most of my jeans “jack-me-ups” as I’m always having to pull my jeans up when I stand 🤣🙏🏼. Anyone else have to do that? .
.
I know some girs have the waists tailored, but I don’t have the time for that. These @sezane cropped, high-waisted trousers fit perfect on arrival but ignore their advice to size down 🙈 This is how I knew: I have a  trick for online shopping! If smaller sizes are selling out faster, I size down. If larger sizes are selling out, I go larger. In this case, the 8s sold out, so I went with 6 instead of 4 as they advised. (I’m about a 4/6.) It doesn’t matter what’s on the tag! It’s all about fit! .
.
Also, sale alert if you need anything for summer, @nordstrom is having a 40% off sale, and they stock a lot of sustainable fashion brands like @sezane!

Apparently getting my library card makes me happier than any human being has ever been about anything in the history of the planet 🙈We are ticking off the moving checklist one by one! New pediatrician. New vet. New library. This new one has a great kids’ room. Every time the elevator doors open onto it, the baby says, “Wow!! ‘Mazin’!” Definitely my son 🤣🙏🏼 Do you have any favorite picture books we should check out? I’m not really that up on picture books, but I kept all my children’s novels, so they’ll be set in about 8 years 🙃. Wearing an outfit by @Sézane. I discovered them during #fashionrevolutionweek. I love the tiny, delicate details on each piece. Also, these pants are similar to the @jessekamm ones I’m lusting after but are half the price!

Trying to motivate to go off an exploring adventure even if today is not Friday & tomorrow is not Friday & even the day after tomorrow is not Friday 😫🤣 Luckily, this reusable @apolis bag will accommodate all our adventures as it can carry 100 lbs of things (even if I can’t)! Wearing my @sezane cropped trousers & espadrilles, which are just as practical & comfy as they are pretty. I’ll post a better pic of the outfit later! Have a great Tuesday! (Even if it isn’t Friday 😜)

J’essaie de nous motiver même que aujourd’hui n’est pas vendredi et demain n’est pas vendredi est même après demain n’est pas vendredi. Heureusement ce sac de @apolis peut porter toutes nos choses! Mes pantalons et espadrilles sont bien confortables aussi et parfait pour faire un peu d’exploration. Bon mardi (même si c’est pas vendredi 😜)

Ladies, marry the one who takes you thrifting 🤣🙏🏼👒🎒👜🧤🌂🕶 (Not to mention he’s a sweetheart about taking pictures for me as you can see in this shot 📷 ) .
.
For my first birthday with Ryan, he took me to brunch at Torisi (now Parm) & then all my favorite thrift shops in the East Village like @buffaloexchange (still there!) where I found these @coach wedges I (still) love! My dress is new by @faithfullthebrand but got a little wrinkled, awaiting a sunshiney day like today 🌞 .
.
Do any of you guys use a steamer or could recommend one? I have an exciting partnership I can’t wait to share with you all, but I need to step up my blogging game first!

Sundays are for sitting on stoops or stairs.. whatever’s handy. Thank you again for all the birthday wishes! I had a relaxing misty Saturday at home, updating my blog (link in bio 👆🏼👆🏼) & today we took the babies to a garden party in the gorgeous sunshine 🌻☀️, so I’m now definitely going to be sitting for the foreseeable future 😱🤣 My favorite thing to do on the weekends, actually! What about you guys?

Speaking of stylish British-American women, I  read a beautiful piece in the @parisreview about why purple is having a moment, and I’m not mad about it 💜 I’ll put the link in my stories. I love intricate, historical explanations for simple things. What’s your favorite shade of purple?

Some birthday swag 💜. Recycled @adidas shoes & antique clip-on earrings & a selection of @maisonlouismarie essential oils to help me pick my next scent 🎁🎁🎁
.
.
Also, I love reading about color trends. Do you ever wonder why colors change in stores like autumn leaves? Here’s a passage from a sparkling, short read in @parisreview tracing the sudden popularity of purple that helped me pick out my new running sneaks (link in my stories): “... lilac is the redheaded stepchild of the purple family. It’s not bright like amethyst or chic like mauve. It’s the color of doomed hotels, Nantucket in the off-season, dentistry, Elizabeth Taylor’s eyes, and Victorian half mourning. But right now, after decades of gray dominance and a few years of millennial-pink madness, both lilac and lavender (that slightly grayer herbal hue) are suddenly in the limelight.” #lilac

Hello, Thursday! Why do I keep (wishful) thinking you’re Friday?? Is it because my birthday is tomorrow 🙌🏼🥂🎂?! I only just realized May has become my month: between our wedding anniversary, Mother’s Day, and my birthday 🎁🎁🎁 .
.
Actually, right now, until about end of June, I don’t have much time for myself, even for blogging. Still, I’m hoping to get part 2 of my Earth Month #zerowaste experiment up this weekend 🌎💚 At the moment, even finding time to wash my hair is a struggle, although I have perfected the art of the 5-minute makeup routine. .
.
My older, Parisian sister has 6 kids, and I remember when I visited her, before having children of my own, she looked perfectly put-together, and I wasn’t even impressed back then 🤣🙏🏼. Still, I remembered her advice to take five minutes to put on a little makeup. Later, images of her perfectly tailored self came back to haunt me once I became a sweatpants-wearing mom myself.
.
.
While I don’t bother everyday as I’m only half-French 😋, here’s my 5 minute makeup routine: I apply tinted moisturizer, primer, a little concealer & foundation, then the same  @thebalm_cosmetics blush & matte lip whether going out or going for natural. Lately, I follow it with @lauramercier’s lip gloss as here👆🏼👆🏼. Some Better Than Sex mascara, two quick @stilacosmetics lines, maybe a little powder where needed, & that’s it. (You can see the lip is a little slap-dash in the second pic 💋)
.
.
Maybe that sounds like a lot, but it gets easy when you do it often. What are your get-ready-quick failsafes?

You gotta love an Instagram husband who tries so hard but often creates such hilariously wrong compositions🤣. It looks like we’re the mother & toddler-on-a-trike pair that got cut from the final edit of The Shining, right 😜🙏🏼 That’s why I’m so excited we found Better Photo Basics by Jim Miotke. It explains everything about cameras, pictures, & framing. All in concise terms & with lots of pictures. I highly recommend it! .
.
On a related note, I feel like a big reason I don’t shop sustainably 100% of the time is also due to a lack of knowledge. Slowly but surely I’m learning about alternatives: @wamaunderwear has the best hemp underwear & @rouje has the most beautiful, crisp white basic tops like this one 🌻 My red sandals are pre-loved @swedishhasbeens & I recently devoted a whole blog post to @levis ❤️They’re an amazing company! Who makes your favorite sustainable basics?

Another rule of thrifting: if Scarlett Johansson tells you you look good in a dress you should buy it, right😋🤷🏻‍♀️?
.
.
I got about three blocks from Cadillac’s Castle, a consignment shop on 9th Street in the East Village, before that occurred to me & I turned around. This was a few years ago, so I don’t know if the shop is still there. Anyone know? I used to live on 9th Street, and I loved the owners. They’d hand out glasses of champagne while you browsed! No wonder I fell in love with thrifting while living in NYC 🤣💙🥂! I used to see Agyness Deyn in there, too! .
.
So glad I got this & kept it (mostly because of the story) even though polka dots only really just came into style, and I’ve only just started wearing it. And yes, she’s just as beautiful in real life! Have you guys ever had a funny celebrity encounter?
