Top Ten: Loomis’s Spring Break Essentials

Unlike (T)Annie, I unfortch will not be headed for fun in the sun this Spring Break.  Well, hopefully it’s sunny and fun but not like lounge by the pool, Dew Skin #4, fun.

We are headed to NYC.


1. Firstly, I needed some new Spring duds for the chiquitas. Like my crocuses, they have sprouted over the winter.

We plan on being quite touristy so we also need some cute walking shoes (oxymoron). I’m anticipating lots of sore feet & complaining. Who’s jealous? We may as well do it in style.

 My fellow #twinggirlclub peeps – You may be familiar with this issue -the outfits need to be equally cute – yet not matching.

I know we are super lame wearing NY-themed garb to NY – but guess who gives zero fucks does not care.

is everything.

2. We will be traveling with plenty of baggage.  {Ba dum dum.}

But who couldn’t use some cute new spring purseables?

I’ve been eyeing this one for moi – perfect transitional bag and matches my walking kicks. (#5)

{P.S. HUGE SALE at ShopBop for the next 3 days.  You’re welcome}

The girls have these glittery gems already and will be bringing them.

(I know I know enough with the pizza already)

3. Layers!  It is nearly impossible to find the right Spring jackets.  I had to go practical for my girlies.  But I really wanted this bomber.

It’s reversible so it would solve our matching/not matching woes and it’s FREAKING adorable.

BUT I want way too many things for myself to buy my kids expensive shiz so I went practical. Besides, it gets chilly on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty! And no doubt our New England Spring will keep us guessing weather-wise so Patagonia fleeces it is.



4. Hotel sleeping means new PJS for everyone!

for the girlies . . .two-pack – score!


and matching jams for mom & GrandJan, too? Nerd Alert! (oh yes, this is a girls trip, y’all)


5. Coloring Books for idle little hands while Grandjan and I crush wine.

This one looks adorbs inside.

6. Ruh-row, Mom needs walking shoes, too!

All the cutest patterns were sold out – womp – so went basic back.

7. The Easter bunny is bringing these!  I’ve never regretted documenting a family vacay. Or have I?



8. Guess who is making her debut in the big apple?!

10. Hugs. I am bringing lots of them in hopes of receiving some in return.


Aiming to see some old and new friends (perhaps even Long!) this trip for some much needed good vibes.

Wishing a very happy April break to you all.

Hug someone you love no matter where you are.
