Maternity leave is over: It's the Eye of the Tiger...

Well know i know what you are saying. Well Le Donna Has it all wrong. She and baby nugget are wearing leopard print. Hahaha You would be correct. But our Pandora station is playing Eye of the Tiger and now The Lion Sleeps tonight.
Both for me songs of motivation.

I know you are asking. Le Donna why do you and baby need motivation. Well it's because my maternity leave ends today sunday night. After almost 3 months of leave. A journey to baby nugget of almost a year. My life at 43 has profoundly been changed. I thank each and every single one of you who has been on this journey with me.

If you have looked at pictures, left a comment or just lurked. Thank you for adding to the tapestry of my journey now, our journey. You have helped me to navigate more than just this fashion journey. Time will be more precious as I return to work but I promise to read and when I can to comment.

Thank you Angie And my fellow fashion mavens for ER'THANG.

Now on to our what we wore.

Who does not like a great print? Oh my goodness. I was gonna go full on print for the both of us but my sister pulled me back from the fashion victim edge. Cause GRRRRR BABY!!!!!!.

While I sported a wideleg pinstripe pant and kente cloth heart shaped earings and denim loafers. Baby Zi'Joy wore denim leggings and a colorful hat and socks.

Our day was filled with adventure on this Sunday. My Auntie's took Zi'Joy & me out to brunch after church. I visited one of our Thrift group buddies Sassy Thrifters. I purchased this beautiful decorated water canister. Just the return gift I need to take on the work force. We also did our 1st trip to the supermarket

Well Zi'Joy was a perfect baby going out in the differnt environments. I'm so proud of her. She is fearless. I hope to nuture that and watch her grow into the fullness of the woman GOD has her to be.

As always all are welcome. There is a butt load of pictures to follow. Cause we love pictures.

Saturday in the park...

Greetings Family!

I just love that song of the same name.

Saturday in the Chi. was such a lovely day. After running a few errands we decided to take a walk in our local park.

So I've been struggling for a few months with what to carry Zi'Joy in. So much so I stuck with the car seat until last week. There are so many choices that it can get confusing.

So I was given this colorful Moby Wrap. It just so happened that i purchased one from the local store the day before. Ha I'm just glad i kept the receipt. Anyway this one is much more colorful and my style.

I'm still kinda trying to figure out how to wear it and with what clothing. I just decided to wear a simple jumpsuit snd headweap. I love the blues and greens in this fit and also the patter micing going on.

Zi'Joy aka Babby Nugget wore a cute flutter sleeve onesie with green polka dots. I swear I'm loving her onsies better than mine. Baby girl has snaps on her onsie. So so cute.

Anywhay here is our complet look.

Have a great day. Until next time.

Out and about...

Hey Family!

I have such a back log of pictures and reading to do. 3 in the morning seem a perfect time to post. Lol

Little Zi'Joy is growing by leaps and bounds. I'm finally coming to the end of my maternity leave. Although I had a difficult pregancy I'm having a wonderful maternity leave. We go to church and also to music, art reading play time at the local library 3 days a week. I've been able to meet a few other moms and day care providers.

This was 0ne of our recent looks for Library time. It has been in the 90s here for the past week. So the goal was to he as put together as possible yet wearing light weight clothing.

I've worn kelly green top and headwrap before for my neices graduation. It's such an airy top. I layered a pretty sheer poncho over it. Denim leggings and denim shoes completed my look. My earings are custom made.

Zi'Joy has the loveliest onsies and hats. She may have 2 wadrobe changes a day.

Picture 12 Baby is growing so fast. Let's see we also attended a local Fleek Market event. Our outfits were lovely. I'll have to recreate them soon. It was to hot to take to many pictures.

The heat would not let us be great.

Picture 10 Zi'Joy had her 2 months shots this week in the purple fit. Little one was a champ with those. Mommy cried more.

Picture 11 was at church this past sunday. I choose to wear baby in the baby wrap called a moby wrap. I love it and so does baby nugget.

13 is her 1st night sleeping throughout the night. I am so happy.

As ALWAYS I love feedback or just stoping in to say whats up.

Be well on your journey.

Complimentary not matchy matchy...

Greetings Family!

Or should I say long lost family. Haha I crack myself up all the time.

I have taken so many pictures and living life and posting on FB and taking of baby nugget (Zion'Joy) life as a temporary stay at home mom aka maternity leave has me all over the place. Okay enough with the excuses.

Today was our Sunday Church Flow. I wanted our fits to compliment each other instead of that mother daughter matchy matchy which we do with our camo. When I look back at our pictures and life I want her to know she is a reflection of me but her own individual.
Can you believe baby is 2 months old? Shots at the end of fhe week.

We are fully thrifted. I've worn everthing before except for the head wrap and baby bag. The pants a pinstripe wideleg strechy pant of some type of rayon that wears like iron. I need them hemed but i dont want to spend the money. Probably lazy. I know bad donna LOL.

Zi'Joy is wearing a pink tutu short thingy. Denim jacket that was tied at the back a simple white onsie and striped socks.

It just so happend that i picked her outfit first and my headwrap and cuffs and collar on my jacket were on the color family of what baby was wearing.

I will be posting the back log pictures of what we wore this week and stalking your post.

As always be well and enjoy the journey.
