I Drank the White Sneaker Kool-Aid




So I did it. I drank the white sneaker Kool-Aid. It took me a while to warm up to this Cool Girl trend, but decided to go with this Rebecca Minkoff pair in lieu of the omnipresent adidas out there BECAUSE I’M A REBEL LIKE THAT. Besides, I like the studded straps — they exude a tough-gal vibe. 

My sweet daughter Ava snapped these pics during my final days in Cape May, and I have to say we really bonded over this trip. Why? Because we indulged in il doce far niente — the sweetness in doing nothing. I decided to keep both kids home for a week (no camp! Ballsy mommy move — I know) and we enjoyed pleasant idleness. Think rolling around in the grass. Swinging on swings. Cooling off in the pool. Lounging around in our PJs.

And I have to say, there’s something to be said about living a simple life void of activities, plans, events and alarm clocks. We learned a lot about each other’s personalities and all it took was just being. And living. And doing a whole lot of nothing. Imagine that!
