with holden in the cast, we have been spending a lot of time in the city as there is always so much going on that he barely notices the fact that he's being carried everywhere instead of running around.  there is instant entertainment around every bend and since it has been so hot in the bay area, the city is the perfect way to escape the extreme heat wave that has hit california (and the rest of the country).  just being in the city and seeing new things is a fun adventure for holden and something different from our day-to-day normality.  on this slightly misty day, we ventured around one of our favorite neighborhoods to grab a bite to eat and gaze longingly at the insanely large homes on the hill.  holden found a beetle on a wall that holden kept in his pocket and searched for treasures in a giant wall of ivy.

days in the city always call for the most glamorous of clothing and it just so happens that one of my dreams came true this past month when holden and i were lucky enough to try out a few pieces from oscar de la renta's latest collections.  i've had a long love affair with oscar de la renta (my dream wardrobe would consist of nothing but oscar de la renta skirts and dresses), but have you seen oscar childrenswear?  i am head over heels for the boys line which is dapper, colorful, and classic (holden looks so handsome in oscar).  i can't say too much just yet, but i am working on a very exciting project with the amazingly talented mother of two and vp of the art department for oscar de la renta, marissa.  follow marissa, her two beautiful children, and their adventures in new york city on their blog george and ruby.
