My greatest luxury as a new mom? Bathrobes. I own two: a fleecy warm one and a cotton yukata from Japan. One for winter and one for summer. There is a hook in the bathroom right next to the shower that I appropriated for my robe. It’s perfect for quick changes – I can get from a shower to nursing in record time.
The best part of the bathrobe is that it makes me feel like an elegant lady, even when I’m slopping around the house doing chores. Is that silly? I’m not sure… but I know that elegance is a tough feeling to come by when you’re taking care of a newborn.
Do you have clothes that make you feel elegant, casual, and comfortable, all at the same time?
PSb – The image is a sketch by Pablo Picasso. I found it on the always rad oldpainting.tumblr.com. Also, I own this fleecy robe. I purchased my yukata on a trip to Japan.

The hotel ‘Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita’ has been bouncing around the blogosphere lately…and oh my goodness, it’s now been added to my bucket list. From the pictures, it looks part monastic retreat, part luxury spa, housed in an old set of cavern/catacombs. I can imagine few things more relaxing than slipping into that soaker tub in a limestone cave, lit only by candlelight.
For a full set of beautiful and inspiring pictures, you’ll want to check out the hotel’s website.
