Fall Favorites

Does your city have fall weather yet? We have been so lucky in Austin lately…75 degree days and cool, crisp mornings have started early this year – which is rare considering I usually don’t consider September to be “fall” at all here (generally, we’re still out swimming to cool off until Halloween!). This drop in temperature has us spending so much more time outside (goodbye, pesky mosquitoes!) which means stocking up on cozy sweatshirts, leggings and all weather boots (and maybe a cute pair of ankle booties for that weekly grocery store run, ha!). Sharing a handful of my latest favorites to kick your at-home fall wardrobe up a notch! XO

Popping in quickly to give you some fantastic news! No no I didn’t have the baby just yet… ūüėČ Although that would be fantastic x 1000…ha!

Everlane Favorites

Oh Everlane, you consistently have me swooning with every new arrival. Clean, classic and effortlessly chic…this brand just nails it every time. Pre-baby I shopped regularly at Everlane, then once pregnancy happened it was time to box up my high waist jeans and bring on the giant tees and stretchy leggings. Alas, my postpartum body is slowly but surely allowing me to wear all the high rise denim, skirts and cinched dresses I’ve been lusting after for months.

Summer Swimwear

My current daydream on repeat lately: basking in the sun, a chilled glass of¬†sauvignon¬†blanc in hand (omg yes), the soothing sound of waves crashing and that “ooh I look good” feeling in a swimsuit that hugs you in all the right places.¬†Grab your cat-eye sunnies, pull your hair into a top knot, add a turban-style silk scarf¬†and¬†sip that wine in style. And while this Amalfi Coast-inspired daydream might actually be a neighborhood-kiddie-pool-one-piece-ball-cap-workout-shorts-iced-coffee-by-the-gallon kinda reality, a girl can dream, right? ūüėČ Sharing 12 adorable swimsuits that’ll make you feel like a million bucks this summer…whether you’re in vacay mode or¬†#realreality mode. From pretty prints (florals, rainbow, polka dots) to feminine silhouettes (high rise, dainty straps, ruffles), it’s time to enjoy the summer¬†sunshine in any of these¬†darling suits.

PS. So many of these are on super sale right now! one (60% off), three (under $50), four (50% off), six (50% off!!), eleven (reversible!)

Which one is your favorite? I’ve got my eye on two & eight…sucker for a high rise swimmie…and gingham is always so timeless!

Nursing Friendly Tops & Dresses

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about putting together an outfit when you know you’ll be nursing your baby, it’s this: BUTTONS! They’re my secret weapon when it comes to shopping for nursing-friendly tops and dresses that make you feel GOOD. (…Because as my fellow mamas know, wearing workout gear on repeat can often be the norm…even when there’s no workout on the agenda!). Grab your favorite pair of high rise denim, some boyfriend shorts (comfort is key!) or even your maternity jeans – whatever bottoms you feel comfortable wearing, and pair with any of these cute tops. Whip out some classic sneakers or summer sandals for the dresses! Sharing more of my nursing secrets below…

Our 10 Favorite Baby Items

I’ll admit, before having Jude, we got a LOT of “stuff” for the baby. After having Jude, Blake and I quickly realized you really don’t need all the gadgets that the Internet tells you to buy. In fact, you don’t really need that much “stuff” in general to have a happy, well taken care of baby. My mom went with me to do my baby registry and she was pretty adamant about what we’d actually use vs. what is more of a trend (…and a waste of money…). I sort of feel like the baby industry is very much like the wedding industry…you prep and purchase “all the things” because you think you need them, but then once you have the baby or finish the wedding day, you figure out very fast what is necessary and what’s not. So! These are the 10 things we swear by for Jude. Every baby is different and what works for us may be entirely different from what works for others…but here are our top 10 favorite baby items…
