It’s rare that you’ll find me in bright bold colors and busy patterns. I’m really more of a simple “neutrals” kinda woman and my wardrobe is 90% comprised of black, olive, ivory, denim and.. leopard. While I do have to admit that I love the occasional floral pattern, leopard is my most favorite print of choice – as far back as I can remember, too. In my mind, it goes with [almost] every color and remains timeless.
Since it seems like it has been raining here in South Florida NON-FREAKING-STOP (& that’s not an exaggeration) over the past few weeks, I can’t help but daydream about our upcoming summer vacations. Visions of wind-blown hair (mine & Henry’s ha!), swimsuits and our toes in the sand are clouding my mind lately and I think it’s safe to say I’m so excited to get outta town! While I know traveling with the babe in tow won’t be the most “relaxing” of vacations, I truly do love any excuse to travel and can’t wait for Henry to experience all of our new adventures.
When planning a vacation, I always do some shopping beforehand. A trip is the best excuse to spruce up my wardrobe and find a few pieces that will travel well and fit whichever destination is on the radar. Plus, planning a vacay is almost as exciting as the actual vacay – am I right?! From beachy accessories to lounge chair reading material, below are a few of my summer travel must-haves!
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! As promised, here is my blog post on my decision to incorporate more natural products into my daily routine. I’d love to finally do the FULL switch from head to toe, but I am honestly having a hard time letting go of some of my favorite beauty products! Someday I’ll get there!
Even though our sweet baby is only just shy of six months old, I find myself saying to my husband all the time, “Remember when Henry…” And whether I’m reminiscing on his squished little baby face right after he was born or watching a video of him waking up full of smiles from when he was only three months old, it often feels as if he’s been here forever. Having Henry has made me realize so many things about life and about being present. One of the greatest things I’ve learned is that life is truly measured by memories and moments.
It’s not only so important to me to live and revel in these moments, but to capture them as well. Time has never seemed to fly by so quickly! I’m always snapping pictures with my camera or phone, and I’m always quick to jump at the opportunity of a family photoshoot. Right after Henry turned 5 months old, we had a family session with the amazing Jessica Bordner (who did my maternity session) and I’m SO glad we did this! It’s so much fun getting dressed up and even more so with a baby. I had ordered a pair of Freshly Picked baby moccs for Henry that I had been saving in his closet for a perfect occasion like this!
I have loved Freshly Picked (but who doesn’t?!) from even before Henry was born and always wanted him to have a pair (or five..or ten..or..). They’re SO CUTE. Not only do they come in every color imaginable, but they release seasonal styles as well (like these cuties) that are always to die for! They smell amazing like fresh leather, are such high quality and they’re so super soft for our baby’s precious feet. I can’t wait to see what they come up with for summertime. I’m hoping for a lobster print!
Spring is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited because it’s one of my favorite seasons! Living in South Florida allows me the pleasure of having beautiful weather most of the year, but there’s just something about spring that makes me SO happy. I love spring styles, spring’s seasonal signature colors and of course – the flowers and everything green!
As much as I’m addicted to the color black (it compromises 80% of my wardrobe) and the darker winter hues, I do appreciate the change of pace in spring and the ability to wear the colors at the other end of the spectrum, my endless collection of sandals and my favorite light wash denim. Obviously, with that being said, I was so pumped when my mint green and wood JORD watch arrived at my doorstep. Mint green is one of my go-to colors and wood is the perfect complementing material. I’ve found this unique watch to be incredibly light weight (so important when carrying around a 16lb baby!) and well-made. This past weekend, I paired it with one of my easy “new mama” outfits – boyfriend jeans, a white tee & a pair of white Converse sneakers. The watch was the perfect accessory and added a nice pop of color to my outfit!
