Summer Of Love

This Summer of love has been an exciting one as we eagerly await the arrival of our new bundle of joy! With two little girls, people always say that we’re lucky to be able to reuse or share some of Elle’s things. While that’s true for some items, I’ve been very adamant on wanting the girls to have their own special things that can be uniquely theirs. For instance, Elle’s first nursery was cream with pops of blush, while this baby has her own distinct look – pastel blue with some botanical and bow details. Throughout this pregnancy, I’ve found myself leaning towards more pinks for Elle and blues for the new little one, whether it’s décor or clothing. 

One of the reasons I’ve loved having separate aesthetics and items for the girls is that I’m always thinking about what will one day be passed down to them. I’ve loved sharing the special items my mom saved for me, and I want the girls to have their own heritage pieces that they can one day share with their own little ones. When I think of classic baby clothing, I instantly think of Feltman Brothers. Their vintage-inspired collections are so detailed, darling, and instantly become family heirlooms. Elle has had the pleasure of wearing some of my Feltman items from childhood, as well as adding some new pieces to her own collection season after season. This year, she was excited to wear a new smocked dress in her signature color (pink of course) and an absolutely gorgeous knit short set with eyelet and flower embroidery. She can even layer on a classic cardigan which is perfect for school time later in the year! It’s the precious details such as lace trim, hand-embroidery and smocking that make these pieces so special and timeless. 

Of course, we can’t let big sister be the only one who is spoiled! Before her arrival, our new little one has some gorgeous Feltman Brothers waiting for her too! I can’t wait to share the outfits once she’s here, but I’m so thrilled to share some of the sweet items that are going in her hospital bag and that have adorned her nursery already. In addition to gorgeous newborn gowns and dresses, Feltman also has the sweetest accessories such as embroidered diaper coversbibs with lace trim, and booties with satin ribbons. One of my favorite pieces that adds a touch of luxury to the nursery is her new dainty baby blanket with a blue satin ribbon. I had an all-white version when I was born, so I’m excited for this little one to have her very own! To me, it’s the details like this that make the nursery so unique. It’s quickly become my favorite room in the house! Between the peaceful blue tones and elements such as vintage crystal, classic blue Wedgewood (of course Elle has pink) purchased from antique stores in my hometown, and seashells gathered on the beaches of the Bahamas during our babymoon that give the room a sentimental and personal touch. 

Now that our nursery is set, we’re just waiting for our little one to arrive! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of her room and all of the pieces that help make this time so special for our family. 

Thank you to Feltman Brothers for partnering on this post.


Spring Style with Mi Golondrina

Well dolls, I’m excited to share the brilliant news that we’re expecting again! This year is shaping up to be such a blessing and thrilling time already! With baby number 2, I can’t describe just how different my experience is this time around. As a mom already, it’s so special to share this time with little Elle. In addition, I’m balancing exhaustion with the desire to stay extremely present and make every moment as fun as can be for Elle. Already, we’ve made a trip to Florida and a first visit to Disney! This pregnancy, my style has also changed! I’m looking for easy, breezy neutrals that I can wear now all the way to my due date and beyond. Enter Mi Golondrina – the perfect staples that are always polished, and can be dressed up, but aren’t fussy. I love the unique and hand-crafted details that are woven into every piece. So far, I haven’t taken off The Josefina, a stunning white dress with feminine ruffles and hand-pulled lace. I wear it during the day with flats, but also dress it up for dinner with some gold earrings and strappy sandals. I’m also loving The Sofia, an elegant but relaxed, black dress with detailed embroidery. 

It’s these details and the elevation of the talented artisans behind the designs that really set this brand apart. As I’m having another little girl, I love to support brands that uplift women. Mi Golondrina is one of my fav brands that not only has gorgeous designs but a brand purpose that resonates with me.

A Trench For All Seasons

A trench coat is one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. No matter the season, it’s easy to layer over a sweater on a rainy Fall day, or even on a chilly Spring morning. I love a light top coat, so I have quite the collection of trenches in a variety of colors, weights, fabrics, and price points! To show just how versatile a trench could be, I layered three of my favorites over a simple shirtdress. What do you think, dolls? Are you a fan of the trench? 

Tan Trench: Burberry. Black Trench: H&M. Cream Trench: H&M (Similar).
