15 MONTHS IN: MOM AND BABY STYLE

I can’t believe how quickly December is flying by and that Naiya is officially 15 months old!  She just made it through her first ear infection this week so we’ve been laying low.  For the girl who almost always sleeps on schedule, putting her to bed this week was a million times harder! I’d put her in her crib half asleep and she’d wake right up and cry her eyes out while she clinged to me for dear life.  Now that she’s on the mend, I’m excited to finally be able to sleep tonight without staring at the baby monitor every five minutes (new mamas, you know what I mean!). Sharing our latest outfit post with you today featuring one of my favorite skirts of the moment and the cutest hand-embroidered blue and white dress on Naiya. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for a 15 month baby update too.

4 WAYS WE SURVIVED INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL WITH OUR TODDLER

Phil and I recently took the plunge into international travel with Naiya.  Thanks to some very helpful advice we learned beforehand as well as some experimentation on our own, our trip went so much smoother than we ever expected.  Sharing some of our favorite photos from our recent trip to Prague as well as four ways we survived our 18+ hour travel days with our ever-moving toddler. 

MUST-HAVE MADEWELL BASICS

Just as temperatures started to drop over the weekend here in Los Angeles and I pulled out ALL the cozy sweaters, LA decided to hit us with another almost 90 degree day.  While I’m definitely not complaining about the beautiful summery weather here, the schizophrenic temps are not always easy to keep up with outfit-wise.  Since Madewell is my go-to store for comfy basics throughout all seasons, I’m sharing where to snag my favorite must-have versatile pieces of the moment for fall. The best part? Many of these pieces are currently on sale for 30% off an already discounted price using the code “ORDERUP.” These basics are perfect for layering (if LA ever allows us to get there!).

MADEWELL COLLABORATION YOU CAN’T MISS

Happy Monday! We spent the weekend celebrating Phil’s birthday with our little family. This year was so much more fun than last year because we don’t feel as insanely sleep deprived as we did with a newborn! I remember that simply keeping our eyes open last year to sing ‘happy birthday’ felt like the biggest task. This year, we had a lot more energy and I loved being able to focus on my hubby who has become the most amazing dad. Excited to jump into a new week in one of my favorite fall dresses. Sharing where to snag it, a collaboration you can’t miss and how I styled the look below.

MUST-HAVE SANDRO PARIS SILK DRESS

When I first saw this silk floral-patterned Sandro Paris dress, it was love at first sight. When I realized it was also 60% off, I knew I had to have it.  Sharing where to snag this little number and similar ones like it at a steal for fall. I’m currently tracking it down in every color because I’m obsessed. Reviewing how the sizing works too in case you’re ordering online and are hoping to nail the perfect fit without having to deal with returns. Enjoy!
