TARGET BABY OUTFIT INSPO

We can’t believe Naiya will be turning one on August 30th–especially because our baby with all the leg rolls is already fitting into 12-18 month clothing! Naiya has been growing so quickly, I’ve had a hard time keeping up with stocking her closet. I keep folding up her 6-12 month outfits to store away and can’t believe how quickly time is going. I totally ugly cried a few nights ago watching videos of Naiya on my phone from every month of her life so far. Phil came downstairs and probably thought I was a nut. This parenting thing is so crazy emotional! How have Phil and I been parents for almost a year? Then again, it feels like a lifetime at the same time. 

HOW TO GROW YOUR BRAND AND BECOME YOUR OWN BOSS

Whether you own your own business or you’re someone who dabbles in social media for fun, in today’s crazy world, we have all become our own brands.

Last week, I finally had the chance to paint for the first time since Naiya was born. It was only for about an hour but I walked away feeling like I found a little piece of my pre-baby self again.  It made me realize just how much my life has chanced since becoming a mom and how much harder it’s been to give my creative passions as much attention as I’d like.  Between mom-ing hard, commuting to work and #girlbossing, I barely have enough time to breathe, let alone create. This has been driving me crazy!

HOW TO ROCK A TWO-PIECE SET WITH POLKADOTS

I can’t get enough of two-piece matching sets this season–especially with they come with wide-legged flowy pants.  They’re pretty much like wearing pajamas all day but you can still look put together if you style them correctly. I’m also polkadot-obsessed right now. Naturally, I fell in love with this yellow polka-dot pant and top set because it’s pretty much the best of both worlds. Sharing how to rock this two-piece matching set this summer and where you can scoop up some of my other favorite polkadot looks.

MUST-HAVE DRESS FOR PREGNANCY

Teaming up with Charming Charlie and Baciano today to share some fun clothing and accessories I’ve been wearing on repeat throughout the end of my pregnancy (and yes–I’m still very much preggo!). Our due date is now just two days away and the fact that we might surpass it is driving me crazy! So ready to get this baby out–I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever! I can’t wait to stop feeling nauseous and even better yet–to finally meet our daughter!
