Truthfully, I’m not sure where to begin this blog post. Since coronavirus has broken out all over the world, many of us have found ourselves quarantined to our homes. Millions are expected to become extremely ill, freedom as we knew it feels like it has vanished overnight and everything else has quickly started to feel so trivial. But, in the spirit of trying to inspire and keep our minds in as positive a place as possible, I’ve been trying to think of some ways I may be able to help in even the smallest of ways. So, as someone who has always emoted through writing and through creating, I’m excited to share tips for working from home today while you have kids in tow.
Cashmere is having quite the moment in my closet right now. I scooped up a bunch of light, comfy sweaters from Everlane for spring and now I’m officially hooked. Sharing a pink cashmere look with you today which I paired with one of my favorite tulle skirts, a classic belt, nude heels and white jacket. Also sharing some recent photos of Naiya and Sadie. These two are truly growing a million miles per minute and the way they look at each other is officially melting my heart.
I blinked and Sadie is officially over three months old! Sharing some of my favorite recent shots of her and Naiya with you today as well as where to snag my favorite black tulle skirt. I recently posted this look on instagram and received a bunch of DM’s about it. It happens to be on sale so I’m linking to it below. I also wore this skirt in pink a couple years ago (here) but this time, I dressed it one down with the comfiest sneakers because #momoftwolife.
I’ve officially been back at work for over a week since maternity leave ended and it’s been such a whirlwind! From long nights nursing Sadie and comforting Naiya to pumping at the office every three hours, this mama is tired! When I wake up in the mornings completely groggy, the last thing I want to do is spend too much time picking out my outfits. That said, since I still want to look put together for the office, I’ve been mixing and matching basics to create a fool-proof office “uniform.”
I can’t believe I’m officially three months into being a mama of two girls under 2.5. Time has flown by SO much quicker with Sadie than it did with Naiya because my hands are so full with a non-stop toddler. It’s been a wild ride with Sadie being hospitalized with RSV at three weeks old and a number of sleep regressions with Naiya. But overall, we’ve savored the last 12 weeks and I would love to freeze my girls in time just as they are. To celebrate getting through the fourth trimester in (almost) one piece, I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving about my girls right now as well as some of our favorite recent photos.
