POLKADOT MAXI SKIRT + SHOULDER PADS

I recently shared some BIG family news: we’re currently in escrow on our first house WITH A YARD!  While buying a home with a yard may seem completely attainable throughout many parts of the country, it can feel impossible in LA. The housing market here is currently out of control and the prices are outrageous.  I can’t believe we may soon be homeowners rather than townhouse owners (as we are now!).

SPRING SUNNIES ROUND-UP

Los Angeles mom blogger, RELish By Arielle, shares quarantine activities for toddlers

It’s crazy to think that March is this month when March was also last month. What year is it though?! Somehow, spring is right around the corner again! For the occasion, I’m refreshing my style with ALL the new sunnies. After all, the rest of my wardrobe is pretty content with quarantine basics right now (more here) and mama needs a fresh start! Sunnies-wise, I am noticing a lot of smaller, rectangular, retro styles and I’m here for it. Today, I’m rounding up a few of my favorites that I have my eye on in case you’re in the market for a sunnies refresh too.

WFH SPRING DRESS ROUND-UP

I can’t believe it’s already time to start thinking about spring clothing! It feels like just yesterday we were preparing for spring when COVID decided to make its unexpected appearance. Clothing for spring looks a little different this year considering most of us are still spending A LOT of time at home or working from home. Likewise, rounding up a number of amazing dresses for spring (clickable above) that are comfortable enough to wear while working from home. These dresses also happen to be cute past all the zoom calls and they’ll turn heads out in the real world too (someday!).

CORONAVIRUS: HOW ANXIOUS SHOULD WE BE?

We snapped these photos a few weeks ago when Sadie and I had a date at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel. It was a couple of days before I went back to work from maternity leave and I remember feeling so nervous!  At that point, I hadn’t been away from Sadie for more than an hour or two here and there and I was trying to wrap my head around what our new normal might look like. Looking back, it’s crazy that at this point, coronavirus was not yet a household name and that so much has changed in just a few short weeks. Likewise, along with rounding up our outfit details today, I’m sharing some ways our family is protecting ourselves against this scary virus in case this info helps any other anxious mamas out there.
