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!).

GRAPHIC TEES WITH A MESSAGE

I’m loving Phenomenal, a brand founded by Madame Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena. If you’re not yet familiar with Meena and her embroidered/graphic tees, definitely check them out. Meena’s designs are so minimal, chic and most importantly, they speak to relatable, societal issues we’re currently facing in an empowering way. Rounding up some of my fave pieces from the Phenomenal collection (clickable below) with you today.

GIFTS NEW MAMAS REALLY WANT

LA mom and style blogger, RELish By Arielle shares gifts new moms really want

When most -people think about gifts to buy new mamas, they usually gravitate towards generous gifts for her new baby. While these are ALWAYS appreciated, I’ve learned it’s also important to brainstorm gifts for new mamas to enjoy during the postpartum period and beyond. After having Naiya, a friend gifted me the most beautiful “Naiya” necklace and to this day, I literally never take it off.  It was one of the most thoughtful, special gifts and it left such a lasting impact. So today, I’m rounding up gifts for new mamas (clickable below) to enjoy in case you’re racking your brain for what to buy them.
