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.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

This weekend, I celebrated International Women’s Day for the first time as a mama of two girls. Thanks to Daylight Savings, I got an extra hour of snuggle time with my two minis yesterday morning.  I thought about how proud I am to be raising two girl bosses. I’m head over heels in love with being a girl mom and I can’t wait to see who these two grow up to be. Sharing some recent photos with my girls today as well as our outfits. Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.

OUR BABY IS A LITERAL DINNER ROLL

Chunky baby alert! This is probably the first post I’ve ever written that doesn’t feature photos of an outfit. But since Sadie’s arms and legs are literal dinner rolls, I had to share her deliciousness! Topping off today’s post with some actual style takeaway for you too: our favorite baby girl outfits we’re currently accessorizing these rolls with.

EVERLANE CASHMERE + TULLE

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.

FOUR MONTHS IN WITH SADIE

I can’t believe it’s already almost March and Sadie is officially four months old. I feel like I’ve known her for a lifetime and for a minute all at the same time and I’m savoring her ever-growing rolls that are truly expanding by the second.  This month, Sadie truly grew exponentially. In fact, she may be one of the biggest four month olds I’ve ever seen. We learned today that she’s in the 97th percentile for height and weight and that she already weighs 18 pounds! I’m not sure what’s in my milk this time around but our pediatrician predicts she’ll be at least 5’9. Both of our girls may or may not be able to pick their mama up by kindergarten so I’m squeezing them in my arms while I still can.
