2020 Is The Year Of The Mother. We’ve had to learn how to balance the impossible without being able to safely leave our homes. Many days have felt nearly impossible since mamas never get a day off yet we’ve made it through. I designed this “Mama Strong” sweatshirt for all of the amazing mamas out there to wear as a BADGE OF HONOR this year and always. I’ll be donating 10% of the proceeds to March of Dimes’ ‘Mom and Baby COVID-19 Intervention And Support Fund.’
Naiya is turning three years old this weekend! I literally blinked and here we are (I’m not crying, you’re crying!). Naturally, I’ve been going down a Naiya photo rabbit hole back to the first moment I met her and it’s all just so surreal. Sharing some recent snaps of Naiya and I during this everlasting quarantine in basic outfits we’ve been wearing on repeat. Commemorating the end of her being two and officially becoming a three-nager!
As Los Angeles continues to open up today after three months of quarantine, I’m anxiously awaiting what this will mean for us all. What will our new normal of social distancing look like post-lockdown and will we be able to keep COVID numbers down? We snapped these photos just outside of our home to commemorate this crazy time.
A week and a half into our quarantine, I’ve been making it a point to create as much normalcy throughout my day as possible. It’s the least I can do throughout all of this uncertainty while balancing work and kids at home! One way I’ve been doing this is by making sure I actually get dressed in the morning. The first few days working from home last week, I wore a lot of sweatpants on repeat. This ended up getting old because I realized pretty quickly that they were making me feel sluggish and unproductive. Sharing a dress with you today that I’ve been living in instead. It’s just as comfy as sweats but it looks and feels more presentable–especially on all of my zoom conference calls (AKA the new normal)! Styling it two different ways below while social distancing.
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.
