LA mom and style blogger, RELish By Arielle, wears a Frances Valentine kaftan

I’ve officially graduated from athleisure wear on repeat to kaftans. After all, kaftan’s are just as comfy as sweats but they help you look more put together. After a year and a half with nowhere to go, I’m all for for getting dressed again (slowly!). Since we’re still picking up the pieces from the fire in our home a couple of weeks ago (more here), we’re spending A LOT of time outside in our backyard. Sharing photos we snapped this week featuring the girls, my favorite kaftan of the moment and our new lemon tree. This tree is even more stunning in person and these lemons are too good to be true. Feeling like the luckiest mama right now and I’m trying to soak it all in.


As of last week, we are officially homeowners with our own yard and patio space! While we had some unexpected mishaps moving in last week (more here), we’re still getting inspired by outdoor patio decor to stay positive. After all, summer is right around the corner and as soon as our new house is back to its original condition, we can’t wait to entertain and spend tons of time outside with the kids. Rounding up some of our favorite patio pieces of the moment that are all clickable (above and below).


After over a year of isolation, we were on top of the world seeing fully vaccinated family from near and far over the past few weeks here in LA! It literally makes me cry looking at these photos, thinking about how truly special this time was (and how much time we have all lost together too while the kids are so little). I know SO many of you have had quite the year and are in the same boat so I know you can commiserate!
