MY FAVORITE ATHLEISURE WEAR

After weeks of gray, rainy weekends here in usual sunny California, the sun came out this weekend and it finally felt like spring. It’s been the perfect weather to wear some transitional pieces recently–especially in terms of workout wear. Sharing one of my favorite athleisure outfit combos with you today as well as some recent photos of Naiya. My mini is continuing to grow like a weed and I’m so not ready! That long hair! Doesn’t she look like a teenager in these photos?!

BLACK FRIDAY SALES YOU CAN’T MISS

Happy Thanksgiving! We’re so excited to round up our favorite Black Friday sales from a very chilly New York today. After having a big family meal with three generations this afternoon, we can’t wait to bundle up on the couch this evening to shop away.  Sharing where to snag some of our favorite steals and deals today and tomorrow, as well as where to scoop up our outfits from right before we left sunny California. We’re definitely not dressed like this today! We’re currently wearing about 50 more layers for sure and we’re freezing our buns off!  Naiya is looking a lot like the main character from “A Christmas Story” who is so bundled up, he basically falls right over. Hardcore #Californiamom vibes over here! I’m so obsessed with keeping my mini extra warm out here that I’ve probably gone a bit overboard.
