MATERNITY PHOTOSHOOT: OUTFIT INSPO

I planned on sharing our maternity photos before Sadie was born but since the past weeks have been such a blur, excited to finally share now! Better late than never! Naiya, Phil and myself had so much fun snapping these a few weeks back while we dreamed about what our family of four would be like. Throughout the shoot, I remember feeling like I was about to pop and wondered how much longer Sadie could possibly stay in my belly.  She was clearly running out of room in there and I couldn’t wait for her to come out! Looking back at these photos now, though, dare I say I actually already miss the bump?!  I had such a tough pregnancy where I was very sick and threw up every day and yet I still look back at this time missing it! Am I crazy?

SADIE AMELIE’S BIRTH STORY

Just over two weeks into welcoming Sadie Amelie into our lives, I still can’t believe I’m a mom to another daughter! My heart has expanded further than I ever could have imagined and I feel like the luckiest mama alive!  Excited to share Sadie’s birth story with you today as well as some of our favorite photos from the first few minutes she came into the world.  Phil and I will savor these shots forever and we’re so grateful they’ll help us to relive one of the most incredible moments of our lives for years to come.

37 WEEKS PREGNANT IN VIONIC HEELS

As a busy full-time working mama, giving up comfort for style is a non-negotiable. I’m constantly balancing running after our non-stop toddler with being in the office or on set and my feet need to be pain-free to do all the things! Excited to share a shoe brand with you today that I’m loving for all of the above reasons and more.  Also sharing a much-needed bump-date! This baby could come any day now!

A CONVERTIBLE CARSEAT WE’RE LOVING

As a new mama, when it first came time to buy the perfect carseat for Naiya, I was totally lost.  There were so many options out there at all different price points and I remember feeling totally overwhelmed! If you’re on the hunt for the perfect carseat and are feeling the same way, this post is for you! Sharing the affordable carseat brand that’s been a lifesaver for us since Naiya was born.  Excited to also share how it’s grown with Naiya throughout the first almost two years of her life.

TUTU + SCARF DRESS

Writing from Reno-Tahoe where I’m spending a couple days away with my hubby. It’s only my second time away from Naiya since she was born and it was so hard to leave her! Phil convinced me to come with him on this business trip so that we could get a little time away together.  In the end, I’m so happy he convinced me!  Missing Naiya like crazy but it’s so refreshing to have a quick breather outside of Los Angeles (and to practice not being a #stagefiveclinger. We snapped these photos right before we left of Naiya in the cutest tutu dress and me in one of my favorite scarf dresses. Sharing our outfit details below as well as a few similar looks I’m eyeing at all different price points.
