MUST-HAVE TODDLER & BABY DRESSES

A friend of mine introduced me to a children’s clothing brand my girls are now truly living in. Loving these pink gingham dresses so much, we actually have them in two different colors! It’s blowing my mind that Naiya and Sadie are almost wearing the same size, but that’s another story. Today, I’m sharing where to snag these looks as well as some similar looks we’re loving too.

SNAPSHOTS FROM JAPAN: YASAKA PAGOTA

Since many of us are still stuck in quarantine and dreaming of travel post COVID, we could all use a little digital getaway. Sharing some of our favorite snapshots from our babymoon in Kyoto, Japan exactly one year ago at the beautiful Yasaka Pagota in the Higashiyama District. The architecture throughout this city is so serene and relaxing, I can’t wait to go back someday (more here and here). We stayed right at the base of this incredible Pagota and waking up to this view was so memorable. In addition to these photos, sharing a basic comfy outfit for prego mamas who will someday be on the go again some day below.

MUST-HAVE CHUNKY KNITS

It’s finally feeling like fall here in Los Angeles–at least throughout the AM (which is a big win for us)! By noon, it’s still in the 80’s but we’ll take it! To celebrate, I pulled out some of our favorite chunky knits and other cozy pieces this week. Naiya actually ended up putting today’s look together herself–mainly because she wouldn’t let these boots go because they double as one of her favorite toys.  Sharing how to style chunky knits this season and where to snag one of my favorite sweaters in a few different colors.  Topping off today’s post with one of the cutest baby moto jackets we’ve ever seen and of course where to snag Naiya’s handmade booties!

MUST-HAVE MADEWELL BASICS

Just as temperatures started to drop over the weekend here in Los Angeles and I pulled out ALL the cozy sweaters, LA decided to hit us with another almost 90 degree day.  While I’m definitely not complaining about the beautiful summery weather here, the schizophrenic temps are not always easy to keep up with outfit-wise.  Since Madewell is my go-to store for comfy basics throughout all seasons, I’m sharing where to snag my favorite must-have versatile pieces of the moment for fall. The best part? Many of these pieces are currently on sale for 30% off an already discounted price using the code “ORDERUP.” These basics are perfect for layering (if LA ever allows us to get there!).
