Neutrals and Stripes on Repeat

Posted on: Wednesday, October 18, 2017


I'm wearing stripes and neutrals on the regular these days. I just scooped these boots and hope to keep them clean by spraying them with this treatment. Throw on some big earrings, and call it a day!

Lately...

Posted on: Monday, October 9, 2017


I just discovered Rothy's and I'm excited to try them out. These sustainable flats are made from water bottles! The current count of repurposed water bottles is 5,830,604. The flats come in many colors and are offered as a ballet or pointed toe. I always opt for a pointed toe because I feel it elongates the leg. I definitely have my eye on the petal pink pair which will have 100% of proceeds this October donated to breast cancer prevention partners (read more here).

Bonds Wondersuits were just gifted to us from friends who spent the last few years living in Australia. They said that these suits are perfect because the dual zipper (top and bottom) allows for easy changing. Exactly what I want for middle of the night changes - no buttons!!

My book selection is looking a bit different these days. I'm starting Baby411 and From The Hips. I'm also looking forward to checking out Amanda de Cadenet's new book It's Messy: On Boys, Boobs, and Badass Women.

Bone inlay remains a favorite and this mirror is a great price. Also love this whimsical pillow

Lastly, this wool cashmere shawl collar cardigan is 50% off right now with the code FALLFAST

Currently Loving

Posted on: Tuesday, September 19, 2017



I just grabbed the above sweater in anticipation of a cozy fall. I love that the price is SO reasonable and it's a company I grew up with. It's actually a men's sweater so I'm looking forward to an oversized fit. I'm also planing on picking up a little boat tote to use as a diaper bag.
Those napkins are calling my name, the pennant reminds me of my little sister,  and I'm loving the rug and side table.

Fall Pieces

Posted on: Sunday, September 17, 2017

Versatile pieces to elevate your basic jean look this fall. I love how outerwear and shoe selection can change the entire tone of your outfit. These selections will carry you through most weather and cater to your moods. Some days all I want is a Patagonia and kicks. Other times, a cape and coordinating boots makes me feel comfortable yet put together.

Baby Gear

Posted on: Tuesday, September 5, 2017



Calling all Moms (Dads too)!
The amount of baby gear out there can be totally overwhelming. I've put together my first post of "must-haves" for baby and would love your feedback. My choices are based on my own research paired with personal recommendations from friends and family. I'd love to hear what were your go to products? 
Miracle Blanket swaddles- I've heard that swaddling can be tricky and that this brand makes the process a breeze.
Sleep Sheep: I love that you can secure this little sound machine to the outside of the crib. With city noises I'm sure I'll be using it quite a bit! I like that the machine is removable, and has two sleep-timer options (23 + 45 minutes). I also love that "mother's heartbeat" is one of the sound options.
Owlet Smart Sock: Very interested to know if anyone has used this baby monitor! It seems like it would potentially create total peace of mind during the nights. Apparently, it uses clinically-proven technology to track your infant's heart rate and oxygen levels. The information connects wirelessly to a base station designed to notify you with lights and sounds if something appears to be wrong. Using the app you can view real-time data and receive notifications on your phone. 
Halo Innovations Bedside Swivel Sleeper: This bedside sleeper offers the convenience of cosleeping paired with the peace of mind that your baby is safe in their own protected space. Sound amazing to me!
Spectra Breast Pump: No clue in this department but I have been told you really need a good one and this brand has great ratings.
Baby Organics: I've heard nothing but good things about this line and love that it is fragrance free, dermatologist tested, and has plant based natural ingredients!
Angelcare Bath Support: I love the simple design and affordable price of this little tub.
Docking Sleeper Station: Not sure if this item becomes redundant when you have a bassinet? All the reviews I've seen are super positive. 
VISTA Convertible Stroller with Bassinet & Toddler Seat: Wow could there be any more stroller options! I definitely want to get this purchase right because city living means this will be used daily! I love how this option has the bassinet, seems easy to fold, and will work with this car seat. I also want to grab these mittens because they actually attach to the stroller! Another key winter accessory I want to use is this knit Bundleme.
Ergobaby Carrier: I know there are warnings and concerns about hip dysplasia but I've heard that this model is a good choice.
Birdling Weekender Diaper Bag: I was first drawn to this bag simply based on aesthetics but then I saw how incredible functional the pouches and pockets are on the inside.
ToteSavvy Organizational Insert: This quickly turns any large tote into an organized diaper bag!

Neutral and Cozy for both your closet and your home

Posted on: Thursday, August 31, 2017




It was so nice to spend time out in SF with my little sister. There's a very laid back effortless style out there and it inspired this no fuss post.  I was thinking of fall temps, comfort, and cozy pieces for both your closet and home.

Fall Transition Staples

Posted on: Monday, August 21, 2017


My picks for the basics that you'll need as we transition into fall temps!

1. The classic Tretorn gets a fall update with a blue velvet stripe on the side. This detail definitely takes the iconic shoe to the next level! $85
(Totally having flashbacks to my cute little pink pair that I grew up wearing for tennis)
2. This slouchy Madewell button down has the perfect cut and an even better price tag. I just snagged both the pure white and the blue striped versions for my upcoming trip this week $65
3. The perfect throw and go item for me is a blue and white striped shirt. To transition, I've traded my summer Saint James for this lightweight sweater material $78 (pre-ordered)
4. Love the vintage vibes and high waist of these jeans and would pair them with this top.
5. I just purchased these boots which are an investment but they are suede and the silhouette will never go out of style. I love that they zip in the back and the two inch heel is a comfort factor that I NEED for city living! Definitely looking forward to pairing these with everything from dresses to jeans.
6. Red shoes are a must for me and these ballerina flats are both feminine and practical. It doesn't hurt that they are only $99
7. Can't stop, won't stop with the bandanas! But this one is different because its actually silk and a favorite color, hunter green!

Vacation Staples

Posted on: Thursday, April 6, 2017


I'm so ready for vacation and we have a few trips right around the corner! Above are some vacation staples that I've already laid out to pack. I'm obsessed with how lightweight these earrings are and I feel like I can pair them with this dress for either daytime or an evening out. My basket bag is a new favorite but I also like this budget friendly option. These heels are neutral yet fun and the block heel makes them super comfortable. I plan to play a bit of tennis with my husband and this dress will help me look the part. I'll also pack a ton of these sports bras which are my absolute favorite for tennis, yoga, barre etc. Lastly, I never leave home without my sleep mask! This pure silk version is my current favorite.
