When you find a good (affordable!) thing...stick with it!

Earlier this week I wore this exact outfit, except the sweater was white- click here to see. When you find a good thing, I say stick with it. Especially when it is so affordable. At only $39, so I got it in white and green, too (it comes in 5 colors)! I love all how the black adds a touch of sophistication. The necklace adds interest and a bit more flair. It's comfy and layered so I can easily take the sweater off if I get too hot today. This is a perfect outfit for Thanksgiving dinner at home with the family, specially if you're traveling! You could always pair the sweater with some shorts on a warmer day, or add a peacoat (I love THIS ONE on sale right now) on a colder day! And, of course the necklace can go from day to night. Happy Friday! 

I feel the need to add that Hayden was just sitting up in the 4moms bassinet stroller for the picture-- not while we were moving. Safety always first;)

Final moments of Summer...perfect for resort wear!

Although I'm looking forward to fall, it's still warm enough to keep the sun dresses readily available. Plus, I fully plan on wearing this dress with a denim jacket or pastel pink cardigan to transition into the next season. This color keeps selling out (I know!), but it's being restocked.  In the meantime, the other two colors are just as fun and flattering.  Loving the detail in the back! (oh and ps- I don't always match my outfit to my son's diaper!!, but when I do, I make sure it's a happy pattern!)

I'm still working on toning and tightening post-baby, so I'm not afraid to say I'll wear spanx if needed.  And the higher cut in the front will show off sandals, wedges or even low booties. Just a fun, affordable dress!

Hidden Gems...like zippers on nursing attire!

On a recent early date night (yes, we brought Hayden because he's at a good age and we made it a very early night) I thought I had it all planned out perfectly.  But, alas, I'm learning there is no "perfect" with a newborn and nursing. He needed to eat sooner than I expected and I happened to be prepared. These nursing dresses are pretty genius with the hidden zippers. (And if you've followed me for a bit, you know I'm a sucker for pockets, too). 

Just picked up these booties that will work with this dress (and in other patterns here) through the fall and winter. Speaking of fall and winter, I also grabbed some wraps that work for nursing in public (like on this date night), but will double for cozy warmth in the colder months with or without nursing. 


SUMMER WHITE! on sale!

Last weekend, we visited Travel Town in Los Angeles's Griffith Park. Huck is slightly obsessed with trains, so this was a perfect family outing. I dared to wear white, but lately I'm oxy cleaning daily, so I figured why not! And today I found out my shirt is on sale for $40! I actually had women stop and ask me where I got it. It's easy, classy and I love the flirty little touch of lace.  I'm wearing a small. It's fairly room-y.  I remember reading once that when in doubt, go monochromatic. So, I threw on skinny white jeans, (those are part of the #NSALE)  white converse and some fun chunky white earrings (can you believe they are $14?) and threw my hair in a messy bun (the messy part was courtesy of the long sleepless night).  And, I protected Hayden's little eyes with these polarized, non-slip glasses.  So hilarious and cute and necessary- and come in a ton of colors. You can also get babiators baby and toddler sunglasses on sale right now here.


And I rounded up other summer whites! Take a look below!
