This summer is flying by! I think time drastically speeds up when you have a baby – I find myself looking at pictures of things that happened months ago and feel like they were just yesterday. And now that we’re in August summer days are really numbered. Although in Southern California it will still be warm til Thanksgiving.
Up until recently anytime I’d see anything with one shoulder, I’d automatically flash back to some cringe-worthy trends of the early 00’s. Specifically a black top I wore with a hot pink mini skirt to a Justin Timberlake concert that made me look like a Good & Plenty candy. So when this trend came back around I was a bit hesitant at first. Then I started seeing the silhouette more and started to love how ruffles could add a billowy look, instead of the body-con way I wore it in the past.
I’m struggling to get myself into a routine with Crosby. I base our days off of her feeding schedule but it changes daily depending on what time she wakes up for the day. Lately it’s anywhere between 6 and 8 am which means I sleep until then too. Before baby I woke up at 5 am every day for work so this is kind of unlike me. I think I’m going to try to start getting up at a set time each day even if she’s not awake to get stuff done. Any moms have any tips or advice?
But anyway, I wanted to share some instagram pictures from the past month. Lots of baby and spring fun. Looking forward to the summer months ahead! Just a reminder, you can always shop these via the ‘Shop My Instagram’ tab on the top of this page.
If this print looks familiar it’s because I wore the bomber jacket version just a couple weeks back! It’s so light and airy for spring, I couldn’t help but get it in both pieces. This slip dress is so comfortable and easy to dress up or down. I wore it to a brunch a few weeks ago with wedges and a denim jacket but you could also wear it with heels for something fancier. I’ve even belted it for a more fitted look. Love versatile pieces like this.
