I’ve been on a bit of a tunic kick lately. I’ve been loving my tunic button downs and popovers, which led me to go on the hunt for a few additional styles to add in my Fall closet. The Lou and Grey line at LOFT was a major hit. They had so many cute sweater style tunics that are perfect for both jeans and leggings
I’ve been meaning to share these photos for quite a while now. Can we blame sleep deprivation and all that? Good.
Through a friend of Aaron, we found out about a local photographer who was looking for babies under two weeks old to model some newborn wraps. Layla just happened to fit within the window, and before we knew it, she had her first modeling gig set up with 11 Sixteen Photography.
This weekend flew by, probably because it was another busy, interesting couple of days around our house! We were out and about all Saturday afternoon and planned for a chill Sunday. But after going for my first post-baby run, I found a stray pitbull roaming in the median of a busy street. Poor thing had no identification and wasn’t microchipped, so he spent the day in my backyard until we were able to get him picked up by a nearby rescue. If we didn’t already have three dogs, I’m sure he would have ended up staying much longer. I’m such a sucker for dogs and get attached entirely too quickly! At least I know he’s now being well cared for and will find a forever home. Enough about my doggie adventures, let’s kick off Mix it Monday!

At the end of my pregnancy, I strictly looked for pieces that would work well beyond the third trimester. This was one of those dresses. I styled it multiple ways during pregnancy, and I’m still making it work! That empire waist line is ideal for flattering all shapes!
Now I’d love to see how you’re remixing your wardrobe! (more…)
I’ve always been the type of girl who loves getting dressed: putting on makeup, curling my hair, picking out my clothes… it’s always been one of my favorite parts of the day. But lately, all of that doesn’t happen that often. I’m sure I don’t need to say this, but these days this blog is representative of such a small sliver of my life. Life with a newborn is so much different than what it used to be. I still love getting dressed, but it only happens maybe 2-3 times a week!
Like I mentioned on Monday’s post, part of our epic weekend included a trip to Charlottesville winery, Pollak Vineyards. We’ve been wine club members there for about a year now, but with being pregnant and then having the baby, we hadn’t picked up our membership bottles in quite a while. We were expecting to have missed two quarters, but when we were given a full box and an additional tote of bottles, we were pretty overwhelmed.
