Postpartum Style: 5 Key Pieces

Happy Spring! Let’s talk postpartum style. It’s tough, right? I’m in between my entire closet fitting me and most of my maternity clothes being too big (and really never wanting to see them again, anyway).  Well, I’ve had 6 weeks to experiment with what works and what doesn’t, what makes me feel like ME again and what makes me feel like I want to hide …

A Family Of Four

We had Ev’s newborn pictures taken about 3 weeks ago. Thankfully, we were able to get some family photos taken, too.  While I try to schedule family photos for each big life event, I didn’t get any taken during this pregnancy. Really, I felt giant and uncomfortable for most of it, so I really didn’t feel like getting all fancy and striking a pose in front of …

The Sweet Edit | No. 2

Another Friday, and another Sweet Edit! So glad I started this series because there has been ZERO time for me to sit down and write a whole blog post, and I can’t even think about a photoshoot right now…so this is perfect.  It’s short + sweet this week – I will get back on track with posts soon(ish) 🙂 XO (This post contains affiliated links.) …

Mama Of Two: One Month In…

Our newest addition is one month old and I can’t believe it. The past month has taken so long and has gone so quickly. Days have blurred into nights and back into sleepy mornings. I’m slowly getting the hang of this mama of two thing. The key word is SLOWLY. I have moments of feeling like I’ve got this, I can do it. Then, the next minute …

POSTPARTUM BODY IMAGE + A PUSH PRESENT

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.   Well, this weekend FLEW by. Although, these days I don’t really know what day it is or what time it is…so it could still be the weekend and I just don’t know it.  So, it turns out that over the course of 2.5 years,  I’d forgotten a lot about having a …

The Sweet Edit | No. 1

It’s me again! 2 posts in one week. I almost can’t believe it.  The Sweet Edit is a new series where I’ll share those things I’m loving lately, my favorite finds from the week, any great sales going on and end with some gratitude. Because being thankful is always in style. I’ll also include little life updates and anything else that comes into this mama brain.  …

Spring Style: Blush

Another blog post! Somehow I’ve gotten to be able to work a little bit in the past couple of days, and I feel like a real human. A very tired human, but real nonetheless. 🙂 Ok, so let’s talk spring style. I have what you may call an obsession. You guys, I can’t get enough of this gorgeous blush color. I want it all over …

Everly’s Birth Story

Wow. Baby girl is 12 days old already. I’m typing up her birth story. Pinch me, because I still stop in my tracks, shocked that I’m no longer pregnant. It all happened so fast…and 17 days early.  Saturday night we went to Whole Foods and Lowe’s. I was having pretty regular contractions, waddling through the aisles of Lowe’s, trying to keep up with the Mister …

Mini Style: Looking Forward To Spring With Carter’s

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.” I can’t quite remember a winter when I’ve ever looked more forward to spring. (And that’s saying A LOT when you live in Chicago.)  Harper was a summer baby, which was exciting, too. But there’s just something about having a baby at the end of winter, when you know spring …
