Amber Dress c/o Flynn Skye  /  Free People Straw Hat  /  Fringe Bag c/o Linea Pelle  /  Sandals – F21

It’s no secret I’ve got a big crush on Flynn Skye.  I got to meet the designer Amber at a party a couple weeks ago and she was just as wonderful in person as I expected.  Her dresses are so comfortable and relaxed and the prints are always on point.  They are pieces that can easily be dressed up or down and can be worn from day to night.   I’ve got a few of her dresses, like this one, that just might last me through this entire pregnancy!  I have yet to buy a shred of maternity this summer, and hopefully I can keep it that way!

I was able to have what the doctor’s call a “growth ultrasound” last week.  It’s basically an ultrasound making sure that the baby’s growth is on track.  Last pregnancy, they had some concerns over Rylee’s growth and my small belly size….so anytime there is a history of that, I guess they do this extra 30 week ultrasound.  I certainly didn’t mind the chance to see my little guy moving around on the screen again!  He was so much bigger than my last ultrasound at 20 weeks.  So big, it was actually hard to see him.  I did get a few photos of his sweet face though, making me that much more excited to meet him and hold him in my arms!  Results came back totally normal and he was already measuring in the fifty second percentile.  Just above average! I don’t necessarily know what average is…but I was pretty excited that everything looked healthy and that he was growing so good.  It’s pretty insane to think that in just 8 short weeks we will become a family of four!

 


FREE PEOPLE DIY EVENT

These are just a few photos from the DIY event I hosted on Thursday night at the grand opening of Free People’s San Diego store in Fashion Valley.  I had so much fun meeting new faces and crafting with everyone.  I will share this yarn wall hanging DIY in detail here soon!  I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with Free People on a few different occasions now, and I really can’t say enough good things about all the people involved with the brand.  From the girls in the shop to the home base team in Philly.  It’s so refreshing to see such great people behind such an amazing brand.  The new store in Fashion Valley is the largest I’ve seen with such a wide product assortment.  Large enough to get any girl in trouble who steps through it’s doors :)

Thanks for having me Free People!

I’m wearing:  Warby Parker Downing Sunglasses // Madewell tee dress  //  Bradley Mountain X Loneflag Scout Bag

Rylee’s wearing:  Tiny Cotton’s Beach Tent Dress via Murray & Finn // Zuzii Sandals // Custom Bradley Mountain Children’s Scout Backpack

Sam and I have a good friend named Tyler who owns a brand called Bradley Mountain.  He specializes in rugged outdoor bags and accessories, mainly working with duck canvas and leather.  Every piece is thoughtfully designed and created by Tyler himself.  We are huge fans of not only his timeless products, but also the heart behind his company.

One of my favorite pieces in his collection is the Scout bag.  It’s classic and minimal, with just the right touch of femininity in it’s natural color. And I happen to think that it’s the perfect unconventional diaper bag.  Tyler is even thinking about creating a collection of kids/toddler bags, like this custom mini Scout bag Rylee is wearing!  So hound him on instagram (@bradleymountain) about how awesome it is and this just might be a reality ;)  I have searched high and low for stylish children’s backpacks, and let me tell you, they are few and far between!  This one takes the cake, and then some.


WISCONSIN 2014

Northwoods Wisconsin….how we love you.

If you were to ask Sam or I where our favorite place to vacation is, I’m pretty sure both of us would tell you Wisconsin.  It probably seems odd to most people, but to us, those northwoods are filled with the best memories.  Memories we want to pass down to our own kids, and relive through their eyes.  Sam grew up spending his summer’s at his grandparents cabin in Solon Springs, and my sisters and I grew up spending our summer’s at our grandparents cabin in Phelps, WI.  We both have the same nostalgia over those beautiful Northwoods.  Skiing, fishing, fort making, family, good meals and stories around the campfire.  We might be getting older, but those memories are still as fresh as yesterday.  Who knew two kids from California would meet and bond over their love for the cheese state!  But every time we go back, it’s just as wonderful as we remember it.

We spent 4 days there, and like always, they went by much too fast.  I kind of loved that my cell phone didn’t have service and that there was no computer for me to check my emails on.  Unplugging to the fullest is the best way to experience this place anyway.  We soaked up a lot of sun and swam in the lake and watched 6 kids under 6 run wild….we laughed with family and ate a lot of meat and didn’t wash our hair…..and it was perfect.

Can’t wait to see you again Wisconsin, and to have a certain little boy meet you too :)
