PETUNIA PICKLE BOTTOM

IMG_9026-2

IMG_9053-2

So as I am sure you know we are in full baby mode over here!  Well, baby product buying/searching mode. Haha.  By time this miracle baby is born in July there will be an almost 4 year gap between my youngest now and the baby.  As I am seeing A LOT has changed in the baby market + I am loving all the changes!!  All these fabulous baby items are so much more modern + sleek + stylish then ever before.

The first thing on my baby must have was a new diaper bag, and I knew the exact place I would look if we were ever blessed again with a little babe…Petunia Pickle Bottom.  I have admired their bags for years.  The selection is unreal and let me tell you the quality is just amazing!!  I am in absolute love with this City Carryall.  Since we are not finding out the sex of the baby I wanted to stay neutral + I wanted a bag that could get dirty but always look clean and new, so of course black was the only way to go.  Seriously, if your in the market for a great diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag (if that makes since) you’ll just die over their NEW spring line that just came out.  Really, I’m thinking of snagging another one…just don’t tell the husband.

Here are my other must haves I have been living in daily since the bump has been growing.  I’ve been trying to hang on to “normal” clothes as long as I can before I have to make the switch over to maternity.

  • Leather jacket…really everyone needs to have at least one leather jacket, and trust me…it will last for years!!
  • These are beyond my FAVORITE distressed jeans ever!!  They are way more then I would ever spend on a pair of jeans, but the stretch in these is just crazy + I can honestly wear them at least 5 times before I even need to wash them.  Trust me…so worth it.
  • Sneakers like these black converse are a must for any mom/women on the go.
  • We all know I love black…modern black tee + here are a few other tees that are similar, or I wish I had right now.
  • Petunia Pickle Bottom Bag spring colors and my bag in a Boxy Backpack.
  • STAY+Co baby blanket (similar)

THE HONEST COMPANY + new product

diaperswipes

So we all know about The Honest diaper, and I think it’s safe to say we all pretty much love them!!  Well, now I can’t wait to tell you about The Honest Company’s new line of feeding products!

formula+I can hardly wait to be able to use this new formula / along side nursing for baby!  Talking about nursing.  My doctor has alway wanted me to add DHA to my babies diet so now Honest has thought of that as well!!  The baby DHA is something I am also looking forward to using. Honest’s liquid DHA supplement is an enriching formulation made from pure, premium fish oils – optimized for your little one’s developing brain & eyes.  And can we talk abou this nursing cream!!  I have always had to use a cream for the first month or two of nursing.  This organic nipple salve is to help soothe pain and irritation.

combodha

So we all know if your going to nurse it’s always nice to have some sort of nursing cover on hand. Their new 2 in 1 nursing cover + scarf is so fun!!  Not only does it double as a scarf, but I love that’s it’s big enough to use as a light blanket or car seat cover.

combocoverOkay…next new fabulous item… the Honest’s bottles!!!  Yes, the word perfection might just be an understatement!!  These awesome bottles are made of silicon and are squeezable! Currently these come in 8 oz size and soon the 5 oz will be available.

FAVORITE EVERYDAY OUTFIT + FLATS

Hello friends!!  I can’t tell you how nice it feels to have the “cat out of the bag” and be able to finally share this pregnancy with all of you!  So far so good…baby is doing well and staying healthy and we couldn’t ask for more.

IMG_3630

So today I have decided to share my most favorite/worn items with you + might I add all are non maternity.  Also I might wear this “go to outfit” at least twice a week, but who’s counting?!  We all love a great tee + jeans + flats right?!  And the best news is…this t-shirt from Mulberry Press Co. is on SALE over at Brickyard Buffalo today!!

Okay, can we talk about flats for a minute?  I have bought quite a few pairs in my day and I have loved less then I’d like to admit.  But the day a good friend introduced me to Yosi Samra it was a game changer.  These babies fold in half + you can stash them in your purse (for when you have decided to be fancy + your heels are now killing you).  Yes, please tell me we have all had those days?  I have two pairs of their basic flats and have almost worn my first pair out because, I wear them non-stop.  Both my girls own a few pairs also and they are by far their most favorite/worn shoe ever!!  These black flats are my staple right now!

Best black jeans ever + all my basic every day jewelry… necklace, necklacewatchbracelet.  Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!

Nuna Stroller + exciting news

IMG_8924

So we have had some exciting news for awhile + we are over the moon thrilled about our little secret…but I am still a bit nervous to share the news as we have had a very rough last year, (but that is another post in itself).  All I can say is we have been getting plenty of practice with our new Nuna Stroller for when baby comes in July!!!  We couldn’t be more ecstatic about adding another little one to our family!!

IMG_8762

It has been so long since we have had a little babe in our house + any baby items that go along with a new bundle of joy, so we are pretty much starting over in the baby gear department.  Our first fabulous find was this stroller from Nuna.  We have already been breaking it in as Hayden is obsessed with strolling around her own baby + she likes to hop in for a ride as well.  She begs everyday to go for a walk + says, “I need to stroller my new baby.  It come out today?”   Oh boy, I wish babies could come that fast. Haha.  I am trying to enjoy every minute of this pregnancy as I know just how lucky we are to be having another little miracle join our family.

The IVVI is seriously a dream.  I couldn’t believe how easy it was for Hayden to maneuver + turn the stroller as she was “being mommy”.  I can’t wait to make so many new memories + take our new babe on so many adventures in our IVVI.

-These converse are pretty much a no brainer.
