Hello! I writing this from Santa Barbara as a guest of our fam at Zappos! We were one of their top performers this year and so we attended #CJU16 with them! Pretty cool! At the time I was the only one that could make during their dates and even though having an infant typically would get me a pass, I knew it was important, so here I am! Raleigh has been so good but man am I worn out! It’s not easy traveling solo with a baby. It’s also funny how certain cities and airlines people are just more baby friendly than others. United is the place to be if you travel with an infant. Also an UppaBaby System. Saved my life.
Some of you have asked how it works when we have trips for Small Fry – well, since lots of times brands or events don’t need or want to fly all three of us somewhere we started taking turns! Then we also decided if it’s for work or for play those would be separated. So as far as sponsored trips: Nicole did San Fran and I went to Mexico last year, Jenna recently went to Dominican Republic with hers and so Nicole is next up! Where she will go nobody knows. 😉
So that’s where I am at currently and here’s what’s been on my mind the last few weeks.
Wearing: You’ve seen my last month or so of outfits over on Off Duty, so you know I have really been enjoying my Old Navy haul, ha! It was sort of a temporary wardrobe while my body bounces back and I love not having the pressure of trying on jeans I know aren’t gonna fit. As always shoes are on my mind and I’ve been eyeing these, I can’t think of a more perfect shoe for Fall, Loeffler kills it! This pair is super similar and $200 less and thinking I could swap out the strap for cording and the ankle wrap option!
Reading: I do a lot of scrolling during the couple of late night feedings Raleigh is still insisting on – Instagram gets so old so fast. There’s just a lot of the same thing over and over at times, right? So anytime I can follow an account that switches it up I am excited. Loving @JooleeLauren seriously super witty stuff beautifully illustrated and just dripping with sardonism. I LOVE it! And @everyoutfitonSATC, so funny to have the show analyzed and debunked through its fashion. If you love them.too, let me know cause I feel like we should be friends.
Watching: We recently watched The Night Of which was intense and really entertaining. Have you seen it? Basically revisits the night of a murder and the falsely accused suspect. While I’ve been in Santa Barbara I started devouring Chef’s Table on Netflix and it’s so beautifully done!
Feeling: Sort of panicked that Fall is upon us because that means Winter is bascially here. I’ve so enjoyed having my second Summer baby, it makes for the dreamiest first few months. Raleigh loves spending time outside he seems so content and I’ll be sad not to have that option without more effort (layers.) I love these options for warm one pieces:
