Happy Memorial Day weekend! I’m a big fan of this Americana theme year round, but it’s especially fun to get in the spirit this weekend. There are a ton of sales going on, so I thought I would round up some great buys that fit the American theme– red, white, blue, stripes and natural materials. These are also all great for the Fourth!
I posted this photo to instagram and got a lot of questions from other pregnant mamas about the dress I’m wearing (it also comes in a pretty red color). It’s extremely flowy, and therefore very bump-friendly! So, I thought I’d round up a few favorites I have found for spring and summer– none are maternity specific, but all should fit a baby bump nicely. This also makes them perfect for after baby and beyond… better to spend on non-maternity so you can get more use out of them!
Mother’s Day is right around the corner! Whether or not you’re able to celebrate in person with your mom this year, it’s always important to gift her a little something to let her know how much you appreciate her. These ideas also work great for your sister, aunt, cousin, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, friend… or even yourself. Don’t forget about yourself!
I had so much fun putting Henry’s nursery together. I wanted a look that wasn’t too babyish so that we could make some of the pieces last through his “big boy” room. We went Ralph Lauren nautical – a look that will probably last with him for a while (hope ya like it, Henry!) My favorite piece is the antique pine bench. My mom bought it over 25 years ago – it got a lot of love in my childhood home and then “visited” our family friends house in Napa for the past 15 or so years. Now, it fits perfectly into Henry’s nursery and is serving as a little bookshelf.
