Last Days of Summer








I'm soaking up these last days of summer and spending lots of time walking and exploring the great NYC outdoors with Ali. We're also finally headed back to the beach for the holiday weekend and I'm going to spend a few extra days there while K heads back to the city for work. I'm excited to introduce Ali to the sand and the sea but a bit nervous about the 4+ hour car drive, the change of scenery (for her) and how she will react to it all. She's a big girl now at 6 weeks so I hope that by sticking to her routine and bringing lots of familiar things from home (her bedtime books, toys and little stuffed animals) we'll make the vacation a smooth and really fun one. Check back in tomorrow for a quick guide on what I'm packing for Baby Ali and for myself as this list is a BIG one (babies really need so.much.stuff! Where are you headed for the last holiday weekend of summer?

Easy Breezy





I can't believe September is already here! Keeping it short and sweet this morning as I'm absolutely exhausted. I present to you my uniform as of late - a sleeveless button down, comfy denim and even comfier flats. There's a ton of Equipment pieces on sale at Nordstrom and this was a fantastic find for less than $60. It's a shirt I know I'll get a ton of wear out of - just like every other Equipment top I own.




Top: Equipment (on sale! dress version here; also love this one)
Jeans: Current Elliott (on sale! also here)
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (also love these)

Mommy and Me Style: Black and White


I don't particularly love when mommy and baby wear the same exact thing (of course, in different sizes) but I do love when mommy and me styles are complimentary. I can't wait to dress up Ali in some of the little clothes we have in her closet - a little Stella Kids, some EGG by Susan Lazar and even some of the softest Splendid rompers I found. She just needs to grow a teeny bit more so the mommy and me styles can come out to play. In the meantime, here's a little mommy and me style inspiration in my favorite color combination - black and white.



Mommy:
Sunglasses: RayBan
Bag: Chloe
Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar for less)
Bracelet: Jennifer Fisher

Baby:
Dress: Baby Gap (30% off with code HAPPY)
Shoes: Etsy
