Over the weekend we ventured out to Coronado Island for a walk along the beach to watch the sunset. I love living so close to the beach. Coronado is one of our favorite beaches here in San Diego because of how clean and quiet it is. There’s a dog beach on one end that we used to take Molli to all the time and on the other end is Hotel Del Coronado, they usually have an event going on over there or some really cool sand castles. It’s a prime people watching location. ;)

We just got this muslin carseat cover from Bebe au Lait as part of their collab with Sofie la Girafe and I love using it to cover Emma up when we’re out and about. I really like how easy it is to zip up and close and the simple snap-on install!


I am dying over these sunglasses we got for Emma. I was so surprised she actually kept them on for most of the trip out, too!

Also, how cute is this jumpsuit? I’m obsessed. I bought it last year from Madewell right before I got pregnant so I couldn’t wear it that long and now I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe because I can fit into my old clothes again! Super last minute I threw this shirt on from Lou and Grey under it and I think it goes pretty well. Definitely not ideal for breastfeeding so I had to pump before we went out but I’m that much closer to feeling like my normal self again.

I’m so excited to start a new series here on the blog showcasing outfits for my little mini. Now that it’s starting to warm up I’ve been picking through all of Emma’s clothes and storing away everything that she’s outgrown or that it’s too hot for. We don’t really have a lot of clothes for her outside of a handful of basic onesies and some dresses so here are some outfits I’m eyeing for our little lady for the summertime! I get so excited shopping for her, I can’t help myself. Also, I’m totally a sucker for stripes and polka dots for myself and clearly for my daughter ;)

Aren’t those swims suits freaking adorable? I love the ice cream cone haha I wish they made that in adult sizes!

A couple of weeks ago Aaron and I had some family photos taken with Emma. It’s like pulling teeth to convince Aaron to get photos taken but I’m so glad we got these done! We met up with my friend Becky from Limelife Photography one evening and she snapped some photos of us while we took a stroll through this woodsy trail. I love how these photos aren’t forced at all and I’m so surprised there’s actually photos of Emma looking at the camera and not wiggling, haha. Thank you Becky!! We love these photos so much I can’t wait to frame a bunch and put them all over the house.

After almost a year of living in our house we’ve been slowly making updates and we finally got around to putting up this floating credenza in the living room over the weekend. I’m so in love with how it turned out! It’s not completely finished, we’re planning on putting a slab of wood on the top and sides of it to match our dining room table and bed frame but that will come at another time since this took up most of our weekend. On top of it we’ve been dealing with a grumpy baby and 4 month sleep regression so we’re pretty dang exhausted and this is pretty much the nicest area of the house at the moment. Although it’s taken almost a year to fill out the house with furniture its been worth the wait and I’m glad we took our time finding pieces that we love. Anywho, I wanted to pop in and share some things I’ve been loving lately!

Good American jeans. / I was a little skeptical about buying these jeans because of the price but they’re worth every penny. These jeans fit like a glove! I’ve been feeling like I’m going through a mid life crisis of sorts but with clothing my new mom-bod(mama’s please tell me I’m not alone!?) but these hug in all the right places. I’ve worn them for probably 25 out of the last 30 days haha.

Youth To The People age prevention cleanser / This baby is aging me. I’ve never felt like I needed to buy age-preventing washes or moisturizers until this year and I’m super happy with this face wash. A friend of mine told me she’s been using it for awhile and has seen a noticeable difference in the fine lines on her forehead which is super exciting. I’ve been using it for a week now and I feel like my face overall just feels a little brighter. I love the light scent and how my face doesn’t feel super dry after using it. Will report back after a few months of using it.

Jennas Kitchen tumbler / This water tumbler is everything. They’re sold out of it until July, sadly, but I’ve been loving this thing. I don’t know what it is about it but I’ve been drinking so much water and love that it keeps my water cold all day. Aaron has even been asking me to get him one too haha July can’t come soon enough!

Kristin Ess dry shampoo / Last week I got some longish bangs and needed a new dry shampoo to try out. I normally use this one from Living Proof but it’s kinda pricey and I feel like I always run out of it fast. I’ve seen Kristin Ess products all over my instagram(the packaging for her shampoo/conditioner is SO pretty) so I was excited to try this stuff. It did a really good job of absorbing the oils in my hair and I LOVE the smell of it. One of my complaints about the Living Proof one I used was the smell so this was a nice surprise.

Native deodorant / I’ve been on the hunt for a natural deodorant that WORKS and this one is it. I got it in their Coconut & Vanilla scent and it smells incredible. I seriously wish they made this into a lotion because it smells that good. Love that it’s aluminum free as well.
