Lily Jade Giveaway || Sunday Swoon

Over the winter, I was introduced to an amazing designer diaper bag by Lily Jade.  I declared it my everything bag, took it with me everywhere and marveled at how it provided a pocket for every compartment of my life.  I thought that I was hooked solely on the Caroline Bag, but then the Sarah Grace made its way to me this summer.

In Gold.  Glorious Gold.

Lily Jade Designer Diaper Bag

I’m still marveling at how much I can fit into my Lily Jade bags and how organized the removable baby bag insert keeps me.

The Sarah Grace is lovely with well structured top handles and a cross body strap.  And the pretty gold hue matches so many of my favorite things.

Back to School Cool with p.s. from aéropostale

The other day, when I was in a local craft store with my daughter we found ourselves smack in the middle of a Halloween display.  She captured my sentiments perfectly when she yelled “THIS IS BANANAS – you need to tell them it’s SUMMER!!!

We still have a lot of warm-weather fun to pack in before the autumn breezes head our way, but preparing for back-to-school ahead of time saves my sanity in the long run. Last month, we introduced our partnership with p.s. from aéropostale and their back-to-school collections are just as amazing as their summer options.  We love their interpretation of the animal trend for girls and their layering options for boys are comfortable, stylish and well made. The accessories are among my favorites too!

For now, I’d like to think of these great fall finds as perfect summer layering options.  And when the time comes they will keep my little ones stylishly warm too.  p.s. from aéropostale  now features helpful community boards in stores featuring style inspiration and even a craft of the month.  I sometimes shop in the boys department for my daughter and appreciate their 2 ways – 2 wear suggestions.  I picked up the above hats for both kiddos in the boys section and happen to adore the not-too-matchy-matchy yet unified look!

Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that I’m no longer the mother of a tiny little girl.  This one continues to surprise me with her wisdom and foresight and endless questions.  Questions that leave me constantly searching for answers – so that I can answer her with truths and assure her that she will be forever […]

Endless Summer with Taste of Nature

taste of nature 4

The theme around here lately seems to always return to the full days of fun that we are having this summer.  It really is hard to believe just how much we pack into a single day and I’d like to think only of our endless summer before autumn breezes and academic shuffles creep back in.  […]

Summer Learning || Sunday Swoon

summer learning workbooks,

The kiddos are really enjoying their time away form a structured classroom.  They deserve and need a break – but the learning must always continue.  Teachable moments are naturally interwoven into our everyday and I’ve found establishing a regular summer learning routine helpful.  I purchased a bunch of workbooks at our local Barnes & Nobel […]
