Hers + Mine :: Navy Sneakers

A nice, neutral sneaker that transitions well between seasons is exactly what I'm on the market for. I've chosen this pair by Cienta Kids for my daugther and I'm eyeing this lace-up by Tretorn for myself..

Current Obsession: Drawstring Pants

I should probably have a disclaimer with this "current obessesion" blog post because I'm typing it at seven months pregnant when barely nothing in my wardrobe fits -- but for some reason, I'm pretty sure I'd be crushing over this type of pant if I was my normal size. I say this because I hate buying maternity clothes and desparately seek out wardrobe staples that will cross over post-patrum. So ta-da!  I gave this pair of Jcrew linen drawstring pants a go and have been so glad I did. Now I'm scouring the internet for more chic drawstring options..

This pair I found during the Steven Alan online sale by Sessun...

Ohhh and this chambray pair, also from Jcrew..


Coming Soon to Etsy Shop: Women's Silk Tunic

I made a batch of my favorite summer tunic in this lovely (limited edition) grey silk fabric -- available next week in my etsy shop. Simply put, it's buttery. I'm typically a big fan of a tunic but it's also working really well right now for my growing baby bump. It's light-weight, comfy, and chic.

I've had interest in the pattern that I used for this tunic. It's actually my pattern and hope to have it available to purchase as a PDF download in the coming weeks.


Wear It

The temps may be inching up to summer heat, but I'm always on the hunt for a light-weight cardigan. Is it just me, or do restaraunts and stores abuse the air conditioner during summer months? I usually keep something for my arms stored away in my purse at all times..

Love this from Muji...and paired with a simple sandal...perfection.



Hers + Mine :: Native Shoes

We're ready for spring. Period. Love these slip-ons by Native Shoes.


Muji Monotones

I'm pretty sure I could slip into the Muji pieces below and call it my uniform for winter (except when it's terribly cold and I need something more for my feet). A tunic, leggings, and super comfy sweater are staples for me...what about you?


My Must Have Boot

This fall I decided it was time to look for a new pair boots. Easy, yes? Well, not necessarily. I feel like I always have a long list of things I'm looking for in shoes -- comfort, style, color, ease, longetivity..especially in a cooler weather shoe.

I happened upon this crazy for  you boot by Seychelles and have officially deemed it my must have shoe this fall. I have it in black but am contemplating a purchase in the whiskey color above..

Do you have a favorite boot/shoe? I'd love to hear...

Tiny Metallic Boots

Perfect pair of fall boots from Zara for my new walker. There is not really much to say here except YES. Oh, and do they come in my size?
