Motherhood Update: Nate is 4 months!

August 24, 2016

We had our 4month Pediatrician check up yesterday:

Weight: 16.9 lbs/53rd | Height: 26"/93rd percentile.

Nate turns 4 months today, which as any parent would say about their child, is crazy! I'm trying so hard to soak up each and every moment because I've never really realized, until now, JUST how quickly life flies by. He's truly the best baby, pretty much always happy unless he's tired or hungry. Being a new mom has been nothing short of amazing, but naturally, it comes with it's challenges and I've learned, you figure it out as you go.


Carroll Gardens {Weekend Wear}

August 22, 2016

This past weekend was spent hanging with the family, going by our friends pool and enjoying a few indulgent meals, including the most incredible blueberry pancakes. The past few months, since having Nate, I have been trying to eat a bit healthier than I have in the past. I've always been fairly healthy, but this time around with having some baby weight to lose, I've been a little more strict.


Sealed with a Bow

August 18, 2016

My closet is filled with a variety of white button downs, all in varying shapes, styles and fabrics. One may accuse me of having a bit of an obsession, but truth be told, they all serve a different purpose and I wear each and every one. One that was missing, and I didn't even know it, was a white button down with a removable bow addition. What I love about this one is that it can be worn as a bow or a tie, immediately taking it from feminine to a bit more masculine. Of course if you're a good DIY'er, this is probably something you can create at home. Just a thought! I finished the outfit off with this new jeweled beauty from Kate Spade, 'the Lietta' bag.

I always say that if I could live in any decade when it came to fashion, it would be the 70's….

how to avoid damage from using heat to your hair

Lessons in Hair Care

August 12, 2016

Last year, I remember sitting at the Nexxus salon and chatting with the talented woman who was blow drying my hair. I was venting to her how I was in a bit of a catch 22: I didn't want to always rely on heat to style my hair, but if I let it simply air dry, it would look like a frizzy mess. Side note, that's also part of the reason why I wear it up so often. I'll style my hair, leave it down for a few days and then once it gets oily, I'll throw it up in a low or high bun.

Off the Shoulder

August 10, 2016

I got both of these pieces over a month ago and finally got around to wearing them over the weekend. What I love most about this dress is that it's perfect for the day but easily transitions into a night time look with a dressier heel, which I wore to party this same night. I had every intention of photographing both looks to show "day into night," but time escaped me. Maybe this weekend if you're interested?!
PS: We finally started watching the highly hyped about Stranger Things and I have to say, we're so into it!
