If it’s not the costume these days, it’s some other sort of outfit that she styles “all by myself, because I am big mommy!”. Anyone else going through this?! The fashion lover in me adores the fact that she likes to lay out her clothes every night, with every bow, necklace (sometimes two!), right next to it. And that same exact part of me is trying so hard not to cringe over the bright blue & red necklace paired with the glitter pink headband. Pick your battles, right?!!

This week, the girls are rocking the cutest shirts from Little & Mighty. I love the story of this company, three fellow mamas who who came together to celebrate childhood. The shirts they sent over are soft, comfortable, so versatile, and we love the colors! Tees like these are my favorite to pair with tutus or fun bloomers, they work now and will into the warmer weather as well.

The second picture is maybe my favorite example of mom life ever. Never a dull moment. Happiest weekend!!! XO
So before I share the cutest shop for Fashion Friday, three pictures to describe our week. One, our Avalon Elle is officially a crazy lady! As if it wasn’t enough that she’s a crawling champion, she’s now pulling up on everything to stand. This seems way earlier than Waverly did any of this, not sure if it’s a second child thing or what, but this little 5% percentile girlfriend is FIERCE. Time to lower the crib and to babyproof, again! 🙂 Two, the sweetest picture of the girls & my dad. I’m the first one in my family to have kids, watching my parents become grandparents is one of my greatest joys of being a mama. Also, look who is swinging like a big girl, Waverly thought that was just about the coolest thing ever. And three, what I walked into the other morning when I came to get Waverly from her bed. Apparently all of her princesses needed to be tucked in, too.

As far as bottoms, I love a good skinny jean, paired with booties, flats or even the Nikes I linked above (which I recently got & am obsessed with, I want to wear them everyday!). Yeeeet if I’m honest, more often than not lately, all I want to do is wear leggings. I never really wore them before I was pregnant, but I’m officially converted, jeans are just not even close to as comfy.
It’s probably really bad when you think that wearing jeans is dressed up.
So here is my question to you! What leggings are your favorite?! I loved these while pregnant, but have yet to find a pair I like as much for non-maternity, & I definitely don’t want to wear maternity leggings 7 months postpartum. I’m looking for some that aren’t cotton or see through, that wash well, and that don’t look like work out leggings, if that makes sense. Please share if you have a fave!
And happy halfway through the week! XO
On a much more positive note, the girls have been so good lately, we’ve had a few exciting milestones (Avalon is crawling quicker than ever & likes food! A lot!), and Waverly has just been all around GOOD. We are thinking the second half of three might just be our sweet spot! The whole “drop the nap” situation is still a work in progress, but we are getting there. And their relationship is just cuter than ever lately, Waverly BEGS me to wake Avalon up every morning (um, don’t you know you don’t wake a sleeping baby!), and when Waverly fell asleep on the couch this week, Avalon spent the entire time staring at her waiting for her to wake up. Sweetest!

And let’s just keep that mindset until you are at least 16, ok?!
I’m super excited to share the cutest Etsy shop with you for Fashion Friday today, I collaborated with Little Bird Tuscan on a few of Avalon’s Christmas gifts & they are the cutest. We got these teethers, which we love, Avalon always has to have something to put in her mouth and these are perfect. They also sent us the bib, another must-have, for soooo much drool. We love, love the prints, you must check out their shop!
