She’s had a lot to say this past week. A conversation cannot be held without her chiming in and I love it.
The amount of people on Instagram is crazy. I have to admit, it’s my favorite social media site. Especially now that they added Insta Stories. I never went to the Snap Chat dark side; but now I feel like I can participate in the “in the now” documentation.
Most of the accounts I follow are fellow mothers. It really builds a sense of community. Suddenly I realize that I’m not the only one with a crazy three-year-old or the only one that thinks a solo trip to Target is like a spa day.
So here are some Insta-moms I’m loving . . . .
I’ve actually been reading her blog for a couple of years now. She’s honest, funny and refreshing. Now that I have a daughter, I’m constantly looking at her photos for cute outfit ideas. She also throws the cutest parties and decorates in a cool and approachable way.

Many of you have already seen it (I hear it’s on Hulu!) but if you haven’t, Mazzy, Harlow and I were featured in a video for @Aetna! They followed me around for an entire day while I talked about balancing work, family and a few mindful moments too. The video mixes in some home videos I have of the girls and I couldn’t be happier with how it all came together! Check it out on my blog- link in bio. #takeamoment #sponsored

I want this whole outfit (heart eyes).
I’m currently in a wardrobe rut. I still haven’t lost all my baby weight, so I can’t wear all my clothes yet. Besides that, since I cleaned out about 80% of my clothes, I still haven’t gotten all of the pieces I need and/or want.
I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, but the thing with living in San Diego is our weather is generally the same year round. With the exception of some 60 degree weather during Winter – it’s hilarious because everyone pulls out their scarves and boots (I’m guilty of this). It wasn’t until I went to Amsterdam did I learn what “cold” was.
I’m also a big fan of French everyday-wear. So simple and chic. My style mostly resembles this type of wardrobe. Although sometimes I see something flowery or bright and although it’s not “me,” I contemplate buying it. Or I’ll see some cute outfit on a woman walking by and think,”I wish I could pull that off.”
So, since I’m not really in a place to go on a crazy shopping spree, I though I would pull together some wardrobe inspiration; a combination of things I would totally wear and things I wish I could.
This little beauty turned 3 months this passed weekend. She loves socializing and is a total flirt with her little smile. She loves watching Declan play and will even get mad if she’s laying down and can’t see him.
She wakes up about twice a night to eat, but will go back to sleep. She’s only drinking milk right now, but I can tell she’s eager to eat more.
She can’t roll over on her own yet, but she’s really good at holding her head up. And although she’s filling in, she’s still petite and wearing 0-3 month clothes.
We love you, hermosa.
I blame the Mad Men crew for making me really want a classy bar cart parked in my house. I’ve also read that having a bar cart in you home is a grown-up thing to do. I also have to admit that when I purchased this IKEA cart for Declan’s baby feeding items, I secretly wanted to convert it to a bar cart.
However, the truth is, I don’t really have space for one in our apartment right now. And even if I did, I’m not sure it would be safe with a wild toddler and an infant that will be walking in no time. So I’ve been doing some research on bar cart alternatives. I think I’ll end up making a square in an IKEA Kallax bookshelf a mini bar area; but a girl can dream for the future . . . .
