friday favorites

Happy Friday! I can't believe we're already a week into May and that Sunday is Mother's Day! Last year my parents were actually on a cruise and I was 23 weeks pregnant with Poppy so Dustin, Olivia and I had a low key day together and it was really nice. This year we'll just be going to brunch with my parents and then hopefully spending the rest of the day outside. We are getting a new fence next week and have been wanting to start gardening and updating our landscaping so the boys might tackle that on Sunday while my Mama and I relax with the girls! ;)

Here are a few things I've been loving lately to kick off your weekend!

1 // As a Mom of two little girls {who are just so much fun to dress}, I feel like I so often forget about finding cute & comfortable pieces for myself. Since most days are spent at home, it's easy to forget how good I feel when I dress in clothes other than yoga pants and tee shirts. My go-to place lately for clothes for myself has been Piper & Scoot. I picked up some gorgeous floral dresses for our photos last weekend & our family session coming up in June that are seriously a dream come true. Many of their pieces are nursing-friendly and maternity friendly {when you size up}, plus I love that everything is really affordable. They offer free U.S. shipping on every order and with each order placed, you receive a 10% off code for your next purchase in your emailed receipt. So...hint hint, buy one thing you love and then using your code, grab another! This High-Lo floral dress is pictured above but I also love this mint one here & this top. They release new pieces often but they tend to sell out fast because they're just that good.

2 // We are taking a few trips this summer with the girls and I am starting to think ahead now of what exactly we'll be needing to bring along for them. These ubbi tweat snack containers are my new go-to for packing my diaper bag or for a trip. Unlike ones we've had previously, these actually have a lid that snaps shut but still have an opening that a child can reach through for easy snack access. That way I can pack up what I need ahead of time, throw it in my diaper bag and it's set to go without getting stale. Our favorite thing to fill snack cups with for Olivia are animal crackers or trail mix. Poppy mostly just gets puffs these days but girlfriend loves them just the same.


3 // I have been on the search for ankle boots for sometime now and every pair I found was so uncomfortable. I came across these last weekend and they were everything I wanted in a low boot but still so so comfy. Because of the slit in the side, they don't hurt or press against your ankles when you walk. I could seriously wear them all day! I bought them in taupe but they also come in black.

4 // You guys know I love everything floral, even when it comes to my laptop screen, and ever since I can remember I've loved the free "dress your tech" downloads from Design Love Fest. You can find countless styles here with new ones added each week but this set of two floral borders is one of my favorites. I have one on my screen now and love opening my computer and seeing it every day! It's all about the little things, right?!


5 // Last but not least, I recently custom designed wooden love letters for our girls in collaboration with My Deerling Made. I absolutely love how they turned out and am so excited to have them hanging up in the girls' rooms. If you love rustic wood signs as much as I do, be sure to enter to win a $75 shop credit to @mydeerlingmade over on my instagram page here! Giveaway ends Tuesday May 11.

Have the best weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all you Mamas & Mamas-to-be!! XO
