side split

Jacket:  J.Crew  |  Sweater:  asos  |  Tank:  Target  |  Sunnies:  Le Specs  |  Shoes:  asos  |  Denim:  Gap  |  Necklace:  Gorjana  |  Ring:  Gorjana  |  Earrings:  Amazon/Lola Saratoga


Nursing sweaters/tops just aren't cute and everything is GREY!  Luckily I found this one in a springtime lavender color.  It works with nursing tanks very well.  I may not find many nursing tops like this, but I'll keep my eye out for those other sweaters in general that may open on the side and give a little room for nursing.  I wore this one quiet frequently recently to Lake George, Easter brunch and other outings, but for the love of me, still only found time to take photos in my hood...go figure.  Just living in the moment I guess and just trying to find tops that work for nursing!

strolling style

Sweater:  Gap  |  Leggings:  Gap  |  Vest:  J.Crew  |  Sunnies:  Le Specs  |  Kicks:  Nike (similar here)  Stroller:  Uppababy  |  Tumbler:  Yeti  |


Just like shopping for maternity clothes before, shopping for nursing items is just about as fun.  I'm not back to my size in pants or less, which is fine, that's not the issue as it has only been about 4 weeks, but HOLY COW, thinking of tops to wear or finding tops to wear now is even more difficult.  Obviously primarily due to nursing.  I've scoped out some comfortable easy to wash sweaters and add the nursing tanks or nursing bras underneath.  I'm currently adding sweaters with open side slits and button downs.  Bring on the layers!

I've been trying to walk a bit everyday since we got out to the hospital.  I'm now at the point where I know I can comfortably walk downtown (a mile there and back) and perhaps even further... I just haven't made it with timing.  I plan on starting workouts next week, a bit early from being "cleared," but I feel great and I'm listening to my body!  If I'm not walking I'm trying to get out and about with errands or appointments and sometimes can't fit our walks into the schedule, but soon enough we will be able to do both I'm sure!  The stroller has worked out great so far.  We are still getting the hang of  using the various attachments, but I can't say a bad thing about it!  More details/reviews to come!

Liam's Nursery Reveal

I know I should be sharing details about Liam, but we haven't taken any family photos and it's just been so busy, that I haven't gotten to it.  I have shared a few pictures on Instagram, but have decided to actually share the nursery...three weeks later and I've finally completed it.  I pulled together some last items to really be able to hang, adjust and set up.  I didn't want to go too much with a theme as I know I'll want him to grow into it or next baby to be able to go into the room easily, but I did want to keep it fairly neutral along with some baseball items.  I did hold off on a rug as the floors turned out great and I didn't want it to be too busy!  Here's a list of some items I've snagged to complete the room.

Rattan Mirrors:  I've had sitting in the guest room, but they are from Target
Floating Shelves:  Target (stained a bit darker as they are real wood).  Shelves I'll add and design a bit more on over the next months as I like the room to grow a bit further over time.
Lamp:  Target
Changing Pad Cover:  Spearmint Love
Table:  Found on a whim at Target, as I first purchased this and exchanged them out
Pouf:  Wayfair
Chair:  Wayfair
Lion/Lamb Pictures:  Amazon (found some at TJ's, but larger size) as Liam was born in March!  I liked the March saying, "in like a lion, out like a lamb."
Mobile:  I made, purchased the bat from Amazon and the felt garland from Etsy

I've moved the humidifier into our room for the time being and have also debated moving the white noise machine as well, but we're not doing too bad.  The book collection is growing quickly as I have gravitated toward gifting him books (ie:  Easter) at least until he's older.  I wanted to share the whole room as I know I've given some sneak peeks.  Let me know if you have any questions on any items I haven't listed!
