Roxy dress.  Super cute dress that easy to throw on with some flip flops and go!  And for less than $50?!!

Striped linen top.   I so want to wear this top with white skinny jeans or white shorts for summer outings.

Ray-Ban aviators.  Simple and classic and a must have for sunny days and overly-tired mornings.

Rebecca Minkoff Darren Backpack. I just bought this backpack and I am loving it. I wanted a smaller backpack to wear everyday – with kiddos it’s just easier than a purse!

Senso Floyd Sandals. Tis the season for sandals! Love these.

Solid & Striped One piece. The perfect 4th of July swimsuit!! Order now to get it in time for all of your parties!

Summer is officially here!  Living in San Francisco, I miss the hot Texas sun of my hometown from time to time.  Thankfully though, Napa is just a short drive away – where it is warm and sunny and stocked with wine!  I’ve been day dreaming of sunny summer days and scouting some fun summer finds online…

Maternity Essentials

Being that this is my third pregnancy – I have down to a science what I like and don’t like during pregnancy and immediately post pregnancy. I thought I would share some of my tried and true basic must- haves.

Almost 28 weeks and still wearing one of my favorite dresses for pre/during/and post pregnancy! What makes it even more amazing–it has POCKETS! Oh…and it’s on sale for $35.

  1. Palmers Cocoa Butter Stretch Mark Lotion & Cream. There is nothing better than this stuff. I have slathered it on myself for all of my pregnancies and it moisturizes my skin without breaking it out or giving me any kind of weird pregnancy reaction. I swear by this stuff. Every time I take a shower I slather it on. It’s a process to cover all the new surface area 😉 but I promise, it’s worth it.
  2. Belly Support Belt. There are two that I like and love- this one that I can wear under my clothes any time I’m needing just a little extra support- and this one that I wear when I’m working out because it gives me enough support for running etc.
  3. Body Pillow. Let’s be honest- sleeping is tough while pregnant. Between the aches and pains, constantly having to get up to go to the bathroom, and someone kicking you from the inside- anything to help me fall asleep and stay asleep is well worth the $. This pillow is dreamy. It supports in all the right places.
  4. BeMaternity BeBand. This is great for several reasons- while you still may be able to fit in to some of your pants, you may not be able to button them. Slip this on and it takes care of that problem! It’s second purpose is- later on when you belly button likes to show through clothes… wear this and it smooths out any lumps and bumps under a tighter fitting top or dress!
  5. Old Navy & Target Tanks. These are simple and cheap. I wear these under kimonos, over bikinis, with my workout shorts – you name it, it’s my go-to maternity top. They are comfy, stretchy and cheap. Plus, they come in a million colors…however, I seem to own just the black and grey ones.
  6. Tote Savvy. Now these are just amazing. I hate having to buy stuff just for one purpose – i.e. a diaper bag – these amazing things turn any bag into a diaper bag! I can use any of my oversized bags or backpacks and have them perfectly organized for baby! Now… I don’t have one YET- they weren’t around when my first two were born- but my sister has one and uses it daily. I can’t wait to get the mini one for my backpack and the original for my totes!
  7. Post baby support. Ok. I can not say enough about this- and because of that, I’m just going to say, for now, you need to purchase this. I will do more on post baby girdles/binders once baby is here but until then, if you are expecting, just take my word for it and buy yourself these two. The first is the Belly Bandit Bamboo wrap. I wear this one immediately after baby- when I am still in the hospital. I have csections and tell every mama I know that is having a csection how necessary this sucker is. The second one is for a few weeks after when my swelling has gone down a bit and I’m feeling a little more comfortable. It is the Bellefit Postpartum Corset and I wear it morning and night for a couple months (I do take it off from time to time just for a breather- obviously) I know it is pricey but it is well worth it. I promise.

I promise that you will love ALL of these items. They are sure to make your pregnancy and post-pregnancy better/easier! Enjoy!

Red, White, & Blue

The 4th of July is around the corner! I don’t know about you but I LOVE this holiday. The family time, usually in the sun- typically surrounded by water – with yummy food, has all my favorite things in one day.

dress | lace kimono | shorts | tank top | shoes | premium v | star scarf

And look at how maternity friendly a kimono is!! You can still feel put together while almost 7 months pregnant.


I thought I would share some cute 4th of July looks for the family today as well as some easy recipes (because no one wants to be slaving away in the kitchen when they could be enjoying the sunshine!) that are festive and fun for the parties!

Ash’s obsessions

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 4.27.34 PM

Erin + Ali Gustavia Dress.  Summer is here!!!  Nothing beats a bright white flirty sun dress.

Shiri sandal.  And with those summer sun dresses these easy slip-on sandals would be perfect!  And they’d be just as cute with denim cut offs or linen shorts.

Sunkissed cotton romper.  Whether worn over a bikini to the pool, or on its own to the farmer’s market, this romper is too cute.

Aj’s obsessions

Beach/ Picnic Blanket. I bought this as just an add on to an amazon order I placed a couple weeks ago, and my daughter (and me) are obsessed with it. For only $15 it has been the perfect fun summer blanket for picnics, the pool, or just lunch on the floor!

VS Strappy Triangle Sports Bra. I have it and I love it. Now, it’s not a running bra, (obviously!) it’s for super low impact. Did I mention its $10!

Anthro Amalia Eyelet Dress.  Gorgeous summer dress. Ash and I love a pretty white dress and Anthropologie never disapopints in having several to pick from.
