Dillon's Favorites - 5 Weeks Old

It's been 7 days since we brought Dillon home and we are just in heaven having our baby home with us. When I ruptured at 23 weeks and had him at 30 weeks + 3 days, we were flooded with all the scary possibilities that his future would hold. But he sure showed us otherwise. After 32 days in the NICU, we were out the door! Now that we're transitioning to life at home with a 5 week old, I thought I'd share the products that we've been loving now that our NICU journey is over. These are the items we are definitely using on a daily basis. Some of these are featured in his nursery tour and my NICU mama must-haves, but I wanted to share exactly why we've been loving them most recently. I think this would be helpful for all first-time mamas on what really is and isn't necessary when it comes to newborn essentials and what you use the most. I know all babies are different but with Dillon being a preemie, these are the items that have made the transition so easy. I think I may make this a series and share the items we're loving most at different stages of his life. Let me know if you'd like to see that or if you have any questions about anything I've shown. I'm also all ears if there is something I should try incorporating into our routine!

Fall Grays

I've worn the heck out of this top [seen here and here], but I wanted to try to mix it up a bit. I thought pairing it with the herringbone vest and some OTK boots would make it super appropriate for fall. The monochromatic color scheme is perfect for everyday. These sunglasses are my go-tos and some fun silver accessories tied the look all together. These OTK boots are a score from the #nsale and I love how they trick you into thinking I have long legs! All in all, this look is cute and comfortable for everyday and pairs some old and new favorites for the perfect fall ensemble.

Dillon's Star Wars Nursery Reveal!

ICYMI: We got to bring Dillon home yesterday! In honor of this momentous occasion, I am so excited to share Dillon's nursery on the blog today! This was quite the labor of love as we did most of it via FaceTime and online shopping while I was on bed rest. Once we learned it was a boy, we quickly decided on a space/Star Wars theme. Mike was super into the idea and I thought it would be cute for him as we really didn't want to do animals or cars/trains. It seems there are less themes for boys than girls! All things considered, I think it's adorable! God bless online shopping and email. I'm going to do my best to link everything below. Let me know in the comments if I missed something that you're curious about. I hope you love it as much as we do!

Olive + Leopard + A Pop Of White

If there's one thing I love as much as oxblood and leopard, it's olive green and leopard [seen here, here, and here]. This combination is truly one of my favorites and one I gravitate to immediately once the first fall breeze arrives. This dress was an #nsale score and I just love it. The fit is comfortable enough for everyday, but the collar and lace up detail make it interesting. The crossbody bag and flats are my staples for my busy mom life. This is definitely something I can wear in my day to day and I adore it. Side note, this brand of flats is a GAME CHANGER. They're so comfortable but also fold up to fit in your bag. As someone who admittedly doesn't last very long in most heels, having a pair of flats in my bag is a perfect back-up plan.

Dress: WAYF [love this one] // Bag: Forever 21 [similar here] // Flats: Yosi Samra [super similar here] // Watch: Michael Kors // Cuff: Banana Republic // Earrings: Vanessa Mooney [great option] // Sunnies: Coach // Ring: Kendra Scott

Friday Finds

shop favorites from Dillon's closet

Friday, we meet again! In case you missed the update on my instagram, Dillon is now working on bottle feeding! I can't believe he'll be 4 weeks old tomorrow. We're so thrilled with the progress he's making on feeding and hope it means he'll be able to come home soon. It's been a long journey in the NICU already and we're so ready for him to be here with us. BUT we want him 100% ready and healthy when he does! We'll be spending a lot of time with him this weekend as well as installing car seats and setting up the pack n play, etc. Below are some things I loved around the internet these last few days. I hope you all had a great week.


ICYMI: The Shopbop Event of the Season Sale is on now where you can save up to 30% so many amazing brands, like Free People and Sam Edelman.

PSA: My all-time FAVORITE clutch is part of the aforementioned sale. Now's the time to pull the trigger!

Calling all mamas: I've been desperately trying to up my milk supply so I ordered this. Anyone have any experience with it?!

I didn't think I was big into the bomber trend, until I saw this one. And it's under $35! #addtocart


I absolutely loved this fringe sweater on Katie.

Who else can not wait for this!?

Have you tried any of these products?

Crying laughing.

Fall Workwear

Even though I'm on maternity leave, the working girl in me will always love a good office-appropriate ensemble. This look elevates basic jogger-type pants with a smart bag and pumps. The striped top and fun necklace stay true to my style all while being polished enough for the office. As the temps dip, I always loved incorporating fall colors and textures into my work wardrobe. These pants are centuries old but I love finding ways to make them feel new again.
