little man’s shoes


so speaking of shoes, i think it’s about time to get rwd a pair. i initially bought him the zuzii boots, which ha the time came and past where they would fit him and he actually never wore them =/ but they’re adorable and i’m holding out hope that should we have a second bebe we’ll use them then ;)

BUT we’re not close to taking steps yet, but i would like to have some sort of sun protection for him this summer and i’m debating between the following:

the zuzii shoe

the pedi peds christopher

..what do you think? do you have a favorite babe shoe brand, that i’m missing out on?

…and then of course i can’t wait until he can fit into tiny toms! ;)

…i also broke down and had to buy the zuzii sandals today, which obviously are just for fun, since not functional for moving around/nor good for sun protection, but his fred flinstone feet will be AMAZING in them




bensimon vs toms


so i love my bensimon shoes. over the past two years i’ve bought the lace-ups, these hightops and just this morning purchased the slip-ons. and while i’m in a lil bit of a spoil myself with some online shopping while little man takes a nap sort of a mood…i was just going to get a new pair of toms and realized…are they too similiar?

what do you think? bensimon vs toms, which one wins…or are they equally good and worth a double-down? …i actually think if i add a new pair of toms to my shoe collection, i’ll end up getting the cordones, but…




more like fabulously ghetto!

so at the sample sale, miss heidi hebb was rocking the sally hansen salon effects real nail polish strips…so i immediately stopped by walgreens on the way home and picked some the “electric shock” and “check it out” to wear at krist’s baby shower yesterday…and last night as i was catching up on my google reader, i saw a cup of jo posted about them on thursday as well.

so while sticker nail strips seem pretty ghetto (though I totally love them ha) turns out they may actually be quite fabulous? ;)




ombre hombre. ;)

so i ombre’d up my hair…it’s super subtle and reminds me of a summer dirty beach look – but i kinda love it :) i followed this tutorial. (p.s. how cute is that girl!?)

check it.


might be getting ahead of myself


but i can’t wait until rocco is older. i am totally going to buy him these for our trips to the zoo, park, etc ;)


maternity & style?


so…i’m really wondering if it’s possible to stay stylish during your pregnancy. i mean, i guess, i know it can be done… i’ve seen other women do it (jora + cole) but ha so help me, it really feels like quite the feat lately. and on top of that i feel like it’s two separate up-hill battles i’m facing. the first being finishing out this preggo time and then the second being having good comfy options for afterwards when you’re a zombie, battling leaking & all the new bodily functions/liquids that come along with yourself just giving birth and the new babe you’re carrying around ;) …on the outside.

i’ve already surpassed the stage of being able to wear my old pants w/ a bella band (they don’t fit over my thighs or ass any longer) and many of my shirts just show off a lil too much lower belly for me to feel socially acceptable going out in public (sorry jill – i know, i still wear them to work out in) and as i’m in these last two months – feeling big and just generally starting to hit the uncomfortable stage – i can’t help but want to simply still feel good, pretty, fit, & stylee still.

after reading a couple posts online i’ve decided one thing i’m for sure going to treat myself to (along with pre-natal massages weekly from here until the end) is a nice set of pajama’s and a nice silk robe. because well, let’s face it, i’ve come to accept that the chances of getting really dressed (1. considering i’ll be sleeping 2 hrs at a time and 2. because well it’s hard enough for me to really break out of the sweats during the winter cozy months wrapped up in a blanket at home anyway) are going to be slim to none. *for the first week or two only people, don’t worry i’m not going to give up on life as a whole, ha…just going to take advantage of being home, staying home, and enjoying my new lil grom those first precious weeks*

so i’m currently on the hunt. does anyone have any great pj recommendations? i just bought this set from old navy – but i’d like to spoil myself with a nice set…

i also just bought myself this silk kaftan off etsy…which may not necessarily be easy to nurse in – but hopefully will be comfy and make me feel like i’m floating around the casa (again on my 2 hrs of sleep) ;) heeh.. and i’d still like specifically to get a silk robe to throw over my nursing pj’s, sweats, etc… any suggestions? i’ve been looking at anthro’s but nothing is standing out to me…


hmmm…with so many great mom sites out there and trendy moms that i personally know-why does this feel so hard all of a sudden? what am i missing?…


omg. yes please


so sarah just sent over these boots…and seriously!? umm..yes please.

these boots are so flipping adorable and truly i think could work for a lil buddy or a lil pretty lady. ha and the best part would be if they went all the way up to their chubby little knees!

and these are also pretty awesome ~ ha i can picture these lil elf shoes w/ a gnome hat :) ohhhh mannnn… hah.

and if i were having a summer babe i’d be all over these sandals a well
