Printed Skirts for the Win

Leopard spotted midi skirt | Black rubber tevas
Lately I love pairing a comfortable, printed skirt with casual shoes and a tee. So easy, but looks like I put a little effort into my oufit cause, ya know, skirt ;). Keep scrolling for some of my favorite printed skirts that would be so cute styled the same way! xx Jen

4th of July Outfit Ideas

We are headed back (on what’s now become our annual trip!) to Seattle for the 4th! I’m SO excited. My parents live on a little lake outside of Seattle, with the BEST fireworks show. We BBQ and hang at the house and on the lake all day, participate in some fun games/contests on the lake, and then when it gets dark we head out on the boat to the middle of the lake and post…

Favorite Books for Toddlers

Favorite Books for Toddlers
Our girls LOVE their books, and happen to have very STRONG opinions on which are their favorites. Every nap time and bed time (and sometimes throughout the day) we go through a pile of books before we settle on what to read. The good news is that 90% of the time, the girls agree! It’s so cute/hilarious. Here are the books that currently make the cut (and generate lots of engagement) from Romy and Piper!…

Update: Salon Row

White Booties | Matisse | Graphic Tee
Because I hate it when people are purposely vague on social media, I wanted to explain Salon Row on here in a bit more detail! Some of you have seen me posting about it, and missed the explanation. It’s a project Blake and I have been working on as partners with another couple (our dear friends, Louisa and Ever!). Salon Row is a salon suits concept, where salon specialists (hair stylists, nail techs, estheticians, etc.)…

Best Backyard Toys for Toddlers

Best Backyard Toys for Toddlers
To be honest, I always envisioned myself being super picky about what toys we had in our backyard. I wanted them to be wooden, neutral, and aesthetically pleasing. Well, let me tell you…that’s not practical with toddlers, especially when you’re on a budget. I have found a bunch of very affordable toys that the girls love and play with constantly. And guess what – I don’t even care (that much) that they’re very plastic and…

The Best Plain White Tees

Best White Tee
It’s a joke around our house that I’m always looking for a clean white tee shirt to wear. And whenever Blake asks me, “What shirt should I wear?”, my answer is always, “Do you have a white one?” Ha! There’s just something about a good white tee, and over the years I’ve tried SO many, of all different price ranges. Sometimes it’s worth spending a lot to get a good one, but at the end…

Shopbop Secret Sale on Sale

Best Graphic Tees
Shopbop has genuinely become my FAVORITE place to shop. I’ve said this before, but I LOVE that you can use your prime account for free two-day shipping (plus then I don’t even have to put my payment info in so it’s basically free, right? ;)). Returns are crazy easy, and I love the range of brands/price points they carry. They’re having a “Sale on Sale” right now – you can get an extra 25% off…

Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father's Day Gift Ideas
I’m literally ALWAYS last minute. Usually if something takes longer than 2 days to ship, I literally can’t even ;). I started thinking about Father’s Day gifts last week and felt like I had plenty of time, and here we are with just a few days left to make a decision! Here are some ideas of things you can still get in time for this coming Sunday…. I’m a HUGE fan of gifting experiences, so…

Best Graphic Tees RN ;)

Best Graphic Tees
I love me a good graphic tee. It’s comfy for mom life, but also somehow makes me feel the smallest bit edgy and relevant 😂. The best graphic tee is that super soft, legitimately vintage band tee you found in a box of your Dad’s old stuff – even better if you can find a picture of him wearing it at a concert in the 70s! Thrift shops are next best, because let’s be honest…

Favorite Car Seats…and Stuff

I’ve been asked so many questions about our car seat choices, car accessories, positioning the car seats, what kind of car we have, etc. I decided to finally spill all of the info in one post, so here we go! What kind of car seats do you have? Before the girls were born, I picked out the Maxi Cosi Mico Max 30 to start with. We loved it so much (like, a little too much…it…
