The Softest Yoga Gear

top c/o | leggings c/o | jacket c/o | sunglasses | nikes

Brooke has mentioned how comfortable the Roshe Run sneakers are so I decided to try them out. O-M-G she wasn't lying. These are seriously the most comfortable sneaker I've ever worn. Thinking about getting them in this color too since I wear them everyday! My top is by Beyond Yoga, one of my new favorite brands for yoga wear. It's super soft and has support in the belly but isn't too tight and moves with you. I have a pair of leggings too and they feel like butter! I'm eyeing these leggings and this top for postpartum...I'm sure I will be living in comfies! If you're into fun patterns you need to stock up on Prismsport activewear. How cool are these python leggings? Also loving this print!

P.S - I got some seriously crazy tan lines while I was in Vegas (you can see them on my hands and shoulders). No lie, I looked like I rolled in a fire! It looks WAY better then it did last week. That desert sun is no joke!

Sunday Night Online Shopping Sesh

Currently cuddled up on the couch listening to the rain and doing some online shopping....perfect way to end the weekend! This dress and tote are perfect for a beach vacay (if I only had one planned!) and blush and lipstick add a fun pop of color for summer. These sandals are in my Nordy's cart (only $79!) along with these chic wedges.

Mother Lover

Mother's Day is coming up (in 2 weeks), and we've rounded up a few of our favorite things (and a few things we're hoping for). Even if you're not a mama or mama-to-be, it's always a great time to #treatyoself while picking up something for your own mom. 

There's nothing more sentimental than personalized jewelry, we love love love it! The short necklace is by Maya Brenner - she has so many great designs. I have the two-letter necklace, and really want to snag these earrings as well. The longer necklace is from Irina Victoria, and I love that you can continue to add discs as your family grows - such a great idea. Until May 10th, you can get 15% off this necklace (and any additional charms you add) by using the code: 143MOM. 

Ooooooh you know we love a good pair of sneakers! Talk about the perfect gift to get you motivated to get with it and get in shape (I'll take all the motivation I can get right now!). We're currently coveting this pair (love the mint and pink combo), this pair, and this pair...hard. 


I could realllly use a new wallet right now (hint hint). I'm loving this one, but here's a more budget-friendly option as well. 

Let's face it, mamas neeeeeeeed coffee to survive, and having a great espresso machine somehow makes life so much more enjoyable ;). I'm lusting after this one, but I currently have this Nespresso (much more affordable) and love it as well. 

I have heard great things about this eye cream (check out all the great reviews, too), and really want to try it. This is a perfect gift - I want it, but don't really want to spend money on it (to me, items that fall into that category make the best gifts). As far as an eye creams go, the price isn't too bad. 

Every mom (and let's be real, non-mom) needs a great flat for summer, and we can't get over all of the amazing espadrilles out this year. The mesh + studs on this pair are so great - easy to dress up, or throw on with a pear of cutoffs. 

What will you be getting your mama this Mother's Day?


The Look For Less: A Polished Summer Oufit Perfect for Festival Season

Leg-baring season is FINALLY upon us, and in case you didn't notice, we are eternally grateful. Don't get us wrong, our camel coats and black boots have been good to us, but nothing beats a chic dress and open-toe sandals. Today's outfit inspo is as on-trend as they come, featuring two of the seasons must haves: fringe, and gladiator sandals. Yes, gladiator sandals are never going out of style. And while this is the ultimate look for all you festival-goers (who prefer to ditch the crop tops and flower crowns), we think it also makes the perfect Sunday brunch look. So, even if you can't spend big bucks on the actual look, we found stylish picks that work for every budget. Better book that pedi appointment!

Oversized Moto Jacket

jacket (on sale!) | top | jeans (similar) | wedges | bag | sunglasses

Hi loves! It's my last day in Vegas and I'm so not ready to leave the heat or part ways with my mom. Three days was not enough! It's still been pretty chilly in Chicago (ugh!) which means jackets are still necessary. This Trouve moto jacket is a great transition piece and easy to throw on with any outfit. It also comes in white, I had the hardest time picking between the two! I've had these jeans for a few years now but definitely want to add another pair of flares to the lineup - I love how long and lean they make your legs look! These white Rag & Bones and these FRAME's are on my wish list!

Lounge

We stay in our pajamas as long as possible on the weekends - so having something a little nicer to wear around the house is perfect. I will have to say, answering the door for the UPS guy in my boyshorts and oversized (paint-stained) tee was pretty horrifying, lol. Loungewear is the perfect gift because it's not something you want to spend a ton of money on for yourself, but you really appreciate it when you've got it.  We popped into Nordstrom this week and found some of our favorites - they have so many different options, you can definitely find something for yourself, your mama, or even a girlfriend this Mother's Day.
Although my little one isn't here yet, this Mother's Day is extra special knowing I'm going to be a momma in less then two months!

My hubs usually brings me coffee in bed on the weekends after he gets up with Sophia, so I'm hoping Mother's Day will be no different - unless pancakes and bacon are involved ;). 
I love a classic pajama, and this pair is suuuuper comfortable - the fabric is so soft, and I love the stripe. 
I mentioned in my 'First Month Favorites' post that I love Nordstrom's baby sleepwear, and couldn't resist this sweet sleeper for Avery.
We tried to get Sophia + Avery together for a few shots, but Sophia ripped off her pajamas in 5 seconds flat, and wouldn't sit still ... #momlife. This is the best we could get, and I consider it a win. 

A few more of our favorites from Nordstrom:
