Hi guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! We went back to my parents for the weekend and had a nice time.  I actually had some work to do there and it was the first full day I was away from Sutton. It went better than expected, I was so busy, I didn't have time to worry. Plus, she was in good hands with her dad and was such a good girl. 

  Do you ever find yourself gravitating toward the same style clothes? I do this all the time. Distressed/torn jeans are on major repeat always, as well as over-sized shirts. This thermal striped one from Free People is the softest shirt I own. I wore it this past week with leggings, cutoffs and these black jeans. The cooler temps set in this weekend, so I paired it with my faux leather jacket and slip on sneaks.

New Mom Favorites

9.26.2014


My baby girl is already 2 months old! I can't believe how fast she is growing. So today I wanted to share some of my favorites things that have helped me along the way. 

1. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding Book by La Leche League International. A friend actually sent me her copy and I wish I would have read this before Sutton was born. Such a great resource for breastfeeding moms. In the beginning, I constantly doubted myself and had soooo many questions. This book was a lifesaver and I highly recommend if you plan on breast feeding. 
2. Nursing Bras-A couple of my favorite nursing bras are from A Pea in the Pod. I love this seamless clip-down bra one for my casual days when I am at home and just in comfy sweats or workout clothes. This nude demi bra is what I wear when I dress up more. I love the coverage, fit and the nude color blends well under any fabric.
3. The Bump Nest-This pillow is amazing! It is the by far the softest pillow I have ever owned. It's long and wraps perfectly around your body and supports all the right spots. I loved it not only for when I was expecting, but also for postpartum. I use it when I nurse for support and love it for when I sleep. 
4. Aden and Anais blankets- These blankets are know for being great swaddles, which they are, but I mainly use them for everyday errands or walks, since they are lightweight and so soft and cute.
5. 4moms Mamaroo Infant Seat-You can't even call this a swing, it's more like a spaceship that sways your baby just like you would. With 5 different motions, and 5 different speeds, plus sleep sounds, Sutton absolutely loves this. She take several of her day naps in her mamaroo. 
6. Halo SleepSack Swaddle-Sutton gets swaddled at every nap and during the night, and these swaddles are so great. They keep her nice and snug and she doesn't escape. I have tried other versions and they just don't do as well of a job. 
7. Covered Goods Nursing Cover-I like to take Sutton wherever I go, be that shopping, family events, weddings, etc and will nurse in public if need be. About a month ago, Michael and I were at a wedding and I had one of those covers that only cover the front. Well I had to pull down the entire front of my dress, back exposed and all and I just felt really exposed, since there was no where to nurse really that private. Soon after I received a Covered Goods nursing cover and it's been night and day nursing in public. I feel so much more covered with the "poncho" like style. Plus the fabric is so soft and all the designs are so so cute!  See my cover here.
7. Orbit G3 Car Seat, Base and Stroller-when selecting a car seat and stroller, the orbit was a no brainer. The interchangeable seat makes this stroller a one stop shop. When going places you don't have to change your baby from car seat to stroller seat, you just take the car seat out of the car base and place on the stroller base. The stroller base is a one handed folding system, which is amazing. So easy to take in and out and fits in all sizes of cars. I get so comments every where I go. Eventually, when we have #2, Sutton can ride alongside on the skateboard looking side kick or even in her own seat with the double helix seat system. So many great options as baby girl grows and we expand the family more. 

What are some of your favorite mom things? Do share, I love hearing!

Cardigan // Free People -a fall must! shop it here and here
Fringe Tank // F21 similar here and here

The weather here just can't make up it's mind…one day it's warm, the next it's cooler, so my outfits have been a mix of summer and fall. It could be also, that I am holding on to every last day of warm to wear all my summer staples I wasn't able to when pregnant. Sticking again with neutrals, this over-sized cardigan is on repeat. I pair it over tanks, shorts, jeans, leggings, sweats, the list can go on. A definite fall must! Hope you all are having a great week! As always, thank you so much for reading!

HOW TO WEAR WHITE IN FALL

9.22.2014










Sweater // here and here ( I always size up for an over-sized look)
Jeans // F21 here and here (super soft and stretchy)
Shoes // Sam Edelman here (my absolute favorite bootie, that goes with everything)
Bucket Bag // here (great color for Fall)
B Initial Necklace // Alixandra Collections shop here
Long Chain necklace // here and here
Watch // Daniel Wellington ℅ shop here -I ordered the men's watch use code 'cellajane' for 15% off

I am completely crushing on these creamy white jeans for fall. I am obsessed with lighter shades right now… ivory, grays, and nudes. This pair of ivory jeans were a steal I found at Forever 21 for under $25 and they are sooo soft! They pair perfect with all sorts of fall goodies. I paired them with….you guessed it… an over-sized ivory sweater, that is so so soft.  I tend to always size up when buying pullover sweaters. I love the look and I feel it just makes em more cozy!
What do you think of off white denim for Fall?

This past week I received the opportunity of working with Jane.com and Cents of Style to participate in the #BeTheGood challenge. What an awesome opportunity to do something, big or small, for another person. Through this challenge I chose to give some other moms Starbucks on me! I went to Target this past weekend with flowers and yummy lattes in tow and started handing out the drinks and flowers to the first 5 moms I saw. I mean, who doesn't love fresh flowers, coffee and target! With being a new mother to Sutton, I know how hard it can be at times and it's the little things that can make your day.

Now it's your turn! I challenge all of you to take a part in this movement and spread goodness throughout!

Jumpsuit Styled Day to Night

9.15.2014


If you follow this blog, then you know I am a huge fan of jumpsuits and rompers. Today I wanted to show you how to take a jumpsuit from day to night, with keeping in mind the fall temps that are soon approaching.  
I took this simple black jumpsuit and paired it with an over sized sweater, and some flat sandals. Another option, pair with slip-on sneakers (here) and a graphic sweatshirt (here). My bag is Rebecca Minkoff diaper bag and of course I take this everywhere, because baby girl goes with me everywhere. What I love about it, is that it looks just like a normal bag, just a really big one!










Taking the jumpsuit to night and dressing it up a bit, I paired with a soft black sweater, a statement necklace (under $35) and a pair of open toe heels. Another option could be pairing with a blazer (under $50 here) and a pair of pumps (here).
