MATERNITY STYLE : FALL LAYERS

Written by , Posted in maternity style

one of my most talented friends, heather rowland,  is having another baby!  she is already mom to an adorable two year old little boy, and now she and her husband are getting ready to welcome another little bundle of baby boy joy early next year.

for those of you who don’t already know, heather is the creative talent behind heather rowland photography. she and i have partnered many times over the last couple of years on various projects.  one of the things i love most about heather is that despite having a toddler, being a small business owner, having a crazy travel schedule, and a husband in residency she always manages to look so put together!  winning.

when heather told me she was pregnant i couldn’t resist asking her to be a regular feature here on the blog.  at twenty two weeks she is rockin’ this layered fall look and with the help of her talented friend brit jones, from brit jones photography, we were able to capture all the details. as an added bonus check out the adorable mommy and me pics her mom snapped before heather left the house. melt.

ABC FINDS

Written by , Posted in friday favorites, spotlight brands we love

friday favorites

 

a few weeks ago we attended the abc kids expo in las vegas.  this is where pretty much anyone and everyone in the baby/kids industry meets up to see what’s new for the coming year.  i love this show because it is a great chance to catch up with my favorite vendors, find new and exciting products, and get excited about what’s to come!  i thought i would share with you some of my finds from the show and products you should start seeing around the store and on the web shop.

monte’s new bassinet rocked our world, literally!  the walnut rockers are absolutely beautiful. newport cottages launched the new “hilary” collection, named after yours truly, which was exciting to see for all the obvious reasons.  their new light grey and dark grey stains are unbelievable, mostly because you can still see the wood grain. swoon.  pehr designs was one i was really looking forward to seeing in person and their knit mobiles did not disappoint. stokke’s sleepi mini, which is a bassinet that transforms into a crib, was most impressive.  it comes in 4 colors and seems like the perfect way to just spending the money on a bassinet. nook’s newest product is also coming in its newest color.  the niche feeding pillow meets pacific blue! i have been looking for a cool sustainable toy line that could double as nursery decor and boy did i find it in plan toys. their balancing cactus would make the perfect addition to any floating shelf.

stokke’s tripp trapp high chair amazed me because your child can use it forever.  it starts as a high chair at 3 months and ultimately turns into a desk chair, genius! nursery works really stepped up their game when they introduced new fabrics for the sleepytime and empire rockers.  they now offer a variety of wovens and patterns with light and dark legs.

i met the team from lucy darling and instantly fell in love with them and their products.  these closet dividers are so adorable and so practical i have no doubt they will be a huge success.

all in all the show was a huge success and i can’t wait for you to see all the new goods in person.

TOO COOL

Written by , Posted in nursery inspiration

too cool nursery

 

a few months ago one of my clients introduced me to this sweet little australian company called “castle“.  they make the most darling pieces of artwork, some of which are hand stitched wool and moleskin on linen.  i love their use of bright and bold colored words and phrases that would work for our little and big friends alike.   let’s just say that the little girl lucky enough to have one of these in her nursery is way cooler than most!

honeycombs // just a cool cat // stray dog sconces // pillows // jenny lind crib // greek key lamps // dresser // french macaroon box // monte rocker // blush ottoman // zara travel case // round rug // side table // picture frame //

HATCH COLLECTION :: FALL STYLE

Written by , Posted in maternity style, spotlight brands we love

i look forward to one day being pregnant, for all the obvious reasons, but mostly so i can sport any and possibly all of Hatch Collection’s amazing designs! i love that each design can be worn both during and after pregnancy.  they are pieces that can easily be paired with elements you already own to create an effortless maternity style.  they launched their fall collection recently. it’s so amazing it was hard for me to pick my favorites, but here they are:
