We’re still in the heat of summer in Florida, but fall touches as we come closer to September is alright in my book. Fall beer is already on the shelves and I’m all for a new fall scent, cozy throw and other simple home updates.
As a creative, especially in design, I’m influenced by seasonality and like to shift/move things around to incorporate that change – whether I feel it in the air or not.
here are some of my favorite new fall additions:
It’s true – I never go any trip without at least one item from Jenni Kayne. Whether it’s a cashmere sweater, cable cardigan or a summer dress.
This look was a favorite from our recent family beach trip – the cove dress w/ the cropped cashmere sweater. It was elegant and casual and comfortable all at the same time. With leather sandals and Celine bag/sunnies, I felt really pulled together.
Sometimes as a mom you put yourself last and you’ve got like 5 mins to get ready to get out the door – well this is outfit is less than 5 mins but makes you feel like a million bucks.
we crammed a lot in the week before school and looking back though, I don’t think we would have changed a thing.
vacations with kids are never truly vacations but splitting it up with a big kid trip and then a full family trip was really great. as the mom, I’m always with the baby and my attention is always divided. but with a 48 stint in New York with our bigs and then five days to soak up the last of the summer sun, it was a great balance.
vacations like these i hope they remember. i know we will. know matter how hard it is with three kids and finding the time – always take the trip.
48 hours in New York
to five days at the beach
grateful for these moments and memories. heart is full.
