BRB, in the Pool...

I basically lived in this outfit this was too easy to toss on following an afternoon in the pool. And this necklace? The perfect pop of colour for summer! My shoes varied from lace-up sandals to simple flip-flops, depending on where we were headed. This particular day I had to navigate the doctor's office with both girls, so these espadrilles were the most practical...

Lazy Long Weekends

I'm for any excuse to make Monday feel like an extra day of the weekend, especially during the summer. We couldn't really travel too far before Sadie had her first set of shots, so we made the most of every long weekend around our neck of the woods.  I'm finally getting through all these summer posts you guys, now to upload all the new content I've been working on...

Tropical Gladiator

The title of this post really explains what I was going for here. Every day, something else seems to fit me again & it feels like it's brand new (it's been a long two years of missing my closet). I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but F21's dresses keep getting shorter & shorter...& I never even attempt to buy the ones with 'mini' in the description. I can usually counteract their shortness by sizing up, but even that isn't cutting it lately. Cue knee-high gladiator sandals & a tropical kimono...sorta counteracts how short this dress is. Obviously worn out for errands & lunch, this wouldn't cut it at the park 😉

To New Adventures...

Learning to navigate with a new baby is one thing, two is a whole different challenge in itself. I wore this to a craft beer & ribfest a few months ago.  My wonderful mother-in-law took Zoey for the day so we could enjoy ourselves a little more (chasing a toddler around is really great exercise FYI).  It was a super warm afternoon & our sweet little baby ended up being fussy...aka we had to stuff our faces with BBQ while constantly keeping her moving. Moral of the story? Expect the worst, prepare for it, & be grateful when it turns out better then expected...

My Kind of Weekender

In lieu of the weekend, I'd thought I'd switch it up with a rarely seen outfit post.  I've been basically living in this dress since I bought it last summer.  It is the one piece that has helped me survive this postpartum faze that I've now endured twice in two years.  I originally wanted the black & white striped version, but am oh so pleased this was the only one left in my size.  I may or my not be wearing this right now...

Lovin' Every Minute of It

Loving every minute of being a stay-at-home mama of two.  It's challenging, some days are better than others, but my goodness…this is time I will never get back.  Snuggles & hugs I never would have had if Canada's maternity leave policy wasn't so amazing.  I am so, so incredibly fortunate to be able to make so many memories with both girls on a daily basis.  Zoey has only had to be in daycare for five months over the course of her life & Sadie will be lucky enough to start daycare with her big sister by her side.  Sorry, I'm clearly feeling a bit emotional today & just extremely grateful :)

July 2017

Couldn't resist sharing these photos, even though they're pushing on three months irrelevant.  I guess when I take the time to photograph certain moments, I sorta have to share them…seems like a waste not to, right? These are from the double holiday in July (Sadie's first Canada Day & 4th of July), both of which were celebrated to the fullest extent...

Sweet Summertime

Sweet summertime, summarized in photos.  You know me, always one to wish summer away in favor of fall.  This year, however, was the complete opposite.  I feel like we took full advantage of summer this year & were outside every day the weather allowed.  The afternoons are still warm, so we're continuing on...

Pool time almost every day 
French toast breakfasts, per Zoey's request 
Pool essentials (hat: F21, koozie: shop bando)
Summer paddle…my first one back since Sadie :)
Finally got to visit the Toronto Zoo :)
