My Favorite Summer Bag
A classic show-stopping piece that is perfectly on-trend for summer. I get so many compliments on this bag and it’s my summer outfit go-to!
My Favorite Top
With just a hint of bohemian, the off-shoulder top is one of the hottest trends of the season and this floral motif makes it ultra feminine.
My Favorite Hat
I am all about straw boater hats and I love this one, especially for it’s sophisticated style and feminine bow. It elevates any look.
My Favorite Summer Shoes
The first time I wore these gladiator espadrilles I knew they would be an outfit regular! The neutral color makes them go with everything and the tassels bring the fun.
My Favorite Wrap Shirt
The ruffled wrap top is super on-trend right now and pairs perfectly with your high-waisted denim. It’s a unique piece that makes you look put-together without much effort.
My Favorite Sunglasses
These round sunglasses are my current favorite. They go with every outfit and give your look a chill, boho-vibe. Wear them with your favorite summer dresses.
My everyday go-to lipstick is a moisturizing medium pale pink shade. It compliments every skin tone and plays well with every outfit, so I just keep it in my purse.
For the last year I have been wearing this romantic scent by Wildfox and I love how light and subtle it is. It’s a white floral fragrance with a hint of apricot and honey.
Both morning and night every day I use this toner and I love it. It’s light, hydrates and refreshens my face while optimizing moisturizer absorption.
When I am shooting a look or heading out on the town, Dior Star is my go-to foundation. It’s a nice matte finish that gives your skin a glowing, even finish.
My Curling Iron
Hands down this is my all-time favorite curling iron! It’s great for adding my go-to beach waves and I love the long barrel for my long hair. It’s also never pulled out my hair.
I’ve used a lot of eyeliners in my day and happened to stumble upon this one and fell in absolute love! It makes drawing on your cat-eye so simple and it stays all day.
My Face Mask
These face masks are seriously the best! I put one on about once every two weeks and bring two with me everytime I travel. They’re great for restoring your skin’s moisture and are a beauty cabinet must!
I started using this transformative cream last February and I absolutely love it (and I am not even half way through the jar yet). My skin feels ultra-hydrated after pressing it into my skin. It’s expensive, but worth it.
If there is one hair care brand you should know, it’s Unite. I use their Luxury shampoo + conditioner, detangling spray, and thermal shine spray, and couldn’t live without any of them. But this stuff smells so good.
Our Car Seat
This car seat goes with our stroller but I also love it because it has the SMARTSecure system, which provides visual confirmation that the car seat is installed correctly.
Our Baby Monitor
We used to have the Motorola and I honestly hated it. I replaced it with the Nanit and I am obsessed! It works through our phones and iPads and provides insights on her naps and nighttime which I love.
Our Baby Carrier
This four-position baby carrier is so easy to use and it’s perfect for travel (I wear it through the airport). I got the Cool Air version since we live in Arizona, as well as the infant insert, which we used until she was about 6 months old.
Our High Chair
This is our favorite high chair and it’s perfect for baby-led weaning. It’s easy to clean and grows with her. I also like that her feet rest perfectly on the foot rest.
I love this little gray celestial play space for baby, and the light, neutral colors will look good in any home. It’s so soft and looks like she’ll be laying on a cloud.
We absolutely love our stroller! It’s sleek, safe and durable yet lightweight enough to lift too and from your car. I’d heard it was more lightweight than the Bugaboo which is why we chose it.
