FHB Style: Baby Boyfriend Jeans

IMG_2068floppedlonging

The Boyfriend jean has always been a trend I just can’t pull off. First of all, what are boyfriend jeans? They are slouchy, slightly loose denim pants that appear as if you borrowed them from your boyfriend {or in my case, husband}. To wear them stylishly, you must pair them back to a fitted top to counterbalance the loose fit.

I have never been one to wear tight tops {except for when I am pregnant}, so I was bummed to throw in the towel when it came to the trend, that is until I saw they make boyfriend jeans for babies!! Unlike her mother, little Miss Reese can rock a tight tank over her adorable belly better than most. So I couldn’t be more excited when I found Old Navy railroad striped boyfriend jeans in her size and paired them  back to a fitted tank. I love that she is so comfy in them too!

And as if this look wasn’t trendy enough, I almost died when I found an oversized Military Green Cargo Vest at Old Navy to layer over top. {I actually went with their Canvas Utility Jacket for myself!}. Watch out trendsetters, this munchkin is on the loose!

Meet Baby Brooks

On June 20th at 12:48 am, we welcomed Brooks Lee to our family (exactly 3 weeks prior to his due date!). An absolute peanut, weighing only 5lbs 7 oz, what he lacked in size he made up for in hair – a full mohawk to be exact! Reese was a tad concerned as to why this little man was intruding her space and hogging her parents, but thanks to a clan of 15 relatives who came to town to celebrate his arrival, she was showered in endless attention and presents, so she wasn’t TOO upset.

Fast forwarding to today, how ironic – his due date of July 11th, it’s been a wild three weeks. The first week home was a blur – recovering from giving birth I was incredibly tired and slept constantly. That was probably the hardest part of transitioning from one child to two, because not only did we have a new baby, but I was too tired to play with Reese when she was awake. Thankfully my full-time nanny started so I had someone to watch her while I spent time sleeping in between feeds.

As I headed into the second week, I started functioning better on minimal sleep plus recovered more from delivery, so I started feeling more like myself. Unfortunately Brooks was really a night owl this week – up for stretches from 1 am to 5 am and then would sleep all day. I have no idea how my poor husband would function at work! That week though I made a special effort to do an activity alone with Reese for at least one hour a day. Whether it was taking her to the park or a music class, it was important to me to leave the baby home with the nanny, so we could have our mommy – Reesey time. She still wasn’t too happy with her baby Brother, but she wasn’t completely appalled when she saw him.

Now on to the third week, Brooks still wakes up every 2 – 3 hours during the day and night to feed, but at least he has transitioned to spending more of his time awake during the day versus night. Thankfully he also goes back to bed relatively quickly after he eats at night… just some rocking for anywhere from 5 – 30 minutes… a huge improvement to last week. This week I am “back to work” which means having some meetings at home, writing posts, and even hosting guests for dinner. It sounds fast and crazy but since Reese has a long nap mid-day from 12-2:30, and the baby sleeps tons, I have a few hour stretches where it’s quiet and I can get some things done! Not to mention, blogging is a part of me – I can’t imagine going long without it!

So this is where I need to take a second and thank you guys – my family, friends, readers and followers for all of your support!! In an exhausting time, it has been so nice to wake up at 2:00 am and see encouraging comments on my Instagram, or to get home and have awesome packages awaiting with cool baby gear. I am so grateful!!

I look forward to sharing more about Brooks – like his sister’s fashion posts, I am sure he will want to show off his wardrobe as well. Then I need to debut his grey and white nursery, all of the baby essentials I have put to use since birth, and more pics of him with his big sister. I am so excited for all that’s to come and look forward to having you share in the ride!!

FHB Style: Baby Denim Romper

Baby GluckBaby Denim Romper-Old Navy Jellies-

I know you saw my love of baby rompers {especially well-priced ones from Old Navy} in my last FHB BBQ Style Post, so you shouldn’t be surprised that as I went shopping for the perfect “camp” outfits for Reese, I ended up in the same aisle! First of all, yes, Reese goes to camp! I know it sounds a tad ridiculous and I guess it is, after all she is only 17 months old! It’s twice a week for an hour and a half and the kids are so young they are even required to attend with a care-taker! But seriously it’s adorable! They sing, they play, Reese learned to paint, she didn’t eat the play-doh (after being reminded a few times), they go to “gym” where they run around on a tumble track and push cars… she is basically exhausted afterward, aka. mission accomplished.

But anyways, I needed easy, comfortable, and cute things to throw on her, so when I saw this Old Navy Star-Print Chambray Romper, I was like “Done!”. Oh, and there’s the added perk that it has snaps underneath so you can easily change a diaper… I find myself wishing MY rompers came with this sneak door for runs to the restroom. I love that this one has a tomboy kind of fit… almost like an updated pair of overalls. The perfect complimentary hair style was pigtails of course. To finish off the look, I picked up some new Old Navy Sandal Jellies in grey – they go with everything and easily close with a snap… who has time to be tying laces when your kid is on the move?

Also on the hunt for camp attire? Head to Old Navy now!
