FHB Style: Back to School

My sister just took a new job as a teacher and it got me thinking about how much I loved the process of getting ready to head back to school when I was a kid. Shopping for school supplies, organizing my desk, and picking out my first day of school outfit would get me jittery with excitement. Reese isn’t quite old enough to be heading to school this Fall, but it doesn’t mean she can’t dress the part.

Today’s outfit I picked up at Old Navy {which is packed with everything you need for back to school from uniform shirts to inexpensive tees – because we all know kids destroy everything!}. For her, I chose two school essentials – one, a pair of printed pants, the skinny side-zip terry legging {I love the zipper detail at the ankle} and two, an adorable grey button-up cardigan {because classrooms can get chilly!}. Also not shown here are the ridiculously suede cut-out boots I swooped up.

Who doesn’t love endless bows to compliment the look? I chose a great big bow clip for her hair and mini Melissa shoes for bows on her toes. I am already getting teary-eyed thinking of sending her to school… I am glad for now we are just playing dress up!

When Reese was born I never  splurged on a great baby swing. Between myself, my husband, the nurse we had living with us, and the endless number of family members visiting, there was never a shortage of hands to tote the little babe around. This time though, with no nurse, my husband incredibly busy with work, and myself trying to balance taking care of Reese, working on FH, and my endless entertaining ventures, I am desperate for a spot to place Brooks so he is comfy and entertained while I am running around. The crib quickly was ruled out once we realized he was a major “spitter-upper” and needed to be sitting on an incline for up to an hour after he fed, so within no time the search began.

When it came to picking out the perfect baby swing for our family, I did plenty of research and shopping. The two main points that went into the factoring were the reviews and the looks; the 4moms rockaRoo totally hit both of these on the nose. With the push of a button the swing can rock the baby at five different speeds, it has an outlet for an iPhone {so you can double entertain the baby with music}, and best of all, it is sleek enough that I can leave it out on display in my living room {the grey liner totally matches my decor!}. It is really light too, so I can easily carry it from room to room with him sitting in it, whether it be to Reese’s room, to the bathroom during her bath, or to the kitchen while I am cooking. Reese is totally intrigued by the swing and on occasion gets over zealous and tries to shove Brooks to make him go faster, but thankfully there is a little seatbelt so I can strap him in!

So, if you are considering this swing, I totally give it an A! Any mamma who likes sleek minimalist modern products should definitely check out their site!

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!
