Baby countdown and preparation continues… I keep saying to myself I am as prepared as a new mom can be prepared but that it’s OKAY to acknowledge you can only be so prepared. (Definitely getting jittery…. and a little restless!) On the bright side, it was a nice low-key week here. Mike and I are soaking up our time together just the two of us while also trying to catch up with friends, too.

ON MY RADAR 7.30.21

Here’s what was on my radar this week:

ONE // Car Seat Inspection

I crossed one big item off my pre-baby to-do list, which was to get our car seat installation inspected. Honestly…. thought it would be some low key thing where I drive up, someone looks to see if it’s installed correctly, tweak whatever I need to tweak… and drive away. It was actually so much more educational and empowering. I walked away feeling much more confident about driving with a baby. HIGHLY recommend.

While I was there there was a grandma getting her carseat inspected, an aunt making sure she was good to go to drive around with her toddler niece, and a couple of new moms. We all had different makes and models of car seats and the people from the organization were *pros* and knew the ins and outs of every seat! (PS We went with the Nuna Pipa RX and it’s been hard to find lately… there’s *some* limited stock available though from what I can tell!)

TWO // 2021 Wicker Decor Trends

Wicker has been highly, highly on trend lately. It does seem to still be on the rise, so I hope it’s not going away any time soon! Emily Henderson’s blog recently rounded up a bunch of inspiration photos for how to decorate with wicker in unique ways. There are SO many ways to incorporate it into your house!

THREE // Kule x Cover Swim

I HAD to share this amazing collaboration between Kule (the coolest stripes on the block) and Cover (sun safe swim suits!). I have a few Cover swimsuits when they collaborated with Minnow Swim a few years back, and pre-pregnancy they were my go-to. (Currently my bump doesn’t fit!) I loooooove the stripes though! Such a classic-yet-fun look.

FOUR // Simone Biles Just Demonstrated a True “Champion Mindset”

There’s been a lot of hot takes about Simone Biles’ decision to drop out of the Olympics. I really loved this opinion piece about her true “champion mindset.” Here is one pulled quote from the piece: “‘We have a fundamental misconception of what it means to be tough,’ Mr. Magness told me. ‘It’s not gritting our teeth through everything; it’s having the space to make the right choice despite pressure, stress and fatigue.'”

FIVE // Scalloped Bra

Couldn’t tell you the last time I put on a normal bra… I switched to wireless last year during the pandemic and then found them to be the most comfortable option while pregnant too. BUT, I got a Facebook ad for this scalloped bra and it’s so cute. It comes in beige and black and looks like a great full coverage option.
