I have always loved the idea of scarves and think they look super adorable on other people. (Especially little kids. Every toddler should wear a scarf. Every day.) But I always thought that I looked ridiculous wearing them. Something about it just made me feel extra self-conscious… like everyone was staring and thinking, “Oh, she didn’t tie it right” or “that doesn’t go with the rest of her outfit.” Ridiculous, but I couldn’t help it!
Except now… it’s summertime and still chilly. And rainy. I’d personally like to just live in pajamas and stay in bed– something about rainy days that just does that to me. I also have no idea what to wear on a daily basis. Rain boots? Jeans? Sweaters? Definitely too cool for skirts this week. Definitely too bleak for summery dresses.
Apparently I have quite the collection without even intending on it and I made sure to put them to good use. I found that t-shirts were the easiest things to pair with the scarves because the scarves lay flat and the combination is just extra comfortable. (Plus, t-shirts come in different colors and can make a scarf really pop!)
Tertiary Color(Lilly Pulitzer Scarf + Artist Tee) // To really bring out the colors of a printed scarf, opt for one of the tertiary colors. The primary colors of this Lilly scarf are teal and pink. The tangerine shirt really makes the orange of the scarf stand out!
No one will know the size of your jeans but they’ll know if they don’t fit! Struggling with my postpartum body… and just decided to go to the store and buy jeans that fit! Who knows what will happen down the road (my postpartum body always feels foreign for a while), but for now I have jeans that fit and that I feel good in. 🏻

Can’t wait to fill Rory’s @petitekeep trunk with special memories and treasures 🏻 Jack’s is tucked away in his closet and every once in a while I open it up to store another item and reminisce on all the wonderful moments of his life so far. Love these keepsakes 🤍🍼👶🏼
After quite a tough pregnancy, from the first days all the way to the very end, I’m finally starting to feel like myself again! Nothing better than feeling a bit more “me.” I am trying to prioritize taking care of myself by carving out little slivers of time to do things that I enjoy… I don’t have unlimited time for hobbies, but I’ll take what I can get! I’m working on a couple of small needlepoint projects and I’m excited to start on Rory’s stocking soon🧵 🪡
My Valentine + Valentine Baby ❣️ After a very stressful start to the year, Rory’s birth felt like a bright light of hope and positivity. I’m so, so grateful for a healthy (and speedy!) delivery with Mike by my side.
(If you’re local, I switched to @madisonaveobgyn and this experience was night and day compared to my first pregnancy/delivery. I am *eternally* grateful for incredible care both during pregnancy and especially during delivery. It makes a huge difference.)
