The New Year is for Cashmere! (+ a Pomegranate Inc. discount)

Welcome to 2017, babes! How’s it going? It’s taking me a hot minute to get back into it. After traveling for 2 weeks, coming back to reality and responsibilities is kind of kicking my ass. Going into the first full week of the year, I’m trying really hard to apply the 5 things I wrote about in my last post that can set us up for success in the new year. They really are so simple. My favorite tips are to get moving & finding something inspirational. I am going to work out tonight + have been catching up on my favorite podcasts all day.
 Another thing I did was take 1 extra day off to focus on me and play catch up. I had a dr appt, did some unpacking, caught up on some emails, and did a few other things for the blog. The break was great but one day at home, with Calvin in daycare (which he was SO HAPPY to return to) is just what the doctor and mental health gods ordered. I wrote about my advocacy for personal days here.

In other, fashion related news – I am so excited to share this slate blue, cashmere, Zoe Fringe sweater from Pomegrante Inc – an adorable online boutique out of Lexington, Ky!
I am ALLLL about deals, discounts, and cheap buys – you know this – but have you ever owned and wore a real cashmere sweater? GAME CHANGER. Such high quality, comfort, and a piece you can wear over and over because of…well, the high quality of the material.

This fringe is amazing and it is also available in blush, natural, grey and black (you know how I feel about neutrals) but I decided to mix it up with SLATE BLUE because it looked very “January” to me. In a good way!

The sweater is currently 25% off and with my discount code RUNNINGWITHSTROLLERS – you can get an additional 30% off anything on the site! That’s 55% off all their cashmere sweaters.
Some of my other favorites are…
The Catharine
The Anorak
The Piper
My Shoes – only 24.99!
My Purse – currently available in WINE & TAN

So – now I’m spoiled and cashmere sweaters are one of my go-to’s for the 2017 winter seasons.Seriously, a must have! Us mamas deserve nice thing every once and a while too! What pieces are you loving for January 2017? kaylasignature-06

Our {Mommy & Me} Fall Fashion Favorites + a GAP discount code

Hi all, how are we? I’m back, back again – I have to write about the sweetest thing that has started happening with Calvin lately. I wrote about this on a previous instagram post, but he has definitely started WANTING me and showing preference to who holds him, and when. This is new in the last few weeks. When I get home from work he is basically reaching and lunging for me to hold him and just pick him up and squeeze him. If I go in the other room, he now notices, and if I put him down before he wants me to, he’ll grip onto me harder. If we’re sitting on the floor he tries to crawl up my legs. I know that this will probably get old but for now I am just enjoying him wanting to spend time with and love his mom! He shows he needs me and I know I need him, too.

Anyways…it’s a new season, a new month, and guess what? I’m still obsessed with neutrals. I’ve enlisted the help of a particularly cute baby model to help me with this post 🙂 I’m thinking I will do a ‘Mommy & Me’ type fashion post every so often going forward.
Last fall I was preggo and wearing pretty much all maternity clothes, this fall, I get to match with my little dude – so fun!
So because of this year’s change in size, I was feeling like I needed some new things… and I found myself going for all of the brown, tan, cream basics per usual. Am I boring? I’m such a brown, goldeny wearing girl. I love wearing these type of shades, and this always translates into my make-up and accessories as well. I talked in my everyday makeup routine about this and I will be showing you all my newest neutral favorite fall/winter accessory from JORD watches next week!

My fall necessities as always are sweaters, jeans and boots. #basic huh?  I love me a good pair of brown boots, a soft comfy sweater and perfect fit pair of jeans. Obviously I had to get Calvin the same items – brown baby booties, a comfy knit henley onesie and the cutest little baby jeans.

Both of our jeans are from GAP – all of my best, comfiest, and longest lasting pants are from here. I’m so happy I can pass my love of GAP JEANS onto Calvin so we can match. He’s totally going to hate me for this later on in life so I’ll just do it now while I can get away with it!
