Photos by: Hello Again PhotographyA trip down memory lane. That's what this post should be titled. A few weekends back, Lydia and I took a trip back to the first place we all lived as a family. When Lydia was first born, we lived in a very trendy part of LA proper…..in a VERY small apartment. As a family of two, it was perfect. We could walk to the hippest bars and restaurants. Who needed space? Then, once our little one arrived…..we realized we did. Plus, a bunch of college students moved into the other half of our duplex and our “lifestyles” didn't really mesh. So, like most people…..we moved to the ‘burbs. While I love our current home…..it was SO much fun to visit our old neighborhood. I spent my maternity leave walking the neighborhood (a LOT)…..and knew those streets very well! I walked by our favorite watering hole….in fact it was where we went on our very first, nerve racking date night. Everything was the same…..except for this fountain! It's new, and Lydia was OBSESSED. Isn't it stunning?
Speaking of stunning……these Mommy and Me Blue Dresses with teal accents might be my very favorite mommy and me outfit yet! My dress is a part of the new PB Sands collection from Shabby Apple…..it's comfy, and super flattering. And the accessories? My teal diaper bag is already in heavy rotation, it's roomy and VERY well made…..and who doesn't love that color? My necklace? I'm love with it. It's hand stamped with the word Bisous, in the prettiest font ever……and is by one of my new favorite shops……The Atelier. (newflash, they'll be your favorite too…..because they're sending one of these adorable necklaces to one of YOU…..enter below). Don't forget to check out my fellow mamas, and see how they styled their Shabby Apple dresses!
