buy these : baby booties (babybbasic)

Remy Crocheted Booties - 1One item that we did not purchase before Remy was born was any type of footwear. I had asked my sister if she ever put her babies in shoes, and she replied that she did not. In fact, she said to just buy a ton of sleepers for them. That way, their feet would always be covered. So we did. 

Remy Booties - 1In hindsight, I would have done things differently. My husband and I quickly grew to detest sleepers. We found that the sheer number of buttons, as well as the fact that our tiny baby had to become more than half naked in order to change one diaper was just too much. Instead, we opted for onesies, pants, and socks. It was much less of a hassle, in our opinion! Plus, I enjoyed creating her outfits. ;-)

Remy Booties - 5.1Now that we are in the summer months, Remy is foregoing pants and socks. This means that I have nothing to put on her feet! Worried that they may get cold, I was in desperate need of footwear. So, I searched Instagram and Etsy, and much to my surprise I came across the cutest Canadian store. It is called babyBbasic

The store offers a great selection of booties. I chose navy blue for Remy. Because they are made of cotton, her feet shouldn’t overheat on a warm day.

Everything about the booties is too cute! I especially love the leather ties and tags. They are also stretchy enough so that she will have quite a few months to wear them. Score!

Remy Booties - 6.1My next purchase from the shop is going to be a bonnet. Now that Remy is teething, I am needing a bib for her as well. Oh the things I wish I knew before I had her!

Happy Monday, everyone!

3 best warm weather dresses

off%20the%20shoulderWhen things start to warm up outside, you want your wardrobe to follow suit. This year, there are a few different dresses that you need to add to your closet that will keep you feeling cool while looking fabulously fashionable.

Take a look at these top dress styles for the the coming season.

The Off-the-Shoulder Dress
Off-the-shoulder dresses have come back in a big way this season. They’re a trendy way to show off a bit of skin in a way that won’t leave you feeling overexposed. According to My Fashion Life, Kate Beckinsale perfectly demonstrated the trend at the New York premiere of her latest movie, Love and Friendship.

“Shoulders are having a major fashion moment,” My Fashion Life wrote. Beckinsale rocked the trend “in a simple yet sophisticated off-shoulder navy mermaid dress by Vatanika teamed with fishnet Louboutin heels adding a touch of goth glam to the look with black nail polish.”

Follow her premiere style and you can’t lose.

shirt%20dress2The Shirt Dress
There’s two kinds of shirt dresses. The first looks like an oversized T-shirt, with its loose lines and comfy, relaxed feel. You can usually find them in everything from cotton blends, to a jersey knit fabric. They’re fairly casual, but they’re certainly cute enough to wear out for a day of shopping or a girls’ night in.

The other is a button-up variety that’s either fitted throughout the bodice or cinched with a belt to accentuate the wearer’s curves. They’re usually seen as a bit more formal, or at the very least, it’s more commonly seen in high fashion settings. The designers featured on Lyst range from top names like Michael Kors, Armani, and Versace, proving that these dresses are more than a cosy coverup. Feel free to wear one of these to work, meetings, or out on the town for date night.

slip%20dress5The Slip Dress
These slinky dresses used to be meant for under your clothes, but they’re quickly becoming a staple for outerwear among the fashion elite. A trend alert from Platform recommends a few different styles with varying details, but it also sets decent guidelines by suggesting pairing them with boots if it’s chilly or sandals for a dainty, feminine summer look.

Granted, the slip dress can be pretty revealing on its own. So if it doesn’t leave enough to the imagination for your liking, it’s a great piece to play with in a layered outfit. You can try it out under jackets or cardigans, as well as over a pair of leggings. It’s doesn’t have to be your main focus, but it can certainly help you create a fashion-forward outfit that you can’t achieve otherwise.

These dresses are summer and mommy approved. Find yours before it’s too late!

a sign for the little barn

Pike Lake Sign - 5In a bid to improve the exterior of The Little Barn, ordering an address sign was certainly a must.

Pike Lake Sign - 2I went through the same online company that we used for Little Green’s sign. Rather than choosing a bronze and gold cast aluminum plaque, this time I selected a green and silver one. It better matched the gooseneck lighting and hardware for the sliding doors.

Pike Lake Sign - 3Because of the uneven nature of the siding, Geoffrey had to first install a piece of reclaimed wood to ensure that the sign would fasten securely to the house. 

Pike Lake Sign - 7Pike Lake Sign - 8Remy watched to make sure that we did a job. It was so hot and windy that day!

Pike Lake Sign - 4We still need to stain the exterior of the house and deck and order a fence. The renos never end, even on a new home.

father’s day

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetThis Sunday is Father’s Day. As I celebrated my first Mother’s Day this year, so, too, will my husband be celebrating his first Father’s Day.

I couldn’t find a more wonderful man to have a child with. I love how you call her beautiful as if it were her name. I love how you always try to get her to smile. I love that in the evenings and on the weekends she’s always in your arms so that I can have a break. I love how when you get sad when you can’t soothe her, only because it shows your tender side. I love how you agree that she was the best thing to ever happen to us. I love how you buy her gifts without me even asking you to. I love how you do all of the diaper changes in the middle of the night. I love how you want to spend every waking moment with her. I love how she’s only been with us for four months, and we now have the rest of our lives to grow with her. Most of all, I love you so much more now that you’re a father.

Processed with VSCO with b1 presetHappy Father’s Day, everyone!
