zara baby haul

I think that I mentioned this before, but Remy has always been bang on with clothing sizes. When she was less than 3 months, she was in newborn and then 0-3 month clothing. As a 4 month old, she was wearing 3-6 month clothes, at 7 months she was in 6-12, and so on. Right around her one year birthday, she had outgrown all of her clothes. She desperately needed a new wardrobe, so I logged on to one of my favourite websites for baby clothes; Zara.

I was fortunate in that ordering her so many pieces aligned with spring being just around the corner. This meant that I could finally pick out lighter clothes. Hello, short sleeves, shorts, and spring jackets!

What Remy ended up getting was the Embroidered T-Shirt, the Sequinned Balloons T-Shirt, the Watercolour Striped T-Shirt (which is actually for boys, but is just so cute), the Loose-Fit Jumpsuit, the Openwork Bermuda Shorts, the Extra Long Leggings (again for boys), and the Hooded Trench Coat which I didn’t take a photo of but is to die for!

She looks so adorable in all of her clothes. Zara also fits wide, which is great for our little chubbins! With only $5 shipping, it is always my go-to store.

harlee’s closet : maxi dress

Harlee's Closet OOTD - 5Today’s lovely outfit post is actually nearly three months overdue. It was originally going to be posted on my due date, with a mention of me taking a break for awhile to await the arrival of my baby. But because I delivered our daughter early, this OOTD post never came to light. Until now, that is.

Harlee's Closet OOTD - 12

Harlee’s Closet is an online store that I follow on Instagram. Their vibe is so hippie, in the chicest way imaginable. When I was eight months pregnant, I was still wearing my regular clothes. My go-to look at the time included maxi dresses, chunky boots, and cute toques. So I ended up ordering two dresses from Harlee’s Closet. This grey dress was one of them, and I lived in it, and this floral crop top until Remy arrived.

Harlee's Closet OOTD - 3Although the weather has warmed up forty degrees, I couldn’t resist blogging about one of my favourite maxi dresses to date. The fabric is so soft, and it is the perfect shade of grey to hide all postpartum flaws. It was also in immaculate condition. It now reminds me of being pregnant, and for that, I will always cherish it. 

Harlee's Closet OOTD - 15Be sure to visit their website! Have the most wonderful weekend!

baby wearing

BABYWEARING-3Before becoming a mum, I had a mental list of things that I swore I would not do once our baby came along. That of course went out the window, and I now do 95% of them. The first one was co-sleeping. Another was wearing a wrap or sling. The latter is precisely what today’s post is all about.

BABY WEARING - 0My sister had gifted me her Moby Wrap towards the end of my pregnancy. I thanked her, then tucked it away in my closet. I secretly thought that all wraps were for neo-hippie parents. My husband and I are just the opposite. So, a short while after receiving the wrap, we went and purchased a baby carrier instead. That was more our style.

BABY WEARING - 1Remy was two weeks old when I published something on Instagram along the lines of asking for advice to soothe her during her evening fussy periods. In every single comment I had a mother telling me to simply wear her around the house. That evening I stuck her in the baby carrier. She didn’t like it at all, and I didn’t like how she fit into it. She was so tiny and so low on my body. So I threw that suggestion out the window.

BABY WEARING - 2It wasn’t until a few weeks later that I turned to Geoffrey and told him that I was going to try wearing her again, but this time in the wrap. I pulled it out of the closet, quickly watched a video on how to put it on, and placed her in it. She stopped crying within minutes, and fell into a deep sleep. I was astonished, relieved, and humbled. Clearly, in my bid to go against all things crunchy, I forgot to take into consideration the most important thing, my daughter. I personally did not want to wear a wrap because everyone does it. I never thought that the reason behind their popularity is because they work. It’s what the baby needs to feel snug and secure. Suffice it to say that I have been converted. I’m even looking into purchasing a sling.

I never thought that baby wearing would be such a life saver. Now I look forward to our daily wearing sessions.

threadsence is closing

letter

Rather than publishing an uplifting fashion post, it’s with great sadness on my end that I will be writing about the closing of one of my favourite online stores. Over the last year and a half, I’ve written about my purchases and sales from ThreadSence numerous times. Not only did they offer stylish clothing, but everything was always so reasonably priced and shipped quickly. I always received compliments when I wore or sold my dresses from their site.

Why they have to do this now when I’m less than two months postpartum and still hormonal is beyond comprehension. I feel as if I’m losing a friend. However, as the saying goes “all good things must come to an end.” So, ThreadSence, I guess this is goodbye. You brought so much joy into this prairie girl’s life. You will be missed.
