Summer Uniform

July 24, 2014



This post was sponsored by Old Navy. Check out Old Navy‘s latest fashion lineup in store or online at oldnavy.com.

We took these pics while we were in Oregon at the coast. Admittedly you guys, I was nervous about the beach-wear situation. I knew I wouldn’t be strutting around in a swimsuit, what with the postpartum bod situation. But I also didn’t want the bod to deter me from wearing something cute and functional to the beach either, know what I mean? Continue Reading

Nobody’s Perfect

July 23, 2014



Neutrals win the day again. As usual. These pics were taken a bit ago when my mommy, sissy and poppa came to visit about a month after Jack was born. We took sissy into SF for the day cuz she had never been. Continue Reading

Call-it-Spring-Wedges-3Outfit Details:

Top: Old Navy, c/o {buy here on sale!} | Cropped jeans: Old Navy, c/o {buy here} | Wedges: Call It Spring, c/o {buy here} | Scarf: Subtle Luxury, c/o {buy here} | Panama hat: J.Crew {buy here} | Beach bag: Old Navy, c/o {buy here} | Bracelets: Bauble Bar {buy here} | Sunnies: Ambiance

Can we talk about how summer feels like it’s almost over guys? Woof. I hate being that person who says crap like that. Don’t you feel like you want to punch people who say things like that? All it does is put a big fat rain cloud over everyone’s summery, sunshiney parade. Way to go Shannon. Furthermore, summer is really only about half way over. There’s tons left to be enjoyed! My bad guys. My bad. Maybs I’m feeling like it’s dwindling in a depressing way because my maternity leave ends and I go back to work at the beginning of August, plus all of our summer visitors and vacays have basically come and gone. Orrrrrr maybe I found out last night that husband has to take a sudden out of town trip for four days this week and it was too expensive/didn’t work logistically for me to go, so baby and I have to stay here by ourselves (yikes). Orrrrrr maybe my house looks like a hurricane blew through it and I’m just a Melancholy Melanie about a boat load of silly things today. Woof – sorry guys. Real life. But 1-2-3 I’m over it! Counting my blessings and choosing to be happpppppyyyyyyyyy! Right?

Husband and I met up with my family a few weeks ago and stayed for a week at the Oregon Coast. The house we stayed in was absolutely stunning – a cape cod inspired, massive home with beautiful hard wood floors, white molding everywhere, pale gray walls, vaulted ceilings, balconies everywhere. It was gorge. One of those things that’s hard to capture in a photo, ya know? These pics were taken outside the house. I’m missing it so badly on a day like today, where all I want to do is be back on carefree vacation! K I’m gonna shut it now and go clean my house. Woot! 

Have a ‘There’s still tons of summer left’ Tuesday! 

Thanks for putting up with me!

Maxi Dress: Day to Night

June 24, 2014



Photos by KNW Photography

In the summer, all I want to wear is DRESSES. Dresses dresses dresses! Show me a pair of jeans and I’ll ask you to find me a dress. The Maxi dress particularly is a summer staple for me. I love how easily they can be dressed up or down and transition from day to night. Continue Reading

I’ve decided to be nice to myself…

June 17, 2014



Confession: I have no idea how to dress a postpartum body. Not mine, and not anyone else’s. Does that make you lose respect for me? As a fashion blogger, I should know how to do that, right? Turns out I don’t though, because remember how I’ve never done this before? I do. I remember that.

I’ll Polk Your Dots…

June 10, 2014



I’ll polk your dots? What does that even mean? There would be no way of knowing. It just seemed like the right thing to write at the time. What you’re witnessing here: a real cute shirt that might look a whole lot cuter on a gal who isn’t lactating, or working with a postpartum bod. Hashtag what are ya gonna do? But let me tell you a lil’ bit about where this cutie top came from, cuz you won’t be mad about it…
