The Nordstrom Sale

Hey y’all!

As many of you know today marks the first day of early access to the NSALE for Icon card holders! I am so excited to show you my top picks and set you up for success during this once a year sale!

I am going to be completely honest here, I am not a Nordstrom card holder, I don’t spend $5,000+ a year to qualify to shop the sale early, and in all reality I am not even qualified to shop until the “public” is allowed to shop on August 19th! This is my first year covering the sale & I have a strict budget as to what I can actually spend. I am right there with YOU! I am nothing special in this saturated world of bloggers but my beautiful, wonderful, loyal friends still stick around and I do my best to put content out there that y’all will love & relate to! I may not have 400K+ followers and money to blow at this sale but I WILL show you the must haves and great TJMAXX like deals that come along once a year!

The sale is available to preview here, so you can put a wish list together and be ready to shop until you drop come August 19th OR the dates listed below if you qualify!! First things first, lets take care of some notable dates!

ICON EARLY ACCESS: starts TODAY AUGUST4TH-18TH

AMBASSADOR EARLY ACCESS: AUGUST 7TH-18TH

INFLUENCER EARLY ACCESS: AUGUST 10TH-18TH

INSIDER AUGUST 13TH-18TH

PUBLIC ACCESS: AUGUST 19TH-30TH

After August 30th all prices will go back up and the sale will be over, so make sure you grab what you love before then! Another thing to note is everyone and their mama seems to shop this sale, so things to come in & out of stock. I will do my absolute best to keep y’all up to date if something is out of stock and when it restocks again! That is one great thing about Nordstrom…they are really great at restocking all of the things and pretty quickly BUT because of the volume of shoppers if you see something you love GRAB IT DON’T WAIT, it might be back or it might not!!

My picks this year are separated by department, I have done my best to put together a list of must have items that are actually a good deal and something worth your investment! I am on the look out for the perfect pair of booties, a few staple fall items, comfy workout clothes and things that will work great postpartum. Baby boy will be here in early October and comfort is my number one priority after he makes his arrival! Everything will be linked below and in the LIKETOKNOWIT app for your convenience.

FIRST UP BABY GEAR!!!!

I might have a slight obsession with all things baby & this sale makes some of my favorite items over $200 off!!!

The UPPABABY VISTA V2 literally never goes on sale like EVER and mamas she is on sale for over $200 off for the NSALE. I can never say enough good things about this stroller, it is my favorite baby item ever and the one thing I mention to ever mama as my number one must have, especially if you have more than one little! It converts into a double stroller with just a few add ons. It is such a smooth ride for baby and come with a bassinet which we used with Miller Brooks the first few weeks of his life instead of spending money on another bassinet!

The NUNA RAVA is also on sale for over $100 off which makes it a reasonable price. This convertible carseat has it all and I am its biggest fan. The comfort for baby plus the safety features make it the only carseat I am willing to put my babies in! I am definitely grabbing this for baby boy while its on sale because this never happens!

One other honorable mention is the Como Tomo baby bottles are on sale and definitely coming home with us for baby boy!

ATHETIC WEAR

The ZELA live in maternity AND non maternity leggings are on my must have list this year. I have heard nothing but good things about these and I am beyond excited to try them out. As well as the ZELA live in Joggers they look perfect for postpartum and I have heard they are butter soft, so sign me up. I have linked a few other active wear items like these sports bras, and comfy shorts!

FALL STAPLES WOMENS WEAR

I have been on the lookout for a pink leather jacket, leave it up to Rachel Parcell to deliver. Also this All in Favor ribbed sweater is under $30 and nursing friendly. You can never have enough dresses to get you through the fall/winter and this Top Shop Knit Midi Dress as well as this Socialite V-Neck Sweater dress will be added to my wardrobe! And then of course lets not forget the top seller of life… Spanx Faux Leather leggings, I can say they are worth every penny and I am still just as obsessed with them as I was the first time I put them on! I have a few other items I have my eye on linked below!

Puff Sleeve Crepe Top, Print Long sleeved dress, Blouson Sleeve Textured Sweater, Turnt Bodysuit in Pink, Circle buckle leather belt, Caslon Bishop Sleeve Sweater , Cable Sleeve Cardigan

SHOES

Like any other typical girl shoes are LIFE! You can never have too many & this years selection is AMAZINGGG!! I have been on the lookout for the perfect white bootie and these Bone White Croc booties by Steve Madden have stollen my heart! Also These Oshay Pointed toe booties come in 3 colors and I am obsessed!!! both are under $100 and I can’t wait to try them on! If you have never tried on the Adidas Ultraboost your feet are missing out, they are THE comfiest shoe I have ever out on and the all white option is EVERYTHING!! I’m kind of obsessed with this wedged sneaker in the camel color and these platform sandals and well as these darling heeled mules!

MUST HAVES

Last but not least are my must have accessories, all things beauty and random favs! I have always worn Spanx under my dresses, It just sucks everything in and hides any of my tummy imperfections and love handles that have grown over the years! These Spanx Shaper shorts are my fav! I am always down for a new pair of comfy pajamas & these moonlight dream pajamas look well….. dreamy. I have heard nothing but good things about all of the barefoot dreams products and these socks look like a little piece of heaven for my toesies, plus they would make a GREAT gift! My favorite deodorant of all time is ON SALE and has this girl jumping for joy! if you have never tried the Donna Karen Cashmere mist deodorant you are truly missing out, the 3 pack will be on sale for $66!! Another beauty fav is the Better Than Sex Mascara which comes with a lip plumper as well, also this setting spray from Urban Decay makes for a wonderful christmas gift for that makeup loving friend of yours as well! One more Beauty product to note is this setting powder from Laura Mercier! I love a good wide brimmed hat for fall & this this one from Rachel Parcell is nothing short of perfection & lets not forget about the perfect pair of jeans from Levis!

Valentines day Inpo!

Hey y’all!

Happy February! This month has already been sooo busy for our tiny family. Between Emory visits for our second round of IVF ( frozen cycle), keeping up with my photography business, the blog & being a mama I feel like I haven’t had a second to breath! Miller Brooks is officially on the move and walking everywhere or should I say running……he is so FAST!! Our life seems to be go go go but honestly I’m not complaining! Its definitely helped the days fly by!

Valentines day is honestly one of my favorite holidays, what can I say I LOVE, LOVE! I know a lot of people just brush it off as one of the invented Hallmark holidays but I happen to adore this day to celebrate love. I know it sounds cheesy but honestly where would we be without it? In my opinion the only thing holding the world together is love, kindness and service and I think the foundation of it all is love so why not celebrate it? Human nature is to be unkind & selfish so lets stop the stigma of this so called made up holiday and celebrate the love that you have in your life! Celebrate your gals, your husband or boyfriend, your kids or your parents or even your cute pup, we all have someone to love and that my friend is something to celebrate!

With valentines day coming up quickly I thought it would be fun to put together a few fun outfits to inspire you for the special occasion! And the best part you ask!? They are alllllllll from AMAZON! Yes that means two day prime shipping, so if you are a procrastinator like myself this post is for you! I typically wear small or medium in most styles, I know my body so I have gotten pretty good at deciphering which styles I need in which size but for the most part I wear a medium. I will put how each look fits with the link below!

I loved the idea of switching up the typical V-Day colors for this darling lavender shade! I paired it with a faux leather jacket, a belt & heels for and edgier vibe but love how versatile this dress is! It’s also the perfect dress to carry you into spring!

Runs a little big, if in between sizes I would size down! I’m wearing a size small ( typically would order a medium) and love how it fits! Shop this dress HERE!

Y’all I am DYING over this dress! It literally could not be more perfect for me! I am obsessed with the 3D flower detail & of course no outfit is truly complete without a bow! This dress is under $35 & would be perfect for valentines day, brunch with the girls, a wedding or church! Also a great dress to carry into spring!

This dress runs TTS, I am wearing a medium and have it in the color PINK-B! Shop this dress HERE!

Everyone needs a staple red piece & look no further than this pretty little thing! I love that you can style it on or off the shoulder & how absolutely comfortable this jumpsuit is! Its like wearing put together pajamas! It doesn’t get much better than cute and comfy especially when it comes to date night!

This jumpsuit runs BIG! I would say size down one maybe even two sizes! Wearing a medium but would have preferred a small! Shop it HERE!

xoxo, Amanda

Hi friends! 

I can’t believe we are officially into August, like where did the summer go? We have been so busy trying to make memories over here that I have been neglecting the blog just a little, forgive me!! Miller is 8 months already and I feel like time just needs to SLOW DOWN, like how are you already 8 months old HOW!? I swear he was just in my belly and now we are officially closer to a year old than to my fresh new babe. Insert alllllll the crying faces! I say that as he is sitting next to be pitching a fit….#MOMLIFE, what can you do? He just popped two bottom teeth within the last week & has two top teeth making their debut as well!  Miller Brooks has had a rough go at it lately, poor baby! All of you Mama’s, What are your teething remedies, help a girl out pleaseeeeee!!!!

Speaking of teeth, I had the opportunity to try out the new Smile Brilliant CariPRO Ultrasonic Electric toothbrush and Y’ALL I love it! I was asked to share a true review and my thoughts on their new toothbrush so here we go! 

Let me start off by saying that I have been using a Sonicare Toothbrush for the past 5 years and never in a million years did I think I would ever make any kind of switch. I had braces growing up with a less than perfect smile, I was SO embarrassed of my teeth that I actually got veneers my senior year in high school. It was one of those things that I felt like EVERYONE was staring at, it was my biggest insecurity and I just had to get my smile fixed.  Other than that, I have always had a clean dental report from the dentist and was always complimented on my dental hygiene, probably because I was so obsessed. The Sonicare toothbrush had a great run with me, but with a hefty price tag and limited settings I made the switch to the Smile Brilliant CariPRO and I’m never looking back! The CariPro is first & foremost very reasonably priced & comes with all the bells and whistles so speak! It has five different modes to brush with from sensitive all the way to whitening mode, so depending on your brushing routine you can switch up whichever mode works best for you. I think my favorite mode to brush on is White, it leaves my teeth feeling fresh & squeaky clean 🙂 It’s also very sleek and lightweight, comes with an additional toothbrush head and has a really great battery life! We went on a little weekend trip last weekend. I charged my CariPRO before the trip and it didn’t need a charge until we returned! With one less thing to pack, sign me up! This toothbrush definitely improved my brushing routine and already helped me feel more confident on my journey to a beautiful smile! 

I loved the Smile Brilliant CariPRO Ultrasonic toothbrush so much that I wanted to give one away! All you need to do to enter is follow this link HERE + enter your name & email address! Also make sure you are following me @pearlsandpinkpeonies and for an additional entry make sure to follow @smilebrilliant on instagram! Don’t worry if you weren’t chosen for the giveaway I also scored a little discount code for y’all, because I mean EVERYONE needs this toothbrush in their lives! Use code PEARLSANDPINKPEONIES20 for 20% off!!!! 

I hope y’all have the most wonderful rest of your week!!

Xoxo

Babylist…The Things I Actually Used!

Hey y’all!

There are SO many baby products out there to choose from for your little one! As a first time mom I had no clue what I would actually need, what would make life a little easier & what was honestly just a waste of money. There are just a ridiculous amount of sponsored posts so I really couldn’t figure out what was useful and what wasn’t from other mom blogs out there. Of course there were a few honest post and reviews that were helpful but you just never know what YOUR baby will like, love or hate. So today I have put together a NON-SPONSORED post of baby items I actually love as a first time mama. I really hope this helps all of my sweet mama friends who are looking to put together that perfect baby registry!

1.) UPPABABY Vista

A GOOD STROLLER IS KEY YALL!!! I wish I could politely scream this from the roof tops! Kyle and I were both very skeptical of investing in such an expensive stroller. I mean its for a baby right? and the baby could honestly care less about what gets them from point A to B. Really it’s about convenience & productivity from the mama and papa’s point of view and let me tell you its worth EVERY.SINGLE.PENNY. Uppababy take my money! The Vista has it all from comfort for baby to convenience for mama. It comes with a bassinet, which Miller slept in for the first 3 weeks of his life ( so we didn’t have to buy an additional bassinet). It also comes with the seat which is awesome and perfect once baby likes to sit up and look around a little more than when they were newborns. The Vista also turns into a double stroller if having more than one kiddo is your jam. It seriously is such a smooth ride and really easy to push around! The Uppababy Mesa carseat also fits directly onto the stroller for a wonderful travel system or it has adapters for other carseats to fit on it as well. Also the warranty is amazing, if anything breaks you just contact the customer service team and they will send you the part that broke or even a new stroller if needs be! We have pushed around friends strollers and the Vista just does not even compare, it is on a whole other level and we just love it so much. Its definitely our favorite baby purchase and we tell anyone and everyone who will listen!

2.) The MamaRoo

okay okay I’m sure you have heard mixed reviews but for us this swing was a lifesaver! Miller LOVES it! He’s honestly sitting in it right now as I write this & that is just proof enough, the mamaroo helps me get stuff done! He never sleeps in it at night but he is always down for a GOOOOOD nap in the mamaroo. Miller is 5 months and still fits in it just fine, He will probably use it for at least a few more months. It will be a sad day when he grows out of it! It has many different positions, speeds and motions to choose from and is this mamas saving grace!

3.) The BabyBrezza

This is hands down the BEST invention ever!!! I tried so hard to breastfeed and it just wasn’t working for mama or baby. My milk production was low and Miller needed to supplement with formula. I still breastfed but only a few times a day, the rest of his feedings were formula. The Baby Brezza just makes life soooo much easier if you formula feed! You literally press a button and the formula is made for you. It goes straight into the bottle at the perfect temperature the the perfect amount for your little one. It saves us so much time and energy! Its pretty much a baby Keurig and its the best baby product ever!

4.) Tommee Tippee Bottles

BEST.BOTTLES.EVER! I wish people had told me about Tommee Tippee Bottles from the beginning. So many moms told me that Doctor Browns bottles were the best but honestly we hated them. Maybe we are just lazy but Doctors browns bottles had wayyyy too many parts to wash and so many parts that could get gross and moldy if not washed correctly. We were at TJMaxx one day and saw Tommee Tippy Bottles, we decided to try them and let me tell y’all it was the best decision ever! They have a bottle & a nipple and thats it! The nipples are shaped like an actual nipple so Miller latched really well right away to them. They also have a vent in the nipple that prevents air bubbles, so they help with gas without having that awful tube you have to wash every time. They are very similar to ComoTomo bottles without the price tag and we are all about that!

5.) The Ollie Swaddle

The Ollie Swaddle is not the cheapest swaddle but it is our absolute fav! Its a velcro swaddle that is made out of a really breathable fabric. It grows with your baby. When you decide they no longer need their arms swaddled you can swaddle them with their arms out to transition them to no swaddle. It has a very calming effect and Miller loves this swaddle.

6.) The Dockatot

I won’t say much about it, but for us the dockatot was our saving grace. Miller slept in his dock from the first night he went in his crib and he has slept through the night since he was 4 weeks old. We LOVE it & can’t live without it but to each his own!

7.) Ryan & Rose Pacifiers

We have tried pretty much every paci under the sun. Miller honestly isn’t very picky, as long as he has something to suck on he is a happy baby! BUT with that being said you can tell he has his favorite and its without a doubt the Ryan and Rose Cutie Pat. They come in round and flat nipples depending on what your baby likes ( we went with round and Miller LOVES IT!) It has a teether on the opposite side of the paci, its big enough for Miller to take in & out of his mouth, its silicon and easily washable & it folds into itself for clean transport when its not in his mouth! You can order them through amazon & we are big fans!

8.) Monat Baby Shampoo & Gentle Detangler

There are some baby products that are not worth the money but Monat Baby Shampoo & detangler spray will forever and always make the cut. It not only smells amazing but helps with baby hair loss as well cradle cap and dry skin. It’s tear free, Sulfate & Paraben as well as dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested. Its also cruelty free!

9.) Tubby Todd All Over Ointment

Poor sweet baby Miller had THE WORST diaper rash I have ever seen when he was just a few weeks old. I tried every diaper rash cream I could think of and nothing worked. It was so bad, it would bleed and he would just cry, I had no idea what to do it was just the saddest thing. One of my friends reached out and told me to try Tubby Todd AAO and it worked & I mean within 24 hours his terrible diaper rash was COMPLETELY GONE! I have never used another diaper rash cream since and Miller has never had another diaper rash. That stuff is a miracle worker and will be going in every single baby shower gift that I give from now on! It also works on other skin issues like cradle cap, bug bits, skin irritations, burns or any other skin related issue. Its not just for baby it works for mama too!

10.) Ergo Baby 360

There are so many baby carriers out there but Ergo baby is by far my fav! Miller fits so easily in the carrier without his hips being in a weird position. Its also comfy for mama and the straps don’t slide off of your shoulder. It has a sun visor that flips up to protect baby from the sun or strangers touching your baby if thats not your thing. Baby can sit facing you or facing the world and can hold up to 45 lbs though I don’t think I will be carrying Miller when he is 45 lbs lol! It also comes with an infant insert for when they are tiny. All around we have loved this baby carrier and so does sweet Miller boy!

A few other things on my list that are worth adding to your registry….

Nose Frida, Bubla Steal Diaper Pail, Bonds Wondersuit Zip Up Jammies, Dreft Newborn Laundry Detergent, Boon Lawn Drying Rack, Boon Soak 3- Stage Bathtub, carseat/nursing cover, nursing dress for mama, Boppy Pillow or My Breast Friend Nursing pillow for nursing, Jujube Diaper Bag.

I am by no means an expert on babies or mothering this is just my two cents on what worked for us and what I love as a mama! All of these products changed mama hood for me and I honestly couldn’t live without a single thing on this list! I was not sponsored to talk about any of these products & all opinions are 100% my own! I really hope this helps take at least a little stress off of making your registry & makes the transition to mama hood a little less chaotic! 🙂

Miller Brooks Nursery Reveal

Hey y’all!

Miller Brooks is 5 weeks old and I just feel so blessed to be his mama! He is the most handsome little man that ever lived. I had no idea how much my heart could love until I laid my eyes on him! His sweet baby snuggles make this mama so happy! How did we ever live without him!? He came into our lives with lots of love and a little bit of science & changed our lives forever in the best way possible! Miller is such a good little baby! He sleeps like a champ ( like 6 hour stretches every night kind of champ!) he is obsessed with his paci, lives for snuggles, loves his big puppy sister & is a very hangry little milk monster! We just adore him! Kyle and I look at him everyday and still can’t believe he is ours forever, Mills is one loved little man!

Im so sorry it took so long for me to get his nursery reveal up. Mama life has consumed every second of everyday since he was born and I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. We have finally started to get into a routine and life has slowed down enough for me to be able to put a little more focus back into the blog! I am SO excited to share his nursery with y’all. Kyle and I both worked so hard to make it perfect for him and I am so happy with how it turned out! I knew I wanted something light and warm with pops of emerald. My inspiration came from the thought of new life & growth. We waited so long for a little baby to join our family & we had so much faith that Heavenly Father would answer our prayers! when I think of faith I always think of new life, like a seed that turns into a tree & green just seemed so perfect for the new life coming into our family! We hand picked everything in the nursery with so much love and what a beautiful, peaceful place it has become! I just love rocking him in this special place made just for him. Who knew a room could have so much meaning!?

Life took on such a new meaning when Miller Brooks joined our family. I have never felt a love so fierce not only for our sweet boy but for my loving husband as well. While parenthood is no easy task I have never felt so complete. I knew this was my calling from the beginning and being a mama makes me the happiest girl in the entire world!

Arizona weekend getaway

Hi Friends!

It’s been a little while! Sorry about that, we have just been busy bust getting ready for baby boy to make his arrival! I am officially in my third trimester and I literally cannot believe it! I feel like this pregnancy is flying bye, though EVERYONE tells me that times slows to a crawl once you hit 30 weeks so we shall see!

Kyle and I took a much needed getaway to Scottsdale Arizona a few weekends ago & it was magical to say the least. Its a whole different ball game out there with the beautiful desert, no humidity & soaring temperatures. We spent ALOT of time relaxing by the pool & taking in the beautiful scenery. It’s so different from the south but I especially loved that my hair stayed curled for longer than 5 min outside! Am I right or am I right?

We were lucky enough to stay at the gorgeous HYATT REGENCY SCOTTSDALE RESORT & SPA AT GAINEY RANCH for the weekend and IT.WAS.A.DREAM!!! The grounds are unlike anything we have ever experienced with majestic cacti, palms & true Arizona scenery all around, we felt like we were in a desert paradise! We spent all day Saturday lounging by the adults only pool in our cute little private cabana overlooking the lake and golf course. We felt like royalty and could have spent the entire weekend at that exact spot 🙂 The Rooms at the Hyatt were large & clean and the bathroom was AMAZING! The soft robes and exta comfy bed made for a glorious weekend stay! The staff even noticed I was pregnant & brought plenty of extra pillows! The service was top notch to say the least! Kyle & I felt beyond relaxed and well rested for our 6 am flight the next morning and are itching to get back there again soon! If you are in the Scottsdale area or planning a trip add the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale to your must stay list!

A few must do’s in Scottsdale 

1.) They have a Cafe Rio so you can bet that was our first stop! If you haven’t tried this place you are in for a treat, its my fav! make sure to get the Pork Salad, you won’t regret it!

2.) Take a little trip out to the desert. I am not the most outdoorsy type of girl but hiking & exploring the beautiful Arizona desert is a must! Here is a link to Scottsdale’s best hikes!

3.) Lounge by the pool! Check out the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale for your relaxing day in the sun!

4.) Shop till you drop! Scottsdale Fashion Square in Arizona’s largest mall. It has all of your upscale stores including Nordstrom. Plus lots of places to dine & relax from your shopping spree!

5.) Set up a photoshoot! We took our maternity photos with Amy & Jordan Demos and they did not disappoint! Being from Georgia a destination maternity shoot was on the radar for us from the beginning! we couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate our miracle boy than with our dream photographers in a dream location! Arizona is full or the most gorgeous scenery and beautiful light with no trees blocking that golden hour glow. Remember your trip with the photoshoot of a lifetime!

Traveling has always been a favorite of ours, exploring new places whether it be in the US or internationally has brought us so much joy! We can’t wait to show our sweet boy all of the breathtaking ventures with world has to offer! With that being said what are your fav tips for traveling with a baby!? We are complete newbies to parenthood and can’t wait to hear all about your tips and tricks! leave your advice in the comments below 🙂

Have a wonderful Monday!

Baby Must Have’s!

Hi Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday! It’s always hard to kick off the week after such a fun weekend full of friends & family, but for me it’s one week closer to meeting my little boy so bring it Tuesdays! I have my anatomy scan this week & i’m so excited to see how much our nugget has grown. We are half way there at 20 weeks and I just can’t believe how time has flown so far.  The second trimester has been so nice, I have so much more energy & a MUCH bigger appetite, grow baby grow!

I am a going to be a first time mama and was a bit overwhelmed at how much baby stuff is out there! Am the only one!? I mean really it’s insane. Sometimes I wish someone would just tell me all of the most essential things that I need for baby boy! Luckily I have many mama friends that gave me some advice on  just a few things that were life changers for them and their littles!

First up on the list is the DockATot!

My husband & I have already made the decision to not co-sleep but the DockaTot has so many more uses than just a co-sleeper! I received the Deluxe Plus Dock in Marble, which fits babies ages 0-8 months. It’s so lite, portable & perfect as a traveling bed for baby! Not to mention it’s great to put baby in while getting ready for the day!

Next up is the Binxy Baby!

Y’all I can already tell that this is going to be a life changer when it comes to going shopping! It’s a sweet little sling that you hook onto you shopping cart and strap baby into, no car seats needed for the grocery store, YESSSSSS!!! All of your groceries can fit right under your snuggly baby! Check them out at www.binkybaby.com

Number 3 on my list is the Ollie Swaddle!

Not only does it come in the sweetest little packaging, it makes swaddling baby SUCH a breeze! All you need to do is places baby in the middle of the swaddle and velcro across so he is nice and snuggly, all ready for bed! I received the Ollie Swaddle in Stone and I LOVEEEE the color!  I’m so excited to use the Ollie Swaddle on baby boy, I have a feeling he is going to love it as much as I do! Click HERE to check out how it works!

Number 4 might just be my fav- a Saranoni Blanket!

They are truly the SOFTEST blankies on the planet and I cannot wait to bring baby boy home from the hospital all snuggled up! Stephanie has so many beautifully made blankets in so many colors and prints! Baby boy’s nursery is a palm theme so I had to go with the navy and Palm blanket! It’s just so sweet & soft! I honestly can’t say enough great things about these blankets, your little needs one asap!

Last up are a pair or 2,3,4,5 of Freshly Picked Mocs!

Y’all I have always been obsessed with the Freshly Picked mocs. The second I found out we were expecting a baby boy I ordered a pair of the Oxford soft soles in Cedar just for him! They are so soft and go perfectly with almost ever outfit! I am so excited to see baby boy in his tiny Mocs come December!

 

I know I will be adding SO many things to this list, but I already feel so much more prepared for sweet baby boy to join our family! I would love to hear what your favorite baby essentials are so I can add them to my collection 🙂 Comment below or on our insta with your baby essentials!
