A Spring Day in Annapolis

This past weekend, my mom, sister and I spent the day in Annapolis, Maryland. We had so much fun walking around town, shopping, lunching and laughing. Aubrey loved looking at the boats and the ducks and we all enjoyed people watching and the live music. There are some awesome restaurants there; one of our favorites is Harvest Wood + Grill Tap. They have amazing fried oysters and a fun bar-like casual atmosphere right on the water. We also stopped by our favorite boutiques, 3 Sisters, The Lucky Knot and Kokopelli (among others!). A perfect day trip from D.C. or Baltimore!

Blue Striped Cold Shoulder

This top is the epitome of spring fashion — blue stripes, cold shoulder sleeves and ruffles! I got it at a store I discovered in Boston recently called Primark (think H&M meets Ikea) for under $20! They have everything from clothing to shoes, home goods, baby clothes, luggage, makeup and more. The prices were unbelievable, so you can get a bunch of trendy pieces that you’ll only wear for the season and not feel guilty about spending the money (I went a little nuts there, so you’ll see a ton in future blog posts!). Pair with classic accessories and the options are endless…unfortunately, you can’t shop with them online yet, but I have a feeling they’ll popping up in many cities soon!

Burgundy and Leopard Print

A few years ago when they couched leopard print as a neutral, I was totally on board. It’s the perfect pop of pattern for any accessory and gives every outfit a little more personality. I love our “seeing spots” needlepoint cuff because it evokes neutral colors and also has gold shimmery threads that catch the light at just the right angle. For running errands over the weekend, this outfit was comfortable and fun. I paired it with a bright pink lip because I’m willing spring to get here quickly!

Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag Review

Before Aubrey was born, I did a lot of research trying to find the perfect diaper bag. After a ton of deliberation, I ordered Petunia Pickle Bottom’s Captivating Constantine Downtown Tote from Pottery Barn Kids and I’m so glad I did! The bag has a glazed coated canvas and water-resistant interior so it’s easy to wipe down, which as new mamas know, it’s essential for any product. Messes are frequent, and taking a quick baby wipe to the bag makes cleaning up a cinch (hello, spilled bottles!). It’s the perfect size to stash under the stroller and the compartments are great — six places to keep bottles and sippy cups, diapers, snacks and toys. It also comes with a washable changing pad and hard plastic wipes case. I chose the gray and white pattern because it matches everything and is pretty versatile in terms of seasons.

What diaper bag or similar product do you use? Doug uses the Storksak backpack on our outings with Aubrey and loves it because it’s a man’s diaper bag in disguise. #dadbrand 😉
