A day in the canals

I adore LA for its diversity and get excited when we venture into areas we don’t frequent very often.  The Venice Canals are one of those beautiful places.  It’s such a gorgeous tranquil area nestled in the city.  A perfect spot to visit on a day with my babe.  Since Carlota has passed her 4 month leap she is a whole new baby.  She enjoys going on walks and finally is a happy girl when in her stroller.  I love exploring new neighborhoods with her, and watching as she takes in the world around her.  I can’t wait until Carlota is old enough for me to show her this blog and the journeys we have taken together.

One of my favorite summer pieces has been this floral kimono from Shop Pink Blush.  I love the soft and airy feel it gives any outfit.  I usually pair it with a simple white tee and jeans.  Adding it to my usual mom uniform makes me feel little more glamorous.  It’s such a versatile piece. I’ve used it as a beach coverup, worn it for a day in the park, a night out with the girls etc..

Palms and stripes

I always love a striped shirt.  Seems like I can’t get enough.  I’m such a fan of this tank from Shop Pink blush.   I’m obsessed with longer shirts lately.  It must be my new mommy style or something that stuck with me from my maternity days.  This tank has it all.  It can be worn as a maternity shirt, nursing shirt, or as just a tank.  I love the lightweight material, the color and striped pattern.  The best part is that it’s currently on sale at Shop Pink Blush.

I kept todays look simple as usual and paired the tank with skinny jeans and a white clutch.  Lately I’ve been living in flats.  I don’t dare try to mess around with heels when I’m out with my babe.  She still needs to be in my arms so much, that I know it could be a potential disaster in heels.

Shop Pink Blush

Lately I have been all about finding new online boutiques.  Maybe it’s because I don’t have as much time to go shopping now with the little one, or because I love finding chic items that are not readily available at every corner.  Whatever the reason, it has been my current obsession.  Instagram and Pintrest are great places to find these boutiques.

My eyes were opened during my pregnancy.  It was difficult to find maternity clothes in stores, and online shopping became my go to.  I came across Pinkblush Maternity/ Shop Pinkblush and was so excited.  Its an online company that has regular clothing, maternity clothing, and nursing friendly items.

I love this dress because it can be used for all the above.  Its loose enough to fit a growing belly, easy to use while nursing and does not look like a maternity dress.  This dress is perfect for a day out shopping with the girls or a beach day with the family.  I think it will be on repeat a lot this summer.
