Adding some flare

I’ve been living in my skinny jeans for years.  Other than my boyfriend jeans, you wouldn’t find me wearing any other style of denim.  Recently I’ve jumped on the flare bandwagon when I found this perfect pair.  I love the high waist and braided accents.  With my short torso, high waisted pants aren’t always flattering on my figure.  Maybe the detailed pockets are the magic piece, but as soon as I put these on I felt like they were made for me.

I’m very mindful of dressing for my figure or at least I like to think so!! Not everything that’s on trend will suit every body type.  I think it’s important to find those pieces that are stylish and suit you, rather than trying to wear everything that’s trending at the moment.

Carlota is rocking these adorable baby overalls from Old Navy.  Finding cute affordable baby clothes is always at the top of my list.  I’ve found so many fashionable items for Carlota at Old Navy and haven’t had to break the bank.  There is always some sort of sale going on there, on top of the already reasonable prices.

I can’t believe Christmas is just a few days away.  Are you ready for the holidays?  2015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Web-542015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Print-402015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Web-412015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Print-632015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Web-612015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Print-522015_09_28_Santa Monica_With Love Andrea_Print-49

Peek – A BOO

Happy Halloween!!  After our visit to the Pumpkin Patch we were in the festive spirit at the Pi-Henderson household.  I knew we needed to get photos of Carlota in her first Halloween costume, and ended up having a full fledge festive photo shoot. Using the pumpkins we brought home from the patch, some festive candles and a smoke machine….we were all set.  Pinxo (our Boston Terrier) didn’t want to be left out; so out came his pumpkin costume and the final puzzle piece was in place.

Carlota was so excited for these pictures.  She was chatting away and sitting so still for the camera.  As long as we had her chew bead necklace and the little pumpkins she was a happy little camper.  Carlota is in the phase of putting everything  in her mouth and chewing on it.  The invention of “Chewllery” has been a lifesaver.  We got ours from Two Brothers and Olivia and Carlota just loves it.  Their necklaces are made using 100% food grade silicone beads, BPA free and FDA approved and organic juniper and apple wood.  They have many different styles. (You can receive free shipping with Code ANDREA.)

 Although Carlota was pretty festive in this outfit, it is not her Halloween costume.  I can’t wait to get her all dressed for her first Halloween with her friends.  What will you dress up as?

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Months 3 and 4 with Carlota

How is Carlota already 4 months old?  Time needs to slow down..this girl is going to be headed to school in a blink of an eye.

Month 3

Carlota is constantly moving around and exploring the use of her limbs.  She doesn’t understand the concept of sitting still.  She started daycare 3 days a week and has adapted very well.  She made her first painting for us, and gets along well with her classmates and teachers.  She loves being swaddled for her naps and looking at herself in the mirror.  She is starting to learn how to roll over.  When she’s on her back she likes to roll onto her side, especially when there is a toy in her vicinity.  She is finally starting to take notice of her toys and Pinxo (our Boston Terrier).

We took Carlota to get her ears pierced.  She did so great! There were a couple of tears but as soon as she was comforted she calmed down and was back to her smiley self.  Carlota also had her first swimming lessons or introduction to the water.  This requires its own blog post since it was so magical and special for us.  She loved the water and floated with me just holding her head above the water,  She has also started loving bath time and post bath baby massage.

 Month 4

4 months copy 2

You can definitely tell that Carlota is undergoing her 4 month leap/growth spurt.  She is becoming more of a little girl and less of a newborn.  As much as I’m loving watching her grow and conquer all these milestones it makes me sentimental to think my baby won’t be my little baby forever.

Carlota has finally perfected the roll over and likes to do it all the time.  She won’t stay laying on her back for long, and quickly moves to her favorite tummy time position.  She is much more able to amuse herself on her play mat and with her toys.  This also means that she has graduated from sleeping all swaddled up to using her sleep sack.  She is still working on mastering this transition.

She loves chewing on our fingers and toys.  She is in full teething mode already.  Carlota is starting to be interested in what we are eating and drinking.  She loves to talk to us and complain and make bubbles.  She still hates the car and car seat, but has started to like the stroller.

Thankfully Carlota is still a mama’s girl….I’m hoping to keep that up forever!!
