The slouchy tunic for the win!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

I can’t believe Holiday season is already upon us!!  It’s that time of year where I’m typing this blog post sitting with Carlota in our matching Christmas PJs.  I wish it was Holiday season all year round.  I’m so excited it’s Thanksgiving and can’t wait for Carlota to have her first Turkey dinner.  This time around Carlota is so much more aware and engaged I can’t wait to show her all our traditions and make some new family memories with her.

While everyone is getting ready for Black Friday and Holiday shopping I wanted to share a great tunic from Mint Julep boutique.  It’s a comfy staple item that every girl needs in their closet.  It’s perfect to dress up and wear out and about or keep casual lounging around at home.  They come in many different colors and are solid or baseball jersey style like the one I’m wearing.  Using the links provided you can get them for 50% off and under $25.  Perfect for your Black Friday shopping list!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I’m so thankful for all of your support.

With Love,

Andrea

Our New York Adventures + GIVEAWAY

Fall in the city is my favorite, and it was just as magical as I remembered it.  The weather couldn’t have been better and it was perfect for exploring the city with Carlota.  My husband and I were nervous about our first flight with her.  Would we be that couple with the baby that won’t stop crying?!  Not to mention….how many bags would we need to take with us for a 4 day trip?  Do we bring our large stroller….get an umbrella stroller….the list went on and on.  We knew we needed to pack as light as we could but also be able to walk around the city with everything we needed for Carlota.  We packed her diaper bag with only the essentials, brought our Bugaboo stroller and Ergo Carrier, and it was the perfect option for us.  Thank goodness she was a perfect angel on the flight.  She slept for take off and landing and was happy for most of the trip.  She gets a little fussy when we sit down with her for too long so a couple of trips along the isles were the magic touch.

We walked all over Manhattan and even ventured to the underground for her first Subway ride.  The New York subway line is not really made for strollers and babies, but we managed.  I’d have to say Carlota’s favorite was Central Park.  We put her in the leaves for photos and she was having so much fun playing and eating them.  I enjoyed exploring and walking around the city with my family.

I loved being able to wear my boots and fall layers without needing to be bundled up.  Thankfully we brought the cooler weather back to LA.   What are your favorite places to visit in the city?
