Date Night

LOFT Sailer PantsThis might be the last time you see me in these pants, but they’ve been great up until my 25 week mark. I really wanted to try and find pieces throughout my pregnancy that I can hopefully style post-baby too. I wore these to work with a peplum sleeve black top and plan to pair them with chunky, cozy sweaters in the fall and winter.

Sailor Pants / Knot Mules

LOFT Sailer Pants I bought these mules in both colors because I loved the style so much, and they’re a really manageable height. My sister tried them on but unfortunately they weren’t as comfortable for her. The way they’re cut, they could hit the top of your foot in a way that makes it harder to walk in them, but I think it’s definitely worth trying them and walking around inside before giving them the final green light. I wore the pale pink pair to my family bridal shower with this dress and I’ve also worn the black version with this maternity dress. They’d look just as good with distressed boyfriend jeans and a white button down.

LOFT Sailer Pants LOFT Sailer PantsIf I’m being honest here, I can’t quite remember the last time I dressed up for a date night. For the most part, I’m a homebody, and lately, I’ve been so tired on the weeknights and weekends that I haven’t been up for leaving the house much. But I thought it’d be fun to put this look together as it would work if you’re expecting or not!

In other exciting news, Bill and I finally booked a trip to Colorado at the end of the month to escape and relax for a few days. We’re staying in Gypsum but plan to take day trips to Vail and Denver and maybe Aspen. If you have any recommendations, we’d love to hear them!

  • This summer marked two years since my brother passed away, and we’re nearing a year since we lost my mom to cancer. I've been working on a post about how to help a grieving friend for a while now and finally hit publish tonight. Grief is messy, but I've been extremely fortunate to be surrounded by an incredible support system and wanted to share some of the things I've appreciated most (and let’s be honest, I’m probably forgetting something). I’m also feeling extra thankful for the best snuggles from our little angel baby. She came when we needed her most 💗
  • Missing my mom more than ever this week and so wishing she could’ve met Ainsley. She would’ve been the best Grandma. She may not have ‘liked people’ 😉 but she loved her family (okay and her friends) more than anything. So grateful to have our raw wedding video footage to relive moments like this (with her and Uncle Kev) and thanks for the commentary @juneandjae ❤️
  • I blinked, and you weren’t a newborn anymore. You still look just like your dad, and I’m trying to pass my love for stripes onto you already. We can’t thank @lqmke enough for sending us Ainsley’s first @macandmia box that I shared more about in my Stories (I want a pair of these pajamas in my size, please). I also included a link in my bio for $20 off your first box. Use the link and stylist code LINDSAYF to make sure you get the same stylist as our sweet girl 💗
  • I’m still living in comfy joggers and button down tops, but I’m heading out to dinner tonight and excited to pull out some of my favorite pieces from last year. I splurged on the Stuart Weitzman OTK boots as a pre-baby “to me, love me” gift but didn’t love the fit for my height (I’m 5’2”). I’ve tried three other flat, OTK options from Nordstrom but still haven’t found anything I like as much as this $40 pair from @target. I cut the ties in the back because they seemed really long, and you definitely have to tie them tight to hold them in place but for the price, you can’t go wrong! Swipe to see a close up 📷. I linked the boots and similar tops and skirts in the @liketoknow.it app to easily recreate the look. http://liketk.it/2y8UW #liketkit #LTKunder50 #targetmyway #everydaymadewell
  • I’ve said it before, but motherhood truly is the hardest, most rewarding and humbling job. It’s questioning yourself all day long, but ultimately knowing what’s best for your little one. It’s wanting 20 hands to do more but also just wanting your own two hands to hold her a little longer. It’s crying because of the scary firsts but then crying tears of joy when you see the first smile. It’s worrying something’s wrong in the middle of the night and looking at her only to find her sleeping peacefully, giving me a friendly reminder to “relax mom”. I’ve waited and watched her put herself to sleep only to start missing her the second she closes her eyes. I clipped her thumb the first time I tried to cut her nails. I’ve spilled my breast milk. I’ve had days where I’ve done too much and days that I didn’t leave my bedroom. My body leaks when I least expect it. My back hurts from leaning over the bassinet to comfort her. Last night, I felt the most tired I’ve ever felt in my entire life only to feel completely recharged when she curled her head into my chest after her first feeding this morning. I’m sad thinking how fast she has grown but so proud of her already at nearly seven weeks. Ainsley Rose, you’re our greatest gift. Thank you for making me a mom. #honestmotherhood #motherhoodunplugged
