Ainsley’s Fall Wardrobe

Toddler Girl's Fall Wardrobe

I may not go all out when it comes to decorating our home for fall, but as we transition to a new season, I couldn’t help but stock up on some new pieces for Ainsley. I’m trying not to go overboard and making sure we can mix and match anything that we’re buying. While this buffalo plaid is a bit more bold, my sister has a nearly identical top and naturally Ainsley needs to twin with my twin as often as possible 😉

I’ve mentioned it on my Instagram Stories before, but I have the Banana Republic credit card so I put most of my Rewards towards Ainsley’s wardrobe at Gap and Old Navy in addition to staples for Bill and me. I also wait to purchase anything until it’s at least 30% off but usually wait for the 40% off code to kick in.

Here are some of my favorites from Target. I’m really liking the new Art Class line. Ainsley is a 4 in shoes right now but I got these boots in a 5 to wear with socks and then grow into through the fall and winter.

I’ve heard great things about See Kai Run shoes and plan to order this pair from Nordstrom. She currently wears these at daycare.

For daycare, I still send her in bodysuits but am starting to do more tops & pants combinations. She lived in these all summer. We have 6-7 of them and rotate them each week. I also got these bodysuits and these pants at Target to have in her backup bin. Sure, some days I’ll put her in a few of the pieces above, but I’d be lying if I said her clothes came home in great shape.

And while this post is mostly about Ainsley, here are my top picks from Banana Republic right now for fall.

  • Just a friendly reminder while you’re organizing and purging that a dress up box or two to pass down to your littles is always worth it. My sister dropped a bin off in our garage this week, and Ainsley has been loving dress up time almost as much as I have. So glad my mom saved these ❤️
  • I’ve never talked about cookie dough so much, but in the last two weeks, it has been a hot topic in my DMs. And honestly, the chats with you have been a welcome distraction ☺️ Thank you for supporting my frozen cookie dough consumption especially when it’s before 10 a.m.  You guys are the best. I figured I’d post the details here so it’s easier to find when you’re ready to do some baking! I use the @nestletollhouse recipe (because it’s the best, obviously). I swap the 2 eggs for 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce and recently learned about toasting the flour for 5 minutes at 350°. I mix everything as usual, chill for a bit and use my cookie dough scooper to put them in a glass container before they go straight to the freezer. I made it 30 years without swapping ingredients or toasting the flour, so zero judgement here if you just follow the regular recipe. There’s kind of a lot more going on in the world to worry about, so you do you. Some FAQs: I don’t think the applesauce changes the taste, and I have not baked these to know how they turn out. I’m on a strict frozen cookie dough diet over here 🤰🏼 Enjoy!
  • Behind this wall lies 30+ stuffed animals. If you can’t see them from this one angle of the house, it’s like they don’t exist, right?  http://liketk.it/2MuiW #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome #mypotterybarn #fifthandroseathome
  • I’ve gotten a few questions about if I’m getting dressed every day while working from home. I’m not sure about you, but we’re doing a lot of video chats for our meetings which I actually love - it keeps people more engaged and productive plus it’s fun to see your colleagues. The short answer is it’s a mix - some days I just switch to a comfy yet presentable top but don’t throw on any makeup and some days I put on a fun outfit and even throw on some mascara. It depends on what my work calendar looks like and if I’m presenting during a meeting. But just to be very clear, slippers are a required part of my WFH wardrobe. I’ve also thrown the seasons out the window and am wearing whatever I want from my closet. http://liketk.it/2Mizd #liketkit @liketoknow.it #27weeks
  • Staying home this weekend and slowly getting ready for baby brother’s summer arrival. I haven’t quite been able to articulate my thoughts lately because they’re all over the place. There aren’t enough thank yous for our essential workers and my heart aches for those whose big plans have changed - from weddings to families working through IVF and so, so much more. 
I don’t take it for granted that my job right now is to stay home and do the best I can to work from home and take care of Ainsley. That doesn’t mean that’s not hard in very different ways. I’m trying my best to recharge on the weekends but also want to work on my children’s book, blog and spend quality time with my family as opposed to counting down to the next nap or bedtime. Not to mention catch up on work that I didn’t get to during the week. While we have more time at home, it’s certainly different time. 
All this to say, we’re all just trying our best right now and feeling a lot of feels. If working out makes you feel better, great! If a new show on Netflix brings you joy, also great. Same with tackling a list of house projects because it gives you a sense of control (hello, purging all of our closets again) or tackling new recipes in the kitchen. Do what you need to do. For me that’s enjoying some chocolate chip pancakes with my family this morning and making a fresh batch of cookie dough to freeze for the week. What are you most looking forward to today?
