The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on through August 6th! Prices go back up on all of their heavily discounted items on August 7th. I’ve had quite a few DMs on Instagram asking about the shoes I was wearing in my previous blog post, so for this post I’ll link all of them with the prices of each!
THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE IS OFFICIALLY OPEN TO EVERYONE! Yay! I’m doing a round-up on my favorite tops that I was lucky enough to score with early access. But first I need to start off by giving Davis some mega props. The first night the sale opened for early access, he got up with me at 4am to shop! He made me coffee while I got to work. It was amazing. He got the best husband award for sure! Now, back to the sale. Items go out of stock rather quickly so don’t wait to purchase something that you really want. On the flip side, Nordstrom is constantly restocking items so it’s possible you could still score something you missed out on if you check back later!
Daniel Wellington is one of my favorite new watch companies. Davis and I both received watches from them two weeks ago, and we are already big fans! Their watches are very well made, and their interchangeable strap feature allows you to dress them up or down. My favorite thing about them is how lightweight they are. When I have it on, I forget I’m even wearing a watch. Big clunky jewelry has been a no-go for me since Oliver started going through the stage of wanting to be held all the time, so these are pretty perfect for me!
When I first found out I was pregnant with Walt I was completely overwhelmed when I walked into Babies-R-Us for the first time. TOTAL sensory overload. I had no idea what I was supposed to get, how most things worked, or what I even needed. Thankfully my older sister, Nicole, sent me an email with all of her top baby products that she thought were crucial.
There are so many brands out there that carry similar products, and it is sometimes hard to know what works well and what doesn’t. We visited multiple baby stores, got a hands on testing experience with our choices, then filled out our registries. We then went home and read reviews on the products we had chosen and made some changes. Reading reviews on Amazon and other similar sites absolutely saved us from making some poor decisions!
I decided to make my own list for all of my new mama friends. Here are twenty of my favorite baby products out of the bajillion out there. I use the majority of these products almost every day and they are seriously so helpful! I also added a new “Shop Baby Products” section at the top of my blog for more of my baby + toddler favorite products. Check it out and let me know what you think!
When I decide to get out of my workout clothes and get dressed for the day, I try and do something cute, but comfy at the same time. Does anyone else get dressed in their workout clothes but hardly ever work out? Haha, it’s just the best mom gear! Anyways, when I do dress cute for the day, I like to keep it toddler/baby friendly. Nothing too short, too low-cut, easy to move around in, easy to nurse in, and not skin tight. Maxi dresses just always seem to crush all those check marks. So, today I’m sharing one of my favorites from Gray Monroe. You can shop my entire outfit below!
I found out about The Ollie Swaddle when I was in my third trimester with Oliver. I must admit, I only bought it because of the name. I didn’t know much about it but knew I had to have it because of the precious packaging. We used it on our sweet Oliver his first night home with us and let me tell you, THIS SWADDLE IS AMAZING. Ollie loves being in it, and he can’t break free!
Finn and Emma Woodland Play Gym is my new favorite baby toy! Oliver is L O V I N G it, which means I am too! I can lay him down underneath it and actually get a chore or two done. It’s made out of 100% birch wood and finished with a non-toxic stain. There are interchangeable dolls/teethers that hang down from the stand. The precious dolls and teethers can be used apart from the stand as separate toys when your babe is older too!
Dressing my littles is something I thoroughly enjoy. I love hearing all the “ohhhs” and “ahhhs” whenever we’re running errands about how cute they are. One of my favorite shops to get their clothes from is Minted Method Shop. They have such adorable trendy clothes for the more modern mom. They carry some of my favorite brands! Minted Method even has a few things for moms and dads, which is always a plus. The Batman shirt and cardigan Walt is wearing is from Minted Method as well as Oliver’s batman onesie.
Jewelry has always been something that I love. I feel like an outfit just doesn’t look complete without jewelry and a pretty lip color. Luckily for me, my sister, Emily, recently started an amazing jewelry line six.twentynine designs. She specializes in unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces. The materials that she uses are sourced from all around the world and are all gorgeous! They range from gold dipped agate and geode slices, to natural or polished wire wrapped stones and arrowheads. She can even do custom jewelry pieces if asked.
