I’m finally sharing our baby shower photos! It was only 6 months ago, lol. Mike and I were going back and forth on whether or not we were going to take photos on this day ourselves with our camera or have someone shoot it for us. We’re so thankful Leslie shot for us because these photos are gorgeous, but also, we were so busy that weekend and we probably would have zero photos from that day.
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Harper learned to roll over from back to belly, so things have been quiet eventful the last couple of days. She’s normally swaddled when she sleeps, but once they start rolling, you can’t have them swaddled. Let’s just say everyone in the Da Silva house has gotten little to no sleep. While rolling over is a natural progression and they eventually get used to it, Harper DOES NOT sleep when her arms are loose. She’s too busy. We’re going to try the Merlin Magic Sleep Suit (which arrives today), to help with the transition. Crossing our fingers.
Happy Friday! Hope you all had an amazing week. My dad and family are in town this weekend and I’m super excited to spend time with them. The last time they were here everything was such a blur as we were only 7 days out from having Harper. Things have changed SO much and I’m just excited for them to see how much Harper has changed. Speaking of Harper, she started laughing this week. It is the absolute BEST! I’m hoping to catch it on Stories for you guys.
As promised, I’m back with my Shopbop Sale try-on’s. This was one of my favorite hauls to-date. I loved everything I ordered, which never usually happens. It also helps that I found my favorite denim shorts of all time. I’ve been on the search for the perfect pair for 2 years… I’ll just warn you now, I will be living in these all summer (more deets on these below). I actually ordered them in this color as well. Now, if only the weather would cooperate!
It’s another Shopbop sale to get excited about!!! Sometimes I wonder why they have these back to back sales like this… are they trying to kill my credit card? I’m also having mixed feelings, I’m so excited to shop spring pieces (and there’s so many good things out right now), but I can’t wear them yet. It’s such a tease, lol. Enough of my complaining, this is such a great sale- receive 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders of $500 or more (includes sale as well). Today, I’m sharing everything in closet that’s part of the sale. Get some of my go-to classic pieces at up to 25% off – Ray-Ban aviators, leather-like leggings, slip on sneakers, striped tee, and long white tees.
Happy Friday! Have any fun plans this weekend? We have some family coming into town, which will be nice. Although, we’re supposed to be getting hit some kind of storm… Ugh, I’m so ready for spring. Speaking of spring, today I’ve rounded up some of the best spring bags all under $100. A lot of these are dupes for designer bags, so for those of you on a budget, this post is for you! I’m loving anything wicker, round, white, and with top handles. What are you favorite bag styles for spring?
I’ve received a ton of questions about Harper and her schedule, so I thought I would share updates by month. It’s also just a good way to document these early stages (when days are still a blur, lol), so I can look back on them and reminisce. Plus, I hope these posts will help other mamas either get tips, resources, or help you feel like you’re not alone. Motherhood is such a joy, but it can also be tough, and there’s no better remedy than feeling like you can relate to someone else.
I’ve always loved home decor, but never felt I was good at it. I knew what I liked when I would browse Pinterest, but recreating it was another story. But, after painting our bedroom a year and half ago (because for me, white is the only way to go), I’ve really embraced the decorating process. Once I started posting our bedroom to Instagram and getting such great feedback from everyone, I thought to myself, okay, maybe I’m not terrible at this. I’m no interior designer, actually far from it, but these days I’m feeling a lot more confident in my home decor skills and just loving the process. I’ve only really put effort into our master bedroom and Harper’s nursery, so actually decorating a whole house, is probably a different story, ha!
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw I scored the Hermes Oran sandals on eBay. They were still quite pricey, but they’re an absolute classic and I know I will get a ton of wear out of them. Lucky for you, there’s actually a great selection of dupes out right now. The Dune London pair are the most similar. They come in black, white, and tan and will cost you around $100. The Steven Greece slides are also very similar and at a great price point. Sam Edelman also does a very similar dupe as well. There’s a ton of colors in this one and they’re under $80!
