One of my favorite things about living downtown, other than being so close to everything, is the energy you feel when you walk outside. I usually go for 2-3 walks a day – taking the dogs out after lunch, sometimes if Kennedy is fighting her afternoon nap I’ll stick her the stroller and do a few laps around the block, and then we usually do a family walk when Russell gets home from work. I’m obsessed with my UPPAbaby Vista stroller, but sometimes walking 2 dogs and pushing a stroller by myself can get a little crazy. I have been using the Baby K’tan carrier since Kennedy was a newborn.
Wearing your baby feels special and it’s also really nice to have full use of your hands. The Baby K’tan lets you wear your baby in multiple positions and it’s very easy to learn how to use it. We also have the Baby Bjorn, which Russell uses all the time, but I love that this wrap is so convenient to roll up and stick in your diaper bag. It doesn’t take up a lot of space so I take it pretty much everywhere with us. Kennedy went on her first plane ride about a month ago and I wore this wrap the whole time through the airport and on the plane…
I’ve been wearing chambray a lot this summer and I love how these dresses can be dressed up or down. My dress is from H&M last year, so below I linked a few similar styles. I actually found Kennedy’s Kate Spade romper at TJ Maxx recently. Her headband is from another one of my favorite Etsy shops, fancy free finery. They make the cutest felt flower headbands.
Here are some of my favorite chambray looks for summer:
