Crop tops. No longer are they only for those Coachella millennials, friends. They are for YOU AND ME, TOO! This one by Reformation is a favorite. It’s a really comfortable t-shirt material, and very flattering on. I need it in black too. I’ve found it to be more functional than expected, I wear it at least once a week.
May is the time of year when I’m finally coming out of the cave of hibernation. And now that Chloe is a bit older (9 months), I’ve been looking for more fun activities to do with her too! Because I find it so difficult to find great events, I thought I’d share a few with you!

I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite jewelry companies of the moment with you this week!
I've been swooning over this minimalist brand ever since it opened in Georgetown. The shop is not only incredibly beautiful, but their pieces are ethically sourced and sustainable. Plus - for every purchase, a book is given to a child in need. I love their selection of jewelry and recently got their circle necklace - it's gotten me so many compliments!
You guys know of my love for Sophie Blake. I was obsessed with her pieces for years, and saved up for my first bracelet. I've been in love ever since! She has become an incredible friend of mine who I admire not only for her incredible art and work ethic, but for her beautiful heart and irreplaceable friendship.
Vintage jewelry has such a special place in my heart. The owner of Diament curates the greatest selection of jewelry - I have a ring and necklace I've been wearing on repeat from this spot. Diament is local to the DC area too so be sure to check out her shop in The Wharf!
Just know that all the IT girls have Missoma necklaces. The design collaborations with Lucy Williams, a fellow blogger, have stolen my heart. While I don't own any Missoma pieces yet, they're on my Wish List! My girl Natalie wears them all the time so in my book, if it's good enough for Natalie, it's good enough for me! :D

Nothing makes me feel younger than sporting an ADIDAS sweatshirt. It brings my back to my high school days…playing sports, but also being a bit girly. And now that I’m all grown up, it’s come back into style full force.. It’s giving me all the “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool mom” vibes, and I AM HERE FOR IT.
