2) My favorite breakfast these days is triple berry chia seed pudding.
Just noticed this bowl is chipped... Bummer
My super easy "recipe" is to mix together 1/4 c chia seeds, 1 c milk, and 1 c Greek yoga. It thickens up in the fridge overnight and in the morning I add a drizzle of maple syrup and all the berries. Peaches are good too. Swede is also a fan! We usually share two breakfasts from one batch. The only problem I have is remembering (and being motivated) to mix it up the night before!
3) My favorite item of clothing right now is this A-Line tunic from Garnet Hill. Obviously there's enough room to be 27-weeks pregnant, but it's not specifically a maternity item, so I'm hoping it'll work now and later. Although... Looking at this photo I'm not entirely sure it's that flattering right now, Hmmm. I don't think I care though. I'm all about being comfortable these days!
You'll know it's really fall here when I stop wearing my Chacos
Before I move on to the next favorite... Let me complain for a minute about how Garnet Hill still charges shipping & handling fees. It drives me crazy to pay shipping for clothes if I don't end up keeping them. $10+ for the privilege of trying something on? Luckily this tunic worked out but I hesitated for a long time whether to buy it or not because of the dreaded shipping and handling fees.
4) I am not much of an interior decorator. Our house is mostly comprised of mismatched pieces picked up over the years. It's not that I wouldn't like it to look like a Pottery Barn catalog... I'd just rather spend my time and money elsewhere. I didn't "do" a nursery for Swede at all. We plunked a mini-crib with an attached dresser/changing table and an old armchair in a corner of the guest room and called it good. Baby #2 will most likely get similar treatment, although I am in love with these two prints from Etsy, and think they would look great in a nursery if I can get my act together.
This is the shop they are from, although it's on a break until late September.
5) I know it goes without saying that Swede is a favorite all the time! But I am really enjoying watching her personality develop. Shopping for her has been so fun, but I'm looking forward to when she'll start picking out her own clothes. I'm just so curious what her "style" is going to be like! Currently it involves wearing three headbands all at once.
Luckily she also likes this puffin print dress from Boden which I couldn't resist!
What are you enjoying this month???
