If I can only wear one colour for an entire summer - I'd go with white. It's clean, crisp, easy, not to mention the fact that white repels light and therefore should keep you cool. A white faux leather jacket is the perfect add-on for a breezy summer afternoon / night, and these white cutout oxfords just scream effortless preppy casual put-together understated and a whole lot of other ones that I will omit because run-on sentences are bad.

Baby: Five Months

The past month (2 months actually, since I've been working on this post for so long that it's almost time to have the Six Month post in a few days!) zoomed by like a flash. There just isn't enough time!

A few wonderful milestones have been reached: rolling over, enjoying solids, sitting for a long period of time, etc.. Her vocal abilities have also been improving quite a bit (giggling, babbling, yelling), making us reach for our phones and cameras constantly in order to record everything.

Stripes and Pleated Midi Skirt

A midi skirt is definitely a trend I'm fully embracing - no longer do I need or want to worry about movement restrictions, especially during outings with an active baby. I love the ladylike vibe this midi skirt gives, and how the heavier fabric and pleating add a modern touch. I paired it with a simple striped tee for a casual look, but I imagine a button-down shirt, a cropped top, or even a soft knit sweater would go just as well. Perhaps even some tights and boots for fall and winter. Can't wait.
