I actually took advantage of the sale this time and bought myself some new boots. Once upon a childless time, I bought myself new shoes on the semi-regular. No special reason for each purchase – it was on sale, it was cute, I wanted it, etc. People always say it (I’M ABOUT TO SAY IT), but it’s true – things change when you have kids. Priorities change, disposable income changes, amount of free time able to be devoted to leisurely browsing the internets for fashunz changes. Next thing you know, you haven’t bought yourself new ankle boots in nearly three years and you realize you are wearing several pairs of boots that are almost 7 years old. Side note – shoutout to Minimarket and Acne for making really well-made shoes! Them Swedes know what they’re doing.So I finally bought the classic Rachel Comey Mars booties. I had been eyeing them for years (since the mid-2000’s when every blogger had them, RIGHT?), and finally decided WHY NOT? Nothing fancy, minimal, casual but pulled-together. The two boots in my regular rotation are my Acne Pistol boots and my Isabel Marant Dicker boots, both of which have a black leather upper and brown wood sole, so I had been wanting a pair of boots with black on black upper and sole. They are supposed to arrive today in the mail, so here’s hoping they’re perfect.
In a past life, I was a fashion blogger. Now that I have a mini-me, there is, of course, an expectation that my offspring dress with a certain level of swag. In theory, and in my mind, this brought visions of Beet dressed completely in monochromatic-Scandinavian-minimal-organic-quirky-omg-wtf-instagram-worthy ensembles. IN REALITY, Beet rotates through the same 3 pairs of leggings every week – including this faded, pilly pair of blue ones from Baby Gap. They’re just so soft and well-fitting, I always find myself grabbing them. And I didn’t even buy them – they were hand-me-downs!
What I found to be more realistic ~outfit goals~ was to have a foundation of regular basics, but to have a few steezy pieces sprinkled in. Enter: Sailor Janes, purveyor and curator of cool kids clothes and kids fashion. They got all the hits! Rylee & Cru, Mini Rodini, Goat Milk – love all these designers. So you got your basic leggings on the bottom, but a cool kid shirt on top.
I’ve partnered with Sailor Janes for a $50 gift card to their site!

In light of recent events in Paris, I started looking through my old photos of our trips to Paris and realized that I never posted the photos of our most recent trip from last year, March 2014. I basically got pregnant immediately after our trip, which obviously distracted me for a good while! So a year and a half late, but here are some of my favorites from the trip. We love you, Paris. <3
You can also peek at the photos from our previous trip to Paris in 2011 here.
