Oh summer, how I love you. I love warm days with the sun shining down on my face and feeling the warmth just all around me. After our long Chicago winters, I always long for summer days. A couple weeks ago we took full advantage of summer and made a small day trip to Lake Geneva. We had a beautiful day of exploring the quaint little shops, indulging in some chocolate and ice cream, and just enjoying the water. Of the whole time we spent out there though, my favorite moment actually though was when it was time to feed Kai. I sat down on a bench next to the harbor and just watched the water gently move. It was so peaceful and happy. We've had what you can call one of the toughest months of our lives this past month but in the midst of all the craziness, I come back to this moment and find some peace and love.
I wore this cute little dress from the Rachel Parcell Everyday Shop on our little day trip and it was the perfect pick for the day. It's super lightweight and it buttons down the front, so it was perfect for nursing Kai. I was able to discreetly feed him out in the open yet we were both comfortable and not too hot. The dress is still available online and I hear that she's having a major sale on almost all her items starting tomorrow! She is having a pop up shop at the Rachel Parcell Office in Utah and there's talk of including the sale online so that everyone can shop it. I also am completely in love with these wedges. I've been wanting them for a couple years now and finally pulled the trigger last month. They always seem to be out of stock when I go to buy them but Shopbop finally seems to have a good inventory of them because they are still available! I love how neutral they are and they are so comfortable! Our day in Lake Geneva was the first time I wore them and I was comfy in them the whole day.
Kai's cute little Locally Grown outfit from Target is quite literally my favorite outfit he has. I dress him in it all the time. His 6 month milestone photos? Yep, this outfit. He's a serious outfit repeat offender but oh well! I love that the overalls are short and keep him cool and the color is just so cute. I almost always have a bandana bib on him to catch all that baby drool and spit up that happens throughout the day so we don't have to do a bunch of outfit changes all day every day. That's my little mom hack for the day for all of you! The one he's wearing here says "New to the Crew" which is just so perfect because we call ourselves the Cabrera Crew. Kai's Mimi bought it for him back when he was first born and I believe she got it at TJ Maxx. TJ Maxx is so great for baby stuff because it's cute but actually reasonably priced! So when in doubt, TJ Maxx it is.
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week and be sure to follow me on Instagram for some daily dose of the Cabrera Crew!
