Barefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot Blonde TOP: Helmut Lang // JEANS: Rag & Bone (sold out) very similar and on sale, here // BOOTIES: Rag & Bone // HAT: Nordstrom also lovvve this and this one // LIPSTICK: MAC ‘Vegas Volt’ // DIAPER BAG: Petunia Pickle Bottom

I got this hat from Nordstrom about a year ago and it has made MANY appearances on the blog (here, here, and here to name a few) and I wear it all the time. It was my first hat ‘splurge’.. before that I always just bought hats from Forever 21 or H&M (still do!) but it is nice to have one really nice hat because you can totally tell a difference in the quality and structure of it and I have received endless complements on this hat. Unfortunately this particular one is out of stock now but I have been loving this and this one and cannot decide which I should order next! They both are such classics and especially being a new mom I have plenty of greasy hair days where a hat is the perfect go to.

Hope you guys had a good weekend! We finally made it to California after a stop in lavender fields, a sleepover in Vegas, and a spilled milkshake in our brand new car (thanks to Chauncey for cleaning that up for us.. what are dogs for?) I am still getting used to road trips with a baby and getting the hang of the whole ‘lean over the car seat and breastfeed while driving’ thing but I think we still have some practice to do (and no, I am not the one driving, never thought I would have to specify that one, haha). We had the best weekend here in San Diego though…. even though I was super bummed because I had been looking forward to picking strawberries for WEEKS and the guy told us Saturday they would be open so we had planned on going Saturday… Luckily I called to check the hours before we left and he said they closed early for the season! Boo. But thats okay, there definitely is not a shortage of fun things to do here, plus my husband even watched Legally Blonde with me one night and I felt like such an accomplished wife. Today we are going whale watching and I am crossing all my limbs that we see dolphins.

Have a good day everyone! xo

  1. I spent pretty much two years of my life in San Diego! My boyfriend went to college over there, so I was there pretty much every weekend, but I love it! Such a great place to be. After her graduated, he came back to Orange County. We miss it though!

  2. Please, please, pretty please do a hair tutorial for these beautiful waves you have in these pictures… I ABSOLUTELY ♡ them! How did you achieve them? What curling iron/wand did you use??

  3. hahaha what a riot, I can only image you trying to breast feed in the car. Now, that is talent.

  4. Leaning over breastfeeding, that is the trick to roadtrips. Rad that you figured it out already!

  5. You look great by the way. People get so self righteous with this “what to do or not to do”while breast feeding… !Your baby is cute too.

  6. I am going to have to say go with the black hat…the other is pretty similar to the one you have…and I must say, the black is so mysterious and just really stands out! I love them both though!

    Have a fabulous day 🙂

    Toodles,

  7. are you being serious when you said breastfeeding whilst driving??

  8. I really really really hope you are not “breastfeeding while driving”. That would be incredibly stupid, on soooo many levels.

    1. I reeeaally hope you’re not serious. Of course I’m not breastfeeding while driving…. Unfortunately my boobs can’t stretch to the backseat

      1. I loved that you shared about that! My little guy still hates riding in the car, and that was the ONLY way to get him to calm down was to breastfeed him in the car seat. My back would hurt the next day from the weird position!
        On a side note – what’s the best way to ask you a couple questions about your hair? I wish I could hire you to do mine! I told my hair stylist your color combo (7n, and highlights every 2) And unfortunately my hair did not come out the tone of blonde like yours which is what I’ve been striving for for over 10 years! lol!

      2. Bahahaha!!! What do you mean your boobs can’t stretch to the backseat!?! You should probably speak to a doctor because something is definitely wrong!! ;p

    2. I’m just dying laughing at your “never thought I’d have to clarify that one” comment. I had to check the comments to see if someone ACTUALLY asked and now I can’t stop laughing. You poor thing with some of the things people focus on in your posts!!

  9. Your hat is so cute! I have never been able to lean over and breastfeed ha! I guess my boobs are just too small! (sorry if that is TMI) I hope you guys have a fun trip 🙂 And it is so true, traveling with a baby is so different! I still don’t like traveling alone with my baby girl for anything longer than 30 minutes, and she is almost 6 months old!
