TIE-BACK SWEATER

Old toys, unused hand-me-down furniture that had been stored in the basement for the entire eight years we lived there, shoes, random decor, clothes, linens, you name it. I’m afraid I might have gone a tad overboard though because my closet has been left with very few cold weather layers. Either there’s an unpacked box somewhere with all my missing clothes (unlikely) or some Philly AIDS Thrift shopper is enjoying my fall wardrobe. Hopefully it’s the latter.

I’ve picked up a couple of tops and sweaters over the last few weeks that make me glad I had an excuse to shop for myself for once. This tie-back top is a fast favorite, and I’ve linked to a couple of others I’ve recently picked up and fallen in love with, too. They’re all gray because apparently my closet is also devoid of color these days, and I’m really alright with that.

IT’S RAINING LEAVES!

Free People Royale Flat; ASOS black jeans; Miss Demeanor linen top; Zara knit cardigan; Made By Mary necklaces

The first thing Isla said to me on Sunday morning when we stepped outside was, “It’s raining leaves, Mommy!” She was thrilled and it was adorable. The leaves are finally turning and falling and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome autumn and all its fun seasonal festivities. I’m also pretty excited it’s cool enough to wear these leather flats. They’re a recent purchase and a fast favorite; incredibly comfortable and gorgeous. A nice bootie/flat compromise. They’re on the pricey side, but I rarely buy new shoes anymore (what with two growing kids stealing my budget) so I want them to last. These are worth every penny.

Anyway, happy fall!

CUTOUT JUMPSUIT

Madewell Silk Cutout JumpsuitJumpsuits are hard. Hard for anyone but especially for us short people. I shopped around all summer and couldn’t find one that was quite right. Then I saw this beauty at Madewell. I had to have the legs hemmed, which isn’t something I have the budget or patience for typically, but I loved it so much I figured it was worth it. No regrets. It’s silk, which is scary even without two crazy children, so I’ll be wearing it sparingly, dressing it up and down for various occasions. In fact, I bought it for an NYC bachelorette party that ended up getting canceled so I might wear it to the rehearsal dinner instead. It’s breezy and comfortable (the two words I apparently always use to describe my favorite pieces) and versatile enough for most occasions and seasons. Finally, short girl jumpsuit success.

POSTPARTUM STYLE

Post Partum StyleI forgot how much I love normal clothes! I’m still mostly wearing maternity jeans, except these because they’re stretchy and forgiving, but it feels good to be back in tops that button and actually cover my stomach! It’s been so long it almost feels like I have a whole new wardrobe. Bonus. I bought this sweatshirt while I was pregnant knowing it wouldn’t fit until after Theo was born and now I’m living in it. The slit on the one side makes it fun but also functional for nursing, and it’s incredibly comfortable. All-in-all, I’m just thrilled to be dressed.

We celebrated Theo’s first Thanksgiving down the shore with my family last week and experienced our first overnight trip with two kids. I love my family and you know how much we love the beach house, but sharing a room with two kids was … interesting, to put it mildly. Theo’s up every three to four hours to nurse and Isla’s not used to having us in the room with her so she was up at the very first sign of daylight wanting out of the pack ‘n’ play so she could lay in bed with us with her feet in our faces. Needless to say, not much sleep was enjoyed by any of us and we are thrilled to be home in our own beds and rooms. Co-sleeping is officially not going to work out for the Page family.

Before I go, lets talk about these necklaces. The initial charm was a gift from my college roommate after Isla was born (it has the letter “I” on it). You’ve seen it dozens of times on here because I’m in love with it and never, ever take it off. Naturally, I needed one for Theo, too, so I got a bar necklace (it says “THEO” in tiny letters) in hopes that I could layer the two. I mean, I can’t be expected to choose which one to wear on a daily basis, right? They’re made by two different small shops (James Michelle Jewelry and Made By Mary, respectively) and both are absolutely gorgeous. If you’re still Christmas shopping, these make great gifts for moms everywhere!

I’M STILL PREGNANT! | 41 WEEKS

Maternity Style: 41 WeeksGuess what? I’M STILL PREGNANT! At least while I’m typing this on Sunday, which marks 41 weeks! You’re wondering why I got dressed aren’t you? I knew it. It’s a fair question. I need some reason to get out of bed, don’t I? Besides my loving husband, beautiful daughter and all that Halloween candy she collected with my name on it, of course. Showers are my savior guys. And real clothes. Just let me have this, okay?

Now look, I’m aware I’m not the first person to go over my due date. I know plenty of people who went 10 days or even two weeks past, but since I’m going for a VBAC, my options are a little more limited. This simply means we’re really hoping baby boy will move things along all on his own before my scheduled C-section. Here’s hoping!

On the bright side, look at this sweet girl of mine? Besides the fact that she’s been such a brutal monster lately that I’m wondering if she’s scared her brother into never wanting to come out, she’s the most amazing little creature. That toothy smile makes every ache, tear-inducing pain and frustration melt away. Thank you sweet Bee for being mine.
