One year ago today! We had only shared our pregnancy news with close family and friends at this point, but I was bursting at the seams to tell the world I was going to be a mom. It was something I had always dreamed of, and now, I can honestly say, even on my most exhausting day, that sweet little girl of ours is the light of my life. What I also didn’t fully realize is how much I’d be reaching for my go-to fall staples. I’ve linked all of these before, but I HIGHLY recommended checking out this sweater coat. It’s amazing!!! I find this taupe/cream color to be the most versatile

And these are a few of my favorite things…

Anyone else overwhelmed by all the sales this weekend? I honestly skipped a lot of the fuss but the one thing I ALWAYS purchase on Black Friday/Cyber Monday is my new Erin Condren planner for the upcoming year. I’ve exclusively used a paper planner since high school (drop a 🐨 if you’re a fellow Hilltopper!!!), and I can’t break the habit. For 2022, I purchased the horizontal option with the silver coil. It’s really the only thing that keeps our life and my thoughts in order, especially these days. 

You can get $10 off your first order by clicking the link in my bio and scrolling to “SAVE”.  This exact planner is also linked on my @shop.LTK page or directly here 👉🏼 

P.S. My nail color is also linked and code “Lauren25” gets you 25% off your entire Londontown order (no exclusions)

“People, let me tell you ‘bout my best friend”…well, friends in this case. My two babies! ❤️

I can’t even stand how much I love matching with Sophia. I didn’t want to be “that mom.” It’s just so fun!! 

If you’re looking for a great gift, I highly recommend a pair of baby uggs. It sounds ridiculous because of the cost, I know, but size up and the mom your gifting to will thank you. She wears these almost every time we go out. No more stressing over socks falling off, since these stay on so well and keep Sophia nice and cozy. Be sure to get this particular pair, though. They open generously on the sides and Velcro close, snugly.

Happy #SelfcareSunday, friends! I had my first real outing in almost 18 months yesterday, and it was equally amazing and stressful all at the same time. I really hate being away from my Sophia girl, but she had the best day with her Daddy and Grandpa.

Putting a full face of makeup on was also a bit of a throwback, especially since becoming a mom. Most of you know that I’ve been heavily focused on skincare for awhile now. #colleenrothschild’s line has been on my “to-try” list for a long time, but I never got around to ordering some items to test. Graciously, #ColleenRothschildgiftedme their extreme recovery moisturizer and retinol no. 9 oil. I wasn’t able to use the oil because I’m still breastfeeding; however, the moisturizer is my new go-to for daytime. It was the perfect first step for this wedding-ready look as well! The consistency/texture of this product is probably my favorite aspect. @colleenrothschild has somehow found a way to transform a cloud into a face cream 😍. It’s very, very lightly fragranced, deeply moisturizes and doesn’t cause any caking or flaking when used under primer or foundation. I’m so impressed! 

I personally think Colleen’s line would be best for ladies ages 25+ based on the active ingredients used. I honestly can’t wait to try more products!! You can shop the moisturizer, oil and my wishlist items via link in bio or HERE 👉🏼. DON’T FORGET to use my promo code: THESASSYSUBURBS20

All smiles but the last few days have been crazy with a capital “C”…like you have no idea, but my Christmas picture outfit is on sale! Only a few sizes left in the skirt. I’m also not one for turtlenecks, but this one is thin enough to layer, flattering and easy-to-wear.

Daylight savings has me wishing I was drinking this toasted white chocolate mocha (with almond milk ☺️)! Anyone else’s child/children up at the ass crack of dawn because of the time change? Needless to say, we’re struggling…hence the late post. 

We haven’t decked the halls just yet but so many of you requested Christmas photo outfit inspiration, so I wanted to get this up ASAP. Sophia will get to meet Santa and his reindeer this coming week. It’s a real reindeer, by the way, and I’m really excited (in case you couldn’t tell 😂). This is what we’ll be wearing for our outdoor session! Almost every item is currently on sale.

✨Vulnerable Post Alert✨

To me, wife and mother will always be my greatest titles. I learned from the best! My body grew this perfect little angel, and I will always thank God for that. After 5 months of putting myself last on the list, however, I decided to start consistently working out again. In 21 days, I’m already feeling better in my skin. Candidly, I completely slacked on nutrition side, so I’m hoping to improve there, but it’s not about the number of the scale for me. It’s about learning how to fit my health into this new routine…because, as my husband says, if I go down, the whole ship will go with me! Any other moms relate?

On November 8th I’m participating in another 21 day challenge. Workouts are generally only 30 minutes 4-6 days per week. I did yoga last round to ease my way back in, so I’m planning on doing barre this time. If you want to join me, feel free to leave a ❤️ below or shoot me a DM. We’re doing a “fitness and gift guide” theme. Just in time for holiday shopping!

In typical fashion, you can find the latest version of this cozy, chenille sweater linked. It was perfect on this 50-something degree day! 🍂
I’ve got to know - would you prefer a grand foyer or a large front porch!? Ideally, I’d want both because I’m a “more is more” kind of girl 💁🏻‍♀️, but if you had to choose, which would it be??

I also recognize that there’s been lots of holiday content floating around social. I’m honestly not quite there yet. Talk to me after Nov. 1st. I’ve linked a bunch of affordable fall wreaths and my favorite door mat in the meantime  All from Target. 🎯

Until then, you’ll find me in some variation of this exact look, stocking up on my all-time favorite t-shirts. 🤷🏻‍♀️ You can snag 2 for $30 right now!! Such a great buy for such a versatile, flattering basic.

Here’s a fun fact: I hate vegetables! 🤢 It’s been a struggle for me since I was little, but now as a nursing mama, I know I need to be better about eating my greens. I wish #8greensgiftedme their tablets sooner because they would’ve been amazing during pregnancy.

I’ve tested many a “green juice” back in the day, and I’ve always gagged at the taste. I love the melon and blood orange flavor @8greens offers. Candidly, I’m afraid to try the regular. What’s great though is that I have 2 other options that give me the same benefit, so I’ll be sticking with those. 

I also wanted to make note of how fizzy the tabs are. Unlike other brands I’ve tried, these dissolve fully, which means no nasty, chalky taste. Just drop in 16oz of water (you can probably do less, but I like it more diluted) and enjoy!! 

The #8Greens line is available at a few retailers. All options linked in bio, on @shop.ltk or directly here 👉🏼

It’s been almost a week since I started working out regularly again. I was so ready to get my body, mind and overall health back on track that I joined as a newbie coach under my sweet coach, @ stylemelauren. I’ve eased my way back in with a 21  challenge, and have found yoga to be the best option for me right now. My core strength feels non- existent and my knees feel like jello. It took 9 months to grow my sweet Sophia, so I try to remind myself that this will take time. To motivate me more, I tried another align legging,  dupe from Amazon. This one is pretty good! I should also share that I created a little accountability group and would love to have you join. No specific plan is necessary, but if you’d like to join me in working out from home (think Netflix for exercise), DM me and I’ll send you the details. I’ve done it for years and in only 30 minutes a day, I’ve always seen results…even when I’m not following the nutrition plan strictly. 

All outfit details are linked and most are on prime!!

My favorite pumpkin in the patch! 🧡🧡🧡

Broke out all my staples this weekend - lululemon aligns, classic denim jacket and Keds slip-on sneakers. We spent some time at the farmer’s market after our flu shots on Saturday (can you say adulting 😂🤦🏻‍♀️), and Sophia absolutely loved it. These poor pandemic babies are always perplexed when they see more than a few people at one time, but the heirloom pumpkins really excited her. 

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, if you’re pregnant or planning on being pregnant, get a pair of these leggings. Don’t try to save and get the Amazon dupes. Invest in one pair and I promise, you will thank me. These miracle leggings took me from pre-baby to postpartum flawlessly. They’re all I reach for these days too. This plum color is gorgeous for fall!

Today’s Friday Find is courtesy of my blogger friend Olivia over at @livingstyleinsta. Go give her a follow, if you’re not already!

My favorite fall/winter Barefoot Dreams cardigan is on sale for $70 right now. Available is 6 colors and sizes XS-3X. Yes, I know that seems kind of high for a cardigan. I thought the same thing before I tried the Barefoot Dreams brand. I’m here to tell you that (1) I only buy them on sale, (2) I live in them all season long, both as loungewear and for styled looks and (3) you will become addicted, so I apologize to your wallet in advance. Run, don’t walk to scoop up this deal!!!

Try It Out Tuesday: Vitamin Update 

✨ @maryruthorganics Omega 3 drops: When I was pregnant, getting adequate DHA was top priority for me; however finding one that was plant-based proved challenging. Enter my love affair with Mary Ruth’s products, and I found several options I loved. I’m still on my breastfeeding journey, so DHA continues to be at the forefront of my mind. These drops are great, if you prefer liquid to a solid or gummy. Personally, the taste is not my favorite, so I’ll likely stick to the gummy version. #gifted #maryruthpartner #stackinfluence #ad

✨ @GardenofLife Probiotics: I started supplementing with a probiotic when I was in law school after months of battling back-to-back sinus infections. One of the PAs I saw often recommended adding one to my regime, and I can honestly say that it’s improved my overall health greatly. I personally never struggled with tummy or potty problems but many of the reviews say that it helped with those. My recommendation is to look for one that has at least 30 million CFU (colony forming units) to get the most benefit. 

✨ @pinkstork Post-Natal Vitamin: I’m a sucker for gummy vitamins that are effective but gelatin-free. These are awesome, and definitely meet my postpartum needs. Unlike many other brands, you’re only required to take 2 per day. They don’t bother my stomach and taste delish! 

*DISCLAIMER - I am not a doctor. The foregoing is based solely on my personal experience. Please consult a medical professional if you have any questions.
Happy National Daughter’s Day to our little pumpkin! 🧡🤍💛

Happy #FirstDayOfFall!! I’m still struggling to get my house decorated but couldn’t be more excited for #sweaterweather. If you’ve been following for the last few weeks, I’ve been testing out a new clean polish brand. Although I like it, nothing seems to compare to my OG @londontownusa polish. This perfect autumnal color is called “Lady Luck”. Isn’t it gorgeous? #Londontown was nice enough to give me a promo code for 25% off their site!!! Enter code “LAUREN25” at checkout to save $$$.

Happy Sunday, friends! We ran errands this morning then tried a new park. Talk about #momlife, right? These days I’m reaching for easy, simple makeup products, so when #beautycountergiftedme their #thinkbiggerthinkbetter mascara, I was eager to give it a try. I must say, I’m rather impressed, especially because it’s a clean formula. Those are notorious for lacking certain mascara features we’ve all come to know and love. @beautycounter did an incredible job formulating a volumizing and lengthening product that’s light enough for days like today. It’s worth a try, if you’re in the market for a clean option. My only complaint is the brush. I don’t love the plastic ones, and generally use those in combination with a standard bristle mascara product.

God bless our beautiful Sophia today, tomorrow and always 🤍

I won’t lie…When the sacraments coordinator at our church said they had an opening on September 11th for her baptism, I paused. Although a day of reflection on the tremendous loss we faced as a country, I thought to myself, perhaps all those kind, special souls would look down on our little girl and bless her even more.

NYC will always be home. That’s a plain and simple fact. 9/11 changed the course of so many lives. My heart ached on the 20th anniversary, while celebrating our sweet baby. We are forever grateful that my uncles, father-in-law, extended family and friends came home to us that day. 

My dress was $45 from Amazon! Incredible in-house brand!! Linked in bio or directly here:

Combing #FlashbackFriday and #FridayFinds with today’s post because Lord knows I know look like this at the moment 😂…tomorrow is another story, but right now, no…

When I do a full face, I ALWAYS reach for a Tarte product. Whether it’s a brow gel, eyeshadow palette or lipstick (“pink lemonade” pictured here), they never disappoint. I’m assuming the stores are making way for holiday inventory already because I’ve found some unreal Tarte bundle deals!

Meant to share this post at 9am, but my teething baby had other ideas. Hope you’re all enjoying your Labor Day! There are so many sales happening right now. I honestly haven’t shopped much; however, I did see that our absolute favorite clear mugs from Crate and Barrel are on sale. You can get a set of 8 for $27! We use these daily, and I know you’ll love them too.

Hello, hello! It’s been forever since  shared an in-feed post because life and new motherhood is just a wild ride. How are you doing?!

I promised you all, and myself, that I’d get more home-related posts up, since so many of you voted for more of that type of content. So here’s my confession…these frames were in our basement for almost 2 years and we just hung them up 🙈. Needless to say, if you’re looking for a simple gallery wall, these are perfect. Shop them via link in bio!
