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
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

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: 

Special thanks to @meghanwernerphotography !!

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. 

Coffee sign and new Keurig linked as well ☕️

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!

It’s been a while but Self-care Sunday is back! This week’s feature is an oldie but a goodie. Recently, Josie Maran gifted me her amazing whipped argan oil face butter. I used this product for years as a night cream, and adored every second of its ultra hydrating, skin-smoothing properties. I ended up also loving the benefits of plant-based retinol, so I switched things up; however, when you’re pregnant or nursing, those products are off limits. Needless to say, I’ve fallen back in love with this cream and have been reaching for it both day and night. Even if you have oilier skin, I’d recommend giving this a try. Keeping skin hydrated is actually a why to combat excess oil production!

You’re not going to want to miss today’s Friday Find!! This super versatile t-shirt dress is on sale for $17! I’ve been wearing it non-stop this summer, and my little “mom outing” this afternoon to get my hair cut was no different. Such an easy look but felt very chic.

All smiles because I FINALLY found a nursing bra that doesn’t look or feel like one!! 🙌🏼 In honor of #NationalBreastfeedingWeek, @thirdlove graciously #gifted me this beauty and I couldn’t be more obsessed! It fits perfectly and brings me back to my pre-baby days, with all the functionality I need now. You can score 20% off your first order with code “Nursing20”, so definitely check them out. I’ll be doing a little shopping too. 💕 #thirdlovepartner #mythirdlove 

In all seriousness though, fed is certainly best. No matter how you choose to feed your baby, you’re an incredible mama. What I will say is no one talks about the challenges of breastfeeding.🤱🏻

It will forever be the best thing I’ve ever done for Sophia, but holy hell, it’s a lot of work. It’s a full time job on top of everything else that comes along with life and motherhood. What’s so crazy? I wouldn’t change it for the world. I thought I’d be done when I hit the 3 month mark…but I’m not. In these times, I love the bond we have because of it and, more importantly, the health benefits. She’s thriving and that’s all we can ask for. 

I’m in no way an expert; however, breastfeeding is trial by fire and I’ve learned a lot along the way. Be sure to check out my current must haves and tag a soon-to-be or currently nursing mama below!! ☺️

Longest Monday I’ve had in a while but how gorgeous was today’s weather? I’m officially 12 weeks postpartum and ready to get moving again! Although I’d like to get back into my barre program, I’m taking things slow and focusing on getting those 10k steps in, so we took a walk during lunch.

Exercise is so much better with cute accessories like my Apple Watch and Tiny Words Projects bracelets. Right? Don’t forget - use the link in my bio or code “AFF1123581321” for 15% off. They’re my new go-to gift item. So, so cute. 💕

Give me all the coffee because I think my poor little baby is teething. 😵‍💫 It’s been a week already, and it’s only Wednesday…but you’re in luck! Today is the first day the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to all!! 

Now, if I’m being completely honest, I was underwhelmed by the inventory and quality of some of the offerings this year. Most of my stuff is going back; however, my experience is your gain, since I’m sharing what’s actually worth your while. Check out the link in my bio and simply click “shop my Instagram”. You can also shop direct on the LTK app.

Everyone may be talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I’ll get to that shortly, but Target has some incredible buys right now!! This dress is so light and pretty for summer. It also has functional buttons for any of my nursing mamas! The empire waist makes it pregnancy-friendly as well.

My sparkly sandals come in nude (featured) and black. Another Target find from years ago that’s so popular they’re stocked annually.
