This New Mom Kit from Third Love would be an incredible gift!!! 

#LTKbump #LTKfamily #LTKbaby
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. 💕

Must-buy alert for pregnant or nursing mamas!

I don’t know what took me so long, but I finally snagged a few pieces from Kindred Bravely. Lesson learned - their line is amazing!! The fabrics used in their loungewear and everyday items are incredibly soft and wash beautifully (pee, poop and spit come right out on delicate 🙃 ). I’ve been reaching for this dress on repeat. Although I got it on sale originally, I’d happily pay full price. 

I also LOVE their pumping and nursing bra. Just be sure to size up, if you’re on the fence. Can’t wait to share more of my faves in the coming weeks 🤍

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!

Happy 4th, friends! 🇺🇸 We got out for a little neighborhood walk today, just before the clouds rolled in. Sophia is loving this little toy bar and it’s so easy to attach to different items. I highly recommend registering for it, if you’re expecting, or picking one up ASAP, if you have littles…$25 & on Amazon prime.

This outfit has basically become my “mommy uniform” but it’s easy to recreate, comfortable and nursing-friendly. I recently got a large order in from Kindred Bravely, and I’m so impressed with their clothing. I’ll share a try-on soon. This tee is a must.

Outfit, stroller and accessories all linked! 💙🤍❤️

This #ThrowbackThursday is so worth the repost because I’m sharing some of my most popular #AmazonPrime buys! The packing cubes and slippers pictured were favorites of you ladies this past Spring, so I wanted to link them again. I also just scooped up this highly-rated mini vacuum today (swipe to see)! It’s currently on a #lightningdeal ⚡️for $20 off and comes in black or white. I got the white, since I plan to use it in the kitchen.

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.

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!

#FlashbackFriday with this easy, transitional work look!

All outfit details are linked but I have to highlight the “Winnie” pant because I wore them weekly when I was working in-office. They come in petite and regular length, and are always on sale! Currently around $35 and available in black and navy.

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. 

#LTKbacktoschool #LTKSeasonal #LTKstyletip
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.

Hello, ladies! It’s been a hot minute. How are you all doing? I’m throwing it way, way back with this pic but I still love this dress. Lilly Pulitzer dresses and rompers have become a summer wardrobe staple for me. I’ve linked up some that I’m currently coveting (holding off until I figure out this postpartum sizing 🙃) and the latest version of my sandals.

Also, with this heatwave in the northeast, drop your go-to iced coffee below! These days I’m making mine at home but I always love a vanilla latte with almond milk.

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 $$$.

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 !!

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 ☕️

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.  

P.S. if you’re a soon-to-be mom or are on the hunt for an amazing car seat, both of ours are on deep discount!!!! Highly recommend picking one or both up now, if you can.

Woo hoo - We made it through the week! 🙌🏼

Let’s just say like everything else in my life at the moment, I’m a day late and a dollar short. I had all intentions of getting this post up yesterday, but that’s the newborn stage for you.  It’s like a hamster wheel of happiness and exhaustion. My ability to give myself

Little throwback because I missed my Friday Finds, but I promise my “Father’s Day Weekend Finds” (see what I did there 😉) were worth the wait! If you’ve been on the fence about the Barefoot Dreams cardigan or blanket, now is the time to shop. There’s a ton of fashion and home options on super deep discount. Free shipping on any orders over $89. If you’ve followed for even just the last month, you know how much I adore my Barefoot Dreams items. I promise their products are worth the hype!!
