Wearing all white is one of my go-to favorite looks this time of year. What is it about summer whites that makes you feel so carefree? One thing I’ve tried to do more of this pregnancy, is finding everyday brands that work for me throughout these nine months that I’ll be able to wear after the baby arrives.
One brand that I’ve been gravitating towards a lot this pregnancy is Madewell. Their silhouettes, loose shaped tops and fabrics are perfect for a baby bump. For a pregnant mama, it’s definitely nice have these brands to turn to.
Now that I’m in the home stretch with only five weeks remaining, it’s a comfort to know I have clothes I feel good in.

Thank you Madewell for providing the clothes to make this post possible.
Can you believe it’s already May? I’m not quite sure April even happened. Time seems to be speeding by a little too fast in my opinion. So much so, that in just six or so weeks baby girl will arrive. This month is all about enjoying these last weeks as a family of three. I’m cherishing every moment with Jackson before he has a sibling. Everything from trips to the park, baking cookies and drawing for hours on end – each moment is priceless.
Luckily, San Francisco has turned a corner ditching the rainy days we had all winter and early spring. The days have been filled with sunshine. I couldn’t be happier to see blue skies. I’ll be embracing this weather by bringing out all my summer whites a little early. A few pieces I want to add to my wardrobe for the summer – the Cuyana summer hat, Rachel Comey white jeans, and a pair of Rag & Bone Espadrille Wedges.
I know as I grow closer to my due date I’ll have to enjoy some quiet moments resting – this is something I’m not very good at doing. Since I know I only have so little time to get work done and get the house in order, I’ve been on the go. This month, I’m going to keep reminding myself that it’s okay to take some time to just relax without feeling guilty.
Living in the city has its perks – one of them being that everything is right at our fingertips. When sourcing for clients, I try to shop as locally as possible. I love supporting small businesses and what they bring to San Francisco. As a designer, I’m constantly on the go in my daily routine and no day is the same. I find myself venturing out to source for clients around town on most weekdays – picking up props, selecting flowers, or finding the perfect furniture. It’s essential to have Uber at my fingertips to make my everyday routine easy and hassle free. I’ve been asked quite a bit lately what some of my favorite spots are around the city, so I’m taking you on a little ride through my day sourcing for a client.
First stop, picking up flowers. There are times when I can’t make it to the flower market in the morning, so I go to my neighborhood flower shop that is always bursting at the seams with stunning blooms. They do an incredible job at Bloomers. Something that I love about this flower shop, is that they also have an amazing selection of baskets, vases and planets that I can source for clients.
Next, I headed to Hayes Valley to a hidden gem – Tazi Designs. Located on Linden, this store is filled to the brim with stunning merchandise from Morocco. It’s a store you could easily miss when walking around Hayes Valley, but it’s not to be missed.
Located right next door to Tazi Designs is Blue Bottle. Who doesn’t need a little pick me up to help get them through a day of sourcing around town? This is especially true on a warm day. It’s always important to take a break and figure out where to head next.
Last stop of the day is the brand new Cisco Home on Sacramento Street. We use Cisco all the time for projects and now that it is located just a few blocks from our office, it makes it even more convenient to go check out the pieces and fabrics in person.
Since each day I have a different schedule each day and I’m heading out to source all around the city, it makes it vital to have all of my go-to shops at my fingertips. With Uber, I’m able to save all of these spots in my saved places. Instead of having to go look up their address each time I set out for my day, they are right there for me to use when calling my next ride.
I’m thankful that I can enjoy myself while sourcing thanks to Uber and not have to worry about looking for parking in each location – something every San Franciscan is challenged with!

It’s hard to believe that summer is right around the corner. Where did time go? We’ve had a small dose of summer-like weather here in San Francisco and my mind is having major wanderlust. I’ve been dreaming of all the warm weather spots I’d like to travel to – Todos Santos, Havana, and Kauai. Let’s just say, this sunshine has me adding a little more color into our family’s wardrobe – I know, I know – it’s a little shocking.
When warm weather hits, all I can think about wearing are soft flowy dresses that are light and airy, beautiful linen, and having that go-to pair of sandals that work with just about anything. This is one thing I love about Old Navy – they constantly have these pieces available for everyone in the family.
Since I’m only seven weeks away from having baby girl, it’s quite essential to have a few pieces on rotation that I can count on each morning. My must have pieces this month are this white dress, tees, and Old Navy jeans. They are a MUST people! I live in them and swear by them. If you are pregnant run, don’t walk to get yourself a pair in several washes.
What’s the most important about the change of weather and season, is that our family gets outside to enjoy the simple joys of impromptu trips to the beach or park – and most importantly – have fun with each other. So, embrace this time of year and go have some silly moments with your loved ones!
