I’ve got a huge crush on circle bags lately in all their varieties: purse, tote, suitcase, clutch. Love them all. The simple shape reminds me of something from the 70s, but still timeless in classic colors and fabrics. Here are a few favorites…
Up to anything fun this weekend? The end of February feels like spring is around the corner, and it’s hard to believe that with spring comes Dot’s first birthday. Crazy how fast time flies. We’re hosting a little cousin sleepover tonight (right now they’re all downstairs watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), and then tomorrow Jared and I have a dinner and movie date night planned (feels like it’s been forever!).
Also, a bit of an update on the remote editor positions. We were totally blown away by the amount of interest in these positions! I’m trying to brainstorm how we can use all of your incredible points of views and expertise, but for right now we are done hiring. I’m excited to share with you some of the new content in the next few weeks. It’ll be more spontaneous, digestible, useful, and interesting things I know you’ll love (because I do!). There will still be long form articles too of course, but more simple ideas sprinkled here and there that we really want to share with you (like the terrariums, dry shampoo ideas). I really think you’ll like where we’re headed. It’s a direction I’ve been wanting to go for a long time and I’m starting to see it all come to fruition. In the meantime, here are some links to explore, have a great one!:

If you fancy jazzing up your home this spring, get your hands dirty and make a terrarium! Honestly, this year there is no better way to add a bit of color and zest to your flat than with a bunch of blooming cacti, funky succulents, delicate ferns or mosses – all arranged neatly in a fancy goldfish bowl, a ceramic plate or a minimal greenhouse. The best part is, since you create it yourself, it will fit in perfectly with the rest of your home and make you feel like you own an indoor garden or a unique piece of art.

Shoes are speaking my language this spring. From block heels to mules and slides, I can’t get enough. Even more, I love the idea of wearing a bright and colorful shoe for spring. Allllll the yellow and red shoes are saying just what I want to hear – buy me!

When Henry was a baby his pediatrician told me that to encourage verbal skills I needed to be talking to him constantly, and playing a lot of repetitive songs: kid songs. So for a while I became that mom driving around playing Raffi’s Wheels on the Bus on repeat. And it was painful. It felt like one more difficult sacrifice I had to make as a new parent. When I didn’t think I could listen to one more obnoxious kid song, I made it a personal quest to find kid music that I actually enjoyed listening to! Slowly over the course of three kids, I’ve been working on an epic kid song playlist with kid music that I actually really love. Perfect for evening dance parties, long car rides, balloon parties in Dot’s crib, and of course encouraging those verbal skills. Here are my favorites…
Up to anything fun for the long weekend? Jared and Henry have headed to Park City for a cousins ski camp with my parents, and I’m headed to Santa Cruz with my friend Kendra and our little ones. The forecast is rainy, but we’re hoping for a little sun here and there! Hope you’re up to something fun, here are some links to explore:

I’m over-the-moon excited about jumpsuits this spring. Since I’m no longer nursing, and not pregnant, I feel like the sky’s the limit in the jumpsuit department. I love the idea of slipping into something simple and heading out the door, straight to the farmers market, of course! Take a look at some of some of my favorite fashion-forward jumpsuits for spring below!
