This summer feels like it flew by wayyyy too fast. I’m usually craving the knit sweaters and pumpkin spiced lattés but for the first time, I’m just not ready for Fall. Because of this, I wanted to share a few of my favourites this summer, that will take you right in to the fall months when we’re ready for it.
I can’t say enough good things about Tiffany Maternity and their sister line Alie Street. The clothes fit so well and when these photos above were taken, I was still losing some of my pregnancy weight so the give & take of the material was much needed. The long white dress found here is a maternity/nursing dress and I may have to pack up until spring but I thought I’d share it for some of you who are already planning your next vacation somewhere warm. 😉 The black dress and floral are easy to wear in to fall. I would pair the black dress with a long coat, and the floral I would throw on some ankle boots with a scarf to have around my shoulders.
Highlighters!!! I’m completely obsessed with highlighters, and since I’m not a makeup pro, I reached out to my friend Brittany founder of Esteem Makeup Artistry to ask about using them outside of the summer months and her answer was “All year long!!” Whoohoo! 🙂 Here are some tips and suggestion she has for using highlighters:
“If you tend to lose some colour come winter, go for a less golden one and grab something more pearly. Hit the tops of the cheeks, tip of the nose and cupids bow”
The highlighters that I’ve been using all summer are Prosecco, Pearl, and Radiant Glow Drops from Caryl Baker. The Prosecco is light, the Pearl has a pinkish undertone and the Radiant Glow Drops I’ve been using all over my face as it gives a subtle glow to the skin that I absolutely love.
Smoothie bowls! These are awesome because your kids can see all the yummy ingredients that go in to their smoothies! Pretty basic recipe for the one above, I used cashew milk, lactose free yogurt, and frozen mango and papaya for the base. I then added chia seeds, coconut granola, berries and banana. Side note: I never make this big of a bowl for Ella, just a small bowl of all the good stuff, this one we shared. 🙂
