Jesse approves!

Day 1 shoes

My vest is my remix item. I always wear it like this with a black shirt underneath, but it's a vest! Surely I can figure out other ways to wear it!

Day 1 earrings

I have to tell you, I LOVE the Halftee. It makes it really simple to layer, and gives me easy access for nursing. I'm so busty that I usually need a tank to hide the excess cleavage, and the Halftee gives me the coverage without the bunching. It's not very good for those shirts you need the length in, though! (They didn't pay me or anything, I just am a huge fan.)

Day 1 charm

Jon and I bought my pearl "wedding ring" in London on our first anniversary. I'm not really comfortable traveling with my actual ring because it is so priceless to me - I would be devastated if anything happened to it. So, we got this pretty pearl one at Portobello Road (the street where the riches of ages are stowed!). Luckily, it's a little big, so when my hands got swollen during my pregnancy I was still able to wear a ring that was meaningful. Jon doesn't really like it - he thinks it makes him look cheap (silly boy). I LOVE it, though, and get compliments on it all the time. I am excited to go back to my real ring...hopefully soon!

Hey! Mooooom...gross!

This lipstick crushes my soul.

Jesse 04
Nah, just messing with you, Mom!


  1. I love it! Your outfit is SUPER adorable and Jesse's faces during the "photo shoot" are so priceless. Love you guys and I may just join you in this challenge. I might as well have one more, right??

  2. I'm loving the red touches in this outfit. And you're rockin' those jeans! Good for you. =) I'm excited to see what else you come up with the next few weeks.

  3. Oh.My.Goodness. I'm SO happy that we found each other again! Jesse is SO cute, and you're adorable. I can't wait to add you to my google reader.

    Love you!

  4. You look very lovely and Jesse...he looks like a Jona boy!

  5. Love the pop of color with the shoes! (And you can tell your husband that I LOVE your pearl ring!) Your son is incredibly adorable, btw. :) He has such a cute smile!

  6. I love your ring. And that onsie!!!

  7. I too am in love with your pearl ring. Someday I hope to go to Portobello Road myself. I have a fantasy that random streetgoers and merchants will break out into song and dance just for me.
