Fall Favorites: It's Cold Around Here!

The cold weather has been quite the change for us. Let's just say, we're all a bunch of babies! But it sure is fun to add some warmer clothing items to our closets. 
I'm obsessed with this shirtdress. I love the layered collar look and it's dressy yet comfy. And best of all, it's not maternity. It has plenty of room for the baby bump and I can still wear it long after said bump is swaddled in my arms. Knee boots are all the rage right now. I'm excited to wear mine to church to keep my legs warm when I have to wear dresses and skirts. 
Quick update on the baby bump... I'm 31 weeks along now. It's sure to go by fast with the holidays up ahead! 

A lot of you are going to be in shopping mode this weekend and probably from here on out for Christmas. I thought I'd share some of my favorites for the whole family.

Hooray Littles: Car Seat Swaddles

Hooray Littles is a little start up I've been wanting to do for a while. Almost 3 years to be exact! 
When my little son Brandon was born he loved being swaddled. In fact, he had a really hard time when he wasn't swaddled; like when he was in his carseat or stroller. I mean, I couldn't drive to the grocery store without him screaming and crying, much less travel to visit family. 
So I made him a little swaddle that could be used in his carseat and in his stroller. It also worked in his bouncer and his baby swing. This was life changing for us! 
Everywhere I went people would ask me where I got this special swaddle. This is when I realized that other people might need this in their lives. It took me a while to get my act together, but I'm so excited to finally be launching my swaddle blankets! 
The swaddles are made with a soft and airy 100% Cotton gauze with a light stretch.
 These swaddles function as a normal swaddle as well. Awesome right?!!!

What's Your Favorite Color?

What's your favorite color? This is a question I not only ask others when I am getting to know someone, but I ask myself all the time. I feel like my favorite color changes so often, with every season, my mood, my taste. I am constantly growing and changing, and I think my favorite color does too. I can pretty much think of different colors for different stages of my life. 
I also love to ask my kids what color they like best and always take notice of what colors they gravitate toward. I think you can tell a lot about someone by the colors they like. 
There is this awesomely colorful wall in San Diego that I think is so fun! Especially because of the artistic concept behind it. The artist, Roy McMakin, basically asked people at random to choose their favorite color. He then placed a tile of that color up on the wall in the order received.
{Dress: From Asos and is Maternity. Its super comfy and I love it! Hat: Nordstrom. Shoes: Nordstrom}
879 people and their favorite colors are represented on this wall. It really is such a simple concept, but brilliant as well! It reminds me of a quote from the show Mad Men where Don Draper says 
"Make it simple, but significant." 
We all had fun pointing out our favorite colors and trying to reach them. Brandon loves blue and green, Sophie loves all of the pinks, and I love the light purple tiles.
If you are ever in La Jolla, CA. be sure to check out this piece of art known as "Favorite Colors". For a list of other fun things to do is San Diego check out this blog post. 
I found this personality color chart that Paper Source comes out with every year. I would say that the color that describes me best is Coral. I do love that color too. Although, I tend to gravitate a lot towards Navy blue lately. My house has a lot of Peacock hues. And I can never resist a light purple or bright pink. Looking at the color chart I can't pick just one... I love them all too much! Maybe I have a multiple personality disorder.

What's your favorite color? Does the description on this chart match? Leave a comment, I would love to know!
