5 Outfits I’ve Been Wearing Postpartum

Let me paint you a picture of Parker’s first day of preschool this year:  The day is August 28th which means we have a five day old baby.  We’ve also been without power since the day we arrived home from the hospital so we are waking up for the third morning in my sister’s guest house, all living out of hastily packed suitcases.  There is a late start today (meaning school starts at 11a) because of Hurricane Harvey and all of the rain he has brought to the city, so my nephew also needs a ride to his first day of high …

Winter is something that I haven’t experienced a lot of these last 10 years, at least not winter like we have had on and off this last month here in Austin.  The kind that turns the sky a cool stark gray contrast behind wavy oak branches that have lost all of their leaves.  The kind that drop temperatures into the 20s and make you regret the 1/2″ of ankle skin exposed to the crisp air thanks to your cropped jeans. Cooler January days in Los Angeles I’m realizing were much more like fall minus the foliage. A welcome excuse …
