Velvet Wrap Dress + 10 Questions

A wrap dress you can wear for fall and winter - M Loves M @marmar

I couldn’t help bringing this velvet dress out over the weekend. Velvet is one of my favorite materials – so soft and gives a hint of luxury. This would be a gorgeous dress to wear to a fall/winter wedding, or really any event. While it has a fancy look to it, don’t be fooled, this dress is incredibly comfortable. I hate those dresses that you feel awkward in all night, like you’re wearing a costume. The ones that make you feel slightly uncomfortable and not like yourself. This dress is not any of those things. If anything, I felt like it was a dress you’d wear home from an event and want to go to sleep in. That’s how comfortable it is. It’s a pretty simple silhouette yet the fluttery sleeves add something extra special. You can see them in action here! Sharing some other velvet dress picks below, along with a round of 10 questions!

Augustine’s Nighttime Routine at 1 Year

augustine's nighttime routine at 1 year old- M Loves M @marmar

Some of you might know that Augustine hasn’t been the best sleeper. There was a period for several months where we were in his room off and on for 3-4 hours before he would finally fall asleep for a solid chunk of time. During one of those crazed nights, where I felt at wit’s end, I did some Google searching {good ol’ Google always coming through!}. One of the things that mama after mama encouraged was a consistent bedtime routine. At the time we didn’t really have a routine so it was like a big lightbulb went off in my head, “ooooh. That makes sense.” We gave it a try and that is what I credit Augustine’s new and improved sleep to. He’s still up once in the middle of the night, but the going down process is a lot easier. Today I’m breaking down Augustine’s bedtime routine, as it’s changed for us now at the 1 year mark.

A Healthy Mushroom Grain Bowl

a healthy mushroom grain bowl - M Loves M @marmar

Today I am sharing with you one of my absolute favorite grain bowl recipes. This has been a go-to of mine for a while now because it’s healthy, easy and so delicious! I love to make this recipe for a lunch at home or a quick and easy dinner. Matthew likes it too because even though it’s meat-free, it’s hearty with the egg and cheese. You could omit those two items, though, and make it vegan, if you wish! I hope you make my Healthy Mushroom Grain Bowl and enjoy it too!
