Hawaii here we come! We’re leaving on Sunday and while I’m excited, I’m also a little nervous. Hawaii is one of our happy places, and while Matthew and I are both looking forward to experiencing island life with Augustine, we know it’s going to be a different trip than we’re used to. We won’t be able to do quite as much as if it was just the two of us, but I’m thinking it’s still going to be a lot of fun. I can’t wait to see Augustine talk along the sand and I think he’ll need his own little lei!

Today and tomorrow we are doing tons of packing, for Augustine and for us. I had all these plans to bring bathing suits and cute cover-ups, but I’ll be lucky if I can wear them. The forecast is..just you wait…thunderstorms. The whole week! I’m praying that they’ll be sporadic, and maybe in the middle of the night? Either way, we’ll make the most of it. I might have to bring my rainboots though! And find a pair for Augustine!

I have a few posts planned for next week but I’m really looking forward to taking some time off and just relaxing with my people. 2018 is really a year I want to focus on personal health and wellbeing and sometimes that means knowing when to close the computer and turn off the phone. I’m excited to take lots of photos and share stories when we get back, though. I had lots of great tips on traveling with a baby/toddler so that’s a post I’ll definitely be doing. If any of you have any other tips for me, or recommendations for Kauai, let me know! It will be a memorable first trip, I already know it!

These items above are giving me vacay vibes but they are going to be great for spring too! I’ve been obsessed with these sandals and can’t wait to get a pair. The only question is, which color? These colorful earrings are so cute and would be great with a bright outfit, or something more neutral. I have this bag in another color and I love how useful it is for beach days, or even trips to the farmers market. Plus, when it’s not in use, it looks so cute lying around the house. Have you started shopping for spring yet? Would love to know what you’re looking for!

Have a great weekend and thank you all so so much for reading!

Spring casual and cute outfit- M Loves M @marmar

Anyone else having a weird week? Maybe because it’s been shorter than normal, or because the weather is incredibly chilly in SoCal, or maybe it’s because I’m getting incredibly nervous about our trip on Sunday. Maybe a combo of all these things? And I hate to say it, but I have a sore throat. How terrible to get sick before our trip right? I’m just going to be in denial and push through. I think I’m totally fine!

We’re heading to Hawaii though- first flight and big trip with the little guy. I do not feel prepared at all. Traveling is always really stressful for me, but now I have someone else to think about too. And while I used to be able to fall asleep on planes, now I will have to be trying desperately to keep Augustine happy and entertained. Happy baby = happy flight passengers = happy mama! I’ll need all the prayers and good thoughts that we have a smooth and easy flight and that the time change goes well, too! If you have any travel tips or recommendations I’d love to hear them though. It will be our first time on Kauai too so we’re really excited to explore! We love Maui but we thought it might be fun to visit a different island!

a feminine and pretty dress for spring - M Loves M @marmar

Happy Tuesday friends! What a weekend! It felt like it was so long since we had the President’s Day holiday on Monday. Since it’s been awhile I thought I’d give you a big update below. But first, let’s chat about this dress {also comes in black by the way}! Perfect church, brunch, daytime shower/party option, in my opinion! I love the light blue color, and with the clear heels, I’m feeling like a modern Cinderella. Not complaining, though because I feel like it works. The ruffles on the collar are gorgeous and you can wear this dress off the shoulder if you like too. The material is nice and stretchy and because it has some texture, it doesn’t feel too exposed like some body-con dresses. Plus, the modest length makes it feel more polished and chic. If you’re curious about fit, I think it’s true to size, especially because there’s some stretch. I wouldn’t size up though because then the ruffled sleeves might not stay up. Just something to think about!
