Happy Friday!

It’s Friday and it’s almost April…what the heck?! I have no idea where March went but I do know I’m pretty excited for this next month. April is my favorite month because everything starts blooming, the weather is usually nice (I say usually because Missouri weather is bipolar) and it’s also our anniversary month.

That said, I’ve been trying to find Shawn a gift to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, but I’ve only been really good at finding stuff I want to buy for myself. Isn’t that how it always works? So here are my top 5 favorite items that are currently hanging out in my virtual shopping carts.

{one} With 2 young kids that hate sleep, my time to actually shower and get ready for the day has dwindled to absolutely no time at all. Luckily, I can get by without washing my hair every day, but come day 4 or 5, it’s looking pretty bad, so I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect hat. One that I can wear with anything, but still look cute-ish (because can you really look cute with 5 day old hair?). I’m currently loving this 1KC “No Name” hat in black. It’s simple, has the vintage look I love and the company’s mission is pretty awesome.

{two} When I was working, I mostly wore pants (and occasionally a skirt or dress) during the spring and summer months. Now that I’m staying at home, neither of those are really suitable for chasing around kiddos all day, so I need to update my wardrobe. Since I’m still adjusting to this lovely postpartum body of mine, I’m not ready to rock shorts just yet, but I know I need something other than my go-to yoga pants. I think I like these straight leg crops from Loft. I don’t have anything like them in my closet currently and they are the Curvy Skinny fit, which are my favorite because they aren’t too tight in my hips or thighs, but still have the skinny jean look, so I know I’ll be comfortable in them.

{three} I love shopping local businesses and right now one of my absolute favorites is Nickel & Suede. I got my first set of earrings for Christmas (thanks Mom!) and they are seriously the best things ever. If you haven’t tried them, you need to! This week they launched the Select Blue leather earrings and I need them in my life. I mean, hello Royals baseball is starting soon and if you know my family, you know the Brack boys live and breathe Royals baseball.

{four} The number one thing I hate most about breastfeeding is constantly having to think about what top I’m going to wear. How easily can I nurse in this? Can I wear a nursing bra or tank under this? How much will show if I’m in public and my baby gets hungry? Ninety percent of the time I just end up in a t-shirt because it’s easy, but it’s not helping me feeling cute and new moms need to feel cute. I stumbled across Latched Mama recently and I’m in love with their clothes. I haven’t tried any of them yet, but I think I’m going to order this lightweight hoodie in grey.

{five} Because what mother doesn’t need this coffee mug? It’s simply perfect.
