.Navy Dots.

I'm excited to partner with Pink Blush this week and bring you three adorable and affordable looks. Pink Blush Maternity was my go to shop while pregnant. They basically dressed me and kept me looking stylish those 9 months. Truthfully, I fell in love with some of their pieces, like this cute maxi & all their jeans, I was a little sad to pack them away. Thankfully, the also have a line that is for us non-pregnant ladies!! Just like their maternity line, I instantly became obsessed with all their cute pieces. Now on to my first look...

Summer nights in Southern California are for easy, breezy, and chic outfits. This tank totally falls in all those categories. If you've been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know I am obsessed with polka dots. I mean, more than half my closet is covered in dots, big and small. Now Kennedy's closet is starting to quickly be taken over by polka dots, #sorrynotsorry. I just can't help it! Naturally while browsing Pink Blush's website I was drawn immediately to this top and had to add it to my collection. I love the way it has the pretty lace detail at the bottom. The loose feel of this top pairs perfectly with skinny jeans or even distressed boyfriend jeans. If you're looking for a casual look for the 4th this top would be perfect!! Just add a vibrant red lip and you would be set! As far as sizing, I am usually between a small and medium, but went with a small on this top. I am so glad I did! I could have even got away with a XS if they offered it. I have a feeling this top with be getting a lot of wear this summer.

Side note, this top would be great for all you breast feeding mamas out there! You wouldn't even need a cover when in public. Got to love it!

.Maternity Photos.

In honor of today being mine and Tyler's 4 year anniversary I thought I would share some of our maternity photos. We took these when I was 34 weeks pregnant. It was such a fun day for us shooting with Jessie Morgan all over San Diego. Now that Kennedy's here I am so glad we took these. You forget just how big your bump was :)

In the weeks leading up to our shoot I was all over Pinterest looking for ideas. I fell in love with the idea of wearing a flower crown. After doing a lot of research I came across the Little Fox Flower Shop here in San Diego. Kelly, the owner, did not disappoint and made the cutest crown! It totally made my outfit. I highly recommend checking out her shop if you're in the San Diego area!

.Floral Midi.

Dress, H&M {maxi version} // Necklace, J.Crew {loving this one} // Bracelets, ℅ INPINK Style // Sunnies, Karen Walker // Kennedy: Romper, Old Navy {love this one & this dress}// Bow, Target 

Over the weekend we took advantage of this gorgeous weather we have been having and took a trip to the lake. Kennedy LOVES being outside. She loves the sunshine and just looks around. She's becoming very alert of everything around her. It's the cutest!

This was my first time being in front of the camera since being pregnant and it was sort of surreal. I loved my bump and learning how to style it. I feel like I have to teach myself how to style normal clothes again lol. Thankfully, I fit in most of my old clothes and pulled them out of storage. I forgot about a lot of them so it's like having a new wardrobe again! I have found myself wanting to shop and add in a couple new pieces. Kennedy and I went to H&M last week and both got new dresses. I instantly fell in love with this dress. I was really drawn to the print. I loved the colors because they were a little out of my comfort zone and have a vintage vibe. This print also comes in a gorgeous maxi! It's also a super flattering cut for my post pregnancy body. You can't beat the price either, it was only $17!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday Eve!

XOXO, Kayla

.Kennedy Grace Smith.

Kennedy Grace Smith 
April 30, 2105
7 pounds 9 ounces

I am so excited to formally introduce all of you to the angel in our life, Kennedy Grace Smith! She surprised us a couple of days before her due date on April 30th at 9:00pm. We have spent the last month kissing, cuddling, and just obsessing over her. We didn't know a love like this existed. She's our little slice of heaven :)

 I plan on sharing my birth story with you guys in the future. I just have to figure out how to put it all together without writing a novel, lol. In the meantime I am going to be back to blogging. I'm trying to get the hang of getting back on a normal schedule while operating on little to no sleep. It's beyond worth it though! I have missed all of you. You can always follow along with all our daily adventures on Instagram and Snapchat {kotineru for both}.

XOXO, Kayla
