The past few weeks it has been well into the 90’s here in South Carolina. With such heat, it’s hard to want to do anything that doesn’t involve a large body of water. We’ve been taking every chance we get to lounge by the pool and cool off.
I think it’s pretty clear I love floral patterns, so this little kimono is always my go-to pool cover-up. I paired it with a high-waisted two piece, which is especially post baby body friendly ;). I’ll probably be living in it this summer. Stay cool!

This father’s day happens to be a very special one, as it is Scofield’s first official father’s day! Gift giving is one of my love languages, so I get especially excited when I have an excuse to buy a gift for my man. He, on the other hand, is more of a ‘words of affirmation’ kinda guy. So, honestly, if he could choose between a great gift and a meaningful, lengthy conversation, he’d choose the latter. Just one of the many, many ways we are very different. But, I love to go a little crazy and love him via gifts, anyway ;). If you’re stumped on what to get the dads in your life this year, hope you find this little father’s day gift guide helpful.
And speaking of love languages, what’s yours? Have you found that you and your spouse’s are different?
Since having Piper, one of our favorite things to do as a family is to strap her in the stroller and explore downtown. There are so many fun restaurants, coffee shops, and parks to visit (see some of my favorite spots here). Piper absolutely loves it too! It’s so fun to watch her observe and take in the world around her. We could push her for hours, and she’d be happy as a clam. When we first got our bugaboo stroller we were so excited to let her try it out that we put her in the stroller and pushed her around the house. She was so giggly and happy, we probably pushed her back and forth and made funny faces at her for close to hour. The silly things you do to make your baby laugh ;). The other weekend, on an especially beautiful day, we did a little exploring downtown. The weather called for rain, but the day ended up being gorgeous and sunny so we took full advantage. We snapped a few pictures and shared them below!^ Everything in her mouth..all the time…^ I spy little baby hands and baby feet ;)^ These two together, I can’t even handle it. They are my redheaded people, and I love it so much.^ I mean, who wears sunglasses when you can use them as a teething toy?? ;) Dress: Sonnet James | Shoes: Converse | Hat: ASOS | Piper’s Bow: the Splendid Bow Shop | Piper’s Sunglasses: Janie and Jack |Piper’s Romper: Baby Gap| Stroller: Bugaboo, c/o
I cannot say enough about how wonderful this stroller is. It is perfect for any mamas or families that are always on the go or that travel often. It is super light and so easy to fold up and put in the car. Since I already have my hands plenty full when I’m trying to grocery shop and run errands with a baby, it’s nice to have a stroller that doesn’t add to the stress. Part of this is because it is not bulky at all. It’s the perfect size, which I appreciate when we’re out and about, and I’m sure others do too ;). When we’re walking down the grocery aisles or making a pit stop at a coffee shop, I don’t feel like I take up too much space and bump into everyone.
As a new mama, I have been
overly especially concerned with the safety of any and every product we use for Piper. I would do anything to make sure my girl is safe, and I love that Bugaboo has done the same. All the safety tests they run and that the strollers go through exceed the safety standards globally. How assuring to know that!
One last thing I can’t forget to mention is that I have been so so impressed at how smooth our stroller rides. When I push it, it feels like we’re gliding. I know the smooth ride is comfortable for Piper because, if you can’t tell, I’m pretty sure she loves it ;). If I could pick any stroller, the Bugaboo Cameleon3 is by far the one I would choose time and time again. I seriously cannot say enough about it (clearly)! If you haven’t heard of Bugaboo, be sure to check them out! This stroller is a mama’s dream!
Can’t wait for a summer full of lots more strolling downtown!
thank you so much to bugaboo to partnering with me for this post

Vann and Liv is the cutest little children’s boutique there ever was. Not only are the clothes and accessories unbelievably adorable, but I cannot get over the beautiful decor. Major design crush over here. From the little dots on the ground to the hanging ice cream cones, it’s just so precious I had to share it on the blog.
We have been borrowing the rocking chair in Piper’s nursery from a friend, and are about to invest in our own. I am torn between dark gray or bright blue. After visiting Vann and Liv, I might have to go with the bright blue! We’ll see if I can convince Scofield ;)
