mama musing // Fall must-haves

Deep into the 10×10 Fall challenge and while I have more to come on that, it’s been something I have been wanting to try. I am guilty of being a total consumer, and really trying to be a fiscally responsible adult (yuck) has made me look at making conscious choices about what purchases I make.

Combined with trying to plan and make smarter purchases, I am also trying to be smarter about supporting smaller businesses, ethically sound companies that reflect my values.

That being said, here is my limited Fall/Winter must-haves…which I will probably only end up having a few of these pieces, but that’s part of the fun!

This week…it was one of those that by 10am Monday I couldn’t wait for it to be over. I was looking forward to a day full of relaxation but of course the car needed service, but then a shiny light at the end of a dark week. The repairs were $35, might be the smallest bill I have ever paid  for my car. 

We celebrated by getting fresh flowers, picked up a few pretty things from Madewell, and then while the baby napped I played with my new makeup. This last picture was prior to the car repairs but adorable watching Harper sit and drink “cottee” with Daddy, going “ahhhh” after each sip.

Really I have one week before things should start to calm down (finally) and we can share some fun news!

The weather has finally gotten brisk, and this mama can not stop dreaming of the perfect faux fur coat. My Pinterest has been filling with dreamy outfits, and nothing has been on my mind more than getting that perfect coat. Francoise Hardy, Jane Birkin, or Sienna Miller, they all know how to make this feel effortlessly cool. With slightly rumpled hair, minimal makeup and a sultry stare, I keep feeling inspired to create my own mama friendly spin on this daytime look. Wrapped up and cozy, with a tote bag full of fresh market flowers under my arm I could live every cold, grey day in this scrumptious coat.

This jacket, it’s almost surreal it’s so beautiful!
