Navy Blue and the National Zoo

We shot this look while visiting the National Zoo in Washington D.C.  We had never been before and it is gorgeous! I would highly recommend visiting during the fall when all of the leaves are changing. Another fabulous part about the zoo? Its completely free! I was super envious of the joggers that were lucky enough to run through all the animals and scenery as their workout! 
Isabella was in heaven. She is a total animal lover, and blew kisses to every animal at least a thousand times. She is so cute I just dint know what to do with myself sometimes:)
About our looks.. 
I love navy and have always loved navy. I like to call it my favorite neutral! 
With monochromatic looks being all the rage in neutrals it only seemed fair to do the same!
I bought this fabulous draped sweater at Cotton On last year. It honestly as if you are wearing a blanket, so oversized and cozy! I will link a few below that are similar.
Isabella's look just had me about the happiest person on earth. Along with her happy and smiling attitude being at her very own heaven. 
These adorable equestrian leggings were the perfect matchy macthy look to go with my navy obsession. 
Pair navy blue, a faux fur jacket with military buttons, and these glittery boots and I would say thats Equestrian perfection :)

Loving Pale Pink

I have been swooning over so many pale pink coats this winter! It is common to think you would want to wait until the spring to splurge on your pastel pieces, but not this winter. Pastels are in and I am absolutely loving them! Designers debuted icy blues, pinks and even lavenders for fall collections. There is just something so perfect about the light colors and the chilly weather.
I decided to focus on just one of my favorites for now in this post.  There are so many endless options to style a pink coat. You can use a pink this light almost as a neutral and really it can be paired with just about anything! I love the idea of wearing it with a pair of edgy charcoal moto jeans or dressing it up for a festive party with a sequin cocktail dress! Or just casual for a day out shopping like I did below.
And of course I can not forget to talk about Isabella! I just couldn't handle the cuteness of her in this almost monochromatic look :) She is starting to look so grown up and so full of personality. She had so many compliments on her outfit and always is so sweet to respond with thank you and say things like "oh, my hat?" "oh, it's beautiful?" she is just too cute to handle sometimes.
We were in Georgetown when we shot this look and were doing some shopping and eating. The roads and architecture is just so gorgeous and the leaves are so stunning this time a year! I think its safe to say we enjoyed ourselves!

Tips and Essentials for Traveling with a Toddler

Traveling with a toddler may sound like one of the scariest things you have heard since halloween right?
There are a few big things to worry about like.. are they going to have a tantrum… will they sleep… how many germs are on this plane?! (The germs are always my biggest concern!)
But honestly with a few essentials we made it through our four and a half hour flights like a breeze!

We have been traveling with Isabella since she was 6 weeks old and pretty consistently, so that may make it a tiny bit easier in some ways. But I definitely think that traveling with a baby is soooo much easier than a toddler! For the most part you can count on them sleeping the majority of the flight. They don't have many needs.. (Milk & Paci) and you can pretty much keep them germ free since they are bundled up and not touching and putting there mouths on every thing they see.
Something I never thought I would say is that I now can appreciate a layover! With a walker it is so nice to get them out and have them stretch their legs on flights over 3 hours if you have the time.
With a few trial and errors I have found the items that make all of our trip so much more enjoyable!
Hope this helps you all with you travels and if you have suggestions to add I would love to hear them!

I have started to pack Isabella her own little carry-on. She loves being independent these days and when she sees that we have a bunch of bags to carry you better believe she has to have one of her own!
I fell in love with this cute little personalized back pack from Stuck On You and she has to take it everywhere with her these days! She may not be in school quite yet but she feels so big with her very own "packed pack"

In her backpack I like to have

-Clorox wipes, to wipe everything I think she could possibly touch once with get to our seats
-Lysol Spray, to spray over what I wiped and may have missed! (Call me paranoid!)
-Diapers and Wipes of course
-Children's Hand Sanitizer
-Baby Lotion for that dreaded travel dry skin
-Boogie Wipes!!! Saved our lives! She caught a cold on the way back and these seriously are the only way to go! They wipe totally clean and don't cause chapped noses!
-Tide Pen, because we are all pros at spilling
-Aden and Anais Swaddle, just enough to keep her cozy and light to pack
-Camelback, doesn't leak and her favorite right now
-Crystal light packets, in case we don't have access to juice
-EOS Chapstick, keeps her occupied forever (seriously this girl loves chap stick!)
Last but not least Bianca the Bunny for snuggles :)
