A Date With Elin

February 24, 2017

I love Fridays. But really who doesn’t? Aside from it being the kick off to the weekend (woot woot) it’s also the one weekday that I routinely reserve to spend with Elin entirely and just be a mom. There’s the occasional afternoon or late morning I get with her during the week but without fail Friday is our day. We hang with friends, hit up the library (a new favorite outing), go out to lunch, duck into the zoo or a museum and spoil ourselves with a treat—hot cocoa has been the pick as of late.

So I thought I would share my go-to look for our Friday dates. The number one wardrobe essential I rely on as a mom is a good pair of loafers or slides. Something that you can kick on and off easily. Next a cozy sweater (I go for oversized most times) over a blouse or tee paired with some cropped jeans, I’m currently living in this pair by Mother Denim. Since I’m constantly chasing and picking Elin up I opt for a cross body bag so my hands or completely free—I love this one and its only $35!

On me: Raquel Allegra sweater, Mother Denim jeans, Freda Salvador mules, Cami NYC blouse, Celine bag. On Elin: Levis jean jacket, Bonpoint blouse, Ralph Lauren jeans and converse.
On another note I’m starting a new series called “What’s Elin Wearing.” After so many of you messaged me from instagram asking about different things she’s wearing in posts and videos, I decided to recap once a month some of looks and brands we’re loving. There will be special discounts, perks and sale alerts so definitely tune in! Plus this cute face…More favorites I’m loving for days like this…
