Fall Home Decor

We are already nearing the end of October, but I finally have all of our fall decor up around the house! I'm okay with that...I have a tiny person taking up most of my time and the decorations will stay up until Thanksgiving, when we switch to not too shabby, me thinks! 

I wanted to share a few snapshots of what I put out, and I will link to anything I can. Not pictured are a wreath from Smith & Hawken (Target) that isn't available anymore, but is similar to this one, and this doormat (which is pretty much out almost year round).

Cold Weather Clothes for Baby

H&M winter clothes

It has gotten chilly all of a sudden here in central Ohio. I have been looking forward to it for so long (I HATE the summer)...but it was 80 degrees one day, and then frosty the next...and I realized that Marin's wardrobe wasn't prepared for the drop in temps! 

Thankfully, H&M came to the rescue with some adorable cold weather finds that are stylish and affordable. For reference, Marin is currently almost 19 lbs (I know, I have a huge 5 month old)...and I bought sizes 9-12 months in most of these items. That is a bit big for her, as she is currently wearing 6-9 months in this brand, but I want them to last through as many of the winter months as possible.

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday everyone! Although I am annoyed to be getting up at 6 am and heading back to work this week...I'm riding a high from spending such a great weekend with one of my best friends. 

If you follow me on Instagram (@emilykaysteiner), you'll know that one of my closest girlfriends came down to Columbus on Saturday for our annual girl's weekend. We have one every October to celebrate her birthday and we always try to do something new and fun around Ohio. This year, we went to the Renaissance Festival!

Fun in her Baby Bjorn bouncer

Happy Friday friends!

I realized now that Marin is 4 months is about time for another little update. Here are some notes on how she's been doing and growing over the past couple of months.

Boho Baby Clothes

Those that know me, know that I'm a bit of a hippie at heart. My ideal style leans heavily toward simple bohemian, with a mix of classic neutrals. I'd rather go barefoot, and if that's not an option then it's got to be sandals or cork wedges. And there's an obvious lack of bright colors in my wardrobe because, well, I hate them ;)

When I gave birth to my daughter, you can imagine that I just couldn't with most of the baby clothes that are out there. You's bad. Some of the stuff for little girls doesn't even look remotely comfortable, and all of it is covered in cartoon characters, obnoxious phrases, and ruffles. Oh, the pink frilly ruffles.

Just... no.

So, I went on a mission to find something else. Clothing pieces for babies (and toddlers) that were cute, but comfortable. Items that were neutral and classic. And for the love of God, no tiny pictures of cartoon owls or "Mommy's Little Angel". I have to say, Instagram has been a great tool in this search. I've found most of the stores/brands through exploring Instagram posts and stories, but others have come through recommendations or were found on blogs that I follow. 

Anyway, here is the roundup of my favorites so far! I will also be sure to do a separate post on my go to places that are more accessible (brick + mortar) and great for picking up staple pieces like simple onesies and such.
