• About Oh Lovely Day

    chandra fredrick oh lovely dayHi, I’m Chandra, the girl behind Oh Lovely Day. I’m the wife to my high school sweetheart and the momma of three boys: Charlie, Calvin & baby Quincy. We live in Los Angeles, where we try to enjoy the sunshine and go on lots of family adventures. Some of my favorite things included coffee in the morning and coca cola in the afternoon, hiking at Griffith Park, lunch with my momma village, my mason jar collection, eating carbs, Ryan Gosling, binge watching shows, bougainvillea, dark chocolate, treasure hunting at the flea, too many things at Trader Joes, solo vacations at Target, family dance parties, and cuddles and kisses from all of my boys.

    I’m the founder and editor of Oh Lovely Day, a blog hoping to help provide a little bit of online support and cheerleading to other moms, some pretty home and wedding design inspiration, a few tips, tricks, and life-saving products I’ve discovered in my wife/mom/blogger journey thus far, stuff I love for babies — basically I’m hoping to share style inspiration and practical advice on everything from weddings, home styling, motherhood, marriage, and everything in between.

    How did Oh Lovely Day begin?  My love for weddings, details, and DIY evolved into a passion while planning my own wedding. Then a full-time lawyer, I found how much I loved having that creative outlet during my wedding planning. Once that was over I had a creative void that needed filling, and I decided to start a blog. Oh Lovely Day was originally wedding-focused, but as my life evolved and changed, OLD changed with me. Now it is a lifestyle blog with a focus on motherhood, home, family, and celebrating love and life’s moments. And now (for now) I work from home on this blog and am a mom. I’m so grateful that, through sponsors, it has helped to supplement income that I lost when I put practicing law on hold so I could stay home with my babies. But most importantly, it has given me not only a creative outlet, but connected me with lots of readers, fellow mommas, and online (and some real life) friends. So thanks for stopping by, for reading or following along on social media, for taking the time to comment here or there, and for being a part of this community I’ve come to love. I hope you enjoy Oh Lovely Day and would love to hear from you if you have any questions or stories of your own to share.

    •  Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )  Talking about embracing our postpartum bodies on the blog today with photos from my shoot with @sollybabywrap when I was 10 days postpartum. Let's start a movement of embracing our real postpartum mom bods - haven't we earned it after pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleep deprivation, nursing, and everything else we put our bodies through? Head to the blog to read my thoughts on the subject - link in profile or ohlovelyday.com. And share your own postpartum photos proudly with #embraceyourmombod #battlefieldmotherhood  @maxwanger #quincyrhys #sollybaby
       We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids  Kind of obsessed with this invitation suite from @minted for a desert wedding. It's the kind of stationery suite that you could design an entire wedding around and it would be  #mintedweddings
