    What’s Lovely This Week

    week in Instagrams | Oh Lovely Day

    We had another lovely and super busy week around here! Some highlights from my instagram feed involved shooting 5 DIY projects that will be coming your way over the coming weeks, prepping to co-host two baby showers this month, eating cookies, playing with my mini-me, and getting a little quality time with my honey. We saw The Spectacular Now (from the writers of 500 Days of Summer) and it’s a really sweet and real film that I highly recommend.

    the lovely shop

    did you know we have made some of our posts shopable? and we’ve also curated some of our favorite things and stuff from my wish list all in one place for your shopping pleasure. You can find the lovely shop here, and a collection of my favorite baby-related essentials on amazon here.

    In case you missed any of our posts this week:

    a country-chic backyard wedding (a must see for the wildflower bouquet and top-knotted bridesmaids)

    my biggest wedding-related regret is not hiring a wedding filmmaker. tips to find the right one for you.

    the loveliest engagement session I’ve ever seen (with the best floral crown ever)

    a romantic trip to NYC

    essentials and recommendations for the newborn baby phase

    Some of my favorite finds on the web:

    one of the prettiest & most festive handmade weddings I’ve seen in a while

    this dresser…in my house…now, please. so chic. And DIY!

    personalized baby leggings. as if my baby fever wasn’t bad enough already.

    a little obsessed with this gold + black dress 

    My favorite pins:

    love this for announcing a new baby’s name

    a gorgeous visual for how to properly set a place setting

    my new favorite dessert table sign

    I need this patio, with this sign to pump me up for swimsuit-wearing

    my obsession with thick hair and fishtail braids continues

    fabulous shoe with a big ol’ bow (brides and bridesmaids – think of the photos!)

    I’ve been getting inspired to get creative with Charlie’s school lunches by these bento boxes

    a fantastic (mr. fox) ring shot

    and again, as if my baby fever wasn’t bad enough… (this happened)

    be sure to follow along on pinterest for lots more lovely. and thanks to the 15k+ of you that already do – hitting 15k last week was very exciting for me!

    •  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
       Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds  And just like that, Calvin is more little boy than baby  #calvins3rdyear #boyhood
