    mother & son maternith photos | Jennifer Roper Photography on Oh Lovely Day

    A few weeks ago I had some photos taken with my boys (at 3 1/2 and 34 weeks pregnant). While I find pregnant women and their bodies to be especially beautiful and inspiring, I never really wanted maternity photos of myself (and didn’t do any during my first pregnancy). But this time around I wanted to document this special time with my first born and before my second was born. Both because it was so hot (July, heat wave, and 34 weeks pregnant) and because I wanted to actually see my body rather than cover it up in a big tent dress, we did some photos in our undies. I never intended to share them here, but Jennifer Roper did such a beautiful job that I thought I would share a few of my favorites.  Read More »

    Coral Chevron Maui Destination Wedding

    Maui Destination Wedding | Aimee McAuley Photography | Oh Lovely Day

    Today’s wedding is like getting two in one. It’s one part classic chic and one part Hawaiian destination wedding. And between the pops of coral accenting the clean grey and white palette and the chevron patterns, the style is fresh and modern. But there’s an old Hawaiian and rustic chic feel as well. Not to mention the stunning venue and the bride’s Vera Wang gown… So much to be inspired by in this beauty!

    Nursery Peek + Lulu & Georgia Giveaway

    Nursery Peek and a Lulu & Georgia Giveaway | Oh Lovely Day

    Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a lovely summer weekend. I finished baby #2′s nursery over the weekend and am so in love with the finished room that I keep finding myself in there, just hanging out. So I thought I’d share a little peek (an official room tour post with source links for everything you see will come after baby is here) and celebrate with a giveaway from Lulu & Georgia, one of my favorite home decor brands and the maker of our nursery rug.

    Nursery Peek and a Lulu & Georgia Giveaway | Oh Lovely Day

    The photos (and my photography) don’t do this rug justice – it has such vibrant ombré shades of blue and it is so soft and cozy. Charlie likes to lay on it and says he is swimming in the ocean. It really pulls the ‘cali-cool nautical nursery’ together.

    I’ve got so many goodies from Lulu & Georgia on my dream wish list (like this rug for my office). If you do too, today is your lucky day because we’re giving away $100 credit to Lulu & Georgia! Enter below through 8/1/14 and the winner will be announced in the entry box below on 8/2/14, so be sure to check back.

    •  My mom came to town to help for a week (YAY! ) and I got to leave the house alone for the first time in ages today. And I got my hair did. I feel a bit like a normal person again. Thanks to my mom and husby for holding down the fort while I was gone.
       It's like a showdown of breastfeeding pillows over here these days. I was so sore and uncomfortable from breastfeeding the first week that I felt I needed a different pillow. My boppy, while it has the cutest cover made for me by @littleslumber, was the least comfortable. I've been using the My Brest Friend (yes, that's really what it is called) for the last two days and it is a huge improvement! Also pictured is the Dr. Brown's Gia (their bottles are my fave!) but I haven't tried it yet. Which is your favorite bf pillow? And any tips for keeping baby latched to try positions like side bf or laying down? I have a great nurser with a good latch but as soon as I try anything besides cross body while hand expressing he comes off. My back and hands need a little break!
