my favorite blog moments in 2013

What an amazing year 2013 has been. We started off the year by welcoming our daughter Marni into the world. She has truly been a blessing and has brought new meaning to the words “my life is suddenly perfect!” At 4 months old, we took our first family trip to Oahu. Several road trips to LA later, a first Mother’s day as a mom, her first Christmas, a mention in C Social Front and (!) and countless visits to the local park swing, we prepare to celebrate her upcoming  1-year old birthday! Thank you for following along my fashion journey as a first time mama.

Happy New Year! xoxo
