A Boho and Sparkly Friendsgiving for the Girls

Oh, you thought we were done with Thanksgiving posts?!  Boy were you wrong, we’re just starting!  Yesterday’s Friendsgiving was for the adults, today’s is for the little ladies!  I designed and styled this boho sparkly Friendsgiving with the help of a few of my talented friends like Wild Child Party and Blot & Dot.  I had my adorable god daughter Edie as inspiration of course, and let her enjoy with a few buddies!  Keep scrolling to see all of the pretty photos by Meredith of Zoom Theory and see more on 100LayerCakelet today

Let’s start with the invite, because, well, I always do!  I sent Cindy from Blot & Dot my mood board for this shoot and she just nailed it!  I love the copper she used on the invite and how it pairs well with the Erika tabletop collection from Harlow & Grey.  And how cute is little Parker showing it off?!

Let’s start with that balloon installation… I know, I know, it’s kind of becoming a thing with us, but I just can’t resist!  Wild Child Party is just so fun to work with and their balloon installations just make a party!  And when you mix in pampas grass, one of my absolute favorites, it takes it next level!

When I saw this collection from Harlow & Grey, I knew I wanted to make something pretty with it.  A girly friends giving was just the fit.  Here Come the Blooms played off of the pinks and the copper with the florals and they complimented the setting perfectly!  Blot & Dot did the abstract shaped place cards, and we even added more macrame with mini pieces made by Robyn Parker.

Ahhhhh, that pampas!

And the Fall leaves!!!  I love this time of year!

Now, on to the cutest little girlies!!!  These girls are decked out in cute outfits from Sweet Threads, mainly Paush Mini – an in house brand that we can’t get enough of!  Hey Girl!  I’m Thankful!  And like most best girlfriends, we’re all thankful for cute clothes, duh!  Check out all of their cute outfits, seriously I die and want to be them…

You can find Mikaela’s pretty dress here

Freyja’s adorable jumpsuit here…  Which may be my favorite!

Little Parker’s cute romper here

This little jumpsuit is by Harlow & Jade, comes in mommy sizes too… I may have to invest!! But I think it’s probably cutest on Miss River….

And last but not least is Edie’s stunner of a dress here

These girls had such a fun time playing dress up and just being girls together!  Can I do this with my friends?!  Jeez!

Now, you know I didn’t forget about the desserts!  And these are next level, specifically that stunner of a cake!  Beverly’s Bakery created something so beautiful, we really didn’t want to touch it!  But of course, we did!  And the cookies were adorable with our copper and navy detail continued and wording like “friends” and “thankful”.  Needless to say, the girls went nuts!

These cuties are just too much, and it got a little chilly, so obviously they needed their furs…

I need a beret in my life, but will never look nearly this cute!

And that’s a wrap! So much fun with these little ladies!!

Ending Summer with a visit to the Orange County Fair

One of my absolute FAVORITE things to do during the Summer is visit the Orange County Fair.  My husband and I have been going for years and now we take our little ones.  We even shot a few of our engagement photos there!!  It’s turned into a family tradition and sort of an end of Summer hurrah!  Growing up in Northern California the fair wasn’t something we really did that often, but down here in Orange County it’s a must!!

This Summer was one for the books!  When we moved earlier this year we moved a few miles inland and closer to the fair grounds.  Our new neighborhood has really easy access to the fair so our visits multiplied by quite a lot!  I wouldn’t put us on carnie status quite yet, but we definitely made the rounds!

Court especially enjoyed the fair this year and keeps asking to go back.  There’s something magical and quintessential Summer about it all.  From the corn dogs to the funnel cakes.  The pig races, the games and the rides, there’s just nothing like it.  We decided to take our kiddos for one last trip and brought along our girl Alison Bernier to take photos.  Each photo she captured is just pure joy and fun!!

Here are those little crazies!!  The girls are wearing the cutest clothing line Wil + Frida with the most adorable accessories from Henny & Coco.  Meanwhile the boys are looking fresh in their get up from Whistle & Flute.  They had me at pizza tank and red shorts… I mean, come on…. I definitely need both in my size!

Now, you may think, wow, they’re crazy for going to the fair with all of those kids and taking photos!  Yes, yes we are.  But you know what, these photos are really cute and in the end it was really fun!!!  Plus, look at these cute faces!!


We played loads of games and went on tons of rides… We decided we should go big or go home for our last shot at the Fair!!


Love these shots of the cute little bums….

I loved watching these kids make memories and getting excited going from ride to ride and game to game.  It was non stop but so fun.  Summer memories are the best and it’s fun seeing it through their eyes!

Even the littlest ones had to join in on the fun!  This was Cruz and Henry’s first Summer at the Fair and they had to get in on the fun too!!


Can you believe it’s been a year since we had these two?!  So crazy how fast it goes by… A year ago I was chowing down and REALLY pregnant at the Fair!!


Well, my many trips to the fair this Summer must have paid off because I was the big winner… I played two games and won both Court and Edie a huge prize!!  Pretty proud of myself, so proud that I had to share it here.  So there you go!  It’s not every day you are a hero, I was that day… Don’t be jealous…


And that’s a wrap!!  Now that kids are getting started at school it really does feel like Summer has come to an end.  Thanks for the last hurrah OC Fair!!  See you next year!!!

Beijos Best

Today marks the official last day of summer before the school year begins. It is crazy where all the time went. I swear it was just the last day of school, and summer was among us. But hey, summer you were good, and it’s time to go back to school, so mom can get some stuff done now. Ha! I don’t know about you, but my kids have an opinion about everything they wear. So when it came time to picking out back packs, they made sure they found just the right one. I mean, you gotta find the coolest backpack to make a statement on the playground on the 1st day of school, right? Rounding out my favorite back packs today! 

Starting off with the winners that my kids picked. I found the brand, State at Nordstrom, and although they are a bit pricey for kid backpacks, they are very durable and will last the whole school year.

Back to School Style for the Little Guys and Gals

Can you believe we are already uttering the words “Back to School”?!  It’s crazy to me that this time is already upon us!  I also don’t really understand the school schedules these days.  It always used to start in September but now it’s any time between early August to early September!  August is still Summer people!!!

This week will be dedicated to the school season and prepping your kiddos for going back to school.  Now, I don’t have an elementary school kiddo quite yet, but Court is heading into his first full year of Preschool this year!  Meanwhile, Abby has big girl Dylan going into second grade and both her and Leah have Kindergartners in both Edie and Jett!  How did these kids get so big?!

Either way we’ve gotta get these kids ready for their years ahead and one of the most important things is their back to school style.  When I was younger back to school shopping was always a big deal!  My mom would take my sister and I and we would shop till we dropped.  We would also get to go with my grandma who would treat us each to an outfit or two.   It was a special time and definitely got me excited for the upcoming year.  There’s something about a new outfit and backpack that have you feeling all sorts of confident!

Let’s start with my little guy Court!  Like I said, this is his first real year of Preschool.  Last year he started mid year and now I think he’s finally getting the hang of it.  He loves his teacher and his little friends, which makes me so happy!  I recently got him this little outfit for his first day back, even though he will get it messy in less than 5 minutes!  Haha!  At our Preschool fun comes  first and that is another thing that makes me happy!

I went to my go to for both of my boys, Zara.  I love what they have for kids and the price point, it’s always on trend and doesn’t break the bank.  His cute little shirt and pants are both from there.  The backpack and shoes are both from J Crew.  Court is obsessed with his new shoes, he calls them his “fast shoes”.  He needed a pair of shoes like this because they go on hikes daily at school and I thought these were perfect!

My favorite part of his outfit is his Preschool sweatshirt from Hatch for Kids!  They also have a Kindergarten sweatshirt that would be cute for the older kiddos!!  Both come in t-shirt versions as well!

And here are these little buddies!  I can’t believe how big they are getting.  They get so excited to see each other, it makes my heart so happy!


Now my pretty god daughter Edie!  I can’t believe she is a big kindergartner as of this Wednesday!!!  Her first day of school is coming up fast and I think we’re all kind of in denial about it.  Edie is really excited for her big first day, but I kind of want her to slow down, just a little bit!!

Best friends tend to think alike, and Leah also loves Zara!  Jeez, who doesn’t?!  So Edie is of course looking pretty in a sweet little dress from our favorite store.  Edie really likes pink, and by that I mean she doesn’t really like to wear anything else!  Haha!  I love the cute booties Leah got her from Old Navy, so stylish for Fall!  I want them in my size!!  They have so much cute stuff right now you guys, and the price is again, amazing!!  And of course, her cute kitty cat backpack completes the look, Leah got it at Zara on sale last year.  I found this one that they have now though that I thought was adorable.

More fun back to school ideas and inspiration coming the rest of this week!

Matching with Your Mini with Plum Pretty Sugar

It’s no secret that our kids’ closets are completely stocked with cooler clothes then our own. Who else has this problem? But can you blame us? I just can’t resist sometimes. When I had my daughter, Dylan, I was beyond excited to put forth all my hard practice of baby doll and Barbie dressing into action! I now finally get to dress a real life doll! Ha! Having both a boy and girl, the girls win hands down in the fun zone when it comes to clothes shopping. I love anything that is a mini version of what I would wear. However, Dylan, my sassy independent 7-year-old begs to differ. She is at the age, where all she wants to wear is anything with glitter, kitty cat graphic images, and these huge Jo Jo bows! It’s been quite the struggle for us to agree on outfit choices these days. I’m a little afraid that this is already happening, What is going to happen when she is 15? For Pete’s sake, did my 10 years of doll dressing become a waste? Sheesh! I do have one trick up my sleeve that she loves Every. Single. Time. Matching mom! I’m not sure who loves it more, me or her. You might have seen us gush about Plum Pretty Sugar and their super cute robes, here. But did you know they have a little girls line too?! It’s beyond adorable, and I had to get my hands on matching rompers for summer!

When I got these gems in the mail, I had Dylan open up the box. She loves when things come in the mail for her, as I’m sure every kid loves! The look on her face was priceless, I should have gotten it on video. She could not contain the excitement that she gets to match mom, and she just had to put it on right then and there.

The Amalfi Romper is an effortless romper featured with this summer’s off the shoulder trend, a flounce overlay bodice as well as a drawstring waist. I can’t say enough how light weight it is, and super comfy. A lot of rompers can ride up, if you know what I mean. This one is a keeper. The light weight material allows you to wear this a cover up, dress it up or dress it down for around town. And of course to pair with the Petit Saint Romper to match your mini! We paired our matching rompers with our current favorite sandals. My flats are from Target, and Dylan’s tan sandals are from Cotton On. 

I also fell in love with this Cay Off the Shoulder Tunic. Effortless, light weight, and super cute… this is definitely going to be a summer staple for me. I paired it with some sunnies, sandals, and my new summer staple, a straw envelope clutch I found on Amazon! This outfit will be on repeat all summer long.
