We are into full autumnal mode around here, Leakies! I finally want to look at my oven (Yes…even bake in it!) again, and my soft fluffy duvet and an extra mug of homemade pumpkin latte are calling my name. Which means of course the weather is mocking me by trying to push 90 degrees by Thursday.
Have you ever “forced” the coming season? Had it and said “Ok. I’m over it. Let’s move on?” Well this week with #LeakyLooks we’re taking a look at Safety-whether that’s snuggling down for a morning of movies and snuggles on a cloudy Saturday, or that last-minute trip up to Seattle before the seasonal rain hits the I-5 corridor. Let me know in the comments what you’d like to see next as we celebrate a month of #TLBsafeKids!
Remember, Leakies. Fashion-even breastfeeding fashion- is a great way to express who YOU are and tell a story of WHERE you are. Not who anyone else says you need to be, but who YOU want to be today. So shine on. Be YOU. All the way. No regrets. Because you are always ENOUGH.
We don’t make spur-of-the-moment trips that often with 4 little ones, but when we do, we GO for it! We pack light, pack the essentials, and get our roadtrip on (our kids last about 3 hours, which makes Seattle or the beach our only options for realistic road travel. lol.) I put this look together to highlight some of my “mama and baby” essentials! I am an organizing enthusiast so anything that can stack well, compartmentalize well and not take up a ton of space is totally my jam.

Oh Plaid. How I love thee. Let me count the ways! This look I pulled from some of my own wardrobe staples (including one of my favorite natural hand sanitizers!) One of our family’s favorite autumn activities is going to one of the many local farms we have in the area and sampling all of the fall bounty and preserves everyone has brought to the local farm markets! Weather is kind of back and forth so it’s best to dress in layers.

Bedtime. No matter where we are, that compound word is cause for exhausted celebration. A simple bedtime routine around here for our littles includes brushing hair, brushing teeth, and massaging a bit of therapeutic oil to relax and calm fidgety tired bodies. We usually run a cool mist humidifier at night as well to keep the air moist as our house can get a tad dry in the fall and winter.
