Honestly August, where did you go? From my birthday to traveling, plus my busiest blog month postpartum, I cannot believe it is September already. I know I say something similar every month, but I mean it THE MOST this month. It was a wonderful, joy-filled 31 days, but after August, the rest of the year just flies by. I had so much good content planned for August and honestly life just happened. I was on a roll in July and thought that would continue for August, but alas, here we are. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it out to you this month. Thanks for sticking with me as I figure out what life looks like with twins while trying to work a full-time job part-time.

Here are some things I’ve been loving the past several weeks. Everything is linked below the collage. Enjoy!

  1. Madewell Tie Front Wrap Top (c/o) and Midi Skirt in Cottage Garden. I haven’t been this obsessed with a garment in a while. It is the perfect summer to fall transition set and can be styled in so many ways. I love the rich color and the pattern is perfect. I took a S in the top and a 4 in the skirt.

  2. Lunya Washable Silk Tee. (c/o) I shared their silk set a couple years ago here in this Lunya review, but I’m back sharing their tee set which I think I like even more?! They gave me a discount code LAURENMGIFT20 to get $20 off your Lunya purchase of $100 or more. Grab them for yourself or a loved one for this holiday season because they are that good!! I have it in navy.

  3. Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair. (c/o) I was advised against this chair and that it wasn’t worth it when I registered, but I wish I had registered for them, because they are great! I love how they adjust with the baby and are ergonomically created. We do have the tray attachment, but you don’t need it / can just pull the chair up to your table. They also created the Newborn Bundle after the twins were born which would have been great for their newborn phase. Highly recommend!

  4. The Good Crisp Company. The other month I really wanted some pringles and upon shopping, I found these. They are crispier and better for you than Pringles, so I’m like heck yes! The original is my favorite, but the sour cream and onion and barbecue are good too.

  5. Hall Wine: This is one of our favorite wineries! We are headed back this month and I am excited to just sit and sip. For those who can’t make it to Napa, you can get 10% off your first order when you use discount code LAUREN. They also give 10% off case purchases and free shipping 6+ bottles! Jack’s Masterpiece is one of my favorite bottles.

  6. Mott and Bow Slim Wooseter Mens Jeans. (c/o) I had to share these because these are Nick’s favorite jeans. They look great on him and he loves the coloring and quality. We just added another pair to his wardrobe because that is how much he wears them!

  7. Millymook Bucket Hat. I found these hats when we were in Sun Valley and I love them! They are UPF 50 and reversible. I also really like the toggle to tighten versus velcro as velcro can irritate the twins’ skin. They are somewhat hard to find in the states, but this is similar to the one Olive has. The Dozer brand is their boys brand and what Cyprus has, but I haven’t been able to find one to share.

  8. Dagne Dover Ace Fanny Pack. I love the entire Dagne Dover brand so it just made sense for me to add the fanny pack to my collection. While I wish it was a little bigger, I really like it. It is the DD quality that is so great and I can zip it closed with one hand which is harder to do with my other belt bags.

  9. Basal Body Temperature Thermometer. I mentioned that I take my temperature every morning here, but my thermometer that I used has since broken and been discontinued. I replaced it with this $10 thermometer and it works great. A basal body thermometer takes your temperature with an extra decimal point so it is a little different than your average home thermometer.

  10. Free People Arzel Dress. I haven’t purchased a new dress for myself in a while. When I found this one I knew it was it! I took it in an XS since it is oversized. I wore it out dancing and since it is on the short side and is a little oversized, I wore shorts under it and it was fine. This dress will look great with boots come fall and sandals / slides in the spring and summer. I purchased the teal hue, but it comes in a handful of other colors.
