I wish I could say that the reason was because I am on a health kick that requires all-organic/fresh vegetables, but in reality it started because it is the only thing open in New York at 8 am {other than Starbucks} when I am taking the FHB on our morning stroll.

    The FHB wanted in on the whole nautical trend, so I was ecstatic when I found her this adorable onesie from Kissy Kissy. To complement the outfit, I love these ridiculously cute white bow espadrilles from Baby Gap. {The FHB likes that they are easy to put on due to the soft velcro closure; I love that they actually stay on since they secure around the ankle.} As for her bow, the bigger the better! This one is from Nodstrom {unfortunately only available in-stores.} I am shocked at how many milestones have been marked since turning five months old. She is…
