1. 9 Month Baby: Baby Vest Trend

    My favorite baby clothes are the brands I wear made in miniature {see other mini outfits on the FHB here}. So when I was visiting my family in Nashville two weeks ago and saw this ridiculously cute Patagonia Retro-X Vest in Infant I nearly passed out over how cute it was and couldn’t wait for a chilly fall day so we could whip it out. I decided on her first day wearing it that we needed to do a mommy-baby vest photo shoot to capture her stylishness.

  5. Host a Business Dinner

    When my husband told me he wanted to invite some of his business associates over for dinner, he made it clear that the table needed to be elegant and sleek, rather than “frou frou” pretty.
