1. 17 Month Toddler: Baby Boyfriend Jeans

    IMG_2068floppedlonging

    The Boyfriend jean has always been a trend I just can’t pull off. First of all, what are boyfriend jeans? They are slouchy, slightly loose denim pants that appear as if you borrowed them from your boyfriend {or in my case, husband}. To wear them stylishly, you must pair them back to a fitted top to counterbalance the loose fit.

    I have never been one to wear tight tops {except for when I am pregnant}, so I was bummed to throw in the towel when it came to the trend, that is until I saw they make boyfriend jeans for babies!! Unlike her mother, little Miss Reese can rock a tight tank over her adorable belly better than most. So I couldn’t be more excited when I found Old Navy railroad striped boyfriend jeans in her size and paired them  back to a fitted tank. I love that she is so comfy in them too!

    And as if this look wasn’t trendy enough, I almost died when I found an oversized Military Green Cargo Vest at Old Navy to layer over top. {I actually went with their Canvas Utility Jacket for myself!}. Watch out trendsetters, this munchkin is on the loose!

  2. Host a Spring Wine and Cheese Night

    When it comes to throwing a fabulous wine and cheese party, the right ingredients make all of the difference. I host these gatherings weekly {especially now that it is easier to have people over due to the babies} so I have come up with a stellar list of essentials. Here are my four recommendations to throwing a successful evening: 1. Choose good quality {and fancy looking} crackers. I am a huge fan of Carr’s Crackers. They are light in flavor and texture which is exactly what is recommended to be paired back to a Pinot Grigio. {You don’t want a cheese…

    For my mom’s 55th birthday, she decided to gather her ten closest friends and make a girls trip to NYC. On the agenda: fancy dinners, Broadway shows, and even night clubs, but I wanted to make sure to throw some sort of FH element into the mix. I decided the perfect way todo so would be to host a Pre-Theatre Happy Hour – with a gorgeous champagne and desserts spread at Chateau FH for the ladies to enjoy. To make it extra special I added some personalized touches which made some great birthday party ideas. Since Moet & Chandon Rose Champagne was…
