1. My sweetest Valentine

    Abercrombie Kids for Valentines6

    In preparation of Valentine’s Day I decided to spend an afternoon decorating cupcakes with Reese to hand out to friends from school. I have been buying fun Valentine’s cake decorations and sprinkles for weeks, so it was fun to take out all our goodies and get to work.

    It was too sweet that me and my mini sous chef matched for our cupcake date in blue stripes thanks to Abercrombie. Reese is wearing an Abercrombie Kids “Boyfriend Cardigan”, a ribbed tank underneath, and pattern leggings. My sweater is Easy Crew Sweater in turquoise paired to ankle super skinnies {hey, I am moving to Miami and am ready for some white!!}.

    It was such a sweet day and we couldn’t wait to taste test and deliver the goodies! The icing on the cake for sure were the glittery heart toppers. Can’t wait for Valentine’s!

  2. Winter Strolls

    This winter season, Reese and I have really been taking advantage of this warm winter weather by spending extra time outdoors. Whether it’s walking in our neighborhood or playing at the park, we love that we can ditch our winter coats and show off our cute and cozy knits.

    I have gotten really into turtlenecks, so for today’s shoot I wore a turtleneck sweater dress from Abercrombie paired back to M. Gemi booties {this dress is sold out but some similar turtleneck tops are here and here}. Then for Reese, I am just in love with the Abercrombie Kids jeggings {the elastic waistband is great for her, while the style looks like a mini version of my jeans!}. Paired back to a sweet Abercrombie Kids star sweater, she looks too cute! {Some other Abercrombie toddler sweaters with super cute patterns are here and here.}

    Hope you guys are having as much fun outside as we are!

  3. Tutus & End of Year Cheer

    Happy almost New Year everyone!

    When I reflect back on 2015 I simply can’t believe how much has happened. We moved from New York City {the #ChateauFH} to Nashville {the #TNChateauFH}. Fashionable Hostess hit some of my life-long goals; I had a fabulous review via “Behind the Blog” on Style Me Pretty, Fashion Week Daily named FH a “Blogger Spotlight”, and my Home Tour was featured in the New York Times!

    Then on the home front, Reese and Brooks have gone from what feels like little babies to chatty, active, and absolutely hysterical toddlers. They love to play together but more importantly, they really love each other. My favorite part of the day is around bedtime when Reese puts her arm around Brooks and holds him close for their last TV show or bedtime story. It truly warms my heart.

    To bring in the New Year we are spending time with family in Miami, so we decided to shoot our last look of the year here. No coats necessary {and to be honest sleeves were even pushing it} but Reese just cannot get enough of her tutu dresses. {Here she is wearing an Old Navy 2-in-1 floral tutu.} Like most three year olds, she just loves to spin and twist in every which way, so these dresses have become her staple. As for shoes, I will tell you that Old Navy has been my go-to for cute boots for Reese all year long. I bought her brown ones {this post}, black ones {this post}, and now grey! Reese loves that these are fur lined, aka “so cozy mommy” while I love that they go with dresses and pants to instantly finish off the look.

    I am so grateful that you have joined me and my family on this year’s ride and I look forward to a big and eventful 2016 together!
