    Can we talk about the cuteness overload in today’s post?! Sunshine, smiles, stripes, and sweets.

    Welcome back to our backyard {did you catch a tour in this post?!}. We have been spending endless hours playing in the sun and swimming in our pool and the kids are in seventh heaven. From the very the moment we decided to move to Miami and found a house with a pool my husband was on a mission to find the kids a swim instructor, meanwhile I was on the hunt for the cutest toddler bathing suits online. So I had to share with you the sweetest company I came across because their bathing suits are seriously adorable, called the Beaufort Bonnet Company. Darling details, preppy, pastel, I mean, it’s my instagram in a bathing suit! I am also in love with their embroidered seersucker beach towels for camp {or great baby shower gifts this summer}.

    In showing off these finds I was excited to have a shoot savoring our first summer in our new house {just one month before Brooks turns two}! Time is just flying and I can’t believe how much these guys have grown up! I know I do tons of cocktail parties and more adult focused gatherings on the blog, but this shoot has inspired me todo more family-friendly fun {be in touch if you have any ideas!!}. Looking forward to a fab summer!

    Details on the shoot: Reese is in the pink Rodeo Drive Suit, Brooks is in the blue Tortuga Swim Trunks, I am wearing a white romper by 6 Shore Road by Pooja , and this adorable kids craft table and chairs set is Kid Kraft which is on sale right now on Gilt!

  2. TeePees & Prints – Pillowfort X Target

    When designing Brooks’ new room, I wanted it to be super cozy with an element of fun. In doing so, I chose a soft blue color palette for the walls, Benjamin Moore 1625 Blue Lace {the same as his last nursery}, contrasted to all white furniture, and then a few trendy toys.  {I know, it sounds like an oxymoron, but there are actually cute and cool toys out there!} Ie. I found the cutest selection via Pillowfort for Target, like this TeePee! Other Pillowfort finds included this heart lamp that we got for Reese’s room {I will be sharing the reveal soon!} and an adorable unicorn head for the playroom. But they have everything from art prints to bedding!

    As for the TeePee… isn’t it just amazing how little kids can play peek-a-boo for hours and never cease to be amazed. Between me, Reese, my husband and Brooks, we all spent the entire weekend climbing in and out of this teepee, whether it was for hide and seek or to cozy up with a book. Brooks’ room was the destination for fun! I am so happy he is as excited about his room as I am {because you know I am all about aesthetic!}. Be sure to checkout Pillowfort at Target for any kid friendly decorative additions to your space. And stay tuned as I share more rooms in the #MiaChateauFH.

  3. Romping Around

    Since leaving Nashville we have been living at my mom’s house while our new home is undergoing a bit of renovation. I have to admit that I go over there a minimum of three times a day to check up on the workers and see what’s been done… to say that I am excited is an understatement! So when the second level of the house with the kids rooms was done a week ago, I couldn’t wait to set up the nurseries and playroom with all of Reese and Brooks’ toys, beds, and decor to make it feel like home. I know that moving can be hard for small children {and probably very confusing} so I knew that if they walked into a beautiful space that had all of their things {favorite rockers, trains, and dolls} they would be ecstatic. The big reveal when we brought them over for the first time was a better success than I could have imagined. The kids squealed and jumped for joy when they saw their things! Here Reese found her makeup vanity and toy makeup so we got immediately to playing imaginary ‘dress up’. Reese’s adorable printed capri jumpsuit, sandals, and headband are from Old Navy and actually my short chambray romper is from Old Navy too; I love that we almost match! {And these easy breezy one pieces are my new go-to in Miami!}. Looking forward to revealing their sweet spaces soon!
