VISITING A CHRISTMAS TREE FARM

I've been on the hunt for a Christmas tree farm since Mila's first Christmas, so I was excited to finally find Peltzer Pines (through JL Designs on Instagram). We visited their Brea farm location, which is less than an hour from Los Angeles.

Mila loved leading the way through the rows of trees. 

As a note, these trees are pines (not the firs that we're used to).

Choose your tree and they cut it down for you to take home. That's pretty fresh!

Visiting a tree farm was a fun family activity that I could easily see becoming an annual tradition. 

Mila's dress is Tutu Du Monde via Thumbeline and her moccasins are Lil'fut and Company.

HOLIDAY DRESSING WITH RAINEY'S CLOSET

I'm obsessed with mini style, Nellystella and Tutu Du Monde being two favorites. I've spent way too many nights "researching" dresses for Mila. And then when it came to holiday photos, I felt like she practically needed a new wardrobe. It's stressful enough so it felt like such a relief to have some of the best looks to borrow from Rainey's Closet. I narrowed it down to a couple outfits and wanted to share them with you here.

Wishing you and your little ones a beautiful Christmas! xoxo

OLLI ELLA

Sisters! [We may be partial to sisters.] Genius sisters Chloe and Olivia started Olli Ella as a happy accident. After not being able to find a nursing chair to fit the eclectic feel of her first childโ€™s nursery, Chloe Brookman, and her sister Olivia, designed a chair themselves. Since then they've turned the endeavor into a beautiful, modern home decor line, with a focus on the nursery. We especially love their baskets and wanted to share a few of them here with you. 

So cute for home or a trip to the farmers' market! 

SIS'S MAY FAVORITES

May is a busy month, isn't it?! Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day and Memorial Day. And one of these years, I swear, I will actually celebrate May Day. So there's a lot of celebrating to accomplish this month. With all of that in mind, here are my May favorites!
