NEON + SILVER HALLOWEEN

We wanted to reimagine Halloween. Tired of the traditional orange and black, we decided to turn it on its head with neon and silver. Add some white owls, pumpkins and flowers, and voila! Here's a look at the photos from Jenna Elliott, One Eleven Photography.

The spiderweb backdrop was so fun and easy to make. Just washi tape.

Our little ghost pops are vegan coconut bars with goji berry eyes.

Skeleton hands from Michaels were painted neon before serving up the macarons.

Little owls flocking to the coconut cake.

Cantaloupe lent a fresh element while reminding us of Halloween's traditional orange. 

Care for skeleton hand soup, anyone? The plates, bowls and cups are all affordable from Target.

Handmade "ghost" tassels floated over the bookshelves.

SPOTLIGHT ON HELLO ALYSS

The kids recently got to hang out at our friends' The Great Escape play space. They had such a fun time, and with the incredibly talented Jenna Elliott there to capture the morning, it was the perfect opportunity to snap Mila's new Vierra Rose top from Hello Alyss.

Hello Alyss is an online boutique that I have loved since I discovered them a few years ago, and has remained a favorite destination for the beloved brand, Nellystella.

Now, Hello Alyss has introduced me to another brand, Vierra Rose. Their summer collection is filled with tutu skirts, eyelet, bubble sleeves, ruffles and pom poms. Beautiful, fun and playful pieces for vacay. I think we'll have to pack this top for Mexico!

BACK TO SCHOOL

Approaching Labor Day weekend, we truly know it's time for Back to School. As Mila heads into Pre-K and Brixton to Preschool, we thought we'd take a moment to capture our kids in a couple fun, mini scholar looks with pieces from The Children's Place, Gap, Zara, Thumbeline and J.Crew.
