friday I’m in love.

welcome back Friday!

{one} colorstripe cardigan.

{via Anthropologie}

Eloise & I were perusing Anthro earlier in the week to check out some new arrivals for the fall (& also to look for handtowels for our guest bath, but no luck!) & I had to stop when I saw this cardigan. Navy blue & stripes are pretty much my jam, so I think this is a must-have for fall!

{two} DIY diaper cover.

the Perfect Diaper and Nappy Cover pattern and tutorial

{via Dana Made It}

While summer is really the best time for diaper covers (or bloomers as I like to call them), I have had a few on my to-make list for Eloise; one is for her Halloween costume (which I am so excited about! We are doing family costumes this year – per usual – & this one is really fun!) & the other is for her formal dress which I made for Jess & Cale’s wedding next month in Austin. (I will post updates on both next month!) Any-hoo, this tutorial is awesome & includes a really great pattern. I was able to easily finish one during Eloise’s afternoon nap, so I have a feeling I will be making many more (they work over tights, right)!

{three} kid & coe {family vacation rentals}.

we have been traveling a bit with Eloise this year (& have two more trips coming up!) & each time we learn something new about traveling with a little one. In our ideal world, our lodging would meet these requirements: a separate sleeping space for Eloise (we all sleep better if we aren’t sharing a space), a mostly kid-friendly living area, “house” amenities like a full kitchen & maybe laundry, walkability (to shops, restaurants, grocery store), & stocked with baby gear (Pack N Play, highchair, etc.). while this is definitely a dream list, we have found that the lodging we stay in is so much more important now that we have eloise in tow; before kids we spent most of our time out & about, really only sleeping where we were staying, but until naptime is done (which will be some time!) we end up spending a lot of time where we are staying. Enter Kid & Coe. This is the AirBNB for families! Plus, they are all over the world. I have spent some time perusing the site & it gives me such a travel bug! Who wants to take a trip?

& a HUGE congratulations to Mary Beth who tied the knot last weekend! (see Kendra’s post here)
