Cool Cobalt Lookbook

Zara Dress (love this one that is similar)  |  Christian Louboutin Pumps  |  Chanel Bag  |  

t+j Designs Silver Hammered Bangle Set  |  Yellow Oval Drop Necklace to launch this week!  

Staying cool in our 90 degree weather with a cobalt blue Zara dress.  It was so nice to have a relaxing weekend after a busy week with the Today Show feature.  I couldn’t ask for a better couple of months; the birth of my son, my jewelry line featured on the Today Show, being mentioned as the top 5 Chicago fashion blogs by Corri McFadden and this week my living/dining room is being photographed for a small article in a Chicago magazine.  In addition, my sister is coming to visit!   Life is great and I couldn’t ask for anything more.  Well, maybe more sleep :).  

For those of you wondering how my little Grant is doing, he is wonderful.  Can’t believe he is 7 weeks old.  I made the mistake of letting him sleep with me in our bed and now he won’t sleep in his bassinet.  Working on getting him to sleep at night in his bed and not mine.

    Nice colours you've got going on there – is the Chanel difficult to keep clean?

    We only used the bassinet for a couple of days as well. Mia sleep with us on the bed, too, but she's on her bouncer. I absolutely love the bouncer. It's perfect and is a great lifesaver when it comes to putting her to sleep because it's got the vibrate & sound option. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Haha!Sounds like everything is going well for you! Lack of sleep is just a minor thing, right? Haha! I'm lacking some myself right now because my husband just went back to work today, and it's definitely been different without him. Anyway, I love the look! Gorgeous dress, and I absolutely love the shoes. So classic. Congratulations on all your features!! 🙂 You absolutely deserve it.I love the necklace. What a great pop of color.And that's it for my long-winded comment. Haha! 🙂

    gorgeous necklace with that dress Jen, you look great! about baby sleeping with you, yes do put him on the bassinet!!! we put K on our bed from day one just to make it easier for me to wake up at night to feed, that was a big huge mistake. When they are in the bassinet, it's easier to move from that to crib. It took kaylee 9 M before we could get her to sleep in her own crib!
