Mother's Day in Milly for Kohl's

Springtime has been such a nice time to have a baby.  We've been enjoying eating on the patio and taking walks around the neighborhood and nearby trails.  Mother's Day this past Sunday was another beautiful day.  After breakfast in bed and a gift from Jon and Ethan (a Kindle Paperwhite - perfect for all of the time I have spent nursing), we went to mass (Ethan slept soundly in his seat the whole time) and then spent the day barbecuing with our families.  Ethan looked adorable in a 1st Mother's Day onesie from my friend, Nicole.  I especially love the little bow tie!  

I wore this printed caftan from the Milly for DesigNation line at Kohl's (for part of the day - having a newborn means multiple outfit changes for both baby and mommy).  I ran out one night to try on a few items from the line.  In addition to the tunic, I also ended up getting the striped shirt dress and this fun tie-dye maxi.  I also really like these scuba dresses and skirts and still might order this one or this one if they stay available and the price drops some.

First Night Out After Baby

We had our first night out without the baby this past Friday night for a friend's 30th birthday party.  It was a little hard leaving Ethan at home for a few hours, but he enjoyed spending some time with his Pop Pop!

I picked up this lightweight sweater at Loft the other day.  (There's one about a 15 minute walk from our house so Ethan and I ventured over there on one of our walks.)  It's from their Lou & Grey line.  With its easy fit and light linen and cotton fabric, it will be a perfect outer layer for the warmer months.  I can see wearing it while sitting outside down the shore with some casual shorts or printed pants.
