Cozy In Carmel

A couple of weekends ago, we spent a relaxing weekend in Carmel and it FINALLY truly felt like fall. It was cold enough for a hat, sweater and it actually rained a little bit! My friends have always made fun of me because I’m always so excited when it starts to rain because it means one thing….I can finally pull my rain boots out from my closet!

On Saturday, we really had no plans but to roam around, hit up a few great restaurants in Carmel and enjoy spending quality time together. (Aren’t those the best types of weekend getaways?!)

I decided to wear this cozy open front poncho wrap as it is SO comfortable, flattering and pairs well with a simple tee and leggings. Not only is this wrap good for styling the bump, but it can be worn after baby too for nursing! I love genius wardrobe pieces like this. Multiple different looks in one piece….sign me up!

My love for this pink pom pom beanie runs deep! You guys loved it too, as I got so many questions about it during our little getaway. I honestly can’t get over how many cute beanies Topshop came out with this year! Such a cute accessory to finish any winter look.

Ok, let’s talk Hunter rain boots for a second. A couple of you have messaged me asking if they are “worth the price”. Honestly, YES. I have 3 pairs of Hunter rain boots and all of them have lasted and held up their amazing quality. The black ones in this picture are over 3 years old and are holding up quite well. They do run big, so if I were you, size down!

This open front poncho would be a great investment for any new mama or mama to be as we head into the fall/winter months. Headed to the snow?! This is the perfect cozy wrap. Need to feed baby when you are out and about and it’s freezing outside?! This wrap acts as the perfect nursing blanket as well. Not only that, the grey is so neutral, you can mix the piece with anything!
