FASHION FRIDAY: Returned from China, Meg & Dee

Meg & Dee are finally back from China!  And Jax & I are up visiting them!

Hopefully you’ll see much more of us after this week.  The transition for all of us (their return and our travel up north) has resulted in us being a little lax in our postings.

Here are some pics of Meg and Dee.

Hope you have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Fashion Friday: Little Boys Graphic Tees

It’s fashion friday!

It’s funny, both Meg and I are transitioning right.  I’m right in the middle of figuring our my graduate school acceptance and starting summer classes.  Meg just got back from her 3-4 month stay in China for her PHD work, which is why our posts have been a little light(not our usual) as of late.  I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite thing right now for Jax . . .

GRAPHIC TEES

We’ve pretty much transitioned to using only t-shirts and pants/shorts for Jax.  I find using two pieces easier with a squirmy one year old who won’t lay on his back for anything anymore . . . not even changing a diaper.  It’s a game of finding something that will occupy him while I change his diaper (or his clothes) or I’m chasing after him with a diaper, which he loves being chased.

I’ve found a lot of cute tees at target, old navy, carter’s, and of course WE MAKE THEM!  I shared with you some of our recent creations last week.  If you have a shirt that you want upcycled to a cute baby, toddler, or children’s tee, contact us at our shop or via email  for details.  Here are a few cute ones I found that I’m eying for Jax:

i actually bought this one in Target for really cheap, like $5.

This is supper cute. Love the bright neon color, which is totally popular this summer. Carter’s Tee – $10.50

ummm . . . don’t mom’s rock! of course they do. :) Carter’s Tee – $6

back of the above shirt.

So you get the idea . . . :)  We sometimes go through a couple shirts a day.  What can I say – Jax plays like a little boy, plus he’s learning to eat like a big kid.  So we are both messy often!

Have a great weekend!

ENJOY! ash

Wednesday Wants: Favorite Baby Blankets

I thought I’d share with you one of the best buys I thought I made for our little guy.  These aden + anais for Target Zooaroo blankets!

aden + anais for Target Zooaroo Baby Collection.Opens in a new window.

I bought the four pack right before he was born and I still use them everyday, night, etc.  They are perfect for hot weather climates, great for swaddling.  Fold them over into a triangle shape and they are the perfect for swaddling.  We used them as burp clothes also (is that gross?).

They kind of act as a sheet now that he is older, which is great again because it’s so hot here in the Arizona.  They breathe really well.  If you are in need of something that you will use longer than a year –  I would suggest these!

enjoy! ash

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Roosevelt Murals

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

PART II Of Roosevelt Murals

&

SPONSOR LOVE

We headed back down to Roosevelt to take some more shots with the murals down in that area.  Since it’s one of the art districts in Phoenix, the murals come and go before you know it sometimes.  So you really have to catch them quick.  I absolutely love this southwestern inspired one, which I felt would be perfect for some southwestern inspired accessories.

I just go these earrings from one of our sponsors!  Persophone’s Place!  I absolutely love them.  They are supper long and beaded.  They go with just about everything I own . . . I have fairly simple outfits and when you have such a cool pair of statement piece earrings, sometimes it’s great to tone down the other parts of your outfit (in my opinion).  She’s has shorter versions if you prefer!

Unfortunately, I rarely get to wear them right now . . . Jax LOVES it when I wear dangly earrings.  And my ears LOVE it when he pulls them too (insert dripping sarcasm here)!  I get to wear them at least once a week when I’m working and he’s hanging out with his dad on his day off.

This dinosaur mural is across the way from the southwestern one.  Its so cute!  Feels really funky and I believe it’s spray painted on.

By this time, jax was starting to loose it and get super squirmy.  He wants to be off running around (although he hasn’t quite figured out the walking/running part, but he can sure book it in a crawl).

I’m wearing forever21 top and tank (man – forever21 is SO affordable, $5 tank tops), H&M pants, Target ballet flats in a cool bright colored southwestern pattern, thrifted jewelry, and you can get my fantastic earring here – at Persephone’s Place.

on jax: thrifted Jack & Jill gray linen shorts, and thrifted vintage yellow polo shirt.

hope you enjoyed Fashion Friday!  check out the cool murals around Phoenix when your in town.

have a great weekend! ash

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Scottsdale Civic Center

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

This week we went to Tempe Town Lake.  It’s pretty, but next time we’ll go when it’s a little warmer and perhaps greener!  We are definitely going casual these days.  I think it’s hard not with a child!

I’m wearing gray skinny jeans from H&M (thrifted at Buffalo Exchange), but they are definately starting to get a little baggy as I continue to loose my baby weight!  I didn’t realize they were sort of baggy (maybe they only look that way to me).  I love mixing styles – the dolman sleeve, tribal shirt (thrited at Buffalo Exchange)  with funky 70’s inspired blue earrings.  I also like combining colors that don’t necessarily match, different hues of blues, etc.  And black ballet flats from Target.

Does it work?  I hope so!  Otherwise I’m sure I look pretty silly right now!  LOL.

Jaxon’s wearing a cute grey and white striped shirt from Carters, earth green Gap jeans (that have an elastic waste band – the waistband is actually elastic – not the kind where the elastic is sewn into it causing bunching – I think they’re genius).  On Me: Georgia O’Keeffe inspired ring (the off white rose one), and copper wire ring (thrifted).

ENJOY! and have a great weekend!

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax PHX Art

It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

We went to the Phoenix Art Museum this week (well just outside because they had a cool dinosaur sculpture by Sui Jianguo out front – click the link to read more about the sculpture).  So here are the pics from the shoot!

I don’t know where your little ones are in their developmental stages, but Jax is crawling on all fours now!  He’s a maniac, he never sits still anymore.  It’s amazing to see.

Sorry my posts are so short lately!  Taking care of a 9 month old, taking 3 classes, and making onesies for our shop is a little time consuming.  Meg is transitioning from US to China and will be here a little more often soon (she did Wednesday Wants yesterday :)).  Our postings should get more regular pretty soon as we figure out our schedules.
ENJOY! and have a great weekend!

PS: here’s a pic of jax, me, and our photographer – Brynn, my sis, with Movement Restoration!
i love that even the dinosaur is smiling in this pic!

FASHION FRIDAY (mommy & me): Ash & Jax Scottsdale Civic Center

It’s Fashion Friday!

Jax and I had a great day!  We hung out with Jax’s Aunties, Brynn & Trisha (we hang out with them a lot, we LOVE them).  We just kind of relaxed, went to food truck fridays downtown, and then walked around their neighborhood.  Here’s some shots from our afternoon walk…

Your probably going to see a lot of Jax & I for the next couple of months.  Meg and Dee (and Nate) are in China for the spring semester working on her PHD panda study!  Yes, she might just be the luckiest girl alive (oh wait it’s probably dee who’s the luckiest girl alive- she gets to be around panda’s at just under 2 years of age, not to mention she has meg for a mommy! ahem, and nate for a daddy :) )…

Anyway, I’ll try to make my posts great, but I apologize ahead of time if I get a little old! LOL…

ENJOY & HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND! ash

PS>>> here’s a sneak peak of jax’s valentines day cards…
