OOTD Buddha pants

I miss doing OOTDs and seeing everyone’s OOTDs whether it be on instagram or on their blogs. Who else?

It’s been a while since we’ve gone to the forest for a bit of exploring. It was a super hot day earlier this week, so I put on my Buddha Pants (these were a PR gift). I packed a lunch and plenty of water for the toddler and I and we stayed in the shade to beat the heat. 

These pants are so lightweight, comfortable and super nice and flowy. They’re truly the epitome of portability as they fold themselves into their own tiny pocket. I received these back in June and have had tons of opportunities to wear them during the hot California summer. They have different styles to choose from beyond the classic harem style, but they have jogger style, jumpsuits and more.

Take a look! They’re also available on Amazon.

OOTD from Tom Cridland’s sustainable clothing line

Tom Cridland is a singer songwriter, fashion designer, podcaster and entrepreneur and he recently launched the world’s first ever full collection of sustainable clothing that is backed with a 30 Year Guarantee. And I got to check out an item from the collection. 30 Year Hoodies, T-Shirts, Sweatshirts and more are made out of 100% GOTs certified organic cotton, and built to last a lifetime. 

Despite the summer weather here in California, the mornings have always been on the cooler side. I love to cozy up in loungewear most of the time, especially with two small boys at home. I’ve been going on 5:30am walks with my littlest guy, and have been wearing this hoody when it’s crisp outside.

If you’re on the hunt for super soft and cozy basics that are long lasting check out Tom Cridland’s collection. Here, I’m wearing the sustainable hoodies, made out of organic cotton and recycled polyester. It comes in an incredible amount of colours from pull-over hoodies to zip ups.

A few more hikes until he’s a big brother!

This post is sponsored by Zappos.

As of September, it’s been 6 months since my son has seen his friends. He gets it man, at 2.5 years old he talks about them daily, especially when we have our nightly chat before he goes to bed. He asks me what they’re doing, wondering what they too are doing throughout the days. We facetime a handful of times but it’s not the same really, is it?

I’m primarily a homebody and could stay home for ages, but seeing my little guy this way is heartbreaking. In California the rates of COVID haven’t really gone down significantly enough for us to be comfortable to socialize with others. So, waiting it out is what we’re doing. It’s tough on my little guy. Luckily I’m a SAHM so I can cater to his needs, but it’s also been tough when we “have” to stay inside due to the poor air quality. 

To get some of that toddler energy out of him, and his mind off not being able to see his little pals we’ve been playing outside mostly this summer. All by ourselves.

I’ve said this before throughout my entire pregnancy, but I’ve been trying to take bebs out in nature, in the forest exploring with me for some one-on-one solo time before he’s a big brother come November. I’m really loving it to be honest because there’s only a short amount of time left of him being an only child. I’m milking this time together.

That, and it’s fantastic to breathe in some fresh air after the horrible wildfires around California making the air quality so unhealthy we couldn’t step outside. For a while there, we really took fresh air for granted. We hadn’t felt comfortable leaving our house to go for walks outside since the air quality was horrible. Especially with a toddler with young lungs, and me being pregnant. Here’s bebs and I enjoying the better weather, waiting for the cooler temps to roll on in. Taking full advantage of the California sunshine. Gettin’ all that vitamin D in! #sponsored I shopped on Zappos for my Merrell Jungle Moc shoes that I’m wearing here in this photos. My husband Scott has shopped on Zappos website in the past, but it’s the first time for me. Their customer experience is down to a science. It’s great since their shipping is super fast and free, and I love their super long generous 365 day return policy.

Back to the Merrell Jungle Moc shoes, I #GotItOnZappos. Being in my 3rd and final trimester of my final pregnancy I am looking for ultimate comfort in a shoe. Something I can wear all day long if need-be, and be stylish to wear with the clothing choices I’m wearing right now: which is basically all comfort wear too. Ha.
