My Instagram feed, and the Instagram feeds of many bloggers, is filled with colorful outfits with captions like “Sunday brunch!”. But, let’s be honest, what I really wear on the weekends is not fancy. We go for comfort in my house, but try not to look like a family of slobs (although that’s been known to happen too).
In the cooler months, Anel and I are constantly reaching for our Patagonias. I basically live in my Better Sweater from October-March. I throw mine on to walk the dog or over PJs to watch a movie at night. Anel wears his to mow the lawn and go for hikes It’s surprisingly warm and the perfect preppy sweatshirt alternative. I have this quilted version on my Christmas list this year (mom, are you reading this?!).
When I found Nordstrom’s selection of baby Patagonia, my heart skipped a beat. From puffer vests to fleeces, it couldn’t be cuter. Talk about preppy mom heaven, am I right? I bought this fleece for Amalia for fall and she wears it on our walks everyday.
It’s a little big because I got her a 3-6 month size, thinking that at 3.5 months she would fit into it. She’s just a tiny peanut though, and wearing 0-3 months still. Total side note, but does anyone else think that baby sizing is so dumb? I feel like it should be by weight instead of age.
So I thought oh how cute will it be to do a post in our matching Patagonia’s, smiling and happy. Wrong! For some reason, Amalia wasn’t feeling this photo shoot, so we had to cut it short. I was going to reshoot it, but then thought that I should show you what we really captured so you guys don’t think that I have a giggly baby 100% of the time.
Sometimes motherhood gets painted like that online, and it’s not. Babies get tired, babies cry, and babies aren’t always down to take photos with their moms apparently.
