I am blown away. I have laid my eyes on the  MOST beautiful maturity clothing to ever exist: Frances Hart. The details, fabric, and stitching are all so beautiful it is hard to put into words. Right before this package arrived I was having a conversation with my husband. I was going through all of Eleanor’s old clothing and getting them ready for Eloise. 99.9% of what I bought or received for Eleanor was of the highest quality or from artisans or small businesses. It wasn’t until about 6 months when I threw in the towel and purchased a pack of onesies from H&M. She spit up, A LOT, so I wanted something she could ruin and I wouldn’t care. However, as I sat there going through her old clothing, I was blown away at how beautiful all of the items I had spent a little bit more money on had kept and how the H&M items completely changed (for the worse). I ended up getting rid of everything from H&M which made me feel beyond wasteful.

I told my husband how going forward I wanted to buy as few fast fashion items as possible because in the end, they become so wasteful. I would rather save and spend on quality items that last, than fill our world with items that lasted a few months. Now, I love a good Zara dress as much as the next girl but after going through the bin of clothing I just couldn’t stomach the waste of  inexpensive clothing. It honestly hurt my heart.

That was a bit of a tangent but receiving the box from Frances Hart only solidified my new way of thinking. Each piece is so exquisite and well-made. They are items I want to wear now and later. I have even talked to my tailor about altering the dresses for postpartum. I can’t adequately describe the quality of Frances Hart but I can highly recommend them to any expectant mother. Imagine investing in a dress that you can wear while pregnant but is equally as beautiful for postpartum. You kill two birds with one stone.  There was such a void in the market for pieces like this so I am so excited to discover them and cherish their pieces for years to come.

Eleanor’s Bow Art – Monica Ajenjo

One of the questions I get asked the most is about the art in our home, particularly Eleanor’s bow art. I love finding new artists and art. I spend hours getting lost on Artsy and Instagram hoping to find the piece I can’t live without. With Eleanor’s bow art I felt that way when I saw it. I couldn’t live without it. However, I can’t take one ounce of credit. My designer, Molly Graham, also has a love for art and has the most impeccable eye for it (it is very similar to mine). When she showed me Monica Ajenjo’s bows I died. They were so fun and exactly what I imagined going in Eleanor’s big girl room.

Upon first glance most people think it is a 3-d sculpture. I admit I was one of those people. When it arrived and it was a painting on canvas  I was blown away. Monica does such an amazing job of making the bow’s both fun and lifelike. It was the cherry on top of a very fun little girls room!
