Meet Our Moms: Heather & Emily
Posted on August 16 2016
One of our newest Brand Ambassador mom & daughter pair is Heather and her sweet little one, Emily. We had the opportunity to sit down with Heather to learn more about them!
Tell us about yourself & your little one!
We reside in Trumbull, CT and I am a full time stay at home mommy. Our days are spent swimming in the pool, playing in the sandbox, taking walks and going on many different adventures throughout the day. Miss Emily is a little Explorer and when she isn't reading monkey mouse books or playing with her favorite Elmo toy, she is coloring pictures and making beautiful play doh creations. We are both Capricorns and our birthdays are 5 days apart. Emily was the New Years baby of 2015 at our local hospital!
When people visit your blog, what can they expect to find?
Overloaded cuteness and daily pictures of Emily! I am known to document all of her adventures and be the mom who takes way too many photos :)
Overall how would you define your style?
My style is very feminine and classic. I tend to love any bright, floral prints and anything pink or green!
What do you look for when picking out clothing for both yourself and your daughter?
I try to find colors and/or patterns that will compliment our skin tones and features. We both have light skin and hair so brighter colors tend to pop well and highlight our features.
Is there any outfit you wish your daughter never grew out of and if so, what was it?
All of her one piece floral rompers are my most cherished articles of clothing. I have even purchased some in multiple sizes so she can continue wearing them! Those, along with all of the "my first holiday" onesies are so special to me and I have them all stored away in a special bin :)
What is your go-to clothing item in your closet & why?
I have to say my black leggings are my number one favorite piece of clothing because they can easily be dressed up or down. Whether they're paired with heels for a night out, tall boots in the fall, or converse sneakers to run errands, they are always flattering and never go out of style!
If you could pick any matching set from me N mommy, what would it be and why?
I love all of the matching me N mommy dresses because Emily and I have a yearly tradition of always matching on mothers day. Every year I buy a new matching dress set so we can always cherish the photos and memories created each year. I make a joke that I will continue the tradition until she no longer thinks I'm cool enough to match her :)
What’s the best parenting advice you’ve ever received and from who?
Both my own mother and mother in-law have told me over and over not to overthink things and just trust my inner maternal instincts. It's so easy to refer to the Internet or books for guidance but those things can sometimes leave you feeling even more confused! Women have been raising babies for centuries without all of the technology we have today and although it's easier said than done, you just have to keep reminding yourself that you're doing a great job and the rest will fall into place!
