in my bag

in my bag – utah

in my bag // utahI bucked my fairly neutral usual packing strategy and filled my bag with a palette inspired by the high desert landscape of our destination… Utah! You may remember one of my favorite trips from a couple years back when we did THIS ROADTRIP but this time we are headed straight to Utah and staying there. Here’s what is coming with me.

in my bag: northern california

in-my-bag-northern-caliWe are planning a trip up to northern California next month to spend some time in Sonoma and then visit friends in Booneville and I am really looking forward to taking a step back and enjoying some time outdoors. I plan on never taking that “i’m busy” hat off so Rupert and Archie will get the hint. Mama needs a b/r/e/a/k. ;) While I do have a lot on my plate between now and then but you better believe I already started ordering a few things so they will arrive in time to make it in my suitcase.

I’M BUSY HAT // JUMPSUIT from Asos // D’ORSAY FLATS // FRINGE BAG from Zara  // OVERSIZED SHIRT from Madewell // BLACK JEANS from James Jeans // TAN MULES BY LOEFFLER RANDALL // GREY SWEATER from Topshop // LARGE BLACK TOTE from A Very Fine South // SUNGLASSES BY Illesteva

in my hospital bag

in my bag // hospital bag essentials // sarah sherman samuelAny day now it will be time to have a baby and our bags are officially packed. I am not sure which items I will actually end up using and which I won’t, but I’d rather err on being over prepared than under. I pulled from baby apps, what my doula told me to bring, and anything I thought would come in handy and made my own list of what I’ll be bringing with me to the hospital for our birth trip.

For personal care/toiletries to tuck into my bag, I turned to The Honest Company. They sent me over a sampling of their all natural goods and I was so impressed with the quality, so when they invited me to share what I’d be taking to the hospital, I thought you guys might want a peek as well.  I first found out about The Honest Company through instagram and their adorable diaper selection, but they also just launched an entire feeding section which has high quality items dedicated to the nursing mother, as well as formula fed babes, so I have a feeling I will be looking to them for just about all things in natural baby care.
