Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe List: Part Two | Old Navy Haul

Today I’m going to be sharing with you our Old Navy Haul for Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe update and I’ll be giving you a complete list of my absolute favorite pieces that we purchased!

You’ve been seeing me post a LOT about the upcoming Spring/Summer seasons and it’s because I’m just too excited to ditch winter. Y’all, let me just tell you.. Living with toddlers is challenging on so many different levels- but I can’t stand layering during the winter. Fighting Sophia to put some stinkin’ pants on- or a shirt, jacket, gloves, hat, socks, boots, etc- over and over and over again, daily- and don’t even get me started on layers while potty training.. NO THANK YOU. The layering game struggle is REAL, y’all. Too real.

With that being said, dresses are a HUGE Spring and Summer must-have in the Mongelli household. After the serious winter wardrobe struggle, the complete ease of Spring and Summer wardrobes are welcomed with open arms!

Not only are dresses light, comfortable, and super cute, but you can dress them up or down with little-to-no effort! They’re just so dang easy! Needless to say, you’ll be seeing a lot of Sophia wearing dresses this season, and I’ll be highlighting a lot of our favorites for y’all during these next few months.

So, without further adou, let’s hop to it! Here is Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe List: Part Two:

(click the link above to see the full list-
I’m currently in the process of switching blog platforms so it’ll just show up in the future- bare with me friends!)

The really awesome thing about Old Navy is that they have some CRAZY good deals on toddler clothing- almost always! We got ALL OF THESE pieces above (plus some not pictured- yet) for around $130. And right now they have an EXTRA 15% off of EVERYTHING going on- no exclusions. That means those sale items are now priced even lower.. I’m not bitter. Haha!

That’s 8 DRESSES, 2 PAIRS of super cute shoes, and a bathing suit- that she really didn’t NEED- but obviously by now if you’re following along with me on social media- you know that my little mini-me is obessed with Minnie Mouse! That ruffled bathing suit was a MUST-HAVE in Sophia’s closet this summer and I couldn’t chance it selling out in her size later. I had to snatch it up quickly. Because come on, it’s so stinkin’ adorable and too good to pass up. (fits true to size- for those of you wondering!)

Lastly, I love all of the dresses that we purchased but my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE is definitely the Navy Elbow-Sleeve Swing Dress (it’s only $13 on sale from $18)! Not only is the print too adorable- but the material is soft and light-weight, it hits right above Sophia’s knees and it has a casual, relaxed fit which is wonderful because she can wear it all throughout the Spring and Summer seasons!

Enjoy the deals, ladies! Go forth & be fabulous!

Stylish Marble Beaded Apple Watch Bands: The Newest 2018 Luxe Accessory Apple Watch Trend

Apple Watch Lovers, Rejoice! Today I’m highlighting the newest 2018 accessory trend for the Apple Watch, and I can’t get enough! These gorgeous, super stylish, Luxe Marble Beaded Apple Watch Bands from Sophia Ann Boutique are EVERYTHING- and believe me, you don’t want to miss out on one!

SHOP THE APPLE WATCH BAND HERE

Most of you already know that I started out my many business adventures as a Stylist for Stella & Dot. One of the MAIN questions that I got from customers was- “How can we make my stack more feminine with this Apple Watch? The band is just too bulky and masculine.” I could go on and on and provide hundreds of these questions that I’ve gotten over the years- but I’m just going to cut to the chase. This sparked my imagination..

“If women LOVE their Apple Watches, but don’t love the bulky bands that they come with- are there other options?” THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS YES! My mind got turning and BOOM. Sophia Ann Boutique’s Marble Beaded Apple Watch Bands to the rescue!

Sophia Ann Boutique wanted to make sure that their bands were not only high quality, but also wanted to make sure that they were made with love right here in the USA! They sourced out and collaborated with the *incredibly talented* Heather Mella from Humble Gift Co and couldn’t be more pleased with the end result!

You can shop these Marble Beaded Apple Watch Bands: HERE

These high quality Marble Beaded Bands are available in Watch Sizes 38MM and 42MM, with 3 different wrist sizes to choose from to ensure that you get your perfect fit!

Tips Before You Purchase: You want to make sure that you get a semi tight (but comfortable) measurement of your wrist so that the band won’t be extremely loose and your watch can still track your heart rate, etc. The easiest way to measure your wrist is by TIGHTLY (but comfortably- I can’t stress this enough) tying a piece of string around your wrist where your watch will sit and then measure the string against a ruler.

Sophia Ann Boutique currently offers sizes 6″, 6.5″ and 7″

Trust me- these won’t last long (because duh- they’re SO CUTE and are about to sky-rocket in demand) so snatch one up asap, girlfriend!
