14 Things You Need in Your Hospital Bag

14 Things You Need in Your Hospital Bag

In some ways having a second child is easier than the first. Why? You know what to expect (generally). You know how things will generally progress and what you need to pack. It was much easier to pack a hospital bag this time around because I knew exactly what I needed. I also had some ideas about what else to bring to make recovery easier.

After a bitter cold snap, it's warmed up a bit to the 20s and 30s this week. Yesterday I was running around doing errands with Aveline and I had to ditch the coat. Hauling around a diaper bag, shopping bags, purse, and baby carrier is no joke. I keep warm playing the pack mule. And as a bonus, my arms are starting to see some definition! When I know I am going to be in and out of stores and my car (with amazing heated seats), I typically dress in layers like a thin tee and thick sweater or flannel plaid and vest instead of a heavy coat to avoid overheating. Because of this, I own quite a few vests! I had a similar vest that I got at Target years ago (worn 20 ways in this post), but it was always a little snug and not exactly so I spotted this herringbone vest on sale on Amazon for only $20 and bought it right away! It's a little more expensive now, but I linked to a cheaper one, too. I love that it is made of a thick tweed and not nylon like the J.Crew version. It definitely fits true to size. I am wearing a small for reference. And for only $20 I can't complain. Even though this vest isn't as on trend like it once was, it goes with so many things and makes a great layer. I know I will still be wearing it a ton!

Life Lately | December

Has a month really passed already? Time keeps flying by, and I want it to slow down! These posts are a lot of work to put together, but I have been really enjoying taking a look back at all the things I have done over the past 30 days or so. It's fun sharing a bit more personal side of my life than just the outfits I wear. This month was a particularly fun one with holiday activities, family visits, and Aveline's first Christmas!
