I feel a little bit like a broken record, but we are slowly but surely settling in to our new home and city in the Salt Lake City area! We are taking things one step as a time, as we have time, while also trying to soak up the wonderful Summer and get acquainted to the new places to eat, see and visit as well. We still have about 1/2 of our boxes to unpack (including many that house my clothes and shoes, eeks), we’re in the middle of the daycare hunt, we test drove some cars (3 row SUV or minivan is the debate), and we’re waiting to finish baby sister’s room last… but it really will be no time before she gets here!
One thing I have realized about the Salt Lake City/Utah area is that there are a TON, I mean a ton of start up shops, clothing shops, handmade shops, etc. in this area as well as millions of bloggers as well. It’s really nice to be surrounded by a community of empowering entrepreneurs, of which many of them are women as well. Lilac Clothing is a women’s clothing store that I recently discovered in this area, that I fell in love with! They’ve got pieces for maternity and non-maternity (really all stages of a women’s body) and they even show how a pregnant and non-pregnant woman can wear the same piece! It’s really great to have clothes that you can wear for before, during and after pregnancy, versatility is always key! Because a women can never have enough floral in their wardrobe, this floral top I’m wearing is one that I know I can wear for years and years. It’s got some beautiful colors in it and is the perfect piece for future pattern mixing as well. And these linen shorts are so perfect for HOT HOT 90 degree Summer days like we’ve been having as they are breathable and comfortable. If y’all haven’t checked out Lilac Clothing before, you should, they’ve got some great classic pieces that are great for mixing and matching!
