ivyscoutforsupayana-7 ivyscoutforsupayana-8 ivyscoutforsupayana-10 ivyscoutforsupayana-16I’ve been a long time Supayana fan, dating back to 2011 with the release of her Space Cat Legging that I had to have (thanks to James of Bleubird, of course). So when she contacted me about sending Ivy a few pieces of her new Spring/Summer collection, I was thrilled! You can see the strawberry dress in our strawberry fields post, and the poppy dress right here. I have always had a special place in my heart for Etsy sellers that are still sewing by hand, piece by piece. The quality of the fabric is amazing and the items are just so fun!

Supayana is a women’s and baby/kids clothing line designed by Yana Gorbulsky. Yana’s unique designs feature digitally printed fabric with illustrations from Montreal based artists. All of the pieces are sewn by Yana herself or an assistant seamstress so it’s a small shop and the designs are all made in limited supply. She just released her new line yesterday, and you can see more on her Instagram!

A fun thing for kiddos to look forward to!

Sign your favorite kiddos up to get two pairs of funky fresh socks in the mail every month for just $11!

Fall Fashion Picks

Something about not needing to wear cut-offs and v-necks every day makes this season so welcomed. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of cut-off shorts, but I miss denim and not needing to shave my legs every other day, ha! I tend to buy a lot of basics that can transfer between seasons effortlessly without being too on-trend, stretching my wardrobe and budget that much further. I’m also notorious for having the same piece of clothing for three to five years, some even since high school, and I think that has a lot to do with staying with a more neutral palate. Here is what I’m loving–

Fall Tops

I think a couple of plaid button downs (easy access to nursing Ivy if she’s in a carrier), a graphic tee, comfy sweatshirt, and a couple blouses that can go from day to night are all I’m really needing this season.

 Fall coat + dresses

To be honest, I don’t even own a coat, but I think it would look a little something like this if I did! I’ve worn the same army green anorak jacket, that I bought in the men’s department at h&m, since I was pregnant it Grey… it was the only jacket I could find to fit a growing pregnancy bump. Ace & Jig just knows textiles, I’ll be living in this duster all season and think this dress would be a nice addition. Buffalo plaid, need I say more? I have three tops in my closet with this print but I’m trying to wear dresses more often since they’re so easy!

Fall hats + pants

I had the perfect black hat, but Seb threw up on it (yay lactose intolerance). Replacing it with this one was a good idea. My Leader Bag is so, so perfect for fall (waterproof canvas), and the best part is the diaper clutch that I can take out at night with me for date night. A good beanie to hide frizzy hair due to morning fog is always a plus. You can’t beat the price of these skinnies, thinking a matte legging will be perfect with flannels this fall, and I live in these jeans.

Fall shoes

Shoes, my weakness! And since my foot grew to an obscene number while I was pregnant with Ivy (shout out to my size 10.5/11 club), I’ve been slowly restocking my shoe department. These clogs are so great for slightly dressing up a casual look while still being comfortable. I’m a sucker for leopard and ankle booties, so naturally these couldn’t be better. A pair of nude flats, they go with everything! I see fewer people wearing flats, but they’ll always be my go-to “mom” shoe. These sneakers, the color and comfort are a win-win. Loving the d’orsay trend. And I am wearing these when my kids do… yes, all four of us are matching. I’m cheesy like that.
