I just ordered the personalized School Years Journal ($39.99) from MyChronicleBooks so I can better record each school year of Chloe's. The book goes from Kindergarten all the way up to 12th grade.

The cutest thing will be seeing how her signature changes over the years! Get 35% off any order from MyChronicleBooks with the code FRIENDS at checkout at MyChronicle... Continue reading

Here are more of my favorites from the Isabella Oliver Pre-Fall collection: Atherton Maternity Tunic ($115) Harris Maternity Cardigan ($145) Allerton... Continue reading
