The Basic Essentials

Since becoming a Mom I have been trying to get a better handle on what has been absolutely indispensable in my life.

With everything from fashion to babes. In this round up I am going to do a run down of my basic essentials and why I feel I just can’t live without them and neither should you!

My Fashion Essential

Gucci Soho Small Leather Disco Bag

The black cross body bag, I know some of you might look at this and think well sure, I would love that black Gucci cross body, but its just not feasible right now. I have few responses to this; one, I bought this bag at a sample warehouse sale in New York City, so I feel you on that price tag. Two, I do have to say now that I have it, I would definitely save if I could to get it, because it is a pretty perfect bag for almost any occasion; work, coffee date or a night out! Lastly if you still just can’t get your head around that price point, never fear I have linked a super cute Kate Spade dupe from amazon below!

My Babe Essential

I am going back to the very beginning with what I found to be the most essential with Greyson and that was my Solly Baby Carrier. Above are images of my exact carrier, but let me tell you there are so many amazing prints and patterns. This carrier is a little more than the average wrap, but it is worth it. The fabric is light weight, which is mandatory where we live because it gets so hot here, and the fabric has this amazing stretch for a super snug fit for your babe. I have linked my exact wrap here, but definitely shop the whole site. Below is a more cost friendly version, that still has the same look and purpose.

The Beauty Essential

I feel I am at that age now where there is no hiding from the fact that I have to take care of my skin. First things first an amazing moisturizer with SPF in it, needs to be put on my face daily. One of my favorites is the Dew Skin from Beauty Counter. It has a light tint to it and makes my face look like its glowing. On the days when I am just running out the door to do errands I will put this on with some blush, mascara and lip balm. Below I have linked another great option at a lesser price point.
