Matching Mommy & Daughter Tutu's









I loved dressing Lorelai up in this adorable little tutu, to match me! She was so excited to wear it and be "princesses together"! haha Lorelai and I don't actually have as many twin outfits as I thought we would, when I was pregnant with her. When I found out I was having a girl, this kind of photoshoot was one of my very first thoughts. I could just imagine dressing alike and looking adorable at every chance we got! And, even though life is kinda not quite like a photoshoot with matching tutu's all the time, I'm so grateful I get to do this kind of thing with her... It's still a dream come true! She's pretty girly, and she loves getting dressed up, and I will enjoy that as long as it happens! 

Shop The Post:



Speaking of life not always being a photoshoot... Today, I wanted to talk about something a bit different than my clothes. I've been struggling with anxiety for a little over a year, now, and as I've opened up about my feelings to different people, I get the sense that I'm totally not alone in these feelings I have. Being a Mom is stressful, you guys. Being a Mom in 2019, specifically, is overwhelming. When I think of all the things I want to accomplish in the day, and all the directions I feel like I'm being pulled, sometimes I just feel like I can't handle it all. And, I'm not complaining. I realize that I'm beyond blessed. My life is not perfect, but I do have a loving husband who provides amply for us. I have two beautiful children who I love dearly, and I get to do this whole fashion blogging thing, and have more clothes than I would honestly ever ever need. But, anxiety doesn't discriminate. Anxiety doesn't care how happy you're supposed to be. You can have those feelings right in the middle of a joyful moment with your family. Anyway, I've just been struggling with my anxiety an extra bit, lately, and I wanted to share in case you're also struggling with anything like this. I've been working to form healthy habits, and trying different things to help myself cope with my anxiety, and I'll be sure to share if I find things that help. Let me know if you also struggle with any area of your mental health - I'd love to hear your experience or any ways that you cope! Thanks for letting me share with you guys. I really appreciate you and the community we have here!

  3. Completely in love with this matching tutus! Love this photos! I have anxiety all the time with my kids. They are older but the anxiety of raising a family never leaves. I got involved in a mom's group where we shared our struggles which really helped. We offered each other comfort. Maybe you can get find something like this in your area? Praying for peace in your heart Jessica. XO

  4. Omg this Mommy & Me tutu outfit is so adorable!! I'm so sorry girl you are going through anxiety. I struggle with it too. I do seek help about it. But one think I have learned through therapy is that anxiety is part of life. For some reason I got comfort from hearing that. But I'll be thinking of you and take care girl!

  10. These are absolutely beautiful photos and thank you for sharing your struggles with us. Anxiety is something I struggle with as well and I know that it's not logical, like you said, so is really hard to beat.
