I can’t believe we’ll be closing out the year in just a few days. I’m soaking up the last few days of the year keeping cozy and comfy. Dark neutrals have been my go-to all week, and I’m sure the remainder of the week won’t be any different. I’ll be ringing in the new year in PJs and warm throw from the comforts of my home, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. What are you plans for rest of 2016?

Diaper bag packing essentials

mom life, sponsored comment

Diaper bag packing essentials | www.shoppingmycloset.com

My baby just turned one and I remember trying to pack everything under the sun into his diaper bag when he was first born. Now, I’ve been able to narrow it down to the essentials and share with you what’s in my diaper bag.

(1) Purse / diaper bag: the obvious essential product. I opted for an all-black bag since it goes with anything! Additionally, having the ability to convert it from a tote to a messenger-style allows for more hands-free shopping

(2) Diapers: Another essential: extra diapers when we’re away from the house for a few hours

(3) Changing pad: Not all public restrooms have a changing pad so we’ve had to devise our own station. These are essential to keep him clean and protect from dirt and grime.

(4) Hand sanitizer: A must have for us, especially during the cold and flu season.

(5) Snacks: my son loves eating so I always pack him some healthy finger foods that will keep him satiated.

(6) Book: we always have a book from this list with us. He loves flipping pages and looking at the illustrations!

(7) Music: if my son is getting fussy or bored, talking doesn’t always calm him down. But, the minute we put on some music, he’s mesmerized and forgets what was bothering him before! Having a happy baby is key!

Only three more days until Christmas! I can’t believe how this holiday sneaked up on me. I just finished shopping and now have a bunch of gifts to wrap and deliver. This look was the perfect outfit to do all my last minute shopping – with the number of people out in the malls, I opted for something that was comfy and practical. With the cold (California-cold :p) weather we’ve had lately, bundling up was also a must. This sweater adds just the right amount to a festive holiday look, especially with the pleated hem and unexpected open back (sadly it’s sold out online, but this one is practically the same one and comes in 2 colors!). For the holiday dinner, I’ll be switching out my jeans for a holiday-ready skirt and some fleece-lined tights. Hope everyone has a happy holiday season!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter my gift card giveaways to Kate Spade and Tory Burch (2 chances to win!)


SHOP THE LOOK:

Pleated hem sweater with open back – Chelsea28 {practically the same sweater here} (similar here {cardigan version} & here)

Grey coat – Theory (similar here & here)

Black jeans – J.Crew (similar here {40% off!} & here)

Laser cut nude heel – Valentino (similar here & here)
