. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Baby's initials

January 28, 2016

Baby's initials

 top: target (non maternity)  leggings: old navy  boots: just fab   initial necklace: c/o stella & dot  
leaf necklace: charming charlie

My sister and one of my best friends threw me a baby sprinkle last weekend and this is what I wore. Except that I ended up putting on jeans right before I left.  Probably unnecessary.  I just bought this top at Target.  It was $27 which is more than I usually spend on a shirt but I loved it.  Plus it is non-maternity and I know I'll wear it plenty after baby.  

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Christine, who sells Stella and Dot pieces.  I've seen and heard plenty about the company, but have never owned anything from them.  I was super excited when she said she'd like me to review something from her site.  I immediately looked at the personalized pieces.  I don't usually spend much on jewelry (the leaf necklace I'm wearing was $6), unless it's personalized or meaningful.  I can't tell you how many things I bought with an A on it or with Addilyn's birthday on it after she was born.  And I love them.  They are small, easy to wear with everything and they make me really happy.  

And this necklace is exactly that.  Small, pretty, goes with anything and meaningful.  I may have cried when I got it in the mall because it not only has an A on it, but an I, which is our baby boy's first initial.  Naming a baby is a ton of pressure and I still can't tell you I'm 100% sure until I see his sweet face, but we love the name and can't imagine changing it at this point.  (I know it's annoying when people are hush, hush on their baby's names but I figure we're close enough to him being here I'll wait, except for the I!)  I've worn it almost everyday since I got it and I love that it has both my baby's initials on it.  


If you've never heard of Stella and Dot, they have tons of jewelry pieces.  Statement necklaces, bracelets, watches and lots of other personalized jewelry.  I loved this disc necklace too and it would've been my next choice!  The necklace I got would be an awesome present to tell your husband to buy you for Valentine's or perfect for Mother's Day.  Their pieces ship super fast and come packaged so cutely!


Christine was so sweet to work with and she is generously giving away one of the necklaces that I picked.  The giveaway will be on instagram tomorrow morning so make sure to enter!  And feel free to check out more of her pieces here.
Thank you so much Christine!  This is definitely my new favorite piece of jewelry and I know I will wear it all the time!

I love Stella & Dot jewelry and my all-time favorite pieces are the monogrammed ones! I started wearing Layla's monogram before she was born too! (I just hoped I wouldn't change my mind on her name!)

I have a necklace and bracelet with my kid's birthstones. They are my favorite pieces of jewelry. We kept our kids names secret until they were born too.

That is SO pretty!!! :) I love their jewelry but have never purchased anything for myself from there. I hope to get something with my baby's initial(s) on it eventually- once we pick a name hehe!

I don't at all think it's annoying when people don't want to share their baby's name. But then again I didn't tell anyone, so it's probably good I don't find myself annoying. Ha! That's an I, right? The only name I'm even coming up with that starts with I is Ian... Which would be a great name! I have been wanting to get something with an R on it but haven't found the right thing yet. Love the necklace!

So I just googled "boys names that start with I" because I was curious about what names I was missing. Just please don't name your child Iggy. I will judge you.

Aww that necklace is lovely! I have a necklace with my son's initial on it and I adore it so much, I can't wait to get another when my second is born (we are still unsure on a name until baby's born!).

I love your printed top too - it looks so nice with the gold necklaces.

So sweet. I have a necklace with Aiden's name on it that I wear every single day. When the next one comes along I'll have to do some layering. ;) And yay for the A names. We are all A's so I think we have to continue the tradition or the other kids will feel left out. Haha.
