Swing Thing

The park is quickly becoming one of our favourite places! We take the bus to work quite often and no matter the route we take home, there is always a park that we walk by! With the longer and warmer Summer days, it's hard to pass up stopping to let Hazel explore and play. On our days off as well we find ourselves here, there are at least 5 parks within a very short walking distance from our home, the perk of having no backyard I guess ;) I was introduced to my new faaaaavourite and genius accessory created by our friend Melissa that I think every new mama needs!

I've tried out the swing with Hazel a few times and she loves it for a few minutes but then is a bit uncomfortable and I can't push her very high because she's just a bit too small! I've tried wedging a few blankets but it's a liitttle bit unpractical to carry those around! This amazing little Swing Thing allows her to be strapped in comfortably, and she can swing as high as her little adventurous heart pleases. The first time I used it she sat for a good 20 minutes, and even then wasn't begging to be "all done." (baby sign language is changing my life!) it's comfy, cozy and has just the perfect amount of padding so it's not bulky but just perfectly snug. 

It's super easy to use, and folds up small which is great because I don't like lugging around too many unnecessary things! I can throw it in my bag and am happy to have it with me for spontaneous park outings with my girl.  I have the adorable fox pattern which is all sold out at the moment but there are a few other cute patterns to choose from! 

Shop Swing Thing here, so good for Summer, and makes an amazing fun shower gift!

Summer clothes! I always go through a really weird phase of transitioning from my winter wardrobe over to Summer, because I seem to wear my winter clothes for most of the Spring. The transition always seems to be extreme considering our weather jumps back and forth so frequently - it's hard to plan! 

Also for some reason, I really struggle with buying tank tops! I found this tank at Community Vintage in Gastown, and have been loving their clothes! Does anyone have a place they go to for go-to tanks?? 

I have been wanting to buy skirts for summer, but every time I do I regret it. Mainly because I end up wanting to ride my bike somewhere, or it ends up being super windy, or I'm on my hands and knees chasing Hazel. CUE skort! Also, cue the 90s? I'm in love with this skort from Scotch & Soda, and I don't think I have owned a skort since elementary school, or spring uniform at my private school. I am totally loving it though!
