Googoogabgab Obsession ~ Freshly Picked Moccasins

The weather has dipped below 70 today, and it’s the beginning of August, which only means one thing: I’ve got fall fashion on the brain. Now that Maxi is a year older, and a year wiser, the concept of not taking off his shoes and throwing them into the middle of traffic has finally set in. A celebratory time for me of course, because I can finally put him in shoes that I don’t have to duck tape to his feet and can finally get him into my most coveted pair for fall, the Freshly Picked Moccasins!

They’re comfy, they’re stylish, they’re oh so durable, and they come in the most beautiful colors and clever prints I’ve ever seen. What I truly love about Freshly Picked is that it’s a small company started by one hot mama, Susan Petersen. Unsatisfied by the selection of well-crafted kid’s shoes, she decided to design her own and start a business from scratch. As the company has grown, so have the evolution of the mocc’s designs; each time perfecting their comfort, their fit, their fun design and most importantly, every mama’s dream, that they stay on the kiddo’s feet.

Susan’s moccasins have been featured in US Weekly, Parenting Magazine, the Kardashian Shows and countless blogs.

There may be a month left of summer (tear), but these moccasins have given me one reason to look forward to the crisper days of fall. Check out the cuteness that is Freshly Picked…

Googoogabgab Obsession ~ Maya Brenner Necklaces

My current obsession these days are the Maya Brenner asymmetrical mini letter necklaces… I don’t know what it is, perhaps just L.O.V. E. at first sight. I’ve had a few initial necklaces in my day, ones with my own initials and one custom made as a push gift with diamonds with the initials of my first born, LLG which I wear almost every day.

What I love about the design of these necklaces is that they’re so demure, so unassuming, so dainty and sweet, and whether you’re in the market for a personal logo, or one for your newborn babe, or even (what I’m really loving), the first initial of all of your kiddos, it’s the perfect size to pair with almost any other neck candy under the stars.

They come in white, yellow and rose gold and you can add any amount of letters to the chain you want… I have so many versions I’d make of this necklace (LLG, MPG, JMG, LM, LOVE), it’s hard to choose… maybe I’ll resurrect the Mr. T look… only much more demure of course.

You can find them here:
