Dressing the Babe / Mama and Me Style

The bougainvilleas are in crazy, beautiful overdrive right now in LA. And, when they fall to the ground and dry up, they turn into these tissue-paper like pieces that make for endless hours of crunching under your toes and tossing in the air like confetti with your mini me…


I love a good shirt dress (ahem, it's nursing-friendly, too…), and there's something about the buttons that make it feel casual and not-too-fussy.

I've been wearing a ton of dresses lately, and Ruby always likes wearing dresses and skirts, so these Jockey Skimmies have been coming in hand for both of us to make sure we don't show off too much should the wind catch up with us! They're basically like shorts mixed with undies so I don't have to wear an extra slip and Ruby doesn't have to wear shorts under her skirt.

Ruby is now obsessed with bougainvilleas and loves pointing out all the different colors and varieties we spot in our neighborhood!

  1. Hi Joy, as a beginner blogger I’m noticing how other bloggers do sponsored posts and I just have to say that you do it THE BEST! Not only is your styling always on point, but you always seem to genuinely like the products. And most of all you make me really want to get the products! I’m definitely going to check out those Jockeys and also your fantastic dress! From your long-time fan, but first-time commenter: thanks for writing a awesome blog!

  2. Seriously, the best sponsored post ever. First of all, the styling is so cute and the reveal of the shorts was such a surprise! I was like – waaaaaiiitaminute what is that!! And secondly I am thrilled to find out about these shorts. I have been looking for something like this to solve the dreaded “thigh-rubbing” which can only get worse because I am pregnant and putting on weight. I haven’t been able to find underwear shorts that are not “control” underwear like Spanx. Good tip, thanks!

  3. Hey Elaine,
    Thanks so much for saying that! I try really hard to make sure it’s always a natural fit (no pun intended 😉

  4. did i mention dressing the babe is my favorite favorite favorite. you killed it, again! RUBY IS SO ADORBS!!! GGGGAAAAAAAAA!

  5. Hey Joy! I am from Los Angeles but currently studying abroad in Germany, and the photos in this post remind me of how California really is and how lucky I am to call it home 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  6. Beautiful clothes and even more beautiful pictures of you and Ruby. I also love a shirt dress, throw it on and you are good to go. I love your business tips videos, I have watched them all, I hope there is more inspiration on the way!!!

  7. Hey…. My little Zoe is obessed with bouganvillae too! She says the word so clearly it melts my heart. And it is surprising how many bouganvillae shrubs/bushes/trees there are in my city.

  8. Hey Emily!
    They are meant to be underwear so that you only have to wear one layer but if your skirt or dress lifts up, it’s got you covered 😉 They are so light and comfy!
