Life Lately // Instagram Round Up

Happy Sunday loves! Sorry for lagging on the posts this week but my best friend of a million years flew in town this week and we’ve been on the go go go with the little ones! Here’s all kind of randomness via the camera roll lately…
If you follow me on instagram you saw that I took Ava for a little day date to Disneyland this week.

I feel like juggling the two kiddos is TOUGH and sometimes you’re just trying to get through the day and keep everyone happy and healthy. I try my best but sometimes feel guilty that i’m not giving enough one on one attention to Ava. I’m trying to make of an effort to have more of that one on one time with her and this trip without her little brother being catered too 😉 was much needed!
This age at Disneyland was SO much more fun! We loved the teacups, Dumbo ride and of course she always loves playing at Toon Town and seeing all her favorite disney characters in real life. I keep wanting to take her to the California Adventure side but heard mixed reviews on if its good for the 3.5 age group? I’d love to hear from my seasoned Disneyland / California Adventure mamas on any tips! When I took Ava to Disneyland last year she was a little scared in “Its a Small World” and definitely scared in Pirates of The Carribean ride (amtuer mom move lol) So any tips on rides to skip and spots to check out for our next time would be awesome! 

and yes we are going through a heat wave in SoCal right now ;( So cut offs and and comfy sneaks were VERY necessary!

Shorts // Top // Flannel (more budget friendly HERE) // Sneaks (similar HERE) // Sunnies // Umbrella Stroller
for those of you looking for an umbrella stroller we’ve been using THIS ONE for years! It’s so light weight and great quality. Now I’m on the hunt for a double umbrella stroller and am open to any suggestions if you mamas have one you love! 
My favorite girls in the whole world! This is my BFF since I was 12! 

SO in love with this little lady!
Did I mention I’m OBSESSED with THESE BOOTS?! So comfy and perfect for Fall! A lot of you asked on instagram about this polish and its Mink Muffs by Essie.
Top (i’m wearing the XS) More sizes HERE  (also have THIS great basic from Free People) // Skinny Jeans // Boots (also available in Black and Chestnut)
I’ve worn this outfit a couple times in the last few weeks 😉 I adore this flowy top and these skinnies are classic, super comfy and the perfect fit and wash!
How fun is this top and these low chunky heels are great for walking all day in.
I posted this pic on instagram and love this Breathe Easy Rub from The Honest Company. My little guy had a cold a couple weeks ago and I put this breathe easy rub under his nose and on his chest to help with this stuffiness. It’s similar to Vicks Vapor rub but much gentler. Ava refuses to let me put Vicks on her but is down with this! So I definitely recommend it for cold season coming up if you don’t have it already.
My little bat babe! Shared some snaps on Snapchat (Andee Layne). This little lady is WAY ready for Halloween! 
Had to gave a Halloween Cupcake Baking and Decorating sesh! These adorable vampire gummies and cupcake wrappers are from Target.
LOVE THIS TOP! It’s flowy and has the same lace/crochet detail on the end of the sleeves as well! Also loving my new lip color! (This LIPSTICK and LINER in 1993.)
Refueling after a serious Target Session 😉 (Her Sneaks // My Sneaks)
and lastly cant get enough of THESE SNEAKS! Limited sizes left so here are few others I’m currently loving…. ONE // TWO // THREE // FOUR // FIVE // and SIX

Hope you ladies enjoy the rest of your weekend! We’re supposed to go Pumpkin Patching today but may have to bag it and go to the pool instead because of this heat!

  1. Love these posts! What size did you order in the skinny jeans? Also, what lip color are you wearing in the picture of you and your bff and your daughter?

  2. I enjoy reading your blog thanks for sharing. I wanted to let you know I do have the city select jogger stroller for two but I needed a quick easy umbrella stroller as well. I recently purchased one and I absolutely love it. It doesn't take up the whole trunk space and its quick to set up and take down. I live in AZ and when it's 100 degrees I can't deal with a stroller that has attachments for in and out of the car. I do love having the bigger stroller for the sun shade so for longer walks or trips I still take the big one.
    Here is the umbrellas stroller link

  3. Hi Andee! Only you could make a day at Disneyland in 100 degree weather look so glamorous! We have been pass holders since my son was about a year old. I think your daughter would love Cal. Adventure! If you've never been there, it's definitely worth checking out. She would love The Little Mermaid ride, The Jellyfish, Zephyr, Monsters inc. (If she's familiar with the movie otherwise the monsters might scare her). You can dine at Ariel's grotto and meet all the princesses there! Love your blog, I'm a long time follower since before you had Ava. Xoxo

  4. Just wanted to comment on the double umbrella stroller request….Uppababy is coming out with a DOUBLE G-Luxe! 🙂 Due out this fall. All the great features of the G-Luxe in "G-Link" format 😉 Keep an eye out for it…

  5. Hey andee can you please do a post detailing your workout routine. I watch your snaps and would really love to know what you do in the gym. As a mama with a babe just 2 weeks older than luca it would really help getting some tips on what exactly to be doing in the gym. Thanks!

  6. I loved all the pictures of you and Ava at Disney–I can't wait to take my own little girl! Three more weeks to go before I actually meet her! Ha-ha. #37weekspregnant You make a great Mommy and I love reading/following your blog. 🙂
