Solly Baby was founded by Elle Rowley, mom of 2 and entrepreneur. She refers to Solly Baby as “our little family business” and even though Solly Baby has had great success, she’s stuck to a grass roots mission and handmade techniques to crafting her popular baby carriers. For every wrap sold, Solly Baby donates $1 to Every Mother Counts, an incredible organization working to improve maternal health around the world. There are so many baby carriers on the market today so differentiating them and finding the right one can take some research. While I was pregnant with Porter I got the Moby Wrap and the Ergo. I used the Ergo more than the Moby mostly because of how long it took to put the Moby on, but I honestly was super excited to use either because of how bulky they both were. I love these Solly Baby wraps because of how light weight the fabric is and all the color choices you get. I think I’d actually look forward to wearing one of these for reasons aside from an easy way to keep my baby close and my hands free. The fact that these wraps were made by a mom who was dissatisfied with other carriers on the market is very reassuring!

Above: Floral Suit

The tomboy in me avoids dressing up whenever possible. I’ve never been a huge fan of dresses or skirts and lean more towards a dress pant if and when it’s appropriate. I don’t think you have to be dressed up to be chic. Nothing says sophistication like a tailored well-fitting suit or dress pant. When it comes to wedding season, I cringe at the idea of having to put on another random dress that I’m going to feel uncomfortable in all night just for the sake of tradition. I think there are ways to be appropriate and look the part in a new, fresh way. So here are three unconventional wedding guest looks that are modern while still appropriate for the day.

When you think of weddings, florals and pastels probably come to mind. Florals are a perfect statement of femininity and grace. I love the pairing that with the masculine, tailored lines of a suit. A floral suit is a great option for a summer wedding. Whether you keep to the traditional pant suit, or air on the side of being etiquette sensitive, and opt for a skirt option, a floral suit is a fun, whimsical option to wear to your next wedding.

Jumpsuit

The jumpsuit is so hot right now and really taking the place of a dress from evening cocktail wear to day wear. It’s a great transitional piece from the office to night, so if you have an evening weekend wedding it’s a great option to transition into the night.

White

The age old etiquette book says no white at weddings. And I tend to still stick to this rule, but if you just can’t help yourself, a white trouser is a great option. I would stay away from anything that looks bridal like a full dress, lace or beading. Paired with a color or pattern this is a subtle way to wear white while not taking the chance of being offensive to the bride.

Summer sandals that actually stay on our little kiddos’ feet can be a hard thing to find. Even with Jet being as small as he is and not walking yet, I still love a pair of sandals to complete his outfits. Here are a few of my favorites that are both cute and practical.
