Two weeks from today our fall collection is launching and I'm totally anxious with anticipation! Mark those calendars for 8.31 at 10 am CST!
This week my sweet friend @kriswcampbell shared a quote by Mother Teresa that just really spoke to me. "The way you help heal the world is you start with your own family". Sometimes I feel like I just can't digest the cruelty of the world and wonder how I can keep my children beautiful and innocent without keeping them in a bubble of ignorance, so they'll know to love everyone for who they are. St
Pretty sure she's going to skip crawling and just start standing up 🙈😭 Another day, another plank for Isa! Also, I can't tell you how happy it makes me to put this little Texas babe in a sweater! #babyyogi #willowcrownsinmaine
Living that lake life and loving every minute 🌲💦 #willowcrownsinmaine
Just wrapped our annual Maine family photos and I cannot wait to see how they came out...despite a crying baby and a spastic four year old 😂 Also pretty excited about these five new bows (also coming as clips) launching on 8/31! What's your favorite?!
Working isn't really working if you're doing it in pjs, outside in 65 degree weather, while the baby naps and big sister plays at Gigi's 🙌🏻 #willowcrownsinmaine
Spent the morning in the place where our family began. Ryan and I moved into student housing two days after our honeymoon and ate Chinese on our wedding plates with moving boxes as a table. We brought Olivia home from the hospital here, made our biggest life decisions, and learned so much. Bringing our girls here was such a walk down memory lane and the perfect start to our vacation ❤️
A little throwback to three summers ago in #Maine. So, so excited to be on our way back as a family of four for TEN blissful vacation days 🌲 I am so ready for some cool temps, lobster rolls, family time, and a whole lot of relaxing. ✌🏻, Houston!
I am downright giddy to release our fall collection on 8/31....and that's 90% because of solid. navy. bows. 😍 // 📷 @snapshotsandmythoughts
Currently living my best life in the @chickfila drive thru (#momlife ) and thinking how wonderful two napping kiddos would be this afternoon 😂 Absolutely love this capture of our silver Isla headband from @heidicalma ! // restocked in all sizes
Just popping in to let you know the shop is restocked (laces and classics) and it's the last restock til I get home from vacation on the 22nd! Speaking of vacation, what are your favorite baby carriers when traveling? I haven't flown with Isa since she became so squirmy and I barely remember flying with Olivia (I think I blocked it out), so let me know what you love!
A year ago this sweet babe was rocking a gold Laurel for her newborn photos and now she's ONE! Looking precious in her Olivia headband and I'm obsessed! 📷: @bumpsbabesandbellinis
Oh so excited to give you the first look at our upcoming fall collection! I am SO jazzed about this collection, guys. It's going to be so fun 🍁 Launching 8/31, mark those calendars!
Some sunshine and a cupcake would go a long way towards redeeming this rainy week! Seriously...a week of rain during August is the nightmare of stay at home moms, right? 😂 #littlemissisla and her perfect topknot are cheering me up though (and her bow and all other solids are marked down to $5 right now)!
Holy freaking Monday! It's been a long one and it's not over yet 🌛Hustling in the studio tonight to get orders shipped and items restocked! These (willow) crown bows are in the shop in super limited quantities 👑📷: @snapshotsandmythoughts
I was chatting with our awesome pedi today about #willowcrowns and how it started...and it basically boils down to the fact that I only make bald babies 😂 I was so tired of people telling me what a handsome little boy Olivia was, so I started making her bows and the rest is history! // Isa's wearing the first lace headband we ever made, the Olivia. Also, if you told me six months ago that a trip t
Floral bows, crown bows, and new heart quads are live on the site! For bows, just select clip or headband from the drop down menu! 😘
This is me, completely wrung out and exhausted from watching #got7 . Seriously, how intense?! Sleep tight, friends! // Charlotte headband 📷: @ashtontackett
Happy Sunday, friends! Tomorrow the site will be live with new items from our PBK pop up and in just under three weeks our massive fall collection is arriving! This means I've got to make some space in the studio, so I've marked all remaining summer and solid items to $5 flat! Hope you're having a fabulous weekend 😘
Thank you SO much to everyone who came out to support #willowcrowns today! It meant so much to me and I had the best time. All new items will be on the site Monday for those of you who aren't local 😘
Just about ready for our pop up shop at @pbk_highlandvillage this afternoon! I just have to play a little jenga to get everything in my car and I'll be good to go 😂 Hope to see you local ladies between 2-4! 😘
I unplugged from social media for most of the day to spend time with hubby for his birthday and to dote on a sweet babe with the worst diaper rash 😭 While the circumstances weren't all ideal, a little break for the day felt good! Now I'm so excited to see you local ladies tomorrow from 2-4 at Pottery Barn Kids in Highland Village!
Injecting a little color into your Friday morning! Miss Milly is rocking our new crown bow which will be debuting at our pop up shop with @pbk_highlandvillage tomorrow!! I'm so excited to meet you and your little ones from 2-4 tomorrow and to get them stocked with some new #willowcrowns ! 📷: @snapshotsandmythoughts
So so much love for these two girls and how they love each other ❤️👯I used to worry their age difference would be too big, but moments like this just erase that doubt.
Today's been sort of a mix of everything...cleaning, time in the studio, and apparently walking around with baby 💩 on my shorts 🙄 Starting to feel a *little* bit of pressure to get things done with our PBK pop up in a couple days and then a ten day vacation to prep for. Yes...Ten. Days. Can't wait for some much needed time off with my whole family in Maine ❤️
My sweet friend's daughter is getting me super excited for our Disney trip this November! What are your favorite things to do at Disney? I don't think I'll ever get over the Magic Kingdom 😍 // gold Laurel lace headband restocked in all sizes! 📷: @jmmiller2008
If I'm being honest, I have the hardest time not snapping up every watercolor fabric I lay eyes on. So excited to debut these at our PBK pop up this Saturday (click the link in profile for details!) and then they'll be on the site for all you lovelies on Monday!
Mom's nights out are never easy to make happen. You've got to make sure hubby will be home in time, make sure you remember to shower, try to get the kiddos situated and not crying before you go, struggle with a strapless bra, and then your four year old hits you with : "the pants and shoes are okay but that shirt is a double disaster" 😳 #saywhat #willowcrownsathome
Still not crawling but planking all day every day 😂 #babyyogi #sixmonths
My mind is bursting at the seams with ideas and to-do lists this morning (#sendcoffee ) but at least our pop up shop with @pbk_highlandvillage is nearly ready to go! Now I can move on to pressing issues like what the heck am I going to wear?! If you're local, click the link in profile to check out the event details so I can see you all this Saturday!!
Only a few minutes stand between me and sleep 🙌🏻 I'm trying to do better about hitting the hay early since I'm an early riser (it's my best way to get stuff done ). Any other early birds out there?! 📷: @ashley_youngs / gold Isla headband
Making pretty messes in the studio this week....our busy season is about to kick off and I'm so excited! Our PBK pop up is this Saturday and then it will be time to launch our fall collection, followed by autumn solids, and then we roll right into holidays. So crazy! #lifeinretail
How about a little newborn sweetness to kick off your week? The gold Laurel is my go to recommendation for newborn photos...Isa wore it in hers, though she's never had this much hair and probably won't for quite some time 😂 📷: @chelseabrosh
Girlfriend just does planks and tries to crawl all. day. long. 😂 Had the best weekend with my people and am so ready to settle in with some pizza from the grill and a little #got7 ❄️
Three of my favorite things this Sunday afternoon...fresh flowers, sweet laces for our newest stockist, and the lyrics to one of my favorite songs. I listened to it every day when I was pregnant with our little rainbow babe and she still quiets down every time she hears it ❤️ #yoursong #rainbowbaby
Stealing this photo from the hair wizard herself, @melanniemillan 💇🏼 We've chopped 10" off my hair since January and I don't miss a single inch 😱 Feeling like a brand new person with better hair (isn't that crazy how that works?! ). Getting back to feeling like myself post baby has been an adventure but it feels good to feel good ❤️ #shorthairdontcare
Always spying on the sleeping babe 💕 Today Olivia said she didn't want Isabel to nap because she's her best friend and she would miss her. Apparently after two months of completely ignoring her, followed by three months of pretty rough emotional regression, comes love? Thank goodness 😂😍🙏🏻
Happy Friday, friends!! Had a total luxury day today...mimosa play date to start and an afternoon solo to get a much needed trim and color 💇🏼 So ready for an early night in, snuggling my girls, and catching up with hubby. Hope you had a great one 😘😘 // lime bow clip via @msoliviamariej
Serious question: how have I been in business almost four years and I'm just now making bows with actual crowns on them?! I'm calling this the "Always Wear Your Willow Crowns" bow and it will debut at our PBK pop up at @pbk_highlandvillage next Saturday! Think we should list it on the site as well?!
Olivia's hair is pretty representative of how I felt today 😂 Frazzled, messy, out of sorts, and kind of a joke 🤷🏼♀️I'm grateful for sweet friends and their time and texts for keeping things light and to my girls for being little angels today and taking it easy on me!
