Two weeks ago, we welcomed our 3rd boy, James Jason into our family and we could not be more in love with our sweet baby James. He is just so lovely and his big brothers think he is just the cutest! As we have gotten settled at home as a party of 5, I’ve been thankful for all the lovely gifts we have received and I wanted to share my favs.
Here are my favorite baby items!!! This amazingly soft blanket (from Twinkle Twinkle little one on Belmont & Damen)// this snuggly blanket // these Aden & Anais swaddles // …..my fav Infant car seat – Maxi cosi car seat (so many colors to choose from!!) // the Honest Co. set (perfect for new baby…..their diapers are so adorable too) // and last but not least, Monica +Andy clothing (so soft & sweet!) //
As for my favorite new mama lounge wear – refer to this Athleta focused post!

Happy Wednesday! Today, for 1 DAY ONLY, GAP has a HUGE SALE! Get up to 50% off everything, including denim! Plus, get an extra 50% off women’s & baby sale styles with code BIG50 & an extra 25% off the rest of your purchase with code EVENT at Gap.
I will be picking up uniforms for the boys, as well as other must stock up items like socks & undies! If you are in the market for a new denim jacket for yourself – grab this one (I bought it and love it! the price is so great….I do recommend sizing up on this) and grab these fray-hemmed jeans too – love them – such a steal!!!
And, for my PREGNANT friends, these items are MUSTS –> First, a MUST BUY is this GAP t-shirt dress. It’s double layered so it really smooths everything out. Bought a Medium in the Black and the Black & White at 30 weeks pregnant (they are non maternity). Love them. So comfy – stretchy & cute! I also LOVE these GAP comfy pants (I bought black & navy during my 1st trimester and am still wearing them now for lounging at home)….and these GAP maternity tanks are great! I bought 2 of these in Medium (in black) and seriously love them for lounging and working out. Grab all these items on super sale!!!!! xxx, Nikki
As part of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, the Adidas Superstars — which have made an amazing come back — are on sale! Love them! Please do pay attention to the sizing notes online, I had to size down a whole size. (If you aren’t a Nordstrom cardholder, you should be! Sale for non-card holders starts July 22nd).
Prices $35- $59 depending on sizes (baby thru adult).
Each photo below will take you straight to the shoes!
MENS (below) GIRLS – ALL SIZES!!! (below – my FAVS)

Seriously obsessed with these! xxx, Nikki
Hope your week is off to a good start! I wanted to share some spring must buys! Nordstrom does a great job price-matching when items they are selling online are on sale on their competitor’s sites! Do not miss Nike @ 25% off – men’s and women’s, and kids too! (shoes & clothing through April 3, plus free shipping)!!!!
Next, you must pick up some of these t-shirts by Madewell – they are THE BEST (@$19.50)! I am currently wearing one as I type. Do size down, especially if you are between sizes. These tees are only $19.50…..so stock up on a couple colors!!!
And these boyfriend jeans (ankle length) are $88 – total steal + so cute!!!! Oh and grab this great military inspired jacket by TopShop before it sells out. I just ordered it….under $100 and again free shipping as always!!! Wear all 4 together for a great spring look!

Last month, I had an awesome Valentine’s Day Photo shoot with an amazing photographer, Margo Kuchuris (based in Chicago/ Chicago burbs)! The boys had a blast to say the least! (Contact Margo here)
Styling these guys is probably my favorite thing to do! Here are their outfit details: The gold hightops by Supra, were such a hit & were gifted from one of our favorite people in the world! For the lace up pair worn by my older son, click here and for the slip on (no-lace option) worn by my younger son, click here. The boys jeans were by Peek (check out this pair) – so cute! Next, click here for the black and white skull tie! Also, this is a great tie (on sale) and this bow tie is pretty awesome too.
Have a great week! xxx, Nikki
It’s official, today marks 2 years! I started Style Me Stratton one night in January 2014, without having any real idea how this whole blogging world works, but knowing that it would be a creative outlet for me . In 2 years, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t, how to keep my posts short & sweet for all you busy ladies and how to grow via affiliate marketing. I’ve been so lucky to partner with amazing retailers and most recently, join Threads Refined to add formalized personal styling to the list! Today, I am rounding up the most viewed posts and most popular items! Here’s what everyone liked:
These boyfriend jeans ($88/ run big order 2 sizes down) // This awesome fringe coat (now 50% off) // This beautiful ivory sweater! Also this one! // These Nike’s (they run true to size – I love them! they take about 20 min to break in) // These Stuart Weitzman booties (so many people bought these!) // This military coat (gorgeous) // These low ankle booties (so perfect) // These Sandals (so comfy) // This Bracelet (you’ll wear it daily) // These men’s sneakers // This pair of Warby Parker Sunglasses //
Makeup Favs: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette and YSL Touche Eclat //
