“True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.” – Brené Brown

April’s Book Club book is Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW. It’s about finding true belonging + self-worth, and I don’t know about you, but when I became a mom, those things became more important than ever. If you’re new to the #sollybabybookclub here’s what you need to know:
1) All you have to do to “join” is buy or borrow the book (or audiobook!) and read (or listen!) along.
2) We’ll share our favorite quotes + reflections from the book throughout the month and look forward to hearing yours, too.
So, are you in? Download our nifty book guide above to start the discussion and… let’s do this, mamas!

With how transient most families are these days, finding a community as a mother is more important than ever. What’s been especially helpful for me is to think about community in three categories: one, my lifelong girlfriends from all different stages of life, two, my local, neighborhood community, and three, my online community that is brought together by common interests or life experience.

The lifelong friends are so important because they keep me in check, I can talk about the deep stuff and the little stuff and we don’t have to have the logistics of life get in the way.

My local community makes life happen. The carpools, meals when you have a new baby, park days, and the life experience of all different kinds of people that may live around you. It’s so important in the development of children and actually gives us as adults a huge sense of belonging as well, whether we recognize that or not.

The last category of community, the online community, can be the most enriching for what can be a sometimes isolating experience as a mom. When blogs were really in the spotlight ten years ago when I had my first, it was like a whole new world opened up to me. Solly Baby never would have happened had I not felt the energy behind the internet.

Now that we have so many platforms for connection for moms, it can sometimes feel overwhelming. As an entrepreneur, I am especially grateful for more segmented groups (heymama is my favorite!) that can really help me feel connected with other moms in the creative and business space. Especially since, with four kids, I don’t go out as much as I used to.”

Solly Spring Style

March 19, 2018

The thing I love about our wraps (okay, one of the many things I love about them) is that they never feel like a sartorial afterthought. They’re part of the outfit- heck, half the time they make the outfit! To prove it we asked stylist Sydney Liann to put together 16 different looks using 6 wraps from our current collection. As you search below for your own mom style inspiration, I think you’ll agree: babies really are the best accessory. #sollyspringstyle / All photography by: Nicki Sebastian

“The important parenting work is done not only when we have serious, meaningful conversation with our kids, but just as often when we simply play with them, read to them, argue with them, joke with them, or just hang out together.” -The Yes Brain

March’s Book Club book is The Yes Brain. “The Yes Brain: a neurological state that helps children (and adults) approach the world with openness, resilience, empathy, and authenticity.” Yes please! This month’s pick offers just the right amount of research + realistic tools to help nurture your kids into the best version of themselves. The best part: You can apply the strategies to yourself, too! (Bc we could all use a little more “YES.”) Really excited to hear your thoughts on this one, mamas, so pick up a copy of the book or download the audio version, and read along with our downloadable guide below to discuss with your own book club.
