I’m so excited to be launching a series of guest posts from some talented new contributors! The CWD team has hand picked fashion gurus, artists, party planners, photographers, crafters, and more to bring fresh content and new ideas for your life & style.
First up is my unbiased favorite – my sister, Courtney, who if you don’t know already has impeccable taste. From our days in matching Laura Ashley dresses, we have grown up with a shared love for all things feminine. I have admired her my whole life and am so grateful for the friendship we have. Since becoming a wife and mother, we have grown even closer sharing design ideas, swapping recipes, offering motherly advice, and collaborating on projects and parties for our families. She is an amazing cook, fabulous writer and selfless mother. She has been an incredible cheerleader and support to me from the first days of CWD graciously editing my websites and articles repeatedly over the years. I absolutely cannot wait for her line of dresses to come out next month and thrilled that she’ll be sharing some of her style secrets regularly on the blog.
I am blessed to be a mother, sister, daughter and wife. There is nothing that brings me more joy than raising my five children. While being a stay-at-home mom is my career, I have always had an affinity for fashion and style. It has been perfectly said “fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it.” I am inspired by the classic grace of Jacqueline Kennedy’s wardrobe and the simple beauty of Audrey Hepburn in her little black dress. I love to window shop in Valentino and Prada. Unfortunately I have a very hard time finding off-the-rack dresses that work with my lifestyle. So for the past few years I have been altering, designing, and dreaming of my own dresses. With the encouragement of my darling family, I am launching my dress line, courtneykate next month! My goal is to design modest timeless dresses for women I love. You can find more information on courtney-kate.com or follow my Instagram @courtneykate. I’m so excited to be a style contributor on Caitlin’s blog! – Courtney Zwick

This darling video made it’s way into our inbox and we couldn’t help but share. Heidi + Heather are twin sisters who wrote the children’s book Fairy Birds. They made this video to go along with the book and included a few of our pillows! My dear friend Nicole Davis of me oh my and her beautiful children are the stars of the show and I cannot get enough of it!
Our Teal Arrows pillow was featured in the November issue of Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine! We love the way they styled it in a soft and cozy nursery. Head over here to see the full spread (starts on page 70).
