Tastemaker: Cassidy June

The O My Darlings blogger and mom of two shares her Mother’s Day wish list


Age: 29
Neighborhood: Scripps Ranch
Current Project: Creator of O My Darlings blog
Background: Cassidy started blogging after her first child was born. What began as a simple way to mark her daughter’s milestones for family and friends turned into a passion project with more than 22,000 fans on Instagram—and counting.
Fashion and design philosophy: “Always look for an excuse to dress up, but never underestimate the power of a good pair
of sweatpants.”
Personal Style: Feminine and breastfeeding-friendly

Her Favorite Things:

A Fox and The Sparrow mini photo shoot would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift. You’ll feel like a total babe, and have some beautiful images of you WITH your babes. Next San Diego session is scheduled for May 12. $575 for 30 minutes, thefoxandthesparrow.com

I was so excited when I discovered Chatbooks. They will turn your Instagram photos (or any photos) into beautiful little books with your captions included. $6 per book, chatbooks.com

These shoes are handmade in Los Angeles and even come in matching mama sizes. Zuzii kids oxfords in rose gold, $65, zuzii.com

This Rose Water Uplifting Spray is a must-have for any mama. It’s like a good cup of coffee without the caffeine and made from all natural, non-toxic ingredients. $32, beautycounter.com

Jen Ramos and husband Mat Rosa use the proceeds from her Cocoa and Hearts artwork toward their adoption process and dream of having a child, making her paintings all the more special. Prices vary, cocoaandhearts.com

This gold Moroccan wedding blanket is so rad, I would hang it on the wall like a tapestry or drape it over the back of a couch. The DIM wedding blanket, $775, dropitmodern.com

Everything from Suite One Studio is handmade by owner Lindsay Emery. I’m slowly building up a collection for those non-paper plate special occasions. Gold brushstroke bowls, $46 for a set of two, suiteonestudio.com

Local artist Kelli Murray turned her beautiful artwork into a wearable kids line that I absolutely love. Rylee & Cru swan onesie, $39, ryleeandcru.myshopify.com
