Challenge Accepted!

Happy Monday! People don’t say that enough. Everyone gets all sad and cranky over Monday’s, but they’re not so bad. Just start doing something on Monday you look forward to, like my yoga class, and boom! All of the sudden the red headed step child of the week ain’t so bad. Anyway, pardon my rant. Let’s get down to business. I’m on a kick with wearing maternity clothes when I’m not pregnant. I’ve always said invest in your maternity clothes because they last and they can be versatile. Case and point.

Throughout the next few weeks you will see some pieces mixed into my wardrobe that were maternity that I’m still happy to wear now! It’s such a wonderful thing to be able to buy items that are maternity that don’t end there since you don’t really get to wear them that long. I wore this dress the day I went into labor with Kennedy, believe it or not. Check out how I styled it while pregnant here. Looking back at those pictures are crazy! Kind of miss that bump!

Isn’t the jewelry stunning? It’s actually bridal jewelry! I first found these pieces when I had the pleasure of visiting the Roman & Sunstone showroom last year. The whole collection was jaw dropping but these in particular really caught my eye. My wedding had already come and gone before I found these, but that’s kind of why I love them. They are so wearable for everyday too! So take a tip from me, brides-to-be, when shopping for jewelry for your big day, look for something that’s classic yet versatile at the same time, especially if you’re going to invest an arm & a leg for them!

This has been the most amazing August in terms of weather. I’m a little concerned that with how cool it has been that we’re going to have a brutal winter, but for now I’m just going to enjoy it while it lasts. Also, thanks so much to everyone who followed along last week for the Small Screen Style collaboration! I don’t want to blow anything, but we may just have some more fun stuff up our sleeves for the future… ;] Check in with me on Twitter to see if you’re the big winner!

And without any further delay, a special thank you to Lindsay & Skyla of for nominating me for the Ice Bucket Challenge! While it’s a blast to watch all the creative ways everyone can drop a bucket of ice cold water on their heads, remember, it’s for a good cause! Stop getting annoyed with the videos and do your part. Be good people!
