Put a Little Spring in Your Step!

After reviewing my blog posts these past couple of months I realized I needed more color in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I am 100% ok with an all black wardrobe, tres chic! BUT with warmer temps coming our way I did feel like I had to spice things up a bit with some color, and where better to start than your shoes!

I’ve finally invested in one of those “belly bands.” They’re like thick bands of stretchy fabric that you wear around your stomach over your pants. They’re basically made to help you be able to wear your non-maternity pants longer and they look as though you’re wearing “layers.” I never had one during my first pregnancy, but I was SO big I couldn’t wear many of my normal clothes anyway. This time around I fit in all of my regular pants in every way except for around the bump, obviously, so I bought one of those belly bands to be able to wear my jeans & such longer. What a good investment, too! I’m quite happy with it.

I’m so in love with these shoes! They’re springy and colorful and fun and, believe it or not, so comfortable! They were perfect for walking around the town on a gorgeous afternoon but dress up any outfit in seconds. I’m really excited to wear these well into the summer with a little white dress! 
IMG_2462 IMG_2481 IMG_2486 IMG_2497 IMG_2510Isn’t this top adorable too? I am just so in love with ASOS’s maternity line! So much color and youth! If you’re a young mom like me, there are few things worse than the expectation that people put on you to start dressing like a 50’s housewife. It’s even worse when you’re pregnant! Walking into Motherhood Maternity makes me angry sometimes, their options are just so…..drab. ASOS maternity is where it’s at! If you’re looking for some amazing maternity options for spring I most definitely suggest you browse their site, you won’t be disappointed!

Baby Fever!

This past weekend my mother-in-law hosted the most beautiful baby shower for my husband’s cousin, who is due next month! Also attending the shower was another cousin on his side who is due in July! You might say we have baby fever, ha. It was such a lovely afternoon, I love family get togethers, and even more so when there is an adorable theme, like babies!

I really love this necklace… It has become my go-to statement necklace. I love that it’s actually from their Bridal line. It proves that Bridal jewelry can really be the most versatile! The fact that you can wear it over and over makes spending any amount of money on it not seem so bad. However, I’ll let you in on a little secret… this bridal jewelry will not break your bank! Praise the wedding gods! IMG_0694 IMG_0698Words can’t express how happy I am that I found a well-lit area of the house to take pictures inside! It’s just too damn cold for me outside to take any pictures these days. Womp womp! I can’t wait for warm weather, I get giddy just thinking about! Anyway… here are a couple pictures from the shower itself!

Me, Heather, and Tara. The three of us are the expecting cousins! haha. ..It was Heather’s big day! She’s due next month. I can’t wait to meet her little nugget!! My husband’s side of the family is growing fast! So many babies.

image-11How cute are these?! For a “champagne” toast! My mother-in-law is a wizard of her craft! She even made little tea sandwiches that she cut with cookie cutters in the shapes of ducks, teddy bears, and baby bottles! I’m so sad I didn’t get a picture of those, they were too cute for words. So that’s all folks! I have a giveaway coming up for you guys soon, cause I just love ya so much! So keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, have a great Monday, it’s almost over!
