My Emoji Outfit

You know that saucy little red dancing girl emoji? When I wore this outfit I felt like the human version of her. Saucy and ready to dance! Nevermind the fact that I was quite literally ready to pop at any moment. I just wanna dance!

My bump is so huge now it’s almost comical compared to how small the rest of my body is. When I was pregnant with Charlotte my stomach looked absolutely absurd but it fit the rest of my body, ya know? This is just silly.

image-55 image-56 image-57I love the detail on this necklace! The little red roses remind of Alice in Wonderland and I swoon over the alternating gold and black chain. This is the perfect outfit to give you a little boost in confidence when you’re 39 & a half weeks pregnant, like I am here. No matter how small you are elsewhere, when you’re carrying around this much extra cargo in front, it starts to become a little…. depressing, ha. Dear feet, I’ll see you again soon. I miss you. Love, me. When you need a little pep in your day, do as I do, dress up! Wear what makes you feel good and go out and flaunt your bump. You’ll feel so much better.


Casual Days

This is probably the one and only time you will ever see my natural hair on this blog. I have been too lazy to keep up with it every day. And to be honest, it could probably use a decent break from all the torture I put it through to make it look even somewhat presentable. So here ya go, casual days with casual wear & casual hair.

There were a few days last week when it got a little cool and rainy out, but it still had that warm summer feel to it. I thoroughly enjoy days like that. Not when they’re all rainy, but like, a nice warm day with a little rain to give you a break from the heat and then it clears up again. You know what I mean? BUT anyway, this sweater, which I bought the last time I was pregnant, is perfect for days like that. I seriously love this sweater, I wish I could wear it always!

Soooo a little update here… I’m due SATURDAY!  Yep. 4 days. Anyone wanna place bets on when you think she’ll arrive, or how much she’ll weigh? haha! We actually did that with Charlotte. No one guessed her exact weight but two people came very close, it was kinda of fun. So if I go radio silent in the next few days, you guys will know where to find me! ;] Wish us luck!


That 70’s Post & a Pink Blush Maternity Giveaway!

I was recently approached by a company called Pink Blush Maternity to browse their collection as I am, obviously, very pregnant. I had never heard of their brand before and as I scrolled through their website I became giddy! I’m always complaining about the lack of affordable and stylish maternity clothes and I feel like I hit the jackpot with these guys! They have pretty much everything from sensible and basic every-day items, to colorful and fun eye catching pieces, to classics with a fun twist. There’s something for everyone, but more importantly, lots for me! I was instantly drawn to all of their colorful printed clothes since around here Spring is most definitely in the air!



My little boog was part of this shoot too! She is VERY into ‘modeling’ lately. Puts her hands on her hips and “poses.” It’s literally the cutest thing I’ve ever seen, ha. So expect to see a lot more of her on here. Maybe I’ll start blogging her outfits too! ;] Here she’s wearing a Target tunic, Baby GAP ‘jeggings’ and Oshkosh B’gosh slip ons. Oh and my hat.

So anyway, back to me here! I’m obsessed with this dress and as soon as it showed up I knew I was going to style it all 70’s like. Especially since it was 70 degrees out when I wore it! It just felt appropriate. The colors and pattern are beautiful, and it’s something so different for me. I’m constantly trying to push myself out of my comfort zone when it comes to my wardrobe and I decided it would be no different while pregnant!

I like this dress a lot because on cooler days I can wear it as a top as well paired with white skinnies. I think, technically, it is a top but all maternity clothes run really large and long on me, so I opted to wear it as a dress instead.

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!


BLAZER: OLD, similar here, on sale now.|| TOP: ASOS || JEANS: MOLLY & ZOE (similar here | maternity here) || HEELS: CHARLOTTE RUSSE  (similar here & here)|| BAG: CHANEL || SHADES: RAY BANS || EARRINGS: KATE SPADE || BUMP BAND: ASOS

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!


What’s Black, White, and Red all over?

This blog post! Ha ha ha… cheesy enough for everyone? Who doesn’t like to start their day with some cheeeeeese.

image-35image-36image-38image-39 Simple white shirts are another favorite wardrobe staple of mine. I live in white t-shirts (when I’m not pregnant) and either boyfriend jeans, or shorts depending on the season. When I found this top at A Pea in the Pod I was stoked! I immediately saw about 20 different ways I could wear it… BUT this look first!

This weather was legit. The epitome of a Spring day. When a cool breeze came I simply slumped down the scarf to cover my shoulders and arms and it warmed me right up!


This bracelet is a flee market find from one of my many trips to Aruba years ago! It used to make an every day appearance in my wardrobe but took a back seat to other accessories over the years. I forgot how much I loved it! It’s amazing what $7 in another country can get you. I just love rediscovering old favorites, don’t you?image-33 image-31 image-32

These are my first ever pair of Louboutins. The hubs bought them for me as a wedding present 🙂 They were insanely uncomfortable at first, but after almost 4 years of being worn in they kind of fit like a glove now. Maybe a glove on OJ’s hand, but a glove none the less! This Target bag is a total knockoff of a Celine, but I’m obsessed with it! I love all the space. I’ve been prone to carrying small crossbody bags for so long so it’s nice to have a little extra room for all of the crap I can accumulate so quickly while still maintaining a sophisticated look.

By the way! Thanks for everyone who weighed in across social media on the topic of going blonde! I’m totally doing it! Have not yet decided which shade of blonde (I’m between white white white blonde or a color similar to my ends) but I’m definitely doing it. Stay tuned ;]
