ASOS Green Wrap Dress

16 February 2017

I've said it before and I'll say it again, wrap dresses are a key ingredient when it comes to closet staples. Especially when it comes to dressing bumps of all sizes. This particular dress doesn't come from the maternity section of ASOS and still managed to fit like a glove because of the stretchy knit fabric and faux wrap front. The colors pops, and the front details take it from typical wrap dress to something a little more special whether I'm wearing it my new sneakers or a heel. Since it's not quite sleeveless weather here a leather topper keeps me from looking took ridiculous walking around in the 40-something degree weather. That and it kind of toughens up the look a bit to match the sneakers with a dress styling, which I am all for at nearly 29 weeks pregnant. (Truth: these sneakers totally have a super padded insole making them a dream to walk in and I may be wearing a kids size 3).

Turtlenecks and Pregnancy

14 February 2017

One thing I've learned this pregnancy is that turtlenecks on a pregnant gal can go horribly wrong, REALLY FAST. Honestly, mock necks are probably the way to go to avoid looking like I have six chins or a giant potato for a head. I've taken enough pictures over the last few months to make me never want to wear them again, but alas somehow I still find myself shooting outfits featuring this 'clothing frenemy'. This time around things turned out in the positive for once with this cute little jumper and socks with heels pairing. Now, if it would just stay consistently warm enough to wear this on a regular basis as opposed to like, once a week, I would be set. Thankfully a coat helps me out when I get the occasional chill on my constantly overheated body. I will say one perk of running at abnormally high temperatures is being able to wear bare legged looks like this in 40 degree weather no problem...

Blue Maxi Wrap Dress

13 February 2017

As far as fitting into pre-pregnancy styles go, wrap dresses have been a godsend. I actually got this gorgeous maxi in September during fashion week at the Lulu's Style Studio and completely forgot about it after filing it away in my closet to wear post-baby. I pulled it out last week while looking for one of my swing dresses and found that it basically still fit. Well, for now. I'm sure this is likely the last time I'll be able to wear it until post-bump but I'll take it. Since it's not quite sandal weather just yet It's getting styled with my new grey suede boots from Matt Bernson (they're on sale on Gilt!). I literally can't get enough of them, so you'll be seeing a whole lot more of them now through Spring.  


12 Unconventional Valentine's Gifts for Him and Her under $100

10 February 2017

When it comes to gift giving and receiving on Valentine's Day, my husband and I are super unconventional. We skip over the traditional gifting of jewelry, flowers, and occasionally chocolates in favor of something more 'fun' and unique. We're basically set with hot chocolate, take out and quirky gifts - I couldn't be more happy with the way of things. Who needs diamonds when you get a box full of specialty hot chocolate mix? No seriously, file that under gifts that get me excited. 

As far as this year's gift ideas go we landed on UncommonGoods, a Brooklyn based e-commerce site that specializes in unique and creative goods from an array of artisans & designers. If you like supporting local businesses and you like my super bright agate coasters (spotted here on Instagram) you're going to LOVE Uncommongoods and their robust selection. Plus, they have an awesome Valentine's Day guide that makes navigating and shopping for your significant other (or self) ridiculously easy and dare I say, fun? The amount of cool and unique items there will dazzle you.

So, with a little help from the hubs, we created a guide of unconventional Valentine's Gifts for Him and Her for under $100 from Uncommongoods. Check out my favorite finds for myself and see what's on David's wishlist this year.

Floral Boho Dress + 28 Week Bump Update

Yesterday was a wash as far as weather and style goes, however the day before was AMAZING! Hello 62˚ and sunshine. It made me want to skip right over the rest of winter and head right into Spring. I finally got a chance to wear this adorable Chicwish floral dress that I've been dying to wear for the last couple of months. It styled perfectly with my Report Liola Boots (under $100 now!), Suedette Jacket (which just went on sale for $67!) and of course, my new do' from Fourteen Jay. Taylor killed it with this haircut and I'm thrilled. Obsessed. 

As far as my bump goes, I'm sprinting right into my 3rd trimester this week and can't believe this pregnancy is flying by the way it is. I'm almost a little sad that it's almost over. I will say that I'm super relieved morning sickness is finally in the past and I feel somewhat normal, though I'm toting around a 20 pound, super active bowling ball. When I'm not getting kicked in the ribs by this little ball of sunshine I'm shamelessly craving all things spicy and attempting to squeeze into my pre-pregnancy clothes. Dresses are still pretty friendly but jeans are a definite no-go. Ha!

 
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 

9 Easy Valentine's Day Treat Recipes

08 February 2017


Can you believe it? Valentine's Day is less than a week away! This year's celebration of the holiday, like most previous years, will be super low key. I'm all for ordering take out and sacking out on the couch for a little routine binge watching with the boys. If I'm feeling especially festive I might whip up a few VDAY treats for breakfast and snack time to celebrate the holiday of love instead of going for store bought chocolates and random chalk flavored candies. In all honesty some of my favorite recipes are the ones that only take a few ingredients and steps because at this point who really has time to slave over homemade goodies really? Not me.

So, with the highest degree of ease in mind, I'm sharing some of my favorite Valentine's appropriate treats that not only look like they took some serious effort to put together, but taste like it too. Trust me, the Valentine(s) in your life will be completely won over by these tasty morsels while you smile and act like you spent hours in the kitchen creating them...
