30 Weeks- Birkin Bump

By | 3rd Trimester, Fashion, Maternity Wear, Outfit Of the Day, Pregnancy | No Comments

I’m trying my best to channel a pregnant 1970’s Jane Birkin today. I’m also giving these heels a jaunt while I still can! Before heels are no longer an option.

You guys know I’m all about budget deals and that’s especially true for me when pregnant. So, while this dress has a Madewell vibe, it’s actually Forever 21. And these clog heels? Target. Score. Also, these shoes are surprisingly comfy! And this dress can totally be worn post baby!

Don’t worry, I’m totally wearing shorts under this tiny dress! Even if I’m at the office all day, I’m still a mom with a toddler and it’s a pretty short dress, so- better safe than sorry right?

30 weeks – spring has sprung

By | 3rd Trimester, Fashion, Maternity Wear, Outfit Of the Day, Pregnancy | No Comments

Sorry things have been a little slow over here lately. Moving and a crazy work schedule have got me pretty preoccupied. I have some fun collaborations that I cant wait to share with you, but as those sorts of things go, I can’t share until they do so- hang tight. I’m calling today’s look “spring has sprung” as if the ice just finally melted. Let’s be real, I live in Los Angeles, we essentially have two seasons. We have summer for 3/4 of the year and Fall for 1/4. But this outfit seemed like it had a pretty good spring vibe that I’m hoping will inspire some of you in not as warm climates!

For those of you that follow me on social media, you may recall that I ate my words on the “birken-stop” hate train I was on and I recently bought a pair of Target fauxkinstocks. What I loved about the target ones was the color, they looked much more like Salwater Sandals than Birks. I am clearly fickle so I wasn’t ready to commit to the price of real Birkenstocks. But after only a week with the fauxkinstocks, I caved and bought real Birkenstocks. Again swayed by a new color that felt much more modern and less hippy- but also highly swayed by pregnancy. I have gotten to a place in my pregnancy where my feet feel bruised and achy if I have been on them too long. Walking around our house’s hard wood floors barefoot is a serious no-no that I WILL pay for later. I’ve never been too much for tennies to begin with so I didn’t want to have to rely on wearing my Nike’s everyday in order to get the arch support my poor pregnant feet were craving. So after trying a friends pair of real Birkenstocks (thanks Elizabeth!) I finally coughed up the money and got a real pair. I realize I’m a jerk. But you already knew that by now, right?

Hat: Urban Outfitters

Sunnies: Forever 21

Maternity Chambray: Top Shop

Striped Maternity Tank: Old Navy

Jeans: J.crew. These are not maternity, the secret is my Blanqi support tank that works 500 million times better than a belly band, so even at 30 weeks I can still wear non maternity.

Sandals: Birkenstocks from Nordstrom (for those of you interested in the faux target ones, I got these and currently clothes/shoes/accesories are buy one get one half off)

28 Weeks- Peter Pan Collar

By | 3rd Trimester, Fashion, Maternity Wear, Outfit Of the Day, Pregnancy | No Comments

Ive officially had to break out some of my maternity jeans.  This baby belly is getting larger and buttons and such are just no longer my friends. Luckily I still have a few pairs of forgiving or stretchy non maternity pants that I can rotate in (for a little while longer at least). But today was about comfort, so maternity jeans and a flowy top suited my mood. I found this ….dress? ….at Forever 21 that works great as a pregnancy tunic. I could even still wear it with little shorts for more of a dress-look as things warm up, at least until belly fully takes over and decides this thing is a crop top haha. I accentuated the simple peter pan collar with a J.Crew statement necklace. It’s an easy and put together look that most of all is absolutely still comfortable!

Third Trimester!?

Still not sure I’ve really wrapped my head around the fact that I will be a mother of two soon. As an only child myself, it’s a bit of a foreign concept. I knew I always wanted children and always hoped I would have multiple – but that idea coming to fruition is still not fully realized. But I feel so grateful that we will soon have two. I know that even after this bean is born, it will still take time to get comfortable with and I know that the moments of gratefulness will be interspersed with moments of total F-ing chaos but we’re okay with that. And we’ve already learned that the gratefulness always outweighs the chaos and even in the chaos you have to find the time to be grateful. As a mother, my mind is forever busy and my heart is forever full.

Six Ways Challenge: A/W14: Look Six

This last week or so has been so super crazy. Our family just bought our very first house. And with a toddler a pregnant belly and a full time job- you can imagine it’s been busy. We are still living out of boxes but I pulled aside a few basics that I can mix and match until we get more settled. The Protector Lover Mother beanie is an easy small accessory that I can use to make an outfit feel a little more pulled together and, well, accessorized haha. Also, you can’t go wrong with all black right?! I paired it with my LB Crossover tee and a ripped black jean for an easy, edgy, put together look. Now no one has to know that almost everything I own is still in boxes.

 

This was the last shot we took of the day just being silly- pretty pleased to say I’ve still got jump skillz at almost 7 months pregnant! haha.
