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!
Pregnancy Status: 30 weeks
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)
