Whomever said horizontal stripes make the wearer look larger is no friend of mine. Stripes have proven to be a perennial favorite among practically everybody, myself included. I think of stripes, like animal print, as wardrobe neutral and am happy to work them in to my wardrobe when I’m a bit larger.  At 37 weeks preggo, […]

dolce vita booties

This weekend I spent most of my time on the couch combating a cold. Suffice it to say, having a cold while pregnant is not me.  It’s time…get this baby out of me! It’s been 37+ weeks and I’m ready to have my old body back (or at least start working toward having that body […]

casual maternity clothes

One of my favorite spots to browse dresses is PinkBlush maternity, a small, family-run company that provides stylish apparel both for women who […]

Nude Louboutins

Yesterday I shared my maternity dress must-haves, but there are so many everyday dresses out there that work for maternity wear. Finding these is like finding gold because you can get so much more wear out of them. Now, every body shape and pregnancy is crazy different. Even this pregnancy is markedly different from my […]

lemons make lemonade tee

Last weekend we packed our bags and hit the road. While we love to travel, this family getaway was less than 30 minutes away. At 34-weeks pregnant, a staycation seemed to be the best way to get some quality family time and make a few more memories as a threesome. We stayed at the Residence […]

Non-Matenrity Dresses for Maternity Wear

You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been on a bit of a maxi dress kick lately. I saw this one while scrolling through my Keep app and thought, “that dress is cuuuute, but probably really expensive.”  My curiosity made me click on the link anyway and I’m glad I did because the dress was from Lulu’s (a retailer […]
