Happy Tuesday my gorgeous friends!

As I hinted in yesterday's post, today we're talking about two colors that have been extremely popular these past few weeks and show no signs of stopping as we transition into both spring and summer and that's pink and red. Though all shades of pink seem to be trending, blush really seems to be the top pick of most and rightfully so, it's beautiful, romantic, and uber feminine. Plus, it's perfect for a smooth transition into spring. Yesterday, I paired my blush pink jacket with a pair of burgundy boots for a more seasonal feel, which is still in the trending red color category. At least in my book and pink looks so good paired with red when going the bold route in creating a color block effect, so good!

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

You guys, I think this is it, this is as far as I can go with wearing non-maternity jeans. I made it to 22 weeks with my favorite NY&Co style that've I've been raving about non stop because they truly impressed me with the amount of stretch they have. Since they still fit well overall, I'm thinking I'll just get the belly bands so I can still get some use. What's starting to bother me slightly is the button area under the belly. With the belly bands, I just won't be able to wear my tops tucked in anymore with them, which I love to do because it looks so chic and polished that way. If you happen to know of any great, affordable, comfy maternity jeans do let me know!

 Happy Friday my beautiful friends! 

I think sneakers are a great way to add a stylish kick (pun intended) to an otherwise simple casual outfit. I love the idea of teaming the colors found within the sneaker, if there are any, with bold outerwear for a more stylish impact. I think it makes for a nice cohesive look, one that appears to have been thought through, rather than throwing on a pair of random sneakers on the way out the door.

Happy Thursday my sweet friends!

We're officially at the point of the winter season where we're just tired of winter and ready for spring. This is also the time of year that the weather tends to be a little all over the place, warmer spring-like temps one day, a blizzard the next, true story. Since we can't control the elements, unfortunately, we can, however, control our styling! Today, I'll be sharing some outfit ideas that I feel are perfect for this time of year, as well as some tips on creating the spring vibe effect with winter clothing. Some of these outfits are pre-baby belly in case you're wondering where the bump went, haha. Okay, so let's get started, shall we?!

Happy Wednesday friends!

As promised, today, I'm sharing a haul of some recent purchases I picked up for baby girl. This isn't everything I've gotten thus far, just the super cute pieces, I left the basics out because they're not as exciting and stylish ;) I asked you all if you'd prefer that I share everything here or on IG Stories and those of you who responded prefered I shared it here. I'm so excited to share all these finds with you and I'm glad you wanted to see, though I probably would've shared anyway because I just can't help myself, haha. Hopefully this will give you mamas of little girls some ideas and suggestions to add to your little one's wardrobe and/or if someone you know is pregnant or has a little girl, you'll for sure be known as the best gift giver...yup, that cool aunt, godmother, or friend, haha. So, let's get into it, shall we!?

Ahhhh how I've missed you my gorgeous friends!

...The outfit I'm sharing today is what I wore to celebrate Saturday night. I actually styled this sweater similarly a couple of years ago (here). This time around, I added a different purse and some leopard pumps for a fun night out look. I love the design of this sweater because it flatters the midsection and my bump perfectly with the X mark pattern in the center and black panels on the side, creating a nice slimming effect, while still showcasing my bump in a flattering way. Unfortunately that night, some of the stitching in the X ripped and made a huge a hole, so now I can't wear it again, which sucks. I decided to pair it with leather accented leggings for comfort and edge. If you're pregnant too, I highly suggest leather accented leggings because you still have the stretch and comfort that regular leggings provide with the cotton and spandex material, yet you can still embrace the look of leather pants. A win-win.

TGIF my sweet friends!

I love winter whites, specifically ivory and all shades of off white. I think they look so sophisticated paired with any color and create a nice soothing vibe, perfect for winter. I also love how it looks paired with gold accents. Turtlenecks that have a nice stretch to them have quickly become a favorite of mine as my bump is growing. They look so chic and can be worn with anything and everything, so easy and so good. I love to tuck them into jeans to polish off a casual outfit, while dressing them up with pumps or cute boots. Today, to add some pizazz, I added in the classic and harmonious duo, red and leopard to the cream and I love how it came together and I hope you do, too!

Happy Wednesday my dear friends!

Most of us are aware of the fact that ruffles have been trending hard this season. It started during this past summer and transitioned into both fall and winter, and it shows no signs of stopping after seeing some of the f/w 18 collections that have hit the runways this week for NYFW. So, it's safe to say that ruffles are here to stay! What I've been noticing is that so many different variations have been showcased as a result, allowing for everyone, regardless of size or body shape, to embrace the uber feminine and flirty trend. In preparation for spring, which honestly can't come fast enough (shrug) I wanted to make your life easier (I hope) by suggesting styles that are most flattering for your body shape, so you know what will work with your body's features, since the extra fabric and overwhelm certain features, which you may or may not want.

Happy Monday, my dear friends!

This week, I'm officially 20 weeks, I'm half way there, can you believe it!? I can't. Time is going by way too fast! I feel her kicking and she's developing a bit of a pattern with her kicks. She'll begin as soon as I wake up in the morning, after I eat, whenever I say, "baby girl", "little girl" or "princess" and when I play Baby Mozart, she loves it! She also does it when she hears Eddie's voice, how cute!? Since I'm at the halfway mark, I've been noticing some clothing no longer fitting comfortably.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

These photos were obviously taken before the snowstorm we had yesterday, it snowed SO much!! I always love when it first snows, but after?! Not so much, haha. Maneuvering around it can be quite the challenge, either people are way too cautious on the road or drive like maniacs, very rarely is there a medium, haha.
