Happy Friday friends!

In Wednesday's post, I mentioned that there would be another post yesterday, but a family emergency arose (thank God everything is okay :) but that's the reason I wasn't able to share a post, in case you were wondering. Also, I received such a positive response on my thoughts on social media, many of you feel the same way and it was nice and encouraging to read your thoughts and feelings on the topic and society culture.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I have to first start off by saying that I was so close to not sharing this look with you guys today. It's not because I no longer love the outfit, but the photos are a bit blurry and well, we were only able to get one full body shot. It was SO cold when we were taking them because it was my genius idea to shoot at this location, which is literally across from a little reservoir. Smart, I know. The wind was crazy and the camera wasn't focusing too well. Then I read Helena of Brooklyn Blonde's post. She's been one of my favorite bloggers for years now, not only is it because she's beautiful, an uber stylish mommy (AND she's from Brooklyn, duh!) she's also very relatable. In her post, she opened up a little about feeling a little stressed with her Instagram growth, amongst some other things, something I can certainly relate to.

Happy Tuesday my gorgeous friends!

As the weather begins to get nicer and we no longer need the bulky wool coats to keep us warm, we often look for lighter jackets that we can wear that will serve us well on those often chilly spring (and fall) mornings; a perfect option in such case is a trench coat. What inspired me to write this post was the conversations some of you and I had on a recent post of me styling a trench coat. Some of you were unsure as to which styles would be flattering for your particular body shape as well as what color to get. Hopefully after reading this post, some of your uncertainties will be made certain, so you can shop with confidence for a style that will meet your particular needs!

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

How was your weekend? I did some online shopping; I FINALLY found a couple pairs of cute AND affordable maternity jeans on Asos' site, fingers crossed that they'll fit. You guys, it really is so hard to find them in my size and price range. I don't want to spend a ton on maternity jeans because I won't be wearing them long, so I just can't justify the hefty price tag.

Happy Friday my gorgeous friends!

We've made it to the end of the week, which calls for celebration! It did kind of seem to go a little fast this time around though, perhaps it's because of all the naps I've been taking lately?!  

I'm not going to be a negative nelly and harp on the cold weather we've been having and my disdain for it, but it did interfere with me being able to share an outfit post, as I typically would on a Friday. So, I figured I'd share a little #flashbackfriday post featuring some outfits that are perfect for spring and are quite unique in color combination. 

As you all know, I love to play around with colors, sometimes I create successes, other times not so much, but that's how you learn what works, right!? Well, today, I'm hopefully taking some guess work out of your hands with some color combinations I've put together last season and received so many compliments on. Of course your pieces will vary, but even if you happen to have some accessories in the colors that are within any of the outfits, you'd be able to recreate the look with your own spin. Since it's Friday and you may have some night out plans, let's start off with an outfit/color combination that'll be perfect for the occasion.

Happy Thursday my gorgeous friends!

I'm back with yet another beauty post! I'm really loving this change because not only am I sharing products I've been loving and using for a while, but it also encourages me to try different brands and products, too, and by the response I received in my previous beauty post, you seem to enjoy the idea of adding beauty related content to TSC as well, which makes me all the more excited!

Today's post is on a brand that I'm very much familiar with and have been using for years! I do want to start off by saying that this post is no way sponsored by Shea Moisture, as you know, I'll always indicate if a post is indeed sponsored, so you'll never have to wonder or guess. I just wanted to address that in case you were curious ;)

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! 

This time of year is when I often love to play around with earthy tones and printed neutrals the most because I feel they fit the transitional season best. Such colors include olive greens, lighter shades of brown, grey in all shades, and of course my favorite all year round printed neutral, leopard print. If there ever was a shoe I wore nearly all the time these babies are it! Whenever you want to add a little sass to your outfit, they're the perfect option and they pair well with everything

Happy Tuesday sweet friends!

As many of you may have noticed from spotting what some of the elite fashionistas and celebrities have been wearing and what our favorite brands are pushing out for their spring 2017 collections, is that much of the details that were notable trends from last season are still going strong!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

How was your weekend?! My mom and my niece did end up spending the weekend with us and we had such a great time! We watched a couple of movies and made s'mores by the fireplace, which I must admit is probably the only thing I'll miss about this cold weather once it finally leaves, since today is the first day of spring! However, though it's the first day of what should be warmer weather, it's still pretty cold, which is of course expected for this transitional time making the trench coat a perfect staple for both now and later in the fall.

Happy Friday my gorgeous friends!

I will be keeping this blog post short and sweet today because I'm exhausted! It seems as though the fatigue is coming back, sigh. But, it's not nearly as bad as my first and early second trimester, which is great.
