Happy Friday my gorgeous friends!

As many of you know, the 4th of July is my due date, which is this upcoming Tuesday! So, at this point, Baby A can arrive at this very moment (which I'm hoping for) or extend her stay in my belly, haha. To be honest, I'm at the point where I'm just so tired of being pregnant, which I feel like I've been forever, and I know she's tired of being tucked in my belly too because she frequently stretches and so far, the doctor is saying she's about 7.7oz, she's a big girl (I was over 8lbs). I've been very tired, so as I've mentioned these past couple of days, simplicity for me is key when it comes to getting dressed. Of course I want to look stylish, too, and that's where Séraphine, a maternity line I've recently been introduced to comes in.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

I will be keeping today's post short and sweet because I'll be honest and say I don't have much brain power right now, haha; I'm tired! I will say this, when the weather doesn't demand for a dress, I've been opting for a basic tank, jeans, and some sort of interesting footwear, such as these neon sandals. I'm a huge fan of neon come summer, especially when combined with denim.

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

I'm officially 39 weeks, you guys! I'm not going to get into specifics or TMI, but I think I'm a few short days from giving birth; if you've been pregnant, then I'm sure you can figure out what signaled that for me, lol. On top of that, I've been having more contractions, so it's all a waiting game at this point. I've been hearing that when it's your first baby, you tend to go past your due date, but I've also been hearing from some moms that they were quite early, we shall see!

Happy Friday my dear friends!

One pieces are such summer essentials because they really take the guess work out of getting ready, especially when it's too hot to think. I'm talking dresses of all lengths, rompers, and jumpsuits. They're all so effortless, creating a complete outfit with very little effort and most can be dressed up or down, depending on how you style them, considering the accessories, bag, and shoes you add.

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

So, I had a bit of a false alarm yesterday. I went in for my weekly OB exam and my blood pressure was quite high. My doctor took a few times and the number wasn't going down and so she sent me off to the hospital to have some blood work and tests done. This actually happened to me when I was around 20 weeks and all ended up being good. What got me a little nervous was when she said if anything we'll induce you and you can have her today or perhaps Friday. Wait, what?! No! I'm not ready, lol! I don't know if any of you ever been in a situation like this where you've gone into a doctors office and had some unexpected news, it definitely throws you for a loop! I mean, I did mention on Monday that we have nearly everything ready for, car seat installed, bags packed an all, but still

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

So with only a couple of weeks left, there's of course very limited pieces I can still fit into; I've been forced to get even more creative than I have been throughout this pregnancy, keeping in mind that I've only purchased about 5 maxi dress and 2 maternity jeans. Other than that, I've been working with my pre-pregnancy wardrobe. I actually won this dress (yes, can you believe this is supposed to be a dress?! lol) at a blogger event I attended a couple of years in a raffle. Fun Fact: Every time I would go to a blogger even, I'd always win at least two raffle prices, don't ask me how, lol! Though this isn't technically a top and was classified as a dress, I'd call it more of a tunic.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

I hope you all had a great week; I'm beyond ready for the weekend. As I mentioned in Wednesday's post, Eddie hasn't been feeling well and neither has my mom. With two of the people that would typically be helping me out the most at this time in my pregnancy not feeling well, it's been a bit of an overwhelming week to say the least. Anyone who knows me well knows that I love to cook and I typically make vegan meals during the week, but sometimes they're not all that quick and easy. That said, it's been one of those pasta and whatever else that requires as little time as possible kinda weeks, yup!

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! It's been so hot and humid here in Connecticut, a huge change from the rainy and chilly weeks we've been having, so of course that means everyone around me is getting sick! Fingers crossed that I will not come down with a cold because the thought of having one while pregnant makes me nervous. I managed to escape winter without a single sneeze, so I want to finish up these last few weeks of my pregnancy without a cold!

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a wonderful week ahead! I'm officially 37 weeks along in my pregnancy and some of the most common symptoms that I had managed to avoid for much of my pregnancy are beginning to creep up on me, one of which is swollen feet! You guys, I don't think I'll be following in my mother's footsteps (literally) in wearing heels all the way through to delivery; I give it to her and have no idea how she did it, haha. My feet have been so swollen these past few days and I don't think the fact that we've been experiencing a bit of a heat wave has made it any easer. So, I've been wearing a lot of cute flat sandals that I thankfully picked up when I went on that little Target shopping spree, remember this post?! I actually really love these because they're quite comfy, even though they have a lace up design and can make an outfit look a tad bit dressier due to the beaded details, which are super pretty!

Happy Friday my dear friends!

I hope you all had a great week and are ready for what I hope will be a wonderful weekend! As you know, mine has been a bit tiring, haha, so I'm looking forward to getting some work done that I wasn't able to during the week, as well as some extra rest. 

Now, onto the exciting part, photos from last week's baby shower! I first want to mention that the quality of some of the photos aren't that great because we had to switch to our iPhones, since the camera conveniently began giving some issues, but I still had to share! As mentioned, I went for an English breakfast theme. I got the idea from last summer when my mother and I went to Alice's Tea Cup in NYC for brunch (a must if you're ever around Madison and 5th ave). It was my first time experiencing an English high tea brunch and I absolutely loved the experience and how elegant it was.
