Is it cold enough for you? It's been insanely cold here in CT and I'm so over it. As I'm getting older and have a little one(s), I'm really beginning to not like winter after the holidays. Eddie was quite surprised when I shared this with him the other day because for years I've boasted about how much I love the fact that New York (and CT) experiences all four seasons. Not no mo!
I hope you all had a great weekend! So, last night, we found out the gender of baby #2. I won't spoil it in this post, instead I'll have you go on over and check it out on Stories where we announced it! I've saved it to the 'Pregnancy' highlight. In other pregnancy news...
Thank you all so much for your incredibly sweet and encouraging words in my pregnancy announcement post last week! You made me smile ear to ear as I read each comment. Blogging has many benefits, most of which come from the relationships and connections you make and I feel so grateful to have your love and support. It's pretty cool to think how I've started this blog several years ago and I'm now in an entirely different stage in my life that you all get to experience with me, as I share each milestone and journey.
What better way to start off the new year on the blog than by sharing this very exciting news with all of you, we're expecting baby #2! If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen my story on Christmas sharing the news. I wanted to do a formal blog post announcing it though, since I know that not everyone had the chance to see it and seeing me with a bump out of nowhere may leave some questioning, when did she announce she's pregnant?
To continue on with Monday's discussion on statement sweaters, I'm sporting a cobalt sweater I purchased during the nSale at the end of summer. I remember falling in love with the color and victorian-like style of the turtleneck in combination with the balloon sleeves, which you know I'm a huge fan of.
I hope you all had a great weekend! As you all know, I'm a huge lover of all things bold in color and pattern. When it comes to a specific piece, it can really do all the talking for you, allowing you to go pretty simple or basic everywhere else. In recent years, sweaters have become more exciting.
First, thank you for all of your support and encouragement in Friday's post both here on the blog and Instagram! This community is honestly amazing and I'm thankful to have such amazing friends in all of you!
Now onto today's discussion!
Pantone recently announced the color for 2019 and it's a color that looks good on everyone and pairs well with all metals, coral (read why it was selected here). I've talked about this orange-red hue in the past, boasting how flattering it is. It not only looks good against all skin tones and hair colors, but it also has the ability to add a fresh, luminous look to the skin, which couldn't be more appreciated during the dead of winter. Am I right?
It's been a very long time since my last post—a little over a month. That's the longest I've ever gone without blogging or posting on social media for the 6 years I've been blogging. So what happened? The short answer...#momlife. If you want to know more details, then keep reading.
I hope your November is off to a great start so far! About a month ago, I mentioned how I purchased these grey jeans for my collaboration with Simon Malls. I had been looking for a pair like this for a while. I've actually worn them quite a few times since that initial post and I know that I'll be wearing them a lot throughout the remainder of fall and into winter. I love that they're not a flat grey, they have some black undertones and some white fades, giving them a bit of an acid wash effect, but not full on 80s style.
I hope you're all having a great week so far! Today is the last day of October, which I still can't manage to wrap my head around. I can't believe we're about to enter into November, which is one of my favorite months. I'm so excited this time around because now that Aviah is bigger, she's able to partake in so much more this upcoming holiday season! I go all out for Thanksgiving and I'm so excited to have her help in the kitchen. She's at the stage where she wants to help me do everything, which is just too cute and I greatly appreciate.
