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.

A very Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

To keep my spring optimism going, I've added a splash of color with a green satchel. Green, specifically a citrine greenish shade (yellow-green) has been coined the official color of the year for 2017 by Pantone. I find when any color, regardless of the shade, has been announced as the color of the year, it tends to appear in many and all shades for that particular color, so don't feel limited, find a green you love and rock it, there truly is a shade for everyone.

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are off to a great start to your Monday so far! This past weekend, I did a little shopping at Target. In last week's post, I asked if you knew of any maternity jean brands that are affordable and comfy to let me know; I got some really great suggestions, one of which was Target. To be honest, I've never really shopped at Target for clothing before. It's not that I've never liked anything, it's that anything I've ever liked was nearly always sold out of my size and there was never one that was conveniently near my house, so I wouldn't go often. This time, I tried a different location to see if I'd find more options and well, it was a partial success.

Happy Friday friends!

Do you guys remember when Kim K was pregnant with North and how she was ridiculed and made fun of for her fashion nearly all throughout her pregnancy? The media was so wrong in making fun of a pregnant woman, who by the way was pregnant for the first time. I think when you're newly pregnant, there's such a huge learning curve because as your body changes you have to learn what works, which can be really challenging because you've become so accustomed to dressing the way your body was pre-pregnancy for most of your life. The second time around, you kind of have an idea of what works and what doesn't including working with patterns.

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?!

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.

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 Monday my dear friends

As for this outfit, I have to be honest and bold enough to say that this blazer is my absolute favorite leather piece in my entire collection. I've had it for about 3 years now and it has held up amazingly well! It's such a great dupe for the iconic Balmain version (check it out on Kim K here, is it not an exact replica!?).

Happy Thursday, my dear friends!

When it comes to neutrals and basics, the first color that will often come to mind is black and rightfully so, it goes perfectly with everything and can be worn all year long. There are other darker neutrals, however, that are starting to become more popular, an alternative to black if you will, specifically navy. Like black, navy has a sophisticated vibe, in addition to a nautical effect, that reflects class and prestige, in my opinion. It may not be as entirely versatile as black, but it can often be swapped out in many of the color combinations you would typically consider black.
