Happy Tuesday my beautiful friends!

A few months ago, I mentioned how pink was a growing color trend, sharing some of my favorites in the color, mainly blush pink, which is THE pink shade of the moment. Though there are many who are embracing this color trend, such as myself, there are some who have reservations and it's in due part to the possibility of pink looking a little too playful and well, childish.

Happy Thursday my gorgeous and stylish friends!

You may remember last year, I put together a post with my suggestions for the most flattering gingham pieces for your body type. Well, I figured it would be a great time to reiterate some points, while sharing some new style tips, as well as some pieces I have my eyes on, since the trend seems to be even more huge this time around and has been merged with other hot trends of the season, such as ruffles.

Happy Monday my gorgeous friends!

We're nearing the end of my pregnancy with me being 33 weeks, which I still can't believe. This is the time where getting dressed sometimes can post a challenge and you have to avoid purchasing new pieces and figure out ways to re-work what you already have in your wardrobe, especially since we've been having such unseasonably chilly weather here in Connecticut, so I haven't been able to wear dresses as much as I'd like, which are so much easier to work with.

Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!

One comment I receive often, both in person and here on the blog is, "you can't even tell your pregnant from the front!" Now, I don't intentionally try to conceal my baby bump because I personally feel as though it's something to be embraced, you're carrying around a human that's apart of you and being made in you, what's there to be ashamed of?!

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.
