Dress: Mango Boots: Steve Madden Earrings: H&M Handbag: Louis Vuitton

It’s another beautiful day in NYC! I am loving this mild February weather. I am SUCH a summer girl and literally count down to summer the moment it’s over ha! I am probably the only mother to be on the planet who is excited to be pregnant in the summer. The heat doesnt bother me and I just want to be covered in maxi dresses!

Anyways! That’s enough dreaming of summer. This Mango dress is super fun! I love the flutter sleeves and drop waist. I decided to pair it with a pair of over the knee boots and a great pair of earrings. The other day when the weather was colder I paired a turtleneck underneath the dress and put on a pair of black tights. It’s super versatile. I should mention that this is not a maternity dress. I just sized up to accommodate the bump :). It also happens to be under $50!

I have a big reveal coming to the blog later this week. I will be revealing what we are having!! We found out yesterday and I can’t wait to share with all of you guys! What do you think?? Boy or girl?!

Jacket: Blank NYC Jeans: Asos Top: H&M MAMA Shoes: Zara Similar: Boden Hat: Club Monaco

Happy Sunday folks! This weekend was absolutely beautiful in NYC. I was so excited to finally get a chance to wear my new Blank NYC suede leather jacket. As I have mentioned before, the quality is amazing and it’s really hard to find a suede jacket for under $200! I paired it again with black and leopard like I did in this post but more on the casual side :). These maternity boyfriend jeans have been one of my favorite purchases so far during my pregnancy. I didn’t even think they made boyfriend jeans for preggo ladies ha! They are super comfortable and I really like the wash. Last but not least, I topped off this look with this Club Monaco wool hat. It’s on sale right now!

I am really hoping the rest of the weekend flies by because we find out if we are having a boy or girl tomorrow! I can’t wait to tell you guys!

Dress: Asos I also love this style: Asos Jacket: Blank NYC Heels: Aldo (old) Similar: LOVE THESE: Topshop

Hello friends! I love a bardot neckline, don’t you? The neckline is so classic and flattering. I wanted to purchase a little black (maternity) dress for nights out and events and found this Asos one and scooped it up right away. You can dress it up or down and a black dress is a must have in any closet, pregnant or not. I paired it with a pair of leopard heels and my new favorite suede jacket. I had been looking for a great cropped suede/leather jacket and when I found this one under $200 I bought it right away. The quality is amazing and so is the price!! It comes in a bunch of colors too. I have been eyeing the green and burgundy ones.

I am so excited that the weather has been nice enough for open toed shoes!! Maybe spring is coming sooner than we think!? Also, how funny is it that I am posing in front of a wine and liquor store! Hope you all can have a drink for me ;)!

Dress: Pea in the Pod Boots: Nine West Coat: Club Monaco Gloves: Club Monaco Lip Stain: Sephora Bag: Louis Vuitton

Hi Guys! I hope you all had a fab weekend. The weather was amazing and Matt and I spent a ton of time outside which was a great change from the crappy cold weather we have had for what feels like an eternity! I shot this look last week when there was still snow on the ground. Crazy how in just a few days the temperature and landscape can change 100%! All the snow is melted now, yay!

Anyways, on to the outfit. Now that I am pregnant, I have realized how limited the maternity options are even in NYC! There are only a few stores that carry maternity and they are spread out all over the city. The sizing is limited and so shopping online has been my go to for maternity clothes. I did recently discover that Macy’s has a Pea in the Pod “shop in shop” at their 34th street location with a decent selection. It’s small, but they have some great curated items and I found this dress there which I adore. I am finally at the part of my pregnancy where I am showing enough to fit into maternity clothing. It was a weird and awkward transition up until now because my regular jeans and bottoms didn’t really fit comfortably and maternity bottoms were too big. I just felt kind of fat and bloated. I am starting to finally fill out maternity wear a bit which makes it easier to shop and get dressed in the morning! I have never been a big bodycon fan but now that I have a bump I love to embrace it lol! I love all the colors of this dress and was drawn to it immediately. It has a great cotton fabric and a hidden bra top inside for extra support. I paired it with these Nine West suede boots. I love the heel as it isn’t too tall but still gives you a lift and dresses up the dress.

I hope you all have a great rest to this short week.

Bomber: Asos (sold Out) Similar: Here, here and here Top: H&M Joggers: H&M Booties: Sam Edelman

 Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all are having a fabulous long weekend so far. The other night, my friend and amazing photographer Brandon went into Times Square to shoot this fun casual look. As a local New Yorker, I tend to avoid Times Square at all costs as it is the craziest, busiest tourist attraction in all of NYC ha! That said, it is still a fun and exciting place to go and we had a blast shooting there. I found these joggers from H & M and bought them on the spot. They are maternity and are amazing because they have this large panel that you can fold in half for the start of your pregnancy and then wear the full panel when you get bigger. Also, they are only $17! Score! I paired them with a striped H & M maternity top and this amazing floral bomber jacket I got last fall. Sadly it’s sold out but I linked a few similar options from Asos.

I hope you guys have a fantastic rest of your weekend! It’s been so gorgeous out!

Hi guys! I hope you all are having a fabulous week. If you have been following along on my Facebook and Instagram you may have seen that I was in Palm Springs last week. I had never been there before but had the best time soaking up a little vitamin D! I was out there for work (not sure if some of you know this but I have a full time job in Marketing) and I was in Palm Springs on behalf of Waverly Inspirations. We were attending the ALT summit at the Saguaro Hotel. The backdrop to the photos was a part of the incredible installation we created for the event. The on-site photographer took these pictures of me so I figured I would share my outfit with you guys!

First of all, let me talk about my new suede jacket!! I have been eyeing this suede jacket in multiple colors since last fall and finally bit the bullet and man am I happy I did! I wore it every day in Palm Springs and it went with everything! It just adds this cool girl vibe to any outfit, plus it’s under $200 which for a real suede jacket is pretty darn good. I sized up to medium to have room for my growing belly, and I think it definitely runs true to size. As for my top, I found it on asos.com and hit BUY right away considering the $23 price tag and beautiful color! It’s super comfy and I know it will grow comfortably with me as my bump gets bigger. I also got these great navy blue trousers that are a fun cropped style. I had originally paired this look with a new pair of cute flats but they killed the back on my ankles so I had to pull out the flip flops haha! Nothing worse than blisters am I right?!

We are having a baby!! I have been so excited to share this incredible blessing with you all!! I am sure most of you have noticed that I haven’t been posting as much over the last three months or so and that’s because I have been preggers and EXHAUSTED! So exhausted in fact that the idea of getting dressed and taking a photograph of my outfit sounded like pure torture ha! I am finally into my second trimester and feeling so much better and excited to document my pregnancy style with all of you on my blog. This has been such an exciting, overwhelming and beautiful experience thus far and we can’t wait to meet our little one.

I wanted to also shout out to Shadi Garman who took our photos. Thank you so very much for capturing this moment in time that we will cherish forever!! I linked to her website above. If you are in the NYC area and need incredible photos taken, do not hesitate to reach out to her. You will be thrilled you did!
