My Baby Shower 009

My family and friends showered me and bébé Marechal with love and goodies this last weekend! I feel so blessed to have been able to spend the afternoon with my loved ones and celebrate the little nugget that will join us early next year. My mom threw the shower and as always, outdid herself on the fabulous decorations and delicious food. I wanted to share a few snaps from the shower and will be posting some on my Instagram account as well. I especially loved the vintage french books and the book called The Twirly Skirt that she found! The cookies were a big hit (as delish as they were beautiful) and of course, my first baby Gaston joined in on the festivities!

Lusting Over Coats

November 12th, 2014

Although I am a die hard summer fan, by the time fall arrives I cannot wait to slip into one of my favorite coats. The last few years I have been caught majorly lusting over coats and I have no shame about it. I snagged a few favorites last year seen here and here, and although they are still totally fabulous, I may have to score one more this season. Here are some I am lusting after at the moment (click images to shop the look), but the search continues…

Sage

This sage green top from James Perse has been a closet favorite of mine for years (previously worn here). It is just that item of clothing I turn to in the fall and winter when I want a basic look that I know will be flattering. Imagine my joy this last weekend when I went to put it on and it still fit! Yipee! This time I paired it with some skinny jeans (worn with a belly band) and Ralph Lauren booties. I love the mix of soft neutrals like this sage green paired with black for fall and this look really hits the bill.

Snake Print Pants

November 3rd, 2014

snake print pants 5

One thing I have managed to do throughout this pregnancy is control the urge to splurge on tons of maternity clothing. It took me several months to grow out of most of my fitted regular clothing, and other (more forgiving) pieces are still working for me. These snake print pants were one of the items I had to splurge on. I paired them with an American Apparel tee that is still managing to fit around my belly. I have found that as my belly gets bigger, I feel more feminine and beautiful in tighter clothing to showcase the bump. Whereas in the beginning when I felt it wasn’t totally obvious that I was pregnant, I was still doing more of the baggy look. It has been a fun journey fashionwise so far and I can’t wait to see it grow more and attempt to dress it along the way.

Happy Halloween!

October 31st, 2014

halloween

Happy Halloween to my lovely readers! I hope your day is spooky and full of tricks and treats! The hubby and I will be staying in our neighborhood and passing out candy to the many kiddos that live on the street. It is the first year we are in a house for Halloween and with rain in the forecast, we can’t think of a better way to spend the occasion. I bought a cute little witch hat and may try and get a little dressed up just for fun. How are you spending your Halloween?

btw – sorry for the lack of posts lately…I have been a busy bee and will get back on it asap.
