This + That // Sales + Steals

April 14, 2017

We checked into the Joule Hotel yesterday afternoon and it was so nice to just lounge by the pool for a few hours. We've had weird weather here that has been cloudy and rainy, so it was nice to enjoy some sunshine finally! Can't believe another weekend is already here and that we only have three weekends left before my due date. With less than 3 weeks left, we're installing the car seat this weekend just to be safe.

Casual Red (Maternity) Maxi

April 11, 2017

As the weather warms up and my belly is growing by the minute, I had been on the hunt for a few dresses to add to my closet that would work both now and after I have the baby. I cannot tell you the last time I purchased a "maxi-dress," but something about this one really jumped out at me. The little details like the smocked bodice, tassel ties at the shoulders, and pom pom trim were too cute to pass up. I'm not typically a lover of wearing red but it looks so good with the off-white and I also love the breathable, woven cotton which will be ideal when the heat is here to stay in Dallas. The dress being fitted up top makes it flattering, too!

Side note: I bought this GAIA Ark bag over a year ago before our trip to Anguilla and now it seems as if everyone and their mom has it, yet I still love it for this time of year! Definitely a great spring/summer bag…

This + That // Sales + Steals

April 7, 2017

With just four weekends left until my due date (including this one), we are trying to take full advantage of our time together before our little one comes because we know things are only going to get crazier and busier. On the agenda for this weekend is to get organized in the nursery with all of the amazing gifts we got last weekend at our last shower. Also going to pack our hospital bag because at our appointment this week, the doctor said that at this point he could come anytime! Hope everyone has fun weekend plans! If there's one sale I would recommend everyone partake in, it's Loeffler Randall's Friends & Family sale...20% off site-wide doesn't happen but a couple times a year and it's the perfect time to scoop up some of their newest spring/summer styles!

Silk Shirtdress

April 5, 2017

As someone who loves being comfortable and lives for pajamas and robes, I really appreciate when a designer makes pieces that are just as soft and cozy as my favorite bed clothes but perfectly created for everyday wear. Micaela Meyer is on a mission to master the shirtdress (I love her Kensington Dress in white!) and the Bloomsbury Silk Shirtdress isn't just beautifully cut in with her signature details (finished band collar, French seams, dropped shoulders and an inverted back pleat) but it honestly feels like I could be wearing a nightgown - it's that comfortable. The 100% silk charmeuse is so luxurious and lightweight, if it weren't for the fit and finish, I would have to do a double take before leaving the house.

 

I wore this exact outfit last weekend for dinner out with girlfriends to celebrate a birthday and it was the perfect thing for both the occasion and this time of year. I’m obsessed with pairing navy with black and love how the midnight Bloomsbury silk plays with the black Ellie sandals both in texture and color. Trust me…you need a dress like this in your closet and in your life!

Carnival Dress

April 3, 2017

I cannot believe it's already April (did this new month seem sneak up on anyone else?) and that I'm now just four weeks away from my due date. I've heard from my doctors that the next few weeks could be where I start to feel "get this baby out of me!" vibes but as of today, I'm still feeling really good (both mentally and physically).

The dress I'm wearing isn't actually a maternity style...I stumbled upon it while doing a lap around Shopbop several weeks ago (a favorite insomnia activity) and thought it would be great for my bump and worthy of a gift card I had been holding on to. My suspicions were spot on: the smocked bodice is super comfortable and the slightly flared skirt and mini style is perfect to accommodate a belly (unlike shorter non-maternity styles which can ride up!).

 

I loved the fit and look of the Carnival Dress so much that I ended up wearing it this past Saturday for the shower Molly and Hannah hosted for me in Dallas. It got paired with a pretty scarf in shades of blue and I love how it went from casual to dressed up so easily. The best part? I’ll be wearing the dress so much when I’m postpartum and hopefully for many seasons to come!

P.S. Don’t forget, Molly, Hannah and I are hosting a fantastic pop-up shopping event with HATCH and The Tot TOMORROW (April 4th) at The Loveliest! Stop by to shop or even just hang with us and enjoy a cupcake (or two, or three) from Bird Bakery!!
