I’m going to keep this short and sweet! I had so many questions from friends, family, and readers about my baby shower dress I thought I would go back and touch on this really quick! I found my dress from Express, I did have to have it altered slightly to be more Bump friendly but, it was an easy fix and I would highly reccomend this dress if you’re looking for something to wear while pregnant for an event. Trust me I remember close to the end when it was so hard to dress my baby bump comfortably and cute, this dress is both! However you can totally wear this even if you’re not pregnant (obviously right, this wasn’t made for maternity)! There were few sizes left last time I had checked but incase you have missed it Express is having 40% off their entire site so if you were thinking about grabbing it, now is your chance! Plus you can get a head start on buying all your Fall and winter denim!
So when we think of Fall we normally think maroon, burgundy, brown, yellow, orange, etc am I right? While I LOVE those colors (because again I’m basic when it comes to fall) people also over look one of the prettiest and softest colors of fall, Blush! You will find this color all over right now and for many great reasons! It compliments almost any skin tone and it’s the new nude! It goes with almost any outfit and can be used as a “soft” pop of color for those who are leery of being bold (it’s okay)! If you checked out my last post you saw some of my Fall items I’m loving and have ordered. Here are a couple others I’m crushing on as well!
9 –> Alexis Stud Knotted Mule (I LOOOOOOVE THESE!!)
10 –> Free People Saturday Morning Cardigan (I Bought this and the Chenille cardigan in Pink and mustard yellow… Lets just say I will be living in these this Fall!)
Hello Fall! Ughhhh how you have been long awaited. There is just something so wonderful about cozy cardigans, fluffy scarves, booties, hot coffee, the leaves changing, and the brisk breezes of Fall weather. However, here in Kansas we haven’t quite been so fortunate to have that just yet except, for the early morning hours. You know, like sweater weather right when you wake up but then by noon you deeply regret it and its back to tank top weather. Fall, you are playing us so hard! But, that doesn’t mean we can’t get a head start on fall essentials, am I right? I am so Basic when it comes to Fall, and I am A-OKAY with that! If you are curious about the sizing on the cardigans I ordered a small and they are slightly oversized which I like. If you like a more fitted cardigan I would go ahead and size down. Im pretty excited for these fall picks and I have a feeling they’re going to sell out fast!
So where to begin!? I am absolutely IN LOVE with how our pictures turned out! I could not be happier. Thank you so much Elly Bean Photography for capturing these moments! You seriously work magic!
For anyone looking for a maternity photographer I HIGHLY recommend her! She is so kind and personable! I am a slightly awkward person when it comes to having pictures taken and she made everything feel so easy and natural. Elly was also very helpful in guiding us on what to do or what looks great, she even kept in mind that I had a “favorite” side for pictures! I know silly but little details like that always make me feel great because I feel confident in certain camera angles.
We can’t wait to use her again for Roman’s newborn pictures! I’m so excited to see what she will come up with! Thank you again so much Elly!!!
So I always look forward to the Fourth of July because we get to spend time with our family and friends which is always fun because we get to see people we don’t always get to see! Plus with baby almost here it’s nice to just get out!
Now I am someone who always likes to look cute when celebrating any holiday but I like to do it in a cute subtle way. Normally I would find a cute red white or blue swimsuit with a fun tank and shorts or cover up but since I am so pregnant right now I am limited on cute clothes and swimsuits. However pregnant or not I thought these items would be great to tie into your Fourth of July wardrobe plus, who doesn’t love a good red lip?!
I Hope you all have a wonderful Fourth!
