Food/Beverage

Press Cafe: This place is YUMMO and right on the Trinity with lots of grass for the kiddos to run around.  It is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Great drinks too! 

Mama’s Pizza: The best to grab pizza and beer. It isn’t a fancy place but the crust is the BEST. Love that I can go in a ball cap!

McKinley’s: A great lunch spot with the ladies and kids and they have SO many fun desserts!

Club’s

Ridglea Country Club: LOVE how family oriented they are and the kids club is great!

Fort Worth Club: I love their lounge to go grab drinks and have good conversation.

Activities

Z Boaz Park: This is a small quaint park that we love to pop in and swing at. It is clean and surrounded by trees!

LuLaRoe Love

Okay y’all; being a mom of a high needs baby [more about that later], I am looking to stay fashionable but comfortable. LuLaRoe has made that SO easy.

They have signature styles that I can easily purchase and add to mix and match into my collection.  The leggings are seriously AMAZEBALLZ. SO soft.

I love that you can stay classic with solids but that they also have fun prints too! Styles range from comfortable to work place classy so there really is something for everyone.

Many pieces work for breastfeeding and could easily transition into pregnancy wardrobe.  WHICH I LOVE.  There are very few “pregnancy” pieces that I purchased because I love things that have more than one use.  This brand is perfect for that!

For those of you unsure about sizing, consultants are great at helping.  For reference I am 5’2″ and about 115-120lbs. Also, for the busty girls I am a DD-DDD just to help you out.

Okay first off here are the leggings.  I am an OS.  I have not tried tween yet but I think I maybe able to wear them. These are what LLR is known for.  They are so soft and flattering!

leggings

The Nicole: This is my favorite dress! It is so flattering but so comfy! Also, it is easy to nurse in. Something that many of my pre-baby dress are NOT.  So this has been a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  I am an XS.

The Amelia: Oh this dress is so fun! It has a great zipper detail and you can wear the zipper in the front or the back! It also has pockets!  I am wearing an XS.

img_5906

The Carly: A very comfy and versatile dress.  You can style it a TON of ways.  You can pull this dress off around town with some chucks on or heals for a date night! I am wearing an XXS.

The Cassie: A fun skirt.  Great for work! It has the stretch of leggings but looks so professional.  It is so comfortable too not tight and constricting like most skirts! I am an XS but could do a Small as well.

img_5682

The Lindsay is a fun layering piece since it is a kimono.  This has been perfect for wearing with nursing tops! This is a small.  If they made it in XS I would probably get that but alas they don’t.

img_6241

The Classic Tee [Left]: Love this shirt to wear with leggings or to rock with a pair of jeans! I am wearing and XS.

The Irma [Right]: A wonderful tunic top.  Can wear a ton of ways! I am wearing an XXS.  I will say I have a few of these and the back length varies a little bit but all are pretty long!

**I also have a maxi skirt not pictured that is an XS.

Here are links to my FAVORITE consultants! Be sure to tell them how you found out about LLR.  If you have questions let me know and I would be happy to help!

Pregnancy Style Recap

As my due date approaches I wanted to get a recap up of what I wore and some style tips during pregnancy.  I think one of the best pieces of advice I took was don’t be afraid to wear pre-pregnancy clothes and incorporate them into your pregnancy pieces.

There are some non-negotiable pregnancy pieces for me.  Leggings and jeans that go over the belly.  Everyone is different but I couldn’t get comfortable (in later pregnancy) with elastic/waistbands digging into my lower tummy.

Pictures and items will be list left to right, top row than bottom row.

Versatile [pregnancy] Style

Style and function is something that I have been looking for when I enter the new mom world.  Harper and Bay came across on my instagram account and I fell in love!

This dress not only works now during my pregnancy days but it has cute zippers to make breast feeding easy! I will probably even wear it when I am out of those seasons of life!  I have heard over and over again from my mom friends that finding clothes that make breast feeding easy can be hard to find… Especially dresses! These are seriously so perfect and Harper and Bay carries great on trend styles!

**In the top right picture you can see one of the TINY zipper pulls to unzip.  It zips between the light pink and dark pink**

PS I can’t wait to repost on this dress after baby Tripp makes his debut!

OOTD: Date Night

Right now we are cherishing the moments of being a family of two before the bambino arrives.  We decided to treat ourselves to a date night at one of our Fort Worth favorites; Eddie V’s.

We actually just sat in the Lounge (aka the bar) and listened to a great jazz band while enjoying several appetizers, wine (for hubby) and dessert (for me) .

I finally am starting to “show” a little bit so clothes are actually looking less awkward… at least I think so. Here is a recap:

From work to work out

Athliesure wear is a fun trend right now in fashion and I am ALL about it.  With how busy our lives are I love that there are options of fashion that can take you from the office to the gym and you look good at both places! Plus, it saves time and money having clothes that serve a dual role.

So I partnered up with one of my favorite boutiques again Tiger Lily to help showcase athliesure wear!
