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.

Blazer Series: Part 2

 

 

Since I started this series I decided I should publish a little “How to” for blazers.  They are so versatile but sometimes that can be really overwhelming when creating an outfit.  So here ya go!

picstitch

Step One: Blazing it up. Find a great structured blazer.  If you don’t have one already I would recommend black or navy as they are very neutral and can go with many blouse options.

Step Two: Top of your game. A soft blouse/ t-shirt or sleeveless shirt to go under the blazer. For a more casual occasion I go with a plain t-shirt and for a dressier occasion a blouse. Feel free to spice it up with a pattern or a bright color! Just remember your shoes and accessories will need to compliment one another.

Step Three: A mean jean. A well fitting pair of jeans.  Remember jeans can be colored or regular.  Whatever you feel most comfortable in or whatever color is suiting your mood! I prefer a dark wash denim with my black blazer. It gives it that dressed up crisp look. But when I am going more casual a light wash jean is my “go-to”.

Step Four: Pump it up.  A nice pump really helps balance the jean and blazer look.  Gives you classy and edgy look. Go for a fun color (magenta) or pattern (leopard)!

Step Five: Bling, Bling.  A statement necklace is the icing on this outfit.  If you haven’t gone bold with your shoes, or top here is where you can make your impact.

Step Six: Show em’ what you got.  Have fun in your new outfit!

Wine Weekend

  wine This weekend I am venturing to Fredericksburg, TX for a wine weekend Bachlorette party! I am SO excited for a little getaway!  However, packing is a fun challenge to take on [not].  Here are some of my tips and tricks and my fun picks for this weekend! The key is to have items that can be used multiple ways.  This gives you more options but with less bulk in your duffel!  Also, choose items that can mix easily (basic colors). First off the perfect bag: vb

Vera Bradley [Grand Travler]

Here are some of my ideal outfit combos!

outfit 1

I love Chambray tops because they can be used in so many ways! This is a comfy cool look for the car ride to over and will be perfect to wear to the casual dinner we are going to that evening!

outfit3

I wanted an outfit that could go from day to night.  This is the day for wine tours so I figured I can throw my sandals in my bag and either dress it up or dress it down! I also get cold easily so throw in the chambray shirt for a bit of warmth but not adding bulk to the bag I carry!  You might notice the repeat of the maxi skirt from above.  Thats because it is a convertible dress/skirt… BRILLIANT!

Outfit 3 is for a little fancier dinner out.  I am OBSESSED with this look! Such fun summer colors!
