My First Mother’s Day + Gift Ideas

I know, I know. I was a mother when I was pregnant but this year is so special having Tripp in my arms to snuggle and hug(he was born TWO days after Mother’s Day last year). These last few years Mother’s Day has honestly been very sad. It is hard watching so many people celebrate with their mom and you don’t get to do that.

I love that this year has brought new meaning to this holiday. I am so thankful that God chose Tripp to be my little one. He has shown me unconditional love that I have never known. He has taught me to be more carefree and less uptight. He has taught me patience and understanding and that with one little grin that he can get out of a lot of trouble.

I can’t wait to spend this Mother’s Day with my little family. Really that is the best gift of all BUT if you were to ask me some fun gift ideas for moms here is what I would suggest!

Pampering is ALWAYS a good idea for mom so a massage or mani/pedi gift card are safe bets! Click to photos below for direct links!

For the clean freak like me
Roomba

For the techie:
Apple Watch

For the Fashionista
Tory Burch Clutch

For the jewelry lover
Kendra Scott Necklace

For the mom’s who need ALL the coffee
Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System

What is on your Mother’s Day list?

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!

Dress Duo

I am so excited to partner up with one of my favorite boutiques for this post (and hopefully more in the future)!  Tiger Lily is located in Stillwater, OK. However, don’t let that sway you they are great at custom orders and keeping customers updated about what they have in store.  OR if you have a picture of something you like send it their way and they can help get it for you.

They sell quality products for great prices. Great candles, clothes, accessories and more! Today I am going to style two dresses with the same accessories. I am going for a more casual look but as you can see in the collage two beautiful ladies are sporting the dresses with a night out look so they are VERY versatile! newoutfit
