Oh my third trimester..... it makes getting dressed a little tricky. My go to is denim a tank and a kimono. I call this my "resort" wear look. From a resort like Sun Valley pictured here to our upcoming trip to an old little hole in the wall resort in Priest Lake Idaho this is my go to outfit. It is simple and makes you look more put together without trying.
Welp this isn't your typical Nordstrom anniversary sale blog post today. I did add some wrap dresses currently on sale for the Nordstrom sale and I also added a few things I bought. I wasn't planning on doing too much shopping this year but I ended up finding more than I excepted to! But this blog post isn't about that, it is all about the wrap dress. I love the rise of the wrap dress this past few seasons, I can't believe the wrap dress was only invented in 1974 by Diane von Furstenberg. Diane knew what she was doing because this dress is so flattering and versatile. I think the wrap dress truly compliments most body types and works great with pregnancy. This dress isn't a maternity but as you can see you can wear this dress pregnant or not!
I've said this before but I so prefer being pregnant in the summer than the winter. Mind you I haven't had the 100 degree days but I have been loving the clothes and all the summer fruit. I really wanted to buy a few summer dresses, thankfully my girlfriend gave me 10 hand me downs of her old pregnancy ones but I wanted a tighter one. I ordered a few different ones but couldn't justify spending $120 on a black pregnancy dress. Until I found this dress, which happens to be 25% off, only $60 and reversible.
Father's Day is fast approaching and we teamed up yet again for a fun day at Columbia Center Mall. This time Jay got spoiled as the entire day was about picking out Father's Day gifts for Jay. Not only do I have some good gift ideas for you but I'm also doing an amazing giveaway. You can enter it at the bottom of this post.
It is shorts seasons, I mean the last month has been shorts seasons but I'm finally getting around to sharing with you a few of my favorite shorts. I have been able to wear all my low waisted shorts still but my high waisted ones have gone back into the drawer for the rest of the summer. I am sharing with you some of my favorite summer shorts that are "mom" appropriate!
So I am still not in maternity clothes yet I don't know if that is out of being stubborn or what. I tried a pair of maternity jeans on this week and they stretchy part that goes over your tummy didn't fit over mine. So I think I'm sticking to my anti maternity clothes policy for a few more weeks. When it comes to dresses I like to look for non maternity dresses I can wear all the time. I hate buying dresses that are maternity specific. I didn't realize when I was buying this dress it was an empire waist but once I got it on I really enjoyed the cut.
Mother's Day is right around the corner.... Sunday! I can't believe I will be celebrating my 3rd Mother's Day. I have done all types of Mother's Day thus far, our first Mother's Day we were flying home from Arizona with a 3 month old (not the most fun). The second Mother's Day we were in Vegas sans kids and this Mother's Day Jay is working and we will be relaxing at home. Since Jay works he decided to make me my "Mother's Day" dinner a week early. So this Mother's Day will be a bit more quiet, but that sounds perfect to me. I also took a little time to spoil myself at Columbia Center Mall in Tri-Cities.
Holy Smokes it has been in the 80's for the last week or so, it is unseasonably warm but I'll take it. So shorts and dresses have made their way out of the back of the closets. So the time has naturally come to talk about dresses and more specifically for me and for all you Mom's with little kids maxi dresses. I loved wearing shorter dresses before, but now that I am bending down constantly with a toddler that isn't an option. My shorter dresses are saved for date nights and maxi dresses are this Mom's jam.
I think the one thing that is going to be so hard for me during this pregnancy is not being able to wear rompers and jumpsuits. I am a jumpsuit kinda gal and maternity jumpsuits just AREN'T CUTE. They have just been my thing since day 1 when they became popular. So nonetheless when I saw this one at Anthropolgie I wanted it. But after wearing it for these photos I learned that this isn't going to stretch and isn't pregnancy friendly so sadly it got returned. But for all you non pregnant people I suggest trying a striped jumpsuit this season.
I'm here to talk real quick about spring and early summer jackets. I love a good spring and summer jacket. I mean the jean jacket is a staple in my closet but I have been seeing more patterns and print this season and wanted to go over a few of my favorites this year.
