Maternity Part Two: Outfit inspiration

Thank goodness for Pinterest and outfit inspiration no matter what your season of life.  Today I'm sharing a few maternity outfits that would be easy to recreate.  

When selecting maternity pieces, I think its best to stick with neutral colors that can be mixed and matched.  Stock up on the basics- jeans, white tees and basic dresses.  Then invest in all that good stuff that can be worn after... scarves, necklaces, shoes, and lots of open cardigans!

Maternity Part One: Favorite Finds

I am currently pregnant with my 3rd child and this baby was a huge surprise!  

Basically I thought we were 'done' so I got rid of everything. And now I get to re-buy all new maternity clothes.  Bittersweet I guess... because I doubt anyone would want to see me wearing my maternity jeans from 2009 (I remember they were flares and they were baggy... lol!)  

Needless to say, I've been shopping a lot the last couple weeks and I have some amazing maternity clothing finds for you!

1.  Jeans: I've bought a lot the last few months and have failed. (EH....why do maternity jeans never stay up??)  But these Madewell ones felt like I was putting on an old friend.  Comfy, good stretch and they aren't falling down, yay!  Bonus they are on a huge sale. I also love how they don't look like your typical maternity jeans so I can totally wear them after.

2.  Workout leggings: of course these are the best.  They fit nicely over my belly and stretch sooo good.

3.  T-shirts: Loving these Target v-necks.  I keep buying them in every color.  They hold their shape and are perfect for layering.  I sized up and was glad because they seemed to shrink a tad.

4.  Sweater: This one is my favorite so far.  Not maternity but totally works!

5.  Dresses:  I have fallen in love with Pink Blush Maternity.  I ordered this dress and this dress. Cute, flattering and easy!  And when I'm pregnant I'm all about easy!

6.  Sweats:  Let's be honest, I am in sweats any chance I get and I LOVE these.  I sized up 2 sizes (I wanted them to be comfy) and I'm so happy I did.

Perfect Rooms for little boys

I've been working on my 3-year-old son's room for a few months.  And when I say working I mean ordering things, storing them in the garage, in their unopened original boxes. I know... who does that? But I need to paint his new room and do a whole switch around of my kid's rooms. It's gonna be a process, but I'm ready to get started.  

This week I stumbled upon Jennifer Barron Interiors website and fell in love.  She is such a talented designer and I especially love the spaces she has designed for little boys rooms. Lots of inspiration and definently the vibe I'm seeking for my son's room.

Motherhood

Happy Friday!  I got back this week from Maui where my husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary.  And as much as I loved the vacation, I loved coming home.  It felt good to see my kids and dig my heels a little deeper into this life my husband and I have created.  I've been thinking about motherhood and appreciating it a little more.

I wanted to share this quote I saw on Pinterest the other day: 

"Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how big it really is." 

Have a great weekend.  You have my permission to book a trip, get-away from your kids, and re-charge your mommy batteries!  xo

Friday Favorites

1. Giant circle necklace?  Yes, please.  Found something similar on Etsy.

2. That gold knot bracelet is pretty great, too. Kate Spade has a good option here.

3. Anyone else's garden out of control?  You have to try this tomato soup!  Freeze it, and enjoy your garden all winter. SOOOOOO good.

4.  I've decided this is my dream kitchen. I can't believe what it looked like before.

5.  Loving these black booties for fall and this jacket.  If only the weather would cool down for me ;).

Flora

Have you heard of Jenny's print shop?  A beautiful collection of artwork and it is so easy to get them in your home.  You pick your print, download it, and print it yourself locally.  And the price is amazing!  Most the prints are around $15.

Flora (above photo) is my favorite print.  Those flowers are GORGEOUS!  But I also love this one, this one, and this one.

Such a great resource if you're looking to freshen up your home!

Friday Favorites

Hey, Gals!  I feel like its been forever since I've done a Friday Favorites and I have LOTS on my mind. School started this week and I am loving getting in the back of swing of things.  I've been deep cleaning and organizing and re-discovering my routine. As much as I love the carefreeness of summer, the structure is feeling GOOD.

Picked these bins up at Target last week for $5 (they are a tad more this week) and organized that "top space" of my kid's closets.  These baskets look so pretty, hold tons of stuff and you can't beat the price.

Natalie Borton does denim on denim soooo good (photo above). Recreate with this top, these  jeans, and this bag.

Love cleaning my floors with this and getting my dishes extra clean with this.

I think I'll do a post soon about my favorite back to school clothes....but for now, loving this bell sleeve dress for my daughter and these polos for my son.

Mama needs back to school shoes too.  Am I right?  After seeing Lisa Allen look so cute in her Old Skool Vans, I had to order a pair.

A couple weeks ago I shared this article Deep Thoughts on Stay-at-Home-Motherhood.  Liz just published a follow-up Q&A.  Check it out- part one, part two

Obsessed with the Home Edit, I keep getting lost in their Instagram. It's sooo good.
