ROCK THE BUMP: Mara!

Yall, I have been LIVING in Mara Hoffman since getting pregnant (and my La Marque fringe of course). Her stretchy, body-con dresses are PERFECT for rockin’ the bump. You can dress them up, down, or all around. Not only will you look super fab in her colorful designs, but you will feel comfy AND stylish.  Comfy AND stylish?  You don’t get that very often.  And that’s the name of the game when it comes to pregnancy! TIP: Go up 1 (or 2) sizes to get the most wear out of the dresses throughout your pregnancy. She has both long and short…

CHAMPAGNE TASTE + BEER BUDGET?

Well, isn’t THAT the truth!  I think this is something we can ALL relate to!  It seems I am always looking for something CHAMPAGNE but on a BEER BUDGET.  Well, I have some awesome news!  Think back to around Christmas time.  Remember the shopping/foodie trip to ATL that the hubs and I took?   If you recall, I was actually pregnant and did not know it, as we ate and shopped our way through Atlanta.  I featured some amazing over-the-knee boots and a TO-DIE for Rebecca Minkoff FRINGE Cross-Body bag.  One of the posts from this trip was titled OVER IT…
