ROCK THE BUMP: The Caftan

For my second installment of ROCK THE BUMP (see the first installment HERE), I am featuring a SUMMER MUST HAVE.  What is THE staple every preggo (and NON-preggo) should have in her closet?  THE CAFTAN.   What exactly is a caftan?

WOWZERS!!!  Can you guys believe I have reached the 6 months mark?  WHERE in the WORLD has the time gone?  I am now officially freaking out about everything we have yet to do.  Yes, I have a precious Pinterest page with all sorts of inspiration, but we have not purchased a SINGLE thing.  We are headed out on our BABYMOON (yay!) soon, so hopefully, there will be plenty of time by the pool to get some things ordered.  Also, stay tuned for my 1st Trimester MUST HAVES coming soon!  THANK YOU ALL for the fabulous advice you gave me at my…

Hello dolls!  I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!!  Looks like the cold [and maybe some snow] is headed back this way.  Bring. on. spring!  But in the meantime, I have THE PERFECT winter outfit to show y’all.  Everytime I wear this sweater, I get so many compliments.  Not only is it super cute, but it is extremely comfy and very versatile.  It can be dressed down or dressed UP, and it’s perfect this time of year.  Of course, in these pictures I paired it with my favorite leather leggings [that I now own in 3 colors.  OOPS.], my go-to Janessa…
