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…

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? The caftan is a magical, elegant, flowing garment made of luscious printed cotton or silk, which instantly transforms the wearier into a truly ethereal creature. (definition credit: xojane) During my mission to avoid all things maternity for as long as possible, I started purchasing caftans left and right.  You can pair with shorts or jeans, over a body-con dress,…

BUMPDATE: 24 WEEKS

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…

ROCK THE BUMP: FRINGE + RIPS

Oh hi!  I hope everyone is having a GREAT week!  I have been in the Boston area all week for work and am now jet-setting to Napa to meet the hubs.  YAY!  And what better time to kick off my new series: ROCK THE BUMP!  In an effort to inspire your most stylish bump, I will be compiling a collection of not-so-maternity, maternity options.  And the great news??  You don’t have to be preggo to wear these styles.  I have been avoiding traditional maternity clothes like the plague, so these options will work for anyone! Right now, I am all…

Hey guys!  I hope everyone had a great week!  And just like that, we are over halfway there.  So, it’s time for a bump update.  This picture was taken this week at 21 weeks, but my last doctor’s appointment was 3 weeks ago.  We had our anatomy scan, and everything looked great! How far along: 21 weeks + 1 day Cravings: No cravings really.  I still love grapes and apples…really anything sweet! Aversions: Nothing new to report.  I have not been in the mood for fish though. Diet: I am still about 80% Paleo.  I do splurge on dessert once a week and have…
