    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,…

    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!

    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…
