SHIRT Zara • VEST La Marque • HAT Janessa Leone • SHOES Chloe Gladiators A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit somewhere I have never been: LA!!!!  Can you believe I have never been there?  Let me just tell you…I LOVED IT and was ready to move to Lala Land!  The hubs was not too keen on that idea.  Although I did not have a TON of free time…pretty much one dinner and half a day, I definitely made the best of it.  It also ended up being a super productive trip in terms of baby-prep.  I visited this SUPER…

BUMPDATE: 29 WEEKS

Well, HELLO 3rd trimester!!!  Wow, what an awesome journey it has been so far!  I feel so lucky to be carrying this sweet bambino in my tummy and CANNOT wait to meet Baby Lutz.  Baby is moving oh so much, AND we got to see that sweet face earlier this week.  I think he/she has Ryan’s lips!  This makes me so happy, because he definitely has the prettiest lips.  😉  SO, let’s cut to the chase and get to the BUMPDATES! How far along: 29 weeks, 1 day!  SO CLOSE!! Cravings: Absolutely zero cravings!  Diet is normal!  Weeeeeelll, actually, I do love chips.  But…

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…

BUMPDATE: 21 Weeks

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…

Bumpdate: 17 Weeks

Wow, I cannot believe it has been 3 weeks since my last update!  Time is flying by!  As you can see from the pictures above that was me at 14 weeks (can’t believe I am putting my bare belly on the internet) compared to me now at 17 weeks.  So much has changed, but overall I feel awesome.  Now that the Lutz Bump is in action, look for more ways to #stylethebump.  I am not going to lie, maternity fashion is MUCH harder than I expected.  I am trying to stay true to what I love, but these body changes…
