Traveling Treasures

September 3, 2014

Whenever we travel, I like to pick up treasures along the way. It makes the idea of the trip last a little longer, and certain items in my closet remind me of fond memories from our adventure for a long time to come. This trip happened to be full of great little finds everywhere we went. Continue Reading…

Babywearing Style

I haven’t done a style post since the middle of my pregnancy. You see, I’ve been in a bit of a slump. For months I didn’t like my hair so I cut it, and then I didn’t know what to do with this shorter length. It’s also been a challenge to figure out a makeup routine that revolves around a baby. Plus, my body is a little different than it used to be. Though it probably shouldn’t have, this all sort of took me by surprise. Continue Reading…

Dressing the Bump :: Stripes and Tulle

What do you wear to an outside wedding when you’re nearly seven months pregnant? A tulle skirt, of course! Neither of these are maternity purchases…I’m becoming a pro at making my regular clothes work for my new shape. And it’s way more fun than I thought it would be! I bought this skirt when I was still at Philanthropy, and I love it. It’s one of those pieces that instantly makes you feel fancy and super girly. I paired it with my favorite striped top, a vintage belt, and heels appropriate for walking around in the grass. It was a truly magical evening, and one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever attended. I don’t have any pictures from the wedding, but my friend Eden was the photographer, so maybe if she blogs about it I’ll post a link!

Dressing the Bump :: Lace and Leather Boots

I love that I actually look pregnant now! No more mistaking the growing baby for a growing beer gut. We took these in our back yard, and I’m ashamed to say we’ve been absolutely terrible about taking belly pictures through the process. As long as we have a few from the beginning, middle and end, we’ll be good…right?! I hope so.

This dress was a pre-maternity purchase, and it was always a little big so it fits me perfectly now! Without the belt it would look like a mumu, as would most loose-fitting things right now, so this thrifted Etienne Aigner belt has been getting plenty of wear these days! I wore this to attend an outdoor event in East Nashville called the Red Barn Roundup. It’s hosted in this fabulous couple’s backyard, and has amazing live music, plenty of food, and lots to drink. They have it about once a month, and we’ll definitely be going back! I love Nashville.

Dressing the Bump :: Polka Dot Skirt

Sometimes the best solutions are the easiest. I bought this skirt at the thrift store a few weeks ago. It was a dress originally, and all I had to was carefully cut the top off, and voila! It was an instant elastic waisted skirt. The tank was another pre-pregnancy purchase, and it’s almost to the point of not fitting anymore, but it worked great for tucking in! I’ve slowed down on wearing heels in my pregnancy, though they do instantly make me feel a million times better. So I pull them out on days when I’m feeling my frumpiest.

Starring in my pictures are Bowser (the white dog) and Flower (the black dog). We were house and pet sitting for some friends awhile ago, and they just wanted to be part of the action. Who was I to say no?
