I’m just about 4 days into my 14th week of pregnancy but I look like I’m in well into my 6 month.  I’ve outgrown most of my clothes so I decided to buy the BeBand to get a few more wears out of them and it worked but I wanted to be even comfier. 🙂   So, I  started looked  for comfy outfit inspiration from some of my favorite celeb mamas and I immediately found a ton and most of them included a maxi dress.  Below is my version of the gray maternity maxi dress seen on Jessica Alba, Vanessa Lachey and Jessica Simpson.

What I’m Wearing: Munrow Maxi Dress   c/o Shop Bop and it’s 50% off right now | American Eagle Distressed Denim Jacket (also see here) |  Green Suede Belt c/o Kohl’s (similar version here) | Rebekah Minkoff Sandals c/o Shop Bop | Phillip Lim for Target Tote

Shawl Collar sweaters (especially long ones) have a understated elegance that I’ve always adored.  I have a few in different colors but I don’t get to wear them as often as I’d like down here in Florida.  They instantly give an outfit a refined look that’s perfect for any outfit!  Tip: keep bottoms fitted and don’t be afraid to layer with other long pieces for a boho-esque feel.

Sunday Morning Shopping: Phillip Lim for Target & The Maternity BeBand

After going to 3 different Target stores I finally found the bag I was looking for: the Phillip Lim large tote bag.  I also wanted to buy the sparkle sweater but they only had a extra small so I decided to check online and They did have it in my size but I decided to buy  the medium brown satchelinstead.  While at Target I also took a peek at their maternity section and bought the BeBand. I’ve been meaning to buy one these bands for a couple of weeks but I never got around to it till today. This little band is amazing and now I can wear ALL of my favorites jeans, shorts and tops that are starting to get a bit short.  It’s a lifesaver.  I will be posting some outfit pics and how the band actually works soon.  Did you score your favorite Phillip Lim for Target piece?

How can you not love this outfit?  So adorable how Jessica Alba paired her feminine skirt with a cropped chunky knit sweater and sexy heels….perfection! Tip: not into the cropped sweater? Swap it out with a crew neck pull over and maybe even let a white shirt peek out underneath.  Great outfit for the upcoming holiday season.

Be Yourself, Together #TargetWedding

September 12, 2013 by

When I first met my husband he was dressed like he just jumped out of the Delorean in the Back to the Future movie: So 1980’s!  He was wearing a leather jacket with the sleeves rolled up and tight jeans that landed about an inch above his glossy white sneakers. While little ‘ol me was decked out with an eclectic mix of boho and glam pieces selected from a least a dozen second hand shops around the Village. We were complete opposites. But as they say, sometimes opposites attract!

Perhaps that’s why I am so enamored with Target’s Wedding Registry under the theme “Be Yourself, Together,”  which embraces two people joining forces while celebrating their unique individuality to create a beautiful life together.  Target’s wedding registry line is nothing short of inspirational with a huge selection – from traditional picks for the home to fun, non-traditional items –  making it easy and stress free to pick the right gift.

To help interpret Target’s wedding theme, I was asked to pick out two different gifts, that when put together, represented both uniqueness and harmony.  For me, I would get the Panasonic camera to take pictures for my blog and a tent for my husband so we can escape on that camping trip he’s always talking about.   While he is pretending to be on Duck Dynasty I can take pictures for an upcoming post.

Coleman Flatwoods 4 Person Tent

It doesn’t get better than that! Two gift’s that really can be benefit from one other just like a newlywed couple.  And that is the beauty of Target’s Wedding theme “Be Yourself, Together” and their amazing wedding registry selection.  Follow all the wedding fun by checking out #TargetWedding.

10 Must Have Bags for Fall Under $100

September 9, 2013 by  
Filed under Accessories

I own a ton (and I mean a TON) of bags, but each season I only have about 3 on heavy rotation: a classic black satchel, a tote of some sort and a crossbody that also works as a clutch. Why do I only use 3 bags when I own about 3 dozens?  It’s part laziness, part being a creature of habit and a dash of always wanting to wear something new even though I have bags sitting in my closet with tags on lol.  I’m working on it 🙂  This fall i’m looking for bags in a deep red aka burgundy, something with metal details like studs and a funky crossbody bag.  Check out some bags that I’ve been eyeing.
