6 Month Update

Today marks 24 weeks of pregnancy for me.  It has been such a roller-coaster ride and I am feeling great after 20 weeks of not-so-fun morning all-day sickness.  Now, my main feeling is HUNGER! 🙂

I try to stay healthy by constantly keeping my tummy full on healthy snacks so I can maintain a healthy pregnancy.  Unfortunately, my energy level has not been great, especially with all this snow, to work out much but I am so looking forward to the spring and waddling around outside and being somewhat active!

I cannot wait to meet this little guy (it’s a boy!) and am looking forward to enjoying the rest of my pregnancy. I am really starting to feel kicks and movement and those moments are so precious to me.

New moms, I want to hear all your advice and tips for a mom-to-be.  Please share any and all helpful tips and thank you for reading! XXO

Also, stay tuned for my upcoming collab with Serene Sky Boutqiue, 5-Diamond Photography, and Beauty Entourage.  Below is a snapshot from in-between look book shots.

Suit up!

Although I very rarely dress in “traditional” business attire at the office, sometimes a crisp suit speaks volume. I am usually in dresses and mix & match blazers and skirts or pants, however when I decided to collaborate with Metrostyle, their classic attire suited me!

I loved the wide-leg pant on this suit, as well as the light and fresh gray color and one of my favorite things about this suit… it’s only $49.99!  You can shop the look here.

Also, while we are on the topic, I have shared my picks for office supplies.  An adorable mug, travel perfume, and cute items to carry around your electronics add a little more sparkle to the work day! What are your office essentials?

Sweaters & Leggings: Preggo Fashion

I apologize on my lack of posting; morning sickness and fatigue have gotten the best of me throughout this pregnancy. Now that I am about 17 weeks, I am hoping the sickness will pass and I will get some energy back!
I have been living in super stretchy pants and long sweaters.  Also, I finally got around to buying some maternity pants– they are so comfy.
I have been trying to stay active with simple exercises like walking and playing with my dog Zoey because I have had no energy to do any real workouts. These wedge sneakers give me both the height and comfort I am desiring while preggo.

Monday’s Look for Less

When is it okay to splurge and when can you get by with a steal? From lipstick colors to high-fashion designs, there are always options. Personally, I like to invest in “classics” such as a favorite handbag, favorite purse and splurge on a classic pair of boots. However, when I may be going for a more “trendy” piece, I try to save a little money and find alternatives to still look fabulous. Here is this week’s look for less!

Crushing on Crop Tops

The beauty of a crop top is it is not the 90’s belly shirt.. you don’t necessarily have to have a flat tummy to rock one.
Choose the right bottoms such as high-waist shorts or a flare skirt and anyone can rock a crop top. Contrary to what people may think, crop tops are actually very flattering on many body types because it bring attention to the ribcage, below the breasts and above the waists, which is usually the thinnest part of women’s (curvy or not!) bodies.
Have you rocked a crop top this summer?
