As a mom, and a pregnant one at that, I am all about easy dressing. 

Living in Southern California, that normally means throwing on a dress or pairing my favorite stripes with some denim. When this beautiful, and super soft mint green floral dress showed up on my doorstep, I immediately threw it on. I can't do laundry fast enough {for you mom readers, you know this is a never ending mom job}! PinkBlush has the best maternity wear at amazing price points, I have told all my expectant friends about it and am honored to have them on the blog!

Luckily for you, they are offering one lucky navy & orange reader a $75 gift card! While I am in love with all their amazing maternity wear, they have adorable non-maternity clothes too. The winner will be announced in this blog post on Sunday, so make sure to check back.

Have you seen the update boutique???

When you click the "Shop" button on the top navigation bar or the "SHOP MY STYLE" icon on the sidebar, you will be updated to the new and improved boutique! I have been getting a ton of question and emails about great maternity wear so there is a "Mommy Friendly" section. Think outside of the obvious maternity wear and shop cute flowy, bump friendly tops that you will want to wear even if you aren't pregnant, trying or even sure if you want kids. Plus, I love to find things that will work now for my growing bump and later for nursing.

But if are pregnant, like me, don't miss the amazing maternity jeans. I just purchased the two pairs mentioned above and they are cheaper than a designer pair, so I might even be tempted to get a third...

Even if you aren't a mom, there is an updated "Favorites" section that I add to weekly of anything that I find that makes me think of how to add it to my closet.

Don't miss the "Beauty" and "Home" sections too!

instagram roundup

hatch striped tee


This photo was from a super relaxing Saturday. With endless family plans, travel plans and weddings, my little family took advantage of a recent Saturday with nothing to do. Naturally, we went to my favorite bakery for lunch and walked around my hometown of Rancho Santa Fe. 




blush ferragamo

I bought this blush Ferragamo on a whim but I have been surprised how much use I get out of it. I have worn it without the chain as a clutch and as an easy purse alternative with the chain as it has the perfect wallet slots for credit cards and ID and enough space for your phone and lipgloss. And in this delicious shade of blush, it goes with everything and adds the perfect feminine touch to any mom outfit. 

While I know the bag is expensive, I found a couple of similar blush bags below at friendlier prices. 



blazer and jeans


I was very proud of myself for this non-mom, non-maternity mom/ maternity friendly outfit. The only thing that is maternity is the jeans. This navy tiered top {I sized up} has been perfect for the bump. It is totally something that I would have purchased without a baby bump. {plus, its currently on sale!}



straw fedora and ray-bans


This straw fedora was an impulse purchase from the ShopBop sale, but I wear it at least twice a week! It is big enough to keep me in the shade, but not too big that it is oversized. Plus at that price point, I had to get this one too! { Size Note: I have a very large head and a Medium was perfect. I normally have to get hats that have L/XL sizing, but this one must run big. }

BeautyCounter

Have you heard of BeautyCounter?

When I became a mom, everything became more important to me. Health, our country and of course, my own little family. Through my mom group, I got introduced to BeautyCounter and realized that some of the products that I had been lathering on my body for as long as I can remember, contained extremely toxic chemicals. 

With countless types of cancer prevalent in my family, I began to research what was in the products that I trusted. I realized that my favorite face wash that I had been using since a teenager, my drugstore purchased shampoo and my favorite SPF daily face lotion all had toxic chemicals that have been linked to birth defects and cancers. As I was breastfeeding at the time, I immediately switched up my regimen. 

Now being pregnant, and a BeautyCounter addict, I am so thankful for the mom who turned me onto this amazing company. Not only are they developing new products everyday, {I am in love with their new baby line!}, but they are innovative in trying to get legislation to pass laws to restrict what harmful chemicals can be in our products.

How great is that?

A company that 1.) has amazing products 2.) has healthy amazing products and 3.) is actually trying to make the world a better place by protecting its customers.

While I know being a North County San Diego mom fits me into a certain demographic  {my daughter eats no sugar, has never had ice cream, cookies or cake and I make about 90% of her food}, and whehter or not you agree with my "type" of mom,  I  couldn't not share these amazing products with all of you!

Whether you like to be labeled as "health conscience"or not, BeautyCounter has high preforming products that are safe!

My current favorites are :

Top: LAYERED TEE // Jeans: J BRAND SKINNY JEANS non-maternity // Bag: NAVY SAINT LAURENT SAC De JOUR // Shoes: // Sunglasses: RAY-BAN AVIATORS // Necklace: KENDRA SCOTT ELISA c/o // Bracelets: HERMES H BANGLE // DAVID YURMAN BANGLE



When I first came across this top, I thought it would be the idea summer top: navy, white and easy to throw on. When it arrived, I thought that would be the perfect non-maternity maternity top! For mommas-to-be and non-moms alike, this top is a funky way of mixing up your closet. I love the knit top and the way it balances out my baby bump with my favorite skinny jeans. At five months pregnant, I think that this will be the last time to wear my non maternity jeans!

Have you checked out the new updated boutique? Click the "Shop" button at the top of the header or the "Shop My Style" icon on the right sidebar to be directed to the navy & orange boutique. I have updated it with great non-maternity maternity finds in the 'Mommy Friendly' section.

As I recently have been helping some clients with their spring cleaning, I have been around some amazing pieces. A recent client wanted to sell some of her amazing Valentino pieces, including their the Lock Bag. And now, this bag has snuck to the top of my wish list! I am currently in love with this Blush Valentino Lock Bag.

bridal fashion week







As wedding season is in full swing, I just had to share my favorite Instagram images from Bridal Fashion Week! We had a wedding this last weekend and two more in the next month. Even though my wedding was almost five {5!} years ago, I still love anything bridal and have been known to purchase a wedding magazine or two.

Follow my favorite Bridal Instagrams below, from where I borrowed these exquisite images.

matte red lips and denim ruffle


As this was my most popular post from last year and spring is officially here, I had to repost!

While this amazing $26 top is no longer available, there are some great alternatives that are equally amazing. If you are dead set on this look, this off the shoulder denim dress is the dress replica and this white off the shoulder top is the same look in a spring and summer friendly white. {If I didn't have a baby bump, I would totally order this blush off the shoulder top with ruffle sleeves. It is just too cute and only $51!}.
