When I first saw this dress, it was pre baby bump and I loved the idea of a crisp white dress for spring and summer. Plus, this price point is just too good to be true {$75!}. I was relieved that it worked for my growing bump and loved the simplistic feeling when paired with black accessories {when do those not make an outfit???}. I feel like I look like I am ready to stroll the summer streets of Paris.

stripes and neck scarves


After watching the pilot episode of 'Gossip Girl' I got inspired by Serena van der Woodsen style. No, not revealing ball gowns walking down 5th Ave in the middle of the day, but my all time favorite look on anyone: effortless.

Her Grand Central style has me inspired to pull out my vintage pucci scarf and wear it with my favorite pregnant friendly stripes and my all time favorite striped tee {I have it in every color!}

As seen on Instagram, we have exciting news!!!

There is a reason that posts have been sporadic and my Instagram feed sometimes takes days between photos. I am expecting! 

{I thought it was fairly obvious with this post, but made sure to make it Instagram official with this photo.} 

I even had a friend ask, "What is with all the peplum tops? Is Baby #2 happening?" as seen here, here and here {I thought I was being sneaky!}.

It has been a pure joy, blessing and extremely exhausting. I am having the best time being a mom to a curious, sweet, perfectly angelic and amazingly wise 16 month old. I am extremely excited to see her as a big sister in the fall and to share this journey with you!

I am in the works to add a "Momma Friendly" department to my boutique as maternity wear can be a...challenge. And I plan to start a mom series soon as I get many questions about my favorite gear, wears and essentials and am excited to learn more about being a momma to two under 2!

I remember when I wouldn't be caught in a one piece {hellos 17!} but now, I can't get enough. They are no longer for the over 50 or overweight. There are endless options and I love that they are chic and a fun mix up from the traditional bikini. {This orange mesh one piece and navy and white cutout one piece are my favorites!}

Pinterest Tuesday : trademark statement

anna wintour statement necklace

While Anna Wintour is a fashion icon for her mere influence {the come back of Birkenstocks, anyone?}, I can get behind any women with a trademark look that is all her own. 

And Mrs. Wintour is my inspiration for not giving up on my favorite way to dress up a basic tee or outfit: a great statement necklace. While hers might be real gemstones, I don't mind that mine aren't and I have even rounded up some of the best below. {I picked up this iridescent crystal motif necklace and this lemon crystal necklace, as seen on Instagram.}

white pleated top


You can sense a theme in my recent shopping. Perfect for spring and summer : budget friendly white pleated tops.




striped top and pink skirt


This mirror selfie was taken when I was trying to find something to wear for a recent baby shower. This skirt and top are old, but I found similar options for you below as I always love pink and stripes together. 





chambray and white skinny jeans


Total mom outfit. And I love this chambray: super soft, oversized and the perfect acid wash.

While we don't live in a location where my cashmere gets a ton of use, the second I feel chilly, I find an excuse to wear it. This oversized gray cashmere sweater is so cozy but the sleeves are slim making it not too frumpy. I wear it as often as I can.

new bedding

Applique Monogrammed Shams

Orange Applique Monogrammed Shamsmonogrammed guest towels

Navy Applique Monogrammed Shams

I have been itching to redo our bedding. 

We have monogrammed bedding in a lovely shade of hydrangea blue with two standard shams, king pillow cases and standard pillows. I love that the monogrammed extra long king size pillows peak out from behind the shams, but I have been craving for a change of scenery.

I stumbled across this lovely Etsy store and immediately placed a custom order {ask for pricing. I got a great discount due to multiple monogrammed items}. Emily, the store owner,  also recommended a great combination that she knows will look great in the color that will look best in the monogram I chose. 

I wish I had found this amazing shop before I ordered these navy sheets {monogrammed, of course!} as I love these scalloped monogrammed sheets. I have already added them to my cart if I decide I need a back up set. 

Check out Southern Linens Blog, Facebook and Instagram @SouthernLinens.



Stay tuned for a 'Before and After' post when my new purchases arrive!

While this outfit is just a jeans and t-shirt, it is a super girly take on a super simple outfit. 

If you follow along on Instagram, then you have already seen me tell you that this peplum t-shirt is awesome. But seriously, its amazing. Cozy, cute and budget friendly, I have promptly ordered it in every color.
