the best 4th of July Sales

The BEST Sales of the Weekend!

In love with this gingham peplum top. 

I got this and this which were both, surprisingly, bump friendly.

I bought this tee in every color. This line is great for mommas to be, as the tops are drapey and soft, just size up and amazing for nursing moms. Soft enough to wear all day and even to bed.

Who didn't fall in love with the bucket bag trend?

Well, I am happy to report that it quickly went from a trend to a style staple that I find to be timeless. It totally reminds me of a Louis Vuitton bucket bag that my grandmother could carry around everywhere in the 80's and 90's. Whenever she would come stay with us, I always assumed it was full of magic tricks and grandmother things. 

Well, like everyone else, I have been eyeing the Mansur Graviel bucket bag since it's launch. Because I wasn't the only one, everytime I was ready to take the plunge, the color I had my heart set on would quickly sell out. So imagine my delight upon stumbling upon Moda Operandi's vass selection of sizes in colors available for pre-order. {Including patent leather!}

Being a mom, I have quickly learned that my satchels and handbags will get their use on date night or in a couple of years when my hands are literally full. Cross body bags, or mine with long straps, have been a life saver and sometimes, I just use the diaper bag as a way to stash my phone and credit card {and thank goodness for Apple Pay!}.

But now I am in love. 

BUT...I can't choose a color!

Most mommas would agree that the easiest way to dress the bump is with a maxi dress. 

You don't need them to be maternity, just long enough to cover the bump. I love that this one is as soft as a nightgown and has the high-low hem line, making it perfect for all summer festivities and mom friendly, bump or not!
