• Dreaming of Spring Trends

    I am really, really, looking forward to spring temps and spring trends! On Monday here in KCMO it was 57 degrees! I am oh so grateful for that little taste of spring weather & took advantage by wearing some suede slip ons I picked up last week with a $15 off coupon! I am seeing a ton of suede for spring fashion this year in pretty pastels, greys and neutral tones.

    maternity style for spring

    • It may be worth freezing your toes off right now for these PEEP TOE BOOTIES -they are all the rage right now- & these ! Again, Im loving them in taupe which literally goes with any other color and will get A LOT of wear even into summer temps.
    • I am so in love with the sneaker trend right now because I can be comfy and wear them with jeans or even a midi-dress! Heels haven’t been the easiest to wear in the last month of pregnancy lets be real. I linked a few of my favorite options below 🙂
    • Loafers and mule slip-ons are also HUGE right now and I can’t say I mind it. No bending over to tie my shoes + cute + comfy = HEAVEN. I just got these Kristen Cavallari pair in “grey suede” and they will be on repeat for sure.
    • The cold shoulder trend is here to stay for spring- it adds a simple flair to the most basic T that can be styled a million different ways.
    • Sweatpants AHEM I mean joggers= basically sweatpants that are acceptable in public. I am sold.
    • Flowy knits or dresses in a pretty white, cream or pastel are a must.
    • Bomber jackets-I have a floral print and a blush color on my wish list currently.

    If you shop online as much as I do and want to easily earn cash back on purchases use EBATES!  All you have to do is click on merchant you are shopping and they pay you anywhere from 2-15% just for clicking. I love it.

    What’re you looking forward to this Spring?

    It seems silly to be thinking about Spring and Summer fashion considering its currently 30 degrees in KCMO… but really this is when you find the best designer deals!!

    For those of you obsessed with Tory Burch like I am… her famous Miller sandals are currently on major sale (these rarely do go on sale) $136 usually around $200!

    I’ve been eyeballing the Stuart Weitzman OTK boots for months but they’re usually like $800!! Currently $300! I may convince myself that these are worth the investment…..

    I also found some Hunter boots on sale and I ADORE mine. They are made of high quality rubber and if worn with warm socks, keep your feet warm in the winter but don’t make your feet sweat in the spring when you need some high quality rain boots. These are worth the investment for sure!

    Free people is also having a 12 hour sale today so act fast! These are my favorites 🙂 Happy shopping!

  • Bump Date 36 Weeks

    36 weeks! Down to the last month!!!!

    So whats your guess? Is baby P3 a boy or a girl? Whenever we ask Jameson what he thinks he ALWAYS says the latter of the two whichever you say last. Brilynn wants a little sister so bad Im afraid she might be temporarily devastated if its another little brother. This will be short lived as I know and have seen her love for babies. We are really excited to meet this little miracle!

    Baby is the size of a head of romaine lettuce: (I always wonder why they compare baby size to food)

    Baby is approximately 18.5 inches long and 6 pounds! My back and hips definitely agree.

    Cravings: cereal, orange juice, oranges-I haven’t really had any “I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW” cravings this pregnancy. Lately I’ve only been able to eat very small amounts of food at a time to avoid indigestion and heartburn :/ Thank you Jesus for apple cider vinegar and ginger!!

    Missing: my red wine and buttoning my pants for sure. Really looking forward to wearing my pre baby clothes again & that vino!

    Feeling: Anxious, Ive had a really hard time sleeping lately or getting any rest. I force myself to lay down but can’t even nap most days! Must be my body’s way of preparing me for sleep deprivation.

    Im trying to MAKE time to just enjoy the rest of this pregnancy by spending alone time with Jameson, making fewer plans to leave the house, and just sit in the silence and stillness (rare). Before Jameson was born I got to spend 4 years of alone time with Brilynn which was GREAT. Poor Jameson is getting the short end of the stick this time around but since Brilynn has been in school full time we have really been able to bond since August.

    Ive had to let a lot of things go that typically give me major anxiety-crumbs on the floor, Jameson licking toys at the doctors office, Brilynn wearing semi-matching clothes, snacks for lunch, & third day hair- thank you dry shampoo!

    I may have started “nesting” but its been a challenge since we are currently moving all the kids to different rooms. Brilynn’s room is almost done, we have Jameson’s room painted and SHIPLAP-ed!! and the nursery is prepped for paint! Pics coming soon 🙂
