New Favorite Dress

I popped into to Pretty Pony Boutique a few weeks back just to browse and ended up falling in love with this dress. Not only are the print and silhouette so gorgeous, but it has an elastic waistband which is perfect for my bump to grow into! I love that I can style this dress for work or play, and definitely plan to wear it again both with a smart pair of pumps and a casual pair of sandals. Am I the only one who loves just stumbling upon a piece that you know you will love for years to come?! Pregnant or not, this dress fits like a glove! It doesn't get better than that.

Dress: Pretty Pony Boutique // Heels: old [nearly identical here] // Sunnies: Nordstrom [only $12] // Ring: Charming Charlie [only $10] // Bag: Chloe // Earrings: Kendra Scott c/o // Watch: Michael Kors // Bracelets: Kendra Scott // Lip Color: YSL #8

Friday, we meet again! This past week has been pretty busy with work and blog stuff. I'm super excited because next week not only do we have our anatomy scan, but we're also heading back to Chicago for some early baby showers wtih my friends and family! It's going to be a busy weekend prepping for our trip, that's for sure! Below are some links I'm loving. Enjoy!


My favorite high-end lipstains are on sale! #8 and #17 are my favorites.

This dress is darling and under $40! #score

These pumps are on major sale and will never go out of style.

If you haven't picked up this tunic yet, what are you waiting for?!


While I can't partake in this, this lazy girl sangria from Chelsea looks AMAZING!

Ummmm, YES. Roadtrip, anyone?!

Love this maternity lookbook from Jen.

Megan has great tips for caring for designer items.

Classic Summer Style

You know I love a good stripe. I'm actually dreading the day I get so big that stripes are no longer a good idea, because they're always what I'm reaching for [evidence here + here as of late]. This dress has been styled a million times by now, but I love how it looks with my growing bump. I threw on my trusty denim vest [also styled to death, like here] and my Chanel for a fun look for dinner al fresco. I'm loving flats these day so I brought out these old braided ones for both comfort and cuteness. To me, this look reminds me so much of summer and is timeless with its classic elements. 

Dress: Pretty Pony Boutique [identical here] // Vest: Gap [identical here] // Sandals: Target // Bag: Chanel [more affordable here] // Cuff: Baublebar // Watch: Michael Kors // Earrings: H&M // Sunnies: here // Rings: here + here

Pool Day

Even before I knew I was pregnant, I knew this summer was the one I wanted to finally embrace the one piece. While there are so many cute options from brands like Mara Hoffman and Trina Turk, I didn't want to invest heavily in something I wasn't exactly sure I'd love. Enter this killer one piece from Target. It's only $40 and I actually feel really good in it, even with my growing baby bump! I threw on this adorable kimono from Pretty Pony for our friends' daughter's birthday baewatch party and I love how it came together. I'm starting to really accept my new body and this pool day outfit surely helped with that.

Coverup: Pretty Pony Boutique [similar here] // Swimsuit: Target [obsessed] // Shorts: J.Crew Factory // Sunnies: here // Bracelets: old [love these + these] // Sandals: Seychelles [love these under $25]

Gingham + Sneakers

Today's post is equal parts classic and retro. I love the all-American look of gingham. Paired with sneakers and a coordinating bag, I had a look that is perfect for summer barbeques or parties. This kind of ensemble would be perfect for 4th of July, too! I scored this dress at TJ Maxx and love how it can grow with my bump due to the tie. It was comfy and equally as cute. Do you love gingham for the summer?!

Friday Finds

Friday, we meet again! I can't believe I'm 17.5 weeks pregnant! Although my hyperemesis is still alive and well, I've had a few good days here and there, so I'm hoping this means I'll feel much better here soon. We have some fun plans with friends this weekend so we hope to just get out and enjoy the weather. Below are some links I'm loving. Enjoy!


How cute is this [$25] tote for the beach?!

This maxi is darling and under $50!

This brush set is great quality and a great value.


Love this cheap & easy DIY post.

Crushing on this golden, casual look from Katie.

This has been my go-to when I'm craving something sweet.

Austin Photo Diary

I had planned to take a bunch of outfit photos while we were in Austin, but due to unfortunate circumstances, the trip took an unexpected turn and Mike had to leave early. While we tried to make the best of it and still have fun the rest of the weekend, I just didn't end up shooting any more full looks besides the one I shared on Monday. Instead, I thought I'd share some of the iPhone photos I did manage to take, including some of the outfits I wore and some of the food we ate. Enjoy!

OOTD to get some breakfast tacos
