Maternity Style

At last, a new outfit post and officially my first maternity style look! I wanted to do these types of posts sooner, but as I mentioned in my last blog post my first trimester was bru-tal! Now I finally have reached a stage where I feel normal *knock on wood* and I was finally able to make it to a San Diego blogger related event! I'll show you more on the event on the next blog post but for now let's get to the outfit!

I had picked up this long vest pre-pregnancy and had always envisioned styling it this way. Now that I'm 26 weeks pregnant, I amended the styling to include this comfy and stretchy maternity body con dress which worked out perfectly! Unfortunately this exact vest has since sold out, but I did want to show that the vest + body con dress formula is a perfect way to be in maternity wear and still look stylish! This is also a great option for an office setting (wearing it to work as we speak) I just swapped out the heels for nude flats and voilĂ !

We're pregnant! (& update)

It's been a few months since my last blog post which has been the longest I have deserted my blog for, and there's a good reason for it- I've been growing a lil baby inside my belly! My husband and I feel really blessed and thankful to share the news that we are expecting our first child!

The first ultra sound was such a trip! The hubby and I saw the flicker of the heartbeat and the baby in the very early stages. In the second ultra sound, the baby was "moving and grooving" as my Doc said and it was so cute and surreal. The third more detailed ultra sound was just amazing, seeing the baby extend its legs, open mouth, the profile of the head. After the ultrasound at week 19, I feel a new connection to my baby and I talk to "it" (gender to be revealed soon).

Week 6 through 17
It was all nerve and jitters from the time I saw a positive pregnancy test until week 6 when I experienced my first bout of "morning sickness". I had to say good bye to my coffee addiction and all the fun stuff in life (jk), no but really I am not taking any risks with sushi, alcohol, deli meat, soft serve ice cream. For the following 14 weeks it has been a roller coaster of morning sickness, food aversions and exhaustion. I will not go into details because this is meant to be such a happy announcement post, but being sick all the time literally knocked my off my feet, hence the reason for my abrupt disappearance. In addition, I was promoted to Manager two weeks before I found out I was pregnant, so my current situation has been me managing my symptoms to go into work to do my job, but after work I have become a hermit and just try to make it through the day with food in my stomach. It felt like having the stomach flu for about 3 months. I have hope that it will get better so I can start doing all the fun maternity things like prepping the nursery, reading books, and starting to buy stuff for the baby.

Week 20
I finally started feeling relief from food aversions and morning sickness. A part of me is still paranoid that a morning sickness episode will occur because they tended to happen out of nowhere so I'm still not going anywhere other than work and some very special occasions that I cannot miss. The best part of this stage is that I feel baby move ALL THE TIME! I'll be working and just feel the movements or kicks, and I get reminder, oh yeah there's a little person growing in me! My belly also "popped" out in week 20, and everyone at work started noticing that I was pregnant. My husband will sometimes be like "who it's big!" and we both trip out just staring at it in disbelief that we created this little being and that it will represent the combination of both of us.

On another note...
So yeah, I'm halfway through this pregnancy and have gotten through it with non maternity stretchy dresses, however I'm finally going to start shopping for some maternity wear and hope to share it on the blog soon. Thank you for all you who have stuck around and those who have wished me well on social media, I really appreciate it! Feel free to leave me any advice in the comments below, I'll take everything I can get since this is my first lil baby!

Blush Delicate Lace

There's something about delicate blush lace that oozes elegant Spring. Even though I've been coveting this tone for quite some time, it feels like it's a more prominent trend this season. This dress I picked up from the Worthington line at JCPenney was perfect because it's an updated way to wear blush this season with the bell sleeves that are also a big trend. I not only linked this beautiful dress below but also the top form, both are elegant pieces at an affordable price point! Want to see more cute blush items? Click here!

Going with the Flow-y Top

Happy Wednesday and to all my women out there, Happy International Women's Day! I wish I had planned a red outfit to post today to represent, but instead I'm sharing this look that I wore to lunch with my mom and siblings which in a way was a celebration of the most important woman of my life! We wanted to take mom somewhere nice, and we picked Coasterra Restaurant because of the stunning views and delicious food (see pics below). It was one of those chilly San Diego days where over the knee boots felt appropriate and this Chicwish flowy top ended up being perfect to conceal my post-lunch bod (hee hee).

Polka Dot Flare

Happy March! As I was looking through my recent blog posts I realized that I've been going with muted tones, blacks and grays which I attribute to this weird Winter we are having in San Diego. California has had a TON of rain which means that it's helped the drought crisis we had (and I won't feel guilty when I take a long bath- Lush here I come!)

When the sun peaks out, I'm scrambling to get the Spring clothes I have waiting in my closet like this polka dot dress that I scored for under $30 hereAfter sporting off the shoulder dresses and tops last season I decided to hold off on buying anymore because I wasn't sure how long this trend would last, BUT I have been seeing it all over the place so I hit add to cart to a few pieces. I wore this to Kendra Scott Fashion Valley's Galentine Blogger Party and it was only fitting that I wear one of my fave Kendra pieces, this necklace that pairs well with off the shoulder silhouettes.
