bumpin'











When it comes to dressing myself while pregnant, I consider myself pretty lucky so far. I've always preferred my clothes a little loose rather than tight, so as my bump has grown I've been able to get away with my regular tops and pants, and have been buying a size bigger when shopping the regular racks. 

Well, a few weeks ago I suddenly reached a point where I couldn't wear my regular pants low enough for the growing bump, and unless a top was really wide and long, it wasn't doing to trick. Enter actual maternity clothes. I've been so fortunate to find some fantastic maternity brands that I can feel like myself in, but still be comfortable and accommodate the growing bump. 

Today I'm wearing the new maternity denim collection from NYDJ. With tons of stretch, and a belly band that comes up all the way over my entire bump (I've learned that's quite important), these are so comfortable, and I feel so Parisian chic when I wear them. I normally never wear jeans when I travel, but these are so comfortable that I may wear them on the plane when I travel to New York for Fashion Week in a few days. 

Be sure to follow my "bumpin" Pinterest board to find everything I'm wearing, loving and wanting while expecting.

if you like stripes...










While editing photos over the weekend, I realized that I've been wearing even more stripes than usual lately. Which prompted me to have the fashion realization that if you like stripes, you probably like my style. Stripes aren't for everyone, even though I think they should be. And they're definitely for me even being more than half way through my pregnancy. 

Classic, crisp and the right amount of pattern, stripes are one of my style go-to's, and add the perfect amount of timeless style to most looks. This Saint James striped shirt has been one of my favorites for years, I'm pretty much obsessed with this striped bow blouse and this striped maternity dress is definitely in my future. I think it's safe to say, my stripes obsession is here to stay!

leopard lovelies

I couldn't be more excited that there are so many incredible leopard pieces to choose from this season. Animal print is a major trend this fall, and designers at every price point have not disappointed in bringing the leopard lovelies. Sleek handbags, cozy sweaters, sophisticated jackets and shoes galore are all feeding my feline side. 

Today I've rounded up my favorite leopard pieces and the neutrals to pair them with. Whether you go for a cross body bag, a touch of leopard with this adorable watch for $53 or the full enchilada with a show-stopping leopard coat, there is no reason not to take a walk on the WILD side this fall! 

Shop my favorites...

bright red & army green











Sometimes the most unlikely color combinations are the best, like bright red and army green. Paired with a classic navy striped shirt, iconic black bag and oversized jean jacket, and this look is so easy to pull off and perfect for transitioning into fall.

ltd denim













Hi, friends! Today I'm so excited to partner with The Limited and StyleWatch Magazine to bring you the latest denim collection from The Limited. I was thrilled when they approached me to collaborate on this project because I love bringing you the latest and greatest products.

If you know me well, you know that I'm not a big jeans person. I'm super picky about the cut, the stretch and they have to fit just right for me to love them. My girlfriends actually tease me about how weird it is that I rarely wear jeans, and always say that I need to wear them more. 

Well, with the launch of The Limited's latest denim line I'm so excited to have a new go-to pair that feels so good on. These jeans are so incredibly comfortable that I could seriously wear them 24/7, and I love the novelty destruction on this pair. Novelty denim is so hot this season, so I feel right on trend in these jeans. 

Today I'm wearing the destructed ankle skinny jean, and I'm also loving the wide cuff boyfriend jean and the modern skinny jean in blackClick here to see the entire denim collection from The Limited, and don't miss this adorable striped jacket I wore in a previous post. I think you will LOVE what they are offering this fall. Enjoy!
