Recently Wearing

Hi guys!  Thanks so much for hanging in there with me since I haven't been blogging much lately.  I still have been pretty sick and don't have much energy to do anything except lay around and watch marathon sessions of Downton Abbey {my new fave show!}.  My Dr. gave me a prescription for some anti nausea pills, but I'm trying to do things as natural as possible so I've only taken them a couple times when I'm DYING!  I'm really looking forward to getting some energy back, and hopefully moving past this awful sickness.

I posted my last "Recently Wearing" back in December, and you ladies seemed to really like it so I thought I'd post another version.  As I've said before, my style is all about mixing high & low end pieces.  I have absolutely no problem rocking my Birkin bag with a $30 dress!  After all, it's not the price of them item that matters, it's how it makes you look + feel :)  I also always try to link to more affordable options when possible for my babes on a budget.  Lets get started...




Wearing: The softest Bella Dahl Button Down {found here} //  Paige denim {old, similar here} //  Gianvito Rossi suede pumps {here, similar extremely affordable version here}



This Soft Joie knit is one of my absolute favorite items in my closet and I constantly get asked about it whenever I wear it! {available here} //   Citizens of Humanity jeans {here, similar budget friendly here} //  Givenchy boots {sold out in suede, similar here} //  Chanel purse {similar cute navy & gold purse here }



J.Crew cashmere tee {here} //  AG Jeans {found here} // Jimmy Choo pumps {here, similar less expensive version available here} //  Ray-Ban shades {available here}



Calypso St. Barth knit {here, similar fine knit alternative version here} //  BCBG Mason leggings {here} //  Ray-Ban's {found here color gold} //  Saint Laurent Sac de Jour



Soft Joie shift dress {old, also loving this dress} //  J.Crew denim jacket {old, but how cute is this H&M jacket?!} //  Dolce Vita sandals {found here} //  Hermes Birkin Bag





A lot of you have been asking me about maternity items.  I haven't purchased anything "maternity" yet, but have definitely been looking!  I'm SUPER bloated right now {which my Dr. told me is very common in the first trimester} and in the past couple weeks, I've started to see the beginnings of a small bump although Adam & I are the only ones who notice this.  I'm sure to everyone else I just look like I packed on the pounds over the holidays ;)  So for this reason flowy tops and shift dresses that hide the burrito bump are my best friends lately lol.  I haven't really done much shopping this past month just because I know I won't be able to enjoy anything I purchase for very long, but I have bought a few cute affordable flowy dresses that I think will work well throughout most of my pregnancy and I thought I'd share them with you.



I love that cute spring/summer dresses are finally making there way back to stores!  What have you ladies been purchasing lately?

  5. Did you size up for your bump in the stripe scoop back dress? Or is it super stretchy? Love all your looks as usual!

    1. Hi Rachel! I went with my normal size in this dress. I had read reviews on another site that said that this dress runs big and it definitely is loosely fitted so I'm glad that I went with a size S. The other 3 dresses I sized up with a medium. Hope that helps :)

  6. Looking perfect, mama!! Happy to hear you got some meds to take when you are dying - they really do help, but I'm with you on using them sparingly! I hope you start to feel better soon - trust me, it gets better!! xx <3
