Recently Over On Insta + A Few Pics That Didn't Make The Cut

Oh Monday......I have a serious case of the Monday blahs over here.  Anyone else with me?  This weekend just went by entirely too fast!

Since I know that not all of you are on Instagram, I like to share a few of my favorite snaps with you guys about once per month and allow you to see pieces of my little life; what I'm up to, what I've been cooking, new purchases that I've scooped up, and what I've been wearing.  In addition to sharing those pics with you today, I thought I'd also post a few pics that didn't make the Insta cut.  I have on my phone that never get posted {thousands of my dogs that I share with Adam}, so I thought it would be fun to show you some of those as well!  

Here we go.....

^^ 22 weeks pregnant and this belly is poppin'!!  Wearing: Isabella Oliver dress {here} //  Tai evil eye bracelet {here} //  Stila lip gloss {color apricot here} // Dining room table & chairs {because I always get asked, found here}

^^ I've been really into making these acai bowls lately.  They're so yummy and beyond easy to whip up!  I can post my recipe for you guys if you want, it's reallyyyy simple....

^^ All about that casual comfort!  Wearing: Olive green cotton pants {so comfy! found here} //  Basic gray tank {here} //  Chloé Marcie bag {here} //  Dolce Vita sandals {old, but similar here & here}

^^ Summa sandal game going strong ;)  Valentino sandals {exact ones here}

^^ Taking Lulu for a walk around Key West wearing: Billabong dress {non maternity here} //  Rag & Bone denim vest {old, similar here} //  Panama hat {found here} //  Gold leather flip flops {here, similar budget friendly version here}

^^ Because what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't snap a pic of peonies?! ;)

^^ The best part of my weekly Pilates sessions is the smoothie bar outside of my gym.  I hit it up after every session!  On my nails: Sally Hansen Insta Dry polish {color Sonic Boom} //  Sofia Al Asfoor Shield Bag {info here}

^^ Everyday essentials.  Wearing: Striped tee {I LIVE in these lately! here} //  Leggings {my fave non maternity that still work found here} //  Distressed denim button down {here} //  Vince slip ons {here, similar budget friendly version available here}

^^ Pretty pretty palms in Key West.  

^^ I've never really been a flip flop type of gal until my feet started swelling recently.  I'll definitely get decent mileage out of these Chanel beauties this summer.  #TreatYoSelf 

^^ Staying hydrated with fresh coconut water - someone warned me that it might have an, ahem, laxative effect on me, but at this point I would welcome that with open arms {another glorious pregnancy symptom!}.  Wearing: Gap tank {on sale for around $10 here} //  TopShop maternity denim shorts {available here} //  Black leather flip flops {here} //  Gucci purse {exact one here} //  Purple shades {here, color gray mirror purple}

^^ We had decided on our little girls name before we even knew what we were having - Isla.  I've just loved that name for the longest time {middle name is still tbd}.  Other names that we loved included Mila & Sienna!  Personalized bunny rocker {here}

^^ Date night with the hubs wearing: Monrow maternity dress {here, non maternity version found here} //  Gold tie up sandals {here} //  Chanel purse

.....and a few pics that didn't make the cut.

A snap from our anniversary dinner at my favorite romantic restaurant in Miami Beach, Casa Tua.

When I found out that we were having a girl, my friend Jaqx {@fitbohemianblonde} sent me the cuuuutest little moccs.  I've made some amazing friends through the blogging world :)  Moccs are from Sweet n Swag.

Thank you so much to everyone who made great suggestions on strollers.  This girl is now the proud owner of a 2015 UppaBaby Vista {in black + carbon}.  I ultimately decided on the UppaBaby rather than the Bugaboo based off of it's extended sun shade {a must for living in FL}, the huuuuge basket underneath, the ease of collapsibility without taking any components out, and also the option to turn this into a double stroller down the road.

Shopping for photo props for one of my recent recipes at Crate & Barrel and I fell in love with this tablescape.  Would be perfect for dining al fresco.

Beach scenery at our hotel in Key West.

Brunchin' at the St. Regis in Bal Harbour.

A glimpse into what rainy season in So. Florida really looks like.  Sometimes our pool will overflow in a matter of a few hours!

What I woke up to yesterday morning!  Our air conditioning broke over the weekend, so we stayed at the Acqualina {82 degrees at night + preggo was just not happening}.  I forgot how much of a luxury it is to wake up to the sound of the ocean - kinda makes me miss condo life.

Have a great week everyone!  Thanks for reading! xx


  1. A few pics that didn't make the cut - seriously how full are our cameras on the phone LOL! I always love your insta feed!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I love the name Isla!!! It is such a unique and beautiful name!!

  3. Love love love everything! I really need to make an acai bowl - that looks SO delish! xx

  4. I would love the recipe for the acai bowl please

  5. Thanks so much for the update on not only which stroller you chose... but also the why! It's amazing how much thought goes into choosing one baby item! xoxo

    1. Oh my goodness, yes that is so true! For me it came down to the fact that I felt that with Bugaboo, you were just paying for the name....there were just so many other pros that ultimately lead to the UppaBaby weighing out the Bugaboo.
