Happy Valentine’s Day y’all! Only in Houston does it feel like late spring in mid-February. My mind is set to spring, and I hardly even got to wear my winter favorites this year! Getting a jump start on all things spring & summer, I’m sharing a roundup of some of my favorite warm-weather pieces from across the web, all under $50 too!
These earrings are just begging to be worn outside while drinking a margarita … am I right!?
If you live in a cooler climate, all of these pretties all make great additions to your spring break suitcase! Speaking of which, my little family will be “spring breaking” in Memphis this year! Annie will have just gotten all of her vaccines and we’ll be ready to travel with her. While Memphis doesn’t really scream “spring break,” we are so excited to be heading to my hometown this March to introduce our little girl to friends & family. I still can’t believe my two brothers haven’t met her yet!!
Maybe we’ll have some warm weather while in Memphis and I can get away with a few of these spring looks?! We’ll see!
Anddddd it’s my first non-maternity blog post in 9 months! Woohoo! Not going to lie, I’ve been so excited to get back into my old favorite silhouettes and styles. It’s been a long (but wonderful) stretch of planning outfits around a big ol’ bump! Today I’m sharing details on this look (& this on sale black embroidered maxi dress.) I’m also chatting about why I think it’s important to carve out a moment or two for yourself in the early weeks with a newborn.
I’ve probably worn a winter coat two times, maybe three, so far this year. Houston, you sure are confusing. Can’t even believe the high today is in the 80s! The outfit I’m sharing in this post was one of my favorite pregnancy looks. I loved that this big roomy coat fit over my baby bump. Paired with skinny jeans & ankle boots I felt oh-so-chic!
I’m sharing details on this wintery look today & why sometimes renting winter pieces make the most sense when you live in a warmer climate. Plus, I’m giving a little update on life with Annie below!
Valentine’s Day has totally crept up on me this year. But I’ve had a realllllly great distraction, so I’m okay with that. This year I’m celebrating with the sweetest gift of all, our little Annie! But we all know chocolate, flowers & greeting cards make everything
Every year, Patrick and I always give each other a card with a thoughtful message inside. He will “surprise” me with beautiful flowers each Feb. 14th and it’s the absolute sweetest! I typically will “surprise” him with loads & loads of chocolate, his version of flowers, and then we’ll have a fancy dinner out or cook a delicious meal at home. This year, I’m teaming up with H-E-B to share a fun way to kick up the traditional Valentine’s Day gifting routine. I’m rounding up the cutest over-the-top cards, how to get the most beautiful flowers delivered to your sweetie AND a recipe for Chocolate Pretzel treats that will melt anyone’s heart, and takes literally less than 10 minutes to make!
If you saw my recent Instagram posts, you may have seen me mention that we just got back from the hospital, again! Long story short, I ended up having an infection at the incision site from my c-section. It was the worst! Thank goodness for heavy duty meds and a lot of rest, I’m finally on the mend!
Anywho I wanted to share with you all my must haves for your hospital stay when welcoming a new baby! And now that I’ve had two visits in two weeks, I’m kinda feeling like a pro at this one. I’m rounding up what I couldn’t live without, what I overpacked and absolutely did not need, and a few fun extras that you totally don’t have to pack, but they make a longer stay at the hospital SO much better.
Annie is here, Annie is here!! (Did y’all see her arrival on my insta!?) I’ve been a mom for 10 days now! These past 10 days have certainly been the most wonderful & difficult of my entire life. I could write about 7 novels on the subject, seriously. I’ll definitely get into Annie’s arrival story in a bit more detail down the road, but until then I have some posts I shot before her arrival that I can’t wait to share!
Starting with this look & this fabulous off-the-shoulder striped maternity number. Who says you can’t be stylish at 39 weeks pregnant!? (Which is when we shot this look, to be precise!) Head on down below for details on this outfit of mine and what I’ll miss the most about pregnancy style now that I’m on the other end of the spectrum.
