Effortlessly Fab Maternity

Today’s post features another piece from the Wendy Bellissimo for Destination Maternity line coming next month!
I’m always a sucker for stripes & love the grey + white combo of this perfect tank! I’ve worn it a few times since I got it last week & I get compliments every time I do! This line is the best, there isn’t one piece I don’t like. And the fact that they’ll work after baby is so great because I just can’t get enough!

Sundress Love

One of my favorite combos for a cute Summer look has been a sundress + boots. You can easily go from the beach, to lunch, to date night with a good sundress! Throwing on some boots with a dress makes it totally wearable anywhere, which I love. I HATE being overdressed and really prefer a more casual look for any occasion..but always with a little pop. Whether it’s the jewelry, a hat, or a jacket. It’s a fun way to make your look your own!

Maternity Must Haves

I am so excited for the first feature of my collab for the blog with Motherhood Maternity/Destination Maternity showing off the fab new line by Wendy Bellissimo! I’ve been in love with all things Wendy since I was pregnant with my daughter Rylee(who’s now 9)! Her crib bidding was from her line in BabiesRUs & some of my favorite baby clothes that I still have to this day!
So I was ecstatic to get the opportunity to feature her new MATERNITY line for the Fall that debuts next month! Perfect additions to the wardrobe that will easily work for after baby as well, which is a huge plus because I’m so in love with it all, I would be bummed if I could only wear it until the end of my pregnancy.
I decided to start out with this kimono which is my favorite piece! The color & detail is just so gorgeous. Paired with this comfy grey tank, also from the line. You just can’t go wrong with it! I hope you love the look & more to come! All available next month!

In The Dust

I am LOVING this lace duster from The Minted Exchange! It’s such a gorgeous piece that makes an outfit. And this blush color is heavenly! Kimonos have been so hot this season, but I have yet to see a lace version until now. It’s so perfect for a casual wear like this, worn with a dress, or even as a beach cover.
I’m also wearing a new necklace from my girlfriend Holly who just opened her shop, Bleached Tea. She’s an insanely talented jewelry designer that’s been on hiatus for a bit while she’s focused more on family & her children. I think I speak for us all when I say I’m SO happy she’s back to jewelry! Look forward to more amazing pieces from her and follow her on Instagram @bleached_tea







So There’s This Dress

and it has to be my FAV dress of the Summer! The lace detail, color, and the fit are all so on point.
And it’s available now at The Minted Exchange in both black & beige! Seriously run over though, they sold out so fast last time they were available on the site!
I had to add pops of color with this dress, and my bandeau is actually a bikini top from Target! So fun. Busy arm candy & my Nena & Co. daybag finished the look perfectly. Such a fun Summer look!

Good Vibes Only

I thought this post was fitting for today because good vibes are always needed on a Monday, am I right?
Our matching Good Vibes Only tee & tank are from a company with some of the best clothing & accessories, a company I’ve been following on insta for forever, Mulberry Press Co. (@mulberrypressco) if you don’t already follow, it’s a must! The heart tank and coffee mug are (obviously) some of my favorites as well!

Desert Stroll

I love living in the country! Yesterday’s post was down a dirt road, today’s is more of a desert vibe with cactus, tomorrow’s is floral. Is so gorgeous out here! This heat hasn’t been very fun though…the kids and I have just been trying to stay cool at the pool everyday. ((Side note)) if you haven’t tried Maui Babe browning lotion and your like me- pastey white year round, you must! I got it a few summers ago in Kauai and this is my color after just a handful of times laying out! It’s the best! Now I’m not so embarrassed to sport shorts and dresses this season.
I hope you’re all staying cool & enjoying Summer so far! Besides being huge and not having one icy cold cocktail- it’s been ok for me šŸ˜‰
