Sweater Style

October 23, 2013



We’re into full-on fall weather, even here in sunny Cali-forn-i-a, and I can’t get enough of sweaters. I love this navajo-inspired sweater from Choies. It’s got a ‘dances with wolves’ motif going on that makes me feel at one with nature and the animals and… what the deuce am I talking about? Mostly I just love the pretty pattern and how drapey, warm and cozy it is. The end.

Hope you’re having a great week so far! Ours has been cray-cray busy! We went to dinner with dear friends on Monday night, went to a Halloween party last night, are going to dinner with some other good friends tonight + a choir rehearsal (did I ever tell you I sing sometimes? Orrrrrrr try to sing is more like it these days.), and we got stuff the rest of the week. That might be the norm for all the cool kids on the block, but for these homebodies, it’s a total anomaly. Pretty sure we’ll need like 2 weeks to recover. NBD.

Old Navy Sweaters

October 17, 2013



So the truth is, ever since becoming pregnant, all I have wanted to wear are over-sized sweaters. And by over-sized I mean OVER.SIZED. My better judgment has kept me from purchasing all the XXL’s I can find (even though that’s what I really want) and helped me stick with sizes that look loose and comfy but don’t drown me. Good thing Old Navy has a gazillion adorable sweaters right now (which you can buy over-sized if you share my love for that). Ummm, yeah – pretty sure I’ve purchased like 12 of them.

That being said, my next challenge has been spicing things up. ‘How do I make an ensemble consisting of skinny jeans and an over-sized sweater more interesting?’ my brain has asked me. Answer: statement necklace + killer boots + a faux leather jacket + a cool-kid beanie. Remember how I just put my beanie in the ‘cool-kid’ category? Yep – I did that. Cuz that’s how I feel when I wear it. Like a cool kid. Which immediately makes me NOT cool, but that’s neither here nor there.

The POINT IS: dress up your oversized sweaters with some simple, ‘cool’ extras and you got yourself a fun, fail-proof, fall outfit (that was a lot of F’s) that is also comfy as death. And if you need to add a few sweaters to your wardrobe, Old Navy has got you covered. And no one can be mad about that, amiright?


p.s. thanks for all the kind words and support about our little announcement a couple days ago. It means a lot to this little heart of mine. X-to-the-O.

p.s.s. can we talk about how annoying it is that I don’t know how to get the alignment right for my pics/the Old Navy logo at the bottom of the page? If anyone reading this right now is a web-dev savant (or just slightly less idiotic than me, which isn’t tough), be a sista and HELP.ME. My ignorance is painful, and we’re all suffering for it.

These boots again + my new fave vest

October 16, 2013



What does a loose fitting shirt + sucking in + photoshop equal? Disguising your 16-week prego belly as a small food baby instead of a real baby. Yep – that’s what’s happening in these here pics. Can we talk about how happy I am to have this out in the open now? Mostly because I’ve been dying to tell you everything I’m feeling and experiencing (i.e. 12 weeks of near-barfing, overnight porn-star boobs, and the weirdest (for me) cravings evs). Also I was getting real sick of having to suck it in and edit the crap out of my photos just to keep all of this a secret. I’m lettin’ it all hang out now peeps, so get ready!

Something you may or may not know about me: I have some addictive tendencies. Is it mildly creepy when I say it like that? Mmmmyes. But mostly what I mean is this: when I find something I love, I tend to love the crap out of it… in a mildly obsessive way. Take my husband, for example. Obsessed. Honey Bunches of Oats cereal? Addicted. And don’t get me started on what I used to be like with Diet Mountain Dew (peeps who know me from the days of yesteryear can confirm. It was alarming. I’m happy to report that I’ve given up the Dew… but it took getting panic attacks any time I drank it to get me there. Um, yeah – long story.)

Anywhoooooo, this outfit represents a few of my addictions – old and new. Polka dots: an old, tried and true obsession (this one I’m wearing is ON SALE right meow). You’ve already been warned that I’m obsessed with these Hunter Boots (last seen here). And this vest from Joules: my newest addiction. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this baby allllllll fall/winter long. Pretty sure I’m obsessed with basically everything from this adorable company (check out the rest of their vests… and their jackets. You’ll die.).

Vest: Joules, c/o {buy here} | Polka dot top: Oasap, c/o {buy here} | Skinnies: Old Navy, c/o {buy here} | Hunter Boots: Nordstrom {buy here} | Necklace: J.Crew {buy here} | Handbag: Topshop {similar} | Watch: Nordstrom {save} {splurge} | Pave link bracelet: Ily Couture {buy here}
