19 Weeks…

November 5, 2013



Turns out: full-time job + daylight savings time (translation: dark by 2pm time) + not being able to take pics when there was still good daylight out = lots and lots of fuzzy photos in today’s post. Womp womp.

I’m 19 weeks this week you guys. 19 weeks! Almost half-way there! Fastest half-way I’ve ever experienced. Did I tell you that we get to find out the gender this Friday? Don’t let me talk about it too much or I’ll pee my pants out of excitement. The anticipation is KILLING ME! Oh – and don’t let me sneeze either cuz that is suddenly making me pee as well. Awesome.

Here are two things I’m presently obsessed with: these red chunky heels I got from Target (they’re even kind of comfy… kind of) and this coat from Trendy Blendy. Every lady needs a classic black coat in their wardrobe with good lines and that hits in the right spot – amiright? I heart this one.

Confession time (get used to these confessionals – I’m full of them these days): the more pregnant I get, the more I secretly hate having to go into the city for work (it’s about a 45-60 minute commute on public transit). I have to go in tomorrow, and I don’t know what it is but I am dreading it. That being said, I feel super lucky because I work for a RAD company that lets me work from home about 3-4 days out of the week. Crazy right? I’m a lucky gal, and I know it. And I actually really love the city, once I GET there. I think that maybe tonight it’s just the acid-reflux and the achy back talking. Do those things talk when you’re pregnant? Anyone whose been there – can ya tell me? Either way, I’m wishing you a fabulous Tuesday and hoping for all of us that this week goes by quickly (so that you get to your weekend and so that *I* get to my ‘find out the gender’ appointment. Yahoooo!).



^Fuzzy fuzzy fuzzy fuzz fuzz^


^The horrible things that happen to a picture when you have to go into automatic mode and use the flash. Woof.^

Aaaaaaaand then sometimes that happens.


I recommend not choking yourself with your scarf. That is all.

Outfit Details:

Coat: Trendy Blendy, c/o {buy here} | Sweater: Forever 21 {old) | Jeans: Old Navy, c/o {buy here} | Scarf: Forever 21 | Heels: Target {buy here} | Handbag: Aldo {last season} | Aviators: Target {old}

Have a Turrrrrific Tuesday!

Thanks for reading!

Sweater Roundup + Help My Friend

November 1, 2013

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

You know I can’t get enough of big, cozy sweaters lately. Here are some of my faves lately (priiiiiiiitty sure I already purchased three of these. Oops?)

And just in case you’re feeling particularly altruistic today, or you’re a believer in what goes around comes around, or what you put out is what you’ll get back, or you’re going through a hard time and think helping someone else might make you feel better (always works for me), here’s an opportunity for you:

I have a very dear friend who also happens to be an extremely talented hair stylist in the Utah area (if you need a stylist, check her out!). She was the ONE person in Utah nominated to attend the North American Hair Stylist Awards (the oscars for hair stylists) but has to raise enough cash to attend. If you feel so inclined and would like to contribute to her fund, you can do so at the link below. I know it would mean the world to her, and any little bit helps! Thank you in advance for your generosity (I have the best readers in the world).


(plus if you live in the Utah area, she’ll cut, color or style your hair for a major discount for donating! See link for details.)

And here’s some of her handy work!

And here’s the beauty herself. I love this girl. image_1

Thank you again for your kindness!

Have a Freaky Friday (I’m still in Halloween mode)

and thanks for reading!
