Current Summer Obsessions

L'Oréal True Match foundation

Our needs change month-to-month and even more so as the seasons change. Each season brings with it its own unique personality and I find I become obsessed with specific products, clothing items and forms of entertainment as the weather shifts.

These are my summer obsessions for 2016!

Styled | The Teal Dress

DSC00004-edit

Jordan took these photos of me at the beginning of April. My how the bump has grown! As you might remember, I received a box from BUMPstyle  (a maternity clothing subscription service) which included several different outfits (1,2,3). You can read more about how their subscription service works here!

This dress from Jules & Jim was my favorite from the bunch. The fabric was extremely soft (which now really matters as I continue to grow into my third trimester) and teal is one of my preferred colors. I don’t wear a lot of color regularly, but I have a hard time turning away from teal.

Weekend Links / / Piles of Laundry

Jordan and I arrived home very late on Wednesday night. Our laundry pile might be out of control, but there is watermelon and La Croix in the fridge and lasagna defrosting for dinner. I made a very smart (unintentional) decision to wait a few days before going back to work. This isn’t always an option but is so helpful, especially in the third trimester. It gives me extra time for all our laundry. 😉

Yesterday, was my glucose test and here’s to hoping I passed! The drink was rather disgusting, especially since the last thing I wanted to consume after a long vacation was added sugar. Afterwards, I scheduled appointments for the remainder of this pregnancy. WHAT?! I can’t believe we are approaching the finish line.

Onto the links!

Styled | The Navy Blue Dress

BUMPstyle Box Tees by Tina Crinkle Maternity Navy Blue Dress

When I first opened my BUMPstyle Box, I unwrapped it with glee, ferociously unpacking each item. While looking over the clothes, I hesitantly held up this navy blue dress… skepticism all over my face. Jordan saw the dress and confidently stated it was his favorite item from the box.

I assumed (because of how small it looked) it would be far too tight and short for my liking. Well, clothes simply fit my pregnant body differently and some styles I would be uncomfortable wearing before are my preference now. More often than not, I am my own worst fashion critic and will write something off because I don’t think it’ll look good on my body. Add nearly 20 pounds of baby and I don’t know what to think! Thankfully, I have a husband who encourages me to step outside my proverbial fashion box.

PinkBlush Stylin’ + A Giveaway

PinkBlush Maternity Clothes

I know some women who are less than thrilled with the prospect of having to purchase maternity clothes, but I have been looking forward to this day for years! When faced with the many facets of infertility, I acknowledged certain dreams of mine (such as wearing maternity clothes) might not become a reality for me. Now that I am here, I want to fully embrace this beautiful season of life which includes new pieces of clothing to celebrate my growing baby.

I first heard of PinkBlush Maternity through my friend Teresa and loved their sexy, playful, and affordable clothes. I am so excited I now have the opportunity to wear them!
