a few of my favorite things…

I thought I would take a little time to share some of my most recent favorite online finds.

1. I absolutely love ASOS, and even though I’m not a super big fan of buying maternity clothes I feel like this ASOS Breton Maternity Top will be great post-maternity wear too!

2. This Anthropologie Sweater is such a great winter staple – so cozy and warm!

3. I’ve managed to avoid buying maternity jeans up until now but I’m starting to get a little uncomfortable with my regular jeans/belly band situation so I’ve been asking around for other maternity jean suggestions and it seems like GAP is a top recommendation, I’m super tempted to go pick these GAP Maternity Skinny Jeans up.

4. This super snuggly Chunky Knit Cowl is something that I’ve been wanting all winter long, and I might have finally caved! One of the great things about being pregnant is that accesories like this add to an outfit and can be used long term.

5. I’m a huge fan of Michelle Chang Jewelry and this Horseshoe Ring is at the top of my ‘want’ list…it’s absolutely gorgeous!

6. I have to admit that I’m not a huge charm necklace person, but this Horizontal Personalized Necklace is such a great, simple way to carry the names of the ones you love.

7. I’ve been a fan of Blowfish Shoes since I first saw them 5 years ago and even though I love almost all of the style they carry, these Hazmitten Boots are so cute!

8. Mod Cloth is also one of my favorite online stores and this purse is a great way to indulge in the satchel trend.

skirting the issue

Recently I’ve been really trying to build my closet with pieces that can transfer from season to season, sticking with basics that can be worn a lot of different ways. So recently I went on one of my thrifting adventures and found this maxi skirt that I love (and belt and watch – it was a fruitful trip :) )


There are so many things I love about maxi skirts, they are so comfortable and versatile – perfect for mama style! The elasticated waist is a HUGE bonus since it will be perfect to wear during pregnancy, and the busy pattern means that stains (a hazard of having a 1 and 3 year old!) are easily hidden.
This was actually taken a few months ago during the summer so I was wearing flip flops, but it’s gonna be a great fall/winter pick with tights and boots.

I also have been trying to expand my accessories collection because I love the trend of layering jewelry.


Sometimes it’s hard to remember to throw on accessories as I run out of the door with the two kiddos, but I’ve really found that having an organized(ish) place to hold all my jewelry that I can run to and pick from is a really easy way to add a little spice to a simple outfit.

t-shirt – taxi taxi (houston)
belt and watch – thrifted
