Loving Lace

Summer Lace

With spring finally here, the warmer weather has been making me want to wear feminine pieces, and there is nothing more feminine than lace.  I have especially been loving the look of lace pencil skirts.  I love how they can be dressed up with a silk blouse or can be worn more casually with a graphic tee and denim jacket.  If I wasn't pregnant I would definitely be adding the lace skirt and lace shorts above to my wardrobe, however I am thinking about getting the lace maternity dress for my baby shower.

Wedding Photos and Giveaway

Mike and I just celebrated our second wedding anniversary this past Monday, and I was reliving the magical day by going through my wedding photos.  That's when it occurred to me that I haven't actually shared these photos before, besides a few on Facebook. With my anniversary this week and the start of wedding season, I thought now would be a perfect time to share some of my favorite moments that were captured on camera.

Signature Maternity Look

As my bump has been growing, among other things, I have been finding my style to be a little more casual.  Probably because it is easy to throw on a tank top or tee shirt, especially since a lot of mine still fit.  I haven't really bought maternity clothes yet, but I'll need to get some soon, as many of my blouses are falling a tad too short to wear.  I did buy these jeans at Destination Maternity the other day.  Although they are not the most perfect fit, they are super comfortable and I love the light wash for spring.  Since I do already have a couple pairs of dressier jeans that fit, I'm thinking these will look cute distressed, so I may do a DIY project soon and add rips to my jeans.  I finished this look with my faux leather drape jacket, which has my go-to lately.  Jeans, a tank, and either a leather jacket or blazer has been my signature pregnancy outfit.  Also, I can't tell you how happy I am that sneakers are a fashion must this spring.  Being on my feet at times for 9 hours a day, I couldn't ask for a more perfect shoe!

To make this outfit a touch dressier for dinner with my love, I switched my sneakers for pumps and added a silk scarf.
