MAMA Style // Maternity Dresses

April 30, 2017

Minus this rain and cold out right now, I’m loving getting out of jeans and into dresses! Maternity jeans are soooo tight right now on this big ole 35 week belly, so I certainly prefer to slip into a dress. I love bodycon dresses! (Here’s one for that I’ve been wearing that’s NOT maternity and only $9.90! Comes in many colors). They’re tight on the bump instead of big and flowy to make you feel even larger than you really are. But I can’t complain about flowy dresses either to hide all the extra weight around the hips and butt! Give me all the maxi dresses for so much comfort! I’ve rounded up my eight favorite maternity dresses out there right now. The denim embroidered one is my FAVORITE!


Top || 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Bottom || 1 | 2 | 3 | 4


Isn’t the denim one so fabulous?! ASOS is my absolute favorite for maternity clothes, they’re cheap and offer SO many options! Plus buy the $19/year 2 day free shipping, it’s so worth it! Like Amazon Prime!

The teal bodycon dress (#3) is sooo comfortable and it comes in 15 different colors for only $47! I want like 5 of the colors! It’s so comfortable and you can really keep it casual for day or dress it up for night.

Here are some more of my favorite maternity dresses out there!

Friday Finds // 4.14.17

April 14, 2017

Happy Easter Weekend! We have a packed weekend ahead of us. Starting with lunch with Easter bunny tomorrow! I can’t wait to see Ivy and Leo with the bunny and run around chasing some eggs, should be adorable. Let’s hope neither of them are scared by the big bunny! :) Then we get to go to Peppa Live! Ivy just got into the show a couple months ago, and now Leo is walking around saying Peppa too, super cute. Ivy has the cutest Peppa dress to wear to the show. She even had to sleep in it last night when I showed it to her, she’s obsessed! Should be a fun day tomorrow. Ending with EASTER! I’m hosting both sides of our families and am pretty anxious to stuff myself with some delicious food and celebrate after church. Easter eggs are filled and baskets are made, anxious for these two little kids to roam the yard in search for their baskets and eggs! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Happy Easter! Here’s some pics from last year, oh Leo so cute!

Loved my table last year! Going to do basically the same again this year! TULIPS, LOVE

Spring Dresses for Your Mini

April 7, 2017

FINALLY packing away the winter gear and slipping into something much easier… dresses! Ivy literally could wear a dress every day, it’s always what she picks out! And now with the nicer weather, I’m not bugging her to put on tights or leggings and a sweater to cover up the cute dress! She loves to dress herself, and I LOVE that she is capable of doing that, so we made sure to pick out some of these dresses together because I’ve failed too many times with bringing something home that she doesn’t like… #threeyearolds #ugh. Here are some adorable spring dresses for your mini! :)


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9


Ivy’s favorites are 1, 3, 6, and 8! She’s so funny. I love her random style – cute and quirky! 3 is a metallic stripe dress, kinda love it! And the pinafore style is so cute for the spring, like this dress! So many adorable dresses out there. Ivy picked out this dress for Easter when I gave her about 5 options – she always surprises me! Can’t wait to see all your mini babes in their cute spring and summer clothes!

Spring Style | Fashion + Home

March 20, 2017

Hello first day of Spring!!! LOVE that winter is over with and we can look forward to warmer temps, longer days, and (hopefully) no more snow! Transitioning to spring in the house and in the closet is THE BEST. I love to get rid of the dark colors of winter and launch into some pastels, brights, whites, or just basically, COLOR. Winter gets so boring! Already dreaming about the first flowers popping up, pretty tulips draping over the vase, and a new wardrobe filled with flowy tops and trendy jeans!

I updated my favorite room in our house last week, a little ahead of spring, I just couldn’t wait! So nice to get some color in this room!!

And, I’m proud to say that all of my indoor plants are STILL ALIVE! Wooo hoooo! I totally neglected them over the fall and winter, and somehow they made it. Pretty pumped about that because I love a little greenery around the house in the nice seasons!

Now to update some of my wardrobe! I looooove this stripe off the shoulder maternity dress – so beautiful! I can’t wait to get into some dresses that show off the bump. Sick of wearing jeans! But will never be sick of wearing leggings :)

Here are some of my favorite spring fashion and home styles


blanket | clutch | sunglasses | vase | top | espadrilles | sneakers | white pants | denim jeans


Toooootally loving the embroidered jeans trend! They’re everywhere right now! Some are super embroidered and I don’t think I can do that, but I thought the ones in the picture were just a touch enough. Plus I love the frayed hem on the skinny jean! Channeling my (wannabe) inner hippie for those!

Loving all the summer sandals too! Espadrilles are so pretty, but can never go wrong with my yoga pants and sneakers look :)

Gimme all the flouncy tops and flowy blouses! Love the wide ruffle look on the sleeves and the romantic off-the-shoulder look. Finally get to show a little skin with these warmer temps!

Blush Crush

February 26, 2017

I’m obsessing over everything blush right now!! I’m seeing it everywhere and on everything! I love the delicate springish pink it is before all the brights with the summer. Great transition color! It gives me just a tad of color with this boring winter. Last night I wore a blush ruffle maternity top (similar non-maternity here or here) that I LOVE with some black jeans. Flirty and feminine :) So pretty!

I just love the color. Especially paired with gold or rose gold (like this watch or bracelet). Here’s some of my blush crushes out there right now! So many greats out there in fashion, accessories, and home! That pink tassel lamp is like, sooo fabulous!

pillow | crossbody bag | envelope clutch | lipstick | lamp | pitcher | jeans | wedge sandal | perforated bootie | sneaker | ruffle neck topmesh yoke top | ruffled top |crop pocket blouse


AND! I’m 26 weeks pregnant today! So that maternity shirt was a must! I’m in that stage where oversized things are making me look fat instead of pregnant (but still sooooo comfortable!)! Tighter shirts are making me feel a little better about myself ;) Plus, can’t resist ruffles and showing off the cute belly before it’s gigantic!

Get Cozy | Favorite Knits

December 6, 2016

Umb, BRRRRR, it was CHILL-Y today. That wind was unbearable! Makes me want to just stay warm and cozy inside by the fire all day. But, when you have to get one kid to preschool and the other to a playdate, time to cozy up in my favorite knits and buckle through the wind!

I’m loving hats this season. They’re so easy to just put on and hide my undone hair in the mornings as I’m running out the door. A way to look kind of cute when I’m really not looking cute at all ;)

hat from palmer lea

There are so many lovely knits out right now. Knits are so cozy and warm and I want a million knit hats and sweaters! My favorite color right now is anything plum, I love the pop of color on the beanie hats with my gray winter coat. Or that emerald one is pretty fabulous too! Love me some green!

And we can’t forget about cozy knit sweaters! They can be dressed up for a night out with black pants or just daytime casual with jeans or leggings (even cozier!). And again, really loving the light pink colors, lovely and feminine for winter.

Time to shop and get cozy in some favorite knits!



hats || rose | plum | emerald | powder pink

gloves || plum | black | blue | red

sweaters || light pink | cream | ruffle pink | colorblock | pink


My favorite is that rose hat and ruffle pink sweater! Both are so pretty!

So make sure to stay warm and stay classy San Diego cozy!
