Happy Thanksgiving

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  This is my favorite holiday.  I love how it’s all about family, friends and good food.  Not to mention it commences the start of the Christmas season.  Something about this time of year….full of so much love.  This year is even more special since it will be Carlota’s first.  As much as she may not remember these moments, I’m keeping them all imprinted in my head and cherishing every second.

Today’s look was from our trip to NYC.  We were lucky to have perfect weather.  I kept my look simple as usual with all black but added this vest to add texture and color.  I love an army green coat or vest.  They go with everything and give a perfect pop of color.  This vest was a recent purchase from Anthropology so be sure to pop into one of their stores for their Black Friday Sales.

I hope all my American readers are having a Happy Thanksgiving!!FullSizeRender-14IMG_0922IMG_0774IMG_0807IMG_0667IMG_0616IMG_0987

Heritwine Maternity Giftcard Giveaway

As soon as I got pregnant I started to worry about many things.  One of my worries was, what am I going to wear as my baby bump gets larger? You barely see maternity clothing stores when you are out shopping….or at least prior to pregnancy I never took notice. I decided to do some research and found some department stores that had maternity sections. I was so excited to start looking for my “new wardrobe”, I already went shopping when I was only 8 weeks pregnant. To my dismay I was horrified.

The maternity section was stashed away in a corner, with items I would never be caught dead in.  I’m talking about those horrid “mom” jeans, and floral shirts with empire waists etc.  I can’t even remember anything else, I was so traumatized I must have blocked those memories. I was not going to let my fashion sense disappear just because I’m pregnant.

Thankfully I had come across other online maternity stores. One of those boutiques is Heritwine Maternity.  I love when I can find affordable clothing that will make me look good.  The Cardigan I am wearing is from this shop.  We have teamed up to give one lucky reader a $25 gift card just by posting a comment below on why you would like to win.  For an additional entry refer to my Instagram account (@withloveandrea) and follow the instructions there.  With this gift card you have more than 60% off most items in the store.  Many items can be worn for non-pregnant readers as well.

I have always worn a lot of black and neutrals. With my growing figure black always seems like a good idea.

I love when I find versatile maternity items.

As soon as I saw this Rag & Bone sweater on the runway last year, I knew I had to have it.  Its perfection.  It has a school girl/preppy vibe with a sexy low cut V neck.  You can dress it up or down and wear it for almost every occasion.

For this post I decided to play up the school girl look and go with my leather shorts and over the knee boots.  I love how sexy and fashionable these boots are.  I had been on the hunt for the perfect over the knee boot, for about a year and finally took the plunge with these.  I was debating between another pair that had a thinner heel and pointed toe.  I opted for the Stuart Weiztman’s since I felt that the thicker heel and rounded toe would make the boots a little more causal.  When I splurge on a pair of shoes I want to be able to wear them as much as I can.   I figured the more casual pair would be perfect for my everyday style and would be more versatile for night and day looks.
