Boy or Girl!!

As soon as we found out we were pregnant, other than wishing for a healthy baby, we were curious to determine whether we were having a boy or a girl!!  My husband was especially anxious as he is already planning on painting the nursery and needed to know where we should begin.

One of my best friends who recently had a baby had a gender reveal party!!  This was the first time I had heard of this and knew I had to do the same.  Currently we are 17 weeks pregnant.  Our gender revealing ultrasound was scheduled for week 20.  On our 12 week appointment my OBGYN casually mentioned that it could be possible to see the baby’s gender at 16 weeks, and if the technician allowed us to sneak in the room, we could possibly find out then.  My husband was convinced we were finally finding out!!  At our 16 week appointment, we sweet talked and convinced our doctor and the technician to sneak us in the room and take a look.  Although he was ready to find out right at that moment, I had asked them to write it down on a piece of paper and seal it.  We brought this paper to our favorite bakery and had them put either pink of blue icing on the inside.  Pictures and details of the party will be on my next blog post!!

Husbands look: Jacket: Etro (old)   Pants: Scalpers   Tie: Scalpers (old)   Shoes: Toms Similar Here and Here

As soon as I saw this dress I knew it was going to be my outfit for the party!!  It has an A line cut with a front pleat that fits my growing baby bump perfectly.  I love the embellished collar detail, it makes this simple dress complete with no accessories needed.  I paired the dress with simple metallic heels.  The dress is so bright I knew I needed something neutral to balance it out.  These were my wedding heels and I guess are my go to special occasion pumps!!

Find out what we are having in my next post in a few days!!  Thanks again for sharing this amazing journey with me.

With Love…..

It’s the middle of September and it feels like we are in full blown summer here in LA.  I am such a fan of fall fashion and am so excited to start wearing my layers.  Unfortunately this heat wave is just not conducive to that.  I decided to dress for the weather and stuck with summer bright colors for todays post.

I think its important to wear colors that match your skin tone and your comfort level.  As you will soon see I seem to wear a lot of neutral colors: black, white and grays are my top 3.  I have stepped out of my comfort zone today for my colorful color blocking ensemble.  I’m so pale and have blue/green eyes so I feel that blue hues and pink/red hues match my complexion best.  Today I am wearing cobalt blue and light pink, I think the blue adds such a pop while the pink has a more subtle roll.

With Love…..
