Tuxedo Royal

Its been 3 months since the birth of my little angel and I’m excited that I’m slowly starting to fit into some of my pre-pregnancy clothes.  My favorite go-to look has always been a button down shirt and jeans.  I’m obsessed with this style top.  I love that you can just throw them on and still look put together.  Since I did not fit in any of them during my third trimester, I’m happy to have them back in full wardrobe rotation!

The tuxedo panel gives this classic shirt a little twist.  With the summer weather already here, I decided to pair it with white jeans and my favorite sandals.  Lately, white has been my favorite color, and white denim is a definite must have for the summer season.

I used to be quite self-conscious in light jeans.  I am currently still above my pre-pregnancy weight and I’m wearing white pants constantly.  The trick is to get the pants in the most flattering cut for your figure and to make sure they aren’t too tight.  I think the rips in the knees take the focus and remove the unwanted attention to my thighs.

Love me!!

Today I am a little over 39 weeks pregnant!! WHAT?? How did the time fly so quickly? How is it that baby girl is going to be here in less than a week?  I don’t think I’ve wrapped my mind around that completely!!  She is due March 28th, but really she’ll come whenever she decides she’s ready to make her appearance into the world.

I’m starting to find that dressing is more of a challenge.  These photos were taken a couple weeks ago and I don’t think that this shirt would fit over my current bump situation.  Lately wearing a maternity t-shirt and jeans or a dress are my go-to-looks.  Note to all my pregnant readers:  Invest in maternity T-shirts from the beginning.  I bought a couple of them when I first went maternity shopping.  At that point I really didn’t need them but still wore them.  They have been my savior these past few weeks.  Many other shirts are just not long enough to cover the bump, or wearing really large loose things makes me feel huge with all the swelling and weight gain.  Its nice to have something that accentuates your curves while providing proper coverage.  I will link the ones I have at the end of my post.

Pregnant or not, boyfriend jeans are always a good idea.  So comfortable and chic.  I added a white button down shirt and sweater to dress them up a little.  Since I have stuck with simple versatile pregnancy items, I transform  my look with my accessories.  I added some cobalt blue for a pop of color.

Spring is in the air!!

I’m in my last month of pregnancy and it’s starting to really hit home that baby girl could be here any day now!! I have such mixed feelings.  I’m so excited for her arrival and to finally meet our little angel.  I’m eager to finally start getting back to my pre-pregnancy figure and wear regular clothes.  I’m thrilled that our life will be full of love and excitement, but also scared of all the changes.  A part of me will be sad to no longer have my baby bump and my little girl so close to my heart.  I am one of those people that is petrified of change!!

In less than a few short weeks it will no longer be just my husband and I.  It’s been just the two of us (and Pinxo, our Boston Terrier) for 7 years. We have our routine, and it’s about to be shaken-up.  I don’t know what to expect, but I do know it will be one of the greatest changes of my life.  I know that as soon as I hold our baby girl in my arms, all my fears will go out the window.

These photos were a part of my Maternity photo shoot.  I can’t wait to finally start sharing all those photos with you.  Throughout my pregnancy I have been such an advocate of maternity jeans as a wardrobe staple.  They are so comfortable and let you feel “normal” when all you want to wear are sweats or leggings.  This is especially true in your 3rd Trimester.  Having a pair of colored jeans, especially in the spring and summer is my favorite.  Its a great way to spruce up a look.  These mint Jeans from Motherhood Maternity have been a great piece in my maternity wardrobe.  I love the color, fit and not to mention they are super comfortable!

Winter Whites!!

Fashion rule number #1….no white after labour day!!!  This fashion faux pas has been passed on from generation to generation and we have all grown up hearing this.   These past couple of years white has become a major power player in the fashion world.  It has been a featured color on multiple runways as the color of the season.  No longer are we abiding by these rules, and I love it.

I think an all white look is so chic and powerful.  Pairing white jeans with a textured sweater is a perfect winter look.   Lately the weather in Los Angeles has been like summer so this outfit has a mix of the two seasons.

I was worried that white would be a color to avoid during my late stages of pregnancy.  Once I found these Wendy Bellissimo skinny jeans from Motherhood maternity I realized that this did not have to be the case.  I love the distressed knees and perfect fit.  Maternity jeans are not what they used to be.  They look and fit just like regular jeans without the waistband.
