Ray Ban

Summer white

My closet has always consisted of a lot of black and neutrals.  Lately I have been veering towards white.  I love wearing this light and breezy color in the summer.  Something about an all white look makes you feel put together and polished without having the harshness of all black.

This shirt dress has been a staple in my wardrobe for years.  It never goes out of style.  I love investing in simple classic pieces that can be used for years.  These kind of pieces are great wardrobe must haves because you can constantly change your look by pairing them with different accessories and shoes.  The best part is that I have worn this dress pre-pregnancy, during and now postpartum.  It works perfectly with my weight gain and loss.

I chose to keep this look neutral for a day in Palm Springs with my gladiators and fedora.  Gladiators are this summers IT sandals and you can find them everywhere and in every color.  I love these Rebecca Minkoff’s.  They are similar to the Valentino Rockstuds but with a more reasonable price tag.

Denim dress on repeat!!

While the East Coast is still in full fledge winter mode, its been quite the opposite here in LA LA land.  All I want to wear is something easy and breezy.  I’m thankful that baby girl is coming in 4 weeks because I don’t know how pregnant ladies handle their 3rd trimester during the summer.  I’m already constantly hot and sweaty and the weather has been pretty perfect.  It’s a weird feeling for me because normally I’m always cold.  I’m constantly in need of layers when I go out….now I can’t get enough of the AC!!

This denim dress was one of my first pregnancy purchases back in my first trimester.  It’s on the verge of no longer fitting over my growing bump, but lasting through 8 months of pregnancy is pretty good.  Not to mention, it will be a perfect addition to my wardrobe postpartum.

Many fashionistas and bloggers wear or photograph stand out pieces once and then you never see them again.  This could be possible if you had a limitless budget, but for the rest of us this is not an option.  Finding basic pieces that suit your style can and should be worn multiple times.  All you have to do is change your accessories, shoes and handbag and voila you have a new transformed look.  Here is a link of how I styled this dress in the fall during the earlier stages of my pregnancy.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!  There is always so much to be thankful and grateful for and I love that we have a day where we can celebrate this.

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday.  I love the traditional Thanksgiving meal…and anyone who knows me, knows that food is always one of my top priorities.  Today I am so appreciative for my family and friends.  I feel so lucky to be doing what I love with my loving husband who is my best friend.  I have wonderful supportive parents who have always supported and encouraged me to dream big.  Life may not be perfect and there are always things we wish we could have but lets remember to be happy with the blessings we have.

I’m wearing one of my favorite Rails plaid shirts.  I love the colors and the the inner lining.  The quality of their plaid shirts are amazing and when not pregnant the fit is perfect.  Since I can barely do up the shirt with my growing bump I opted to wear it with a simple gray tank.  They are having their Black Friday sales online starting Friday with 30% off everything so be sure to check it out!!

We are relaxing this weekend at the Bacara Resort and Spa and can’t get enough of the beautiful scenery.  As much as I am ready for fall weather, Southern California is just not cooperating.  I was happy though that this weekend was in the 90’s since we were spending it by the pool and beach.  One last time for a tan before the colder weather comes in.

Our Boston terrier loves the beach and we were so happy to bring him along with us.  Most beaches don’t allow dogs but this one does.  We spent the morning running along the sand and playing with our little pup.  These are always very special memories for me and am so happy to spend them with my family.  We can’t wait until our little growing munchkin will be able to join us as well.

With Love….
