Pregnancy Style Ideas from Pinterest

my first pregnancy i was so sick and so cheap~ that i didn’t really care how i looked.  i didn’t want to spend a lot of money on pregnancy clothes so i basically wore the same 10 things for like 6-7 months.  NOT a good look, and it for sure doesn’t help make a sick pregnant woman feel any better about herself.  this next time around i’m hoping that a little investment in my clothes and looks will help me feel better and somehow make me feel less gross/big.  possible???  i’m hoping so~~ ^^

here are some fun looks i pupped from pinterest!

Mommy Mondays: Mom Style


I recently threw out a huge chunk of my jewelry and wardrobe.  These are a few pieces of jewelry above.  I’m pretty sure if you looked at this pic you’d like, “yea girl…throw that out!”  LOL  BUT for me, these resemble my pre-baby prime where I was super into accessorizing, always wearing things in trend and just… spending a lot of time on myself.

The last 20 months I have not felt SO blah.  With morning sickness, a changing body, a new baby, a very active toddler… taking care of myself and dressing well is not even on my “things to do” list.  It’s a freaking miracle if I’ve showered, brushes my teeth and put stain free clothes on in the morning.  LOL

If you remember these two articles back here and here~ I was trying out different approaches to getting dressed in the morning and looking “together” without much effort.  I’m still following this guideline but… it’s so boring!  hahaha  I like wearing black pants or jeans everyday.  That is easy.  I think what I’m getting bored of is the fact that I wear no jewelry, my hair is always in a ponytail, I don’t even remember the last time I had my nails done, and I just feel so blah.

Any other mamas out there feel like me?  Lately I’ve been longing to get eyelash extensions, try out a new hair color, get a gel manicure and just… feel more like my pre-baby self.  I look back at pictures of myself and miss that girl!  I miss pulling looks together, trying harder, and feeling better.  None of my clothes fit the same or look the same on me.  My face, hair, skin… all different.  Even my SHOES are on permanent strike… sigh.

When I put on old accessories I feel like a poser or I’m wearing someone else’s clothes.  I tried wearing dangly earrings for a while after baby c but I look so weird…

Mike constantly encourages me to take more time for myself but I have such crazy mom guilt attached to doing that.  I feel guilty pampering myself when I feel like I should be spending time with Charlotte or doing something for the house.  Because I work and we have a long commute, I feel like I only get 1-2 hours with C a day and then two full weekend days.  Taking time away from her when I already see her so little seems so selfish… sigh.  I keep reading articles that you have to recharge yourself to help recharge your family~ but~ I’m not there yet.

My ONE summer goal this year is to start working out regularly and start dressing better to feel like my old self.  Or… maybe finally feel like a person in this new mom body/mom life that I’m living in.  Maybe a little summer sun, some days off here and there when C is in daycare, and a little work out will boost me out of my frump slump.

Random… but I’ve been trying to wear lipstick more to help me “feel” more alive and young.  hahaha is that a thing??  Anyway, this is a long rant.  Hopefully there are some mamas out there who feel me!  Please send me comments or advice if you went through this and what you did to get out of it.  xoxoxoxoxo

Happy Monday Ya’ll!

Travel Style

After my trip to NYC with Markel in May, my carry on bag didn’t survive the trip.  (or it did, but it’s a little scratched and i’m trying to use that as an excuse to buy a new one! lol)  Here are some cute travel accessories/totes that I found from Etsy~ aren’t these adorable?

I don’t have another trip planned before the end of the summer but I definitely have my eye on these babies.

Snow Bunnies: Surviving the Polar Vortex with Style

Everyday I hear more bad news about the East Coast.  Snow, Storms, Wind and below freezing temps…  As a Californian, I can’t imagine that kind of cold!  Winter in LA is a medium weight jacket that can still be paired with heels and a t-shirt.  Here’s an inspiration board for Stylish Winter Wear even in the coldest of temperatures…

Summer Style Inspiration Ideas from Pinterest

I Love looking at Pinterest for outfit inspirations!  After wearing jeans and closed toed shoes for so long, I’m itching to wear dresses, skirts, and lots of accessories!

Here is a mix of spring/summer outfits (even for a cold night too)

Gangnam Style

Sound familiar?  Have you been hearing it on the radio, news stations and E! news?  Well, I was most pleasantly surprised to see that Psy made a guest appearance on Ellen and danced with her and Britney Spears!!  I LOVE how Korean Pop Music has made its way into mainstream America.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks and don’t’ know what I’m referring to, don’t fret~ just watch the videos below!

Boyfriend Fashion: Preppy Style

So…Markel doesn’t know it yet…but this summer I plan to revamp his wardrobe with some more preppy pieces.  I’ve decided that preppy looks the best on him and really gives off a clean, put-together look.  He can mix and match without a problem, plus he’ll always look appropriate to every function without much effort.  Button downs, polos, khakis, boat shoes, hats… it’s SO adorable!

Here my inspiration board first, then I’ll show you the new things I’m looking to add to Markel’s wardrobe =D

Hair Style of the Day

http://media-cache4.pinterest.com/upload/99994054196731468_YQvcK9DD_c.jpg

LOVE this casual braid and updo.  This is my go-to hairstyle this week at work!  It takes less than 10 minutes to do and the messier the better =)

I curl my stick straight hair at night a little so that it’ll be easier to work with in the morning.  The added texture allows everyone to look messy and tie into a bun.  Otherwise my straight hair will fall out and be really difficult to work with.

Boyfriend Style, Looks and Fashion

My bf and I were talking last night about fashion and updating his wardrobe.  He’s still wearing t-shirts and jeans from high school/college!  As a man in his mid-twenties…it’s time for a major upgrade.  The conversation led to some ideas of what kind of new pieces should be added and what style would look best on him.

I mainly only like JCrew, Ben Sherman, and Banana Republic.  Is it safe to say, My style is his style?  lol
