Bump'n Some Style

Jeans, Old Navy | Tank, Old Navy | Blazer, similar | Boots, Frye similar | Bag, Louis Vuitton | Sunnies, F21 | Necklace, Max & Chloe | Watch, Michael Kors

Yep, its happening. The bump is starting to peek out ;] It's actually pretty darn cute and shows even more at the end of the day. I am happy to report that I can still wear most of my clothes but they are starting to get a little tight around the middle and I-DO NOT LIKE TIGHT. I like my clothes to fit gently. 

Maternity style can be so much fun these days. I feel so fortunate to be pregnant during the upcoming warm months, that will allow me to dress in fun maxi skirts and dresses all Spring and Summer long. Until then, I was teetering on even purchasing jeans and happened to pop into Old Navy the other day in search of a baby item and landed flat in the maternity section. They have some great, stylish maternity clothes for super inexpensive. I have never even bought jeans there before (because when you are almost 6 feet tall, you have a rough time with denim fitting in all the right places) but decided to grab a few pairs of maternity jeans and give it a try. So, I grabbed some 12 and 14's thinking I had gained a few el-b's and rolled into the fitting rooms. I was pleasantly surprised that they fell off, making me do a jumping cheer in the mirror and headed back for my normal size. Yes, I am still in my normal size! WooHoo!! However, the waist band on these babies is a 3" band of stretchy amazingness and the jeans are a light stretch in themselves. I wore these to work and swear I will keep them forever. Well maybe not forever but for a really long time. They stayed up all day, fit the booty great and were definitely long enough. I also snagged a couple of these tanks. They are long and wonderfully soft with ruched sides to make them super comfortable and forgiving and come in an array of cute colors and prints. Old Navy has done a great job to help with bump style and I will definitely be back there to shop!

Thank you all for your sweet comments! I am happy to be back and feeling good!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend...

16 Weeks!

Hello Friends!
It has been a little while and a much needed break. If you don't follow me on IG @parlorgirl and/or know me, then I am here to tell you today, we are PREGNANT! I could not be more thrilled, excited and blessed. I was pregnant while in New York last Feb and oh so sick, making the trip a chore to get through. (I do promise to still post pictures even though we are months down the road.) As far as taking a break, I was so sick that just getting out of bed and dressing for work was all I could do. Dry heaving and sleep were my daily rituals along with crackers and ginger ales galore. I even had a couple clients tell me I had worn a bun the last few times they saw me, oops.. I am NOT a good sick person or a downer so I elected to take a break and save you all from that. You're welcome! JK
I have been asked over and over lately about blogging while prego and I think I will continue here occasionally to share my experience and some fun finds for you along the way that will include everything from fashion to skincare, amazing recipes and workouts. Veronika's Blushing shared a wonderful diary of updates during her pregnancy that I just loved seeing and reading in which I am going to do the same. A little will change here as life is all about change and evolving. I hope to bring you more fun, exciting style as we head down this lovely path of our journey together. 
Thank you all for your sweet support and wonderful emails during my break. I am forever grateful for such a sweet following of friends!
