Friday Favorites – Best clothing stores to shop for baby

Whether you’re having your first or your 8th, shopping for a new baby is always the best freaking thing ever.
My little boy is due March 4th and I think my absolute favorite things during this pregnancy have been shopping/buying him little outfits and decorating his nursery.
Let me tell ya though, It can be hard finding unique/cute clothes that aren’t ridiculously over priced.
With a new addition coming into the family, that also means new expenses…
which means, nobodyyyyy wants to spend $60 on a shirt that baby will grow out of in a week.
Today’s Friday Favorites post is all about my favorite places to buy baby clothing (so far)
Obviously I’m still new at this whole thing!

I’ll link a few different stores and also share a few of my favorite items from each that you can click on and shop!!

Super Affordable
TargetH&M, Old Navy/Gap, Zara
Here are a few cute options from these stores. All of these have TONS of options and tons of different styles…(I’m not able to link items for y’all from Zara because they aren’t integrated with rewardStyle BUT they have the freaking cutest stuff ever!!!)

More unique items/still affordable
Etsy – Etsy is such a great spot for special/unique/custom outfits and accessories and most Etsy shops are super affordable, and an added bonus – you’re helping out a small business!!

Higher Quality/Pricier
Nordstrom, Spearmint Baby

Swaddle Love

Adorable Childrens Boutiques

 This post was WAY more work than I thought it was going to be, but I’m hoping some of you soon to be mamas will find your new favorite place to shop for your little one(s)!!
Hope y’all have a great weekend!!

Merry Christmas Y’all!!!

Okay so I know it’s Christmas morning but I wanted to share this outfit with y’all since I got SO many questions about the details whenever I posted it on Instagram a couple days ago!
This is probably the coziest maternity look I’ve worn like EVER!
I’m actually wearing this sweater backwards..I shared a post wearing it normal here.
I got this sweater from ShopHopes, but it’s currently sold out –
don’t worry I linked the exact same one for y’all below!!
I ended up getting this sweater in a medium for a more oversized look and I LOVE it so much.

Obviously today’s post is super quick and to the point because DUH it’s Christmas!!!
Before I go…If you’re going to splurge on ONE thing this year, make it these OTK boots y’all,
I promise you will not regret it. Seriously the best purchase I made all year.

Okay off to make my mamas famous “sausage balls” and get ready for the day!

Merry Christmas and THANK YOU so much for reading my blog and supporting me
& just being the best ever!
Love y’all tons.

Friday Favorites – Maternity Pajamas!!

It’s Friday, and it’s ALMOST Christmas!!!!!!

Okay, so I asked all of you on Instagram if you really wanted this post and I was pleasantly
surprised with just how many of you NEEDED a post like this in your life.
So today is all about maternity pajamas!
From cozy sweats all the way to sexy lingerie, I’ve got ya covered!
And the best part is all of these options are SUPER affordable.

I’m actually really sad that I didn’t purchase more maternity pajamas,
I think I’m going to have to grab one or two of those Asos jammies, they’re just too cute!
It’s SO important to feel comfy while sleeping during pregnancy.
Hopefully some of these options help all you mamas to be!

I probably won’t have another post up until Tuesday so
Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Best purchases of 2017

Okay guys I have been so busy and totally clueless on what to share with y’all this week!
So after seeing a few other bloggers put together posts similar to this I figured I’d do one as well!
So today I’m sharing the BEST purchases I made in 2017 and why I love them!
I’ll be sharing each product and a little description/why I love it and then you’ll see clickable images with direct links that will take you to the item!
(If you don’t see each item listed, make sure you click the arrow next to the images to see the rest!)

  • This Safavieh Rug – We have this in our living room and are constantly getting SO many compliments. The colors are so much fun and add a little brightness to our mostly neutral home! This rug is also SUPER easy to keep clean, which is GREAT since we have a golden retriever and baby boy on the way.
  • This book – I actually just ordered so I haven’t read it yet but I know it’s going to be amazing. I have the “Praying wife” version and it is phenomenal so I have no doubt this one will be just as good!
  • These leggings – Kyle got these for me in both the gray and navy colors and I NEVER want to take them off! They are extremely cozy and will be a total lifesaver for after baby comes and I want to be comfy in the house but also still look cute.
  • This bralette – guys I have been LIVING in bralettes since being pregnant. I cannot stand the thought of anything hugging or squeezing around my chest so these have been E V E R Y T H I N G. Aerie has SO many cute and unique options when it comes to comfy and gorgeous bralettes.
  • This Cardigan – I actually ordered this not too long ago and I have worn it NON STOP, I love that the sleeve length is a little shorter and how cozy and oversized it is. It’s super easy to style, throw it on over a dress or jeans or leggings or WHATEVER.
  • This tote bag – I snagged this from Target and I will definitely be using it as a diaper bag when Hayes gets here! It’s the perfect size and the colors make it go with almost any outfit!
  • These Sunnies – are hands down my absolute fav. I have a really small and narrow head so it’s always SO hard finding sunglasses that don’t look ridiculous on me. These are PERFECT.
  • This “Let’s stay at home” sign is always a huge hit in our home! We have it above our mantle and it just makes the perfect accent to our cozy living room.
  • This decorative pillow – As soon as I laid eyes on this I knew I needed it in my life. It’s so much cuter in person and has so much character. I just purchased one and we have it sitting by the fireplace for decoration.
  • These maternity leggings – I wear these multiple times a week and RAVE about them. They are the only pair of leggings that I have been able to *comfortably* wear since the beginning of my pregnancy, the support they give your tummy is phenomenal.
  • This Kendra Necklace – I’m not a big jewelry person but I LOVED how dainty this necklace was, I wear it every single day.
  • This diaper bag insert – Seriously best invention ever, this insert will fit into any tote bag so you don’t have to carry the same exact diaper bag every day.
  • These sneaks – I mean, I think the photo says it all…..SO freaking cute, and unbelievably comfy I might add!
  • Y’all LOVED this tee when I shared it on Instagram! I’ve gotta admit I totally love it too and wear it on the regular, not only is the phrase hilarious but this shirt is made of the comfiest fabric!
  • This Headboard – I was nervous ordering this because of the mixed reviews but we L O V E it and it looks gorgeous in our bedroom! Such a steal.
  • This pop socket – Okay guys, It took me a while to jump on the pop socket train but I honestly don’t know how I waited so long, these are THE best things ever.
  • This shower curtain – is probably in my top 5 of favorite purchases, I’m obsessed with the detailing and anytime anyone comes over they just HAVE to know where it’s from so they can get one for their home!
  • These OTK boots – I’ve had a lot of over the knee boots over the years and these are the first pair that actually STAY UP and are actually really comfortable. There’s nothing worse than wearing a cute outfit but having to yank on your boots all day to keep them up – I HIGHLY recommend these, I’m about to order them in another color and will probably never order OTK boots from anywhere else
  • This Cardigan/ Jacket – is just super classic and a “staple” every girl needs in her closet. I wore it on our babymoon in San Diego and I think I’m going to wear it on Christmas day as well!
  • This wall decor – We have something SUPER similar on our entry way table (that isn’t available anymore) and it’s just the perfect piece for your home if you’re going for that homey farmhouse vibe!
  • This gold mirrored tray – I have this on my bedside table with some flowers and my perfumes in it and it’s just super pretty, and who doesn’t love pretty things?
  • I’m a huge lover of Chanel fragrances and I love having this quick spray that I can carry around anywhere!
  • These booties are probably my #1 favorite purchase of the year – I can’t even count how many times I wore them. They go with EVERYthing, are so comfy, and are seriously the cutest booties. I love that they are super transitional as well!

Phewwwww, Okay this post took way longer to put together than I anticipated
so hopefully y’all enjoyed it and are able to snag some of these items that i’m obsessed with!
We’re doing our maternity shoot this afternoon and I am SO freaking excited!!!!
Can’t wait to show y’all the photos!
Happy almost Friday!

The perfect gift for an expecting Mama

Y’all!!!! I am SO excited about today’s post!!
I have teamed up with Totesavvy to share one of their incredible products with you.

As all of you know, I’m a fashion lover, and my favorite thing in the entire world
is putting different looks together.
Since becoming pregnant I have been on the hunt for “the perfect” diaper bag.
I’ve actually found a ton that I love, but none of them are cheap…and none of them can really go with every outfit. Now if you’re a fashion lover like me, you know that you can’t wear the same bag with every single outfit, it just doesn’t work like that!
Whether you’re a soon to be mama or already have your baby in your arms,
Totesavvy is about to change your life!!
You no longer need to purchase multiple expensive diaper bags,
or feel frustrated carrying the same diaper bag every day that doesn’t match your outfit.

Totesavy is an organizational insert that turns ANY handbag into a fully functional diaper bag!!
I’ll be sharing the “tote version” but they also have a mini version for smaller bags!!
The ToteSavvy original insert fits perfectly into my new favorite bag from Target!

The ToteSavvy Original insert has 11 multi-size pockets, an insulated pocket, a compact changing mat, key clasp, and a flat pocket!! I mean, every mamas dream right?!

If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift for a soon to be mama,
or if you know a mama in need of this diaper bag insert in her life, I’ve got GREAT news!!
Totesavvy is currently having a Holiday S A L E and you can take 25% off your order with code “SPARKLE”.
I will be using this baby religiously once Hayes gets here.
Now hurry and go grab one for yourself, a friend, or a family member while they’re on sale!!!

Happy Tuesday!
