Maternity Wear Guide

I am sure every woman approaches maternity wear differently, but for me, I wanted to still dress decently cute and buy as few things as possible. I ended up investing in a few expensive basics as well as some more inexpensive basic shirts. Pretty much everything I bought ended up being black, white or gray. I made these outfits a little more exciting by pairing them with open button-ups, cardigans, and vests. As for shoes I very quickly couldn't wear heels or flats so I have survived for the past 9 months in Tods, Converse Chucks, Nike Free's and Tom's. From the list below my absolute must-haves were the Hatch leggings, Ingrid & Isabel yoga pants, and all of the comfy shirts from Target in pretty much every color they came in. I additionally purchased one nice dress from Envie de Fraise which came in handy for any and all events I had to attend throughout the pregnancy. My J Brand maternity jeans actually got worn the least of all of my maternity stuff. Unless you think you will wear them or live in a much colder climate than I do I would stick with black leggings throughout the pregnancy.

Cutest Baby Gear

I have tried to be practical and only buy the things we will really need for our newborn, but with all of the cute stuff out there that can be incredibly difficult sometimes. I have given in and purchased a few things that are just too cute to live without. 

  1.   Oh Joy for Target  collection is seriously some cute stuff. I ended up buying the photo blocks, a crib sheet and the changing pad cover |  2.  The Lamb belly time blanket from  Baby Braithwaite  is crazy soft and cuddly |  3.  I am kind of in love with the    June & January  knotted headbands |  4.  and  5.  are both from the adorable brand  Freshly Picked  |  6.  All little girls need a little  Lily Pulitzer

Baskets & Decor

So I know this seems like an extremely boring post topic. Especially for a first post, but recently I have become more and more basket crazy. Cute baskets seem to be all over Pinterest, in Target and in every online/brick and mortar store I visit. As I prepare to have my first child and because I moved a few months ago into a new space I have been buying quite a few baskets for organization and storage. Here are a few that I am currently in love with.
