28 Week Bump Update



It’s here! The third trimester – aka crunch time. I am THRILLED to welcome a baby girl into our lives in March. We are over the moon and already feel like she’s with us between the moving around and feeling her kick everyday to the doctors appointments becoming more and more frequent.

My ultimate hope for Halle is that she will be kind, caring, and loving. People ask me all of the time “do you hope she’s a girly girl who loves clothes?” I don’t care if she likes clothes or not, or if she prefers dance over field hockey, but I hope and pray daily that she is a joy to others and that she loves Christ from an early age. 

She is already such a joy in our lives and I pray she lights up a path wherever she goes. I want her to know that kindness is the post important quality and what you wear does not matter. That you can do anything you set your mind to and to take a leap of faith even when it is scary. 

Mom and Dad will be right there to catch you, sweet angel.

Denim Jacket

I finally found a denim jacket that is both soft and structured but not too boxy or too big. Who knew it would be such a hard task to find? It is. 

I paired my new jacket with these all time favorite black distressed skinnies from Old Navy and boots by Frye

Transitioning from summer to fall is one of the hardest transitions for most people. It’s HOT then it feels good. You want to look cute now in your fall finds but can’t handle the heat with the layers. I have paired this denim jacket with a dress, shorts/top and I’ll be incorporating it for the remainder of the summer and into the fall.

Floral Frock

A couple of weeks ago Ray LaMontagne came into town and we had the chance to see him perform at The Louisville Palace. I chose this dress for the event because I was too hot for jeans and I have also been anxiously awaiting a chance to wear this new dress from Ellie Clothing

The colors in this dress are understated but the cutout shoulders and lace up top keep the dress edgy and fresh for fall. I’ll be wearing this floral frock when the temps cool off (just add a leather jacket like this one for 40% off and booties like these for 25% off – both at Nordstrom).



Let Freedom Ring 

As we all take a moment to celebrate Freedom with friends and family, I wanted to share with you a few favorites I’ll be wearing for the upcoming holiday. 

What’s a long weekend without a few refreshments? Sadly for me (it’s actually not SO bad), I am participating in the Whole30 program so the sweet treats and alcoholic drinks will have to take a backseat for a while. Excuse me while I sip my white ginger tea and munch on my blueberry/strawberry combo. 

Whenever I have a relaxing weekend I usually throw on denim shorts like these or these

Pretty In Floral 

When I first purchased this dress it was for a wedding I attended last month. I didn’t realize how much bang I would get for my buck. This is the second time wearing it and I decided to tone it down for a casual day with these Jack Rogers Sandals and Sincerely Quinley tassel necklace. The colorful print just draws you in and it’s the perfect asset to my summer wardrobe. The fit is easy and the print goes with just about any color. Win win!
