Leopard Lovin’

I love a great leopard print, don’t you? I’m a sucker for this print so when I saw this dress I knew I had to have it! It’s the perfect piece for pregnancy because I can grow into it with leggings or jeggings – like these from H&M or wear it as a dress after baby is born!

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.

Baby It’s (not really) Cold Outside

Temps in Alabama were crazy for Christmas, but we are all used to that by now. We headed down to Alabama last Thursday and spent time with family and had a wonderful time. Now, to get back in the swing of things and take down the Christmas tree-sad. I’m currently sitting by the tree soaking up the last few days of Christmas decorations all while wearing my Work the Metal This Girl Loves Christmas t-shirt. 

I wore this outfit before we left and it was cozy and kept me warm. The temperatures this week will be back down so I’ll take advantage of this go to poncho to cover up my 28 week bump!

Christmas Cards

”Tis the season for Christmas cards! One of my favorite parts about Christmas is giving and receiving fun cards during the holiday season. I love seeing everyone else’s card, it brings me so much joy!

We used Maggie Tait Photography {she’s awesome!} and decided to take our pictures outside in Anchorage. The leaves were falling and it was a beautiful fall day. 

For the cards I went with Vistaprint again this year {hello discounts!} I usually search by number of pictures and I like to put “Merry Christmas” on the card so I narrow it down and find my favorite. Vistaprint is offering 50% off cards right now with code “bestgifts” so if you haven’t ordered yours yet – you still have time!

My outfit is from Work The Metal and boots are Steve Madden (from a few years ago) similar here. Shop my jewelry online at Sincerely Quinley {dot} com!

All Black Everything

My go to color combo most days include a little black with a little more black and I add in stripes sometimes too! This top is from Target and only $19.99!! I love the fit and the fact that I can grow into it once this belly continues to get bigger. PS speaking of bellies, the lady at Subway asked if I was sure I didn’t have two babies in there and thought I was due any day. Ummmm I have 5 months left, thanks ma’am. 

Leather Leggings are a basic that is back for fall and winter 2016, and they make everything seem a little bit more edgy which I love. I found mine from Nordstrom Rack last year and they are back again (with the same great price!). These shoes are a good copy for mine which are old from Ellie Clothing and I have to tell you, I love these shoes!! Grab up a pile of bangles from Sincerely Quinley to finish off the look and add a pop of color. I love red for the holidays! Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner?
