With five weeks left until we meet our girl and only four more weeks until Christmas, today I’m sharing my first holiday gift guide of the season for anyone with a little one on the way!
Even though we still have quite a bit to do at the house in preparation for little Miss C’s arrival, I feel better knowing that a lot of the big things have been crossed off our list such as getting our car seats installed, putting the crib and bassinet together, washing her clothes, and knowing that any essentials we might need now or in the future, we can easily purchase at our local Walmart or Walmart.com. Walmart’s shop online, pick up in-store option and their free 2-day delivery makes shopping (and life) so much easier and less stressful, especially with a newborn on the way.
Happy Hump Day, all! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is one week away! It’s my favorite holiday of the year. We get to spend the day with loved ones and savor a delicious home cooked meal. All. Day. Long. My two absolute favorite things. Also, it’s a four day weekend for most of us so I always look forward to the short work week. With Thanksgiving just a week away, I wanted to share a roundup of some fall looks that I posted on my Instagram over the past couple of weeks to give you some inspo. for the upcoming holiday. As always, I’ve added clickable shopping links below. xo
Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a great weekend. We spent the entire weekend “nesting” and getting everything in order for little Miss C’s arrival in about 6 weeks. It makes it so much more real now that her room is ready, her clothes are washed, everything is organized and in place and our car seats are installed. It feels good to get all the important things out of the way so we’re not scrambling last minute. Tomorrow is my 34 week appointment and I just have to order some wall decor, her crib sheets and some misc. items, but otherwise, we’re pretty much ready!
On a side note, I did a mini fall maternity shoot a few weeks back thanks to my girlfriend Lauren so I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from that shoot. My maternity dress is from PinkBlush Maternity who were kind of enough to gift this dress to me. My dress comes in several colors and they have a ton of cute dresses for photo shoots, baby showers and casual everyday items. You can shop my dress below.
It’s poncho season! One of my favorite cold weather accessories that can make your outfit pop when you throw one on. Ponchos/capes are perfect for this time of year because they’re stylish, they keep you warm and can be styled a couple of different ways. You can throw one on over a pair of jeans, a basic top and a pair of booties like how I styled mine for a casual weekend look. A poncho/cape looks ultra chic over a dress or skirt with a long sleeve top and OTK boots, and you can even throw one on over a cute top, leggings and knee high or OTK boots for a comfy yet classy alternative. This cold weather accessory is a timeless piece that won’t go out of style so make sure to add one or two to your wardrobe if you don’t already have one. Below I’m linking 15 ponchos for under $30, under $50 and under $100 to keep you stylish and warm all season long.
Happy Monday! I can’t believe we received our second snow fall already and it’s only the second week of November! We typically wait until just a few days before or the weekend after Thanksgiving to put our Christmas tree up, but I’ve had the itch since last week so we’ll probably be putting our tree up this coming weekend (I’ve already started listening to Christmas music). How about you? Are you ready to start decorating for the holidays or do you want to get through Thanksgiving first?
