10 Bump Friendly Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

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

My Fall Maternity Shoot

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.

Thanks for stopping by!

The Must-Have Cold Weather Accessory: Poncho

Shop the Post

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.

A Display Baby Shower for the Modern Mom

Happy Tuesday!! I hope your week is off to a great start. This past weekend was filled with family, good friends, laughter and a whole lot of love at our beautiful baby shower honoring little Miss C who will be making her debut in just eight short weeks. My incredibly kind, generous and thoughtful mother-in-law went above and beyond (yet again) to make this day extra special for us. She kept everything a surprise until the day of and wouldn’t let me lift a finger when it came to the planning, setup or cleanup the day of.

My MIL always does such a wonderful job planning parties so I knew she wouldn’t let this day be anything less than perfect. She also planned our luau theme gender reveal party this past summer and our display bridal shower five years ago. Since our display bridal shower was such a hit and allowed for more time to visit with our guests, we decided to host a display shower this time around as well.

Our special day was more than we could’ve asked for thanks to all of our family and friends who were able to attend and who so generously showered us with their love and generous gifts for our little one. We’re so grateful to be surrounded by such loving people and we’re so lucky to have each and every one of them by our side.

You can see some of my favorite photos from our baby shower below and shop my sequin dress, in addition to a few other fun styles. Also, thank you to Basic Invite for gifting us our baby shower invitations and allowing me to create the invites that I wanted.
