bracelet: TJMaxx (similar)
wedges: Kate Spade (similar cheaper version)

Coming back from such an exciting weekend, full of parties, family and fun is hard. But I love my quiet Mondays and actually look forward to taking it easy (if easy were laundry, cooking and grocery shopping ha!). I love waking up in the morning and lounging in bed knowing that I don't have to be anywhere at a certain time. Making big breakfast and just spending time playing with Jonathan, catching up on my emails and planning the week. 
Speaking of planning, I'm planning on shaking this beba out of me as soon as possible. Although it's getting a little hard to work out (I took only one walk last week), I'm getting to the point where I will do anything to make sure she arrives on time.

Hello everyone! I can't believe how fast time is flying and it seems like in every pictures the bum is getting bigger ha. There is a little bit left to go and I'm counting down the days. Among being active and eating less sodium, I'm also taking red raspberry leaf tea capsules - the reviews seem to suggest that they help tone the uterus and ease the labor (if there is such thing ;-). One thing I'm praying for is not to carry past 40 weeks with which the capsules supposedly help also. Do any of you have advice or experience with that? Considering I was late the first time, I will take anything!

top: Tahari via TJMaxx (similar here and here under $20!!!)

You know when you buy something and it seems like it's a bit too expensive? You do like it (more like love it), the color and the fit are just perfect. You get home and still think about returning it, then you decide to wait and see if you will find something to wear it with? And of course, you do! Then you wear it again, and by that time it's time to cut the tag off, because honestly it has the smell of your perfume all over it. Now you have to throw it in the wash and after that you wear it couple more times.
Well, that's the story of this top. At first I was on the edge about getting it but loved how it fit my belly, as well as the mint color (can it be more perfect?). I have contemplated about returning it but it's just the perfect top for this summer. It's flowy and light, long enough to cover the belly and I'm sure it's going to work after I have the baby. So, guess what? It's staying! Have you found your perfect mint top this summer?

Maternity Photoshoot

I still can't believe that this baby is going to be a girl. Honestly, I can't imagine our life with a little fashionista (because you know she will take after her mama). But at the same time, I can't wait to make her little bows and headbands, buy cutest dresses and match with her brother. 
Being 34 weeks, it's becoming harder and harder to find something to wear. I cannot wear skirts and practically live in my maternity shorts. But for special occasions, like weddings and showers, as well as church, I'm running out of ideas. Remixing my old stretchy dresses every way possible seems to be a good idea but with hotter temperatures it's harder to layer. 
This dress is a winner in my book - its light chiffon material makes me feel like I'm flying in the clouds. And the pretty sequin top makes it so much more unique - no jewelry needed. Check out more maternity (and non maternity that will work for bump) dresses below.

Hello there! How was your weekend? Hopefully you enjoyed some relaxation and celebrated dads. We had a busy few days and I'm hoping to spend  Monday relaxing (yeah right!?). With baby girl coming soon and us not having anything ready (except a few swaddle blankets), there is a lot to do. I'm not trying to rush the time and hoping she doesn't come too early (or late for that matter). So between cleaning out the garage, putting together furniture for the kids' room and making some frozen meals, I have the next month planned out. It's going to be one busy summer, that's for sure!

First time I styled this dress here

Managing to wear non maternity clothes that fit during pregnancy is a hard task, but it's possible! You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort either. To give you some ideas, here are my tips.

- Size Up. If you like a certain piece of clothing, buy a size (or two) larger than your pre-pregnancy size. It's easier to take it to the tailor later and have it taken in, then wear it for only a few weeks. That's exactly what I'm planning on doing with this eyelet dress.

- Jersey Dresses. Stretchy and comfy jersey fabric is easily the best things that has ever happened to my bump. I buy my normal size and have it stretch over the belly, so later I will have something to wear as well.

- Empire Waist and Boxy Fit. I knot that empire waist is not in style right now, but there are some non maternity dresses and tops that will fit the description. Also, a lot of tops right now have a very boxy and relaxed fit. I was able to find about 5-6 tops at TJMaxx the other day, that weren't maternity but fit me well (of course I couldn't buy all of them so I had to pick one).

Hope that helps your search for cute clothes for the bump. Thank you for stopping by!
