take one, pass it on 2017: days 22-25

These past few days have ended up being extraordinarily eventful–let’s just say a gas leak, a daycare evacuation, and a febrile seizure were involved. On days like those, I am very glad that I already had my outfits planned out so that I can devote my mental energy to the tasks at hand!

day twenty-two:

white lace blouse: J.Crew Factory, similar // red skirt: Loft, similar // black wedge sandals: b.o.c., similar // black + gold sunglasses: Warby Parker Lovett, exact

day twenty-three:

gray tee: J.Crew Factory, exact // red skirt: Loft, similar // leopard flats: Dr. Scholls, exact // black crossbody bag: Sole Society, exact //  black leather strap watch: Kate Spade New York, similar

day twenty-four:

gray tee: J.Crew Factory, exact // skinny jeans: BP, similar // tan jeweled sandals: Mossimo, similar // pink crossbody bag: Old Navy, similar // cognac leather strap watch: Wristology, similar

day twenty-five:

olive dress: Amazon, exact // light chambray button-up: Old Navy, similar // nude wedge sandals: Merona, similar // pink crossbody bag: Old Navy, similar

This round had a few surprises in that some of the items were unexpectedly difficult to re-mix. For some reason, I had the hardest time coming up with ideas for the gray tee. I could have chosen something else, but it was kind of annoying me that I couldn’t get creative. I eventually came up with the two looks you see here, but neither is something I am likely to repeat again. Just a few more days of this challenge left!


ivory all over

DSC_8929I’ve always known that I’m quite fair, but seeing pictures of myself on a regular basis here on the blog reinforces the notion. My skin tone pretty much blends in with the ivory top I’m wearing in these pictures. Granted, I was pretty sick at the time, but it just makes me realize that I need to step up my blush game!

DSC_8924Despite the fact that this outfit emphasizes my status as a pasty princess, I still like it. There’s something about the contrast of distressed jeans with the feminine lace + pearls that really strikes my fancy.

In light of my paleness problem, what’s your favorite blush? I’m always looking for new ones to try…

anniversary outfit

DSC_5680This time of year is always full of celebrations in our household–my niece’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and, most pertinent to this post, our wedding anniversary. It’s a little shocking that Seth and I have already been married for three years. Time flies when you’re having fun, right?

DSC_5677To celebrate the occasion, we just enjoyed a nice dinner at Seasons 52. It wasn’t exactly a wild and crazy night, considering I couldn’t even partake in some celebratory champagne (#pregnancyprobs), but it was fun to get dressed up for each other and eat delicious food 🙂

DSC_5689I wore my one and only “nice” maternity dress that my mom bought for me back in July to wear to a wedding. Let’s just say that it fits much differently than it did when I tried it on for the first time, haha! Nonetheless, I’m glad I got at least one more wear out of it before the end of my pregnancy.

Linking up with Laura for Confident Twosday!


DSC_3435As far as maternity pieces go, this dress has to be one of my favorites. After all, it incorporates two of my favorite things–navy blue and pindots. Plus, I think it’s a pretty classic piece that will be easy to style throughout the fall and winter.

DSC_3432So be prepared to see this dress on repeat from now until December 17th.

DSC_3439This time around, I fancied it up a bit with my pearl studs and some neutral accessories.I felt like such a lady while I stocked up on bananas and eggs 😉
