This post is written in collaboration with Lord & Taylor. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that we truly love!
This neutral maternity dress is something I am planning on living in until this baby’s eviction date. It has the perfect amount of flow to it and it feels like I am wearing my pajamas! I love that there are so many ways you can style it! I am wearing it with leather slide heels here but you could totally rock it with a pair of Converse sneakers and a baseball cap! Dress it up or down and your bump will grow perfectly into it. I scooped up these low heel mules because I desperately needed a pair of black shoes for my wardrobe.
What I’m Wearing: TART Maternity Dress // Ally Bucket Bag // Nanette Lepore Leather Slide Heels // Free People Cardigan
In desperate need of: a tan 😉
Best part about this outfit?! You can get it for 30% off during Lord & Taylor’s Friends & Family sale from April 4-17 you can get 30% off Regular, Sale & Clearance items! Here are the exclusions from the sale.
For some reason, I always steer clear of black and I have no idea why! I love that these are comfortable and so versatile! I think they would look adorable with a pair of cut-off shorts and a loose fitting black top that tucks right into the front of the shorts! Lastly, this adorable little bucket purse! It’s the perfect size for me right now because I can fit my necessities plus a diaper and some wipes 😉 It’s small enough that I don’t feel like I am carrying around this awkward diaper bag and I love that it goes with everything!
I have been opting to only own items that are classic and versatile. My previous stylized self would have bought all the boho and occasional bright pieces but my wardrobe is much more laid back and classic now. Plus, these pieces will never go out of style and I feel like I will get so much more longevity with them! What is one piece in your wardrobe that you couldn’t live without?!
22 Week Bump Update
Size: Baby is the size of a papaya! At nearly 1 pound, baby is growing at a lightening speed!
Weight gained: Up 20 lbs. Maybe more, who’s counting? 😉 I can tell you that I couldn’t possibly fit into my pre-pregnancy pants if I tried!
Symptoms: Nasal congestion/sinus issues but that’s it right now!
Favorite wardrobe piece to wear right now: Leggings and this dress I just got!
Boy or girl? We aren’t finding out! It’s the best thing ever!
Nursery update…. This little nugget won’t have a dedicated nursery per se. There will be a small area in the guest room that will have a crib and dresser 🙂 I will be sure to post the space when it’s completed (which probably won’t be until after he/she is born)
Pregnancy related Item I have loved this week: My Burt’s Bees belly/body oil. I used this with all three pregnancies and it smells so delicious that I want to eat it! I have also stayed away from stretch marks, so fingers crossed!
1 thing I am currently having trouble with: Keeping up with an appropriate amount of water intake! WHY is this so difficult?! I am always dehydrated!
1 moment I loved about this past week: At the end of the day, cuddling with my oldest and having her talk with the baby 🙂
1 thing I plan to do for myself this week: Make a hair appointment! It’s been on my to-do list for the last 3 weeks! HA.
Food cravings: Strawberry shortcake. C’MON summer!
Currently working on: Looking up certain methods (like the Bradley method) that will help stabilize my emotional self during the L&D of this third baby! 🙂
