My brother popped by for a quick visit this past weekend to surprise my Grandma for her birthday.  It turned out that wasn’t the only surprise of the weekend because he also brought back an emerald green Michael Kors bag for me too!  It’s been a while since I’ve treated myself to a new bag (okay okay, since the baby then…) so this was a really nice surprise.

Back when I was shopping for maternity dresses, I wanted to make sure I could wear it post pregnancy as well.  This blue dropped waist dress was perfect for my growing belly at the time (here) and now I’ve repurposed it for another look.  It’s good to recycle, even when it comes to fashion. 😉

What an adventure its been!  I’ve had so much fun styling this bump and now I’m even more excited to style ‘her’ too! I’ve been asked what three items I could not live without during pregnancy…here they are:

1) Pregnancy leggings!  Oh my gosh, they were the most comfortable thing ever!  Totally kept me warm during the winter months!

2) Maternity jeans – absolutely necessary and totally worth the investment for a good pair.

3) Long tank tops – covers the belly and opens the doors to so many things to wear in your closet such as cardigans, blazers and vests.

4) Maxi dress – A definite must if you are very pregnant in the summer (which i was!)  At that point, all I wanted to wear were one pieces and just pop on some accessories to top off the look!

5) Flats – Or any comfortable pair of shoes that will go with a lot of things.  I wore my nude sandals a lot in the summer time.  It’s neutral color made it easy to match anything!

Okay, so that wasn’t three…but I wanted to share as much as I could to help ya new mamas and future new mamas out there!

Thanks for reading! xoxo
