Adrian was out on a business trip to China all last week, so to celebrate his return we all went out for some dinner at one of our favorite Tex-Mex places (Chuy's -- a must-eat for anyone visiting Texas!).  I wanted to dress it up a bit for the occasion and put on some heels, but kept it casual yet edgy with a mix of this floral blazer, gold foil maternity top, and leather pants.  I had bought this maternity top towards the end of my last pregnancy and only wore it once before I delivered Dylan so I was happy to get some more wear out of this this time around!  Paired with these stretchy leather pants (thank goodness for the elastic waistband that folds down easily!) and a colorful jacket that adds just the right amount of pink, this outfit was perfect for a night of chowing down on some fajitas!

Summer / Fall Transition Styling


Cardigan: Banana Republic (old, similar)
Top: Isabella Oliver Bromley Wrap Top via Pickles & Ice Cream - on loan (buy - 20% of w/ cuteandlittle, non-maternity option, non-maternity)
Bottom: Rag & Bone White Skinny Jeans - wearing size 24 (buy - on sale!)
Shoes: Forever 21 (old, similar)
Bag: Taleen Tote via HMK c/o (similar, similar)
Necklace: BaubleBar 'Phoenix Star' Bib (sold out, similar)
Bracelet: Forever 21 (old, similar)
Watch: Michael Kors 'Lexington' MK5556 (buy)
Hair: NuMe Magic Wand in 32mm (buy - 50% w/ 50RUSH)
Lipstick: MAC Pro Longwear in Soft Sell (buy)

Isabella Oliver maternity pieces are all about luxury pieces that are effortlessly chic and can be worn during pregnancy and beyond!  I actually first heard of this brand when Kate Middleton was pregnant as she dressed her bump in absolutely beautiful pieces from this label.  True to their promise, this Isabella Oliver top is made of super soft jersey fabric that has amazing stretch yet has the ability to recover back to its original shape so that it can be worn again and again without losing its support.  The gathered side fabric is bump-flattering but I can see this as something that can be worn even post pregnancy and beyond!  Not to mention, the wrap style and v-neck opening would make it perfect for nursing as well.  This top is definitely something that would have a cost per wear of next to nothing in my closet and make for a great investment (especially with my 20% off code, see above)!

I went for a simple pairing and styled this top with white skinny jeans and a long cardigan.  To me, this is one of my quintessential looks to transition from summer into fall (we're still having temps in the 80s here in Dallas!).  The wool fedora is the final touch to add that fall flavor and the statement necklace pulled it all together.

And on a quick sale note -- Nordstrom is having a price-match sale on my favorite dark-wash skinny jeans!  They run true to size and I personally wear a size 24 for reference (see on me).  I love that their denim is high density, so they don't sag and stretch out by the end of the day and even help my legs look just a little bit leaner.  These jeans don't go on sale often, so pick one up while they're at this special price!  And Nordstrom's free shipping and returns makes buying completely worry free too!

Hope you all had a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

Trip to Pumpkin Village


A couple weekends ago we took our annual trip out to see the Pumpkin Village at Dallas Arboretum. This was our third year going with Dylan and every year has been a different experience for us as Dylan gets older and starts enjoying different things.  At just over 2 years old now, this year was all about running, jumping, and exploring!

Weekend Sales - J.Crew Factory, Ann Taylor, Old Navy

It looks like it's sales season and now is a great time to pick up a few things or get started early on that Christmas shopping! I've listed a few of my picks from different sales happening around the web this weekend.

J.Crew Factory - 30% off w/ YAY30

I'm a J.Crew addict so I'm always looking out for a sale at the regular store or the outlet.  If I wasn't pregnant, I'd be all over this burgundy pleated skirt!  I'm a sucker for pleats and the color is just perfect for fall!  This polka-dot pencil skirt is also perfect for both work and play and at it would even look cute paired with this striped sunglasses sweater.

Ann Taylor - 50% off w/ STYLE50

Ann Taylor is one of my favorite shops for work wear and those more polished wardrobe additions.  I'm absolutely in love with this patent tortoise skinny belt and this lace / woven sweatshirt is right up my alley.  And I can't recommend enough the pebbled tote -- I have mine from last season in beige and it's one of my all-time favorites!  For a classy yet head-turning statement necklace, get this multistrand pearl necklace as it's a perfect mix of classy yet fun.

Old Navy - 25% off w/ TREAT (ends Saturday!)

And finally, just a few from Old Navy as I couldn't not share these classic fall items like the quilted puffer vest (love the white!), a graphic tee, and a buffalo check plaid shirt (be sure to check out the red / black color and the green plaid!).


Have a great weekend and happy shopping!

I'm a big fan of using jewelry to instantly glam up an outfit and add that special touch to any look.  I recently added a few BaubleBar pieces to my collection and wanted to share a mini review as well as let you guys know about their current Friends & Family 25% off sale going on right now!

The two statement necklaces that I picked up are even more beautiful in person than they were on the website.  The pieces are sturdy and well-made, with attention to detail and workmanship, and came packaged in layers of padding (and individual pouches too!) to ensure a safe delivery.  Unfortunately they sold out quickly but here are a couple that are similar (1, 2).  As for the ear jacket earring, it's a new style for me but I totally love how unique it is and the spiked sparkles really add an edgy pop that it's not one of my favorite pieces!

As for the Friends & Family sale, it's 25% off the entire site with code FRIENDS25!  My picks:
