GUEST READY WITH SERENA AND LILY

In case you missed it, we moved into our new home this weekend. I’m not sure I would recommend moving at 31 weeks pregnant to anyone I know, but thankfully I had a rockstar husband and moving team to help with the heavy lifting. To be honest, I would do it a hundred times over because I love our new place so much! We are slowly but surely getting settled into the new house and I am already feeling so at ease (even amongst the chaos).

WHAT I’VE BEEN WEARING

I have been meaning to write this post since I announced by pregnancy back in August. A few of you sweethearts have been asking where I have been, how I’ve been feeling and wondering where I’ve been. I am doing really great, and I owe you a major update on my second trimester now that I am almost halfway through my third (eek!). If I am being honest, I have loved slowing down a bit and spending quality time with the people I love most. I have been off my phone for the majority of the Summer and Fall to really enjoy this pregnancy. I took a step back from the blog because something just needed to give. Between work (which I absolutely love), buying our first house, renovating said house, and moving at 31 weeks pregnant, I just found myself not finding the right words or stories to share here. Now, that all of the madness is almost behind us (just in time for another big life change to happen), I honestly have so much to tell you! So, minus the lack of a good outfit to share, I want to tell you about all of the pieces I have been wearing the last few months. I almost created a capsule-like wardrobe for myself because I am determined not to buy too many things that I won’t want to wear post-baby.

A BIG SALE AND SOME EVEN BIGGER NEWS!

Hi!! Long time, no talk! I am really excited to share some big news with you! Between being 27 weeks pregnant (feeling great by the way!) and a crazy work schedule lately, something had to give, hence the radio silence. So…are you ready for the big news? WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We are seriously so excited and have been moving quickly on a few small renovation projects and updates these last couple weeks before we move in. I am dying to getting organized and start the nursery. This house is going to be an ongoing project and I can’t wait to share with you! More on this exciting news this week, but today is all about my favorite sale of the year…the Shopbop Sitewide Sale!

It has been a minute since I did a deep dive on the site. To be honest, clothes just are not getting me as excited these days. I have been getting creative with shopping my closet, but I am running out of options that work. Now that we are slowing starting to see a shift in temperatures, I am looking forward to dressing new accessory with some cozy sweaters, coats, and of course, athleisure, oh and a few maternity jean styles. I already picked up these two pairs: dark denim and white (thanks to Mackenzie’s rec!).

I have been lusting over styles from Ulla Johnson, Vince, and Hatch. See some of the styles I already purchased and are currently in my cart!

Trends not to be missed:

Warm Tones | The New Modest | Untamed Texture Bags | Amped Up Earrings

Use the code STOCKUP19 for 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500. The sale ends September 27th at midnight, so stock up on your favorites today before they go back to full price.

AUGUST DETAILS

Hey August, nice to see you again. It’s my favorite month of the year for many reasons but this year feels different…it’s a little more magical. My birthday was the best way to kick off the new month and our a little announcement was just the icing on the cake. Although the temps are at an all time high, there is just nothing I love more than the summer sun, long summer nights, and the ease that summer brings before the hustle and bustle of the Fall.
