How is it already Thursday?? We are heading out of town for the weekend and I am no where near ready.. Nobody is packed and my house and car are a mess… Ugh…

So, my dress above is a few years old, but soooo soft and comfortable! I got it when I was pregnant with Lib, but it works for after too! It is an extra small from JCrew Factory, but obviously ran big because I wore it like 8 months pregnant! My sister says I shouldn’t wear it when I’m not pregnant, but I’m choosing to ignore her! Haha I linked a cute one above from Target and my sunnies are on sale!!

Hope you all have a fab weekend!!

Thanks for reading!

Hope you all had a great weekend!! It was finally nice and hot again, so we had lots of pool time!! Libbey’s hair is turning blonde from all the sun! Soooo cute!!

I ordered a few new bikinis and a one piece from Victoria Secret last week and got them in over the weekend and I loooove them!! Most of their swim stuff is on sale!! I would definitely check it out!!

So, I used to tell myself that I didn’t look good in prints… In the last couple of years I have accumulated many printed pants!! They are soooo fun!! I’m still not a big fan of prints on my shirts, but love me a fun printed pair of cropped pants and shorts! J.Crew Factory is wear I have found most of mine! They are having a huuuuge sale right now!! I linked a few pair above, along with a cute pair from Ann Taylor!!

Happy Friday!!! This week flew by! I’m 17 weeks already! What?! This pregnancy is flying by! I started feeling little kicks and flutters this past week! My husband even felt a few! I didn’t feel Miss Libbey until 18 weeks! It is the most amazing feeling!!
Okay, so let’s talk about my J.Crew shorts!! You guys need them!! They are soooo comfortable! I bought a similar pair last year and loved them and remember thinking they would be perfect as maternity shorts too because of the elastic waist band! I justified buying 4 more this year because I can wear them pregnant or not pregnant! Haha J.Crew has an extra 20% off your purchase right now! Happy shopping!
(Sorry for the pale gross legs.. I need a tan in my near future!)

The More the Merrier

I can’t believe it is already Thursday! Sheesh! It is starting to cool down and stay cool, so that means I need to switch my closets… Ugh, it is an all day affair.. I am going to a bonfire this weekend, so I need to dig out my flannels and vests, so I might as well switch my closets. I am totally obsessed with vests! I may or may not own like 15 “puffy” vests… Oops! But, I mean it is cold in Illinois from mid September until April most years, so y’all girl has to have her options! Obviously I need a few more 🙂 The more puffy vests the merrier! I’m sure JD would disagree, but he doesn’t count! Hehe Below are a few that I am craving!!

So, I have had this top all winter and never wore it!! I have no idea why!! I loooove it! I’m slightly in love with the rhinestones around the neck! So cute!! I tried on a statement necklace with it, but I was afraid it was too much, so opted to go with a simple long bow necklace! I’ll be wearing the blouse year round! How cute will it be with a cardi over it?!
Top: J.Crew Factory(bought this winter), love this!
Shorts: J. Crew Factory(last year) similar
Necklace: Forever 21(old), just bought this!
