Before I had Teagan I didn’t put too much thought into what I wore because I wasn’t chasing around a baby, bending over to change diapers, or cleaning up messes. Now, I have to be a little more selective and put some thought into my outfit choices.

Summers would be filled with my short, A-line dresses and my cute little jean shorts. This summer those aren’t quite as realistic so what’s a mom to do? Maxi or knee length dresses and some high-waisted shorts that aren’t too short are now my go to bottoms when we are out and about while some yoga pants or athletic shorts and tanks are my go to at home outfit.

While I was pregnant, the PinkBlush maternity brand was pretty much the only brand of clothes I wore. I just fell in love. They are all so cute but also super comfortable and great quality. Another great thing about their maternity clothes is they can be worn post pregnancy; and yes that means I totally still wear some of them and style them a little differently.

I have recently fell in love with their women’s shop. Same great quality and comfort. They are all totally functional and so many nursing friendly options as well. All their clothes are perfect for my new mom style!

Since I spent the better part of Teagan’s first year in their maternity or lounge clothes because I didn’t know what to wear I decided it was time to get two super cute pieces to make myself feel good. Since I now have some great date night pieces, maybe Cary and I can start dating each other again.

The first piece I got was this beautiful blouse. I didn’t have anything like it and I decided to get something that was a little outside of my comfort zone and I’m so happy I did. While it’s a little dressier, still so functional for us mama’s with a baby on our hip! You can shop this blouse here.

The second piece I got was this black dress. I have super long legs so the longer sides got me. I like short dresses but bending over with a now toddler makes that a task so this dress was a great mix of both. You can shop it here.

 

**I am 5’7″ and got a small in both pieces.

  • Saturday Bumpday! 🤰🏼 17 weeks today! I posted on my blog yesterday all about finding out we were pregnant, a little about my NIPT with @maternit21plus , and our gender reveal video and more pictures!! The link is in my bio 💙
  • This little handsome guy turned T W O ✌🏼 yesterday and we get to celebrate him this weekend! It’s safe to say he’s really got the whole stud number down in his 2 short years. I feel so grateful to have friends with kids the same age and I love getting to watch them grow together! Happy Birthday sweet Camden! 🎉💙 #ittakesavillage
  • S I X T E E N  W E E K S today! Time seems to be flying by with this little boy! 💙 Cary and I each have two boy names we love, sadly they aren’t the same ones. We agreed on our little gal, Teagan, so quickly so please HELP and comment below and leave your suggestions on baby boy names! 💙
  • They haven’t yet mastered how to show each other affection! Teagan’s like “don’t touch me, boy!” And Cam’s like “get off my fire truck 🚒 “ I swear watching these two grow up together has been one of the highlights for me 😍
  • I’m afraid to say it but I feel like I might be turning a page slowly with this Hyperemesis. While that part of pregnancy has completely sucked, taken the joy out of my days, and made being a good mom to Teagan really difficult, there is one thing that has made this pregnancy so much easier and that’s @maternit21plus 💙 their non invasive prenatal test has taken some stress out of my days knowing my sweet little boy is healthy and I don’t have to worry about any surprises in his genetic health come September. That is getting me through each hard day of this pregnancy. We can’t wait to meet you little guy 💙💙 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • I’m 15 weeks pregnant today. I don’t even know how that’s possible! People aren’t lying when they said time goes by so quickly the second pregnancy. Feeling so grateful to be growing this little guy and chasing my sweet girl around🤰🏼

  • I don’t know how I survived life or motherhood before I started using oils. I turn to these products for my energy boost, to give me a good nights sleep, for a little extra confidence, to tame toddler tantrums, to support a healthy pregnancy and so much more. I was so skeptical but I jumped in with both feet and we’ve never looked back 🌿
  • Those moments when you really hope your child’s sass will help them lead a company and not a prison gang 🤦🏼‍♀️
