Happy Fourth of July everyone!! This is one of my favorite holidays and I am so excited to spend it with my little one this year. We are keeping it low key and just having a BBQ with the four of us (including our dog Chauncey, of course) and making some pies and going to watch fireworks in the backyard. We live on a hill that overlooks the city so we can always see multiple firework shows going on and it is pretty fun.

Also, I just wanted to let you know about a little scheduled site maintanance. My site has been running slow recently so I am migrating to a new server tonight/tomorrow morning at 1AM to allow for more traffic and faster load times. If you happen to check during those times, it will probably be down for a couple hours, so just a heads up:)

The Fourth of July also always brings about some pretty awesome sales.. so here are some sales to take advantage of this weekend:

Swim Season

Today I have another swim post with Nordstrom and this time I chose this red Tommy Bahama tankini that I absolutely LOVE! If you didn’t have a belly (it is not a maternity suit) it would pretty much look like a one piece and there is nothing more that I love than a good one piece! All growing up I wore bikinis only (I still wear them occasionally) and I thought one pieces and tankinis were so lame. But now I love a good one piece and think it is so classy! It also doesn’t hurt for those days you just ate a burrito or something and suddenly everyone wants to go swimming haha :)

Anyways, I love the fit of this suit and also love that it comes in so many colors. I wore it with my trusty Ray Ban’s – I love these all black ones! I had a pair and David and I lost them while we were in Europe recently and I was so stinking bummed!! So I had to get another pair because they are so classic and every girl/guy needs a pair! Plus they are on SALE right now at Nordstrom! Can’t beat that.

Here are some more summer suits from Nordstrom that I am loving…

Holy cow did this week fly by or what?? So happy it is Friday!! Every weekend I just think how I am that much closer to meeting my little guy! Lately all we do on weekends is try new food haha not sure if that is because of being pregnant and wanting to eat non stop or what but I must say its been pretty fun! We went to the food truck round up in Provo tonight and I had a hot dog with mac n cheese on it and I think I was in heaven…. mac n cheese should just be put on everything!

Anyways, about this outfit – I am in love with all orchid/purple clothes for summer – I just think it is the prettiest color! I know this one is maternity so below are some other orchid dresses I love :) I also have a tutorial for you on how to do this Dutch turned fishtail braid! Watch it, here!

I hope you all have a fab weekend!! xoxo

I literally could not be more excited that summer is just around the corner. I have a slight addiction to swim suits and sunglasses and am a firm believer that there are never enough :) Nordstrom is by far the number one place I go to for anything before I look anywhere else because the customer service just cannot be beat. So even if something is on sale somewhere else I will always check to see if Nordstrom has it too and price match it there!

Ray Ban’s are always my go to (as I am sure you can tell by how much I wear them!) because they are so classic and can go with pretty much anything.. not to mention I haven’t seen a person that they don’t look good on. It is also nice because my husband and I can share our Ray Ban’s since they are gender neutral (in my opinion)!

I have also been getting swim suits and cover ups for our upcoming vacations and fell in lovvve with this Tommy Bahama cover up from Nordstrom!! It is seriously so perfect for breezy days/nights on the beach and is such a flattering fit. It also doesn’t hurt that it works pregnant and not pregnant :) Always a bonus these days! Annnnd maybe I have already worn it as a sweater with leggings as well… haha its too cute not to.

Hope you guys like and happy summer shopping xo

**Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post

I love pairing tees with distressed jeans and heels – it is one of my favorite go to looks. Hope you guys enjoy and hope everyone had a good weekend!! xoxo

This has been my absolute most worn pregnancy top so far! I am actually so mad because I accidentally shrunk it before I took pics in it so it used to be longer than this and I actually liked a fit a lot more, dang dryer! But luckily I can still wear it post baby and it should be plenty long enough without this belly! If you are pregnant though I definitely recommend getting it because it has the best fit ever and is so so cute in person! But if you dry your clothes make sure you get a size bigger :)

I also wanted to thank those of you who gave recommendations for Chicago and sent birthday wishes!! I wish we had more time in Chicago but loved reading your recommendations and tried as many as we could!

Today’s post is all about these Reebok Skyscape Sneakers and the different ways I wear them! Quite honestly, they are THEE most comfortable shoes you could ever imagine which makes them hard to resist when deciding what shoes to run errands in that day or to wear to yoga and pilates. Not to mention they make the perfect shoes to travel in because when I get on the plane usually first things first I take off my shoes but these, you honestly don’t even realize you have them on, not even kidding! I am really wishing I had them while my husband and I were in Europe because they would have been the perfect shoes for exploring the city and not worrying about blisters (I am usually always getting blisters)!

The first look is how I style them when going to pilates or some kind of work out, which is my favorite thing to do to get me energized for the day. I usually run errands afterwards or before so they are perfect for just that, especially while 8 months pregnant :). The second look is how I wear my Skyscapes when I am going to the airport, the mall, out to lunch, etc. !

I hope you guys enjoy and have a good day! xo

I have always loved all things baseball-ish, in clothing that is. I always loved when my dad would take me to baseball games just so I could wear a cute sporty get up. Baseball tee’s have always been a favorite of mine for casual days and so I obviously had to get this dress, especially since it can be worn with or without a baby bump! Speaking of which.. I am 35 weeks on Tuesday and I feel like I am in the final countdown! So crazy – I kind of hope these last few weeks fly by even though everyone keeps telling me to enjoy my time – I am just so antsy!

Hope you all have a good Monday!!! And don’t forget to enter the Fashionphile giveaway! :)

Okay I know my roots are pretty horrific.. I have been so lazy about touching them up! I just haven’t even cared one bit… and then I see pics and realize maybe I should care a little more. But eh, it is winter so it is what it is, I will take any excuse not to leave the house.

I am obsessed with anything comfy enough I can also wear to bed that night because lets be honest what girl likes to get ready for bed? This sweater is the softest thing on the planet and I can’t take it off. Plus anything that says USA on it is a no brainer for me. Love cozy sweaters for cold weather :)

Hope you all had a good weekend and have fun plans for NYE! I will be showing my NYE outfit tomorrow so be sure to check back xo

Okay these pants….. will literally be the best purchase of your life. I am not joking. (And no, this is not a sponsored post… heck I wish this was sponsored and these were free, haha.) They are just.. I just can’t explain. They don’t stretch out, (I have worn them 5 times this week, I would know) and they have the oh so coveted side zipper (my obvious selling point along with the 32 inch inseam). I started following Anine on IG and fell in love with all of her pieces. Plus, she is gorgeous and has the most adorable family which then furthers my obsession. Her pieces are the basics that every girl needs. I could go on, but I won’t.

Oh and this (‘slightly obnoxious’) sweater is just in good fun- I thought it was pretty comical and had to get it.. considering not everyone ‘loves’ fashion bloggers ;)

David and I just spent the evening watching the sunset and the lightening bolts in the sky (meanwhile Chauncey was jumping as high as he could trying to reach the pears growing in the trees) .. and now it is pouring rain :) I love nights like these. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and enjoy time with your loved ones!!! xox

Hope everyone is having a good day! Chauncey is currently begging for my attention which is convenient since I don’t have much to say today! Life is pretty crazy here lately as David and I are planning and getting ready for several upcoming things (no, we are not getting ready for a baby haha) but some other exciting/scary things! Thanks for stopping by today, love all of you xx
