Grecian Gown

IMG_9585_Layers_v1

I was able to snag this Ella Moss beauty on sale via Gilt, and I couldn’t be happier (again, not maternity)!  I wore this gown on a beautiful night out to dinner in Maine.  I love the ease and flow of this dress as I walk, and the jersey material makes it super comfortable as well.  In these photos, I am 30 weeks pregnant, and this week, I just hit 32.  Little Monkey will be here before I can blink.

Oh, how I miss this little lake house already!  Wishing I had the lake to jump into and cool off this week; it’s been brutal!  Trying to stay hydrated and enjoy the AC indoors.

Stay cool ya’ll!

Retro Rainbow

IMG_9075_Layers_v1

ModCloth had a sale recently, and I couldn’t help but snag a few retro-style items from their online store.  This rainbow frock totally brightens my day, and I’m in love with these new cat-eye sunnies.  I’m also excited that I was able to score another non-maternity dress to rock while prego.  That way, I can also wear it post-bump!  Little Man is getting bigger and bigger.  And Mom is too.  These photos were taken at 26 weeks, and today I hit week 27.  3rd trimester here we go!

After a beautiful weekend of sunshine, we have been getting some crazy storms up here!  I have to say, I’m glad it wasn’t the opposite.  We spent the weekend getting some errands done, picking up supplies for a small DIY house project, hanging out with friends for a birthday party and a cookout, playing some corn hole, and an impromptu trip to Brighton Beach/Coney Island.

Please send some love and prayers this way as my Uncle is currently having surgery today.  He’s been through a lot these past few months, and this surgery is extremely crucial to his health and well-being.  So any positive thoughts you can spare would be much appreciated!

Hope you all are having a good week so far!

There’s nothing I love more than a pop of neon to accessorize an outfit.  This spring and summer, neon is all the rage, and these are some of my favorite finds.  The weather has been up and down these past few weeks, and I am looking forward to the days when there will be some steady warmth around here.  These bright colors make me happy and can definitely spice up a neutral look.
I had this post prepared for Friday, but in light of the manhunt in Boston, and us having to travel up there for a wedding that day, I thought it was not appropriate.  It was an insane morning, but we made it to the suburbs of Boston safely.  The wedding ceremony had to be moved because of the lockdown, but the show went on!  My dear friend Jamie got married to his bride Kaitlyn, and it was a beautiful wedding.  Jamie and I have known each other since freshman year of high school, and he was my first guy friend at ASHS.  We’ve been through a lot over the years, and it was awesome to be there to celebrate his big day!  With the craziness going on in Boston, this wedding showed there was still some love in the air.  Stay tuned later in the week for some photos from this event!
Since officials were able to catch the second Boston Marathon bomber, we also got the chance to visit with my college roomie, Danielle, (otherwise known at Stewey…don’t ask) along with her husband and baby.  We had a great time walking around the city with them, going out to eat, and seeing first hand what it’s going to be like for us when our Lil’ Monkey gets here.
Unfortunately, I think I caught a cold over the weekend.  I am home with a nasty little bug today.  I hope you all have a good week ahead.

Ombre Necklace {Flair Accessories Series #3}

IMG_5962

Here is the third outfit post in my Flair Accessories Series.  I had so much fun styling these pieces, and this one in particular certainly makes a bold statement.  I love this mix of colors for winter.  While many outfits during this season can feel rather dull, the pops of blue, green, and yellow made me feel vibrant and energetic despite the chilly temps.  How would you style this piece of “Flair” this winter?

I spent most of the weekend hibernating in my Brooklyn abode due to snowy conditions.  I did take a walk on Saturday and tested out some new things I learned in my photography class around the neighborhood.  Other than that, I mostly relaxed, caught up on blogs and e-mails from last week, & watched a few movies.  Last night, I had a dinner date with the hubby at a place called The Costello Plan in our hood.  It’s a really romantic, quiet little spot, and I think I had the best gnocchi I have ever tasted there.  We ended the night watching a bit of the Grammy’s.  Shout out to Mumford & Sons for winning best album for their second album, “Babel.”  I heart them.  I’m sure you’ve heard this song, but here is a little something to get you going this Monday morning.

“I Will Wait” – Mumford & Sons

Rainbow Brights

Jacket: Macy’s / Sweater: GAP Outlet / Skirt: GAP Outlet – similar here / Boots: Steve Madden – similar here / Bracelets: Oia Jules and gift from mother-in-law / Watch: Coach (old) / Necklace: Baublebar / Lipstick: MAC Impassioned 

This outfit was another great find from the GAP Outlet in the Outer Banks, NC.  I was immediately drawn to the vibrant colors of this sweater, and I love how the long sleeves pair with the short melon skirt.  This outfit transfers from the office (mine is pretty laid back!) to a night out easily.  The calf high boots are perfect for day, and you could dress it up with a heel for nighttime, no problem.

Tonight I am attending the 2012 New York Television Festival to support two of my friends and colleagues.  They have created an animated TV pilot that was chosen to premiere at this festival, and I am looking forward to seeing how it turned out.  I am very excited for them, and I wish them the best of luck with their show!
