When I stumbled upon this dress, I knew I just HAD to have it. The perfect dress for a December wedding AND I can wear it for Christmas? Money well spent in my book! Apparently I wasn’t the only one, because it sold out quick! But I am here with some amazing news! Since I last posted this dress, it’s now back up for sale on the ASOS website! Guess it was so good, they decided to get more in stock! If you order it soon, you can still even have it for Christmas ūüôā

December has SERIOUSLY flown by. I am sitting here staring at my Christmas tree right now, and I’m a little bit sad that it will be my last day to enjoy it in 2015. We are back on the road tomorrow morning to head to Maryland for the holidays. Which means I should probably stop typing and start packing. Holiday cards and wrapping presents will have to wait until we are settled at my parent’s home. We have had a busy month, but I am looking forward to some more family time, friends, laughter, and fun since this really is my favorite time of the year. It’s even more fun this year as I think Nico is actually getting excited for Santa to arrive. The joy on his face makes my little heart melt into a puddle. I cannot wait to see his eyes light up on Christmas morning and imagine it will be purely magical.

Have a great weekend!

XO,

Gina

Boardwalk Tribal

IMG_9132_Layers_v1

Two summer trends I am embracing this season are 1) obviously the maxi which you have seen a lot lately in previous posts, and 2) tribal prints. ¬†I actually received this dress as a gift a summer or two ago, and I broke it out for a quick impromptu beach trip to Brighton Beach/Coney Island. ¬†I also recently found this amazingly bright tribal necklace from Flair Accessories. ¬†It was the last one, and I just had to snag it. ¬†If you’re lucky, she may get some more in stock! ¬†We had a great time watching the sun go down, reading our books with our toes in the sand, and walking along the boardwalk catching the last of the Puerto Rican Day Parade festivities. ¬†I heart the summertime.

The storms seem to be winding down, and we are heading into (hopefully) a gorgeous weekend. ¬†Do you all have anything special planned for Father’s Day? ¬†The hubby and I will be spending our Father’s Day weekend preparing for him to be a father and me to be a mother at a weekend intensive child birth course. ¬†I’m a little nervous, but excited to learn and get ready (as most we can) for our big day ahead.

I also want to wish a Happy Father’s Day to my own Father, as well as my Father-in-law and my Godfather. ¬†You all have made a wonderful impact on my life and my husband’s, and we are so lucky to have the three of you. ¬†While, we won’t see you this weekend, we are looking forward to our family reunion and belated Father’s Day celebration next weekend.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Big Floppy Hat

IMG_8594_Layers_v1

In honor of Kentucky Derby weekend, I packed my big floppy hat and took it with me to Arizona. ¬†I purchased it earlier this spring, and was obviously excited to wear it. ¬†My belly is definitely starting to pop, and I wore this comfy outfit in Phoenix to meet my cousins for dinner. ¬†Would love to see the different ways you wore your big floppy hats that weekend! ¬†Tweet your pics my way to @popcornpandas! ¬†Of course, Preakness hats are more than welcome too. ūüôā

Dreary Monday here in NYC. ¬†We had a great weekend seeing family and friends that were in town visiting, and I worked on creating a baby registry for my little guy. ¬†Wow, and I thought a wedding registry was overwhelming! ¬†Boy, was I wrong! It pretty much took me all weekend, but it’s finally complete. ¬†Can’t believe I will be 24 weeks tomorrow! ¬†Time is flying right by.

Hope you all have a great week!  Memorial Day Weekend is on the horizon.

Dotted in the Desert

IMG_8372_Layers_v1

The weather was beautiful in Southern Arizona, and I was so happy to be rockin’ a sleeveless dress with no jacket! ¬†I wore this little handkerchief hem dress to the Sonoran Desert Museum in Tucson, and I even got a little suntan! ¬†This flowy little number was perfect for my prego belly and very comfortable in cotton. ¬†And I must mention that this dress is not a maternity dress! ¬†I have found that by buying dresses san zippers and in comfy material, I can find items that are much more fashion forward than the typical things I have been finding in the maternity sections (although there have been some good exceptions!)

Today is overcast, a little rainy, and a little chilly here in New York, making me miss that Arizona sun! ¬†This week I’ve been trying to play catch up at work, at the doctor’s, with my DVR, and on life in general. ¬†Hubby had to skip town for a quick business trip to Atlanta, so we are going to celebrate our two year anniversary (bc Arizona just wasn’t enough) with a date night when he returns on Friday.

Happy Wednesday!

Preppy With A Twist {Guilty Jean Series #2}

IMG_7371v2

Here is my 2nd look from the Guilty Jean photo shoot over the weekend. ¬†I was definitely enjoying the sunshine on this beautiful, glorious Saturday! ¬†For this look, I purposefully chose the same Guilty Jean jewelry pieces as my last outfit post to show how versatile this line can be. ¬†Even if you don’t see yourself as someone who is “edgy” or “punk rock,” ¬†you can still glam up your look with Guilty Jean’s designs. ¬†This particular look gives the preppy business casual girl a little edge. ¬†I love how these pieces work so well with a variety of different personal styles, and I plan to rock these jewels no matter what I’m wearing!
