.stripes, army green and a tote.

top, old via Kohl's // army green pants (borrowed from sisters closet) ;) // J.Crew flats, old // Grace Adele bag (last year) // Ray Ban sunglasses // Alex and Ani bracelet 

this outfit has been on repeat my entire pregnancy but I finally got it documented! these jeans sit really low rise so I'm able to wear my normal size in them still (don't know how much longer I can go without a belly band or even the elastic trick, but I'm going to try!) I loved this button up knit blouse waaaaay before I got pregnant but it's seriously been my lifesaver! it's neutral so I wear it all. the. time. and it seems to just fit perfectly over my ever growing stomach

  my bag is no longer available for purchase because Grace Adele is a brand that was discontinued (I sold it, so I have a LOT of their bags and I really stocked up when I knew they'd be no longer available) so I got this bag and a few others in hopes that someday I could use them as a diaper bag! and that day is coming soon!! it's large inside (and I WILL be doing a post on the bags once I have my baby's items in there too) but I wanted to link below a few more fun totes that could easily be shared with baby items :) 

I hope you have a wonderful day! :)

.why I love eShakti - summer '15.

I love this custom dress from eShakti :) 
these pictures were taken last year (when I didn't have my baby bump) and it seriously is one of my go-to, reach for dresses. I love the way it fits, and the fact that I got to pick my sleeves and dress length. that is a huge factor into why I like to shop at eShakti

now for something extra fun :) eShakti is giving my readers $35 off their purchase from now until June 30! I compiled a few of my favorites into a cute list on Pinterest! :) they have so many fun items for this summer season. dresses and skirts of course, ;) but now shorts, pants and tops are available too!

 I love how eShakti has also created sections depending on which style you're shopping for. I have been wanting more of a boho vibe for my summer wardrobe and I'm completely sold in the Bohemian section of their site! EShakti has currated the best selection and organized it all for us! I also love a good floral print and Summer Botanicals has beautiful options. This year a top style trend has been simplicity and eShakti's Contemporary fashion selection is the perfect place to find exactly what's on trend. 

use my coupon code 'stripesinbloom35' for the $35 off :)

thanks for reading and happy shopping!

.heritwine maternity dress.

 Heritwine Maternity dress c/o // H&M denim jacket // Fossil watch // Ray Ban sunglasses // Anthropologie sandals (last year)

this is my first ever maternity piece and I've got to say - that I really love that it fits!! who knew right??!! even if I wasn't pregnant I would wear this adorable dress :) it has an adjustable tie right under the bust line so you can customize the fit to your desired size. even though this dress is bold in color and in pattern, I can think of a bunch of fun ways to style it this summer and I can't wait to wear it more! I styled it simply with a light denim jacket, sandals and a necklace that matched the beautiful coral color. Heritwine Maternity has a growing selection of beautiful dresses, as well as tops and bottoms too. I'm loving this dress for the 4th of July and I'm obsessed with this lace one as well. I'm not going to lie, getting dressed in anything but flowy tops and sweat bottoms has been a tricky task, but the pieces from Heritwine Maternity are fashionable, comfortable and also can be worn after pregnancy! :) 

I am 28 weeks along my friends!! 28 weeks! like, where has the time gone?? 
and where did this fuller bump come from?! :) I'm happy about it, but also getting a bit nervous. it's a nervous / excited feeling though. I'm almost sad that Berlin won't be an only child anymore. ;) she's been the best baby for us but I know she'll be an awesome big sister ;) :) and I hope they grow up being best pals. Berlin was being a silly girl and kept getting tangled in her leash, she's not patient when she wants to walk and I want to stop and take pictures. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and be sure to check out my instagram for a giveaway for Heritwine Maternity! :)

.early june - zara baby girl.

.zara early june selection for babes.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7

today I'm excited to share a few of my favorite baby girl pieces from Zara! :) I LOVE Zara for fun, whimsical, yet sophisticated clothing for babes! they sell from newborn through adult ages (talk about a one stop shop!) my baby girl will be in summer clothes when she's around 9 months so I've been picking up a few things here and there for her and just couldn't help but share what I'm loving. aren't fruits on clothes the cutest for babies ;) and I LOVE lace and crochet details!! 

I hope you have a great day! thank you for reading :)

.casual, cut off and comfortable.

Forever 21 tee, old // Rocksbox necklace // Fossil watch // Lularoe skirt //
Payless booties (here for $15!) 

this look I wore to church this past sunday, you know those looks that you think you look great in but when you look at yourself in pics .. you realize maybe ;) that wasn't the most flattering. well that's what I thought of these booties with this skirt - I have short legs and by having my shirt completely cover my belly (with it being my widest point too) and then the booties coming up past my ankles I lose a LOT of my leg length in this outfit. I still liked this outfit :) would I wear it again, probably ;) I just don't look very tall - but that's okay! just thought I'd share a tip with you all! 

to appear taller and slimmer, choose shoes that show off your ankles - no straps or thick material near that area and if I had tucked in my shirt and pulled my skirt up to my narrowest point (under my bust) I would've looked like I had longer legs :) *** let me tell you though! ;) as much as I LOVE fashion .... right now I'm about comfort and this outfit was perfect for my growing body :) 

being 26 weeks is so surreal. I'm so happy and excited for the next coming months! baby showers, finishing her nursery and getting our house ready for her arrival in September. she's all I think about and wonder of. Nash and I (I think even Berlin) ;) can't even wait!!

.pastel whites.

Bohme cardigan // Kohl's tank (old) // Ted Baker heels via Nordstrom Rack, similar fit, budget option, great bargain find // Hollister jeans (old) // Grace Adele bag (old) linked a bunch of my favorites below // Fossil watch // Kendra Scott earrings via Rocksbox, love these in pink // Essie polish 'cute as a button'

I LOVE this warmer weather and I am loving wearing light neutrals together!! what's so fun about 'summer whites' is they don't have to be perfectly white to 'go' together :) I've mixed creams and whites in the look above and am really pleased with how they pair with the light pastels! 

I'll be straight up and say that this wasn't the most comfortable outfit (because everything was just so snug) ;) but if I had these jeans and tank in a bigger size .. whoa baby! I'd be wearing this ALL summer long!! my body is growing and I'm in need of some new clothes :) do I shop maternity? or just buy in a slightly bigger size?? I need your opinion! 

thanks for stopping by :) and
I hope you're enjoying your first week of June!

.perfectly mint accessories.

Kendra Scott necklace via Gilt // Kendra Scott earrings via Rocksbox // Fossil watch // J.Crew popover top (old) // Hollister jeans (old) // Anthropologie sandals (last year)

I wanted to share my love of accessories today! yesterday I shared my Rocksbox unboxing video and when I received that box you guys ... my heart skipped a beat! I was SO excited to see these Kendra Scott Alex earrings! and .. they just so happen to match the Kendra Scott necklace that I already owned! :) plus I have a mint watch ... and you know how I love my mint ;) seen here and here , so I had to do a look involving these accessories together! 

The green and mint is so fresh and crisp paired with the white denim. For summer I like simple outfits, but with bold colors or stark white basics I feel polished and (let's face it, I need help looking tan) so white will do that! ;) 

have a happy wednesday!
