.swim days.

impromptu shoot with my sister from the beginning of summer :) I was feeling daring and didn't have too many swimsuits at the time ;) this was before I went in and purchased my first Albion Fit swimsuit. my sister edited my pictures and took them for me, I'm really going to miss my blogging buddy when she leaves on her mission next month. she has such an eye for her style and does such a great job learning new things to better herself at photography - she just started a youtube channel and does really cool videos! check her out here ;) and her instagram here 

I'll be honest, being in a swimsuit I feel I notice my 'body flaws' more and it's so easy to criticize ourselves, but we are more than our bodies! AND our bodies are fabulous! they do amazing things for us - so while I'm not super tan or toned - I can still wear my suit with confidence :) I can be proud and happy with my body no matter the 'stage' I'm in.

.black and leopard.

I recently fell in love (again) with my moto jeggings. I wore them to death last year ;) but had totally spaced that I had them in my wardrobe until one day when my jeans weren't clean and I had no other pant options. I reached for them and because of the stretch waistband they're actually my favorite pants for maternity wear too! I was so comfortable in this outfit, cute flats, and oversized graphic tee, and basically leggings. guys. this outfit could not be anymore easy! 

I love the zipper detail on the pants AND these leopard mules are one of my favorite shoes - talk about ease of getting off and on ;) plus they look so chic! 

Navi wanted in on the pictures too ;) isn't she just a doll. everyday she grows a little more and as it does break my heart, each day does get that much more fun and she constantly amazes me with how smart she is.

.nsale haul & try on video.

see my previous nordstrom sale posts here, here and here 

I had such a fun time shopping this years' Nordstrom anniversary sale. honestly what I always do is buy whatever I think I -might- want ;) because I don't know the fit, or what will sell out and end up returning the things that didn't quite work out. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale comes around once a year where all the new fall merchandise goes on sale for two weeks and then goes back up to full price - I'm disappointed I didn't have this video up for you guys while the sale was still going on ... but it is up now ;) and who knows there may be some sales this season! not everything gets restocked right away (or at all) so it's best to keep checking back to see if what you like comes back in stock :) 

I linked everything below :) 

what was your favorite piece from the sale???

.orange lilies.

this swim look I wore about a month ago with Nash's family out boating in northern utah :) it was so fun to be out on the lake and enjoy the sunshine! and I'm loving that I'm able to fit into some cute swimsuits, I was so nervous being pregnant that I wouldn't find ANY fun swimsuits that would flatter me, but Albion Fit has surpassed my thoughts of what could be and have made my dreams come true! see previous swim posts here and here ... they really have THEE cutest suits!

.valentino heels and a third trimester update.

hey friends, I feel like I've been so horrible about talking about this pregnancy ;) it has FLOWN - literally I'm 29 weeks along today and everything is right on track for a healthy babe. the thing is though, I don't make huge kids ;) so she'll be a little one I'm sure. Navi was only 5 lbs 11 oz when she was born and we're all thinking this little girly will also be a petite little thing :) 

I've been feeling really good - most days I forget I'm even pregnant (such a blessing I'm not sick anymore) I've had a few days though where I feel a lot of pressure and feel like my legs and bum are just SO sore. I can honestly hardly move once I've been sitting for too long - I can't even stand up straight. let's just say, I'm way out of shape ;) but I wanted to wait until after I had her to really get into a major routine. I think I've got to do something like yoga though to help with my flexibility and maybe that'll help my muscles and joints too. any success you've had with working out while pregnant ?? I'd love tips and any ideas to ease in.

we are so excited (a bit nervous too) to meet this sweet baby girl. I lot of emotions and thoughts are racing through my mind. like, how will Navi handle a new sibling? I know she'll do great and she'll be the best big helper (she already LOVES baby dolls and obsesses over anyone's baby out in public) but I truly wonder how once the attention is shifted and she has to share mom and dad - just how will she do? 

I'm so excited to have two girls just under two years. I think they'll grow up being the best buddies and happiest little friends :) I'm so excited to have my own two little besties too! we have a name thought out that we're liking but we still aren't ready to announce, just in case ;) we want to take a peek at her once she's here and we feel confident that the name we like suits her :)

this outfit I wore to church a couple sundays ago and I love the drape of this dress, it's got the best movement ;) and I love anything that I can twirl in ;) my heels of course are my favorites and I LOVE the lower heel - it makes them much more practical to wear around and chase a toddler in ;) 

I hope you had a beautiful weekend and are feeling refreshed! 
we toured the parade of homes for salt lake on saturday and my feet are still paying for it ;) but the homes were gorgeous!!! I'll be sharing more soon! :)

and just for fun Old Navy is having an extra 40% off your purchase so I listed a ton of adorable things for little girls ;) because that's where Navi's outfit is from in the pictures above :) we shop there a TON for her because of their adorable style, comfy fabrics and great prices! (not sponsored just wanted to share the good news ;) 


.pmd kiss.

* this post is in collaboration with PMD and the PMD kiss 
all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own 

I know you all know this, but I love lipstick ;) that's my one beauty product that I really splurge on and take the time to really plan out with my outfit. I just love the attention on my lips so when PMD reached out to review their kiss I just knew that it'd be a perfect match for a collaboration. 

the PMD kiss is a 'smart anti-aging lip plumping treatment'. 'it uses pulsating vacuum technology' and there is a formulated serum that helps restore youthfulness and volume to your lips.

I know I can tell a difference, and I can especially feel a difference ;) I actually really enjoyed using the PMD kiss and had used it 3 times that week before this post. I feel like it gave a natural plump, nothing too crazy overboard, and I liked that it was more subtle. over time and with continued use the PMD kiss does help protect and restore your lips shape and fulness. 

it's extremely easy to use and a fast process! taking only a few extra minutes in my routine 

just apply the serum and then use the PMD kiss on the different sections of your lips, the pulsating tip creates a suction to your lips and together they work to bring more volume and natural color to your lips. 

this is a perfect product for those (like myself) that have thinner lips but want a bigger pout ;) the PMD kiss is perfect to use before a date night, a fun time out with the girls, or make it apart of your daily routine - it's safe to use as often as you wish! I topped off my voluminous lips with a mix of pretty colors to create the ultimate night out look.

thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed the post! I love trying out new products and I know that this is one I'll use time and time again! have you tried the PMD kiss?? what did you think of it??
