Maternity

Maternity clothes that are comfy, versatile, high-quality & well-priced? Gap's got it in the bag. Think: better-than-basic leggings, cute nursing tops & the best socks (really...).
You know me, friends. My approach to maternity dressing this last round was...minimalistic, you could say. Tempted as I was to overhaul my entire wardrobe in favor of maternity-specific pieces that would ensure comfy bump'in for the better part of a year, the more realistic approach was to utilize as much of my current wardrobe as possible, mixing in...
Behold (ha!) my most reliable clothing during pregnancy -- a capsule wardrobe, if you will: a few maternity foundation pieces + a handful of versatile, non-maternity essentials. Cohesive, easygoing, comfy & (wisely, if you ask me) investment worthy.
OK pals — buckle up. Three weeks to go on ye olde pregnancy journey, and, as promised, I'm back to talk a little (lotta) bit more about how I've been dressing this time around. As someone who is pretty practical when it comes to investing in my wardrobe (and who is almost positive this is my last time doing...
Let's dig into these 5 fun fashion finds that'll see me through this pregnancy & into spring + summer, b/c they're all right up my timeless, no-regrets, alley. Affordable, too.
Sponsored by Nordstrom and ShopStyle Collective I'm not one of those people who just adores being pregnant. I appreciate it, sure. It certainly is novel, and I celebrate all that it represents. And both times I've felt extremely grateful to be in a position to carry a kiddo with my very own body. (This second time, especially, since I wasn't...
Our mission for this maternity capsule wardrobe? Comfort + practicality in a chic way. Think: breathable tops, a comfy 1-piece, stretchy pants, supportive shoes & all the layers for extra warmth.
Something I love more than anything? A good capsule wardrobe. I’m not one for wearing a million different things throughout the year. If anything, I’m closer to a cartoon character with one rotating outfit. (I can hear my mom snicker as I say this — my closet might not exactly reflect this, but we’re working on it).  Point is, sometimes all it takes...
Dishing up details on all the Backcountry performance pieces I’m wearing & loving: the silkiest turtleneck, compression leggings that truly flatter & a windproof fleece that doesn't overheat.
Sponsored by Backcountry & ShopStyle Collective. Ah, winter on the Northern California Coast. It’s actually one of the most beautiful times of the year here – generally clearer and sunnier than the summer, even – and the hillside sunrises and smoldering ocean sunsets are something else entirely. This year, with Lana being in school, I’ve been trying to take advantage of...
This is the baby gear we swear by -- that we depended on that 1st year — to give our arms a much-deserved break, to help our little champion practice new skills, or even just to clip those sweet little fingernails.
Ah, the first year of having a baby....There’s nothing else like it. That year is magical, beyond any magic you’ve ever known, but also...freaking hard. Thankfully, this modern age has thought of some brilliant items to help out along the way. Many of the heavily used essentials (think pacifiers and bottles) need to also be approved by that fresh, yummy...
This year, I'm donning an actual dress for holiday parties. A little more playful, a little more festive, a little more celebratory...& even maternity friendly.
Sponsored by JCPenney and ShopStyle Collective 'Tis the season for surprises, and perhaps the biggest surprise of all this time? Donning an actual dress for the holidays - and JCPenney has so many great options to style up. I love a gauzy dress in the summer, and I am all about an easy house dress all year round, but when...
For mamas-to-be who wanna fancy up their bump for the holidays, cocktails parties & photoshoots — I found 10 festive dresses. The key point for all of these dresses is comfort (+ lots of room for snacks.)
For mamas-to-be who wanna fancy up their bump for the holidays — I found some festive dresses. Very carefully examined (zooming in on inseams with my eyes practically touching the screen) dresses. A few of them are maternity styles, but I rounded up some non-maternity options for the first trimester, some of which might even work for the second trimester,...
I'm sharing 10 items that we had, loved & will 100% have on hand again for Baby #2. Oh...and all but one? Are under $100. So, whether you're registering yourself or someone else, this is a solid place to start, friends.
Sponsored by Babylist and ShopStyle Collective. Obviously, it took us a while (like...uhhhh, six years) to commit to the idea of expanding our family. The whole cancer storyline threw a wrench in things, but then, even when that was nearly behind us, there was most definitely a sense of whoa, are we really ready to start over...again? that made even...
