Carrying Your Baby in Style

When I was pregnant with Olivia I realized how difficult it was to look put together all the time. I wish I had known about Seraphine when I was pregnant with her because they carry some seriously gorgeous dresses. If you are looking for a great maternity line that makes quality stuff, definitely check them out! Feeling good is hard when you are carrying another human being, but a beautiful dress will do wonders to lift your spirit! 
I had mentioned in last week's post with Maxi Cosi, that I was asked to be their ambassador this month and I curated this post based on blues via Seraphine and the new bohemian collection from Maxi Cosi. We have been using this stroller for all of Olivia's walks recently and I just love how easily it folds up -- it's tiny and can fit anywhere and it stands up when folded (huge plus). The infant seat connects to the stroller for easily traveling in the car.

Here is one of the gorgeous maxi dresses from Seraphine in action. They are just as beautiful in person (and no this is not a pregnancy announcement). I just wanted to show how easily these dresses can go from maternity to post-partum!

I have a thing for pants like these. The kind that you put on and instantly feel like dancing around and having a little party. All by yourself.
And let's face it. We all need days like that. 
Days where we can let go of priorities and to-do lists and "stuff" --and just let loose.

Perfect Plaid


{outfit details}
Dress || Sears
Handbag || Sears
Necklace || Kardashian Kollection - Sears



Plaid reminds me of apple cider donuts from the Big E (a ginormous fair that happens here in New England every year). There is something about the leaves changing and the nip in the air that makes me fall in love with this season more & more every year. I have been loving the summer, but I have to admit that I am looking forward to fall & it's cooler weather!

Plaid prints are my favorite way to ring in the fall season and this dress is perfect because it can be layered so many different ways. I already plan to wear it with a denim jacket and some black booties!  

How do you wear your plaid?

Oh, and in case you were wondering, these heels are crazy comfortable. I couldn't believe how they felt after wearing them for awhile. Impressive for heels (& affordable!)

Office Space || Before & After



I have been itching to create a workspace of my own. Nothing crazy, just a tiny little area that I could use to get inspired for the day. Our condo is relatively small (although I am quite sure that all of you NYC people would slap me for saying that). This is actually part of our dining area and I used the corner of the room to create this work space. The walls are a very pale yellow and the room was quite dark at the time and so the walls look totally different here than in real life....but whatevs.

Bohemian Blue


{outfit details}
Dress || August Salt via Piperlime (on sale for $24 with 20% code: FALL20)
Sandals || Marshalls
Olivia's shoes || sahndamarie kids





I was asked this month to be an ambassador for Maxi Cosi's new Bohemian Blue Collection. As always I am blown away and grateful for the opportunities that this blog has given me along the way. Seriously, blown away.
Anyways, this stroller is the one that you can easily fold up in a jiffy and it takes up very minimal space  when storing it in your car or house. It would also be great for small spaces, restaurants, etc. I really love the colors that the new collection comes in and they are very gender neutral. If we are blessed with another baby and it's a boy, I can easily still use this stroller. There is also a great amount of space underneath for my purse, DSLR, and baby bag. Key for success when going out. 
Oh, and did you notice anything else in these photos?
Yes, I totally went darker with my hair. I was so sick of the bleached nasty ends of my hair and wanted something much more natural. I am totally in love with it and I think it will lighten up a bit the more I am in the sun and outside. Anything to save time & money as a new mama! ;)

xo Happy Wednesday!
