As you saw before in this post, I am in love with the Undercover Mama nursing shirt as I always like to wear a tank or shirt underneath my cardigans, sweaters, etc. and these ones have the perfect little clips to attach on to nursing bras.  Not only do they have plain styles, different colors, slimming styles, ones with lace, but they also have a fun polka dot style which I am sporting here!  All you pregnant or nursing mamas, you need to get your hands on one.. or many of these and lucky for you, we are giving one away!!

IMG_2358This is one of my favorite classic Fall looks… tunic, vest, tights, boots.  It’s the perfect formula for a cozy and stylish Fall outfit to keep your toes and body warm!  Through Instagram and the millions of Loop Giveaway contests going on right now, I was able to find out about Patterns & Pops!  They just opened their online boutique and they have some super cute stuff!  I won (yay!) a gift card to their shop and got his chain tunic!  I think the pattern is fun and the colors scream Fall, don’t ya think?  You should check out their shop if you’ve been looking for some new places to shop online!  :)  By the way, I am jumping with joy that my calves can finally fit into all my boots again!  I still have a few sizes to go down and weight to drop.. but I am slowly getting there (a little too slowly but I can’t help myself with those Starbuck’s iced raspberry salted caramel mocha decaf soy with whipped cream drinks… ;)

First of all, yes, that is SNOW you are seeing.  Second of all, yes, that is a maternity/nursing dress you are seeing.  Third of all, yes, I am obsessed with these photos!  The other day, the talented Roxana B., the little lady and I took a trip up to Tibble Fork!  We drove into the mountains and there was snow to be seen, stuck on the ground!  It was pretty amazing… and cold!  I think this is one of my favorite parts of living in Utah, the scenery is just breathtaking and there’s so much of it around here!

And just to give you a little tutorial on this amazing dress that is great to wear for when you are pregnant and after you’ve had your baby and are nursing.. and just for every day even if you aren’t any of those things!  Here ya have it!  Those straps are magical.  They open up and have little holes inside perfect for nursing and then you can tie it around your waist when you are done and no one would ever know what just happened.  ;)  Pretty cool, huh?  I think so!

In the past week or so, we have noticed that Vivian tends to be more aware and when she is awake, she doesn’t love hanging out alone for too long.  Pretty much, she loves to be held, like any other newborn.  As you know, I have been a huge advocate of baby wraps, and I still am, but finding lots of different options to soothe baby is always a great idea.  I recently discovered this Soothe Shirt and knew I wanted to try it.  Basically it’s a tank top that can be worn on it’s own, it can transform into a pouch to hold your newborn, and it has a built in nursing bra so you don’t need to wear a separate one.  How cool is that?  Vivian loves being all cozy and bundled up near my body and she really does love this “shirt”.  And there you have it, another great option for a new mama!

P.S. Winner of the Mimi’s The Look $50 Giveaway is Brooklyn B. J.!  You should receive an email from me shortly, lady!  Congrats!!

I hope you guys aren’t tired of all the photos I take of my little lady, I just can’t help it.  She is seriously like my real life dress up doll.  I think I am starting to love putting together outfits for her way more than putting outfits together for myself these days!  Anyhow, when I heard that my girl Rachel Laukat Photography was looking for some babies to photograph, I just jumped at the opportunity since I love working with her and I just want to capture every little moment with my baby girl since it’s so fleeting!  I love how they turned out and these are some of my fave pics of my little lady and I together! :)  Please stop growing, baby girl!!
