It’s not often that I’m wearing heels, stiletto heels, these days, but when I do, it’s only for going out!  I love the look of pairing a graphic tee (can’t get enough of these things!) with skinny jeans/leggings, heels, statement jewelry and jacket if cold.  It says you’re trying, but not too hard.  Ummm… excuse the little bit of maternity band peeking out of the top of my pants there, whoops.  I still haven’t invested in one of those Bella Band things yet, maybe I should…

I wore this outfit to a friend’s baby shower the other weekend and it’s the kind of outfit I want to wear every single day as long as the temps are over 65 degrees.  Maxi dress, cardigan (if slightly chilly), wedges… the 3 perfect ingredients to a great Spring/Summer outfit.  Yes, you’ve seen these wedges a bunch already lately and you will most likely be seeing them every week on the blog until I wear them out.  And if you didn’t know, I have a love for Conversation Pieces and this dress only reminds me more of a my deep love for that shop!

Ever since I became a fashion blogger, it really did open up my eyes to all of the fashionable shops out there.  One that I have recently discovered in past years is Boden.  I’ve gotten a handful of Women and Boys clothing from there, but have yet to get some Men pieces as well.  It is a British clothing brand and you know that Europe is always one step ahead of the U.S. in fashion (and many other things)!  Just looking at their site makes me so happy because they’ve got lots of colorful options to brighten up any wardrobe and add a splash of color to a “sea of blah” wardrobe.  Some of my favorite features of the site are buyer reviews, the fact they have sizes R and L and how it lists if an item is in stock, out of stock or low in quantity.  They’ve also got a complete the look section over on the right when you’re looking at a product page and not gonna lie, that’s caught my eye a time or two.






When I first saw this Nancy Dress in Blue Riviera print, I was just drawn to the light colors, the gorgeous and unique pattern and the fact that the dress would be forgiving around the waist.  When I received it and put it on, it immediately took me to the beach… (I seriously wish I could go to a beach right now, too bad I live in Missouri)!  The only thing missing was a neutral beach tote, in which I’m trying to convince my husband to let me buy.  :)

Have you shopped at Boden before?

It’s that time again for the Shopbop Friends and Family sale (I believe it comes around twice a year?)!  They are offering 25% off full priced and sale priced items (some designer exclusions apply) with code INTHEFAMILY14.  Today is the LAST DAY to shop this sale so don’t forget to pick up your favorites!  If you haven’t shopped at Shopbop before, they’ve got a wide range of items varying from low to high price points, a variety of designers from independent to mainstream ones, and a great selection of styles!  Above is a list of items that I’ve fallen in love with just browsing their site.  I love it when sites share the love with their family + friends. :)


I wore this outfit for Day 1 of Go Blog Social.  I love it because I feel like I could wear this outfit into my Grandma days.  It’s got a hint of vintage crochet and floral pants that could either be real stylish or real old lady like depending on the current trend of the season.  But for now, we’ll go with stylish.  These actually do happen to be maternity pants from one of my fave places ever to get maternity clothing, ASOS.








And this is one of the first times I have actually worn by Chanel shoes out that my husband got for me for my birthday last year!  It’s been too cold, snowy, bad weather-y to be able to wear them and I’m so happy that I can finally happily wear them without having to worry (although I’ll need to be aware of Spring rain)!  I just absolutely don’t want to get any marks or water on them.  Do you have shoes that you are too scared to wear because you don’t want to ruin them?  Please tell me I’m not the only one!
