We are enjoying our "staycation babymoon" this week, so posts are going to be minimal until next week. But I wanted to share some treats I found that I might just have to purchase-they can be my babymoon souvenirs!
Mossimo Knit Maxi Dress
$25 (on sale)
Again, in person this dress looks way different. It has more structure to it, and a little slit on the one side. It is so much cuter then any of the other striped maxis out there, if you have been looking for one.
Bonus: neither of them are maternity, so I can wear them post pregnancy too!
See you next week!
But I have only recently heard about Groopdealz
. It's this great website with discounts on the cutest stuff. I have purchased a bunch of jewelry and some cute baby accessories over the past couple of months. I'm thinking about buying my first article of clothing. I'm really liking this dress (I have a thing for elbow patches right now):
But in black or white. Or both. You have to check the site frequently because things are usually on sale for only a day or so, and some things sell out kinda quick.
It doesn't cost anything to join the site and you can pay with Paypal which makes it super easy (and dangerous) to buy things.
It's definitely worth taking a look. You can find cute and inexpensive gifts here too!
Warning: this is all about maternity clothes and sizing. But, I thought I would share because it is pretty confusing figuring out what size to get and pretty much everything is online only. I just made a few purchases from Old Navy (everything was on sale + 30% off + free shipping = perfection).
I read the customer reviews to help with figuring out my sizing. Everything I ordered seems to fit totally different. The pants have 3 different waistbands-low rise, demi panel, and full panel and I think that affects the sizing.
I am 5'5" (and a half) and my pre-pregnancy size was a 4 or 6 (depending on the brand) and a small/medium. In Old Navy, I wore mostly size 4 and medium in tops. The most helpful customer reviews included these numbers because I could compare pre-pregnancy sizes.
To review what I purchased, I bought mediums in the dress, leggings, lounge pants, and shorts. The dress is the perfect length for my height, but the medium is kinda big (I'm hoping by summer and with my growing belly it will fit a little better). I'm overall the most disappointed with the dress-I probably should have exchanged for a size smaller. The leggings fit perfect and the low rise fit is super comfortable. The pants and shorts are a little big, but the lengths are great, and I am the master at shrinking things so I think they will fit great after one wash.
The capris fit the best and are pretty comfortable with the full panel. I read all the reviews and went with a size 6. These will get a lot of wear.
The Rockstar Jeggings are another fav. I got them in the light and dark blue colors. The first time I ordered I got way too big of a size (size 10) because I read all the reviews and everyone said they ran sooo small and to go 2 sizes up. I disagree. I went with a size 8 the second time around and they fit great. I can see why people recommended 2 sizes up, the demi band isn't very comfortable because of where it hits on your stomach, but as I get bigger, I can fold it over. And I would rather have the pants fit better in the legs and booty.
Sorry for those who are not purchasing maternity clothes right now. But, maybe save it for later or share with a friend who is because it is definitely tricky figuring it all out!
I just found these amazing tops at Target last week. They are made from a light, gauzy material and are perfect for summer nights when the temperature goes down a little.
Merona Women's Breezy Gauze Tunic
I bought the plaid and the chambray. I wanted the white as well, but they didn't have my size. I'll be keeping an eye out for one. Paired with some cute cuffed shorts and flat sandals, these shirts will make a great summer wardrobe staple!
If you are in need of a simple summer flat then look no further. These sandals from Target are the best. And they are on sale this week. So go buy them in every color. I had last summer's version of the same sandal in 3 different colors and I wore them all the time. They are still in pretty good shape too, so I will probably get some use out of them this year.
I actually like this year's version better. They are a little narrower and they are more comfortable.
These are the colors that I have purchased for this summer!
You should probably hurry up and get them before the sale ends. I think they are a whopping 15 bucks regularly and you need that $3 to get a Starbucks coffee to drink while you get your shop on.
I think there are some good things this time around...if I do say so myself!
I just bought a bunch of new shorts for the summer and I thought I would share since I really like them. Both types are from Old Navy.
Perfect Khaki Shorts (3 1/2")
I bought two pairs of these last year and wore them like crazy. They definitely lasted the summer even with the amount of times that I washed them.
Cuffed Linen Blend Shorts (3")
I love how light these linen blend shorts are. They are so comfortable and they have a nice structure to them.
You can't beat the price. They are so similar to shorts that I saw at Gap and J Crew, but more than half the price!
After 5 night shifts in a row, which I never ever ever ever do, I decided to take my zombie-like attitude out for some retail therapy. Here are my 2 favorite buys of the day!
I bought these wedges this past weekend because I was sick and tired of carrying a DSW coupon around. I just had to use it. I just had to. I can't seem to find them anywhere on the internet in the color that I bought so I took my own professional photo for your viewing pleasure.
The brand is G by Guess and they are about 7 inches high, just the way I like 'em. I am into all the different colors (they will go with everything!) and I can't wait for warmer weather so I can wear them. With the coupon they were just under $40. Love that.
I am getting in the mood for Spring clothes and bright colors, so that is the theme of the shopping bag this time around!
I had to get the romper in 2 different colors, it's just too darn cute!
