Recently Finn was lucky enough to get a pair of Freshly Picked moccasins. Let me just say...amazing!
She has been gifted other types of similar shoes and the Freshly Picked moccs blew me away with quality and fit.
Miss Finn has narrow feet, so most of the shoes I have gotten for her are too wide. The Freshly Picked moccs are elasticized around the ankle. Not only do they fit like a glove, but Finn can't get them off of her feet (and I promise you she has tried!).
Now on to the fun stuff! Freshly Picked has been kind enough to give a pair of their moccasins away! And to sweeten the deal, InFinnity Bibs is adding 2 bibs to the giveaway.
Here's the details:
1. The giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
2. The winner will receive 1 pair of Freshly Picked moccasins in their choice of color/size & 2 InFinnity Bibs in their choice of patterns.

Finn's moccs were c/o Freshly Picked but all opinions expressed above are my own.
I thought I would share some of my summer staples. I like to mix it up with my summer wardrobe, but there are a few pieces that I just keep buying summer after summer!
I bought one of these a few years ago (I actually wore it in this blog post
) and I love this romper. It is super comfy and simple. You can dress it up with a statement necklace and some great sandals or pair with converse sneaks and make it casual. PS: I cut the neck tie string off and always wear it strapless. This year I bought the romper in this pretty chambray-like blue and the striped style as well.
Old Navy Twill Shorts
(3 1/2") $19.94
I have been buying shorts from Old Navy every summer. They wash really well, don't get wrinkled super easy, and they fit great!
H&M Jersey Tank Top
I have these in every color. They are really long and flowy if you are trying to cover your booty. But, they also look cute tucked in or tied in a little knot to make them shorter. And, c'mon, you can't beat the price!
And just a heads up: InFinnity Bibs is pairing up with Freshly Picked for a great giveaway! Keep an eye out this Friday for Finn's Freshly Picked review and the giveaway details!
These earrings from Etsy
. I love the minimalist look. I want in silver and gold because I can't get enough of the mixed metal look right now!
I Found this on Pinterest--A Watermelon Breeze
: 3 cups cubed chilled watermelon, 1 cup coconut water, juice of 1 fresh lime, ice if desired, sprig of mint. Put all ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth. Makes two servings. Sounds so refreshing for the summer!
And then there's my constant obsession:
Pigtails, Pools, and Sun Hats...summer must be here!
Don't forget to check out the Etsy Shop
for lots of new summer InFinnity Bib styles! I also have a deal going on right now: 3 bibs for $30. Use code: three4thirty at checkout!
Sorry for my little hiatus-I am trying to find a happy balance with everything I used to accomplish + a baby now, and the blog needed a few weeks break so I could catch up with other things. With that said, here is a quick list of my current obsessions. Spoiler alert: the list is very Target heavy-they are bringing their A game this season.
Mossimo Kamari Tall Buckle Boots
I love the slightly distressed look and the tabs at the top that stick out and give the allusion of a longer and slimmer leg.
Mossimo Vernie Pump $29.99 Speaking of giving the allusion of long legs, how about some nude pumps? I love the simplicity of these heels...and that they are not 5 inches tall!
This picture shows 2 of my fav things right now. I love this statement necklace that I purchased from Groopdealz (it currently is not on the site)-here
is a very similar/possibly identical option for a little more money. Also, I love love love Finns pacifier clips. They are from Etsy
. The seller does a beautiful job with the construction, there are so many cute little details!
Here is Finn first thing in the morning. She is not for sale-but she is currently my biggest obsession. I am taking applications for a glam squad for that mess of hair she is rockin.
With the fall wedding season around the corner, I am always looking for inexpensive dresses to wear. Not only to the wedding, but to the shower and other functions as well. I am not a fan of wearing the same dress to more then one event, but I can justify it by not spending over $30 per dress...right?
Not for a wedding, although I wish it came in other colors because I really love this dress, but maybe a wedding or baby shower?
I love how simple this dress is. You can dress it up with a great statement necklace, simple strappy heels, and a coordinating clutch. Easy, and you can re-wear it with different accessories and it would not be noticeable that it is the same dress.
There are so many variations of a lace shift dress out there right now, but for some reason, this one caught my eye. I love the navy for one (I mostly see black and white options) and I like the lace on the bottom hem.
All of these dresses are from Forever21 and they are all under $30. There are a lot of great options out there right now if you are in need of a few good dresses!
Well, I guess I should really call it the outfit of the date, not the day because I wore scrubs all day and then changed into this for date night.
I really love this black cotton maxi dress that I bought from Old Navy a few months back. It is the perfect simple summer dress that can be dressed up or down for different occasions. I actually bought it in regular and long so that I had an option to wear it with heels or flats.
It is a very flattering cut for a lot of different body types. And, it comes in a few different colors. You can find the dress here
if you are interested. Oh, and it is on sale right now for $24.97 and
they are giving 30% off online purchases right now. What more could you ask for?
See what I mean by all different body types? I amuse myself.
Anyway...date night was to celebrate July 3rd which is...drumroll....a month until Finnley's due date! Super exciting!
Just a quick look at the jewels. The Finnley necklace was a gift from my mom and will be passed down to Finnley when she is older. The statement necklace was an awesome find at a local fair. I fell in love and when I found out it was only 20 bucks, I snagged it so fast I think I scared the sales lady.
I hope everyone enjoys their July 4th!
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!
This is how I describe how not tan I am, it is not describing my shorts. I am still trying to buy and wear mostly regular (not maternity) clothes. Minus bottoms, because that would be super uncomfortable. So, I thought I would post a long overdue outfit post.
Lightweight sweater (target), white linen shorts (old navy maternity), sandals (steve madden), necklace (forever21), and clutch (from Groopdealz).
This sweater is from the juniors department, and I love the dramatic high-low hemline. I just purchased a bigger size so it did not become a crop top in the front with my belly.
If you are looking for comfortable maternity shorts, these ones are definite winners.
And who could pass up a sparkly gold clutch? Not me. Groopdealz wins again.
Here is one more photo just to show the hemline of the sweater. I love this outfit, and I was really comfortable. It is a winner!
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!
If any of you are Real Housewives of New York Fans you might have noticed the new girl Carole's awesome outfit choices. She is apparently very "downtown" and I am I love with her style. On my must have list for fall: motorcycle gloves. Crazy. I know. But it's happening.
These elbow length gloves I happened to run across while looking for the motorcycle gloves and I am kind of in love with them too. Think of all the layering options for fall and winter! Plus, leather is still really popular right now.
