A 36 Week Bumpdate + My Latest Go-To Accessory

Happy Friday! We’re 36 weeks today, and now we’re really almost there. We’re four weeks away and in the home stretch to meet our girl. Compared to my first pregnancy, this one has been quite a breeze. And I’m so grateful that I’ve had the energy and time and physical ability to document it here, in this space. I was hesitant at first, to get in front of the camera, to share this personal journey. But now, looking back, I’m so happy I’ll have this little diary of this phase of life for years to come.

Friday Favorites - Updated N-Sale Picks

Happy Friday!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to the public, meaning a lot of my original picks are either sold out or running way low; so I’ve updated my favorites for you here. I was able to snag two of my top picks at 12:30- this coat that is making me so excited for Fall, and this dreamy turtleneck sweater that will be oversized enough for my soon-to-be postpartum bod.

My Tattoo Diary

Roughly ten years ago, at the ripe ole age of 25, I got my first tattoo.

It hadn’t been a long time coming; I never really imagined myself getting a tattoo, I never begged my parents for one growing up. But one day, I woke up and really wanted one. Needed one, actually. So I headed to the local parlor in downtown Santa Barbara and scratched my tattoo itch.

25 Non-Maternity Dresses For Bump

You may have noticed there have been a lot of flowy dresses on the feed the past few months. I’m always a sucker for a breezy maxi; but when it comes to dressing my bump it’s pretty much all I wear.


This pregnancy, I’ve invested in a few “maternity” pieces , which I love- here and here. But I struggle with spending money on pieces that I’m unlikely to wear post-pregnancy.

20 Weeks

Twenty weeks and we’re half way there! 
It feels like it was just last week that we found out the unbelievable news; it’s going by so quickly this time, and yet there’s still so far to go. I forgot you’re basically pregnant for a year.

I didn’t have Lilies and Lambs when I was pregnant with MM, and as a result I didn’t document really any part of those nine months- in pictures or words. So there’s little in terms of physical memories of that part of our journey.

Vacation Wishlist

Next month Phil and I will be heading to Miami for a little Baby Moon. We didn’t get a chance to take one when I was pregnant with Maddie, so this time around we wanted to carve out some time just for us. I’ll be writing a whole post on this in a few weeks; but in the meantime I’ll share a few vacation goodies I’ve had my eyes on. We plan on doing a whole lot of NOTHING: breakfasts in robes, lounging by the pool, catching up on some good reads and relaxing just the two of us. I’ll be taking a carry on- possibly a first for me- so I’m planning on packing smarter and lighter for this trip.

October Picks: J Crew 40% Off Sale

You guys: J. Crew is having a sale. All. Weekend. Long

And I’m pretty much loving all their fall goodies. It’s been a while since I’ve really invested in updating my wardrobe. My lifestyle has changed so much since becoming a mom- and my idea of of feeling “dressed” has shifted along with it. But this season I’ve decided to take full advantage of the savings and spruces up my closet a bit.

Fall Wish List

Fall, is that you?

Give me a few fallen leaves and some crisp, cool nights and I’m all in. If you don’t believe me, take a glance at me feed: it’s all chunky knits and plaids and deep, burnt browns. We’ve had our first official Sunday Football gathering of the season- complete with wings and bloodies and our very first September fire. And while I’ve grown to love summer, I’m so very happy to be knee deep in autumn.
