Date Night

 photo IMG_6244_zps9389b8af.jpg

Since the fella’s parents were in town last week, we took full advantage and enjoyed a legitimate date night out. Complete with a movie, appetizers at half price, his and hers sake bombs, and a late night drive, the boy and I relished in the fact that we were spending quality time sans baby. It was rather nice to enjoy a night out on the town as husband and wife versus our typical roles as mommy and daddy, but it was also surreal. We might have called to check-in once or twice;)

With no curfew, no diaper bag, and no baby on board, I took advantage of the fact that I could wear anything for the night out. I went for a fun yet structured look that showed a lot of leg, and even sported an intricate braided up-do! Because I’m used to lugging around a massive tote bag I opted for the basics and left the handbag at home. My ID and lipstick fit perfectly in my shorts pockets without looking bulky and my phone was handed to the boy for safe keeping. All in all, I really loved my look (and so did Kev) and will be dreaming of our next date night. I wonder when we’ll get to enjoy another one.

Easter Sunday

 photo IMG_6263_zps278f3676.jpg

I’ve gone corporate world appropriate and baby bump friendly, so this time when the sweet people of eShakti contacted me to customize and review one of their beautiful pieces I couldn’t say no to this vintage inspired number. It even has pockets! There’s just so much to love! I customized it specifically for me - from the sizing, to the fit, to small details like whether or not I wanted sleeves - eShakti gave me options to create a piece made to fit my body and style!

When I saw this dress I instantly saw myself frolicking through a field of dandelions or at the park with Remy enjoying the sunshine of a mild spring day! It was a no brainer to wear in on Easter Sunday, but I’m perplexed on how I’ll wear it moving forward. Challenge accepted!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter!

Non-Maternity Maternity Style

photo IMG_6233_zps88427c3e.jpg

Is it weird that this is a maternity dress? I just really wanted to wear it and decided that nothing was really stopping me from wearing it to church last Sunday. It’s a lot baggier than this in reality, but I did the safety pin trick to improve the fit a little bit. It was definitely a Tim Gunn make it work moment. And I think it works, right? Just go with me on this one, okay? Okay! The last time I actually wore this dress was to attend the 2nd Annual Arizona Blogger Conference last year. I realized it was still hanging in my closet, not packed away with my other maternity clothes, and wanted to challenge myself to sport it without a bump. And there you have it - my non-maternity maternity style!

Doin’ MY Thang

 photo IMG_6214_zps51eff6b3.jpg

Truth Time: I’ve never felt as comfortable or as confident in my own skin as much as I do now. It seems that since having Remy, I’ve found an inner peace and self-assurance that I’ve never had before. I think mothers learn quickly, after the birth of their first child, that you just can’t please everyone. In life you can’t care what everyone thinks. Everyone will always have an opinion, whether it’s about your life, your style, or the way you parent. With this new found confidence, I’ve learned to not care (as much) and just do, wear, and parent the way that comes naturally to me. That’s what truly feels right. Because really, fuck ‘em*. Do your thang and I promise you’ll be a much happier person!

*pardon my French.
