Fall pieces in L.A have to be light and versatile. Its almost always sunny, so even if its cold out, you can warm up with just cute sweater or long sleeve dress and boots. We've had a heat wave this fall that only seems to go away temporarily so I'm only just now pulling out my cooler weather clothes. Above are some of my top picks right now online.

The maxi dress is my go to outfit all summer. Its so easy to throw on and looks so put together. And for me, I can get away with not having to wear maternity clothes as long as I stick to a loose fit, like the ones pictured above. The best part is I can wear them through most of the pregnancy. Number 4 is perfect for a night out or dinner party and although number 6 is meant to be a beach cover up, I'll probably throw it on over a long white slip and wear it everywhere!
A baby bump definitely does change the look and fit of these dresses, but since they are so loose and breezy, no one seems to notice that I'm not wearing maternity wear. Granted I'm 6 months along, and maybe by the 9th month I'll be pulling out full on tents to cover my growing belly, but it worked for me last pregnancy and I never bought maternity clothes. Other than a nice pair of maternity jeans and lots of inexpensive leggings in a larger size (or 2) I'm convinced that maternity clothing is not completely necessary. The best part of online shopping is if it doesn't work, you just send it back at no cost to you! Go to my numbered links for free shipping and free returns:)

Taking pictures has not been on my list of priorities lately. Life has been hectic and I'm just trying to keep my head above water. Just trying to get myself dressed in the morning can be a challenge, not only because its getting more and more difficult to find something to wear, but also because I feel like a truck ran over me most days.
I'm 20 weeks, and this time period last pregnancy, I was feeling great. But sadly, not all pregnancies are the same and now my life is filled with much more draining activities (staying up all night with a toddler for one). Oh and getting a disgustingly horrific stomach bug has been another awesome thing that occurred this pregnancy, that I was lucky to miss out on last time. But, here it comes, the much expected, possibly even overused cliche, but so true: Its all worth it in the end. (I mean, look at this guy, he makes my heart melt and I smile so much around him it hurts.)
So yes, the joy or lack thereof of pregnancy is a small price to pay, but wouldn't it be super cool if the guys got to take a crack at it?!!

Lots of awesome spring sales right now. I'm particularly in to Nordstrom's, J Crew's and Revolve's nicely discounted pieces. I just bought these denim sunglasses for 30% off! Have you seen them around yet? Denim sunglasses? Why hasnt anyone thought of that before?! I'm crazy for them! Anyway, check out the sales before they go away, I showcased my favorite pieces but there are tons more great items on sale now:)

Did I mention I'm having another boy?! I probably didnt and thats because I've been so busy (and so exhausted as well). But yes, another little tiny man running around the house causing a ruckus. I've always loved little boys. Something about these little people who will one day be big, strong men, who are so sweet and love their mama sooooo much, just makes me smile.
But, I've decided this means I need to up my game: I need to become a better cook, because even grown boys love to come home for moms cooking (this will truly be me making magic happen)! I need to brush up on my sports knowledge...Beaux is 3 and he already started T-ball games. And I need to get thicker skin, because these little rascals are gonna get bumps and bruises a million times along the way and this mama wants to be ready for it!
In the spirit of sports and little boys, I based this look above off a combination of feminine and tomboy. I love the two paired together and I can see this being a part of my weekend wardrobe for sure!

After what, for many of us, was a beautiful weekend, I figured we could use a little bit of monday inspiration. (Plus I'm feeling a little like my old pre-pregnant self, and I'm ready to be motivated). I've got some fun links to be shared that inspire and get us ready for a lovely Spring:
1. 10 Tips to Organize your Vanity - couldn't have come at a better time, its spring and I need to organize!
2. Coconut Oil Chocolate Bark - a healthy less guilty treat, ts actually good for you! Coconut oil is a healthy fat that is good for your skin, stress levels, cholesterol levels and more.
3. La Petite Bloom Workshop - this workshop is one I hope to attend someday. It includes learning calligraphy, arranging flowers and meeting people who enjoy the little things in life that make life sweet.
4. 5 Reasons To Detox from your Phone - spring cleaning can apply to your lifestyle too, a phone detox would do wonders for myself and many of those around me:)
5. When to Toss your Make-Up - I probably hang on to mine a little too long, its not healthy, could cause infection, and we all need an excuse to buy new fun make-up anyway:)
