Fall trends: Slipdress

Monday, September 26, 2016

It seems that the slip dress is no longer just for the bedroom, and these ladies are showing you how to take it through to your fall wardrobe. This first look is my favourite because it's such a playful way of sneaking in that delicate detail, and not just wearing a nighty over top of your clothes!

Fall Maternity Fashion: 16 weeks

Saturday, September 24, 2016

I have always enjoyed reading other bloggers pregnancy journey's and especially seeing what they are wearing as their belly grows. Now, it's my turn, and I'm so excited to share my experiences with you as this babe continues to grow.

How far along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: Baby is the size of an avocado
Weight gain: 5lbs, since I ate my way through the first trimester nausea. I feel like I am on track, but it's a little scary gaining weight so quickly.
What am I wearing: Maternity clothes? This outfit is all non-maternity, but I did buy a few maternity pieces that I am already loving! The difference in comfort in so worth it.


How do I feel: Symptoms? Now that the first trimester symptoms such as nausea and fatigue have passed, I am feeling great! It's funny when people tell you it'll get better once the 2nd trimester comes, but during those first few months, it seems impossible to get there.
Cravings: It seems that cravings are a typical pregnancy symptom, but I have not actually had any at this point. 
Gender: Our next ultrasound is scheduled at 19 weeks, when we will get to find out the gender!
Movement: Sometime's I have thought that I've felt movement, but it's so early and I really don't know if it was or not.
Sleep: I can usually sleep well, until I have to get to go to the bathroom that is... and then I have a hard time getting comfortable again and can't fall back asleep easily. I know it's only going to get worse so I won't complain about the 9-10 hours of sleep I typically get. I'm enjoying it while I can!

Best moment of the week: Feeling like I actually look pregnant and not just like I have a food baby. I have gotten some double takes and it's quite funny because I am still in that awkward in-between stage.
What am I reading: What to Expect when You're Expecting, Common Sense Pregnancy, Hypnobirthing Book.

Outfit details:
Sweater: Joe Fresh | Tank: Kenneth Cole | Necklace: American Eagle | Leggings: H&M | Slip-ons: Old Navy

NYFW: SS'17 Favourite shows [part 2]

Thursday, September 22, 2016

Though the Oscar de la Renta show seemed a little disconnected, each look was so well thought out and stunning. It went from knit dresses, flowing chiffon, to feathers and evening gowns. Never-the-less, everything was beautiful!

Carolina Herrera had a fresh take on the black and white colour scheme, playing with suiting and business attire and transforming it into something glamourous.

There were so many interesting shapes and angles happening with the Proenza Schouler collection and I loved the way the skirts moved down the runway. One major thing that I wanted to point out in this runway show, was the diversity of models that were represented. It was so refreshing not to just see Black and White, because our world is definitely not that distinctive!

NYFW: SS '17 Favourite shows

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Here are a few of the shows I enjoyed from NYFW.

  I love the lines and beautiful use of colour in this collection by Jason Wu.

The whimsical look of the Zimmermann Spring collection reminded me of a modern Renaissance        look with the faux corsets and laced up boots.

I am dreaming of these slinky, bias cut dresses post-baby body (hopefully!) from Cushnie et Ochs

We are having a baby!

It was such a shock for my husband and I when we found out, but we are so excited!

One of the first questions people always ask is how did I find out I was pregnant?
I had been in a routine since we started trying to get pregnant, and calculating the days when I could take the next pregnancy test. I had had a busy weekend with family, and was not really thinking too much about it - since the result had been the same disappointment month after month. It was late Sunday afternoon and I was home alone, so I decided to take a pregnancy test (without any expectations what-so-ever!). I was beside myself when I saw those two pink lines appear... I didn't know what to think or how to react! I was so used to getting the same result, and tossing yet another pregnancy test in the trash, that second line empty. I sat on my bedroom floor and cried, then went back to the bathroom to check that the test was still positive, then just prayed and thanked God for this amazing miracle.

This is our 13 week ultrasound. I am now 15 weeks 2 days and we are looking foward to our next ultrasound (at 19 weeks) when we can find out the gender! I still can't believe this is really happening!
