Old Navy Fall Try on

This post contains affiliate links meaning I make a small commission.

I recently popped into Old Navy to do a little fall try on session for you all.  They had some great basics for layering for this season.

Here are some of my favorites from my Old Navy fall try on.

You can shop the links by clicking the thumbnails below.

Outfit 1

First up, I tried a pair of their wide leg jeans. I like that these are a high waist to tuck in that mom pooch. I would definitely wear these with a heeled boot or wedges to give some height.

Outfit 2

I paired my basic jeans and top with this utility jacket. I love that it has a cinched waist for a more fitted look.

Outfit 3

This corduroy skirt would be super cute with some brown tights or leggings underneath and a chunky scarf as the weather gets chillier.

Outfit 4

So you all know my love for pantsuits runs deep and so obviously this one had to come home with me. It was on sale leftover from the summer for $16 in store. I paired it with a burnt orange cardigan for a fall look. I think it would look super cute with a white jacket or cardigan for spring/summer as well.

(As I sit here putting this together I realize I may be obsessed with burnt orange)

Outfit 5

I fell in love with these distressed boyfriend jeans! I loved them so much, I went home and bought them online for $24.99. (They came to $45 in store).

Paired with a graphic tee and cardigan it’s a cute casual look.

The Ultimate Maternity Wardrobe Capsule – that you can wear even when you’re not pregnant

The Ultimate Maternity Wardrobe Capsule
This post contains affiliate links meaning I make a small commission

Every pregnancy is different and this pregnancy I’ve been having so much fun dressing my bump in different styles, creating the ultimate maternity wardrobe capsule. With my first pregnancy, I lived in maternity jeans, leggings and maternity tops. Towards the end I felt like a frumpy puff ball. And I also spent alot of money on said maternity wear that hasn’t gotten much use since.

This pregnancy, I’ve been determined to look cute, feel great and not to spend alot of money on maternity clothes. Im sharing how I created the Ultimate Maternity Wardrobe Capsule –  from dresses, to jumpsuits to overalls, all which can be worn even when you’re not pregnant.

To shop, click the thumbnails below the photo.

Dresses

I absolutely love dresses for pregnancy. Not only are they comfortable, but they make me feel super feminine. Here are some of my faves.

I love this button down striped dress from my Old Navy Spring Try-on. (If you didn’t see my spring try-on click here). The material is very breathable, and the buttons and gathered waist give it a more tailored look.

I love a classic black maxi dress. This one is belted at the waist to highlight your bump (or accentuate your waistline when you’re not pregnant). Pair with a jean jacket in the cooler months.

This dress from The Nesting Olive is seriously gold. Not only is it super soft, but it’s great for no matter what season of life you are in – pregnant, postpartum, nursing, or just to wear as a house dress or out running errands. The flowiness (is that a word?) makes it a great option for postpartum c-section mamas and the buttons make it nursing friendly.

Jumpsuits

I have been on such a jumpsuit kick lately! Seriously they are such a great way to dress up, yet be comfortable and wear flats. I love this one from Target. I bought it in black as well. It has a cute little tie at the back of the neck and pockets!

jumpsuit

I bought this striped linen one from Old Navy a few years ago. I like it paired with a white t shirt underneath. I’m linking some that are similar.

Cardigans/Kimonos

Cardigans are a staple in my closet. I live in tanks and cardigans all year round. Sometimes with jeans, sometimes with leggings. It’s my favorite casual go-to.

cardigan

Like cardigans, kimonos are a simple way to instantly look put together together. I love them for the warmer spring/summer months too paired with jeans, shorts or a dress. This photo is from when I was about 30 weeks with Maxwell. Below I’ve linked some of my favorite kimonos.

Chambray Button Down

I bought this one from Target last year. I have been able to wear it well into my pregnancy, and as my belly has grown I just leave it unbuttoned. Plus the buttons make it nursing friendly when you’re postpartum as well. My favorite way to wear it is with black leggings, sneaks and baseball cap for when you’re on the go. Speaking of leggings, my favorite pair is $10 from Target (I’ve linked them in the thumbnail below). No need to spend more money on maternity leggings.

Joggers

Joggers are seriously a mom’s best friend. It’s a way to look cool and casual while also chasing your crazy kids. Plus there are so many ways you can style them. The elastic waistband sits below your belly making it comfortable during pregnancy.

Overalls

Ok so this is the only item on my list that is maternity. These overalls are from Motherhood Maternity. I seriously love how stretchy they are. And they are so cute!

Bras/Underwear

Finding underwear and bras that are comfortable during pregnancy can be a challenge. I recently discovered Target’s new line of intimates, Auden. Auden prides itself on being size inclusive offering XS-4XL and from 32A-46G for bras.

Old Navy Spring Try-On

This post contains affiliate links

Who’s ready for an Old Navy Spring Try-On? Yesterday I dropped dude man off at daycare, grabbed a coffee and I hit up Old Navy for their Spring Sale. All of their dresses, tops and jeans were 40% off!!! I literally wanted everything in the store.

Below I’m sharing everything I snagged at the Old Navy Spring Sale. All of these items are non-maternity but definitely bump-friendly.

You can shop too by clicking on the thumbnail pics below my picture.

Dresses

I love dresses in the spring and summer, it’s my go-to style especially being pregnant.

Friday Favorites – mules, easy dinner ideas and more decor!

This post contains affiliate links

Happy Friday friends!  This past weekend my baby turned 2 and we’ve been celebrating all week long! I also made a trip to Hobby Lobby and scored some really cute decor. First, let me take a step back. My sister was on the hunt for some decor for her bedroom so I tagged along with all intentions of window shopping and checking out their Christmas stuff. But I found some things I just couldn’t pass up.  I ended up restyling my built ins in the living room (I’ll share that in another post soon), and added some cute farmhouse decor to my kitchen which I’m sharing with you all today.

It’s been awhile since I did a “Friday Favorites” post so I thought I’d share some of the things I’m loving this week.

Mules-

mules shoes

I have never been a shoe fanatic. My super wide, flat 6 1/2s makes me dread shoe shopping. Until I discovered mules that is. They make you look instantly chic and are super comfy. And I think they’re the perfect shoe for the gal on the go or busy moms. Here are some of my favorite pairs (click images to bring you to the site!)

Quick, easy dinners from Trader Joe’s –

Trader Joes frozen meals

So about once a week after I drop off the dude at school I like to hit up TJ’s. I don’t do all of my grocery shopping there but I love them for their frozen meals. They’re great for after working a 12 hour shift or sometimes if I just don’t feel like making dinner but I want to make a wholesome meal.  Our favorites are the mandarin chicken which I serve over some broccoli and brown rice. Or you can serve it with their frozen vegetable rice but sometimes I just eat that as is, it’s so good. And we also love their cheesy spaghetti squash casserole, and butternut squash mac and cheese!

Netflix documentary – The Staircase

Ok so if you don’t know by now, I love true crime documentaries.  I got hooked when I was home on maternity leave and that was all that was on TV.  I just started The Staircase on Netflix. It’s about a woman who was found at the bottom of the staircase in her house and it’s a matter of did her husband kill her or was it an accident? So good. My other favorite for anyone that has HBO is The Jinx. I watched that one in one day.

 

Blanket Scarves – 

bean boots

I snagged this one this week. It’s so big and I love to wear it as a scarf or shawl.  Plus I think this flannel print is perfect for the fall and winter months.

Decorative trays – 

farmhouse decor

I was looking to add a touch of farmhouse to my kitchen. I found this cute Thyme sign at Hobby Lobby. To give it a little height I picked up this tray, added a boxwood for some greenery, and then added some other stuff I had around the house. I love the way that a tray can pull together some little knick knacks and make it look a little more elegant. Plus you can change out some of the little elements for different seasons.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I would love to know some things you’re crushing on this week.
