WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG

August 24th was our daughter’s official due date but she’s still apparently very comfortable and is cooking away! The past two nights, I’ve had really intense contractions that were so bad, I was convinced they were the real deal and we needed to head to the hospital. That said, since they were not happening in repetitive intervals and they were kind of all over the place, we knew the hospital wouldn’t admit us yet. 

BUMPDATE: 40 WEEKS

Hello, August 24, 2017! Phil and I have been dreaming of this day for what seems like forever because it’s our daughter’s official due date. Even though she’s not showing any new signs of coming out just yet, this still feels like such a special day and we’re so thankful to have made it here.  I’ve heard from so many other moms that first time moms usually go into labor late but I honestly can’t believe I’m still preggo!  We have our 40 week OB appointment today and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we find out some good news.

WINTER FLORALS + LEATHER

Excited to finally see the sun in Los Angeles after what seems like weeks straight of rain! It’s been such a great winter for our crazy drought but selfishly, I’ve been missing our usual beautiful California weather. Hopefully it will be a much greener spring and summer! To celebrate the 70-something degree breeze today, I wore this comfy floral dress (similar here) (here) and (here). I was initially drawn to its bright color and cute little ruffles and it’s quickly become one of my favorite pieces to throw on in a pinch.

HOW TO LAYER UP

Today was one of those days where I looked in my closet, rummaged through all of my clothes and came to the conclusion that I had absolutely nothing to wear. I don’t know about you but no matter how many clothes are in my closet at any given time, this happens to me at least a few times a week. Today, I’m sharing an easy solution to this problem that can help you to revamp the clothes you already own in just a few minutes without spending any extra moolah.
