CONFESSIONS OF AN ANXIOUS PREGO MOM

Los Angeles style blogger, RELIsh By Arielle, wears a red maxi dress with a bow in front from Zara

Happy Thursday! As I shared in my recent baby bump debut post, it’s been such a busy season over in the Galanty household! In case you missed it, I’m currently pregnant with baby #2 and I’m due in October! Today’s post features photos  taken the week before Phil and I found out we were pregnant. I’m excited to finally share them! It’s so crazy to think that our first baby is going to be a big sister so soon! With such big changes coming, in full disclosure, my anxiety levels have been through the roof recently. In the interest of being fully transparent for any other mamas who may be in a similar boat, I’m sharing my latest pregnancy confessions today. After you take a read, please leave a comment below to let me know if you’ve experienced any of these anxieties too! I’d love to know!

Above, I’ve put together some of my favorite items I’m loving right now. I am loving the headband, belt and necklace on my list, because they are great statement pieces for the holiday season. I’m all about the sparkle right now, as long as it’s not too much. It’s important to wear these pieces with understated garments to they really pop.

The red dress above from Anthroplogie really caught my eye. I love that it’s such a glamorous maxi dress in a classic holiday color. I think the detailing is really girly and pretty and the frock is perfect for holiday parties.

As for the Vita Fede bracelet above, this is one designer I’ve become extremely excited about over the past few months. Each piece of jewelry from this collection, including the bracelets, are classy and understated with a bit of edge. For this reason, they are the types of bracelets you can wear with anything and they look great in layers.

The A-line mini skirt above has a really great cut to it. I tried it on a few weeks back and wish I had bought it because I’m still thinking about how great of an addition it would be to my wardrobe. I’ll keep it in mind for my next trip to Anthropologie for sure.

Last but not least, the pullover white sweater looks really comfy and cozy and even though I live in Los Angeles where it barely gets below 50 degrees in the winter, I am still a New Yorker at heart and I love to dress for the different seasons. This is a great piece that can be quite versatile–worn with leggings, skinny jeans, even a skirt. I love that you can dress it up with statement necklaces or layer it under your favorite leather jacket or blazer.
