A fall look with Preggo Leggings.

Leggings: Preggo Leggings, c/o; Bow Top: ASOS; Sweater: H&M
Booties: Nordstrom; Extensions: AB Hair, c/o; Bag: Tory Burch

I'll tell ya guys, 
the third trimester is already rearing it's head.
You know mamas,
when every single piece of clothing you put on
 feels like it's trying to revolt against you??
Yep, I'm there.
But at least that means we're nearing the end 
and this girl will be here before we know it!

Until then, these Preggo Leggings have been my hero.
They're so incredibly comfy, but still look very structured to 
pair with a dressier look. Dress them up or down!
Check out their awesome selection here.

Thanks so much for peeking in:)
Hope you have an amazing week and happy fall, guys!

Super Mom, Super Tired. Sleepwear with You Lingerie.

Pajamas: You! Lingerie, c/o

Who wants a real mom moment?
This shoot was originally supposed to feature Hugh and I both in pajamas.
Well, when we put his pajamas on he thought that meant bedtime-
a bit confusing to a two year old when it's the middle of the day.
So, he had a complete, epic meltdown.
A diaper it was, lol. Sometimes you just have to pick your battles, right?

The expression on these super cute You Lingerie pajamas could not be 
more correct after the past few days that we've had.
It has been a very in-the-trenches kind of week.
Long story short, Hugh had a double ear infection,
we ended up in the pediatrician's office both in tears.
Yep, I had a complete come apart.
That's what a week of sleep deprivation + pregnancy hormones will get you.
God bless that sweet doctor, she was an angel.
We're all on the mend now though and doing much better, thank goodness!
So yes-super mom, super tired....pretty accurate;)

Before you guys go...
Mamas, be sure to check out You Lingerie if you're in 
need of nursing intimates, tanks or sleepwear.
Their selection is incredible and my pjs are going 
to come in very handy once this little girl arrives!
I have the hardest time finding comfortable nursing wear
and their pieces are excellent.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!

Nursing wear with Bravado Designs

Nursing Cami: Bravado Designs, c/o; Duster: ASOS; Leggings: ASOS
Shoes: Nordstrom; Hat: ASOS; Bag: Fawn Designs, c/o

It really hit me this week that we have SO much to do before this baby girl gets here.
Jonathan and I started going through old baby stuff this week when I ran across
my nursing journal with Hugh. I had honestly forgotten how in the trenches it is
with a nursing newborn. It's so special and I wouldn't trade it for anything,
but man, it can be super tough. Time to start getting my game face on!

As I'm prepping for her arrival, I wanted to share with you guys some
amazing nursing wear from Bravado Designs that I'll be using the next few months. 
Above I'm wearing their Body Silk Seamless Nursing Cami's.
I lived in nursing camisoles the first three months. If we were out and about,
I'd just through on a little sweater, wrap, etc.

I really love this one by Bravado because it's comfortable and 
the built in bra gives you amazing support. You don't feel like you're about to pop out.
It's part of their new Seamless Collection that provides over-the-top smooth, seamless comfort.
I also have their Body Silk Seamless Bra and their Yoga Bra for exercising.
 These pieces will be so helpful once I'm back to the nursing grind.

Thanks for stopping by, guys.
Have a wonderful weekend!

All c/o Tommy Bahama

I don't know about you guys,
but I can have the most difficult time finding 
quality denim that makes me feel and look great.
The right wash, length and cut...
something that should be so simple can get quite complicated.

I was really excited when I came across Tommy Bahama's Denim collection
because they've already done all of the hard work for you.
Great, basic cuts of denim in flattering washes that will make you feel your best.

Today I went with the Tema Skinny Jeans in the Dark Ocean Wash.
I love them! You can't go wrong with a classic skinny in a dark wash.
It hits mid-rise and comes true to size with a slender fit hip to ankle. 

Right now is the perfect time to add a new pair of jeans to your Fall
closet because Tommy Bahama is currently offering buy 1 get 1 50% off.

Fall shoes for the fam.

Me- Dress: SheIn, c/o; Flats: Payless, c/o; Backpack+Diaperbag: Fawn Design {sold out but restocking soon!}, c/o
Hugh- Shirt: Old Navy, Denim: Target, Shoes: Payless, c/o

Happy Friday!
I hope everyone has had a good ease back into the school flow.
Hugh started his first day of mother's morning out on Monday.
He was so exhausted when I picked him up I had to carry him to the car.
Definitely not typical Hugh behavior, but he had a great day!

As I told you guys before,
it can be so difficult finding good shoes for him that are durable but also good looking.
These that we snagged from Payless have been perfect because he can wear 
them to school, church, wherever!
I also picked up these flats for myself that are so adorable.
 Not to mention, flats are definitely a plus during my pregnancy!
We will definitely be keeping these on rotation through the Fall season.

Hope everyone has a restful and enjoyable weekend.
Thanks so much for reading!

Lash Extensions with Carolina Eye Candy

I have been debating taking the plunge into eyelash extensions for the past year.
There were many questions I had ranging from comfort, to maintenance,
to most importantly-whether or not extensions would harm my natural lashes.
After much research I discovered that Carolina Eye Candy was the most 
reputable and professional eyelash and beauty salon in South Carolina.

I was immediately impressed as soon as my appointment began.
My stylist (and CEC owner), Elizabeth took time to carefully assess
the quality, length, and curve of my natural lashes in order to determine
which set of lash extensions would be best. 
{You can view a full list of their lash extension offerings here!}
For me, she decided that the Volume Lashes would be best because 
my natural lashes were already fairly full and lengthy.
I was so happy with the Volume Lashes, which are thicker and fuller 
compared to other classic semi-permanent lashes. 
 Dimensions of these lashes range from 2D-6D (Dimensions)-I received 3D.
The number stands for the amount of extensions applied to each natural lash.
If you're concerned as to whether they will appear artificial,
don't fret because lash extensions come in varying curls, lengths, and diameters-
you get what makes you feel your best!
If you have any further questions regarding Volume Lashes,
 find everything else you need to know here.

 To elaborate on my experience with my new extensions,
I've loved them! I'm seriously wishing I had done this sooner.
The comfort is great, cannot even tell I have them.
Best part. It is such a time saver!
It has literally cut my makeup routine in half.
During the week when I wear little, if any makeup,
I still have a put together look.
When I do wear full makeup I only have to apply shadow and a minimal amount of eyeliner.
As far as upkeep, you only need to come back in around every 4 weeks for a fill-in.
Since I had so many questions walking into this process,
I put together a little q&a to answer the most common questions:

What are semi-permanent lash extensions?
Semi-permanent eyelash extensions contain single strands of synthetic eyelashes that are curved to replicate a natural eyelash. They are offered in various lengths, thicknesses, curvatures and colors.

Are lash extensions safe?
Yes. The procedure is pain-free and will not harm your eyelids or natural lashes. Extensions are never applied directly to your eyelids.

How are they applied?
You recline comfortably with your eyes closed. The Stylist applies eyelash extensions to your individual natural eyelashes, one at a time, using a medical grade adhesive.

How do I prepare for my procedure?
Do not wear any mascara or curl your lashes. Eyelids and lashes must be completely clean and dry.
 Also remove contact lenses.

How long do extensions last?
When properly maintained, Individual Eyelash extensions can last indefinitely with touch ups done every two to four weeks.

Can I apply mascara to eyelash extensions?
One of the biggest advantages is that you don't need mascara. If you do want mascara, be sure to ask your CEC Stylist about mascaras specially formulated to be compatible with eyelash extensions. Never use water proof or oil based mascara!

If you are in the South Carolina area I strongly recommend you stop by Carolina Eye Candy
and let Elizabeth and her stylists suit you up with a fabulous set of lashes.
They have three locations located in Summerville, Charleston and Columbia
and also offer services in spray tanning, waxing and threading.

Shoot me an email or leave me a comment if you have any other questions!
Thanks for reading and have a great day, guys:)

Layered neutrals.

Wrap: Sole Society, c/o; Romper: ASOS; Hat: ASOS; Sandals: Payless, c/o

As my bump grows and my figure is changing,
I'm leaning more and more towards neutrals.
I was thrilled to receive this wrap!
Its lightweight layering will be perfect as the weather begins to cool.
I also completely adore these precious sandals from Payless.
A great transitional shoe for this time of the year!
I've been so pleased with their awesome shoe selection this fall.
So many stylish and affordable options.

On the baby front,
I'm officially 25 weeks today.
Had a checkup this morning and everything looks great,
right on track with this baby girl.
Still wrapping my head around the fact that I'll be
a mom of two in a few short months.
Crazy, y'all!

Have a great Wednesday!
