I hope everyone had a great weekend. We explored Manhattan on Saturday and we got a mini snow storm on Sunday. We also started to get ready for Valentine’s Day this week. I got my beautiful red roses which I love because I get to appreciate them longer. We also planned our Valentine’s Day dinner menu, we always do a quiet dinner at home every year. We are having chilean sea bass and bacon wrapped scallops and non-alcoholic champagne.

Since I am due in a few short weeks we are taking it easy on the weekends and trying to finish getting ready for baby girl. I am sharing this fun Free People dress today. It is non-maternity but bump friendly. It is velvet material and so soft,the color really pops especially with an all black turtleneck. When we took these pictures we were so surprised at how amazing the color really looked. It also comes in Navy Blue and is definitely a win and is currently on sale for under $100. I can see transitioning this dress into Spring with a lace cami underneath instead of a turtleneck to cooperate with the warmer weather to come.

What are your Valentine’s Day plans? Do you prefer to wear traditional red on Valentine’s Day or something different such as black, pink or a pop of color on Valentine’s Day? Do you go out or stay in or celebrate with the girls?

Spring Suede Jacket

I am loving this spring suede jacket. I am wearing it in Olive, but it also comes in grey and tan and I am loving those colors as well.  It is on sale for under $30 from Nordstrom rack and is such a steal. It is perfect for spring when the temperature starts to warm up. I also love pairing it with a nude chiffon top, also from Nordstrom rack, I linked to a few similar as the one I bought in September is sold out.

Looking at these pictures makes me realize how much bigger baby girl is getting, a few short weeks we get to meet her and I am so excited. We are setting up the crib this weekend and the bedding has been ordered. I am just ordering the lighting for her nursery. I can’t wait! Once she is here we will do a blog post on her nursery, which  I am hoping will come out perfectly.

Oversized Sweaters

I am loving oversized sweaters lately. It is part of my current maternity style, which of course also includes duster cardigans as I mentioned in yesterday’s post. Oversized sweaters are just so cozy and are a perfect maternity piece. If you aren’t expecting is is such a great winter piece. We only have a few more short weeks until Spring arrives and I am so excited!

I am wearing a Forever21 basic grey sweater and you really can’t go wrong with grey and black. Surprisingly, I am wearing a size medium. I love that I can get away with basic clothing at a larger  size, it is really helping keep my style trendy. However, with a few more weeks to go I have been wearing more standard maternity clothing.

I am really loving all of Forever21 clothes lately. They are so affordable and are really trendy and up to date with style. There are so many spring styles I love and I can’t wait until the spring when I can wear them after baby.
