Who What Wear Collection: Target

whatwhatwear whowhatwearfallcollectiontarget whowhatwearfallcollectiontarget

Today I am sharing one of my favorite blouses from the Who What Wear Fall collection at Target. I was looking for a great statement blouse to add to my wardrobe and this blouse caught me eye the instant I walked into Target. I love chic pieces at affordable prices (who doesn’t?). One of my favorite looks this summer was the white and blue striped shirt trend, and I love how this blouse continues that trend but transitions perfectly into fall. The ruffles are prefect, sometimes you can find items that have too much ruffle but this one was perfect. I am seeing a lot of ruffles for Fall, so this piece would be perfect to add to your wardrobe.

I paired the blouse with denim and some black heels I purchased from DSW warehouse last year. This is a perfect casual Friday look at the office, drinks with girlfriends or date night look. I also did this shoot in Time Square and it was so much fun to be with such a great crowd. I usually do my shoots in simple places (basic walls, alleys, etc…) and I loved wearing this outfit in such a lively place because this top is so chic!

What do you think of the Who What Wear Fall Collection? Are you planning on wearing ruffles this Fall?

My Maternity Style

Dress: Target under $10! / Jacket: White House Black Market similar here and here / Booties: Jessica Simpson old but similar here

I can’t believe we will be welcoming our baby girl in a short few weeks. I am in complete nesting mode and our crib arrived this morning, it is starting to feel so real. One thing that has been challenging as of late has been dressing this bump and I am talking today all about maternity style. Once you get to the end, it is pretty hard to hide the bump and you just have to embrace it. The green dress I am wearing in the photos above is from Target and it is so soft and comfy. It is non maternity but since it is a stretchy sweater dress it works over a bump and I am wearing a large for sizing the belly. My black coat is an oldie but a goodie from White House Black Market. One thing that I have been doing lately is wearing a lot of cardigans, long sweaters, and coats to hide the overall growing size of the bump towards the end. There is a growing baby in there and there is no hiding it :).

Below are some tips on my maternity style throughout the pregnancy:

In the first trimester I wasn’t showing so it was easy to continue wearing my every day style and clothing. Although I felt really sick this pregnancy in the first trimester, all I wanted to do was lay in bed, but I didn’t start wearing maternity jeans until the second trimester.

The second trimester I was able to get away with maternity jeans and size medium tops or dresses that were just  regular women’s clothing. I don’t really go full force into maternity style until the third trimester when everything is growing so fast and you are getting really big – the baby grows the most in the final trimester.

The third trimester is the hardest to keep your style as you start to have limited choices. I am consistently wearing maternity jeans and clothing, although I do try my hardest to get away with regular women’s clothing in a size large if I can. This is when I am really focusing on my maternity style and what that means. Sometimes regular women’s clothing “fits” but the way it “fits” just isn’t right and you are better off with maternity clothing and should really think how to stay true to your style. In this stage I wear the long cardigans, oversized sweaters, statement coats, etc… All black is your best friend especially if you can add statement jewelry or shoes, that is a great way to look slim but stylish. If it is the summer then maxi dresses are really the way to go. I wore so many dresses with Lucas and I was able to keep my  style.

Favorite maternity sites:

www.asos.com/maternity – I got my 30th Birthday dress from here and they have so many cute trendier maternity styles

Halloween Weekend

Halloween 2016 Halloween 2016 Halloween 2016 Halloween 2016 Halloween 2016

Nicolette: Sweater- H&M / Jeans – Gap / Boots – Old similar here / Tote: H&M
Lucas: Costume – Amazon / Shirt – Target

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween weekend. We did some trick or treating this year and Lucas was a train conductor and I was a witch. Usually I love doing big costumes and going all out for Halloween, but it felt so good to just relax this year and not go to big. But next year, I am already thinking of our costumes and I would really love to do something big. I use to spend my Halloween’s in the city and since we moved to the suburbs we hardly do that anymore. I want to next year at least do the Halloween parade in NYC and maybe some serious trick or treating for Lucas.

I wore this new H&M sweater as my “black” for being a witch, it is so comfy. I bought it as a random pick up, I didn’t even try it on in store and I have been wearing it non stop. It is definitely a must purchase. I also decided to buy this new tote from H&M. I have been looking for a larger black tote, something not too costly, but easy to throw everything when trying to get out the door. Camera, bottle of water, some food and cars for Lucas. I wanted it to be tote style so I can just open and grab what I need, I don’t know if any other Mama’s have a demanding 2 year old, but when Lucas gets hangry, watch out!

I hope everyone’s week is going great. We are in full force fall here and I really can’t wait until all things Christmas!

Jacket:  Target / Jeans: Banana Republic / Sunglasses: Ray Ban

Yesterday I spoke about my fashion shoot at the Brooklyn Bridge, today I am bringing you to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Williamsburg has a special place in my heart because it is the part of Brooklyn I grew up in, went to school and got married in. And those views!!!

I just got this new target jacket on clearance, it is perfect for transitioning into spring. I love the print, it is perfect for Williamsburg and the hipster scene that is there. It is so fun and you can wear it with a lot of different styles. I am wearing it with denim jeans but I can also see it worn with white jeans to bring in that spring look. I also love that this jacket ties very easily and I can throw it on when it starts to get chilly. There are a ton of great Target finds, and shopping at Target is becoming one of my favorite places to shop for clothes. Especially deals and steals. Where is your favorite place to shop for budget friendly pieces?

Handbag: Forever21 / Earrings: Target / Jacket: Forever21  / Jeans: Banana Republic / Flats: Steve Madden

Today we are talking about accessories!! I am teaming up with my friends Walking in Memphis in High Heels and The Fashion Canvas to share our favorite accessories.

If you came over from their sites, welcome!! Here I talk all about fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle.

Today, I am sharing my new favorite handbag. I saw a bag similar to this, specifically the Celine version, but found this budget friendly version at Forever21. The hardware is sturdy and secure and the bag, although small and fashionable, can surprisingly hold a lot. I have a 17 months old baby boy, and I am constantly throwing random baby stuff in my bags, so if I can run around with a stylish bag like this but still fit everything and more, than that is a win! I also love I can wear it as a crossbody or I can carry it as a tiny satchel.

I am also in love with these ear jackets. I saw it on another blogger, and found these randomly at Target when I was shopping for our Disney World trip. They have been on repeat wear over the last week.

What is your favorite accessory? Leave a comment below or feel free to link up below and share your take on a favorite accessory. The linkup runs for one week.

Thanks loves for stopping by!!

Hi Guys! I have been wanting to do a nursery tour for awhile, and since this past weekend it was literally 3 degrees in NYC, I thought perfect time to do indoor pictures.

I love Lucas’s nursery because it is the only completely “done” room in the house in regards to furniture, pictures, etc… One thing I am thinking of adding is more shelves or a mini book case because we love reading to Lucas and he loves to bring us books. Who knew he would know his favorite books at 17 months old? He is too adorable.

When we were planning his nursery I went for a “animals in the sky” feel. It was a montage of a ton of nursery’s I loved online, my inspiration came from Restoration Hardware Kids, Pottery Barn Kids & then different blogger moms. I took a bit of what I liked in each and then combined into my own. Hope you guys enjoy, and below is the list of products.

Printed Navy Dress

Dress: Target / Booties: Jessica Simpson   / Stockings: Macys

Hi Guys! Yesterday, I posted about this teal coat that I love and so many cute similar styles. Well the dress I wore underneath the coat, is such a good find. I ordered it online from Target, it was a bit big so I would order a size down. It is really comfortable & super cute. I wanted to look really cute for our date night in Montauk, but wanted to be comfortable at the same time which this dress allowed. I loved the open shoulder look and if I had more time to get ready before our date night I would have done a really cute hairstyle up so you can really see the open shoulders and make that feature pop. By the way, I am not a big stockings girl but if it is cold and I have to wear them I ONLY wear the ones I linked to. I love them, they make the legs look amazing and are so soft. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday.
