Sale Alert :: Club Monaco

JEANS:: Frame // TOP:: Ann Taylor (c/o) // SHOES:: Chloe // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban // JACKET:: Club Monaco (old - but love this trench!)

One of our favorite places to shop is Club Monaco and for a few reasons! First off the store is hands down one of the most beautiful store I have been in . I want my future house to resemble the inside of a Club Monaco store! Fresh flowers everywhere, clean neutral colors, its just stunning! Second, all of the pieces are extremely well made and are timeless.

The cashmere shop (which I'm currently wearing)  Third, they have really good sales! Today's sale is their "mid season" sale which features up top 60% off - no code required at checkout! There are a ton of pieces I am eyeing like this floral dress and this is one of my all time favorite cover-ups! Let's hope it warms up out there so we can actually wear these Spring pieces!

SEA & Pregnancy Update

 TOP:: SEA // JEANS:: AG // JACKET:: Club Monaco (old-similar in white) // BOOTIES:: Frye // EARRINGS:: Shop Lulou // BAG:: Chanel 

Happy Wednesday everyone! We had a different post planned for today but had some minor technical difficulties so decided to post this one instead. I thought I'd start by giving a quick pregnancy update! I'm currently 14 weeks but I'm looking more like five months pregnant- not kidding. If I had a nickel for every time a family member or friend asked if I was sure there was only one baby in there I'd be $$$. I honestly wasn't "ready" to share my pregnancy so soon but I could not hide my bump any longer. 

The first trimester wasn't too terrible in terms of morning sickness- I definitely had periods of nausea (mostly from weeks 6-10) and total food aversion- like not one thing sounded appetizing to me but compared to how some of my friends have felt, I think I got pretty lucky. I've pretty much been exhausted and by 2pm almost on the dot I feel like I could go down for a nap. However, I have three very busy kids and don't have much down time to relax. Honestly though- I blame most of my exhaustion on my kids who love torturing me by taking turns waking up at night...

In terms of gender...Kaitlin and I BOTH know what we are having and have a fun post to share with you all next week. There is some serious baby fever going on right now- so many close friends and family members are expecting. My younger sister and Kaitlin are due on the same day AND my sister in law and I are due a few days apart. Can't wait for all these babies!

On to SEA- I picked out this SEA top at Fred in Westport (they also have a location in Old Greenwich) and seriously if you are local you need to stop by. Their boutique is insanely gorgeous and their clothing and accessories selection is perfect. You will not leave empty handed :) I feel like I can always count on SEA to create beautiful and timeless pieces that I can wear year after year. I love this little white dress for summer and think it would be great with and without a baby bump. I also love this top but definitely will not be fitting into it this year! I've linked up some favorite pieces by SEA below!

Pop Of Color

TOP:: Ann Taylor (c/o) // JEANS:: Frame (hands down my favorite pair of maternity jeans) // BOOTS:: Rag & Bone (also love these) // SUNNIES:: Illesteva

So we had the tiniest sneak peak of Spring this past weekend and then the next day it was back to being cold and rainy. And I mean really cold! I desperately want to ditch my puffer and it doesn't seem like I will be this week. But with the warmer temps we experienced on Saturday it got me craving color!

This red top (c/o) Ann Taylor is perfect for pre, during (for the time being!) and post bump! I've already worn it several times and plan on continuing my spree until it no longer fits - hoping that day will not come soon! If anyone is in the market for maternity jeans I swear by these Frame ones. I have the side panel J Brand's which are my second favorite but for full belly coverage hands down Frame! A Pea in the Pod is always having promos (right now 30% off!) so make sure to check their site regularly!

I created a boutique below with some colorful pieces for Spring and Summer which seems really far off but it will be August before I know it eek!! And with a bold color keep the accessories to a minimum. I love these earrings with a bright top because they are small and let the top speak for itself!

Ann Taylor 50% off

TOP:: Ann Taylor (c/o) // JEANS:: AG // SHOES:: Ann Taylor (c/o) // BAG:: Chanel // SUNNIES:: Le Specs

Today was a rough one (and it's only 1:30). The torrential down pours this morning signified how I was feeling today- exhausted and slightly grouchy- is it ok to admit that? We had such a nice weekend away in Palm Beach celebrating my cousin's wedding. We don't go away without the kids often ever really and it was nice to spend some quality time with my husband and all of my siblings and parents. As much as I loved getting away for a bit, I always always have issues sleeping any place other than my bed. I tossed and turned each night and instead of coming back feeling rested and ready to go, I'm back feeling more tired than ever. It also didn't help that my kids were up a bit throughout the night last night! But, I'm happy to be home and hoping I get a bit more sleep tonight. 

A little pick me up for anyone else who is having a rough start to the week:: Ann Taylor is currently having a 50% off everything sale. Time to pick up some spring favorites like my chambray shirt above and my tan heels that are sooo comfortable. Kaitlin and I both have this top and she'll be posting an outfit post tomorrow featuring it. There are so many perfect every day staples out there right now and we've rounded up some of our favorites below- all for 50% off!

PS:: My FAVORITE maternity jeans that I'm wearing above are currently 30% off.

Sale Alert :: Sephora

It's Friday the 13th and I am CRAZY superstitious but knock on wood - so far so good! What's really good is the Sephora Beauty Insider Event! Rouge members ( guilty) receive early access to the sale with 15% off started today through Monday. For those of you who are not beauty insiders I do believe the sale will open up after Monday! 

A few things on my favorite list from Sephora are SK-II, anything and everything Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley and my new favorite mask from Summer Friday. This "jet lag" mask is no joke! If your skin needs some moisture just lather on a thin layer of the cream let it sink in for ten minutes and just wipe off the excess OR leave the entire thing on. I just slept in mine the other night and woke up totally hydrated and dewy. The SK-II I use after I cleanse am and pm and although its quite pricey its worth it! 

I am a huge fan of Drunk Elephant products. They use clean ingredients without any harsh chemicals which I've started really caring about in the past few months. I've actually begun reading the labels! This is the serum I use for day, I love their whipped moisturizer for day or night and I am about to buy this serum for night!

Shopbop Sale

First of all- thank you all so much for your well wishes yesterday for baby #4! We are over the moon excited and can't wait to complete our family this fall.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

The SHOPBOP Event of the Season is here! Take 20% off of purchases under $500 and 25% off of purchases over $500 with code EVENT18. There are way too many good things on Shopbop right now and I had an extremely difficult time cutting my cart down. Here are a few pieces I'm loving.
If I were a bride this summer this dress would be mine! So stunningly beautiful- even for non brides!
There are so many beautiful spring and summer dresses right now. Love this smocked floral one for a casual look and love this beautiful dress- perfect for a summer wedding!
I need a good pair of wedges and always loved the Soludos ones but they sold out in my size so quickly. Luckily, I found this style and I'm obsessed with the metallic rafia. These shoes are high up on my wish list. Loooove the color!
I pretty much only wore dresses the summer I was pregnant with Charlie so I'm assuming it will be the same this time around. I'm definitely going to order this dress- it looks casual enough to wear during the day and definitely something I can dress up at night. Plus it looks roomy enough for a belly.  
I've realized all I ever wear earrings wise lately, are some form of gold hoops. As much as I love my hoops, I want to spice things up a bit with some fun earrings this spring and summer. Loving this pair in the aqua color, 
Another super cute dress- love the wrap style in the grey and blue color. I think I might try this one out as well.
