Good Morning Friends! I’m currently sipping a cup of Joe from my dining table right now, in the dark, enjoying my new fall centerpiece: a candle in a vase surrounded by pine cones. Eric and I had fun crafting some DIY fall decorations yesterday and I love sitting in my home, staring at them, and getting ready for my favorite season. It’s still kind of dark outside…. and I love it! Does anyone else like getting up before the sun rises? I might sound like a total weirdo for saying that, but I find it so peaceful to be up before the rest of the world is up. Especially with a cup of coffee and the news or a relaxing playlist on. Or a good book on a beach vacation. I digress…
Today marks week 39 in my pregnancy and still no baby yet! I’ve never felt more impatient in my life! But it’s given me a chance to have lots of quality time with Eric as well as quality time with myself. I walked 24.5 miles last week and feel like a total boss! We also had our house cleaned on Saturday (for the first time in a very LONG time) and it feels AH-mazing. That clean house smell though…
Anyway, those are our very newsworthy updates over here, ha! I wanted to quick show you this outfit before the dress sells out because I absolutely love it and think you will too ;)
Dark green is one of my favorite colors to wear this time of year. I have hazel eyes that really pop when I wear it and I love how the color looks on my skin too. I found this dress at Loft and it’s a size small that easily fit over my bump. It’s the perfect work dress or wear-to-Church dress and is on sale! It also comes in this gorgeous blouse with beautiful bell sleeves if you’re looking for a fun top to take you from work to play. I paired it with a cozy cardigan (similar here) and my favorite mules (sold out in gray, still available in carmel!).
I had so much fun doing this photoshoot as it was my last one before baby! I had my hair and make up done by Kelsey Davies and she made me feel so glam! We used some new YSL products and I absolutely loved the YSL All Hours Foundations and beautiful Tatouge lipstick (shade: Rose Illicite). I’ve had a hard time finding lip shades that stay on for hours and this one did not disappoint! Plus the shade is so pretty.
Kelsey and I had fun listening to new tunes while she gave me a fun up-do. If you’re local to Austin, I highly recommend checking out @kelseynicolebeauty or emailing her at email@example.com to book a glam session for your Christmas card or wedding day. She rocks!
That’s all for me. I’m off to continue trying to walk this baby out- ha! Here’s to a marvelous week. Send your prayers for a healthy baby my way!
