Meet Harper Gray

She’s finally here! Harper Gray Da Silva was born on January 3rd, weighing in at 6lbs, 14oz, and 20” long. It still feels very surreal as I write this post to know our baby girl is home with us and actually physically in our arms. You guys, she’s absolutely precious in all ways and Mike and I both are so in love. We talk about how much we miss her when she’s sleeping, we can’t stop saying to each other, “she’s so beautiful”, and we can’t stop snuggling and giving her kisses. Despite the tired days, we’re doing our best to be in the moment with her to soak up all the newborn goodness.

2017 Favorite Outfits

2017 Favorite outfits

I did a similar post like this last year and you guys seemed to love it. Looking back on outfits can be interesting. There’s hits, but there’s a ton of misses, too. While going through looks from each month, you can tell fall and winter are my favorite seasons. It’s where I feel most confident and comfortable. Give me all the layers! I’m still working on how to find my style in spring and summer. Last year I really wanted to work on my summer style, and unfortunately, I’m still not happy with it. I’m giving myself a break considering my belly started growing then and I had limited options. Summer style can be hard. You don’t get to layer and if you don’t wear a ton of dresses or skirts, there’s not many options other than shorts paired with tops. You’ll have to stay tuned to see what happens this year…

2017 Year In Review

WE FOUND OUT WE WE’RE PREGNANT

As we approach the end of the year, I like to look back and do some reflecting. I especially like to look back on my previous year’s Year in Review post (you can read it it here), to see what I’ve accomplished and where I am in terms of those goals. Things are a little different this year as we found out we were pregnant early on, which ultimately changed the course of the year. Of the 6 goals I set for 2017, I accomplished 3-4, so, not too bad. We didn’t get to travel as much or explore our city, but I did find myself back at the gym 2 times per week, I was able to find a much better work/life balance, and the business grew by at least 50% (woohoo).

Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2017

Happy Friday! I still can’t believe Christmas is on Monday. It’s been a weird December. Mike and I keep saying out loud, “it doesn’t feel like Christmas.” I think with so much going on, it’s hard to really get into the holiday spirit. Between finishing up work projects, preparing for Baby D, and just being pregnant in general, my brain is all over the place. We had our last doctors visit before our due date this week and our doctor says she’s hopeful for a Dec 30th baby, but has a feeling we’ll meet her the first or second week of January. She wants me to be prepared for the latter, so I don’t get my hopes up just to be let down. While I don’t mind a little more time to get all my to-do list items checked off, I’m ready to not be pregnant anymore and of course meet our baby girl. I guess, the waiting game begins…

Easy & Casual Christmas Day Outfit Inspiration

Crystalin Marie Maternity Style

Before Oregon and before Mike, my family Christmas traditions always included breakfast, gifts, lounging around, watching the hyped up basketball games, and going to the movies. It was something I grew up on and really got used to. If there was any sort of fancy get-together, it was always done on Christmas Eve. It allowed for Christmas day to be super relaxing (no getting ready, which is always awesome!). Things have changed since, and while I still don’t love the idea of getting dressed and ready on Christmas day, I’m getting used to it. We’ll have to see how and if our traditions change once Baby D is here…

An Easy Christmas Day Outfit Idea

J.Crew red ribbon earrings

Getting dressed for Christmas day, let alone any Christmas related function is hard. I don’t have a ton of festive stuff in my closet, so sometimes I like to improvise. If you’re headed somewhere where you don’t really know the vibe, it’s nice to go with a more a subtle outfit. Sticking with basics and then elevating the look with accessories, is always your best bet. Earrings have been my go-to this year. I’m not typically an earrings girl, but they’re an easy way to transform a look without having to invest in a ton of sparkly things this time of year (also a great way to save $$). They’re also an easy way to make any look a little more feminine, which is a nice change for me, especially during the holidays.
