Trending: Chic Sweatshirts

Chic Sweatshirts on Trend for 2018

I mentioned last week how casual wear is on trend for spring and over the weekend I spotted so many cute sweatshirts while shopping in-store, I thought I would round up my favorites. I’ve been a fan of sweatshirts for what seems like forever. They seem to go in and out of style every year, which I’m so not mad at. I used to tell myself to stop buying so many sweatshirts because I needed to fill my wardrobe with other dressier pieces. Yeah, let’s just say I don’t live by that anymore. And if I needed an excuse (which I so don’t), mom life needs all the cute, comfy sweatshirts, right?!

My Go-To Pregnancy Pieces

J.Crew Wool coat with faux fur hood

I’ve received so many messages asking for my go-to pregnancy pieces and I’m happy to finally share them. I tried to keep my maternity purchases to a minimum, so my list is a mix of maternity and regular items that worked for my pregnancy. Other than bottoms, thankfully, I was able to wear a lot of the items that were already in my closet. I also stopped getting dressed around the 8th month. I would hang out at home in the same loungewear and if I had to get out of the house, I literally wore the same leggings, sneakers, sweatshirt, and coat (all of which was so not blog worthy, lol).

Favorite Purchases from 2017

2017 favorite purchases

This post is a little later than I had planned, but last year I shared my favorite purchases from the previous year and it seems like you guys enjoyed it. Picking favorites from 2017 wasn’t the easiest considering I didn’t buy a ton of investment or classic pieces due to being pregnant. When I go to choose favorite items I think about how often I wear them, practically, and whether or not I’m still wearing them into the new year. Below are 13 of my favorite purchases from 2017 and I’m telling you exactly why I’ll be wearing / using all of them in 2018.

2018 Spring Trends

Spring 2018 Trends Florals

I haven’t been able to really get into my winter wardrobe yet, so spring fashion hasn’t been totally on my radar. But, after doing some browsing the other day, I couldn’t help but gravitate toward all the new warm weather styles. I’m a cool weather kinda gal (hello layers), so it makes me laugh at myself the second I say that and than want to shop all the new spring styles. Because I got so excited about some of the pieces I saw, I thought it would be fun to share my favorite Spring 2018 trends with you. Just in case you’re having the winter blues already or are just ready to move on to spring, this post will hopefully brighten your day.

Recent Purchases + Restocks

recent purchases and restocks 1

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Honestly, I haven’t been able to distinguish the days. I couldn’t tell you if it’s the weekday or weekend, lol.  We’re over here still trying to figure out this whole newborn life, so things are a little hectic. I’m also trying to slowly get back into some sort of work routine, too, which has been tough. I keep telling myself, it will all come slowly but surely, don’t stress yourself out over it. While it’s been tough making time to blog, I will say, it’s kept me sane. It’s nice to have something you love to do to look forward to everyday, you know?

My Newborn Essentials

newborn essentials

I’ve received a ton of requests to do a post on my newborn essentials. It’s taken me a minute to get around to it, but it’s finally here! Right when we brought Harper home, we realized there were some items that we’re needed so much more than others. Even though we had nearly everything (hello type A personality and being over prepared), we needed to make a couple Amazon Prime orders to stock up on the most-used items. My brain is still in a haze these days, so I may be forgetting some things, but for the most part, this is my list. Below I’m sharing what and why each item has been an absolute essential.

LIKEtoKNOW.it. Home Takeover Products Revealed

Crystalin Marie master bedroom

Right before Christmas we had the opportunity to do an Instagram takeover for the LIKEtoKNOW.it Home account. We shared 7 photos featuring different details of our home, including the first peak of the nursery! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen the nursery by now, especially if you follow us on Stories. Everything literally came together just before we shot the photos (the rocker came the day before), which was pretty stressful. Thankfully, it all worked out. I will share more about the nursery in it’s own post, but I must say, we use that room so much now that Harper is here. I’m so happy with how it turned out. The bright white, minimal space makes me happy every time I go into the room.

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.
