22 Boho Maternity Shoot

The hubs and I are both originally from Arizona, and although we love our life in L.A., the Grand Canyon State will always be home. That’s why, while in town for our baby shower a few weeks ago, we decided to use the gorgeous Sonoran Desert landscape as the backdrop for our maternity photo shoot. Deciding to take maternity photos at all was a difficult decision for me to make. My pregnancy has been hard. Between the weight gain (which no woman likes), extreme nausea that I’m still on medication for, and severe sciatica that had me completely immobile and on bed rest, I haven’t been feeling my most beautiful, glowing self. But wedding and family photographer Kaitlin, of K. Welty Photography, put me right at ease from the start. And now we’re so pleased with how well the photos depict not only the beauty of our native landscape, but the affection and joy we’re feeling so intensely for our boy. I’m thrilled to have these photos to look back on and remember such a unique moment in time.

Ahoy It's a Boy Dessert Table with anchor cake and cupcakes

Earlier this month, I was thrown the most beautiful baby shower at my parent’s home in Arizona. The whole planning process was such a labor of love on the part of my Mom and one of my oldest and dearest friends, Stephannie. The whole day was quite emotional for me, in part because of the pregnancy hormones, but mostly because of the intense gratitude I was feeling  for everyone who helped put the day together. The theme of the shower was “Ahoy It’s a Boy!”– fitting, seeing as how our little one’s nursery is decorated in a nautical theme. Read Full Article →

Lose something you never really had | Wonder Years QuoteToday is the due date for the baby the hubs and I lost last May. I know I usually keep things pretty  upbeat and lively on this blog, but above all else, I want this to be a place for inspiration, understanding and empathy among women. So today, I’d like to tell you the story of my first baby.

Even though months have gone by since I miscarried, the tears still puddle in the corners of my eyes, and my fingers still tremble at the keyboard as I type. The pain will probably never completely go away– anyone who’s lost a baby during pregnancy will tell you this. And boy are there are a lot of us. Read Full Article →

Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer green army jacket from Nordstrom

With the weather warming up, my army jacket has become a staple in my Spring wardrobe. I picked up my Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer army jacket from Nordstrom a couple months ago. It’s sold out since, but is still available in other colors. Otherwise, the classic green can also be found here. Though the jacket is incredibly slouchy and comfortable, I love the hidden drawstring that nips the silhouette in at the waist for a figure-flattering fit.

The army jacket has no doubt been a hot trend as of late, and I am a big fan of its versatility. It can be worn with anything from denim, to florals…even lace, which you can see from the 4 distinctive looks pictured below. Read Full Article →
