Dressing the Bump / Fall Outfits

Alright guys, this is my last pre-baby episode of Dressing the Bump! We're at 36 weeks and talking about how to layer for fall with blazers, jackets, sweater dresses, and long-sleeve rompers. 

These videos have been really fun to make for you, and it's also challenged me to really celebrate that bump while pregnant. I hope you'll share this series with your sisters, friends, and co-workers who are expecting! I have one last post-baby bump video coming after our little lady arrives and will cover that "post-baby bump" as well as some great pieces to wear while nursing.

a thank you necklace DIY! 3 Oct 2014

Marbled Necklace DIY

Happy Friday friends! For this second baby, we didn't have an actual baby shower, but some of my YouTube friends decided to throw me a Virtual Baby Shower! Each one of them is sharing a video of something they’d make to contribute to a real life baby shower.

As a thank you, today I’m going to show you how to make these Thank You Baubles. Rather than just writing a card, you can make these little necklaces to send to friends with a thank you note to show how much you appreciate their gifts or for hosting your shower. The best part is, they are super easy to make but look like you spent way more time than you actually did! And your friends get a little keepsake they can use and wear regularly!

P.S. Have a great weekend and stay tuned next week for another fun marbling project!

Dressing the Bump - 32 Weeks

We're at 32 weeks, and I'm excited to share the sixth episode of my Dressing the Bump series! This week, I'm talking about how to dress for formal occasions while pregnant. It can be tricker to get dressy while pregnant because there aren't as many options as when dressing casually. So, we're taking a look at a mix of maternity and non-maternity pieces to wear for weddings, work events, or a date night out.

We're at 28 weeks, and I'm excited to share the fifth episode of my Dressing the Bump series! This week, I'm talking about how to buy and wear vintage while pregnant.
