BabyMoon Essentials

Colorful-Baby-Moon-Angel-Graphic

So next week, the hubs and I will be embarking on a much deserved BabyMoon. What is that, you ask? Well, it’s a new trend where couples take a vacation during pregnancy – similar to a honeymoon. As my pregnancy progresses, I realized I hadn’t gone on vacation since right before I found out I was pregnant and I’m really needing one more than ever. My feet have grown sore and I’m pretty tired on a constant basis. The idea of just laying around being pampered by the sea sounds exactly like what I need right now.

We’ll be heading to The Florida Keys for 4 days to do exactly that. Now it’s not the easiest vacation to dress for since I’m expanding a little more these days, so I thought I’d help out other expectant moms and just travelers in general with some great beach essentials for those upcoming summer getaways.

Now this is an area that you can really play with even when pregnant. It may be difficult to find really cute and fun pieces to wear, but it’s a free for all when it comes to accessories! Since we are going the beach route, I wanted to make sure I had a little¬†brightness and silliness. No one takes themselves too seriously on the beach – much less in The Keys.

5 Fandom Friday: Characters With My Favorite Fictional Fashion

Fandom Friday

Brought to you by The Nerdy Girlie & Super Space Chick

This week’s prompt could not be more appropriate! I was so excited to see another fashion-themed topic, although this one proved to be a tough one! I adore so many characters’ sense of style so it was difficult to narrow down, but here are my top 5!

1. Jess {New Girl}; although I’m no longer a fan of the show (it just got old), I am obsessed with Jess’ wardrobe. I think it has something to do with the fact that Zoey Descahnel just decided to dress like herself because her every day wardrobe basically looks exactly the same. She’s one of my fashion icons, so…yeah, total no brainer.

The Age of Adaline {Fashion Through the Ages} & GIVEAWAY!

AgeD3-010.dng

I’m sure all of you have seen the trailer for the new Blake Lively flick, The Age of Adaline. The film revolves around a woman that somehow was able to remain 29 years old for almost 8 decades. She manages to keep this a secret until she falls in love. The rest can get a little dicey. Naturally, a film spanning 8 decades is going to focus on fashion and The Age of Adaline does just that.

I thought it would be fun to show you all how you too can fool people into thinking you are ageless with your fashion – all it takes is incorporating a few key pieces from different decades into your modern wardrobe. Check it out!

70s70’s.
I tend to gravitate towards 60’s and 70’s styles. I love the more flared silhouettes and free flowing fabrics. Not to mention all the fun hair accessories! With that said, it’s easy to incorporate these looks into a modern outfit. I personally think this would make a great music festival outfit (think SunFest, South Florida locals…). Pair a basic crop top with a pair of extreme flare jeans, add a fun flower headpiece and your most comfortable pair of sandals and boom! You got a retro modern look that would make anyone flash the peace sign your way.

{Hunger Games Week}: Jennifer Lawrence’s Mockingjay Style

Yes, I know I am kind of behind on all the Hunger Games premiere fashion, but I just had to touch on the fact that I love that Jennifer Lawrence has been subtly paying tribute to her character, Katniss, in her gown choices. Would you not agree? Her two separate gold frocks made me immediately think of the now infamous mockingjay pin she wears in the games, her back-baring Tom Ford reminded me of the flame suits and/or the moment Katniss embraces being the mockingjay and finally, the absolutely stunning Marchesa worn in Berlin just screamed girl on fire.

More importantly, which was your favorite?
I personally think Jennifer rocked it out in every look, but my personal favorite was her glimmery gold Prabal Gurung complete with sexy cut outs and dramatic train. When I saw her, I literally gasped. Girl knows how to work a red carpet!

*the rest of this week will be all Hunger Games, all the time leading up to the mega-watt premiere this weekend!
