Valentines!

Valentines is only a couple weeks away so I thought I would dedicate today's post to all the things I wish I could wear right now (see sets below) and a casual cute look if you're planning on something low key (like me!)
(36 Weeks Prego)

This comfy oversized cable knit sweater is on sale now for $25! I paired it with my Sam Edelman over the knee boots (best investment ever!) a leopard bucket bag and my go to red lip (Mac Lady Danger) to give it a little more of a festive vibe! Simple, cute and comfy! 

I love that is can be worn off the shoulder as well!

Sweater c/o Windsor
Paige Maternity Denim
Sam Edelman Over The Knee Boots 
Jerome Dreyfus Leopard Print Bucket Bag

and now on to all the pieces I wish I could fit into right now ;) Red, Black, Lace, Mesh, Plunging, thigh high splits....bring it on!







 I also wanted to include some Cheap chic options for my babes on a budget. All these style below are $100 or less!I love a high waist leather pencil skirt combined with a lace crop top. If you're going a little more casual/cute you can rock some distressed skinnies or boyfriend jeans with a lace cami and leather jacket and killer heels for a laid back but still sexy vibe.

and lastly some pretty little things to spice it up a bit! Some lacey items for him, fab heels and statement jewelry! I'm really into fun statement earrings right now and these below are super affordable (and would also make great gifts for your girlfriends too!).

Random Shots from My Baby Sprinkle!

Monday we meet again! I finally got around to collecting pics from my girlfriends from my baby sprinkle last weekend and wanted to share a few with you ladies! To be completely honest when they asked to throw a shower for me this time around I wasn't really 100% on board. I didn't even know you did showers for your second child but apparently some people do what's called a baby "sprinkle". Instead of having someone host one and decorate their house etc I opted for something simple. I wanted to just to do a fab bubbly filled brunch (mocktails for me) with a great view and just a few of my closest girlfriends and I couldn't have been happier with how it all turned out! 
How stunning is this view?! Splashes at the Surf and Sand in Laguna is one of my favorite spots for dining with a view! You're literally right on the water and the weather couldn't have been more perfect! When I first started thinking about a baby sprinkle brunch this place immediately popped in my mind! 

If you haven't dined there yet I HIGHLY recommend it!

How pretty are these arrangements?! I wanted something simple/ neutral with some succulents and little milk thistle to add just a touch of blue...for our baby boy ;)
I probably should have hired someone to take a few pics for us but really just wanted to keep everything very simple. So we made do with selfies and camera phones ;)

Thank you to my lovely lovely ladies for making this day so fun!


My girlfriend brought some yummy blue cupcakes from Magnolia's with little boy shoes on them ;) And another girlfriend brought some OPI nail polishes in grays and blues with a cute bow as a favor for everyone.  I forgot to get a picture but thought it was such a cute touch, and who doesn't love a good OPI polish?!

I really didnt have time to go out and find  a new dress because we kept postponing and rescheduling this brunch. So when it finally went through I only had a couple days to plan and to be honest was over going out and shopping for a new dress at 9 months pregnant ;) Luckily I had this pretty coral DVF maxi dress I scored on eBay a few years ago and it still fit! (My favorite feather gold cuff HERE and similar affordable bump flattering coral maxi dress HERE)



and lastly my girlfriends that hosted it asked all my friends to bring a "boy" book in place of a card. I thought it was such sweet touch with all the hand written messages to him. Not to mention the fact that I hadn't thought of most of our books in our house now were girl books ;)

I couldn't have asked for a better baby sprinkle and am SO glad we did it! Things are so busy right now that it actually made this a little more surreal....we're having s son!! ;)

I hope all of you lovelies have a great week!!
