High Waists and Studs with a Dash of Sparkle...

Hello my loves and Happy Thursday.

I hope each of you are off to a great start.

I'm super excited that the weekend is almost here-I'm planning to participate in a yard/stockpile sale with my Mother and spend some time with her and my sister discussing plans for my little Peanut's upcoming baby shower. His dad and I are also planning to finally put his crib together sometime this week. I feel like I'm so behind with this whole nursery thing. At times I find myself worrying about things not being done by the time he gets here but when I bring myself back to reality, I realize that I may be overexxagerating just a tad.

However, I'm not exaggerating when I say that pregnancy has given me some new found curves. Like wowzers, where did these boobs come from!?

 I'm loving every moment of them. LOL

I'm also loving this super comfy outfit that I put together to attend a Yelp event in my area last month.

Oh, and this grand piano!!!! Honey, I wasn't leaving the scene without taking some pictures by this gorgeousness. I mean who would be able to resist this breathtaking, picture perfect moment?

NOT I!!!

I also couldn't resist the urge to pair these high waisted pants with this cute little bolero jacket that I snagged from Plato's a couple of seasons ago. Now let me tell you, I've never really been a super huge fan of high waists OR wide leg pants but these worked so well for me.

For starters, they have lots of elastic in the waistband so they fit comfortably over my 6 month bump, which I can't keep my hands and eyes off of. Secondly, the studs had me at hello and thirdly, they were only 7 bucks at a clearance event Dillards. Major score!!!

I was initially on the fence about what to pair the pants with because I didn't want a top that would take away from the studs on both the pants and the bolero so I went to a trusty, solid colored tank that I got at one of Old Navy's '2 Dollar' tank sales.

I think everything tied in together really well-especially with the dash of sparkle from the necklace and my infamous Target clutch. This was unexpectedly one of my favorite outfits of the month.

What do you all think of the high waist trend?

I can't wait to hear from you.

Thanks so much for reading.

How To Wear: High Waists

Happy Tuesday my loves....

I hope everyone is off to a great start this morning. I'm running a bit late but hey, better late than never, right!?

Today I wanted to discuss a recent trend that I experimented with a couple of weeks ago-high waists. If you aren't a regular visitor, then you probably aren't aware that I'm expecting a baby boy in December. Therefore, when it comes to style these days, I'm drawn towards anything that's comfy and functional for my expanding midsection.

High waistlines afford me the opportunity to completely cover my bump without looking like Steve Urkel. I believe that this style was made especially for expecting women such as myself. I'm not too sure that I would wear this trend if it weren't for my bump.
