    Fluttering Into Summer || Lady V London Della Skirt Review

    It’s that time of my pregnancy where I’m finally feeling pregnant. I can’t walk around too much, the baby has dropped, I’m nesting, and suddenly I’ve realized that I have to get everything ready before this precious bundle arrives! On top of which, I’m just so pregnant and nothing fits. Except this glorious skirt from Lady V London, the butterfly border Della. It’s got everything to lift my spirits these days in its comfortable fabric, pretty pattern, and pockets.  Skirt, c/o Lady V London | hat, Etsy (similar) | top, Amazon | shoes, Modcloth (similar) | brooches, vintage (similar) | earrings, vintage (similar) | Lipstick, Maybelline Lip Ink in Heroine here

    Feeling Fine with Francie || Erstwilder South American Socialites

    Yesterday was one of my good friends’ birthdays, and her favorite color is pink. This, coincidentally, worked out perfectly for what I wanted to wear yesterday: the CUTEST new brooch from Erstwilder’s new South American Socialites collection! Francie the Flamingo is one of 12 adorable South American wildlife brooches that will add a cheery vibe to any outfit! I love how bright and full of personality this collection is, so I wanted to match Francie’s bright pink plumage with my own in this 1950’s circle skirt with its bright fuchsia shade.

    Coming Up Violet || Lady V London Ursula Review

    As you may notice, I teamed up with Lady V London to show off three different styles and this is the second of the three! This gorgeous gingham wiggle dress is part of their plus-size collection. The Ursula is not at all what I expected, in the very best way! I recently bought an Elsie and I adore it, but while I’m pregnant it’s not quite working with its (super cute) wrap-esque hemline and super stretchy fabric. Once I’m done being pregnant, it will be perfect for breastfeeding and it won’t ride up, but right now because of my belly and the super stretch fabric, it’s just not quite working!…

    Getting Glam in Motherhood || Lady V London Dirdle Review

    The last time I wore Lady V London for the blog, I had only just announced I was pregnant, and the gorgeous Audrey dress pulled me out of that “I feel like I just look like I ate too many tacos” phase and into the everyday glamour I strive to create for myself. This time, I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy and nothing feels glamorous… until I step into this gorgeous teal Dirdle. I can say with 100% certainty that every Lady V London dress I now own makes me feel glam, comfortable, and so beautiful!

    Hello, 30! || A Weekend In Seaside

    The weekend before my 30th birthday, my husband whisked me away for a surprise vacation, which I feel like I have said so many times now that you all must be just saying “yes, Kristina, we KNOW”.  Regardless of how many times I’ve said this, it bears repeating one last time because these photos are in front of the lovely Gilbert Inn and Suites in Seaside, Oregon, where we stayed for three days and two nights. It was a beautiful, beautiful historical home which was built in the late 1800’s and added on to for a few years until it morphed from a modest 2 bedroom cabin into the gorgeous…
