    Tabitha the Tapir and Me

    It’s my last little collaborative post with Erstwilder, although you’ll definitely be seeing me sport these brooches a lot this summer. To end this three-post series, I’m styling the cutest little Tapir named Tabitha. With her delicate pink bow and pearls, and a touch of rainbow in her white belly, Tabitha is sweet and girly and exactly the kind of piece I love adding to an ultra-feminine outfit.    Brooch, c/o Erstwilder | Top thrifted (similar) | Skirt, Lindy Bop (similar) | Shoes, Amazon | headscarf, vintage (similar) | Earrings, vintage (similar)

    Husband and Wife Style || Theodore the Tamarin

    Welcome to a somewhat late installment of the next little Erstwilder brooch I got to choose: Theodore the Tamarin! With his colorful purple body and dapper top hat and monocle, Theodore struck me as a fellow with just the right amount of whimsy and class for not only myself to style… but also my husband! As soon as I saw Theo, I knew that I wanted to get my husband involved. Men just don’t get to style as many fun accessories in my opinion (see: my entire drawer set full of jewelry versus his one lonely cup of cufflinks) and when he saw Theodore he was completely on board as…

    The Tropical Harbor || Pink Blush

    When I chose this beautiful tropical print Pink Blush hi-lo maternity dress, I was expecting that I would still have 4-6 weeks of pregnancy left. I ordered it at 36 weeks and some days pregnant, and I had it set in my mind that this baby would be like my other babies and come a week or two late. I speculated that I still had a month or so to get ready for this baby fully — to purchase things like newborn diapers, white onesies, little pants, and whatever else I discovered we lack for a newborn at this point. I am a last-minute person, so most of my preparation…

    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. Brooch, c/o Erstwilder | top, thrifted (similar) | skirt, vintage (similar here, here, and here) | headscarf, vintage (lot…
