    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…

    A Casual Day || Styling Jeans

    If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you’ll probably know that I wear jeans on a very, very rare basis. I can think of perhaps five posts total in the last nine years that have featured me in pants of some kind, and two of those were when I was pregnant. Like any mom, I often wear leggings (let’s be honest, I wear them on a daily basis) because they’re comfortable and easy to move in. But, not being a jeans girl, I never thought I’d ever choose jeggings… and love them. Enter Pink Blush.

    Love at First (Pink) Blush || a weekend away in Seaside, Oregon

    This weekend, my husband took me away on a surprise vacation trip to Seaside, Oregon for an early thirtieth birthday present. We left our kids with my parents, packed our bags, and set off on an adventure. To our delight, we were surprised with gorgeous weather. No rain, barely any clouds, no need for a coat. It really was perfect! Any time we get away, we always pack an extra-fancy outfit to have a dolled up dinner in, and this time I chose this beautifully classic navy Pink Blush dress to wear.
