    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.

    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!…
