Style // Polka Dot and Stripes for the Bump

polka-dot-3
Polka Dot Knit Pencil Skirt / Forever 21 top (similar) / Twisted Band Wool Fedora / Loeffler Randall Lock Clutch / Julie Vos Lion Pendant Stone / Ralph Lauren Booties (similar) / Zara coat

I'm a big sucker for polka dots, so when I saw this Polka Dot Knit Pencil Skirt from Forever 21, I knew it would be a great non-maternity piece that I could wear now and post-pregnancy. It's got a ton of stretch but doesn't lose it's shape and it's long enough so that it won't become obscenely short when my bump keeps growing. Honestly, I wish I had found it sooner because I could've been wearing this in my first trimester too!

I decided to wear it with a knit top (similar) tucked in so you can see my figure (you guys know how I feel about that). The idea of tops tucked into skirts to show off your bump is definitely something I'm going to continue to wear throughout this pregnancy. I'm looking forward to it when the weather gets warmer since it'll be easier to rock (less layers to wear!).

Weekend Recap // Home Updates, Fab Food, & Museum Fun

photo 1
I'm thinking this Hygge and West wallpaper is going to be perfect for a statement wall in Cora's new big girl room.

How was everyone's weekend? Ours was super packed with lots of fun & food with our friends and family. Friday and Saturday were all about stuffing our faces with amazing food. It all started at our good friend, David's parents house, to celebrate his birthday. His mom and dad feasted us with an amazing lamb meal and finished it off with a homemade ice cream cake. That may sound innocent and all but I kid you not when I say that ice cream cake was the best thing I've ever eaten. Then I continued my food-filled weekend at my sister-in-law's baby sprinkle (how cute is that??) at Paladar. There were tons of great food and fabulous company, I just didn't want it to end! And to round out the weekend, we continued the food fest with a homemade pizza party with our friends. It was a great excuse to try all sorts of pizza and have fun together.

Even though we got some freezing rain/snow on Saturday night, it didn't stop us from having more fun on Sunday at the Museum of Natural History in DC. We figured it wouldn't be too busy because of the weather, and well Cora really needed to expend some energy. She was kind of bouncing off the walls being cooped up in the house. It's funny, on our way there, Steve and I couldn't even remember the last time we had been to the Museum of Natural History and boy were we surprised at how modern the exhibits were. I think we both were expecting to see some dated looking displays, but we were pleasantly surprised. Guess that just goes to show how long it's been since we were there last, huh?

When you're near a Free People, a pop-in is a must. This top caught my eye along with everything else.

I went in to Francesca's to check out there hat selection, but instead these two pieces made their way into my dressing room. Unfortunately, they didn't work for my growing bump (should've just gotten it for post-pregnancy), but I just had to share with you guys cause they both look much more high end then their price tag revealed.

That non-alcoholic strawberry mojito was gone in about 20 seconds.

I love pizza and salad and friends. Such a perfect night.

photo 3
It was kind of surreal to see my daughter in front of that memorable elephant because so many times have I been the one to be photographed in front of it as a child.

The orchid exhibit completely transported me to a tropical place and I did not want to leave. Unfortunately, Cora had other ideas, but I was glad to have snapped a few pics.

photo 2
And with the Korea exhibit, Steve and I could've spent more time in there but Cora was clearly on a different schedule. A quick run-through was all she could handle.

photo 3
My absolute favorite exhibit has been and I think always will be the gem stone exhibit. I mean, how can you not love seeing these gorgeous gems? Well, I guess it is a bit torturous but still.

I'll take that tiara and necklace, please.

Spotlight // Pixie Lily

pixie-lilly-2

Remember when I had mentioned in my recap post of our road trip to Ponte Vedra and Charleston that I was lucky enough to visit the showroom of the children's couture clothier, Pixie Lily? Leda, the owner, was so sweet and kind enough to gift Cora a beautiful, hand-embroidered frock for Spring, and well you know that meant a photo shoot was in order. And how sweet is the hand-embroidery of the posies? Leda told me that each piece of hand-embroidered clothing has the name of the lady who embroidered it on the inside tag of the garment. How cool is that? I just think it's so special that someone, instead of a machine, embroidered those sweet designs on these pieces.

Cora's wearing the Posies Dress and she just loves it! I think she's ready for Spring to get here so she can wear dresses like this one all the time!
