Dressing the Baby Bump: 37-38 Weeks & Bumptastic Maternity Style

Above: Old Navy maternity dress (updated for fall here), GAP denim vest (no longer avail but J Crew has a great version), Super Ciccio glasses, Proenza Schouler PS1 (old- but obsessed with this B&W patent number), Erotokritos ermis sandals, Patch NYC bracelet, and necklace, Yuri Tozuka via Reside


Behold, the bump in all it's nearly full sized glory.

No wonder my heartburn has been so bad- there is no room left for my stomach! Though, the Rx from doc worked like a charm and I am happy, no, ecstatic to report that I have been heartburn free for the last few days. I even ventured to eat some tomatoes.....feeling pretty reckless.

And restless. How many times I can organize the same closet? Nesting, in full effect. At least husband benefited from a full closet clean out.

Weekend filled with cleaning, projects, organizing, and brunch with some fantastic ladies. Hope your weekend was as fabulous! And hope to have some exciting news to share soon....


CSA Cooking: Strawberry Creamcheese Bread Recipe


I joined our local CSA here in town, really not sure what to expect, but have been totally pleasantly surprised by the people and the produce. It is lovely seeing my neighbors, neighborhood pals, and new people every week while I pick up all my fruits and veggies. Sometimes I plan ahead when they send the weekly email, sometimes, I wing it and see what the farms throw at me.

Veronica Beard F/W 2013

My fall shopping list, heavy on pretty much everything Veronica Beard: tweed, trenches, texture.....

I was lucky enough to catch this season's collection in NYC in February (post on Veronica Beard presentation here) and now I am trying to figure out what exactly I should buy.

Maybe time for the ultimate VB investment piece? The blazer? Or, go off season and pick up these fabulous print pants from the spring/summer line? I am still obsessed with them and think they would transition well into fall with a blazer, no?

Either way, I'll be checking out the collection in person at Viola Lovely's newest locale, in the South End. They are the only local spot to carry the up and coming brand. Set to open this month, my fall fashion shopping is waiting on baited breath, thinking of all the Nonoo, Veronica Beard, Jerome Dreyfuss and Isabel Marant goodness to come.
