Marshalls Fab Found Fashion: Recap!

 

Thank you to everyone who came out for the Marshalls Fab Found Spring Fashion event last week!

Plenty of cupcakes, spring styles, fantastic prizes and fabulous people.

I personally gave away a cute neon clutch and this lovely trio of mirrored shapes- to one Miss Najeema. Send me pics of them in your new apartment please;)

Look at how gorgeous all my fabulous co-hosts are! Demonstrating all the important spring trends in one shot (lace, florals, maxi dresses, and navy/green color blocking!). Clearly I missed the memo on nude heels.

Minor miracle, I also survived the entire night in heels. Though I was eager to take them off when I reached the car.

Any fab finds at Marshalls lately? I'll definitely be back to the Fenway location soon.

Bump Dressing at 22 Weeks: Loose Layers, Camo & Paisley

Maternity wear is all about comfort. Hence, I have been living in these boots. They are not only comfortable, flats, but in gold they seriously go with everything. 

I have also discovered the wonders of Old Navy. It's been a while since I have visited them, but they have been a god send when it comes to cheap, cute, on trend maternity gear. Why pay a fortune when you will only spend a few months in these items? These jeans were a no brainer. Basic dark denim wash, at such great pricing you and afford to get a few pairs....I got two!

And a confession. You don't often see the bump well defined in my outfits, because I am just starting to get used to people wanting people touch it! Not naturally a touchy person, the growing bump has hatched a new host of issues around personal space. I haven't had problems with complete strangers......yet.....but when it comes to the bump, I feel you should ask, or be invited for the touch, right? Pretty much everyone has done this (with the exception of my mother, who I guess gets a pass;). The Mr. claims it is just too cute not to touch though, and understands others temptation. It's new, like the pregnancy and I'm sure I'll get more comfortable with it as time goes on. How have you/would you handle the issue?

I took this photo last week and the belly feels enormous post Paris (though that could be to massive macaron consumption, and cupcake consumption last night, more than anything else).

The babymoon was fabulous, but exhausting! Glad to be back home in Boston and ready to focus on operation baby shower.

Marshalls Fab Found Spring Fashion Event Tonight!

"Maxi dresses make short gals look shorter = myth. There's nothing more lengthening than a sleek, long dress - and you can't beat the price tag on this one!”
