In Between Stage

Rag & Bone sweater (on sale) / T by Alexander Wang blouse (sold out, similar here) / Gap hat (similar here) / Chilli Beans sunglasses c/o / Chanel boyfriend bag / A Pea In the Pod jeans / Rag & Bone Kinsey boot

About the time this was shot, I was about 16 weeks pregnant. I am completely in that in-between stage where I am not fully showing if not wearing something tight. These winter days with the cold temps in NYC, I  have been all about layering so for now I am okay with just looking like I packed on a few winter pounds until I can start shedding the layers!

Maternity Must-Haves

Maternity Must-Haves

1) I said it in my December update, but if there is one thing I couldn't live without during this pregnancy it is the Bump Nest pregnancy pillow. I highly recommend it!
2) I wasn't a huge water drink prior to my pregnancy and that is one thing I am really working on now. I found it easier to fill up a water bottle and drink throughout the day, continuously filling up the bottle to ensure I drank enough.
3) Leggings have been one thing I am living in. With no need to get dressed up, they are comfortable and easy. My favorite every day leggings are from Splendid and I love David Lerner leggings.
4) Being cozy in the winter is so important, and these pajamas are a part of my nightly apparel.
5) I am trying to hold off on buying any maternity tops and have been lucky enough to borrow a bunch of sweaters from my mom. They are just a size up and so easy to throw on in this cold weather.
6) I love that I can still pull off jeans that I love and would wear on a regular basis, just in maternity sizes. My faves are AG jeans and 7 for all mankind
7) Splendid has always been one of my fave brands for comfort and I was so excited to see they carry maternity. I have been living in their leggings and shirts. I also have scooped up a few of their adorable baby sets. P.S. they are offering 25% off right now!
8) A little bit of makeup can go a long way. When I am not feeling my best, I like to give myself a fresh face of makeup with a bright lip. It can do wonders!

Giving Back

TOMS for Target sweatshirt c/o / Adrienne Landau fur vest / AG maternity jeans / Frye boots

I'm excited to team up with Target again and talk about their amazing TOMS for Target collection. There is nothing better than buying something, knowing that you are giving back to your community. TOMS does exactly that, with this Target collaboration, each item you purchase gives shoes, a blanket or meals to those who are in need. I picked this terry sweatshirt that I know will be on repeat this winter, whether layering it over a collared shirt, throwing on a fur vest or pairing it with a pair of leather pants. Be sure to check out the collection here and get in that holiday spirit!
