Arriving in December

I’ve been keeping a little secret, and today is the day I’m finally going to share the news. My husband and I are expecting our first child this December! We are over the moon excited, and we can’t wait to meet him or her around Christmas time! I’m currently 14 weeks pregnant, and excited to be in the second trimester. It’s so crazy to see all the changes that my body has gone through already while our little miracle grows. I’ve been really lucky and have only experienced fatigue in the first trimester, and I’m hoping that does get better with time. I’m looking forward to sharing this journey with you, and showcase some maternity clothes as well!

For these pictures, I really wanted a boho vibe for my outfit so I chose this navy off the shoulder maxi dress from Pink Blush. I love the way that these pictures turned out, and they are definitely pictures that we will always treasure.

Road Trip Essentials for Your Pet-@headtotoechic-Head to Toe Chic
If you follow me on Instagram you see a lot of our dog Lilly on my Instagram Stories (@akeeleywhite). My husband and I love spending time with her, and we really enjoy coming up with new activities to do with our energetic 5 year old lab. Now that summer time is here it is the perfect time to take a road trip with Lilly! We love taking trips down to the lake, and Lilly loves to come along for the ride. You can find her either sticking her head out the window, or taking a nap in the back seat. Here are some of the essentials that we bring along for Lilly whenever we take a road trip:

1.Food: Food is a necessity for everyone for a road trip, but especially for our food motivated dog. Not only does Lilly eat Purina® Pro Plan® at each meal, but we also like to give it to her as her treats as well. Lilly has been eating Purina® Pro Plan® Savor Adult Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice ever since we adopted her. We started purchasing her food on Amazon.com using Subscribe & Save a few years ago and we seriously couldn’t be happier. We used to have to take a special trip to the pet store for her food, which was honestly a little inconvenient. Now her food shows up automatically on our front porch each month which has been a huge time saver for us, and the Subscribe & Save also saves us money on her food which is amazing. There is now less paying, and more playing because of Amazon.com which is perfect for this lab that has a lot of energy! We now have more time to spend with Lilly, and to take trips with her to the lake. If you haven’t used Subscribe & Save before you can save $5 off your first purchase. You can also save 5% when you subscribe for one product, or up to 15% when you subscribe for five products.

2. Hammock: We have a dog hammock in the back seat of our car which has been really great. It’s perfect for road trips because it prevents Lilly from trying to climb into the front seat, and it also keeps her dog hair from covering the seats.

3. Water bowl: Everyone needs to stay hydrated, and we have a collapsible water bowl that we keep in the car for Lilly. After she runs around at the lake she is always thirsty, so we keep water in the car to pour into her bowl. Once she’s done we just fold it back up, and put it back in the car. It’s so easy and convenient!

4. Toys: There are certain toys that Lilly can’t live without. They keep her entertained on the way to the lake, and also once we are there.

5. Leash and collar: We aren’t able to let Lilly run around at the lake without her leash and collar (hopefully we can one day!). We have a retractable leash that still gives her plenty of room to run, and we’re also able to store treats and bags in the compartment on her leash as well which is nice.

Maxi Skirt

Confession: this is the first maxi skirt that I’ve ever owned. I’m sure this might shock all the maxi skirt lovers out there, but I’ve never been much of a skirt person. It’s also so hard to find maxi skirts and dresses that fit well when you’re only 5’1″. Enter J.Jill and their petite sized clothing to save the day, and finally help me add a maxi skirt to my closet! I absolutely love the print and the colors of this one, and it pairs perfectly with this white top that ties in the front. I can definitely see myself wearing this a lot this summer! What do you think of maxi skirts?

Summer Totes

Now that it’s officially pool and beach season, it’s time to break out your favorite summer tote! I really love to bring a straw tote with me to the beach, and I have a couple that I really love. There are so many great ones that I’ve spotted though while doing some online shopping, so I thought it would be fun to show you some of my favorites! The Nannacay tote is definitely at the top of my wish list. Which is your favorite?
