I can’t get enough of Target, and sometimes I just go there to wander around which is always a dangerous thing. During one of those trips, I found this plaid maternity top and I knew that I add to add it to my wardrobe! Target has really stepped up their game in their clothing department, and I love their new maternity line by Ingrid and Isabel. With this top, I really like that the tie around the waist accentuates my growing baby bump right now, but after I have the baby I think I’ll tie it around the back instead and it will be the perfect top for nursing as well. I really love wearing it with a pair of maternity leggings like I am here, and I think that this would also be an ideal outfit to wear for Thanksgiving. I seriously can’t believe that it’s only 2 weeks away! This year we’ll be staying in town for the holiday which is definitely a change, but I’m looking forward a very laid back Thanksgiving before the baby gets here.
Recently, I’ve had to purchase a couple new pairs of shoes for my poor swollen feet. One pair that I purchased are these mules that I found on Amazon for less than $30! I was searching high and low for the perfect pair of neutral mules, and they were so hard to find for some reason. I finally stumbled across these and I really love the blush color, the fun bow, and the fact that they are insanely comfortable. I’ve been wearing these shoes on repeat lately and definitely suggest them if you’re in the market for a new pair of mules!
What will you be wearing for Thanksgiving?

I’ve been hunting for a fall maxi dress for a while now, but it’s a hard thing to find when you’re only 5’1″ (and horrible about taking things to get tailored)! I recently found this maxi dress for less than $35 while doing some shopping on Amazon (I feel like I’m buying everything on Amazon these days, anyone else?) and figured that it was worth a shot to see if it would fit me well. I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m only purchasing clothes right now that I’ll be able to wear while pregnant and also after I have the baby, and I thought that this dress would fit the bill! The elastic waist band is stretchy enough for my 8 month pregnant belly, and the buttons down the front will make it perfect for nursing once baby girl is here. I wore this outfit to a friend’s baby shower a few weeks ago which was perfect for the occasion, and I’m glad that I’m getting so much use out of this dress already! It also comes in a few other prints and colors, and there are some short sleeve options as well that you can find here. I’m definitely thinking I might need to purchase a couple more for my closet with the affordable price tag. Do you have a fall maxi dress that you love?
On a side note, I purchased these gold earrings from BaubleBar for the holidays last year and I’ve worn them over and over again (and purchased them in multiple colors too). If you’re looking for a fun pair of statement earrings to wear to a holiday party this year I definitely suggest this metallic pair. They would also make a great gift too!

Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week! When I was looking at items to feature in today’s blog post I couldn’t help but be drawn to more neutral pieces! What I’m loving lately about neutral pieces is the fact that they can be mixed and matched and worn in a variety of ways, which is true about each of these items featured below. The one item that’s at the top of my wish list this week is this Patagonia vest. Last year my husband and I both purchased Patagonia’s Better Sweater Vests, and we fell in love with them. It’s a really great layering piece for when the weather cools down, and I actually wore it when we went to Ireland when we went to visit the Cliffs of Moher and it was perfect. I got so much use out of that vest, that I’m looking to add another one to my wardrobe but I want one that’s a little different than the one I already own. I really love this one pictured below with the fuzzy texture which makes it look so warm and cozy, and hopefully a good piece to invest in after I have the baby.
The other item that I really love are these open toe booties by Lucky Brand. This is the kind of shoe that I absolutely love to wear in the Fall, but I don’t think they are in the cards for me right now. Pregnancy has made my feet so swollen, and I had to purchase a couple pairs of new flats and ankle boots so that I have something to wear before the baby arrives. We’ll have to see if my feet grow or not, and if they do I’ll definitely be purchasing these booties to add to my closet. Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?

The holidays are right around the corner which is a little hard to believe! I decided to start sharing some gift guides a little earlier than I usually do, because the holidays have definitely been on my mind lately with baby girl arriving in just a few weeks. I’m trying to get prepared for the holidays earlier than I normally do and I keep thinking about how different this year is going to be with her arriving right around Christmas time! I’ve already finished my holiday shopping which is definitely unusual for me, and I’m also thinking about what decorations I want to have out this year to help keep it low maintenance. Today I want to share a holiday gift guide with items for her that I found while shopping around Cameron Village a couple weeks ago:
I stopped by MyEyeDr. to take a look at their sunglasses selection when I was in Cameron Village. I have a couple pairs of designer sunglasses that are great investment pieces and that will last a long time, and I definitely think they would be the perfect gift if you’re looking to treat someone on your list! I love these two pairs by Chanel and also by Tory Burch because of the shape, color, and quality.
Light Years Jewelry:
I also stopped by Light Years Jewelry to look at their accessories selection for some of the ladies on my shopping list. I found some great items for winter like this cozy scarf and gorgeous tote that would go with a lot of different outfits. I also found this fun red tassel necklace and beaded earrings that would make great gifts, and they would also be gorgeous pieces to wear to an upcoming holiday party as well!
Stay tuned for my holiday gift guide for him next week!
Thanks to Cameron Village for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
