Accessories are a few of my favorite things! Jewelry, purses, belts, sunglasses, and shoes — You name it, and I probably love it. So, what comes to mind when you hear the term, ‘accessories?’ If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably thinking about accessorizing an outfit. But, I’m here to tell you that those aren’t the only type of accessories worth obsessing over!

As you all know, this pregnancy has forced me to stay home more than usual… and now I’ve developed a newfound obsession for desk accessories! Yes, having a stylish desk is one of the latest and greatest trends, and I can’t get enough of it. These pieces add creative decor to my at-home desk, increase my motivation (because they’re cute!), and are actually functional.

One Dress, Three Ways

06 / 16 / 16

There is nothing I love more in a piece of clothing than versatility! Statement pieces are great on occasion, but I always get an oddly satisfying feeling when I buy a dress that is stylish but simple enough to be mixed and matched with items I already have.

Styling versatile pieces can be tricky because you don’t want anyone to know that you are wearing the same dress, just a different purse, pair of shoes, and jacket. But, once you know what your doing, this styling trick might save you during your next outfit crisis!

Trend Alert: Chic Chokers

06 / 10 / 16

As much as we look back at previous decades and cringe at the trends we wore, there’s no hiding the influence the nineties have had on the fashion industry. From overalls to plaid skirts, 90s fashion broke every rule possible. If a celebrity couple stepped out wearing all-denim ensembles at one of today’s red carpets, they’d most likely be put on the ‘Worst Dressed List’ for all of eternity. But, when Britney and Justin did it? Hey, it was the nineties!

Although I love a good pair of overalls, my favorite 90s trend has been making a comeback… chokers! Yes, it’s true, I am madly in love with these little accessories. Not only are they one of the simplest pieces of jewelry, but they will also have you embracing your inner 14-year-old and feeling like Britney Spears circa “Baby One More Time.” See below for some of my favorite choker styles!

Cute Items That Double As Jewelry Holders

06 / 02 / 16

Am I the only one who is obsessed with jewelry but has nowhere to put it all?! Jewelry is a huge guilty pleasure of mine because I can never have enough of one thing. Think about it: it doesn’t matter if you already have three dainty gold necklaces, you don’t have one that has your initials on it, so there’s no reason to NOT get that necklace… even though you can only wear one at a time!

Boys may not be able to relate to this dilemma, but I know there are lots of girls out there nodding their heads in agreement. So, if your jewelry storage is getting out of hand, then it is time to invest in a larger jewelry holder! I know what you’re probably thinking, “Ugh, another expensive thing that is just going to sit there?” But, these pieces are anything but expensive jewelry boxes. In fact, they aren’t even meant to hold jewelry!

Showered With Love

05 / 27 / 16

This past weekend, my Aunt Connie hosted the most beautiful baby shower for me. Words can’t describe how thankful I am for all of the friends and family who came out to shower the baby with love — Corey and I are so incredibly lucky to have you in our lives!

And a special thank you to Aunt Connie for pulling this all together — she did an amazing job! Everything from the food to the decor was gorgeous and paid tribute to our theme: Vintage Mermaids! Check out the details below:

Aunt Connie even arranged this candy area with all of my favorite sweets! The rose-covered cake had ‘baby girl’ written across the front of it. We didn’t want to eat it at first because it was too pretty! But, we obviously ended up demolishing it once we snapped a few quick pics to document its beauty:)

IMG_8049 FullSizeRender[1] I was so overwhelmed by the abundance of gifts and excitement surrounding the arrival of the baby! It was great to have a relaxing day to catch up with friends and family. We even played a game where everyone had to guess the distance around my belly! I’m practically all bump nowadays, which made for a hilarious guessing game!

Thank you all again!! She is so lucky to have such a wonderful group of people here to welcome her into this world. Although our June due date is approaching faster than we know it, we are so ready! Shopping for new clothes has come to a complete halt since we are so close to my due date, which means I’ve been forced to resort to wearing anything I can squeeze myself into! Outfit details below:

Dress: American Apparel
Shoes: Free People
Bracelet: Emerald Duv (Similar Here)
Necklace: Nordstrom
