After having my baby exactly one month ago from today (can’t believe how fast it has flown by!), it has been exciting and a bit challenging dressing this post baby body. I can fit into some of my old clothing, but not much of it quite yet. With a newborn in the house, who really has time to get ‘dressed’?! This look is my easy and comfy go-to outfit. Joggers + an easy to nurse in tee + sneakers + a tailored coat = you can do no wrong!
We had a major freeze here this week and so that meant pulling out all my sweaters and hats from last winter and getting to mix them into my wardrobe again, which is always so fun! I am wearing my favorite trusty caftan layered over some leggings and comfy moccasins and on top I have on a huge, warm cardigan and a floppy pom pom beanie. Being 38 weeks pregnant, getting dressed has become quite the challenge. It is 100% about comfort these days, and what is more comfy than a caftan and leggings and layers of knits?! Also, say hello to Boone dog who made a special appearance in today’s post!
Nothing says ‘Hello November’ more than buffalo plaid. It just looks like the holidays all wrapped up in one warm, fuzzy print. It is bold but also so easy to wear and style with other things. I love the way this coat fits like a long blazer; the tailored fit makes it so versatile and much easier to wear than a big bulky coat. I paired it with some comfy black joggers, a chambray maternity shirt and some clog boots. There are so many fun ways to bring some buffalo plaid into your wardrobe for the fall/winter season!
Ponchos are the perfect way to bring the coziness of the season to your outfits. There is something so rustic and cool about a good poncho; it’s like you just stepped out of your mountainside cabin in the woods. They can layer over practically anything, they are so easy to wear and they will keep you as warm as a can be for those crisp autumn evenings. There are lots of great ponchos to choose from this season too, so you are sure to find one that perfect one (or five)!
I am sure this kind of outfit is something I will wear A LOT once I become a mama. Just as easy to wear as it is to pick out of your closet. Layers and layers of comfy things that somehow when all thrown on together look like you actually tried…pretty much the perfect combination right? I am wearing some of my favorite things in this outfit: the best maternity leggings out there by Preggo Leggings, wedge sneakers, a fitted black dress, a long black hooded cardigan and a great little leather hat. Boom. I could wear this all day. I could even sleep in it, and being 34 weeks pregnant (6 weeks to go! yay!) I really just wish I could just wear my pi’s all day anyways. I thought this would be a little more appropriate than pajamas for the real world, and thankfully it is just as comfy!
Today I am bringing you a little nursery tour for my sweet baby boy, Stiles Vaughan, who is due in a few weeks! I wanted a room for him that felt like it had been lived in for a long time already and not just full of a bunch of random new baby things that usually go in a nursery. I wanted to somehow combine black and white with lots of color pops and that cozy cabin vibe with clean modern lines so that it would flow with the rest of our home. I am so happy with how it all turned out and I can’t to put a certain little someone in it soon!

As my pregnancy progresses, it is getting harder and harder to dress the bump without looking huge and uncomfortable. That is, until I found this funky little maternity dress from Asos Maternity! It is has a great pattern, it is comfortable and flattering and can be worn so many different ways! An outfit that is easy to throw on in 5 seconds that makes you look like you tried hard, is the perfect thing for me these days when all I really want to wear are giant tee shirts and sweatpants. It is an overall confidence and mood booster when you find a dress like this one that makes you feel great AND is easy to wear all day. In the first set of photos I paired the dress with some 70s inspired platforms and a structured hat which is something I would wear out for a date night or for a nice event, such as a baby shower. The second look is more laid back with a little rebel with a grey anorak and some Dr. Martens. If you are currently preggers, I highly suggest this dress!
One of my favorite fall trends is sweatpants and heels. Comfy meets dressed up. Casual meets cool. Being on the last leg of my pregnancy now, I will take any excuse to wear sweatpants! As the weather is really starting to cool down this is such a winning combo for me, and I plan to wear it every single day throughout this season. To add more interest to the outfit I also wore my new LB crossover maternity tee, a lightweight chambray shirt, a western leather hat and hiking boot inspired heels.
