We all know that black is the most flattering color to wear because it simply just slims and always adds a level of chicness to your look. Wearing black while pregnant is of course always a good idea, especially for those days when you are feeling huge! I am 30 weeks pregnant now and this is my favorite little dress! It has a lot of good things going for it; it is fitted but still has a casual sweatpants feel, it has ruching at the hips and butt, and it is drop waist so it shows off the bump in that ‘oh, i just threw this on’ kind of way. I decided to take the all black up another notch by adding my favorite fitted over the knee boots and a black felt hat. I love the way the outfit came together and I will be wearing this one all the time through the fall.

As a mother of three, I’m always on the go. Lately, my style has become pretty casual and comfortable. I love pairing designer jeans, a soft oversized sweatshirt and fancy sneakers for a busy day. I’m so happy that this sporty chic trend is still going strong as it really suits my mood. I was in search of a cool little bag to complement this look and I stumbled upon the Keechii Bags! The creative designer and owner behind the brand, Marcia Spencer, believes that a bag should be an extension of personal style and confidence. That is just the way I feel about this Yin Yang clutch. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it.
For this look, I wanted to wear the bag sleek and straight, but of course, you can fold it over for a more relaxed feel.

Every year, I stage a photo shoot to celebrate my son’s birthday. I try and attempt to capture the love between a mother and son through photographs as it continues developing each year. The photo shoots are always themed towards his party and this year’s was “A Tribal Camping” birthday party! Year after year, I find myself overwhelmed with pride at the blooming soul that shines through my son in the photos. If you you look back through these photo shoots, you will see a little boy who’s smiles come easy and he spreads them around graciously making the world a bit better with each one.
Do you have a special birthday photo shoot tradition?
