Y’all I don’t know how some pregnant women do it when it comes to dressing up and wearing heels. I am struggling over here because I do not want to participate at all lol. Its like I crave comfortable clothing like I do food. So weird right? I was the same with Camille. At the time I was working, so I had to look a little put together Monday thru Friday. So what they got from me were some V-neck Target tees and my maternity pants, along with a wedge or a flat. Lol, since I am not working, I can currently be seen in something comfortable like yoga pants and a sweatshirt. Which is why I am so thrilled that athleisure wear is considered stylish and on trend. Praise the Lord!

 

However, I was still struggling on where to find cute loungewear or sweatsuit sets. One of my blogger boos and friend, Shana, from Brown Girl Stylish suggested I head to TJ Maxx because they had some great athleisure/ lounge wear options. You guys, TJ Maxx and I use to be besties years ago. I was a regular and the layaway was my jam lol. For some reason, I stopped going and let me tell you, I need to add it back to my rotation on where to shop. I found lots of cute athleisure sets, including the one I’m wearing in this pic! This outfit is NOT maternity, but has good stretch and room for me to grow a bit. I can be cute and prego in this set and I’m here for it!

 

Not only do I crave comfy clothes, but comfy shoes too! I popped over to DSW after I got this set and they had sooooo many cute sneakers. I am not a sneaker girl at all, but honey I had about six pairs I loved that I was trying to narrow down. But, I fell in love with these Nike’s as they are SOOOOOO comfortable and the blush pink was calling my name. It definitely helped that I had a coupon to knock off a couple of bucks too. Don’t you love when that happens?!

 

 

Is athleisure wear on your radar when you’re shopping??

I definitely plan to buy a few more pieces to help me along the rest of this pregnancy. Especially if it has me out in these streets looking like I have my life together! Athleisure wear is not just for working out or heading to the gym. Its all about comfortable clothes that can translate from gym to every day activities. I linked a few options I found online. But, if you love what I’m wearing, head to your nearest TJ Maxx and take a look!

You guys, I am so excited (and relieved) to finally share with you the gender reveal of our little blessing!! These past few weeks have been rough. Pregnancy is wearing me down and honestly, I just didn’t have the will to plan anything elaborate with this gender reveal. I had the flu over a week ago and it really wore me out. This past week I am trying to return back to normal and get back in the swing of things. Including blogging! But hey, sometimes we just have to take time out and get our mind and bodies, Amen?!

 

Anyhoo, I found out the gender of our baby on my birthday, January 15th!! My husband, Eric, was a bundle of nerves as he really wanted a boy. He kind of wanted to be surprised this go around with the gender reveal, but my planner brain will just not allow me to be so spontaneous. I admire those who can go the full nine months without finding out the gender. But, not this girl! I really was hoping for another girl this time around. I mean I have tons of Camille’s clothes from when she was a baby. We barely gotten rid of any of her baby clothes because I wanted baby #2 to wear them again. Not just for convenience, but I simply adored them and wanted to see them on my little one, one more time!

 

As you can see from the pictures, God has blessed us with a little boy!!! You guys, I have no clue how I am meant to be a boy mom. Everything about me is so girly, I just can’t imagine a little rough and tough little boy. But, I am so excited to meet him and hold him in my arms for the first time. Like I said, Eric really desired a son. Even though I wanted another girl, I am glad that he is getting the son he always wanted. I know he wants to raise a strong, intelligent man and continue the Green name. So yes, we have one of each! Its so crazy, I am still pinching myself that I am even pregnant with number two and that its a boy! 2017 was such a tough year for us, but 2018 is already starting off great!

 

Do we have a name picked out?

We are still deciding on a name and have it narrowed down to 3. I won’t even bother telling you now the name choices, because it took us forever with nailing down Camille’s name lol. So keep us lifted on figuring his name out! Camille does feel strongly about one name so it seems like we are leaning towards that direction. We shall see!

Well you guys, the time has come! I have to give up my Shoe Room with baby #2 on the way. Camille is going to move into my shoe room and baby #2 will take Camille’s nursery. I knew when I designed my shoe room that this was going to happen once we were pregnant again. I’ve had the shoe room for a little over 3 years now. It was a nice run, but its time!

 

While I am a little sad about this, I am actually ok with having to make this transition. We plan to move some of the things from my shoe room to the guest bedroom. It will basically be a shoe room/guest bedroom. In order to make this happen, I have to downsize and get rid of a lot of stuff. I don’t know if its nesting kicking in, but I am so ready to downsize and let go of a lot of my shoes. Honestly, I haven’t worn many of them in years. So its just taking up precious space and its time for it to go.

 

One of my followers suggested I sell my shoes on Poshmark, so I created an account. There are over 40 pairs of shoes are listed there! I wanted to share with you all my Postmark closet so you can take a look and shop my closet. My shoe size is a  6.5/7 and I will also be listing handbags, Camille’s old clothes and shoes and whatever else I decide to sell. So stay tuned and be sure to follow me there! I rather these things go to someone else who will wear and enjoy them, rather then sitting on my shelf. It got a little emotional going thru Camille’s old baby clothes. Time has flown so quickly. My little tiny baby is now a fiery, sweet little 3 year old. Pass me a tissue please!

What is Poshmark?

Poshmark is a great online platform used to buy and sell clothing/shoe etc items online. Its super easy to set up and get started rather you are buying or selling. So here is the link to my Poshmark closet (CLICK HERE)!  Take a look around and see what you like! I am willing to negotiate prices, so don’t be afraid to ask!

 

Do you need to do a closet clean out? Let me tell you, I am so excited to let go of some of these things and just keep what I truly love and use. After this closet clean out, it will be time to get started on redoing Camille’s room! Let me know if you want me to share that process with you too if you’re interested!

Ohhh girl, let me tell you. The struggle has been REAL trying to be comfortable in my clothes over the past few weeks. Since this is my second pregnancy, I am showing a lot faster than I did with Camille. I’m only 16 weeks and I don’t think I was this size with Camille until I was about 20 weeks. Therefore, I had to find some comfy bottoms to work into my wardrobe. I think there is a limitation as to when one should have on sweats or track pants seven days a week as a wardrobe option lol. I’m just saying!

 

I had some old maternity jeans that I kept from my last pregnancy. When I tried them on,  the jeans offered little relief, the fit was not flattering AT ALL and they lacked style. They were bootcut, no distressing and my butt looked less than impressive lol.  Y’all know I love distressed, ripped jeans and really wanted a pair this go around to work into my wardrobe. Thank goodness PinkBlush has a few options in various colors that fit perfectly and still allows me to be all stylish and what not.

 

Listen, when I got these in the mail and put them on, I literally exhaled. Lol, they are so comfy, my butt looks good in them and the distressing on them is perfection. I can’t wait to order a few other colors such as grey and black. Now I have a pair of go to jeans that I can go from running errands with Camille to date night! I enjoyed pairing it with my faux fur jacket and booties. It was nice to look stylish the day we shot this look … never mind that I’ve been in pjs or sweat pants all weekend long lol.

 

PinkBlush also offers NON-MATERNITY options. So if you aren’t preggers, you do not need to feel left out. Definitely check out their regular clothing line for great, affordable pieces as well. There is something for everyone!

Hello Loves!

 

I am so excited to share this great news! We are expecting our little bundle of joy in June!! I cannot be more excited to share with my readers that I am pregnant. Y’all it has been so hard trying to keep a secret and camouflage this belly. I am so relieved that I can now spill the beans and share with you such an exciting moment in our lives. We have been planning to grow our family by one more and it finally happened! Sometimes we wonder if God hears our prayers and the answer is yes, yes HE DOES!

 

2017 was such a hard year for my family. We went through a lot! When I looked back over the year, it just seemed like things weren’t going the way we planned. After multiple UNEXPECTED home repairs, trying to get pregnant, my husband and I both having to get new cars a week a part from each other, my dog getting hit by a car and passing away and lastly, the unexpected loss of my mother-in-law in September, 2017 has not been the kindest to us. It was where you kind of questioned if God was taking you through something, to teach you a few lessons? And if so, when was this period of trials and tribulations gonna end? Lol. It was just a tough time. Apparently God had a plan!

 

Just as we least expected it, I found out I was pregnant in October. Let me tell you, when I took the test I just knew it couldn’t be. I waited a few extra days before taking the test because I just didn’t think it was so. Also, its nothing like a wasted pregnancy test. Them babies aren’t cheap! Lol.  But, there it was! As soon as I saw that positive, I just heard God say this is the light at the end of the tunnel. I couldn’t wait to tell Eric. The timing was perfect,  I gave him the best surprise on his birthday! He couldn’t have been happier.

 

I am not one to share with everyone as soon as I find out that I am pregnant.  The first trimester is such a critical time, so we kept the surprise from family and friends until I was 13 weeks. It was such a relief and so fun to reveal to the family we were expecting on Christmas Eve. And now, I am finally sharing this with you! I am 16 weeks pregnant and if you want to know how I’ve been feeling…. sick and tired. Literally sick and tired!

 

How will this change the blog now that I am pregnant?

I plan to continue blogging as usual. But, it has been a little hard not feeling at 100 percent. Also, I feel like I have nothing to wear or nothing that I am excited to wear lol. Maybe its just a mood that I am in. I’ll probably be rocking more sporty looks, because all I want, is super comfy clothes that I don’t have to tug on or adjust all day long. But, I am sure you all would like to see some maternity fashion as well, so I am gonna do my best to share maternity and non maternity looks. I can’t make any promises though, with Camille all I wore was Target t-shirts and maternity pants lol. I’ve got to do better this last go around!

 

And we just found out today what we are having. I am keeping that a secret until I figure out how I want to reveal the news. I am claiming 2018 to be GREAT and so should you!!

Bell Sleeve Velvet Wrap Top $18!

Layered Tassel Earrings $13

 

This velvet top screams Valentine’s Day to me! Its so pretty, soft and gives off the right amount of sexy and romantic vibes I must say. Especially with the off shoulder and pretty velvet texture. I had to share this velvet top with you all so you can grab it now. Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it. So lets go ahead and get some Valentine’s Day outfit ideas in mind shall we?

 

I’ve fallen prey to the velvet trend and simply cant get enough. Its something about a super soft fabric such as velvet that makes it so soft, luxurious and even comfortable. I think this top is also perfect for Galentine’s Day if you are celebrating with your girls too. For $18, you just need to grab this top  ASAP! You never know when you’ll need it, hey better safe then sorry right?!

 

I just wanted to pop in for a quick post to let you all know about this top. Are you following me on Instagram? If so, you should! You definitely want to be “in the know,” regarding all of my content that I don’t always share on the blog!

 

I linked a few other velvet options for you below! Is the velvet trend one you love too?

Happy New Year!

 

You’ve probably seen this color block coat around for a while now. I surely have! But, I saw it pop up on my Instagram feed not too long ago and here we are. I now own one! And its a keeper! You guys know my love for coats, so this truly is no surprise to you that I have, yet another one. I really like how I can wear head to toe black and look like I did something to myself with this coat on. Because lets face it, thats kind of what I had on underneath this coat in these pics. And well, its a look! lol.

 

This color block coat has been around for some years now. Just about every blogger I follow had one when it first came out. So naturally, I didn’t want to participate in getting something EVERYBODY and they mama was wearing. Now that its popularity has died down some, I decided I would go ahead and get in on the action. Are you like that too? When everybody is wearing it, you want no parts of it. But, once the craze is over, you’re here for it?! Well, thats me! I don’t believe anything really goes out of style. Not if you take it and make it work for you. If you want to wear a darn skant (the skirt over pants craze in the 90s) and you can make it look GOOD in 2018?! Girl! That simply tells me you have true style and make things work for you, not everyone else!

 

Happy New Year!

I wish I had a New Year Eve “word” for you today, but it hasn’t hit me yet. I’m gonna take some more time over the next few days to figure out what is on my heart and mind to deliver it to you. Sometimes I have a motivational or from the heart blog post for you guys and sometimes I don’t. But, life is like that you know. I rather share whats really on my heart then fake it for you. Understand?! Good!

 

Chat with you soon!

Hey Loves!

Let me fill you in on something. I LOVE coats! I really do! Outerwear is one of my top clothing pieces that I love to wear. Even though I live in Texas, it does get cold enough to have a nice coat on hand for those Winter days where a little jacket just won’t do. I really love coats with a nice print, such as this plaid coat that I got recently from Shein! When I saw this beauty in the black and white, I just HAD to have it!

 

It was super cold the day we shot this look, about 40 degrees that morning. I will say, this is NOT a heavy coat. Its more like a heavy weight duster or cardigan. So you must make sure to dress warm underneath. I don’t want you to think that all you need is this coat and you’ll be warm. I would say its perfect for 50-60 degree weather if you wear light clothing underneath. Nevertheless, its very comfy and stylish plaid coat that hangs beautifully. I loved pairing this plaid coat with orange/red booties to add some color to this simple look.

 

How was your Christmas?

I hope you all had a very, Merry Christmas. It was great to spend time with family, see Camille open her Christmas presents and eat all the good food. To tell you the truth, my favorite moment on Christmas is after the last guests have left, you change into pajamas and fix that second or third plate and have dessert lol. Its nothing like popping off that bra and getting into those comfy clothes and being able to fully relax. Am I right?

I don’t know about you but Christmas snuck up on me this year! Before I knew it, it was time for the craziness of taking Christmas pictures, school events, Christmas dinners, shopping and oh yes, Christmas cards! Christmas cards is something that I always wait until the last minute. Sometimes, I don’t even get them out at all. But, Shutterfly came to the rescue! I used Tinyprints last year, which is now obtained by Shutterfly. So still same great personalization options, customer service and even provide rush orders. Whew, because thats what I had to do this go around for sure.

 

Shutterfly is super easy to use as well. All you do is select what card type you love, upload your pics and use the customization options of your choice to make your cards extra special. You can select if you want a colored envelope and customize the envelopes as well. Envelope liners can be added too to jazz up a plain envelope. My favorite feature is that I can input the addresses to everyone on my list and have them printed on the envelope! OMG, it saves soooo much time to have the addresses already printed on the envelope. I literally just added the liners, stuffed them and sealed them closed. Game changer!

 

Christmas is basically over, but if you want to start the New Year off with a bang, you can send out Happy New Year cards! I think its a great way to start the new year sharing with your friends and family a positive wish. You can also shop Shutterfly for Birthday Party invites, Wedding invitations, Announcements and more.

Ok so let me start off by saying this Zara sequin sleeve jacket is no longer available. I purchased it at Zara’s last sale which was during the summer. Its one of those jackets that you know will cause attention. You will get compliments all day long from fashionistas alike! I wore this to brunch before the shoot and couldn’t take it off, I loved it so much. So before I posted this jacket, I made sure to go to google and search to find similar sequin sleeve jackets like mine. Fortunately I found a few! So don’t be too mad at me, ok?!

 

I’m a sucker for army green, especially in a jacket. It compliments my skin tone and I am all for it! So I typically always reach for one when I am out shopping. But, what I liked about this one, was that it was not the same as my other 3 olive green jackets lol. This sequin sleeve jacket makes such a statement and uplifts a plain outfit. I mean all I am rocking is my “Boss So Hard” tee (get you one y’all!) and some ripped jeans. You can easily see how this jacket transforms this simple outfit and makes it stand out.

 

I know I’ve been MIA lately. But, the holiday season has me so busy with preparing for guests, shopping for gifts and trying to get everything in order. But, I do have some looks for you guys coming up soon. So stay tuned!!
