my favorite workout wear throughout this pregnancy!
I've always loved stripes, but certain striped patterns I didn't wear, because they did tend to make me look larger than I was (some sort of optical illusion, I'm sure!)
you know LBD? little black dress. the black dress that fits like a glove and goes with every occasion - formal, casual, and everything in between.
every woman needs to own a LBD (or 20), and that means that every pregnant woman needs a maternity LBD, or, as we'll call it - LBMD!
The nursery reveal!
after 17+ years of bra-shopping, I've finally found the three bras that flatter, fit, and support my large bust. and now, being pregnant and having even a bigger bust, these bras are still standing the test.

I can't decide when is the best time to be pregnant. since I've only been pregnant once, I only know what I'm experiencing right now. HOTNESS.
lauren conrad has launched a new maternity line at KOHL'S and everything is so adorable - and flattering!
I've followed LC over the years (I actually never watched The Hills) as she's built her empire. it's super inspiring and I love her aesthetic. she's also total #preggogoals (I mean, hello?)
I plan on breastfeeding once the baby arrives. of course, I'm aware that it doesn't happen as easily as we'd like it to happen, so I'm prepared for whatever situation necessary - pumping or breast-feeding, a combo, or whatever. regardless, I'm going into this hoping I'll be breastfeeding!
I was recently reading a baby book that said pregnant women tend to store extra fat in their thighs as a way to preserve essential fats for when your body is ready to breastfeed. while that's awesome, I'm not really enjoying the extra pudge around my inner thighs! and I'm a girl who does a LOT of squats, lunges, and other leg-defining moves.
