Boater Hats and my thoughts on Maternity Jeans

I  mentioned a couple posts ago how I got a ton of new things from Asos. This sun top was another favorite of mine and it's currently 25% off. I also ordered this boater hat that I've been wanting for a while now, I just always thought my forehead was too big for them lol. But as soon as I tried it on I really loved it! I can't wait to wear it all Summer, I also got a matching one for baby girl. Now let me get into what I've really been wanting to talk about: Maternity Jeans. When I was pregnant with Sebastian it was summer so I wore nothing but dresses. This pregnancy happened during colder months and I gave in and spent over $200 on maternity jeans. I really just wanted to find a cute pair that I'd feel comfortable in to wear every day. When my bump was just starting to show at about 20 weeks, it wasn't a big deal. The only problem I did have was that the pairs I got with a side panel kept  riding down and looked saggy. As my bump got bigger, I sized up, but kept having the same issue. The ones I got with a belly waistband were a little more comfortable but again, didn't feel comfortable like a stretchy pair of skinny jeans. I searched up and down everywhere, ordered designer maternity jeans, thinking that quality may have been way better but had no luck. As I was getting ready to leave to Vegas for my sister's 21st, I was on the hunt for a pair of simple black destroyed skinnies, I ended up reading the reviews for the rockstar jeggings from Old Navy and went in store so I could try them on. And guess what, they worked!! I just had to go up 2 sizes but I absolutely love them and the fit and quality. I can't believe I had never tried their jeans, I'm for sure getting another pair post pregnancy. They're super stretchy and don't make my butt look saggy. My final verdict, don't spend your money on maternity jeans, it's so unnecessary, rockstar jeggings are the best thing everrrrr.  Maternity leggings on the other hand, have been my best friend. I got 3 pairs and as soon as they come out the dryer, I wear them in constant rotation.

Striped Button Dress

Dress: Forever 21 | Bag: Gucci | Shoes: Steve Madden

I feel like I've been pregnant forever and am now running out of time and lacking the energy to get everything done. I wish I was one of those people that had their hospital bag packed weeks in advance but nope, I'm most likely going to end up waiting until I get contractions and start packing then lol. I wore this dress on Sunday, it's non-maternity and I just had to size up to make it work with the bump. It's unfortunately sold out but I was able to find similar picks.

Matching with my Mini

I love doing mommy and me outfits with Sebastian but it's sometimes so hard to find matching looks. I got his little cotton blazer first and spent months looking for one for myself and had no luck until I was randomly browsing forever 21 and found this one on clearance for only $9!! I'm always a little hesitant when ordering online especially if it's a final sale item because you don't know how it's going to fit/ the overall quality, but I really liked it when it came in. It's super soft and comfy, just what I had been looking for. It's unfortunately sold out but I was able to find a similar one.

Mink Lace Wrap Dress

This dress is my favorite I've worn thus far. The purple mauve tone just screams Spring. It's perfect if you have a wedding to go to or even your baby shower. I had such a hard time finding nice maternity dresses that didn't look like the mother of the bride. But Asos has some really nice pieces, I can't wait to show you guys everything I got.

Pregnancy Update

You know those people that make being pregnant look soo easy? Yeah well that's definitely NOT me. I've had such a tough pregnancy this time around dealing with excruciating back and pelvic pain, I'm not exaggerating when I say it's hard and painful for me to get out of bed, much less walk. My yoga ball has become my best friend and it's the only thing that makes the pain go away for the time being. I'm going on 37 weeks tomorrow and I really want to push through it and document as much as possible these last couple of weeks, aiming to update the blog every day. We've shot a couple of looks here and there that I'm so excited to share with you guys. These pictures were taken when I was around 30 weeks so I'm much bigger now lol. But I've come to love Free People dresses. They've accommodated my growing bump so well without needing to size up.

It's a GIRL!!!!

We're having a baby girl!!!! You guys, this post has been a long time coming. I first found out the gender at 17 weeks, before I even announced my pregnancy. It was right before Christmas, and I remember going to the mall with my mom. We were at Zara, and she picked out the cutest little pink eyelet top for the baby. She bought it and I asked her how she could be so sure, she just said she knew, moms sense these kinda things.  From the moment I found out I was pregnant both her and my husband were like "it's a girl." I had a feeling too since this pregnancy has been so different from Sebastian's. That day I had a doctor's appointment, and right after seeing the ultrasound I had the urge to know for sure. I called my mom and we headed back to the mall, where they perform the 4D ultrasounds. The tech told us it was indeed a baby girl. That was the first time Sebastian saw her, and he was all excited. I swear she even waved at us lol. We called everyone, and celebrated with pizza and movies afterwards. I didn't opt for a gender reveal because I don't like surprises, and I love the idea of sharing these intimate, precious moments with my family.
At my 20 week scan, the doctor confirmed the gender and that's when I was fully convinced. At the end of the day, we just care for a healthy baby, but the fact that we have our boy and pretty soon our little girl is just so amazing. Irven even bought her her first little tutu and bow, needless to say he's thrilled haha. I can't wait to see how Sebastian will be to her, although the thought of him being a big brother is still so surreal.

Mexicali Dress

Happy Saturday! If there's one thing I love it's flowy fun dresses. They take no effort to put together and  I always go for them when I can't think of anything to wear. I wore this dress out to lunch with my mom and Sebastian last week. We came across the cutest little cafe in Long Beach called "Vibes," definitely recommend if you live in the area!  While shopping for clothes lately, I mostly look for pieces that can work even after the baby is born.
