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.

Favorite Cardigans

| Cardigan: Express | V Neck: Motherhood maternity | Jeans: Zara

It's no secret that I'm an avid Express shopper, probably over half of my closet is from there. I love their prices, quality, and fit. They also always have great sales going on all the time, and not to mention the rewards! You accumulate them so fast it makes it so worth it. I recently purchased a sweater and jacket and ended up paying only $5!!! They're my go to store for all my cardis and sweaters. I picked this one up for Spring, I really needed a neutral cover up that was good for cold weather. I got the size small and feel like it's still a bit oversized so definitely size down! Also wanted to round up some of my current favorite picks from their site.

Winter in LA

You guys, I'm so over this weather. Living in SoCal has made us so spoiled, where we can't handle the temps dropping below 60 degrees, much less rain. Shooting pictures has been such a fail. We even tried to shoot the gender reveal this past weekend, when it randomly started pouring, and this was after I had checked the weather app and it said it wasn't going to rain. It just makes it so hard to function and I'm more than ready for it to go back to being Sunny all year round. I've been wearing all my cozy knits and booties nonstop. I always like to stock up after Christmas because that's when the best sales are! Sweaters also never really go out of style so I love being able to add on to my collection even with the growing bump. I usually size up for an oversized fit and that's been working great with the belly.

DHC Super Long Mascara EX

Hi guys! If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw my post about this new mascara I got the chance to try. But for those of you that don't I didn't want you to miss out on this AMAZING product so decided to share it on the blog as well.
So I got to try the new DHC mascara and it has seriously become a game changer in my makeup routine! My lashes have never looked longer and fuller. Other mascaras have thinned my eyelashes, but the new Super Long Mascara EX even has a nourishing complex of vitamin E, algae-derived extract and silk protein that help fortify your lashes.

These are my lashes before/after trying the new DHC Super Long Mascara EX! It makes such a difference, and I really love that it added length and volume without feeling heavy and looking clumpy. 

I use this Eye & Lip Makeup Remover and Silky Cotton pads to gently remove my eye makeup before bed. The makeup remover is made with coconut oil to moisturize, and the squares are made from 100% cotton wrapped in a silk blend and won't snag on your lashes or brows. It was really easy to get all the mascara off and not one of my lashes were damaged in the process. You can buy them (here).

The mascara is water resistant and lengthens the lashes by combining three lengths of fiber for a high-impact look. The curved brush makes it easy to apply with precision while adding a gentle curl. You can purchase it  (here).

Thank you to DHC for sponsoring  today's post! All opinions are my own.

Striped tie front top

Happy Friday and first of the month! I swear it felt like January lasted forever, I kept feeling like I had to play catch up and couldn't wait for it to be over. I love the thought of a new month and new goals to be set. I want to focus on posting a couple more times a week which means creating more content on my free time. The blog has been getting an awesome response this past month and I wanted to thank everyone that still visits every day even though I don't get to update it daily, it truly means the world! I finally feel like I'm getting to dive back into it and it's such a great feeling. I have so many fun collabs in the works and can't wait to share with you all. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks again for stopping by.

Graphic Band Tee

Loving graphic tees lately, they're so easy to throw on and make any outfit look "edgy" although of I'm being completely honest, I'm such a poser considering I've never actually listened to any band. 🙈 But they're still super cute and I wanted to share this one that is currently 60% off making it only $9!!! Rounding up a couple other favorites on sale at the moment.

Olive Moto Jacket and transitioning into Maternity Jeans

 Jacket: Vici Dolls | Jeans: here

It's safe to say my latest obsession is jackets. With sooo many sales going on, it makes you wanna snag every item that's 50% off. This faux suede jacket is super soft and lightweight, making it ideal for our "winter" weather in SoCal. I paired it with these skinnies, that just so happen to be maternity, can't even tell right? My whole pregnancy with Sebastian I refused, I used to think "pregnant lady clothes" were for older ladies and just not cute, so I practically only wore dresses and would go 1 size up or stick to my normal size if they were stretchy. It was easy because I was pregnant over summer and no one wants to wear jeans during that time of year anyways. This pregnancy, I noticed myself not fitting into my jeans way earlier, I'm talking 16 weeks early. I was at work one day and when I went to the bathroom to pull my pants down I saw the concealed hook hanging and the fabric had ripped. That night I went online and ordered maternity jeans, pants, shirts and leggings. To my surprise everything I found was super cute and on trend. I literally want to wear these jeans even after the baby comes, I just love the cut and color they're exactly what I've been looking for before I even got pregnant. What I also really liked is that they only have the side panel technically making them wearable post baby until I can fit into my old jeans again.
