Okay, because we’re all friends here, I’m going to be super real and tell you I have zero authority on this subject. (Insert laughing/crying emoji here.) But seriously, I snack more than I should and working out and staying active has been a challenge for me since week 8 of my pregnancy.
Things started off great, and I thought, This isn’t so bad! during the first few weeks of my pregnancy. I continued to go to hot yoga and felt pretty great about my activity level and the healthy foods I was eating.
Then the first trimester exhaustion kicked in. Then my appetite changed. I thought things would improve in my second trimester, but my energy didn’t come back the way I had hoped. I was able to increase my activity, but still not to the starry-eyed level of active I had imagined. Read More →
It’s crazy how quickly the weather has changed in Michigan. It feels like fall this week- I was cold at Mathew’s softball game last night! Summer lovers might be mad about it, but I’m not. Maybe you’re sick of hearing me say so, but I’m ready for fall.
I thought I’d share a little more about why I love this season so that maybe you’ll be okay with me being so okay with the change in weather. 😉 And, if you’re one of those summer lovers, please know I fully acknowledge there are still a few official weeks left of summer. Read More →

Happy Friday! I’m channeling fall with today’s look. How fun is this zippered tunic? It comes in another color too, but I love this wine/burgundy color for fall. Can you tell I’m ready for sweater weather yet? Did you catch Monday’s post about transitioning your summer dresses for fall? Yeah, I’m ready. It can be fall any day now. Bring on the pumpkin spice. Sorry, summer lovers.
I also wanted to share a second trimester update because I’m officially in my third trimester now! Whaaat? It’s going by so quickly!
I will be the first to admit that I used to do a much better job of balancing work wardrobe pieces and casual outfits on the blog. Since January, I’ve been at a job that has a much less strict wardrobe policy, and I’ve been able to wear denim to work. It’s been nice not to have to purchase an entire maternity wardrobe of professional clothing, but I’ve definitely needed some new pieces for the office.
I’ve pulled some work appropriate maternity styles to offer a little bit of inspiration for the office if you find yourself struggling. Read More →
