Mailer Overalls c/o Camp Collection // Boots c/o Madewell

Totally loving these overalls by the CAMP collection.  They even fit my 18 week bump, and i’ve always been a fan of a bump in overalls :)

So this weekend was kind of the best.  Saturday I got to sneak away on a ‘mom’s retreat’ to the spa for some pampering and relaxation with 20 of the coolest girls.  No husbands, no kids, no responsibilities other than fully embracing our independence for the day.  It. was. amazing.  If you know me, you know I am not a spa girl.  Mostly because we are cheap (frugal might be nicer way of describing it), but also because I usually prefer to treat myself in other ways.  But I really loved every minute of it.  Connecting with other women on life, motherhood, struggles, dreams, balance, potty training, terrible two’s….and mostly,  just laughing a whole lot.  I got my second pedicure of my life, and my skin got it’s first shade of pink for the season.  Out of the twenty women, I think more than half of us were pregnant.  So we were really a site to be seen at the pool.  I kept giggling just imagining what everyone else thought of us.  I left dinner wondering why we don’t do something like this every month!  I also left feeling really thankful that I had a wonderful husband and a sweet little girl to come home to.  While getting away was so refreshing, at the end of the night I was excited to get back to the people who make my world go round.

Flynn Skye has recently become one of my favorite designers for her effortlessly cool LIVABLE pieces.  Emphasizing livable because they are all so comfy and easy to throw on, made with beautiful fabrics and prints.  I own a few of her rompers and dresses, and they are some of my favorite go-to pieces (perfect for summer).  Flynn Skye was named after her free spirited daughter who helps inspire her collection each season.

17 weeks and I kind of look pregnant.  Not according to any of my friends who all still laugh at the size of my belly.  But I’m getting there.  And definitely FEELING pregnant.  I got to feel the baby move for the first time this week.  I remembered those little goldfish flutters all too well.  I think it’s my very favorite part of pregnancy, feeling the baby move inside of me.  It’s pretty incredible actually, when I think about the way new life is created.  What a miracle it is….all of it.  I feel so blessed to be able to do this all over again, knowing full well what I will be gaining in the end.  It makes all the sickness and aches and pains along the way worth it.

My friend Jen owns NENE Bags.  I call her my friend, but really, we’ve never met.  I’ve just followed her forever on instagram and I feel like she’s my friend (you know how it is).   She’s cool and a mom and makes me want to have boys in the worst way ;)  But on top of that, she owns her own business and makes some pretty rad bags and clutches.  This one I have is a limited edition design she made out of vintage Levi’s denim jeans and I love it.

Lastly, here’s a cute spring shoe roundup from Seychelles.  I’ve always loved their ankle boots, but I’ve been eyeing some of their new sandals for summer!

Ace & Jig Play Dress via Lone Flag  // Madewell boots (similar) // UO hat – (similar)

Sometimes, all you need is a good dress to make an outfit.  Don’t you love when you can just throw on a hat and a dress and feel ‘put together’?!  It’s always my go-to look when I’m in a hurry.   Ace & Jig is still one of my favorite brands and lucky for me, Sam carries the line at his shop.  I know I won’t be able to wear this dress much longer into my pregnancy, so I am getting as much use out of it now as I can.  It’s perfect for Spring!

p.s – Happy April.  Go prank someone today ;)
