Can you believe it? We are officially moved in and 99% unpacked!!! It’s a miracle! Seriously. Moving is no joke, add not having a place to be settled in, add having two kids, add everyone being sick at one moment during that time period equals extreme exhaustion and stress…to the max! But sigh…we are in! We are totally obsessed with our home and hopefully I’ll be able to share it with you soon. I was able to truly add touches that make it a home that works for our family such as a special shoe closet (no shoes enter any…

This dress is pretty much the most “Princess Martha” dress I own. It’s classic but chic, it’s detailed but simple, it twirls beautifully yet it can be taken seriously. I love love love this dress. My most favorite thing, it’s cotton with just a little hint of stretch. I know, who knew something so “basic” could make me feel so luxe but honestly, there is something so fabulous about authentic fabrics. Silks, cottons, linens…they all hold special places in my heart and in my closet. I wore this dress for our annual family photo shoot (see that post here) and…

I’d be lying if I said I don’t miss my high heels. I do. I miss them very much. Sometimes I create scenarios in my head and pretend that I’ll be going somewhere that requires me to be in heels…so I’ll get dressed for my everyday errands/life and put on some heels.

Most are super short and sexy but I prefer a little longer and more consevative/classic. This romper from Banana Republic was the perfect blend of what I wanted. Length, both in torso and in legs, and classic ruffle detailing.

Everything body wise changes when you’re pregnant…from your hair to your nails to your thighs to your breasts, even your feet. Except for mine. Everyone always told me that my feet would change sizes after my first pregnancy…that (gasp!) they would be bigger and I would have to say goodbye to my old heels. Well, thank the shoe Gods, it didn’t happen to me and during this pregnancy, I’m happy to report that the one constant thing is my shoe size. I’m still (comfortably) a size 38. So when I saw these Kate Spade heels marked wayyyyyyyy down on Saks.com…
