Next year for Halloween, I want to dress up like her.

Or perhaps a Fairy Godmother.
Would be totally awesome. Both paintings are by Janet Hill. And just for fun, this is my most favorite painting of hers. She just looks so exasperated by him, doesn’t she?

I just ordered this long sleeve swing dress. Because you can’t have enough swing dresses. Or black dresses. Oh, and it’s only $44 and comes in a couple different colors. But I posted it on my facebook page last night and now there aren’t many left. Sorry about that.

And I’m lovin’ all over these cobalt and black color block pumps too. Aren’t they just divine?

So I try not to re-blog many of my instagrams because I figure most of you see them since they’re right there on the sidebar, but I had questions about my shirt I’m wearing. It’s this Cynthia Rowley top. Feels like a sweatshirt, can be worn so many ways. I’m obsessed.

And while we’re re-sharing instagrams, did you catch my Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley High collections? I was a total book nerd. I grew up in the country, there weren’t many kids around to play with after school… I got hooked. Would often read a book in a day. 
Nothing tops Sweet Valley High (maybe S&TC). I know you read it too. Were you a Jessica or an Elizabeth? I’ll give you one guess on which I was… and it wasn’t Elizabeth ;)
Have a happy and safe Halloween!! And much love out to those affected by Hurrican Sandy. The news is just devastating. Hits home for us here in Charleston since we’re on the coast. Be careful!

So I sent Josh and Lilly to Target last night for a few things. Considering that I ended up staying home making a bacon and mayonnaise sandwich and consequently eating a bunch of Halloween candy that Josh brought home, it wasn’t my best decision. But the real regret is that I’m now seeing that Target just launched this gorgeous Boho Boutique. I’m loving this inexpensive collection, and it’s huge!

I especially love the pillows, drapes, and shower curtains. What do you think?
I take it all back. Apparently the Boho Boutique is only available online. How could I ever regret a bacon sandwich? Well alright, I guess there are reasons…

On a much more important note, I hope all of my Hurricane Sandy friends (and family/friends of y’all) are safe and sound. I read on twitter that the NYU Hospital staff had to evacuate everyone and did so smoothly. Major props to the NICU nurses who took babies down 9 flights of dark stairs. Incredible. If I could I’d come bring you all bacon sandwiches too.

I hesitate to title this post “Maternity Style” and pigeon hole it only for baby bumps. You’ll see, my friend Marysia Reeves of Marysia Swim just has crazy good style. I asked her to show us how she’s dressing her 24 week bump… If you ask me, she dresses it perfectly.

And for the record, only 1 item here (her jeans worn in the last outfit) is maternity. So this post is for all y’alls :)

Isn’t she the cutest?? Makes it look so effortless and awesome. I miss my friend now that she’s in NYC, but it’s fun to visit her there. And if you follow me on instagram then you saw that she’s here in Charleston right now escaping Hurricane Sandy. Here’s hoping for little damage.
Okay, so I’ll have more of Marysia later this week. Her latest Marysia Swim collection just hit her website. If you can’t wait to see it you can check it out here. Thanks, Marysia, for showing us some tips on how to stay so cute during pregnancy (and before and after). 
Also, a very large thank you to the amazing LINDSEYBELLE Photography. Lindsey, you have once again nailed a gorgeous photo shoot. Thanks for taking these pictures of Marysia for us.
PS, while I recommend trying to find non-maternity clothing and just going up in size, I do have a couple of favorite maternity spots to shop when maternity is needed: Asos Maternity, Shopbop’s Maternity, and Gap Maternity. And I think that every pregnant momma needs a pair of maternity spanx. I swore by them during both of my pregnancies.
