Living in Small Spaces: Work Nook

I have officially been evicted – my office turned into babygirl’s nursery but I still needed a place to really sit down and work that wasn’t my dining room table or my couch! So I moved all my supplies to under our floating staircase and GUYS I’M IN LOVE!

We live in a condo in Philadelphia so literally every square foot counts and my desk just happened to fit perfectly under the stairs. I love that I can still see everything else going on in my house while I’m working and bonus points because I’m right next to the coffee machine so refills are endless :).

Anyway, sharing all my favorite office supplies and desk details at the links below! PS – a lot of them are on sale including the desk, chair AND pillows so run, don’t walk.

Just two months or less until we get to meet our sweet babygirl and hubs and I are both equally excited + freaking out 🙂

Sharing a sneak peek of the nursery AND the dress I’ve been legit living in since I found it I was pregnant because it’s non-maternity but still stretches with your growing bump. The better news: it’s part of the Nordstrom sales AND comes in 10 different colors. It’s true to size, although if you are a mama-to-be I suggest going up a size!

Travel OOTD

When it rains, it pours and guys it’s been raining here on the east coast for 48 hours straight. Combine that with travel and you have the perfect reason to dress in your comfiest of all comfies. Below is my go-to. I own these pieces in multiple colors – they are my pregnancy staples. Shop at the links below!

Life Lately

Long time, no talk am right?! Life lately has been absolutely insane.

For the most part I have been VVV busy growing a mini human (insert all the happy tears here). We can’t wait to welcome out babygirl into the fam come early August! While we are 1000839480 times over the moon excited – nobody told me pregnancy was going to be this hard. Let me get real here for a minute: growing a baby is not all cute bump pics and baby kicks it’s more like a lot of weird pains, watching your body transform into something you don’t recognize, trying to explain what you’re feeling to your husband who tries so hard to understand but just never will (it’s kinda cute) and calling your mom 700 times a week asking if this or that is normal. So yeah, that’s why I’ve been MIA – I haven’t been feeling or looking like myself and it was a harsh reality.

But YES it is worth it – it’s worth feeling girlfriend have a dance party in my belly and watching her poke through my skin. It’s worth it watching Chris talk to her a night, it’s worth watching Stella cuddle up with her when we sleep. SO WORTH IT.

Anyway here’s the thing – I realized that I had to slowwww downnnnn – like that i physically had to slow down. So I stopped doing some things to make more time to rest and you know what? I stopped doing the things that I actually like doing and that made me feel good – like blogging and exercising. Unfortunately it took until the third trimester and a few mid-night anxiety attacks to figure out what was going on – but here we are.

So I’m jumping back in. Stay tuned for preggo styling, nursery updates, more life updates and everything in-between. For now, linking some outfits I’ve been living in the past few months below. Happy shopping!!
