Date Night

LOFT Sailer PantsThis might be the last time you see me in these pants, but they’ve been great up until my 25 week mark. I really wanted to try and find pieces throughout my pregnancy that I can hopefully style post-baby too. I wore these to work with a peplum sleeve black top and plan to pair them with chunky, cozy sweaters in the fall and winter.

Sailor Pants / Knot Mules

LOFT Sailer Pants I bought these mules in both colors because I loved the style so much, and they’re a really manageable height. My sister tried them on but unfortunately they weren’t as comfortable for her. The way they’re cut, they could hit the top of your foot in a way that makes it harder to walk in them, but I think it’s definitely worth trying them and walking around inside before giving them the final green light. I wore the pale pink pair to my family bridal shower with this dress and I’ve also worn the black version with this maternity dress. They’d look just as good with distressed boyfriend jeans and a white button down.

LOFT Sailer Pants LOFT Sailer PantsIf I’m being honest here, I can’t quite remember the last time I dressed up for a date night. For the most part, I’m a homebody, and lately, I’ve been so tired on the weeknights and weekends that I haven’t been up for leaving the house much. But I thought it’d be fun to put this look together as it would work if you’re expecting or not!

In other exciting news, Bill and I finally booked a trip to Colorado at the end of the month to escape and relax for a few days. We’re staying in Gypsum but plan to take day trips to Vail and Denver and maybe Aspen. If you have any recommendations, we’d love to hear them!

  • Three years without our Kev. Remembering him today and every day 💙
  • So happy to be reunited with my people after traveling for work all week ❤️
  • I feel like a bit of a broken record these days but healing takes time and healing a broken heart while trying to keep it together for your family is hard. My mom was my best friend, and while I like to think I knew how good I had it while she was alive, there are just so many more things I’d want to thank her for, especially with my new lens as a mom to Ainsley. I can’t imagine going through chemo and still trying to take care of her grown kids the way she did. I can’t imagine getting the call that no parent ever wants to receive finding out your son passed away, and then going on to keep fighting cancer for another year and a half. All while still making me breakfast on the weekend and running errands for me during the week, helping me plan our wedding (literally don’t know what I would’ve done without her and my sister), taking every phone call from me as I was navigating new jobs, visiting house after house as Bill and I tried to find our first home and so, so much more that will never fit into an Instagram caption. I see so much of my mom’s determination and stubbornness in Ainsley, and I can’t wait to see more of her as she continues to grow up. I am forever grateful to be her mom — it’s the best ‘title’ I’ll ever have. And while, I’m grateful to have had my mom for as long as I did, it still feels way too short. Today was filled with lots of giggles and snuggles but also lots of tears as I celebrate my first Mother’s Day with Ainsley and my second without my mom. I’m trying to be better about letting myself have the bad days and giving myself more grace. So I’m calling it a night and watching Bad Moms while eating ice cream in bed. Sending lots of love if you’re having a hard day and a virtual cheers with my pint of ice cream ❤️

  • When you’re on duty to supervise the sleeping baby, but you’re also on vacation so you have a margarita with lunch. I’ve been living in this jumpsuit all week. I bought it in two colors, and it’s been great to wear to the pool but also for play time with Ainsley. Plus, it came in petite and has pockets 🙌🏼 http://liketk.it/2Bftk #liketkit @liketoknow.it
