If you’ve followed along for a while, you know how much I absolutely adore our wedding photographer. We are so very lucky to now call Quyen and her husband good friends.

Queyn opened Assembly two years ago in Stevens Point, WI (you can follow along with the shop on Instagram here).  It’s a perfectly curated clothing and small goods shop, and all of the items are hand picked, from dresses to dainty jewelry. She was kind enough to send me some dresses that fit the bump perfectly yet still make me feel polished enough for work. They’ve been super easy to transition from day to night and genuinely comfortable. I wasn’t ready to start buying maternity clothes right away and these have proven to be incredibly versatile, and I can’t wait to style them next summer as well.

These photos were shot awhile ago when Baby Ritt was just about 17 weeks so the bump has definitely grown since then (we’re officially 22 weeks today – more baby and house updates to come soon!).  I’m wearing the Haile dress, and I’ve been eying the Hi-Fi dress, too. While these photos were taken when we still had some cooler temps, my office is generally pretty cold so I still bring an oversized cardigan and/or scarf to work to add layers throughout the day. They would both work great with my other summer staple: the jean jacket.

Quyen is offering Fifth & Rose followers 15% off their purchase with the code “CARLY15” and if you spend $50 or more, you qualify for free shipping. Happy shopping!

  • Just a 10 month old who loves her books and animals 💗 http://liketk.it/2DmaU #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKfamily #LTKhome #LTKbaby #sharetheeverymom #projectnursery #lovemypbk
  • Sending a virtual cheers to any other parents that had a 5:30 a.m. wake up call this morning ☕️ Not going to lie though, we’ve gotten so much done before 9:30 a.m. including a quiet walk around our neighborhood.
  • 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 ❤️
