Plaid on Plaid

End of Winter Layers

winter maternity styleThis top has gotten me through the winter. It is warm, structured enough to conceal the bump and it goes with everything! The downside? It is dry clean only, and I spill something on it every single time I wear it. Also, can we talk about my new Jord watch for just one second? It is made from solid wood, is super cute, and it smells really good. I know that is weird, but the fresh wood smells so nice!

Bump, meet The Internet

winter maternity styleYou guys, we have a lot to cover in this post. First, I’m pregnant! Yayayayayay! To answer your FAQs:

  • She’s a girl.
  • She’s due in late June.
  • We have a name but it’s not ready to be shared on the Internet just yet.
  • No, we aren’t moving.
  • Yes, we have a room for her (and a bathroom, too!).
  • I feel fine :) just tired, and really out of breath.
  • Matt is just as excited as me and super supportive!

Also, this post was supposed to coming to you from our fabulous Charleston babymoon. But the day we were supposed to leave our flight got cancelled due to ‘weather’ and wouldn’t be rescheduled for another two days. So we had to cancel the whole thing. It was such a bummer!! But we quickly remembered we live in NYC and can have a fun staycation, too. Even if it’s flippin’ FREEZING!

Okay, that’s all for now!

Winter Check In

Friends, I am so sorry I’ve been away so long! It is almost inexcusable. I have been traveling for work like crazy, and it has been so cold, I have been snuggled up in my house wearing sweats and dreaming of summer.

I hope you can forgive me. I promise to start posting more regularly again this month! I swear! Anyway, here’s a quick check in so you know what I’ve been up to.

winter style

wearing: Warm things! It has been so cold, I have been wearing layer upon layer of everything. You guys should have seen me at Fashion Week. Everyone was dressed so cute and I was over in the corner looking like a snow beast. Warmth over beauty, that’s what I always say!
listening: I actually need some music suggestions. I have been listening to my same old tired playlists. What have you guys been listening to?
reading: The Red Tent. I actually just started it. I am only about thirty pages in. So far so good, though!
watching: My husband and I watched Whiplash over the weekend and really liked it. Great movie with wonderful acting. Now we keep asking each other, ‘Are you rushing or are you dragging?!?!’ just like J.K. Simmons character. I also invented my own take on the question: “Are you a Russian or are you a dragon?!” Don’t ask… It literally makes no sense whatsoever. But I can’t stop saying it and thinking it is the funniest thing ever.
doing: Reading, watching TV, cleaning. Anything that involves me staying indoors :)
loving: The fact that, because of my work I have been able to travel to Miami and LA. I needed a change of scenery and a break from the cold weather and those little trips really helped. If only NYC had LA weather and LA palm tress. Then it would be paradise!!
hating: Ok this is weird, but because of the weather I have been wearing tights under my jeans/pants. But for some reason my tights do not want to stay up. It makes for an awkwardly saggy pants situation, which is not a good look.
wishing: Hmm I am not really wishing for anything at the moment. I am pretty content.
wanting: Some cookies from Insomnia cookies. Have you guys ever tried those cookies? Insomnia is pretty common in college towns. It is basically a place that delivers fresh, warm cookies. Seriously! It is the GREATEST invention of our modern world.

Levain Bakery Treats and a Fuzzy Photo Bomber

winter style 3There is a Levain Bakery in my ‘hood that I am more than slightly obsessed with. The treats there are ALL delicious. Every one of them. I would know because I have tried each one.

So my husband and I decided to hit up Levain for a delicious breakfast treat and the grumpiest little dog comes and photo bombs our shoot! Despite the dog’s grumpy demeanor, I do think we had a connection. He was all about posing for the camera and generally being lovely.

But isn’t his face just the grumpiest?! I mean that face is all kinds of judgey and shade-throwing. I love it.
