Outfit Post: In Everything Give Thanks

 photo Thanksgiving5_zpsfrnutwpf.png

This year I have a lot to be thankful for. The biggest thing I'm thankful for is the little bean that I'm growing inside of me. I can not begin to tell you the joy in my heart that I already feel for this little boy. I feel very blessed to have a loving and caring husband as well as a network of supportive and loving friends and family. As well as a those who connect with me through this blog. Even though I feel a bit crazed right now with my graduate school coming to an end (trying to finish my Capstone and other projects) and prepping for Baby C, I still can't help but feel very thankful and lucky for where I am right now.

Sunglasses: H&M

I've always been a huge fan of leggings, especially on the weekends. Now that I'm four months pregnant I have fully embraced leggings into my wardrobe full time. I have a couple pairs of maternity jeans but there is nothing like a good pair of soft leggings. I'm a fan of the over the belly panels, which isn't surprising since pre pregnancy I was a high waist junkie. I love the extra lift and comfort they give to a growing belly. 

I love pairing a long tunic top with a pair of leggings for a work day look and on the weekends a quick throw on and go sweater. I'm not one for spending a lot of money on maternity wear so I have turned to H&M, Old Navy, and ASOS as my go to for maternity clothes.

It's been super cold here in NYC and my body is in shock. Nothing like coming back from 80 degree weather to 30 degree weather. And since now it feels more like winter than it does fall all I want is hot coco. Also might be Baby C talking as well. So on Saturday before we hit up Buy Buy Baby I made the husband make a mandatory pit stop at Colson Pastries for some hot coco. It was exactly what I had been craving all week. Nothing like a cozy oversized knit and hot coco on a cold Saturday.

Poncho Sweater: Urban Outfitters | Dress: Pink Blush | Boots: Jeffrey Campbell | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff |
Feathers Boutique

I'm obsessed with the shop Pink Blush. This dress has been on repeat since the husband bought it for me for my birthday. Its so comfortable and casual, it's hard not to buy it in every color. I mean I would if I knew I had a few more days of summer left (you know since it's been 70 degrees here). I now have a couple of dresses from their boutique and I can't seem to stop shopping. I might have just ordered another dress from there today. I love that their dresses and clothing can take you from pregnancy to post maternity. This dress is for a growing belly has it has ruching on the side.

Style Guide: Pantone Fall 2017 Color Tawny Port

Sweater Dress: Tobi | Bralette: c/o Aerie | Shoes: Century21 | Bag: 3.1 Philip Lim for Target | Sunglasses: Feathers Bourtique

This fall is all about shades of red, including the take on maroon called Tawny Port. As according to PantoneTawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful. Which I have to agree, one of my favorite shades of red are the darker tones. These colors remind me of early autumn when the leaves start to change and you see these beautiful shades of maroon to yellow. 

Not only was I a sucker for the color of this Tobi sweater dress, but I'm all about a dress with pockets! This dress has a deep v-neck which can be a little scandalous for a casual Saturday. So I paired it up with one of my favorite baralettes from Aerie to give me some coverage. Sexy, but comfortable.
