My husband and I are trying to take advantage of these next few months of it still just being us. He had an art gallery opening for a show that he is in, so we went out to dinner at one of our favorite places in the Gowanus; Lavender Lake. I do love being with my husband and enjoying our time alone...but after the art opening I couldn't be more excited to bring a little baby into our life and exposing him to art at an early age. I just look forward to all the new experiences with get to share with him.

By the way, I have become obsessed with the boutique PinkBlush. They have the cutest and comfiest maternity clothes. They also have a non-maternity section! I love that this dress can go from pre and post. The fabric has a stretch to go full 9 months but doesn't have the ruching on the side like most to give you the extra fabric for a growing belly.

I've always been a creature of comfort, but being pregnant now has really shown me how important it is to feel comfortable in clothes. I had finally gave in to buy my first pairs of maternity jeans because my regular jeans just weren't cutting. I have also been opting to wear more dresses, and thanks to Mother Nature for allowing the weather for me to continue to do. Though this Tobi dress isn't a maternity dress, it works perfectly for preggos and non-preggos. It's super light weight, which is great with the unusually high temperatures, and super soft. I can't wait for it to get a little cooler so that I can pair it with a pair of over the knee boots or a pair of booties. I'm actually thinking about buy this dress in black as well.

A Little Surprise and Fall Feelings

 photo pumpkin_zpstnfellwl.png

If you follow me on Instagram (@fashionistanygirl) then you saw my a little announcement last week...but the husband and I are expecting our first baby! He'll be arriving in late March! We are so excited to share our journey to parenthood. Even just 15 weeks, this process has been so crazy and beautiful. It's amazing to see how small these little beings start out and then you have this little human at the end. Even the transformation between our first sonogram to our second was just so cool. There's no other way of putting this, it's just cool. I've been very lucky, no morning sickness. There were days in my 1st trimester where I felt totally wiped out. Especially on the weekends. It's great to have a husband that is content with staying home catching up on TV and movies and taking naps. I've  also been lucky enough to keep up my workout routine. Though I can tell the difference with my cardio level, for someone who is active I must say at times it's a little frustrating getting winded and tired quickly. But I've been learning to take a breaks and breaths when needed. I'm also very lucky to have trainers who care about me and help me perform at my best.

Last weekend the husband and I took the bump to go pumpkin picking, eat apple cider donuts and enjoy some hot apple cider in Yorkville. Then we headed up to Cold Springs to enjoy brunch and walk around the town. I can't wait for next fall when we have our little boy to go pumpkin picking with and enjoy all the fall things...especially Boo at the Zoo.

New York's weather has been crazy going from high 80s to low 70s. Even the mornings are crisper and by mid day you are sweating. The best way to cope with this weather is by sporting a summer frock with a light jacket. I'm so in love with fun and cheeky Bow and Drape jacket paired with this summer dress from Tobi. Sexy fun for a early fall look.

Last week I celebrated my 31st birthday. Another day older...another year wiser. Well the verdict is still out on that one. But so far being 31 is much like being 30. And I'm not complaining. Here's to another year, filled with new exciting beginnings and endings.

When I bought this maxi dress from Banana Republic Factory I knew exactly the different ways I wanted to wear it. This style being one of them. A flowy maxi shirt dress is a perfect layering piece especially for the fall. Add a basic tee underneath when doing a printed shirt and a pair of light wash skinny jeans, like these from Madewell. A pair of heeled booties are the key piece to tie the look together for a fall feel.

Summer is fighting to stay here in New York. The weather has been nice and crisp in the mornings and then by the time the afternoon hits we are in the high 70s/low 80s. My favorite casual weekend look for days where it doesn't know whether to be summer or fall is a oversized sweatshirt and a pair of denim shorts. This look is perfect for lounging at home as well as running errands. By the way I'm going to live in this sweater from Aerie all fall and winter long. It's so cozy and soft. Plus, I love the oversizedness. It easily goes with shorts to a pair of leggings or skinny jeans. So don't be surprised my Instagram feed is me just living in this sweater.

September is a tricky month when it comes to weather and clothes. In the mornings and evenings the weather is crisper and the afternoons are warmer. When it comes to transitioning into the cool weather there are key pieces that I turn to in my wardrobe, which are my Zara 3/4 sleeve leather jacket and my velvet ballerina flats from Jessica Buurman. These pieces can take a summer dress, like my J.Crew dress pictured above, through a fall transition.

How do you transition into fall?

Fall Trends: Knit Season

 photo knit season1_zpscie6lv1w.png

Cooler weather has entered New York City, which means knit season has begun. There is nothing like a cozy knit with a side of pumpkin spice latte on crisp mornings. This season it's all about the chunky knits and bell sleeves. You can find these designs from super high end to fashion steals. I'm in love with the Maggie Marilyn pink bell sleeve sweater, but def. opting for the Miss Selfridge white balloon sleeve sweater or even the Anthropologie bell sleeve.

What sweater style are you craving this knit season?
