4 Adorable Maternity Outfits in Navy

I’m such a fan of wearing black.  Pregnant or not, it really is a flattering color!  But sometimes it can make you look washed out washed out and sickly…especially if you are knocked up and battling that awful morning sickness.

What’s a girl to do?  Reach for something in NAVY instead!

Navy is a fabulous color!  It looks so complementary with many skin tones and hair colors.  Plus, it’s really easy to mix and match with things that you already have in your closet.

Navy with black?  You bet!  Navy with leopard print?  Yup, that’s a perfect match too!  Navy also looks great with grays, beiges, pinks and reds…really any color that you would think to wear any neutral with.

This weekend was super laid back and casual.  We really didn’t do too much…the usually ballet and running of errands nonsense.  My husband even indulged me by an impromptu trip to a thrift store.  (It’s the small things…)

Even when my Saturdays and Sundays are spent schlepping the kids, or dealing with my son’s surprise double pink eye, I still try to add a little excitement to my outfit.

A fresh coat of nail polish and a fabulous lipstick always help me feel put together.  And this faux fur jacket was just the amount of charm that I needed to feel more glamorous.

The Hardest Lesson I Had To Teach My Daughter

“Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place.”

I’ve talked with my daughter about all sorts of topics during her six years of life.  But the most difficult conversations we’ve had have been about her accepting herself.

Don’t get me wrong.  This kid was born with confidence.  She’s a leader.  She’s the one who walks up to the other kids on the playground, makes friends, and starts community games of hide-and-go-seek.

But she’s also human.  She has her moments and phases.  Like the time when she hated her red hair and wished to be blonde like all her little friends.

As a parent, it was heart-breaking to see her wanting to fit in so badly.  I will do most anything for my children, but I will not let them change who they are to be like everyone else.

Obviously our conversations with each other went deeper than hair color.  And after a while, she learned to love her ginger locks again.

I know that our conversations about confidence are far from over…I’m just glad that she’s off to a good start.

It has been about a month since I’ve been outside to take pictures.  I was so excited to take advantage of this weekend’s “warmer” weather!  And compared to last week, Sunday was like a heat wave!  I’ll take anything over 30 degrees, but once those temps drop…forget about it!!

Sweaters, jeans, and boots have been my uniform this winter.  Usually I’m reaching for a vintage sweater, but this thin turtleneck one from H&M was perfect for an afternoon of shopping.  As for the ripped jeans, it was definitely warm enough to show a little skin…don’t let the snow piles in the background fool you!
