Wow.  I’m feeling so old these days!  When I was in my twenties, I used to be able to go out at night and bounce back in the mornings. Not so much now!  After late nights this past Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and then getting up to be at Navy Pier at 7:30 on Saturday morning, I was (and still am) spent!!

It was all worth it though!  Especially the early morning on Saturday.  This weekend was the Chicago Toy & Game Fair at Navy Pier.  (The playCHIC fashion show was on Thursday.)  I dragged the family willingly along.  The kids had a blast, and we even got a little Christmas shopping done at the fair.

This outfit was perfect for checking out all the booths.  I went with a fun graphic t-shirt to get in the playful mood.  And the comfy cardigan and hands-free purse served their purpose.  The finishing touch was a bold red lip…you know, to help distract attention away from the bags under my eyes!

One of the fun things about being pregnant is having that chance to really show off your belly!  This was difficult for me embrace during my first pregnancy, but by my second I was ready to rock that bump!!

These hot mamas look majorly adorable in their casual fitted dresses.  I love how they added a sporty element by wearing sneakers rather than slipping on a pair of flip flops or sandals.  All these dresses are so versatile, too!  While these outfits are great for warmer weather, they can easily be transitioned into the cooler months by adding a great cardigan, tights, and a pair of stylish ankle boots.

We had two birthday parties to go to on Saturday.  The first one was a kid party, the second one was just for grown-ups.  (Guess which one was my favorite…)  Even though we had a few hours between the two events, I didn’t want to do any sort of outfit change in between.  This snake-print blouse was the perfect solution!  I’ve said this before, and I’ll keep spreading the word, printed fabrics are perfect for concealing dirt, stains, spaghetti sauce, cupcake frosting, glitter glue…you get the point!  As someone who is almost always around kids (aka dirt magnets), I wonder why I even buy any solid color clothing at all!  Prints are the way to go!!

If your weekend was full of parties and dirty children as well, perhaps you missed this the first time around…

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away, which means that Christmas is knocking at the door.  I’ve already witnessed people with Santa and friends on their minds, but I refuse to get too far ahead of the holidays.  I mean, it’s already snowing here in Chicago which usually calls for decking the halls, but I still feel like we’ve barely enjoyed fall.

One thing that I am getting excited about this year is presents.  And I’m going to be completely selfish and talk about the ones for the gift-giver…’cause you know, after shopping for everyone and their mother, you gotta reward yourself with a little something!!

JTV has tons of shiny little treats!  I’ve been all over their gold collection.  This yellow gold sideways bar would be perfect for layering with other necklaces, and I love the texture on this Splendido Oro gold ring!  They have really pretty gemstones and watches, too.  (I’ve pinned a bunch of my favorite pieces…just in case the husband needs a little help this year!)

This double curb link bracelet that I’m wearing is from their collection.  I love how nicely it pairs with my go-to vintage bangles.  I bet it’s going to become a regular on my wrists.  You like it too, or maybe you know someone who has a thing for gold like I do?  I have an extra one from JTV to giveaway!!  All you need to do is let me know in the comments here.  (Make sure you’re on this post’s page, not my main page or else the comments won’t show up.)  And you better act quickly!  I’ll be picking a winner on Monday (11/17) night.  If I don’t make this fast, Julia is already planning on wearing your bracelet to a party next week!  Good luck!!
