Diaper Bags Gone Glam

I hadn’t given too much thought to what diaper bag I’d like to have until my BFF (and recent new-mom) let me in on a little secret, (whispering): diaper bags can be designer bags. Umm, hello best piece of information I’ve ever received! You now have my full attention and I’m suddenly putting a lot of thought into this purchase! And it makes sense; a bag that us moms will be lugging all over the place day and night? We deserve a little glam amongst the diapers, wipes and spit-up rags – AM I RIGHT? (I am).

Here are the top diaper designer bags that I’m loving:

1. Coach Large City Tote in Saffiano Leather – simple, large and RED (my new favorite color).

2.  Tory Burch Thea Large Tote – oh, my – those tassels! Really liking the blue and the gold together too.

3. Prada Studded Suede Twin Pocket Tote (available at Saks Fifth Avenue) – Subtle enough for the day, but gorgeous enough for the night – I’m in love.

4. Michael Kors Large Miranda Studded Tote – look out world, this mom has gone BLING…golden studded bling – amazing.

5.  MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Zip-Top Tote – simple, classy and just my style.

To My Baby Girl…

To My Sweet Baby Girl…

The colors and textures of your nursery are not just any design thrown together; each piece is a symbol of my hopes and dreams for you and your perspective on life as your grow:

Baby Girl's Nursery Inspiration

ANTIQUE WHITE * RUFFLE PINK * SILVER BLING

ANTIQUE WHITE

* I hope you never forget your roots.

* I hope you stay down to earth and never think the world owes you anything.

* I hope that if you want something, you work hard to obtain it.

* I hope you’re not afraid to get dirty, go camping and play sports with the boys.

* I hope you appreciate the small things in life that money can’t buy.

* I hope you never take sunsets, beaches and the ocean for granted.

* I hope you don’t take yourself or this life too seriously.

* I hope you’ll never judge anyone at first glance.

* I hope you keep your balance – life will try to teeter-totter you in extreme directions.

* I hope that if you end up regretting something, you find a way to fix it enough so you can find peace within yourself.

 

RUFFLE PINK

* I hope that you make wishes on shooting stars, dandelions, and pennies tossed in fountains.

* I hope you handle this life with grace, through the good times and bad.

* I hope, when you are young, that you believe in fairy dust, magic wands and all things make-believe.

* I hope you keep your manners and poise – it’s amazing how far they’ll get you in life.

* I hope you notice and appreciate nice gestures by others.

* I hope you are optimistic and always look at the glass as half full.

* I hope you keep a sense of class and dignity about you, always.

* I hope you recognize natural beauty.

* I hope you build a strong enough wall around your heart so you don’t get taken advantage of, but a weak enough wall so the right person will be able to tear it all down.

 

SILVER BLING

* I hope you have a diva side (just to keep others on their toes).

* I hope you have just enough edge to take the leap.

* I hope you dance when it rains, laugh when you fall and speak your mind when it counts.

* I hope you have a fiery side, only when it’s necessary.

* I hope you chase your dreams.

* I hope that you define your own success and then stop at nothing until it’s obtained.

* I hope that you never let anyone kill your spirit.

* I hope you have confidence but not arrogance.

* I hope you’re not afraid to stand up for what you believe in.

* I hope you know that you’re as good as any boy, probably better.

* I hope you never settle.

The Top 10 Maternity Outfits I’m Loving for Fall

I just need to get this off my chest – most maternity clothes are not cute. In fact, most are a single thread away from hideous. I was just about to write-off maternity clothes altogether and accept my dreaded fate of wearing my husband’s oversized t-shirts and sweatpants when I came across some great brands who offer some (dare I say it out loud) stylish pieces. Because who says pregnant women can’t rock the latest fashion trends?

Here are my Top 10 maternity outfit picks that I’m loving for Fall 2013:

1. Isabella Oliver Leather Legging from ASOS: I’ve been pinning tons of leather pants on my My Style Pinterest board, promising myself that next fall/winter I’d be able to wear this trendy piece. But alas, Elizabeth Oliver came to the rescue with maternity leather leggings, available at ASOS!

2. Isabella Oliver Swing Dress from ASOS: The perfect casual dress for San Diego “fall” weather! Just add some trendy ankle boots and this look is complete!

3. Luxlight Rugby Stripe Pullover from Gap Maternity: If this piece is not Sunday-football worthy then I don’t know what is.  So cute, I want one in every color.

4.  Mama Dress from H&M: I think they meant hot Mama in the description. Can you ever go wrong with a piece from H&M? (the answer is no.) Love the color and the belt and I especially love this with tights and ankle boots!

5. Maternity Exclusive Body-Conscious Dress In Lace With Ribbon Detail from ASOS: Perfect for any fancy event scheduled this Fall. Also looks good with a mock-tini in hand.

6. Maternity Midi Tulip Dress With Ruching from ASOS: I’m just so excited that this dress comes in navy! Classic, gorgeous and a must-have for any special occasion happening between the months of September and November.

7.  The Hang-out Dress from Hatch CollectionComfort and style meets shabby-chic. I like how this look is easy and comfortable (two big pluses when you’re pregnant).

8.  Mama Jersey Top from H&M: Simple and easy to pair with any skinny maternity jeans or leggings.

9.  Maternity Knitted Dress With V Neck and Pleated Waist from ASOS: the pleated waist and v-neck make this a prego show-stopper. It would also look great with some textured tights and ankle boots.

10. Madison Marcus Long Sleeve Zip Front Maternity Sweater from A Pea in the Pod: I can’t help but love everything in stripes this year. The zipper makes it unique and stylish and are those (gasp) leather pants to pair this with? Amazing!
