It’s Fashion Friday! As our theme for the past week or two has been about Easter . . . so too is this one!
Jax and I choose outfits that would be fit for any Easter Brunch with a little vintage flare.
We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to sport some amazing Etsy finds.
On Jax – an adorable pair of Wool Herringbone Little Boy Pants by HughFielding. This shop has some totally cute little kids clothes. You should check them out. The pants were inspired by bespoke mens fashion. They are 100% wool herringbone with a blue striped mens shirting cotton detail. The herringbone is supersoft midweight brown/black with an Elastic waistband.
The second Etsy find is a pair of Lace Earrings by Bumble. They are totally amazing and every mother needs a pair! She has other beautiful jewelry on her site as well. What I love about them . . . they are romantic, yet edgy.
Also on me, a yellow and white cherry dress from forever21 with leggings, leather sandals, and a cute bird necklace I got as a gift a long time ago.
Make sure you take a look at the Etsy designers I mentioned above. Next week, we’ll share a little more with you about them and their products (plus a suprise giveaway).
Have a fantastic Easter weekend! May it be filled with egg dying and all the activities and food you enjoy.

I was pretty lucky when it came to my pregnancy. I didn’t get morning sickness and didn’t gain very much weight (about 25lbs). Target sales racks were my go to shopping place for maternity wear, whether buying true maternity wear or just oversized clothes. I also bought used clothes. It seemed silly to me to purchase normal priced maternity wear when I would only be able to wear the items for such a short period of time.
However, I do think one thing people don’t tell you after the pregnancy, some of that maternity wear is still wearable as you lose the weight and change sizes. So keep those maternity clothes and try them out as you shed the pounds. Then buy new stuff when you start getting back to your ideal weight. Although, splurge and buy clothes if it they don’t fit well. If you don’t look good in your clothes you often don’t FEEL good either (and that can be in a large part due to fit!).
Well here I am when I was about 28 weeks.
I think my brown boots are getting a little redundent (don’t worry I’ll suggest some good ones). I bought jeggings for maternity wear for like $6 on the Target sales racks, the top is thrifted from Buffalo Exchange, and I wore my husband’s tank top underneath.
on me = men’s under shirt tanks $12.99 for 4 , H&M Black Maternity Top $29.95 (not in black, but cute maternity top), Target Gray Jeggings $24.99 (H&M Maternity Jeans $34.95), Target Boots $39.99 (I love the buckle detail on these).
Not as cheap as I would do it, but there are some great affordable options out there! Like I said, check sales racks, and thrift stores for even better finds.
