Maternity Style// Black, Stripes, and Red all over

To do list:
1. finish the meal plan for the week
2. transition my fitness again and work in more yoga... or maybe some awkward ball exercises I'm supposed to be doing at this point in my pregnancy  
3. make some oatmeal cookies with the girls
4. do something about the laundry collecting around the house in laundry baskets 
5. See if any of my dresses still fit while cleaning up the closet
6. work harder at pushing martin out the door to work instead of thinking of ways to stall him
glasses - Amazon, earrings - Natasha, blazer - c/o Macy'sowl necklace - gift , striped shirt - TJmaxx, red skinnies - Ross, leopard heels - Breckelles

Guess what, its the next round of the Maternity Fashion Collaboration today! If you're new to the whole idea its pretty self explanatory  just a few of us preggo bloggers getting together to share wardrobe ideas by taking turns sporting different closet staples! I know that when I'm pregnant it can take a lot to feel confident leaving the house, and inspiration from other new moms to be helps a lot! Here's the group: 
Tiffany from I Am Style-ish
Abbey from Along Abbey Road
and Lynzy from Sparkling Footsteps

Follow their blog links to see outfit details and more of these ladies fab style! We only have a few more weeks of this collaboration, so make sure to follow along by pinning, following, or bookmarking!
Thanks for visiting today, don't forget to scroll down for this week's giveaway, and I'll see you tomorrow for something fun I've not posted on the blog in a while!
xo, Emily

    1. oh no! I completely forgot to list it because its just been my little run around purse and I just spaced.haha but the brand is Tyler Rodan!! They had it in a few different colors too, but I thought the grey would go with the most things, so I hope that helps! Thanks for pointing that out too:) Have a great day!

    1. Aww thank you Emma! sometimes I think maybe they're funny to publish on my blog, like who's going to want to read them besides me, but then again the whole blog is things I myself love to do and make etc, and that's what blogs are supposed to be! haha
      So it really helps to hear that:)

  20. Oh my goodness, those red pants look hot on you! I adore how you matched them with leopard print shoes. Pregnancy looks great on you. I did yoga during my pregnancy, i found it really helped prepare me physically and mentally for the delivery, plus, it was super relaxing. Enjoy!

  21. You are just stunning! SO beautiful, elegant, and confident. Your little one(s!) is lucky to have such a phenomenal mama. Thank you for sharing some of your secrets.

    Can you PLEASE share two secrets with me?
    FIRST and most importantly, specifically what brand are those pants? I have to have them! I have been so afraid to try the skinny jean trend, especially coupled with a bright color, but I adore these!
    ALSO, do you have a tutorial for this hair style? Love it!

    1. aww you are so nice! I think I may have to frame your comment.haha Ladies like you are the biggest and best reward for all the hard work that goes into blogging, it just means so much to hear things like that, so thanks a million!
      As for your questions, of course I will share! I just came back from my boset and the exact brand of the pants is

      U-51
      authenticate denim

      That's what the tag says! :) and for the second question, I just sorta threw the style together so I don't have a tutorial, but it was surprisingly easy and fast and I LOVE getting tutorial requests, so I'll try to get that one on here asap!

      Thanks again for your sweet comment, and have a great Day!
