J.Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck  |  J.Crew Factory Chambray Popover  |  HUE Faux Leather Leggings  (non-maternity)  |  Louis Vuitton Speedy 30  |  Tamaris D’Orsay Kitten Heels (old, love these & these)  |  J.Crew Factory Pearls  |  Wristology Watch in Cobalt, c/o *use code ‘CLASSYSASSYWHIT‘ to receive 20% off your order*  |  Prada sunglasses via DITTO, *use code ‘CLASSYSASSY’ to receive your first month free*  |  MAC lip color in ‘Ruby Woo’

Ok, you all, you have to purchase this cable knit turtleneck.  Seriously, you will not regret it!!  I loved this sweater so much when I purchased it in burgundy and orchid last year, that I had to add another color when J.Crew restocked them this year.  J.Crew’s game has been ON POINT this year!

Unfortunately, the burgundy color was not restocked this year, BUT the sweater does come in eight other wonderful colors.  I’m considering going back for the navy one…when you really like something, you buy it in all colors, right? 😀

One more FYI–this sweater can be a little itchy if you have sensitive skin, so you might want to add a light button down or turtleneck underneath.

Even though October has officially arrived, temperatures are a little above average right now.  I can’t complain too much, the humidity is gone, and it’s breezy so it doesn’t really feel like it’s in the low 80s, and the mornings and evening are still cool.  So while Fall continues to figure her stuff out (and while Baby Girl is content staying put for the time being), I am sticking with comfortable outfits that can easily transition from daytime to nighttime temps!  M. and I have been taking a lot of walks in the evenings to try to speed up labor, haha, and it cools off enough to need light layers.

For me, that means a comfy pair of jeans or leggings, a lightweight shirt like this tissue turtleneck (at 39 weeks, I can’t believe it still fits!!), ankle booties, and a vest to throw on.

YOU GUYS—-it’s actually starting to feel like fall around here!!  Over the last couple of days, the temperature highs are low 70s, and the mornings are even cooler, so you know what that means….It is OFFICIALLY Blanket Scarf/Vest/Chunky Sweaters/Boots/Pumpkin Spice err-thang Season, woot WOOT! *cues confetti*

My husband and I took a long walk after taking blog pictures last night, and I didn’t even break a sweat!  (That’s a huge win, being 38 weeks pregnant!)

So now that the weather has cooled off (hopefully for good), I am breaking out all of my comfy ponchos, cozy blanket scarves, and enjoying a little bit more neutral color palettes.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good punch of color as much as the next gal, but I have really  been crushing on neutrals lately! (have you seen my Pinterest board?). Read More

Wearing white after Labor Day?  Yeah, that rule never really jived with me.  In my book, white (and especially white denim) is acceptable year-round!

So let’s talk about white denim, specifically, white maternity denim.  I’ve got one word for you–INVEST.  You may be wondering, “why spend the money when I’ll only wear them when I’m pregnant?”.  When it comes to a wardrobe staple like jeans, quality is what you need.

You all, I cannot even begin to describe how much fun we had during our maternity photo session!  You remember my talking about Becky Willard in my birth announcement post, and you’ve seen some of her work on the blog over the last few outfit posts, but I just have to say it again–this girl is so much fun to work!!  She is super sweet, and not to mention she made M. and I feel completely at ease during our session.  Not to mention, her work is gorgeous!!

Happy Labor Day Weekend, friends!

 I hope you all have a restful/fun-packed weekend ahead of you–I will be taking it easy, probably doing some more organizing of baby stuff (I still haven’t put away our gifts from the shower last weekend!), more than likely Netflix will be involved…the usual :).

I still can’t believe it’s September already!!  We’ve all been wishing summer away at this point, but one thing I’m going to miss is off-the-shoulder dresses.  I know many of us fell in LOVE with this trend (not to mention ruffles!), so this is definitely a trend I’d love to keep going through the fall.  What do you all think, would you like to see off-the-shoulder pieces stick around for a little while longer?
