I am the luckiest girl in the world… soon to be replaced of course by the lovely Little J, who I can now confirm will be most stylish little fashionista baby ever.
This past Saturday I had my baby shower or as we called it, a glamorous baby bump bash. As many of you probably know, having a baby shower was something I was not over the moon about. I’ve never understood the baby games, oohing and ahhing over everything baby and decorating with pastels, animals, soothers and baby bottles, but this Saturday everything was absolutely perfect – maybe not the typical shower, but one that was exactly me and my wonderful friends.
We had the bash at my place because I love hosting and felt that it was truly the best venue for everyone to spend quality time with each other.
My favorite part was the decor! I’m definitely not the best party decor expert out there, but a quick stop at Party City and we were set. We didn’t have a theme, but stuck with black, white, silver and bright pink for everything we bought. It ended up looking really great, keeping everything simple, fun and elegant.
I think I could be one of the worst people for falling prey to feeling like I need something new to wear to every big/important event I have to attend.
Now, let me be clear, sometimes going out to the find the perfect dress for the big party is exactly what’s needed. I mean it’s no fun wearing the same outfit over and over again (especially at specific to dress for events), but sometimes, all that’s really needed is a good shop session and little bit of reasoning.
Now, it took me being 31 weeks pregnant to realize this, but today I truly came out feeling like I made one of the wisest fashion purchasing decisions i’ve ever made.
This Saturday is my baby shower. We’re doing a ‘dressed up’ lunch at my house and I was 100% sure that I wanted to wear a dress that was both cute and flowy enough to cover my baby bump.
Truth be told, I’m not quite sure how to do this. I read all these fantastic blogs and always think to myself, how on earth are these people coming up with such fantastic content everyday? How is it that they can have these clever musings that keep me engrossed in their lives on the daily?
