Spring 2018 Fashion Haul

HELLO LOVES & HAPPY MARCH!!

I always get excited when March rolls around.. but this year, more than ever. My baby girl is due any day now & I can't wait for her to join our world & change my life forever๐Ÿ’•
I've been anticipating her arrival for months, but especially these past few weeks as I've grown more & more uncomfortable...& started to OUTGROW my maternity tops!๐Ÿ˜ณ
This brings me to my next excitement for March..warmer weather & SPRING CLOTHES! ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ‘— Ugh! I absolutely die for Spring fashion, & although I've loved living in comfy leggings & sweaters (perks of being prego in Fall/Winter) this mama is ready to feel fashionable again!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ I'm looking forward to not only seeing my feet again, but seeing them in some cute sandals & flip flops..OMG how I can't wait to wear sandals & flip flops!๐Ÿ‘ก๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
I've been stuck on my butt with sciatic pain the past few weeks & therefore have had plenty of time to scope the web for some great spring items. I thought it'd be fun to share my most recent purchases and other items I've been eyeing! 
Enjoy๐Ÿ’•




Spring 2018 Fashion Haul


Button-down Blouse HERE!
I feel like I've been purchasing nothing but striped button-downs like this one. With my baby coming & plans to breastfeed, I figured I should take advantage of the trend & get as many blouses as possible. They''ll not only provide easy access to the girls but look cute tucked in a pair of skinny jeans!



Plaid is huge for spring/summer & with adorable options like this blouse, it's hard to not fall in love! I won't mind looking like a picnic blanket in this cutie. This particular top is already sold out but there are so many versions of plaid tops on every site!


This Tularosa Bikini & more HERE!
I've always died over these high waisted Tularosa bikinis & finally decided to splurge & get one for this summer. They are definitely pricey but I love the detail of this one so it's coming to the beach with me!


Fringe Ankle Jeans HERE!
OMG I can't wait to get back in my jeans! I got a ton last summer but am still missing a pair of cute fringy ankle jeans. These are affordable & look like they'll fit well. They are easy to find on every website. 

ESPRIT Vegan Flip-Flops HERE!
I buy these sandals every spring. They are hands down THE most comfortable flip flops I have yet to own. This year I bought 2 in every color so they last all season long. (I got mine on DSW.com)


Tassel Espadrilles HERE!
The past 3 years I've purchased all sorts of espadrilles & found they're my go-to shoe. They're always comfy & look cute with jeans & capri's so I have this cute tassel pair in my shopping cart. 


Ted Baker Crossbody HERE!
With my baby coming I know I'll be busy toting her gear around with me everywhere I go - so a practical cross-body bag was a MUST for me this season. I just purchased this one from Ted Baker because I know it'l look cute while keeping all my necessities close. 

Basket Tote HERE!
For the days I don't feel like being so practical, I want a bag like this one. I've been seeing them all over my favorite bloggers sites & think they're the IT bag this summer. I'm not sure how comfortable/practical they'll actually be, but I think it would look so cute with a summer dress & sandals. 

Beaded Earrings HERE!
So large embellished earrings are my favorite accessory & they happen to be hugely on trend this Spring! I just think earrings are the easiest to throw on to make any look cuter without making it difficult to function!

Burberry Iphone Case HERE!
I'm such a sucker for accessories, especially phone cases. I love this one by Burberry because it's neutral, clean & fashionable & does the job.


Gucci sunglasses HERE!
I don't like spending a lot of $ on sunglasses, but if it's a pair I love and know I'll really wear then I'll invest in a good brand. I just love the color combo of these & think they''ll be so cute with any fun spring outfit.

Tiffany Co Eau De perfume HERE!
My sister and I were in Bloomingdales a few weeks ago & sampled this new Tiffany & Co. perfume & OMG its amazing! I rarely find a scent that I'm really drawn to but this is the PERFECT crisp fresh scent for Spring. I ordered the biggest bottle because I want it to last forever!

Nursery Reveal!


Today I thought I'd share my babies nursery with you <3



I started researching nursery decor from the moment I found out I was pregnant. I knew no matter what the sex would be that I wanted a soft, cozy space for my baby. When I learned we were having a girl I immediately envisioned an elegant, feminine and whimsical space. My goal was to incorporate a fair balance of beiges and blush tones, with a few touches of gold. 

The swans kind of happened by accident lol! I was in pottery barn kids making my registry when I first came across the precious swan mobile by Monique Lhuillier. I HAD to have it (..despite not having a single other swan related item) From that moment on I started seeing swans EVERYWHERE (seriously..like as in every single baby department of every. single. store!) So thats how the rest of the swans appeared! I tried not to overdo it..just a few here and there..hopefully I succeeded :) In the end I absolutely LOVE how the nursery turned out, it's just how I envisioned.

 Sometimes my husband & I go in and just lay on her rug at night & listen to the mobile music play..we can't wait for our sweet angel to arrive <3

My Baby Shower & Registry


My Winter Baby Shower

This past weekend my mother and sister threw me the most incredible winter baby shower elequently themed "Baby it's Cold Outside." Everything was over the top; from the hot cocoa bar complete with my favorite powdered donuts, to the stunning naked cake that was almost too pretty to eat! They had the cutest games and adorable clothes line full of girly outfits for my princess. I am SO blessed to have had all the ones I love most there to celebrate me and baby Bakkar. 










Some of my top baby registry items:

So as I'm sure all first time moms, I wanted to do my research on what the "top baby products" were for 2017/2018 . It can be overwhelming seeing hundreds of different products online..not to mention..multiple brands for each type of item as well. I kept seeing a few of the same repeat items on blogs/websites over and over so I made my choices based on their reviews and recommendations. 

I thought I'd share my top choices and the items I received to possibly help any other expectant mommies out there. {Of course there are different opinions on items based on personal preference/your babies gender etc..but from what I hear, these products are all amazing}
