Little Black Dress with a Splash of Boho

STYLE & BEAUTY
Cute and Boho Maternity Style

It has been a few weeks since I spent some time in front of the camera. From moving last month and getting situated in the new home to reaching my third trimester this momma was feeling pretty pooped. I am so excited about the look that I put together this week to show off my 34 week bump and some gorgeous items I have recently acquired.

Cute and Boho Maternity Style

I’ve been itching to style this little black dress from Au Fait Mama since it arrive in the mail. The soft bamboo fabric makes it super comfortable to slip on and go. Knowing that we will always nurture our babies first, Au Fait Mama wants to alway make sure that we nurture ourselves as well. With the weather getting a little cooler again I paired the cute black maternity dress with a favorite black and white patterned cardigan.

I love the loose fit boho vibe that this cardigan brings to every outfit and it was the perfect addition for me to feel not so dressed up for my evening out in the city.

I have been getting a few things prepped for baby number three’s arrival and am so excited about my Fawn Design diaper bag that I decided take it out for my day of errands to get a feel for the bag. The wide mouthed opening is perfect to easily see what is inside, fitting everything from diapers and wipes to my notebooks and planners.

That isn’t all, I can’t stop gushing over how the bag forms around my body while worn with the shoulder strap. The adjustable shoulder strap allows the perfect fit for each body height and can also be removed, tucked away and worn as a backpack with the two straps located on the back of the bag.

With my first pregnancy I can’t say I was really that into styling my bump and getting dressed in the mornings, but after realizing the benefits of buying clothes that work and look good for both maternity wear and not, I have really enjoyed this process and think I might just miss dressing this bump.

  • A few months ago when I got my wisdom teeth removed it put me in a work out rut. I felt super unmotivated and just blah. Really, mostly just felt sorry for myself. Sounds silly, maybe. But I was thinking about it recently and how that’s kind of continued to linger to the last couple months. I weighed myself the other day (we don’t own a scale so I don’t weigh myself often) and that was a bit of a kick in the butt, I realized that yes I wasn’t feeling good about myself, yes I’ve gained a decent amount of weight, and yes that aligns with the less positive thinking, less motivation and large lacking of exercise.

I feel funny writing this out but I think it’s important to talk about. I shared the times I’ve felt motivation, excited and energized to get to the gym, attend a workout or yoga class, but I also want to share that things happen.

We can have good days, good months, even good years but then something might happen that changes the course of our daily routine.

I don’t think I’ve failed, I’ve just lost track of the healthier lifestyle that was making me feel noticeably better. So here I am writing things out, to hopefully connect with you all on a level of understanding.

Maybe you are feeling the blah. Uninspired, low energy and making excuses for yourself. Here’s my little motivation to say, nothing changes unless you do. If you want change BE THE CHANGE.

At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself on repeat this week, in hopes to snap out of it.

  • It’s been six years since we lost our good friend, to me he was very much like a brother. Genuine, caring, funny, and such a family guy. This weekend we took time to remember. My heart feels heavy, I’ve never been good with words during times of grief but this weekend encouraged me that lots of words aren’t always needed. Our actions and the intentional moments mean so much. #domliveson
  • He makes me smile, the real full mouth all the teeth smile.

  • It's a crazy thing what can happen when you start doing the things you love but also might scare you. I've been creating content on this space for five years as this past year has presented some of the most incredible opportunities. This latest one with @coquitlamcentre has been so fun! Excited to share that I am their next and final 'Girl In Focus' -- head over to their feed to see the first video that was created.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Also, sending a big kiss out there for all of you, for being encouraging, inspiring and simply for just being you. If there's something on your heart that you have been wanting to start, but you feel like you don't know how.. maybe you are scared.. maybe you are worried of judgement. Trust me, it's worth putting all that aside and just trying. Just starting. Because in all honesty, starting is always the hardest part.⁠⠀

PS my outfit is from @rw_co, shoes @callitspring at @coquitlamcentre — I couldn’t leave without them! #girlinfocus #workingit #stylebyCQC
  • Who snacks more, you or the kids?

I used to think it was the kids, but since getting Invisalign I've realized more and more how much I love snacking, as I am willing to take my liners in and out every time. #worthit

A new snack I've been trying out from @patiencefruitco are their Active Blends, my favourite blend being the Seasalt & Pepper. Check out my stories to see all three flavours. *sponsored #patiencefruitco
