My Style // Getting Back to Me

It has been five months since my last outfit post, but pregnancy and post-pregnancy will do that to you. As you guys know from my What I’m Wearing Now posts, even with the best intentions, maternity fashion just isn’t at the top of my priority list by half-way through the second trimester. It’s also basically freezing in Chicago from October through March and I’m just not ambitious enough to brave that sh*t to show you pictures of what I’m wearing. Getting to (sort of) wear normal clothes that I actually really like again though, coupled with the fact that I just spent a week in a place with not only phenomenal weather but also an insanely gorgeous natural backdrop, inspired me to shoot a couple of my current favorite outfits. And here’s the first one, in all its glory.

This look certainly isn’t anything fancy or complicated by any means, but I love it because it’s probably the exact outfit I would describe if someone asked me to define my style. It’s comfortable but not sloppy. It’s a little boho and a little minimalist and casual but also dressy enough to wear out to dinner (which is what we did right after we snapped these photos). I wish the earrings showed up better in the photos – my stepmom bought them for me in a small art gallery boutique we visited during our stop in the tiny town of Jerome and they’re gorgeous. This look just makes me happy, man. It feels good to be getting back to me. And I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to wear it here as well. I have a feeling it’s going to be my summertime staple.

Links I Love, Right Now

It’s Friday, spring officially arrives in 9 short days, and Daylight Savings Time begins Sunday morning (yay for lighter evenings!). These are all pretty fantastic things in my book. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m in a great mood.

Between our flight back from vacation this past weekend and Emmett’s continued middle-of-night nursing sessions, I’ve had plenty of time to browse the internet and stumble upon randomly cool things, so today seemed like the perfect time for another Links I Love post. I hope you guys enjoy these fun findings, and your weekend as well.

Someday when I’m completely over the whole urban/suburban lifestyle, I am totally moving back to the woods, preferable into a home just like this one.

I got to visit one of my favorite Free People stores when I was in Scottsdale last week (and buy these sunglasses in Flamingo, as well as this majorly marked down top), which then led me to spend way too much time on their website, which then led to me falling in love with this, this, and this (shown in top image).

Awww. This Seoul-based illustrator took to drawing these little moments of love with his wife. So sweet.

A fellow member of an online creative group for women I’m involved with wrote this incredible piece on the mental cost of owning your own business that needs to be talked about.

I hear so many people say they often purchase packaged foods rather than fresh fruits and veggies because they’re cheaper. According to this article, that isn’t the case at all.

Essley is basically obsessed with her IKEA play kitchen, but it would have been fun to create one for her out of cardboard like this DIY toddler kitchen. So cute.

This is a few weeks old, but in case you haven’t seen it, someone replaced Donald Trump’s eyes with his mouth and he looks exactly the same. Baaaahahahahaha. Brilliant.

Those of you who know me in real life know that I would eat tacos for pretty much every meal forever and ever, so clearly I need this necklace and these earrings immediately.

I really enjoyed reading this piece on how to be the greatest antagonist of your own happiness.

This video of 500 years of female beauty in art gave me all the feels.

I need to make time to do this beautiful DIY botanical easter egg project.

These sandals though.

Have you come across any especially great links this week? What are your plans for the weekend? Robbie is back on tour with the band, but my sister is coming up from Indianapolis to visit later today and I can’t wait. She was in the hospital with us during my labor and Emmett’s birth, but she had to leave the next day so it’s been over two months since she’s gotten to hang with the kids, and I think Essley may be even more excited than I am. Whatever your plans, enjoy your weekend (and the rest of your Friday too!).
