The Enclosed Lingerie Subscription Service Giveaway

Happy Friday! Such an exciting week for us shopaholics between the Shopbop sale (you can find my picks ), and now a chance to win some free goodies from the lingerie subscription service -The Enclosed.

I have enjoyed various subscription boxes in the past such as Rocksbox and Sephora Play, and am excited for a fun new subscription box with new goodies that are a fun and sexy treat for yourself.

My favorite part about The Enclosed, is that they are a green company and wanted their products to have the lightest environmental footprint possible while still offering a luxury high-end experience. All of their packaging utilizes recycled materials, and they pad the products with rose petals which are compostable and all-natural. Their hope is that you will re-purpose the petals by putting them in the included organza bag to make a sweet and all-natural sachet for your lingerie drawer.

Fall Dresses

Well hello Monday after an impromptu long weekend! I want to say thank you to everyone for all the sweet texts, tweets, snaps, messages, etc... checking in to make sure we were ok in the sunshine state in the wake of Hurricane Matthew. The eye of the storm ended up trekking more off shore and never made landfall here which made such a huge difference. I couldn't be more thankful for the minimal damage, and how fortunate we were to not even lose power. Buttttt...  I'm all stabby at the idiots on my FB who actually had the nerve to complain that the storm was nothing after all that hype. We were so fortunate and I'm forever thankful. After the mandatory curfews were lifted, my weekend consisted of game night with my fav neighbors, some shopping, dining outdoors, and final preparations for baby girl.


I'm sure it's no secret how much I love dresses, and I can't stop scooping up so many of my fall favorites.
Fall Dresses

Olive - one of my favorite colors for fall. I picked up the Leith Dolman Dress during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it's been patiently sitting in my closet waiting for it to cool down enough to wear. It fits over the bump, but I'm excited to see how it looks post-pregnancy with a pair of peep toe booties.
Flannel - Nothing says fall fashion more than flannel, and I'm obsessing over this Veronica Beard Ruched Shirtdress. I mean look at those ruffles!
Chambray - Everyone needs a great t-shirt dress, and this short-sleeve chambray number from J. Crew is one of my favs for fall.
Lace Up - Lace up tees were a favorite of mine through spring and summer, and I'm excited to bring that trend into fall with this cozy Madewell Sweater Lace Up Dress.
Turtleneck - I love how this BB Dakota Brandy Sweater Dress combines one of my favorite fall colors and a turtleneck to keep you a little warmer.
Fall Floral - Fall florals are everywhere this year, and this Leah Mini Dress is just so effortlessly pretty.
Off the Shoulder - I still can't get enough of the off the shoulder trend, and love that it's big for fall too. This Jason Off Shoulder Dress by Cupcakes and Cashmere is fall perfection.

And don't forget the fun accessories! I lived in these peep toe booties by Kristin Cavallari and Chinese Laundry last year, and plan on doing the same this year once it cools down and you can never have too many blanket scarves. Both the ankle booties and the blanket scarf pair great with most fall dresses to complete the look, and if you're in a cooler climate you can add a pair of tights too.

Coffee is always a good idea

I'm always a fan of fun graphic tees, and when I stumbled upon one that expressed my undying love for coffee I knew I had to have it. I proudly wore this tee to pick up the $3 grande fall drink special at Starbucks last weekend. Speaking of... to sound even more basic (at least that's not a PSL in the pic - it's a Salted Caramel Mocha w/ skim), has anyone been able to find the fall cups like they had last year?

October Home Stretch

I'm sure we are all thinking the same thing - how is it already October?! I've been waiting for October all year, because this is the month we'll meet baby girl. Time has flown by at lightning speed!

Since this weekend was pretty quiet other than celebrating our fav neighbor's birthday, I thought I'd share my few must have items that got me through my pregnancy.
Home Stretch Items

Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter - I cannot believe I'm saying this, but so far so good in the stretch marks department even at 38 weeks. I'm owing it to a combination of staying active throughout my pregnancy and slathering on the belly butter after I showered every night. It kept my skin moisturized, and I loved that it didn't have a strong scent and was a natural product without parabens, phthalates, and petrolatum. Win-win!

Coffee - a big pregnancy myth is that you have to ditch you daily dose of caffeine. I honestly don't know how I would have survived if this was true. You can safely have up to 200 mg per day (about 2 cups of coffee). My morning Dunkin and Starbucks runs or walk over to the Keurig are still something I look forward to every day.

High Rise Leggings - As you'll see below, I have lived in flowy dresses but for barre and yoga classes or weekly Target runs my high rise leggings comfortably fit over my ever-growing bump. My favorites were these Zella high waist crop leggings from Nordstrom and these high rise crops from lululemon. Seriously the most comfortable pants ever!

La Croix Sparkling Water - Even when I can enjoy adult beverages again soon, I'll still keep my fridge stocked full of these pretty slim cans. It was a nice treat aside from drinking water all the time, and super refreshing to enjoy while lounging in the pool.  They come in a large variety of flavors and are 0 calorie, 0 sugar, 0 sodium, and the best part by far is 0 artificial sweeteners which equals 0 guilt. I picked up packs of them at Target, where you can also find them on sale a lot plus Cartwheel deals.

Flowy Dresses - Other than the dress I wore to my baby shower in CT and for our maternity shoot I haven't purchased a single piece of maternity clothes. Instead I picked up several flowy dresses that were not only super comfortable (waistbands are not your friend while your bump is growing), but helped me look put together even if just running out for a bit. One of my favorites was this dress from Express that I loved so much I picked up in multiple colors.

**If you live in a colder climate, and it's winter time I'd suggest pairing flowy dresses or tunics with high rise leggings to stay comfortable. I tried the belly band, and it worked but it made me super hot since it was like an extra layer of clothing under my tops**.

Workouts - As I mentioned here, keeping up with barre and yoga classes throughout my pregnancy especially during the yucky months of the 1st trimester was not easy but so rewarding. No matter how sick or tired I felt before class, I was always so thankful that I forced myself to go and left feeling so much better.

Prenatal Gummies - Some women feel sick from prenatal vitamins, and I don't do well with nasty big pills so I've been chewing on 2-3 prenatal gummies daily since before even getting pregnant. Not only do they taste great, but they give me all the nutrients that I need to help support the growing baby. Target of course for the win with great prices, constant sales, and Cartwheel deals.

Things I didn't waste money on or improvised on:

Pregnancy Pillow - As I got about halfway into my 3rd trimester, sleep became more and more uncomfortable with hip and joint pain. I've heard women rave for years about pregnancy pillows which tend to take up a ton of room and are expensive for an item you're only using for a few weeks or months. I took notice of the king size pillows that sit on the bed more for decor than actual use, and decided to try them out one night and it was magical! They're longer than a regular pillow so they provided me with the support I needed on my belly and in-between my legs to relieve the hip pain.

Maternity Clothes - As I mentioned above, I've been living in flowy dresses which have been super comfortable and can still be worn once baby girl arrives. I love that I didn't invest in a bunch of pieces that could only be worn for a short time, and rather in items that I'll be able to continue wearing.

Changing Table - I read a lot of reviews that said it's a piece of furniture you'll only use for a little while, and it's easier to just purchase a changing pad with a grippy bottom and place it on top of a dresser that will grow with baby. This is exactly what we did, and I'm very happy with our decision.

What were some of your must-haves and what did you skip out on that others may swear by?

The Most Special Photo Shoot

Throughout my pregnancy I haven't kept up with bump photos, I've been slacking on writing in my pregnancy journal, and with the exception of this dress I haven't purchased any maternity clothes. But the one thing I knew I had to make sure happened was a maternity photo shoot with H to capture the end of the pregnancy before baby girl arrives.
