The Ultimate Closet Staple

MQ_blackshift1MQ_blackshift3MQ_blackshift4MQ_blackshift5Dress (sold out; found similar): Brandy Melville – Shoes: Just Fab – Bag & Sunglasses: Nordstrom B.P.

If there is one thing that every woman needs in their closet it’s a loose black swing dress! Seriously, I wear this one from Brandy Melville all the time. I’ve worn it all throughout my pregnancy too! It was loose enough to fit my 41 week old baby bump lol. It’s soooo versatile. You can dress it up or down. Oh, and I just had to take a spinning picture cause I wanted my dress to flare out… I was cracking up haha!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! xo

Ok let’s be real here… I just had a baby almost 2 months ago so I am by no means ready to rock a bikini lol. Thank goodness for stylish one pieces! I’ve linked a few of my favorites that I’ve been looking to get for what’s left of this summer. If I had to choose one, I would choose #4!! I mean… a denim swimsuit?! Yes please!

Which one is your fave?!

Breastfeeding Accessories

Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 12.03.09 AM(Me at 41 weeks pregnant to 7 weeks postpartum; posted on my Instagram for #transformationtuesday) 

Landon has been living off breast milk exclusively for almost 2 months now, yay! He loves to eat and is growing so fast. When I was breastfeeding Scarlett during her first year, I always forgot which side I fed her last and she was always grabbing on my shirt or sometimes my hair while nursing. I learned my lesson this time around and discovered 2 accessories that solves those problems!

MQ_BF1MQ_BF2MQ_BF3

First is the Nurselet which is a velcro bracelet that comes in a ton of other cute prints and has dual purposes. One purpose is serving as a reminder for which side to feed next. During Landon’s early weeks, it was easy to know which side was next because obviously it was just way bigger than the other lol. Now that my supply has adjusted to his feedings, sometimes both sides feel the exact same and I can’t remember which is next (especially during the wee hours of the night). This bracelet has been a huge help. Not only does it work for that, but it also holds your shirt up during feedings or pumping sessions! LOVE. Use code “NURSELETQUEEN” to receive 15% off your entire order on their website!

Second is my nursing/teething necklace from Baby Bees and Peonies! They’re so cute and available in different colors. I have the black one also which goes with most of my outfits since I tend to wear black! Lol. Landon likes to hold on to it while nursing and when he’s old enough, he can use it as a teether as well.

Mamas: do you have any breastfeeding essentials/accessories that I should know about?! I’m always down to try new things that will make my life easier 🙂

This post was in collaboration with Nurselet and Baby Bees and Peonies. As always, all opinions are my own.

China Glaze – “Flip Flop Fantasy”

MQ_cgflipflop3MQ_cgflipflop1MQ_cgflipflop2
If there’s one thing I love during the summer, it’s obnoxiously bright colored nail polish! Haha. I love them because they’re in your face and scream “SUMMER!” They’re the type of colors that I only wear during this time of the year. This color by China Glaze is everything. I love it so much that I will bypass the fact that the formula is extremely streaky lol. I normally use the CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat but for the hard to manage nail polishes, I use Seche Vite since it’s thick and can mask almost every imperfection!
Are there any neon polishes I should get before the summer season is over?! Let me know!

Matching Set

MQ_leith7MQ_leith3MQ_leith5MQ_leith4MQ_leith2MQ_leith6Top & Bottoms: Leith – Shoes: dv – Sunglasses: Nordstrom B.P.

As much as I loved dressing up my baby bump, I am having so much fun playing dress up with non-maternity clothing that definitely wouldn’t fit a baby belly. I’m currently 1.5 months postpartum. I love this Leith matching set from Nordstrom. It looks like a romper but it’s 2 separate pieces! These pieces are sold separately and they are both super versatile on their own. For example, I could wear the top with high waisted jeans or a high waisted skirt. And the shorts, I could wear with a different crop top. Then of course, you could wear them together 🙂

Oh and those taupe lace up wedge sandals are from Target! LOVE them!
