On June 7, these lovely ladies threw hubby and I a beautiful Baby-Q. It was a guys and gals afternoon of food, drinks and celebrating Baby Srdic. If you’re thinking about having a couple’s get together for your baby shower, I’d definitely recommend it. There really is no reason to leave the guys out of the fun! The decor was all baby, but we had plenty of beer, burgers and music to entertain the gents. I’m not huge on baby shower games so we kept it low key with a fun station where people could write us funny messages for those late-night diaper changes. We’re very lucky to have such great friends to celebrate these life moments with!

As for my outfit, this was my first time ordering from Rent the Runway and I was so pleased! I figured it was somewhat of a risk to order a dress 7.5 months pregnant, but I’ve been wearing lots of non-maternity maxi dresses and since they send you two sizes, I took the plunge. Plus, you can read plenty of reviews and see photos of girls who have rented the dress before and that gives you a pretty good idea of how it will fit you. The dress was so beautiful and shimmery in person and I ordered a pair of matching earrings to go with it. I could have gotten the long since my bump shortened it a bit but it ended up looking great with a pair of beautiful flat sandals. I would absolutely order from Rent the Runway again for a special occasion.

And speaking of special occasions, stay tuned for photos of my family baby shower! I’ll be posting all about the girly affair soon.

{Wedding Wednesday} Coral Wedding Inspiration

I’m crushing on coral weddings. Coral has been a hot color for a few years, and while it may not be the Pantone color of the year, it’s still a pretty popular one! And, its coming into the wedding scene. Bright, feminine but not pink enough to scare off the gents, it’s a beautiful color…

27 Wedges Under $100

When it comes to spring and summertime shoe shopping, it’s all about the wedges! For whatever reason, I can be extremely picky when it comes to shopping for wedges. I don’t like wedges that almost look like flatforms and all-white wedges make my stomach churn. There needs to be some kind of ankle strap situation…

Image is Everything? You could say that in fashion and beauty, “Image is everything.” But is it really? Would you photoshop your images to look more model-like? If so, what’s the difference between that and say, coloring your hair? Or wearing shapewear? Where does that line exist between getting a little help and “fabricating reality.”…
