Maternity Dress from Beachcoco

When you are 8 months pregnant you really need your maternity clothes to pull through for you. That’s why when it comes to this new dress from Beachcoco I am absolutely in love.

This form-fitting dress is long enough to where I’m not constantly hiking it down, and it is so soft and comfortable for this growing belly. I love that it has long sleeves, and is the perfect dress for fall or winter. This is definitely going to be my go-to dress for the upcoming holidays!

Twinning With PinkBlush

maternity-wear.jpgmaternity Shirtmommy-and-me3.jpg

A few months back I received this adorable Peach Floral Striped Knot Tie Maternity Top from PinkBlush and absolutely loved it. It is such a great fit and has been perfect for my growing belly during pregnancy. It’s not only cute but so comfy. I wear it around the house and out and about as well.

Then I stumbled upon this adorable Mauve Floral Striped Toddler Swing Dress for my little mini, and I simply couldn’t resist buying it for her! We bought her a size 3T since she’s just about that size, and it fits her great. It’s a great length and is so soft and comfortable.

She certainly loves matching her mama, and naturally, mama loves matching her right back!

Comfy and Ready for Fall

Sweater: TJMaxx | Sleeveless Cardigan: Dresslily | Jeans: Nordstrom | Boots: Target

This is the hard transition when my brain is into everything fall, but the weather is not. The mornings here in New York start off slightly chilly, but it’s usually a comfortable 70 degrees by the end of the day. That is why I love outfits that can suit both temperatures, without making me freeze or sweat.

I am currently crushing on sleeveless knit cardigans like this one from Dresslily. It is so thick and soft for these fall temps, but can still keep me comfortable if it heats up. It is out of stock right now, but I will keep you posted when it comes back in.

Right now at Dresslily you can use the code BRITTA to get 12% off over $25. They have tons of other adorable tops and cardigans that are perfect for this transition from summer to fall.

Enjoy your fall weather, friends!

Why I Love Wearing Graphic Tees

Processed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 preset

Over the last few years graphic tees have really taken off. There are so many inspirational, hilarious or just plain awesome tees that people can choose from.

If you know me at all you know I am all about comfort. If I am home I am in sweatpants and a t-shirt. That’s why I was so happy to stumble upon CorkedBrew. They have so many amazing shirts that seem to fit me TO A TEE (see what I did there?)

Their name refers to tees about wine (corked) and coffee (brew), and I sure do love both of those. Wine and coffee tees are not all they have though. Some other tees include holiday themed, funny quotes, mom tees, TV themed, sports themed and so much more.

Let me tell you why graphic tees are my jam.

They allow you to express yourself.

Whether it’s your favorite band, TV show, sport, drink, or anything else, these tees allow you to share with the world what you love, or what you want people to know about you.

They are a great conversation starter.

People love reading graphic tees. Sometimes conversations even start from your shirt. Even just a simple, “OMG your tee is awesome!” while you’re waiting in line is worth the purchase. You will very quickly see who your fellow Game of Thrones fans, Harry Potter nerds, and coffee lovers are. Your graphic tee may even make someone else’s day.

They give you something to wear without thinking about an outfit.

Is it Sunday? Pull out the football tee. Is it the Halloween party? Pull out the Halloween shirt. Maybe my new goal should be to find a graphic tee for every day of the year…

They go with everything.

If it’s a lazy day at home you can wear a graphic tee with sweatpants. If you’re running errands with your kids, #Momlife graphic tee and jeans it is. According to this shirt they even go with yoga pants. Graphic tees can be worn with everything.

Comfy cozy.

Let’s face it. They are comfortable, and that is all there is to it.

You are supporting an awesome business.

When you buy a graphic tee from a shop you are supporting a small business. They want you to not only be comfortable, but love the message that you decide to spread with the people around you.

If I haven’t convinced you yet, checkout CorkedBrew’s page to find the graphic tee that fits you. They have tons of styles and themes to choose from, and I know you will find tons that you love.

A huge thank you to CorkedBrew for partnering with me on this post. I absolutely love my graphic tees, and they fit perfectly. All opinions are my own.

How Online Daily Boutiques Work and Where I Purchased My New Favorite Fleece

*This post contains affiliate links.

Processed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 preset

A few weeks back I stumbled upon a site called Groopdealz. Groopdealz is an online boutique store with tons of adorable things to purchase like clothing, accessories, home decor, jewelry, baby gear, and tons more. They are similar to many other boutiques except for two big reasons. First, they have tons of sales all the time. Pretty much everything is marked down. Deals, deals, DEALZ!

Another difference with Groopdealz is that they are what you would call an online daily boutique. Instead of just being run by one brand or company, Groopdealz has included tons of different sellers onto their site. That’s why you have so much to choose from! This also means that these sellers only have a limited amount of time on the site. Sellers are given a certain amount of days to sell and promote their product, but after that it is taken down.

I bought this fleece that was originally $54.00 for only $34.99, and let me tell you it is worth every penny. It is so amazingly soft, and perfect for fall and winter. I had the opportunity to choose what thread I wanted to use to get it monogrammed as well, and I love how it turned out.

HERE’S THE THING… if you’re interested in buying it, you have to act now! The other day I went online to show my friend this fleece that I had purchased. I was going to send her the link, but it wasn’t there! I searched Groopdealz page by page, and it just wasn’t there. I figured I was lucky to get it while I could because it was already gone. WELL GUESS WHAT, when I went back on their site today it was BACK! If you think it’s something you or someone you know would enjoy, get it today.

The fleece seems pretty true to size. I typically wear a small, but didn’t want the fleece to be too small so I ordered a medium. If I was to go back and buy another one (hmmm, maybe black now?) then I would order a small because the medium is a little long. One more thing to mention is that I ordered the cream color. In the Groopdealz website picture it looks a little darker than it actually does it person. I love the color in person more than I do online because it’s very light, which is the look I was going for.

This would make a great monogrammed Christmas gift for someone who likes to be comfy cozy. Maybe even a little Christmas gift for yourself!

I also purchased this extremely comfortable V-neck tee from Groopdealz that fits so perfectly. I went back to order another and they were gone, but you know I’ll keep checking back to all their cute clothing just incase!

Don’t forget to snag that fleece today before it’s gone. You won’t regret it!

Cute Halloween Costume Ideas With DressLily

You guys, it’s October! That means that Halloween is about one month away. Every year I go through the same process of figuring out what to be for Halloween. I can never decide, and I search all throughout Pinterest and Instagram. I put it off until Halloween reaches, and I still end up Amazon priming a silly unicorn onesie.

Yup. Happy Halloween.

I’ve thought of an interesting idea. Instead of purchasing a whole costume, it would be nice to buy something that I can use as a costume once, but still continue to wear in my normal, non-Halloween life the other 364 days of the year.

For example, this orange dress I wore to a wedding was my inspiration. Someone at the wedding told me it reminded them of Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, so that’s exactly what I may use it as if I don’t end up buying one of these other lovely dresses.

I found more than 2000 styles of fashion women’s dresses at Dresslily! Bandage, club, bodycon, chiffon, vintage, lace, bohemian dresses etc. Which is your favorite for a Halloween costume? Here are a few ideas I’ve come up with.

There are many different options for Minnie Mouse! They have so many adorable red and white polka dot dresses.
