My go-to look this Fall. I love this jacket that I’ve been making sure my outfits go with said jacket, so I could wear it (nearly) daily. It’s a lot heavier feeling than it looks, and has a nice weight to it. It’s oversized and can comfortably fit a nice warm sweater on underneath. I’ve been pairing it mainly with black leggings and a black top. Oof, I love it. Love it.
I mean, the jacket doesn’t look like it’d be that warm, right? Wrong. It’s warm enough for an always cold person like myself and I’ve been known to wear it inside the house too, since it’s always so freezing indoors for some reason.

Y so serious.
Clearly working on my different poses lol. Toe tap, with my arms cozied up around me acting like it’s sooooo chilly here in California (actually, as a Canadian living here….it does get cold!).
I trimmed off my scraggly dead ends off my hair a few days ago. Also featured appearance: Alfie friend! Our sweet puppa.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
All black was my go-to for the past year. But it never really suited me as much as earthy tones does. So in the next few upcoming OOTDs I’m bringin’ it back. For now, enjoy an all black ensemble.
I also realized it’s much easier (obviously) to take my outfit photos when he’s napping.
Tank: Old Navy (they seem to bring this one back every year). I bought it in a size large and wore it while pregnant. Now I use
Leggings: prAna. These have lasted me 3+ years. I wear them at least 2-3 days a week, wash them in hot. Slapp’em in the dryer. Wash them in cold. Doesn’t matter, they don’t shrink, they don’t pill. They were a PR sample years back, but such a good piece. In fact, all my prAna clothes (which were mostly all PR sent/gifted) are fantastic quality that wash even better and still look brand new for years to come.
Bag: Neiman Marcus
Our baby has arrived! I’ve been taking a bit of social media break since he’s been here, to take in all those newborn feels to cuddle this sweet little one. He arrived on Monday February 5, a big boy weighing in over 10lbs, 22″ long!
Taking a mindful approach to what I’m doing these days. I’m somewhat on an internet/social media break, but definitely post a few times a day to my IG stories on snippits of our days lately. This newborn stage, the whole being a new mom/parent thing is unreal and I want to soak up every last ounce all without distractions from what *doesn’t* matter. If that makes any sense. Many have reached out with congratulations and many more asked about how Alfie is dealing with being a big brother. It only took a few short days for him to become fully used to the fact that baby isn’t going anywhere and now he’s more interested in him, than us! Any time Alfie barked at baby he was removed from the room. So he caught on quick.
As for how I’m feeling, I’m (knock on wood) surprisingly great! Doc said I was “all-belly” (ahem…regardless of the rude comments I’ve received) and I asked for a belly band at the hospital which I’ve been wearing a few times a day, it helps make you feel secure when walking around, and it also I suppose you could say…suck everything back in. It’s interesting watching it all go sorta back into place. Haha. Every 3 days or so I take a photo of my belly to track the progress. I’m not obsessed over it, but it’s super interesting to see how quickly things have been squishing itself back into place. It’s wild to me. As of day 10 I was in my pre-pregnancy jeans (and they were too big!), and day 14 I was at my pre-pregnancy weight. I know this isn’t the case with everyone’s post-partum, so I’m happily surprised how well things are going on my end.
I don’t know if this sounds smug, or not — but I’m being honest with you. I thought for sure I’d hate my body after baby, that I’d require so much help around the house and be almost immobile, as everyone was telling me it would be so difficult. But it’s all been fantastic!
I’ve been a little lack-luster with my maternity wardrobe in the third/final trimester. I haven’t done many bump photos or even wrote about the pregnancy stages that I did in my first, and second trimesters. Living in the same clothing and rotating different colours of the same long-sleeved tee’s I’ve been feeling the most comfortable in. So it definitely felt good to shop my wardrobe again, and also receive some new goodies from prAna’s spring line (#mindfulprAna). So I thought I’d show you a little peek at how things are looking right now and over the past two weeks:
(And if you’re interested in shopping on prAna’s site, I have a 15% coupon code for you: MPSKS18 Note that it won’t work on sales/markdowns)
I know a lot of people enjoy documenting their birth stories on their blogs, but I’m not interested in sharing that with the world. I’ve mentioned this before, but we’re pretty private people despite me having a public blog and Instagram. Just as much as I’m not sure that I’ll be posting many photos of the baby’s face. I mean, I’m being mindful of it all – he’s gonna be his own person, and who knows if he even wants his pictures plastered all over the internet as an infant. That’s not to say I won’t post any, ever. But at this point in time I’m just leaning towards the “no” option lol.
Thanks for reading! Have a great rest of your week :)
