Black, White, & Red

This will probably be my last outfit post before the “big day”.  I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago on one of those days where we had a break from the frigid weather (you can still see some snow melting on the ground).  

I was so excited to bust out this new light weight coat I bought at Zara on super sale back in January-it was only $49.99!  It didn’t quite button but I think I managed to get away with it.  You can pair red with so many different colors from soft grey to bright turquoise, but when in doubt you’ll never go wrong pairing it with white and black.  

What color do you like to wear with red?

HAPPY SATURDAY!  Hope you have some great plans for the weekend but if you have some downtime here are some of my favorite links from around the web.

  • This last month of my pregnancy has seriously sent my sweet tooth into overdrive.  I may just have to try this CHOCOLATE LAYER CAKE recipe this weekend.  It looks DIVINE! 
  • I never set out to have a “signature scent” but really the only thing I ever wear is LIGHT BLUE by DOLCE & GABBANA.  It seems to be the only scent that sticks to me and it’s lemony notes remind me of summers spent eating lemon ice pops by the beach in the South of Italy.  I'm always on the lookout for something new and plan to give these CITRUS SCENTS a try next time I am in Sephora. 
  • If you’ve been reading my blog you know that I subscribe to BIRCH BOX and love it.  It’s like my birthday comes once a month when I get that box full of little surprises in the mail.  You can imagine my delight when I came across this FOOD SUBSCRIPTION BOX called TRY THE WORLD !  What could be better than receiving delicious goodies from around the world straight to your home? This is the perfect gift especially for a new mom (wink, wink to my husband if he’s reading this). 
  • Maybe it’s the weather warming up but I’ve definitely had the shopping bug lately.  I’m trying to hold off as much as I can but the great sales on new arrivals are killing me. JCREW is currently running 25% off full price styles and an extra 30% off spring sale styles with code SHOPNOW.  They have a great PANT FIT GUIDE that details all the styles they carry.  
  • The weekend is always a great time for relaxing, reflecting and reading something inspirational.  THIS ARTICLE is a must read! 



SHOPBOP has been running their Friends and Family Sale all week and today is the LAST DAY! Use code SPRING25 at checkout and get 25% off almost everything (some exclusions apply.)  I’ve rounded up some of my favorites items that will be perfect for spring and summer.  

Since I’ll be post baby belly this summer I’ve been on the look out for nice one-pieces like THIS ELLA MOSS SUIT that has just the right amount of coverage and sass!  I definitely need to purchase a pair of THESE IPANEMA JELLIES that can go straight from the beach to dinner with this PRETTY MAXI DRESS which would look great worn open as a cover-up. Or if you prefer a more traditional cover-up option this JOIE TUNIC is perfect.  I would throw it over white jeans for a more dressed up look with these NEUTRAL SANDALS that will seriously “go with anything”.  You can never go wrong buying summer basics like this FEMININE TOP or these TORTOISE SHELL SUNNIES and the start of a new season is always a great time to clean out your makeup bag and replace it with a cute one like THIS.  I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Clair Vivier but if you haven’t let me introduce you to her super soft, simple and stylish bags like THIS TOTE with just the right amount of “french girl” flair. 

Now is also a great time to add items to your wardrobe that are trending for spring and summer like these HIGH-WAISTED JEANS or this HIGH-WAISTED SKIRT, this MINI BUCKET BAG, these FRINGE SANDALS and this adorable DENIM SKIRT .  Although they are current trends, they are also classic pieces that will make great additions to your wardrobe for seasons to come.  And at 25% off, you really can’t go wrong - but hurry this sale ends tonight!
