white this way

There's just something so classic and simple about a white dress. It's always a chic look and in the case of this one since it's non-maternity it works for every stage of motherhood. Especially for that awkward postpartum phase when you don't want to wear anything too tight fitting.

pregnancy update | 27 weeks

Well friends, we've made it just about 2/3 of the way through this pregnancy. And by we I mean me because let's be honest, I've been doing all of the work over here.
