Smurfin’ around Dallas – #StyleMuseMonday

Yes, I’m totally showing my age. But back in the day, everyone wanted to be Smurfette, she was awesome, all the dudes respected her… ahhh good times.

Anywho, when leaving the tournament in Dallas for a litle while to get a quick power nap at the hotel, we saw this crazy huge hat. So you gotta stop to take pictures there right??? IMG_2472

I so happen to have my Dorothy Perkins beautiful cobalt blue maxi dress on…


Which is lightweight, soft silky type of material…


I love the love the small gold statement piece at the neck, just a nice touch…

City girl in the Stockyards – #StyleMuseMonday

So, my daughter’s volleyball travels, brought us to Dallas, Texas this past weekend.  Typically, I try to take my mom to a few historical spots while we’re there. And she picks the Fort Worth Stockyards! IMG_2342               

Gotta see some longhorns if your in Texas, right?

Well, I can honestly say I did not choose an outfit fitting for my location, but excited to rock my lastest dress from Dorothy Perkins.

My Look:IMG_2336

My Dress is from Dorothy Perkins, strong material, but so soft, comfortable; with a hint of athe-leisure! You can find my Maternity Grey Wrap Hem Dress here, I wear a size 10 UK, 8 US…

My fantastic shoes is also from Dorothy Perkins. I kinda went out on a limb here, because I just was not sure how they would fit. But fit is true to size, so don’t worry! You can find the Black ‘Candle’ Pineapple Espadrilles here! IMG_2437

Dakota Suede Gladiator Espadrille Sandals

Not so Slimming stripes, lol – #StyleMuseMonday

So continuing my pregnancy chicwear debut in Indianapolis with Stripes! Embracing the bump so for once I’m not using them for their slimming capabilities.

I like how I look 9 mths pregnant, but I’m only 6 🙂



Still gray and black, I haven’t branched into colors yet, but maybe I’ll get a little Easter inspiration, lol….

My look is a stiped Jojo Maman Bebe a 
Side Gathered Striped Maternity Tops
Side Gathered Striped Maternity Tops which feels silky smooth on my occasionally itchy pregnant belly, is long sleeve which is perfect for a layered look and thick quality material, but not too heavy if you know what I mean.

My favorite Kimono cardigan also by Jojo Maman Bebe Knitted Charcoal Maternity Kimono

White sneakers: Puma from Off Saks 5th Avenue (super comfortable)  Puma’s Round Toe Lace-Up Sneakers

Okay, I promise to brighten up next week’s look even if the sky is gray… Stay tuned!!!




Gray like Indiana’s sky – #StyleMuseMonday

Sooo my daughter’s volleyball journey took us to Indianapolis.  And it was time for my pregnancy chic debut, lol… Sike, more pregnancy bump acceptance, since for 4 full days I would not be in scrubs.

So, despite the fact we were there to cheer, encourage my daughter and of course assist with the college recruiting process (there were a lot of big name colleges there and some were actually watching her!)… I had to represent for those preggo fashionistas:

So I checked ahead and it was supposed to approximately 60 degrees but raining. And on a gloomy day, its okay to blend in with a little gray of your own 🙂

So I hopped on a London maternity and children’s boutique called JoJo Maman Bébé -with roots in French nautical style, I heard of from instagram! As I read more about this brand, it is right down my alley, “supremely comfortable,” “fashionable and well made, but still affordable.” (direct quotes from their website)

First, I wanted a nice cardigan like sweater, that was of great sturdy quality, heavy but free-flowing for those occasional pregnancy hot flashes.


1st my outerwear … a Knitted Charcoal Maternity Kimono

2nd a maxi dress, with a little slit to show some of my nonexistent calf muscles, lol… this one is from Old Navy

…And if you want black I’d choose this Dorothy Perkins Black Jersey Maxi Dress !

3rd my rendition of the white sneaker trend, these ultra comfortable,  Puma’s Round Toe Lace-Up Sneakers

Near Indiana Convention Center

I hope you enjoyed this look! Check out next week, for my pregnancy outfit journey… And any advice for tall pregnant folk like me, I’d appreciate!
