basic_invite_bshower6

The weeks have been speeding by (check my current baby bump on Instagram!) and I can’t believe it’s already time to start planning my baby shower. Like, are we really here?!?! Just yesterday my lil boo boo was the size of a strawberry (around week 10) and now we’re reaching head-of-lettuce status!  With all that’s been going on in my life: looking for a new apartment, getting settled after our Paris honeymoon (pics/vids coming soon!) and overall work life; ordering baby shower invitations were the last thing on my mind!

Slaying For Fall with Ivy Park

iveparkfallcollection

Now that I’m 6 months pregnant (can you believe it!!?), I find myself reaching for my most comfy pieces. For instance, today I’m wearing a cosy grey sweatshirt with Kanye West’s face on it (long story lol) paired with vibrant tropical Versace x H&M leggings (not exactly Fall, but it’s laundry day lol). When you’ve got a growing belly, it’s all about wearing what feels good. BUT being a fashion girl, my clothing choices need to be 1 part comfy and 2 parts stylish. Which brings me to the Ivy Park Fall Collection, brought to you by Beyoncé.

I’m loving this new collection of fun colors and bold prints: 2 things I’ll always be obsessed with. In between eating my eating breakfast this morning and taking my pre natal vitamin, I found myself on topshop.com, zeroing in on my faves for Fall. If you’re into looking fly while working out, or just looking for some stylish yet comfortable Fall pieces, this post is for you. Or you may be like me: pregnant and in love with anything stretchy : )

Surprise! Obi and I are having a baby! : ) This is the reason I’ve been MIA for the last few months- my first trimester was a bit rough (nausea, fatigue). But I am well into my 2nd trimester and feeling great! Obi and I shot this with my photographer friend Shawn Walker 2 weeks ago in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The weather reports were so up and down that we didn’t know whether it would downpour or be sunny. Glad it ended up being a beautiful day! The shoot was fun and I had a great time announcing our surprise on IG on Saturday. Thank you for all the comments, DMs and well wishes! Truly warmed my heart! Obi and I are so excited about this next chapter of our lives : ) Thanks for coming along on our journey.
