Baby Blue Shift Dress + Black Accessories

Shifting My Way Dress c/o TOBI || Suede Choker, Silver Midi Ring, Open Circle Ring c/o Nickel & Suede || Classic Sheffield Silver 36 mm c/o Daniel Wellington || Combat Boots (sold out) || Volcolm Fedora (sold out) 

 Light blue is a color I don't wear very often so when selecting items to style from TOBI I decided I wanted to try something new and out of my comfort zone. Shift dresses and all things baby blue definitely fit the criteria (; This light blue shift dress from TOBI fits like a dream. I love that it is flowy (perfect for the growing bump).  I think it is slowly becoming a tunic since my belly keeps growing, I will have to style it as a tunic later on in my pregnancy!

This is my first style post featuring TOBI so be sure to stay tuned for parts 2&3 in the next couple of weeks! I have picked out some other amazing items to showcase on here. Also, I can't forget to mention that NEW CUSTOMERS receive 50% off their first order! Isn't that amazing?! I highly suggest checking out their tops, blazers, and maxi skirts (they have so many cute options in these categories right now)!

I also want to take a moment and talk about Nickel & Suede! I absolutely love their unique jewelry. Most of the jewelry they carry is leather! I absolutely love that choker necklaces are in again and have been wearing this lovely suede choker so much lately. The necklace and rings really added the perfect finishing touches to my date night look. I will be dedicating an instagram post sharing a closer up look at these pieces later this month so stay tuned for that (;

Celebrating Dads w/ Crocs

Dad's Wearing: CitiLane Roka Slip-on's in Black
Mama's wearing: Leigh II 2-Strap Wedge in Bronze
Z's wearing: Kids' Croc Bump It Shoe in Black/Oyster

Father's Day is this Sunday, can you believe it? Today I have teamed up with Crocs to discuss fun ways to celebrate the special dads in your lives.

Crocs sent us some amazing shoes for our outing and they are so very comfortable! I love that Crocs offers a variety of styles now. You wouldn't guess that my wedges are Crocs now would you? These shoes are amazing and I love that I have a new dressy shoe I feel comfortable wearing pregnant. We all love our shoes.

For our special activity this particular evening, we took Z to a park a played "monster" aka tag which is one of his favorite games. We absolutely love playing with him and getting some fresh summer air right before the sun sets is always a great way to start a special evening. Afterwards we grabbed a few burgers and watched a movie as a family before bed. There are a variety of activities and acts of kindness you can do to celebrate the men in your life.

I would love to hear how you plan on celebrating Father's Day this year. Please comment below with your plans if you wouldn't mind sharing (;

Teal Dress + IG Giveaway

25.5 weeks pregnant and every week that passes by I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is going by. I won't be one bit upset if baby boy decides to cook in my belly the full 40 weeks since I need all the time I can get to prepare for his arrival (; I have been living in dresses these days and this "Tent Dress" from Passion Fruit Fashion is definitely a favorite. I love the color, fit, and that it works for both pregnancy and postpartum. It also comes in black, yellow, and orange if teal isn't your color (; My only wish is that it came in short sleeved options than that would be perfect since it's starting to get unbearably hot here in Utah.

I love that Passion Fruit Fashion offers a variety of gorgeous LDS modesty standard clothing. They have a bunch of gorgeous skirts, shirts, and dresses that come in a variety of colors and patterns. They even offer dresses and skirts for little girls (ages 3-12), how neat is that?
