Happy Monday, friends! So sorry I have been MIA lately with posting. This 2nd pregnancy is NO JOKE! I have been SO exhausted to say the least. Props to all of you mamas with multiple kiddos because I seriously don’t know how you grow a baby with that many toddlers in tow. Luckily, I’m in the 2nd trimester now and feeling somewhat human again! And don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining one bit because I feel extremely blessed and am loving it, but it’s definitely tiring! 🙂
Okay so now let’s talk about this outfit.. I obviously put it together around these new wedge sneakers from Payless! I found a very similar pair here that I almost bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I just couldn’t justify spending the money because a.) we’re trying to be better about budgeting and b.) I hardly leave the house now days and let’s be real… when I do I’m normally in flip flops or tennis shoes. I must say though- these $30 Payless dupes are a great alternative for the $119 Caslon wedges from Nordstrom. Oh AND with the code ZZFALL20 you can get 20% off right now! I’m not sure how long the sale is going, so you better snag them up while you can! They also come in grey suede but of course they are sold out in my size. 🙁 *PS: I did size up in these. Normally I wear an 8, but I got an 8.5 and honestly, could probably do a 9 with thick socks so I would suggest sizing up at least a half size (if you wear thin socks normally).*
Let’s talk about the jeans.. My Sister-in-Law was in town a couple weeks back and we ventured out to Target while Mimi kept the boys. Going to Target kid-free now days seriously feels like a mini vacation! We strolled past the maternity section and Lindsay (My Sister-in-Law) said ” those are pretty cute maternity jeans” I thought “heck yes they are and I need them!” I looked at the price tag and only $35 – in the basket they went. I was already having guilt on my way to the register trying to justify it in my head that I REALLY needed these… Then I thought “okay i’ll just take them home and think about it.. I can always return them.” Much to my surprise, when they rang up guess what? ONLY $10!!! Say what?! I knew it was meant to be then! And I have pretty much lived in these in the last 2 weeks. And sorry guys, unfortunately, they aren’t available online so you will have to check your local Target to see if they have them! Here is the exact jean, but it’s a different wash and its full-price online.
I know I’ve shared this t-shirt before on my instagram and in this post here, but it’s honestly one I will have on repeat this winter. It would be so cute layered with a white, black, or grey sweater and booties going into the fall. It comes in 6 other colors in addition to the one I’m wearing and I love all of them! You can’t beat the price for only $16 and it’s great quality. I sized up in this and got a large since it’s non-maternity so I have room to grow, but I would normally wear a medium in this particular t-shirt. The flannel around my waist is old. I purchased it from Gap Factory last year for $20, but I found a similar option that I love here.
My backpack is also old unfortunately. I purchased this Steven by Steve Madden backpack from Nordstrom Rack so long ago. You know me though, I found you guys a very similar inexpensive option you can check out here and here.
That’s it for today! I hope you are all having a great Monday so far and I promise I will be better about posting more great finds this week so stay tuned!
