Nursery Inspiration

Although my baby is almost 3 months, I still have not completed the nursery. Which I guess is a good thing since I'm moving in a few weeks. I planned to co-sleep with the baby the first few months, so I didn't see the point of completing the nursery. Also due to travel, I wasn't able to be home and work on it. However now that things are finally more settled, I'm excited to start working on it. I'm glad I waited because I feel like I know Nathaniel's personality better now and what he'd like in a nursery.
 I love the neutral colors, I'll probably stick to the same color theme. 
I'm loving this round crib. I've looked at the Stokke one and love that you can wheel it around, but don't know how practical it will be since by the time I transfer to a crib I'll have to use the biggest setting and that won't wheel through a doorframe. 
I love this colorful gallery wall. I currently have a gallery wall of wedding pictures in my living room and Nathaniel stares at it all the time.
Also loving these framed images from Restoration Hardware. I'll definitely be ordering some for the nursery.
Love this closet for storage ideas.

I'd love any tips you mama's may have on deocrating a nursery!

PinkBlush Maternity and Postpartum Fashion

I wish I had found Pink Blush earlier in my pregnancy because they have such flattering maternity wear. (which we all know is so rare) They also have great nursing items as well! I'm obsessed with their maxi dresses, they make nursing so easy and the floral print hides any milk stains. (I'm sure all you mama's can relate) You can also wear them throughout pregnancy as well as postpartum. Here are some of my favorite outfit picks.

Nordstrom Fall Sale Picks

It's finally starting to feel like fall here in Vegas. These are some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Fall Sale. I LOVE the rabbit fur vest, I purchased it last year and wore it all the time. It looks great on it's own or under a leather jacket, soo versatile. I also have the lace dress in white and black and it's seriously so flattering! My favorite maternity jeans are also on sale (there's a non-maternity version as well) I'm also loving the boots in the first row, they look exactly like a dupe of the Stuart Weitzman boots that everyone is wearing this season, but at a fraction of the price!  I ordered both boyfriend jeans in the bottom row as well as all the workout tops. With breastfeeding boobs, I've outgrown all my Lululemon tops and don't want to invest in a whole new Lululemon workout wardrobe for this temporary period of time. These Zella tops are inexpensive and great quality! I can't wait to hit the gym again. I'll be doing a Postpartum post soon!

A throwback to when I was 38 weeks pregnant. I never got around to posting these pictures. This was one of my favorite maternity dresses once I got huge! (I have it in 2 different colors) The dress is a scuba material and is super comfy and kind of sucks everything in. 

Dress: Asos (Similar here and here  both under $25, also LOVE this one ,this one and this one) Shoes: Christian Louboutin (Similar) Sunglasses: Tom Ford Necklace: Chanel (Similar)  Bag: Hermes (Similar
