Happy Eve of Christmas Eve, everyone! Originally, I was supposed to work today, but I decided to take a half day since Matt had the day off–this is our last Christmas as just the two of us (plus Millie), so we’re trying to make it as special and memorable as possible.
Speaking of spending time together, we recently took a spontaneous trip into the city for brunch and a quick photo shoot. I’m obviously not opposed to taking pictures here at home, but sometimes you just can’t beat all the details you’ll find in some of the older buildings in a city.
One of my favorite online stores, PinkBlush Maternity, recently contacted me to review some of their maternity clothes in a blog post, and of course I said yes! I picked up this lovely pea coat during their Cyber Monday sale, and I’ve loved the style and quality, plus the fact that it fits comfortably over my bump! Now that it’s getting chillier, I needed a nice, warm coat that actually buttoned.
I loved browsing through their cute maternity clothes! One piece I chose was this stylish and comfy shirt. It’s just one piece, which makes things simple, and nobody can tell the difference! I don’t know about you, but I struggle with layering, trying to get everything lined up just right, so I love it when someone has already done the work for me.
The sweatshirt material is incredibly soft, which is super important to me right now because my giant belly has been really itchy. I wore it over skinnies, but it’s definitely long enough that you can throw it over a pair of leggings.
This color would look so great with a pair of brown boots, too bad I don’t own a pair–oh wait, I DO have a pair of brown leather boots, I just can’t get them zipped up over these giant calves that came out of nowhere!
Don’t worry folks, we took these pictures in front of offices that were closed for Sunday, I wasn’t creeping on anyone’s front stoop!
PinkBlush also has a regular store, so there are also plenty of fashionable options for all you non-pregnant ladies out there! (And for myself as well…one day.)
I love the red plaid because it looks so festive at this time of year, but can still be worn before or after the holidays. I’ll very likely be wearing this with my eatin’ pants on Christmas day!

And now, for #JAMPackedHoliday! Kati recently featured Mumford and Sons on her playlist, and it made me realize how much I love listening to them at this time of year. I remember when I first started listening to them, back in the fall of 2010, and I did play their album, Sigh No More, over and over again right around the holidays. This album remains one of my all time favorites, and while I could get real moody here with the song choice, I’ll leave you with something a little more upbeat: “Roll Away Your Stone.” What’s your favorite Mumford song?
Have any of you ever shopped with PinkBlush before? What are some of your favorites?
