Field of Dreams… Maternity Edition

Happy Memorial Day all!
I hope you all are enjoying your day! I’m just maxing and relaxing today and as I come to the last leg of this pregnancy I find myself doing that a lot. The nursery is finally coming together (pics later) and with 7 weeks left I’m getting really anxious. My husband has been remarkable through it all, so major shout out to him <3!!!! So I have to let him share what he thinks about this experience…. Be nice babe lol
Lol! Hey guys! This is Kenny, Christia’s husband. Thank you for the opportunity to share my experience about the pregnancy. It really has been an awesome experience, filled with joy, nervousness, excitement and anticipation. 
The time has really flown by. It seemed like just a few months ago we were jumping around the house when we saw the pregnancy test results were positive. And then, next thing you know I was feeling the baby kick in her belly! Now that’s when it got real, real. 🙂
It’s crazy to know that in a few weeks we’ll be holding our baby boy in our arms and you know we’ll post a million pics and blog alllllll about it.
Thanks babe! Hope you all enjoy our pics taken by the amazing up and coming photog Davah Lynn. Outfit deets below!

Rocking Chic and Transitioning

It was such a beautiful day this past Sunday and I felt a little edgy.  I’m still adjusting to my ever growing body and some days my bump is bigger than others, but it’s quite a journey and I’m excited to see where it leads.  I’m heading into my 14th week in this picture and still able to fit many of my regular clothes.  I love the leather details on the leggings, the fur detail on my vest made me feel luxurious and my shoes are just killer.  I love rocking them! Hope you all are having a wonderful week and embracing the transition in your life.  The thing about transitions is that it makes us feel uncomfortable.  Sometimes we loose site of the beauty on the other side.  I know that’s how I felt this past week, but I believe in beauty in exchange for ashes.  Which simple means out of the rough spots or ugliness in our lives, if we are transitioning for the better, there is beauty on the other side.  So keep going, don’t give up or quit.  This transition will only make you better!

Help! I’m pregnant and my clothes are weird!

So, here’s the official announcement! Kenny and I are expecting!!!!!!! Yay! We are so excited especially after the devastation of a miscarriage the first time around. ….So thank you sweet Jesus:)!  The first couple of weeks I was fine, but when I hit the nine week mark…oh it got real!  It got a little harder to get dressed in the morning and especially for events.  My clothes were a little snug or just didn’t fall quite like they used to.  I wasn’t big enough for maternity clothes and I just didn’t know what to do.  So, stalking google pictures of preggo celebrities became my past time.  My style icon, Rachel Zoe, did it best for me.  We have very similar styles which is that boho chic and she found a way to translate her regular style even while pregnant.  I thought it was AMAAYY! All of the maternity clothes, that I saw I hated.  There were too many stripes or it just wasn’t my style.  I visited a few maternity stores and asked many questions.  Do pregnant woman really need all of those gadgets? Belly bands, waist expanders, etc?  I got some great information too from the women over at Motherhood at the St. Louis Outlet malls.  They were very helpful and schooled me on maternity clothes and how you’re the same size the clothes just make room for your growing belly.  That made me a lot more comfortable, but I wasn’t ready to buy just yet.  My husband and I ended up going on a road trip to Nashville to celebrate our one year anniversary and while there we went SHOPPING!! My favorite word.  Well any way i had a inkling to go into Old Navy (hadn’t been in this store in years).  I walked in and saw flowy tops that were my style and ON SALE.  I was so excited.  These were tops that I would wear even if I weren’t pregnant.  I went to the back and saw the maternity section and fell in love with the maxi dresses.  They were fitted, sexy, and still there was room for the baby bump and more importantly ON Sale.  I talked to the manager, because I wanted those dresses in every color, but he said that there were no more, because they were making room for the Spring shipment.  So I immediately went online and there were some great stuff there as well.  I’m feeling a little better about this pregnancy journey.  When you look good you feel good, even if you’re nauseated and puking or not puking just nauseated (that sucks by the way lol:).  During my shopping spree I also found a few cute tops at Ross Dress for Less and  Stylish dress from H&M.  If you’re preggo, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on clothes you will only wear for a few months,  these are three places that I totally suggest that you visit, because even thought it’s only a few months you can still look fly!  What about you? Where do you shop for great maternity wear?  

So what to wear during pregnancy?  Well the following will be some of my staples:  Maxi dresses, Cardigans, leggings or jeggings, riding boots, flowy tops, tunics and heels.
