Reader request…Jamie-Rae!

Today’s request comes from Jamie-Rae, she wrote me…

”¬†The event is an outdoors/country summer wedding, a “jeans only” wedding actually – fun right? Here’s the kicker, I’ll be approx 7 months prego at the time, right about the stage of pregnancy where I’m verging on feeling like a spectacle/wanting to kick the next person who asks if I’m carrying twins, haha! Looking forward to your advice! “

I have TOTALLY been there Jamie!!! (three times!!) so I 100% get it. My best advice is to pick clothes that will be comfortable. End of Story. And maternity clothes are SOOO¬†fabulous (ugh) that there will be so many choices out there. Oh, who am I kidding. Unless you want to spend an arm and a leg, the choices are pretty¬†limited and not at all fun. My style during pregnancy was to stick to basics (and only buy stuff that I would wear EVERYWHERE) and then add some fabulousness with accessories. And by accessories I mean earrings, boots and purses. Because there was no way rings were going to fit in the middle of summer, and I soooo did not want to wear necklaces to draw ANY attention to how GIGANTIC my girls were during pregnancy. (hahaha…maybe I’m not the best person to be replying to this request, I am starting to sound bitter!)


I threw a few looks together for you! Have fun with the accessories and be comfortable, everyone there is going to think you look adorable anyways!! ūüėČ

Some STYLIN’ gypsies!!!

I am LOVING the Junk Gypsy series

Serious love.

Like, I am starting to save my pennies so I can have them come up here and do my WHOLE HOUSE, kinda love!!!! (or maybe that would make for an AMAZING episode?!! HGTV are you listening?!)

But almost more than the decorating, I am DIGGING on the girls outfits!!!¬†¬†Check these out…

(sorry for the poor quality, I did some fancy photography with my iphone and laptop…not so hot…but the best I could come up with!)

And since I am a bit obsessed with stuff like this, I begged Jolie to let me in on their style sources! Most of the jackets they picked up DURING shooting, because they had to have new outfits for all episodes/moments…and in a pinch, they found most of their fabulous jackets on ebay¬†and they are mostly Free People…leave it to the gypsy girls to find a fab deal even in a crunch! Inspired, I went on the hunt and found all of these fabulous deals…
