Happy New Year Everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday and are enjoying the New Year so far. Mike and I took off the whole week in-between Christmas and New Years, which I had never done before. We didn't have any travel plans besides short distances to visit family and friends, which was amazing. We spent time with my extended family, celebrated Christmas morning with my parents and Christmas night with Mike's parents. We spent time with my brother and Mike's brother, hosted a small NYE party, and went to a 1st birthday party for the cutest little nugget. We ended up being incredibly busy every day so it wasn't as relaxing as I imagined but still such a nice treat to not have to work!
If you saw my last post, you'll know that Mike and I are expecting and are so excited! I plan to share my first trimester must-haves next week so if you're newly pregnant, make sure to stop by! Dressing has been getting harder and harder for me as time goes on which is obviously expected. I'm not "showing" yet and my normal clothes still fit but the pants are definitely getting snug so I've found myself in leggings almost any time I need to look presentable. Right before Christmas I stopped into H&M quick looking for a certain present and only walked out with this Cardigan. I love the length, the color, and the pockets! It's perfect for staying warm on a cold chilly day since it's essentially like you have a blanket on you at all times. The duster definitely has the ability to make one look larger, which when already feeling big, isn't necessarily the best, so I paired it with a black tee and black leggings to slim it down a little. I actually wore this outfit 4 times over the past week #noshame. While I couldn't find the exact duster online, I did link a few similar ones I'm loving below!
