Non-Maternity Maxi Dress

I am getting bigger by the day and the only piece of clothing that is comfortable for me right now is a maxi dress. I have been buying a ton of non-maternity maxi dress from T.J. Maxx by Max Studio. The dresses that have been gravitating towards either have an empire waist or are scoop necked t-shirt maxi dresses. I figure that I can wear these non-maternity maxi dresses after the pregnancy is over. I hate to spend more money on maternity clothing when I could be buying these non-maternity maxi dresses.

Transition Your Wardrobe from Fall to Spring

Transition Your Wardrobe from Fall to Spring using bright yellow accessories. Cranberry was a huge fall color that might have ended up in your wardrobe, but you don’t have put all your cranberry and fall clothing into storage this spring. Give fall prints like hounds tooth and your fall colors a spring refresher with a pop of color like a pair of yellow sandals and a yellow belt.

Nuance Salma Hayek

The Nuance Salma Hayek line is an exclusive for CVS/pharmacy. The Nuance Salma Hayek line was inspired by Salma’s grandmother, a cosmetologist who developed her own homemade beauty remedies. I really love how the all the products smell fresh and have so many natural ingredients. During pregnancy, I am extra sensitive to ingredient and smells. All the products had an amazing aroma that relaxed me.

Spring Trends

Maria is wearing a tone of spring trends in this outfit. My favorite trend is eyelet. Luckily, the Spring 2013 runways were filled with eyelets. Heavy hitters like Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, and Victoria Beckham all showed the delicate white eyelet fabric in modern ways. I have been a huge fan of eyelet since I had eyelet pillows on my childhood bed. My mother always said that eyelet reminded her of her mother. I was young when she died so there are very few things that remind me of her. Eyelet is one of them.

Runway Inspired Spring Nail Trend with Sally Hansen

Runway fashion always inspires my nail looks. I have been noticing that mint was shown on the Spring 2013 runways like Valentino, Claire Pettibone, and Donna Karen. Using Pinterest, I have collected minty spring trend inspiration on to my Spring Trends Pinterest Board.  GiGi New York came out with an entire collection of embossed python leather bags and accessories that are on my wish list. I purchased a pair of mint skinny jeans that I was wearing non-stop until my belly got too big for non-maternity jeans. Since I cannot wear the skinny jeans for the time being, I have to fill my wardrobe with mint in other ways. First, I bought my Kate Spade polka dot iPhone cover and now I purchased Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Mint Sorbet Nail Polish.
