Verdant and Floriferous

Verdant and Floriferous

It all started with the pillow. Then I saw that silk top on the same day, and I realized I had been seeing a lot of florals against white and cream backgrounds lately. This is good news for those of us who like to decorate as we dress, which is not at all weird, right? Right.

  1. Claire Floral Pillow, Society Social
    How perfect would this floral be against stripes? Lovely against solid colors, too.

  2. Jules Flutter Tunic, Steven Alan
    The sweetest top for little girls.

  3. Equipment Kyle Top, Piperlime
    A pretty silk top to peek out from a blazer or cardigan, or to shine all on its own.

  4. Edgeworth Sage Glasses, Warby Parker
    They may not work for everyone, but I think green glasses could be a flattering color.

  5. Appeau Earrings, Anthropologie
    These are sort of goofy, as far as earrings go. Which is to say of course that they are fantastic.

  6. Ecru Florentine Writing Paper Set, Paper Source
    Perfectly plain and simple, with an unexpected envelope liner for punch.

  7. Floral Wreath Tea Towel, Terrain
    Dainty flowers to bring cheer to mundane tasks.

  8. Claire Floral Tablecloth, Society Social
    They only come in a single square size, but can be layered for longer tables.

  9. Birdsong Ring Set, Anthropologie
    Four rings to be worn stacked together, or separately.

Wardrobe Updates for Spring

I’m about halfway through this pregnancy now. As I grow, I’ve been sticking mostly to the maternity clothes I have from when I was pregnant the first time around with Eleanor, five years ago. Let’s just say… I’m not as excited about my wardrobe as one could be. Nordstrom Rack is now shoppable online, so I had some fun checking out the new site and putting together my favorite finds. I spotted a cute pair of straight leg maternity jeans, and below I concentrated on shoes, accessories, and jewelry. You know, the stuff that always fits.

Nordstrom Rack

  1. Sugarlips Long Sleeve Blouse
    Ever so slightly sheer, and with a mandarin collar.

  2. Eye Candy Los Angeles Green Rock Pendant
    I like the simplicity of jewelry that’s essentially a rock on a chain, with a little gold to hold it in place.

  3. Michael Vincent Michaud Round Stud Earrings
    The imperfect gold setting makes these interesting.

  4. Cole Haan Bellport Carryall Tote
    That punch pink is just so delicious, and perfect with a bit of leather trim.

  5. Bucco Valentony Gladiator Sandal
    They go with black and brown, the straps are great, and hello, stripes! For $27. So awesome.

  6. V Optique Pier Readers
    For those of you that only need readers (rather than glasses with a full prescription), these are a lovely shape.

  7. Harlyn Silk Colorblock Pocket Shift Dress
    The easy shape of this is so perfect, especially from the back. And how cute are those pockets?

  8. Dogeared Initial Ring
    I’d wear a stack with my kids’ initials, but I was chuckling thinking of what four letter words I might spell out, knuckle tattoo style.

  9. Vince Camuto Diamond Pattern Ring
    A big ring with big impact.

  10. Lucky Embroidered Square Scarf
    I am in favor of quirky details like the tassels, and the fabric is a gorgeous shade of pinkish red with embroidery.

  11. Hobo Lorna Crossbody
    Big enough to carry everything without being bulky, and the green is a fun color.

  12. Mixx Shuz Jane Ankle Strap Flat
    Yes to a bit of unexpected pattern at the heel.

Things sell out quickly, but new Nordstrom Rack goods for women, men, and kids are added to the site weekly, all at up to 70% off and with free shipping over $100. (Plus you have the option of taking things back to the store or sending them back by mail within 90 days, so returns are easy.) The sale events are powered by HauteLook and if you have an account there, you can use it for NordstromRack.com too. The shopping cart lets you add items from both sites, and they ship to the US, Canada, and Australia. And now that they’re online, it’s so much easier to keep an eye out for what’s new. I’d add that dress to my cart, but I think I’m already too big for it and it won’t be practical for nursing. I’m going to go for the scarf and sandals though! They should go a long way toward making my current maternity options a bit more fun.

Style: Sundial Skirt

I love this Sundial Skirt. Love it. I’m sorely tempted to buy it now and save it away for wear a year from now, when I ought to have a waist again after baby number three, but who knows what size I’ll end up at. (Smaller, right? Ha. Hahahaha.) So instead, I’m creating an outfit around it.

Sundial Skirt

I’d wear it as shown, necklace and striped belt included, but I wanted to put together a different take on it here.

Red/Orange Midi Skirt #makingitlovely

  1. Strike it Lucky Top, ModCloth
    My favorite blouse shape. Easy to wear, with a little detail at the neckline and sleeves.

  2. Ms. G Glasses, Rivet & Sway
    Such a good color, and a flattering shape.

  3. Givenchy Dahlia Noire Eau de Parfum, Sephora
    A new favorite. The notes as listed: pink pepper, mandarin, cedrat, rose, peach, cedarwood, sandalwood, vanilla, and amber.

  4. Say Yes “Yes” Necklace”, Kate Spade
    A small but positive statement to keep with you through the day.

  5. Daniela Bustos Maya Single Coin Necklace, Madewell
    A good layering necklace to go with the other.

  6. The Holepunch Transport Tote, Madewell
    A basic tote, punched up (literally) with a little detail.

  7. Sundial Skirt, Anthropologie
    Pretty pretty.

  8. Fores Bracelet, Tiro Tiro
    A delicate form that still carries some impact (and a bit of color).

  9. Nude Shot Vanilla Beige Nail Polish, Sephora
    The perfect done but not overdone color.

  10. Golden Hour Sling-Back Shoes, BHLDN
    Simple, with a nice manageable 2.5″ heel.
