the half of the week is done and we are looking on the bright side. It is supposed to snow tonight so I am not sure about that. Still have to get my tires changed and all my big winter jackets are getting pretty tight with the bump so I am not prepared at all.
Orange has always been a favorite color of mine so I was delighted as I found this comfortable knit sweater. I combined it with a pair of black leggings – slowly getting a problem on the pants front as my belly is getting bigger from day to day. Or at least I think it does.
The snake print trend has gotten bigger throughout the year and I am so happy I snagged this pair of snake print boots at last years Black Friday sale. They are my favorite pair and I love to pair them with dresses as well as with pants.
I have a bunch of stuff to shoot tomorrow so hopefully the sun is coming out. I really need some light over here for taking pictures and also for my mood. It has been gloomy all day everyday.
I am back with another Fall fashion post today as they slowly come to an end and we dive into Winter / Holiday wear very soon. I really can´t wait to plan festive looks for Christmas time but I am really sad Fall is almost over. Somehow it is the shortest but best season weather and clothwise.
I have gotten this dress a long time ago I think it was the beginning of Summer at a Zara sale but wearing it without a cool and sophisticated plaid blazer jacket just didn´t look right.
So now that we have got this right I added a pair of hazelnut suede boots and one of my favorite bamboo handle bags. It is the perfect Fall look for the weather inbetween and it also has a bright pop of color mixed with earthy Fall hues.
Holiday content will be coming soon to the blog and I will probably make a holiday shop tab to make it easier for you to read and shop all things Christmas related.
The weather has been super gloomy and rainy so I haven´t had a real chance of shooting content but I hope the end of the week is starting to get better, otherwise I am already a little behind and that makes me really mad but when you are dependant on the weather you just have to wait.
Do you love to pair the earthy colors of Fall looks with vibrant tones or are you a neutral girl ? Let me know.
another week has started and that means we are getting closer to Christmas which I am very excited about. I started to deck the halls and I am not even half done but that´s fine. My tree is up and ready and that is the most important piece of Christmas decor to me. Also my 20-week ultrasound appointment is next week so I can finally see our baby again.
With all the excitement for everything baby around here I have also ordered some pregnancy related books to inform myself and keep me informed throughout the “journey”. I know that there are tons of apps too, but I am a book kind of girl. I need paper between my hands – same goes for my to-do lists.
Pregnancy books I got so far
Bringing up Bébé // Tells the story of an American woman who gives birth in France and also raises her child there. Comparisons of American and France ways to look after children and what´s important in the different countries. Really interesting to read cause the differences are huge on many points.
What to expect when you´re expecting // My holy grail guide I study from week to week to see how far we are along in size and weight and also what symptoms could hit me next. Holds a ton of information also on the birth itself and after.
The Whole 9 Months // I got this mainly because it has a ton of information on nutrition and easy recipes which are healthy and delicious to cook while pregnant.
Let´s be honest, aren´t we all a little dependant on amazon. It´s just because they carry everything you need and so much more so it is no surprise I got all of my pregnancy must-haves off of amazon.
All the products I am sharing above have helped me a ton in the beginning and ongoing of my pregnancy. You aren´t allowed to take much to comfort yourself so some other things to distract you it is.
In the end evey woman has to find out for herself what is the most comforting or needed item as every pregnancy is different but this is a little article to guide you into the right direction.
Pregnancy book // This was the first book I ordered and I have to admit it is super informative. The reading is great and I like a lot that is has a lot of further chapters for after you have given birth. For me a must-read but I am going to share the other books I got in a separate post.
Pant expansion // A well needed piece for the strange weeks between needing maternity pants and your normal jeans. I have used them a ton and they will be quite as useful after giving birth. They come in a pack of two and in three different colors.
Magnesium // I had lots of ligament pain throughout the whole time I have been pregnanct now and my gynecologist recommended taking magnesium cause it would help to stretch and it has worked out really great. So I am definitely going to take this until the end as it ensured for so much relieve.
Nursing bra´s // Not need those at the moment, at least not for nursing but I some books I have read say that these are a great comfortable and underwire free option if your breasts will get really big and want to wear a bra for support at night.
Jersey dress // This gorgeous jersey dress wasn´t a pregnancy buy in particular. I have found it in the early stages of my pregnancy and it still works great with the bump so I got it in a few other colors. Currently available in 8 with short and long sleeves and for under 20 Euro definitely a great piece to wear pregnant or not.
Pregnancy pillow // The most comfortable pillow I have ever owned came in yesterday and I already love it. It is super soft and so supportive (feels like a hug) for your pregnant body in terms of sleeping (haven´t slept good for some time now and it probably won´t get any better) and resting. Florian also already approved it and I have a feeling that he will be using it too when I am not there. It comes in 5 different covers and I have the gray velvet one.
Pregnancy workout dvd // I have ordered this weeks ago and never came around using it until a few days ago. Since I am still going to my line dance class I only do the arm workouts but they are still hard. In my opinion you don´t have to be super sporty as long as you stay as active as possible. I hadn´t been cleared for sports until my 16th week appointment. It is what it is.
Accupressure wristband // Heard a lot about the accupressure points on the wrist and with its ability to ease nausea so I got this set of wrist bands on amazon but I have to admit I did not notice any difference. The only things which helped against my nausea were sleep through it or try to eat small amounts. Other than that nothing really worked and I just had to wait until it got better on its own.
Burt`s Bee´s body oil // Awesome product! The first body oil I have ordered and I have used it every day since my bump started to show. It prevents itching and I haven´t gotten a single stretchmark. Of course there is still a long way to go but so far so good. The smell is amazing and so calming and a little goes a long way.
Is there anything I have missed and helped you so far ? Or is there anything I should add to my list and try?
