Weekend Recap x 2

Hello all! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  I can't believe July is practically over. I'm still not sure how that happened.
I haven't done a recap in a while so I figured it was time to do a little catch up. (Two weekends combined into one post!)

Last weekend my husband and I took a little mini vacation/baby-moon in Palm Springs. (Won from Ellen!) We had such a fun time and met some new friends. Once we arrived, we knew we wanted to grab lunch. So of course, I yelped some placed nearby that were different than what we are used to getting. We tried a handcrafted burger place called Eureka. It was pretty tasty.  After eating we were craving some good ice cream so were starting to head to get some when a light came up on my husbands truck that we had never seen before. Something about a system failure, so we took it in to a Ford dealership right away! Luckily they were still open when this happened and we didn't end up being stranded in Palm Springs! We were there for a good two hours and luckily they were able to fix the issue.

By then, we just wanted to get back to the hotel to enjoy some pool time.
We ended up staying at the pool a while before we went out to dinner at a place a friend recommended called "The Nest." It was pretty good, but a little overpriced for the taste. I think they are trying to make it more of an upscale restaurant. My husband got the Filet and I got a Sausage pasta. Both came with salad and dessert. We chose the chocolate mousse.
We made it an early night because we knew we wanted to enjoy the pool the entire next day.

We woke up and had breakfast in the hotel lobby and then headed to the pool.  I of course had to get a lovely Virgin Pina Colada! It was so yummy!  We went back to the room around 5 pm to get ready for dinner. Hubby treated me to Mastros. My favorite! I haven't wanted steak at all this pregnancy, which is weird to me (I also like it cooked medium rare and since I can't have it prepared that way I just can't have it any other way hah) So I opted for the Salmon. Which was fantastic by the way! We had creamed corn, brocolli, and mashed potatoes and of course finished it off with the amazing buttercake!

We really enjoyed ourselves and had a nice relaxing getaway that was much needed!

This weekend was spent planning for my baby shower coming up in two weeks!
My cousins came over and we went over details and made a few items for the party.
We also shopped for some gifts for the game prizes.  I sported this beautiful dress from PinkBlush on Saturday. I love the navy color and lace details and that it comes with a belt to show off the bump. (Officially 31 weeks today!)

This dress is so comfortable--Especially in this heat! I love that I will be able to wear it after having the baby too! It's the perfect dress for on the go!

Another PinkBlush Find

I just booked a maternity session with a local photographer and was on the hunt for the perfect dress. We get two outfit changes, so I know I will be in need of another dress so any suggestions are greatly appreciated!  I knew I wanted at least one of my dresses to be long and flowy. I love the style of this dress from PinkBlush. (Can you tell I am obsessed with them?) They just have too many dresses that are so cute! It's hard to just pick one!

I found this colorful number and knew I had to have it! (It can also be worn after baby- which was a huge selling point for me.) Also, I will be able to breastfeed in this dress too! Another win-win! I loved the bright and fun colors, and since baby girl is due in October, I wanted something with longer sleeves to keep warm in the cooler months, yet still be cute!

Navy Abstract Floral Dress 
One thing I was worried about and usually am when ordering long dresses, is the length. Because I am 5"4 and on the shorter side, it's hard to find dresses that fit perfectly in the length. This dress was not even an issue! I can wear flats (as you can see) and the dress doesn't drag on the ground. I can even switch it up ad add some wedges or heels and it will still be the perfect length! I just love everything about this dress.

They are also having some awesome Summer Blowout sales right now! 
You can get 20% off Sitewide using code: SUMMERSTYLE or 25% off ALL dresses going on now! Code: GETDRESSEDUP (valid for 2 more days)

Shop PinkBlush Maternity Dress

Remember reading my last post regarding me being on the hunt for the perfect Baby Shower dress? Well, not only did I find my dress (more on that later), I ended up finding a few more maternity dresses that I couldn't live without. One of my favorites I came across is this beauty:

Ivory Floral Print Fitted Maternity Dress
Ivory Floral Print Fitted Maternity Dress

The colors in this dress are flattering for every skin color. I am not tan at all right now, and was worried the white in the dress would wash me out, but the floral colors really made the white pop and looked amazing against my skin color! One thing I have been concerned about while shopping for dresses is comfort. This dress is so comfortable; the material is soft and stretchy which will easily accommodate my growing bump. (And we know this baby is growing!) The length is long enough to feel confident even with my growing bump, that way I won't have to worry about it riding up in the next few months as I continue to grow this beautiful miracle.

What I love most about this dress is that it can be dressed up or down. I recently wore it for my husband and I's Wedding Anniversary date night last night and it was the perfect dress for the occasion.  I know I will be wearing this dress this summer to keep cool from the crazy hot California weather too. 

PinkBlush not only has dresses, but they have regular everyday clothes as well! Seriously the cutest trendy online boutique! And they don't have a hefty price tag. I personally know how hard it is to come across cute maternity clothes and with PinkBlush I have no worries. I know I will find something that I love and cannot live without. Also, you get 10% off your first order by signing up for their e-mail subscription! (Of course you can cancel this at any time.)

Have you ever shopped at PinkBlush?  If so, what was your favorite item?

Baby Shower Outfit Ideas

With my Baby Shower fast approaching, I've realized I still need to find the perfect outfit!
Since it will be in the hot part of summer, I want to make sure it's comfortable and cool.  I love the long Maxi dresses and skirts but since the weather is supposed to be so warm, I'm sure I would be more comfortable in a shorter dress. I am really into the lacey dresses and also florals. (And Pink of course since she is a girl!)

1. Harhay Women's Sleeveless Lace

2. Hello Miz Lace

   3. Hello Miz Floral

I love how the first one is sleeveless, and can also be worn after baby girl arrives. It's loose enough where I'd still feel comfortable wearing it, whereas the others I may be a little self conscious with them being more form fitting.

Summer Dress

These aren't necessarily maternity dresses, but they would totally work! I love the summer fruity dresses! How fun are they?

Flirty Florals

 The above are not necessarily for the Baby Shower, but they could totally work! I love the stripes! Found on (My favorite!)

I've also been obsessing over everything on Pink Blush Maternity. I remember coming across them before I got pregnant, and thinking "Wow! These are super cute for Maternity clothes!" So I knew I had to save them for future reference. I have a hard time deciding which are my favorites, it's hard to pick just one!

One / Two / Three / Four
One / Two / Three

As you can tell, I am leaning more towards florals than lace. Since I wore a lacey dress for the Gender Reveal party, I think I want more of a floral one for this occasion! Classy, Comfy and Cute! But Pink Blush also has some beautiful floral dresses too!

I think I am also wanting to have pink in the dress, since the Baby Shower colors are Pink, Gold, and Grey. Once that's picked out, next step is finding shoes! Any suggestions?

Also I just found out Pink Blush has 15% off Sitewide, use code SUMMERDEAL at checkout.
