Accessorizing Your Basics

Did anyone else experience the WEIRDEST weather ever this weekend? Yesterday we drove up north for our first baby shower at my in-law's house. I am not kidding when I say that we drove through the worst weather I have ever seen - snow and ice packed roads for 3+ hours straight, including a steady snowfall the entire time. Today we arrived back home in Albuquerque to calm blue skies and the snow had melted to the point where you wouldn't believe me if I told you what it looked like here yesterday. Thankfully I was able to get out and take some outfit photos. I have been slacking in this area lately thanks to our crazy weather and well to be honest, crazy life events. But I feel like I am back now with nothing to stop me and it feels good! 

Today's outfit is pretty simple and gets most of it's appeal from the accessories I am wearing. I love this Old Navy top, but found that from the side I just look huge and not pregnant... not cute! So I decided to use my favorite leopard belt to add a little more dimension to the look. I also received my fourth Rocksbox this weekend and am super excited that the oh-so-coveted Loren Hope cuff came in my box! I have been eyeing this beauty for so long and I love it just as much in person as I did in photos. If you have not tried out Rocksbox, now is the time! You can also try it out totally free for your first month with the code LINDSAYXOXO1. If you have tried Rocksbox, what is your favorite piece you've received?

  1. I love the denim top! Super cute. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your encouraging comment. Being a little more open about myself is something I'm trying to strive for more on my blog.

  2. This type of look has been done many times before but it is always polished and classic. You look adorable. I like your smoking flats and bracelets. Also, while pregnant, I loved belting my shirts and cardigans over the belly. It is a cute and easy look for a mommy-to-be. Oh and by the way, how cool that you and your best friend are pregnant at the same time. That happened with one of my best friends and I. She has a boy 4 weeks younger than Vivian. =)

  3. thank you Ashleigh! I should definitely follow suit - it can never hurt to be more transparent :)

  4. I totally agree Ada! it gets challenging finding new and different styles while pregnant at times... I feel like I live in black pants and jeans, so accessories are my only way to switch it up! aw that is so cool about your BFF too! it's been really fun sharing this together with her :)
