Maternity Style



one // two // three // four // five // six

If I'm being honest, most days I can just stay in my pajamas (one perk to being a stay-at-home working mom).  But on the days that I have meetings or get out to run errands, I still like to look put together (without breaking the bank on maternity clothes that I'll only wear for a few months). 

To me, the best things to splurge on while pregnant are jewelry and shoes.  Those are things you can (hopefully) still wear after baby is born.  With that being said, here's my errand outfit for the day. Pardon Remington's photobomb and our unmade bed :)

I got the top for $6 during a promotion (it's now $10--still great) and the jeans are on clearance for less than $25!  Here are the rest of the pieces:

one- The Rebel Pendant by Stella & Dot is one of my daily go-to pieces because it adds a little flair and can be dressed up or down. 

two- I've had this watch for six years now, and I still love it. 

three- Today is the first day I've worn this tee, and I can already tell it will be a favorite throughout the remainder of my pregnancy.  It's comfortable and flattering!

four- These coral jeans can make any outfit fun and the color is perfect for summer.

five- These Nancy Studs by Stella & Dot are another daily favorite.  Simple and classic.

six- I actually got these flip flops at the end of last summer, but they are back!  The leather strap and gold color dresses them up from a standard flip flop, and they pair well with any outfit.  Plus, they're currently on sale for $32.

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :)


Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print.


A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos.

An antique baby basket helped house the gifts.
The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee.
The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar. 
And of course no shower is complete without a little something sweet. These b…

Planes or Pearls? Gender Reveal Party

On Friday, June 28th, Jon and I headed out to see the gender of Baby Reutter.  Jon wanted to find out as soon as possible, and I wanted to wait to be surprised with everyone at the reveal party the next day. So we decided that he would find out and be the one set up the "big reveal."  Baby Reutter didn't want to cooperate on the first attempt but after some cold water, walking around and sweet patience from the ultrasound tech, we got the "money shot."  I'm not going to lie, it was a bit torturous at first to not be in the know with Jon, but after the first few hours, I was good to go and so excited about the surprise for the next day.  Here we are about to head out to the reveal appointment.
Now for the reveal party on Saturday...As mentioned before, I wanted a unique theme for the party.  Since Jon is a pilot, I thought planes would be a cute idea for a boy.  For the girl, I thought of pearls; they're sweet, feminine and also happen to be my birthsto…

Giraffe 1st Birthday

Over two months later, I'm finally getting around to posting on my nephew Cohen's first birthday!  Because he was born just six days before Christmas, it was important to my sister, Meredith, to have a party to make him feel special, separate of the normal seasonal celebrations.  And I'm always up for a planning a good party!

Since Cohen was little baby, he has loved giraffes.  First introduced with the paper mache bust hanging over the changing pad in his nursery(here), my sister says he's been a fan ever since.  Using that as the inspiration, the party planning began.  Meredith found an invitation she liked at Tiny Prints and thus the color palette of green, yellow and brown was established.


Cohen wore a monogrammed yellow chevron coverall on the big day, and the cheerful pattern was also used throughout the party.  To create a prominent backdrop on the fireplace mantel, we covered a remant piece of beadboard with chevron fabric.  It made a big statement with little…
