Style Me Pretty Challenge Week 1

Day 1 - Stripped Shirt, Boyfriend Jeans, Ankle Boots, Long Necklace

I did the exact opposite of what the challenge encourages us to do. I wore yoga pants and an old t-shirt all day. Normally this wouldn't really bother me, but I left the house and I have this one little rule about leaving the house looking like a scrub. That rule is "Don't leave the house looking like a scrub." Now you may be thinking, "Don't be too hard on yourself" and "We all have those days", but do you go out with crusted food on the front of those yoga pants and beet stains on the front of your shirt? I didn't think so. LOL

Day 2 - Military Jacket, White Shirt, Black Jeans, Tall Boots, Plaid Scarf

So here is what I planned to wear, but I didn't make it out the door (I completely missed the military jacket part, you will have to wait until it comes around again to see mine). Scarf (Joe), Shirt (Thyme), Jeans (American Eagle), Boots (Aldo). I think I would have liked this better with the coat. I wasn't a huge fan of the white top. . . Not sure why. Now the test. Can you figure out why I didn't wear this to work?

How about the huge borscht stain I got on it! UGH! I was carrying a container down to the freezer before work and one of them leaked on me. I was not impressed. Here is a closer look at the boots (these are the ones I bought from my last post). I like the colour and am getting used to how tall they are, but am still on the fence. . . 

 Here is what I did wear:
This was my original idea for the outfit when the post came out, so I wasn't too disappointed that I got to wear it. Shirt (Thyme), Boots (Miz Mooz).

Please check out some of the other girl's outfits. This is our largest group yet. Thanks to Deena for creating the logo and organizing!

  1. Look at that bump! Adorable. I love the outfit for the second day. Both of them!

  2. love that scarf on you!!!
    AND how cute is your bump?!?!?!? Adorable!

  3. Love both outfits and love seeing more maternity options! IY's more fun than I thought to dress the bump!

  4. when i was pregnant (my baby is 7 months now), it seems like spills were magnetically attracted to my bump. i was running out of shirts too quickly to change every time i spilled. :)

  5. You look great in the outfits that you put together for the challenge! I think white shirts have an unnatural ability to seek out stains...especially if you have somewhere to be!

  6. Don't we all have those days... I like the swap out of the gray tee. This is my first challenge... been a lot of fun so far.

  7. Borscht and baby bumps go well together.

  8. I like the grey! They match your boots and scarf really well. And I love the plaid scarf. It looks like it's black watch plaid!

  9. I thought that was a heart sticker for your pregnancy! lol

  10. You look so cute pregnant! I love your scarf and boots - very pretty!

  11. Ok, so I thought that stain was a little heart on the representing the baby's heart!!! LOL Loving your bump! Looking fabulous mama!!!

  12. Great scarf! ;) Maybe I should have got both?? You look amazing - especially your bump!

  13. LOVE those MizMooz boots! WOW!!

    And you look fantastic. :)

  14. You are just precious. That is the cutest baby bump I have seen since my daughter was pregnant. So glad to link up with you this challenge.

  15. I couldn't do this challenge simply because I NEVER get around to making my bed for pictures. I can't believe that's over half way with baby bump #4 ... You look fantastic!!!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
