Oversized button-ups are always a classic look IMO, and throughout pregnancy, it’s been no different. Worn with maternity jeans, leather pants or over slip dresses, they have been one of my go-to staples. And from what I’ve been told, will remain a staple throughout breastfeeding (if I’m able to make that happen – fingers crossed!).
I’d love to know more about your clothing preferences during breastfeeding. What did you find worked for you? Any suggestions?
Let’s be totally honest with one thing here; the thought of pushing a baby out of our tiny little lady region can be daunting. Or better yet, panic inducing.
Yes, every person to ever walk this earth has arrived the same way. And yes, our bodies have the knowledge deep within on how to give birth (fact: a women in a coma can birth a baby) just like they know how to grow a baby, but for a first time mom, it can still seem unfathomable.
Getting a cold sucks no matter when in life, but while pregnant, it’s even worse. I’ve been as careful as possible to limit my exposure to those suffering, and also to take it head on when I start feeling it coming in. These things have helped!

The moment I feel a cold coming on, I diffuse a few drops of oregano oil and lemon oil in my diffuser. The oregano helps fight viruses and is antibacterial, while the lemon is an awesome decongestant that also gives me energy when I’m feeling down.
It’s no secret that I’m hooked on clean beauty – especially when it comes to skincare. My medicine cabinet is chock full of the latest serums, moisturizers, face masks, you name it. And while I love trying everything new and seeing what works or doesn’t, it can get slightly overwhelming. It’s almost like keeping up with the skincare Jones’ and needing to try every single product that I hear rave reviews about. But, so many new products are not only clogging my mind, but I don’t think my skin thrives off
It’s no secret that since my wellness practices had to change a bit during pregnancy, that I’ve taken on some new ideas that I hadn’t always been into. Things like crystals, saging, and clearing energy – more on the woo-woo side, but TBH, it’s been fun exploring. And even if I’m not feeling physical change from these things, there’s definitely a mental aspect that feels…good!
Recently, a friend taught me about clearing your space and energy, and since I want to bring the baby home to the best environment possible
Throughout my pregnancy, I bought very few maternity pieces. There were a couple pairs of maternity jeans (I really like the way Paige fit and looked), a few items from Hatch and other than that, I stuck to shopping mostly fast fashion while splurging on a few outerwear and vintage pieces that would fit post-pregnancy.
While shopping at ZARA, H&M, Reformation, etc., I chose fabrics and cuts that worked on my changing body and gave me room to grow. One of those early purchases was this Reformation jumper, and for
