A Maternity Shoot on Turtle Beach

A Maternity Shoot on Turtle Beach

Photography: Dennis Akers – DAPhotoSpot.com Location: Turtle Beach at Siesta Key, FL Details: Dress – Free People via Nordstrom Rack // Kimono – Band of Gypsies via Nordstrom Rack Truth? I didn’t think that I ever wanted to do a maternity shoot. Don’t get me wrong, I was beyond excited to welcome a little girl into the world but pregnancy was ROUGH for me. On top of the thyroid/hormones struggle, it’s crazy how disjointed your own self image can become and I just wasn’t sure if I felt up to smiling, let alone showing off my bare belly bump for pictures with a stranger!…

Cozy Winter Style with Old Navy

Cozy Winter Style with Old Navy

  Details: Old Navy Sherpa Coat, Sweater, Scarf, Flats & Crossbody – c.o. and on sale at 30% off + free shipping! Even though the holiday season is usually full of festive and bright outfits, you’ll find me wrapped up cozy winter style like this all winter long. There’s just something I love about bringing different neutral tones together to create a holiday look that’s just as comfortable as it is stylish! I’m so used to bundling up with a heavy black winter jacket, but to break out of a style rut even with outerwear, I opt for a fun jacket that…

Holiday Sweater Weather – Gap Factory

Holiday Sweater Weather – Gap Factory

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I’m so excited to share today’s holiday sweater weather post with Gap Factory!   Details: Gap Factory sweater (c/o) // H&M wrap coat // Shoedazzle boots (c/o) // e.l.f. lipstick (c/o) // Target hat (similar) // Coach Borough bag During the holidays (and well into spring!) I rely heavily on fun sweaters as my go-to piece to style for most festive events.  And this holiday sweater tunic from Gap Factory is my idea of the perfect piece; a loose fit through the hips for layering over jeans and sleeves just long enough to cover my knuckles. It was completely…

Forest Green Midi Dress

Forest Green Midi Dress

Details: H&M dress (in-store only) // Aldo pumps // e.l.f. lipstick // Aldo bracelet stack Please excuse all the bump cupping in the photos of me in this forest green midi dress, but the further into pregnancy I venture, the more unaware I’ve become of my hands! I’m sure it’s a habit most soon-to-be moms pick-up somewhere along the way, but apparently mine have found a comfy new home just above or below our growing baby. But I don’t mind because now that I’ve popped out further, Baby Brann is on full display at all times.  This midi dress from H&M is…

Pregnancy Post: November Update

Pregnancy Post: November Update

As promised, today kicks off the very first pregnancy post series for November! So that I can one day look back and recall (with vivid detail) the crazy weeks spent cooking up Baby Brann, each month I’ll document what I’m loving / hating / everything in-between. I’m well into my second and on the way to my third trimester, so have become increasingly aware of the many changes my body is going through. Thankfully my thyroid meds have been managing my symptoms well enough, so I’m having more good days than bad. And finally, FINALLY!, I’m enjoying some parts of pregnancy – namely how active…

Weekend Keds

Weekend Keds

Details: Keds sneakers // H&M leggings (similar) // Target t-shirt // Forever 21 coat (similar here, here & here) // Coach bag I haven’t had a pair of Keds on my feet since elementary school, but I have to say, I LOVE these damn shoes! Feeling kind of old to have remembered the first time that Keds were cool, but alas, I like them even more the second time around. I surprise even myself because I’ve been a Converse girl for years. While I enjoy sandal weather and the after-work pedis that go along with them, flats are my favorite kind of footwear.…

Old Navy Style: Poncho Cape

Old Navy Style: Poncho Cape

Details: Old Navy Poncho (c.o) / Old Navy Midi Dress (c.o) / F21 Heels (similar) / Aldo Necklace Oddly enough, I’ve actually been looking forward to fall so today I teamed up with Old Navy to highlight one of my favorite ways to dress for cooler weather – the poncho cape! Before delving straight into heavy winter jackets and scarves, a poncho or cape is the perfect layering piece to incorporate into your wardrobe. Throw it on and go! I find myself heading to Old Navy at the turn of every season because I’m guaranteed to find versatile statement pieces like this windowpane checked…

An Announcement

An Announcement

An announcement and good news! The Bloggerella hasn’t become just another defunct hole on the internets, and I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. Very much the opposite in fact, and I’m back with even more good news to share: Rob and I are expecting our very first child!  …still need to pinch myself. We’re having a baby. Holy crap! One of the things I’ve loved most about writing The Bloggerella, is that it’s slowly become a digital diary of my adult life. Granted, almost every entry has been focused on personal style, but life was fervently sprinkled throughout and every…
