Scenes From Our Weekend + Two of my Favorite Outfits

Oct 7, 2013

We had a jam packed weekend this weekend. Plans everyday, so it flew by and boy was I tired by Sunday night (and a little pissed that Breaking Bad was over so we had nothing good to watch).

Friday night I went out to dinner with Sam,  Caycee and our friend Kyle who flew in from NYC.  I met Kyle through blogging so it was so fun to finally meet in person!

I wore my new favorite dress out to dinner.  Ladies this is the perfect dress to wear while pregnant and its non-maternity so you can wear it after too.  I am so getting another color in it.  It is under $100 (such a steal) and so comfortable.  I am going to wear it well into Fall with my BB Dakota Jasper Leather Jacket.  The back is super cute too.

necklace is vintage from my grandmother and shoes Tory Burch Emmy Flats

We ate dinner at Indaco a fairly new restaurant here in Charleston and it was really good.  We ordered several apps and pizzas to share.  I wish I had a taken a picture of the crispy chickpeas because it was one of our favorite apps.  We also had the prosciutto and burrata that were awesome. Then we had the Brussels Sprout and Margarita Pizzas.


We had a lovely evening.  Good friends and good food is always a fab time!

Saturday I took my little man to the Farmers Market.  He is full on ready for Halloween.  He insisted on wearing his Pirate costume.  He is gobbling down a doughnut from Glazed our favorite stop before the Farmers Market.

Later that afternoon we had a Birthday Party for one of Sterling’s friends.  I found the most adorable mustache paper at TJMaxx, I was pretty happy with my professional looking wrap job:)

It was way out in the country and all the kids had so much fun.  There were jump castles, hay rides, and food galore.

Matt and I even got a few minutes of alone time out by the docks.

 I ate entirely too many Lucky Charms all weekend.  It is my latest pregnant obsession, why are they so good?

Sunday I participated in the Wine, Women, and Shoes Charity Event.  Such a fun event for a great cause.  Had a blast with my ladies Amy, Chassity, and Caycee.  I walked the runway modeling two pairs of shoes and didn’t fall- huge sucess!

Wore a fitted Vince Shift dress to show off my massive bump.  Because at this point there is no hiding it, you just have to show it off.   The Vince Dress is great pregnant because it is so stretchy.  It really is the perfect black dress to add to your closet pregnant or not.  Such a timeless and classic piece.  I can’t tell you how many times I have worn mine.

ok, that’s all I have got!  Have a great Monday!
