I don’t have to say that an outfit post was long overdue… I am finally feeling comfortable in my own skin and learning how to dress my baby bump. I am not a fan of buying maternity clothes and it tends to be more expensive. To me is the same as normal clothes, but just a size bigger, unless we are talking about jeans or pants. So that is what I have been doing, buying clothes a size bigger and making sure it will fit me later on when the belly is big. I was struggling so much because I felt I needed to change my style to be able to fit into clothes, so it has been a learning process. Dresses are a favorite, probably any pregnant women will agree with me on that. Comfort is a most, yet keeping your own personal style.
I have been wanting to share a beautiful accessory with you all. This lovely bracelet from Larimar Bliss is one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I have. I love gemstones and the lovely colors is what attracts me about them. Gems stones also reminds me of home, living in the Caribbean. Larimar Bliss is made in Dominican Republic. The stone is turquoise and blue veined with white strokes, the aesthetic that Larimar Bliss stones are characterized with. I also learned that gemstones benefit pregnant women, like anxiety and calming nerves. You can learn more about it here.
I promise I will get back with more posts for you guys!

Hello my friends!
So long no see, I know. I am sorry for my sudden absence. As you probably figure out if you follow me on social media, I’m pregnant! Yes, there’s a baby in my belly and I still can’t believe it. And is a BOY! Sorry, but of you 99% were wrong, haha.
I can’t believe how much time has gone by since sharing anything with you. At the same time I feel this pregnancy has gone slowly. I still feel I don’t really have a belly. It has been one of the most interesting months of my life. We wanted to start our family this year and this little guy didn’t want to waste no time. I was not thinking about all the changes my body, mind and hormones that comes behind being pregnant. I mean, all you hear is how wonderful is to have a baby and the miracle of growing life and giving birth. And is true. However, the changes that your body and brain go through can sometimes be scary, at least for a first timer. I had to take a break of everything and give myself time to feel like myself again. It was really hard for me, but I am glad to say that everything is much better.
I am 24 weeks this week and I feel I’ve been pregnant for so much longer haha. We already started buying baby things and planning baby Thompson’s room. It’s probably gonna be the best room in the whole house haha. Is so funny how everything stops being about yourself and it turns to everything for your baby. We will meet him soon.
My friend Amanda made the most beautiful cake for us and took pictures to reveal our baby’s gender. Follow her blog, Say Something Clever, to be inspired with her recipes and beautiful food pictures. I am so thankful! The super cute “Oh Boy” sign by Ashlyn from Loba Design Co.
Until next time,
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I am a sucker for white clothing. White/creamy lacy pieces of clothing is the first thing that catches my attention when shopping (and denim, always denim). The details of this SheInside dress are so perfect! I’m not those kind of girls that stop wearing white at some point of the year, especially living in Florida. I know it has been kind of chilly a few days out of the week lately. Us Floridians really don’t know how to dress for the season, mainly because we don’t know what’s out there until with step out of the door. Nopeee… coming back inside and just wearing jeans, some kind of sweater and a coat I won’t take off because its “too cold”. Let’s celebrate spring coming and nice cool weather to enjoy!
