I have no idea when I’ll be able to wear regular clothes again (and that’s ok), but I found myself looking through my favorite online shop last weekend…juuuuust to see what’s out there. As much as I love cozy sweaters and jeans, there’s something about summer that feels like home to me.

I’m not sure how it happened but it’s already SPRING and it’s been sunny until after 6PM and I feel like a new woman minus the pregnancy exhaustion which has come back in full-force this week. Or maybe it’s a cold or allergies but whatever. There are hyacinths on my …

It’s cold and I don’t have a fireplace. And even though I mostly try to avoid going outside, our home is a little drafty so sweaters (mostly cardigans and turtlenecks) are how I’m staying warm. Ok, socks, too. I swear I have the worst circulation because my feet are always freezing.
