InStyle with the Bump || Dark + Floral

"This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle,
Vogue, and Elle, but all opinions are my own." #pmedia #inspirefallfashion // full disclosure


I believe that "fashion" is for all. It's a natural, creative desire within us that radiates forth - bursting
into sequenced pumps or classic flats, layers of cotton or ruffles in satin, boot cuts or skinnies forever.
We all have our own unique style and drive and I believe it is to be CELEBRATED!

I am currently a 36 weeks pregnant hot mess.

Confession: the other day I seriously texted my husband, "I want to be so cute, but I just feel so
big and large and round!"
- with some very sad emoticons for all-intensive, visual purposes. I think we as
women, myself included - right smack in the front of the line, can be so critical of ourselves when we
could be taking all that God-given, beautiful, radiate energy and using it to ROCK what we've got!

Preaching to myself: life is too short to not embrace the fashionista within!

From size 0 to plus - from tiny to voluptuous - from petite to tall - from maternity to post partum -
raise your glasses... because the Fall fashion magazines are dripping with ideas for YOU. Yes, you!

I ran to Target (because I ALWAYS run to Target!) and picked up the September issues of
InStyle and Elle. Fun fact, right now if you buy any two (InStyle, Elle or Vogue) fashion magazines
through September 13th, 2014 you get a $5 Target gift card
. Um - that's a pumpkin spice latte on your
way out the door! Read and sip, my friends - read. and. sip!

All the dark colors paired with floral immediately caught my eye! *Swoon*
So this Fall I'm going vintage-classy and I'm taking "the bump" with me!!!

moccasin flats // Nine West
slouch hat // American Eagle
rings // Target

Be encouraged, be inspired, be who you were created to be and dress accordingly! There are lots
of beautiful ideas out there (hey thanks - InStyle, Elle, Vogue!), so I'm going to highly recommend that
you start at Target and get that PSL with your $5 gift card on the way out the door!!!


Pin It!
