BA&SH is the brain child of two Parisian friends, Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief, who decided to make their ideal collection of clothing for everyday wear. How can you not love the simple elegance of all of these pieces? I die!

In keeping with my true love for Fall, I have already started browsing for some fun new scarves for the cooler weather. I fall more in love with scarves every year, as they are such an easy add to make a simple outfit a little more fun.

Post-Natal Wardrobe

So in all of my birthing brainstorming these days, I decided to put together an ideal wardrobe for those days and weeks after giving birth when you just want to be comfortable, but also want to look pulled-together for the constant stream of visitors coming to your house. This is what I came up with...

Confessions of a Pregnant Woman

So at 35 weeks, I feel like I am quickly slipping into the luxurious, pregnant lady life... this afternoon, I ate Ben & Jerry's just because I wanted it...

I have sort of abandoned my workout regime, which has been super-limited for my entire pregnancy, because let's face it, I can't help anything now!

I haven't done any housework in about a week...


I'm making online purchases without thinking twice about it- because after all, the only thing that fits anymore is shoes anyway!

But I am really starting to realize that I'm getting close now, and I need to get things in gear. Last night I made my hospital bag list of supplies, I'm mentally making a list of Little J's baby stuff I need to take out of the attic and wash, and started talking about the plan for where to bring J when I go into labor. We're ready to meet you little baby! See you soon!

Hem Gems

How great are these Hem Gems? They convert your longer, high-heel, jeans, to perfect-to-wear-with-flats jeans with just a few studs. Because really, what's worse than messing with your hems, and then having to decide whether you can only wear them with flats or pumps? Now you don't have to choose!

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

I'm sorry I've been so absent as of late. I am working at a camp this week and am fully off the map for most of the day. I must say, being a working mom for even just one week is about as exhausting as it gets, and my hat goes off to all of those working moms out there, seriously. So needless to say, I am coming home pretty worn out this week, and trying to squeeze in time with my hubby and Little J at night, all while resting my 34-weeks-pregnant body.

I'm enjoying this week, but looking forward to life as I know it come next week.
I hope you are having a lovely week, and keeping cool wherever you are!

Nothing Mellow About This Yellow


Nothing says "summer" like yellow and blue, don't you think?

Everywhere You Look...

I'm back, fresh off of a mini vacation at the beach, and as I get closer and closer to D (delivery)-day, I am finding myself drawn to all of the gorgeous, flowy blouses appearing for early fall, and I truly can't get enough of everything Elizabeth and James. Who knew the little Michelle Tanners would create such absolutely gorgeous clothes?

What's Your Platform?

As I was cruising through Nordstrom today, in the only department that currently "fits," I came across some seriously cool platforms. The best thing about them is that they are super chic, and yet always so comfortable!

Sam Edelman

Via Spiga

Jeffrey Campbell

And these caught my eye in the Kenneth Cole window- and they're on sale!!

Loeffler Randall Sale!!

If only these were left in my size, there would be big trouble for my credit card! There's a summer sale going on over at Loeffler Randall (I know this now, thanks to Jackie!), so go get yourself into some trouble!

Amazing Technicolor Chalkboard Paint

Just when you thought chalkboard paint was just about the coolest thing ever, it now comes is a whole slew of colors! I'm seriously thinking about painting a wall of this in my basement and letting Little J go ba-nanas.
