First Trimester & Morning Sickness

5 WEEKS


Oh dear heavens, writing this post honestly gives me PTSD. I am so glad morning sickness is over... which btw is not at all only in the "morning." Before I got pregnant, I heard people talk about morning sickness or feeling tired all the time, but never realized how miserable those first couple of months actually are until I went through them. Honestly, it feels like a blur and thank the Lord daily that it's passed. Now I only feel pregnant when I have to get dressed, roll out of bed or sneeze/cough/ move my abs a certain way- hello dissecting abs, you're painful! I'm not complaining and so thankful to be having a baby, but I could definitely do without 4 months of sickness lol! Comes with the package, I know, and to all my friends and you all that have told me were constantly vomiting or sick the whole pregnancy, my whole heart goes out to you!! I can't even begin to imagine and hope that this post helps at least alleviate some "morning" sickness even if it just makes it a little bit more bearable.

Old Fall Outfits To Recreate




Fall is in the air!!! I'm such a sucker for summer but I guess being pregnant and knowing that this fall/winter is extra special because we will be moving into our new house and getting ready for baby has me craving all things Fall!
I was scrolling through Fall pictures from last year and noticed a lot of items I shared are still in stock or are a similar/revamped version of last year's. So many things are items you probably already have in your closet, so hopefully this helps mix & match things a bit :)

Top 5 Best Sellers (August 2019)

Can you believe it's already September!?! That's basically Christmas! Haha!! Just kiddingggg but it feels like this year is flying!! Since it's the first Friday on the month, I want to throw it back to August's top five best sellers! I love seeing what you girls are getting your hands and this month's favorites were basically all Amazon goodies! 

NUMBER ONE: AMAZON POLKA DOT RUFFLE DRESS

(I bought and loved this one in green so decided to get another color. I also tried it on with a wool hat and booties and its SO cute!Wearing size small, I'm 5'4 and hits mid thigh. Someone also sent me this dress that's apparently identical but only $10! A lot of you all bought that one, but I haven't so I can't say it's the exact same, but based on the description/picture, I'd give it a go!)

How To Dress For a Couples Photoshoot

One of my favorite parts of blogging is helping you all find outfits for special events or photoshoots. Matching with your spouse/family for a photoshoot can be quite difficult and the last thing you want to happen is to spend all this time outfit planning, getting everyone ready, get excited to see the photos only to be disappointed and ask yourself why in the world you wore that!!

Black and White Patio Inspo

The closer we get to decorating our new home, the more excited I get! This weekend, we went through the house to measure out a few things and then spent some time chilling on our back porch. It's so peaceful and the perfect area to unwind. I can't wait to decorate it and want to create a space that's sleek, stylish, yet still comfortable!

SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup (5/3 to 5/10)

How are we almost halfway through May!?!? Time is going by SO fast!! Last week was a blur, but super busy/fun hence the absence of last week's roundup. My brother (he's in med school) was in town for a few days so I spent last Friday with him at Carowinds. Every year year there are middle school (and maybe high school) band competitions where schools in the state spend the day at Carowinds to have their performance and then ride rides all day. Well, unknowingly we went the same day of the competitions and there were kids everywhere! I mean packed haha! Fun fact, we actually were both in band way back when and got to do the same thing haha! Needless to say, the lines were super long because the groups were huge and we didn't want to waste the day waiting only to ride a few rides. We upgraded to fast passes which cost more than the tickets themselves (eyeroll) but it made for such a fun day! The longest we had to wait was maybe ten minutes on a ride and so thankful for the time we got to spend together! We were always pretty close growing up so it's nice getting to spend time together in the midst of our busy lives. Anyways, the next day was the surprise party for one of my husband and I's best friend. I was in charge of decorating, so Saturday was spent running around getting all that together! You all LOVED!!! the balloon arch so I'll link all the details I used below. Anyways, that's enough for a life update or I could go on forever! 

As always, scroll through for outfit details of the week- including an Amazon and Nordstrom try-on haul, sale alerts and the top sellers of the week! Have a great weekend everyone!!

HAPPY WEEKEND!!!
I'm so happy I'm off this weekend, but boy oh boy is this Friday rough! I have a to-do list a mile long and zero energy to do it! I have to do a call shift every schedule period and this week it was Monday and then had my regular 12 hour shifts on Tuesday and Wednesday. Crazy me was like, well I have to do three days in a row so might as well do one more and go into overtime hahah! And well, here we are four days later and my body is not my friend today lol and we signed up for a 5k tomorrow so that's going to be fun haha! Anyways, last weekend we went around a few countertop stores and think we found "the one" for our kitchen! I loved one in particular on the sample board, but when we saw the full slab, there were specs in it that I was not a fan of and although it was still the best out of all we saw, I hated having to settle for that one. That was until we walked out of the warehouse and saw one being lifted up and oh my goodness is it a beauty! It was a newer one they didn't have a sample out yet. I can't wait to show you guys!!! So many other house updates but I'll save that for another time :) For now, here are all my LTK/IG posts of the week, top 5 sellers and a list of sale alerts at the end. If you're a beauty lover, there's a huge sale going on you don't want to miss! As always, let me know if you have any questions :)
Have a great weekend!!

SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup (4/12 to 4/19)

Welcome to SimplyLovely Weekly Roundup! I'm going to be rounding up each week's IG posts, top 5 best sellers, and a roundup of weekend sales every Friday! I have loved doing SimplyLovely Fan Faves every month, but it was a struggle because by the end of the month, some of the top sellers were either out of stock or no longer on sale, etc. so this is basically SimplyLovely Fan Faves except every week instead of every month! I also know a lot of you guys don't like using the LiketoKnow.it app or can't keep up with Instagram Stories all weekend long where I usually share sale alerts, so I want this to be a place to get easy access to sales going on every weekend, get first dibs on the most popular items I share and most of all have access to it all weekend long without worrying about it expiring like it does on stories. I would love your feedback so feel free to let me know in the comments below :)

My Ulta Haul

I asked, you voted!
Here is a roundup of items I got from Ulta today. I wanted to get a few new makeup products to try out. I don't really wear full coverage makeup- if I want to wear some coverage with a little bit of a glow, I opt for this favorite product of mine. I have been watching quite a few makeup videos and reading reviews on the best of the best products so I picked them up today in order to experiment with a fuller coverage on days I want to glam up a little bit :)  There's a few all time favorites on the list that were refills so those are obviously keepers

Simply Lovely Fan Faves January 2019



Starting the week with Simply Lovely Fan Faves January 2018 edition! If you're new around here, I'm sharing YOUR top five favorites from the month and my number one top favorite purchase. I'm a little late to share this month's round-up, but luckily they are all still in stock and some of these items are on sale! If you missed last month's round-up, can check out December 2018 Simply Lovely Fan Favorites post HERE.

This has been a favorite cardigan of mine since I got it a few months ago because of the waffle knit detail and statement buttons! It’s also very cozy and soft! There are more color options and often goes on sale. It does go in and out of stock all the time, so if you don’t catch it in stock in your size, keep checking back.
CARDIGAN // BLACK LONGSLEEVE // LEATHER LEGGINGS // SHOES // BAG

I got this top right at the end of January and it surpassed other top sellers very quickly, for good reason! I got my true size as it is an oversized fit and love that you can wear it loose and flowy like I shared on IG stories with white jeans for a baby boy baby shower, but also looks good tucked in the front with jeans or bow tied in the front. It also makes for a great workwear piece over classic pants or a high waisted pair. Obviously a very versatile closet staple :)
TOP // JEANS // MULES 

Look familiar? This was the only December top seller that made it on January Fan Faves and it’s currently on major sale! I have the pink version and sized up one size for a looser fit. It’s a soft knit with the cutest button detail in the back. It comes in a few other colors that make for great Spring transition sweaters.
SWEATER // JEANS // BOOTIES // SUNGLASSES // BAG

These. Pants. Are. Amazing!! I’m not going to lie, I went through several sizes of these pants before I found the perfect fit, but I’m so glad I didn’t give up on them! They are SO flattering and obsessed with the chic style the bow detail adds! I’m 5’4 and 24 in jeans for reference and decided on the short because the regular length came down to my foot so the hem kind of sat on my shoe and folded weirdly not giving me the ankle length I was going for as pictured in the model photo. I’ve worn these pants with both heels and flats and they’re just so adorable! They are currently on sale, so I am getting another color ASAP!
SUNGLASSES // TURTLENECK // PANTS // SHOES (similar pair here)

A sweater you can wear with leggings?! Yes please! This lightweight tunic with a high low hem is a great basic piece for a casual day out with leggings or dressed up a bit with jeans! This exact color is on sale as is the navy and mustard but also comes in a pretty light pink.
TOP (more colors on sale here) // jeans // booties

MY FAVORITE PURCHASE

I had several favorite purchases this month, but this jumpsuit wins the prize for number one favorite! I’ve been wearing it SO much around the house and constantly reaching for it when I know I’m going to be home for the day or to turn down for the evening! I wish you guys can feel how soft and stretchy it is!!

MOST LIKED PICTURE ON INSTAGRAM THIS MONTH

Most of the pictures above made it in the top 5, but the very top liked picture on IG this month was this one:
TOP (more colors on sale here) // jeans // booties

Followed by this one for a close second:
HOODIE (updated version) // JOGGERS // SLIPPERS (similar pair) // MUG (From Charming Charlie, similar mugs linked HERE)

 MY FAVORITE INSTAGRAM POST

This is hands down my favorite IG post of January and probably favorite outfit in a while! If you haven't jumped on the athleisure trend, you're missing out! This was one of the first times I went into athleisure mode and looking stylish and still being so comfortable is the best for a busy day running errands and maybe, just maybe, getting a workout in haha! These shoes were also my favorite December purchase, and I still can't say enough good things about them! I'm normally a 7-7.5...a 7 fit perfectly.

I hope you all enjoy these posts!! Let me know if you have any other "favorites" you'd like me to share and which outfit was your favorite in the comments below :)
