HAPPY FRIDAY, lovely friends! I hope this week has been kind to you. I’m finally getting ready to organize baby no. 2’s things and install his car seat this weekend, and the reality that he’ll be here within the next month is starting to sink in haha. I’ve got a lot more thoughts on motherhood to share with you, but those can wait until next week 😉

In the meantime, I’ve teamed up with four gorgeous blogger babes to bring you FIVE festive holiday styles. This time of year is filled with lively parties, sparkles and colorful lights, so it’s the perfect opportunity to talk about holiday attire. Whether you prefer to go all glam or stick with a more casual look, there’s a holiday style for everyone! Read on for more about my look and why I chose it.
When I went through my first pregnancy exactly two years ago, I never imagined I’d be wearing a sequined mini dress less than a month away from my due date. But thanks to PinkBlush, I feel like I’m able to conquer the holidays in style this year, pregnant or not!
I’m going to get real for a minute with you, though. In all honesty, when I first came across this dress, I questioned whether I could pull it off. Let’s be real; pregnancy is beautiful, but it certainly isn’t the most glamorous of times. I definitely feel more self conscious about certain things- my legs being one of them. I’ve never liked them, and while I’m “lucky” that I haven’t dealt with stretch marks during pregnancy, I am currently dealing with varicose veins. So there’s that.
But I really wanted to wear this dress, guys. Because YOLO and stuff, but also because beauty isn’t found in having perfectly flawless bodies (which none of us have). To quote a certain Coco Chanel: “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” So you know what? Screw those insecurities that hold us back from living life and enjoying it to the fullest. Wear the damn dress whether you have perfect thighs or not.
And when all else fails to motivate you, throw on some OTK boots like I did 😉 Target for the win because these babies were under $50 and actually stay up! I’ve been looking for a heeled pair that’s both comfortable, affordable and stylish, and I’m definitely pleased with these. Just don’t forget to stay warm with a classic cardigan. This one is currently under $30! Head over and snatch one before they’re gone.
So there’s my holiday party look for you guys!
Which holiday look is your favorite?
