Los Angeles Days…

Los Angeles Days…

I never came to post this look while on vacation this Summer in California…Little did I know then that I was already a few weeks pregnant. Time certainly flies—now that I’m officially 17 weeks pregnant.





This look is probably one of my favorite Summer looks. I love the crochet top with its bell sleeves paired with one of my latest obsessions: Fringe hem denim. L.A was wonderful and I kid you not that I’m still reminiscing about the City of Angels. My husband and I talk a lot about the future and we do know that one day we will make the move out West. My husband is originally from California, and he hates the cold in Chicago as much as I do. But first I will have to give birth to our second child…Kingston’s baby brother. We are so excited and we are literally counting down the months until we hold baby #2 in our arms! One thing is certain: The future is exciting!

On a different note: You probably noticed the layout change to my blog! I worked all day yesterday on it, and I love the new look! How about you? Drop me a comment below!

Happy weekend, and thanks so much for reading!

    I absolutely love the new layout your bog, it is amazing and has a twist of edge to it. The crochet top looks so chic on you. Time flies and soon you will have your 2nd bundle of joy in your arms.

    I LOVE the new look Vanessa. Only problem is, this new blog with .com ending doesn’t show on Bloglovin and it would be so much easier for me to access your blog there. 🙁

    Your crochet top is gorgeous and in my second favourite colour. I love it.
    Have a wonderful day.

    I love the new look of the blog too! I know that is a lot of work. This is a great outfit. The color and detail of the top is so nice, and I still want a pair of fringe hem jeans like this. You definitely have an exciting future ahead of you!

    That top is gorgeous! That’s so crazy that you didn’t have any clue you were pregnant then. I can definitely see you moving out west it looks like you’d fit right in.

    Wow that is exciting news. And loving that bag too. Yeah Chicago winters are like New York winters–COLD. But Chicago has a lot of great stuff going on and hopefully the Cubs take it!
