Pre-Fall 2016


We might still be sandwiched between seasons, but it I’m already rocking some pre-fall fashion consisting of a covetable coat and luxe palazzo pants…





Thank YOU for your kind pregnancy well wishes! Receiving all of your congratulation messages filled my heart with happiness knowing that there are people who support and wish me and my family the best in life. I love you all SO much, and I cannot wait to share this new chapter of my life with you!

While it isn’t quite cold in Chicago, it is however, suitable enough to warrant your legs with some comfy palazzo pants. Every year I ask myself: “What am I going to wear this Fall?” The perennial answer is “anything” but I say: Align yourself with this season’s standout trends, say no more — just keep on reading.

Palazzo pants are my personal pre-fall favorite and I don’t say this just because I’m pregnant. They are not only super comfy but stylish as well. Pair them with strappy heels and you’re ready to tackle any fashion obstacle.

What are you fall must-haves this season? Let me know by commenting below!

PS: Next Monday, September 26, I will reveal the gender of my baby! Mark your calendars! 🙂

As always, thanks much for reading & have a great Wednesday!

    I LOVE this type of pant. It is the one thing (besides skirts) I miss most about being pregnant. You styled them so well. Love the retro vibes and the pattern mixing in the belt. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog. You are the best! I am due December 28th, but you do not need to get anything. Hope you’re having the best day!

    I love this look! Perfect down to the detail, including that gorgeous belt! My must haves are (obviously) trousers, good midi boots, and a long blazer.

    We love the charm and sophistication of a great top-handle bag mainly because it adds that same vibe to anything we have on.
