A New April the Giraffe | Blogger Sasha AgentThe New April

A friend of mine keeps checking in asking if we have a new baby yet. She made me crack up when she mentioned that I was like the new April the giraffe–ha, which is exactly how I feel!

As of today, I am officially 39 weeks! As of last Wednesday, I’ve had three rounds of false labor (not fun), and the energy of a slug. This is the first time I’ve actually made it to full term (39 weeks), so it’s kind of strange knowing that I will most likely walk into the hospital tomorrow for a scheduled appointment to have a baby! And although that was always the plan, for all of my girls, early labor always seemed to beat my due date to the punch.

The Crazy Homestretch

This entire last month of pregnancy has been a bit crazy. Contractions pretty much started A New April the Giraffe | Blogger Sasha Agentaround 34 weeks triggered by any type of normal walking during my day-to-day routines. For the entire month of April, I’ve been on edge thinking, “Any day now!” Of course now that I expected to go early, I ended up hanging on until the very end.
My goal this month was to make it to my baby shower and Easter. I especially wanted to give my girls one last calm Easter before the true chaos begins. I’m anxious to meet my new baby girl, but also embracing each remaining day as a family of four. Thankfully, I made it past both occasions. My beautiful mom and beautiful friends threw me an over the top baby shower.A New April the Giraffe | Blogger Sasha Agent Here I was thinking I’d have a little sprinkle, and instead I was surprised with a chic and glammed up party. It was fantastic, and can’t believe all of the support and love I have from family and friends.

What I Wore

For my shower and Easter, I wore a nude embellished maternity dress from the ASOSmaternity lines. I fell in love with a nude and jeweled up number at first sight. In fact, I’m wanting to even keep it for after the baby, but I’m pretty sure I won’t have the bust to fill it out–ha!
Timing was also on my side with the launch of Target’s Sugarfix by BaubleBar launch. BaubleBar is one of my favorite online accessory brands–they’re always up to date on the latest trends. Rather than having to go to a busy mall or spend extra money online, you can literally make a run for your normal Target goods… toilet paper, lotion, and stunning high-end earrings! With my low energy right now, one stop shopping is a must!

Well, wish me luck friends! The next post I have planned will be all about the newest member of the Marrier family!  I can’t wait to meet her!

The Homestretch: Meet Ingrid and Isabel Maternity

Blogger Sasha Agent | Maternity Clothing

The Homestretch

At last! I’m approaching the last stretch of my pregnancy, but I must admit this last trimester is testing my fashion game. At this point I really couldn’t care less about what I wear. I prefer leggings Blogger Sasha Agent | Maternity Clothingand t-shirts to anything else right now. However, an online maternity store by the name of Ingrid and Isabel recently reached out and introduced me to their irresistible and chic line for pregnant women and moms going through the postpartum stage.  When I pulled up their website and saw how chic and gorgeous everything was, I had to try out their looks!

Three Beautiful Maternity Looks

So, I tried out 3 different looks… My first look was a bohemian white off the shoulder midi dress. Also available in pink, black and blue, this dress is super comfortable, lightweight, and made with quality. My next piece is another off the shoulder get up, but it’s a top. This top’s  beautiful embroidered details and light fabric makes dressing up or dressing down any OOTD super easy. Finally, for a more formal look–like my baby shower coming up, I’m wearing a pink lace boatneck Blogger Sasha Agent | Maternity Clothingdress  (super stretchy and surprisingly very comfortable). Take a look at the Ingrid and Isabel website; I promise you’ll be tempted to load up your online shopping cart with beautifully made clothing.

More Than Maternity Clothes

My favorite thing about this line I that they make their pieces for your pregnancy, but also for the postpartum months. This makes me feel so much better about spending money on maternity clothes–which I hate because it’s such a  temporary time period. However, with these looks, I can continue to wear my clothes even after my pregnancy, and at the same time, I’ll still be fabulous and on trend!

Bumpdate and Turning Simple to Chic with Pink Blush

Today’s Look

Long Sleeve Side Ruched Dress

Blogger Sasha Agent in chic ruched maternity dressPregnancy Style and Bump-Date

This mama is feeling a lot better. With both of my pregnancies, my nausea, food aversions and low energy was long gone by the second trimester. However, with this pregnancy, I haven’t been so lucky. Even over the Christmas break, I was dealing with morning sickness, food aversions, super low energy, headaches and a horrible toothache! Recently, my energy seems to be creeping back up, I’m not being super picky on what to eat, nausea may only come in waves a couple of times a week, and I finally fixed my tooth problem which has also helped reduce the headaches. Finally, things are looking promising!

Not Trading in the Chic

So I’m pretty much feeling like a seasoned vet when it comes to this whole pregnancy thing. However, this time around, especially now that I’m blogging, I’m learning that styleBlogger Sasha Agent in chic ruched maternity dress doesn’t have to be compromised. With that being said, you would think comfort would then have to be sacrificed, but that’s not the case either.

Like I explained before on my last maternity post, I am obsessed with Pink Blush and love how they incorporate the current chic trends for women, yet still take comfort into account. Today’s Pink Blush find is a chic olive dress (see the non-maternity version here) with a ruched/gathered side to either dress up your bump, or just add a little bit of pizzazz. This dress comes in multiple colors for multiple seasons, and best of all, it’s soooooo comfortable, soft and stretchy. This dress looks amazing alone or layered with an accent piece.

How I Wore It

Take a look at my looks below for inspiration. I’ve paired this chic look with an oversized faux style vest, over the knee boots (my defaults this season) and dramatic chandelier earrings. This dress is also just as stunning by itself! Remember… Pink Blush is not only all about the pregnant mamas, they’re really just about making women feel beautiful. They’ve got something for everyone, so check them out! I will also be hosting a Pink Blush $75 gift card giveaway today around noon, so be on standby via Instagram for the launch of that contest (@snafierce)!

Happy Friday!

In Desperate Need of a Color Fix

Color Fix Sasha Agent

Blah, Blah, Meh

For some reason, every winter my wardrobe turns to blah–desperately lacking color! It’s even evident on my Instagram feed. Other than my pop of reds from Christmas, you can sort of see the color fade away for the winter.

Saying NO to Segregation

Don’t get me wrong, I love my wardrobe choices, but it’s like the color gets sucked right out of my closet! And yes, it does have a lot to do with the fact that companies tend to focus on the neutrals for the winter, and release their ‘colored’ clothes in the spring and summer. But hey… let’s not segregate our seasons here! And who’s to say colors have to be muted in the winter? Well, I’m ready for a change… I need a pop of color in my life, or at least on my Instagram feed. Ha!

Holiday Chaos

Casual, Cozy and Chic Midi Dress by PinkblushMy holiday break was a whirlwind… For some reason, my husband and I struggled to get motivated this year. We even whipped out the Christmas decorations two weeks prior to the big day, and gifts done at the very last-minute. On Christmas day, I found myself running around like a crazy person cooking my traditional french toast breakfast, packing for my quick New York turn around trip the next morning, and cooking a Christmas feast.

Nothing Goals

Casual, Cozy and Chic Midi Dress by PinkblushWhen I arrived back to my family three days later, my goal was to do absolutely NOTHING. No cooking, no cleaning… nada! Did I succeed? Of course not! I don’t think the concept is realistic in mom world, however, any mama can appreciate today’s three c’s… Casual, Cozy, and Chic.

This Dress is Everything…

Casual, Cozy and Chic Midi Dress by PinkblushToday’s black midi dress (more colors here), is another Pinkblush find.

My Three C’s Mom Test

So I’ve got my blogging clothes, but my functional mommy winter clothes must pass my Three C’s Mom Test. I must be able to rock the casual look for those moments when I may need to run or chase my toddler… Ha! I have to be cozy… since it’s winter, I want to be comfortable and warm. And finally, this is a must, I must be chic and styled.

Casual

This midi dress, (also available as a cute maternity dress and in other colors) is perfect for casual home living. This past Saturday, I spent the morning barefoot and feeling beautiful as I enjoyed my family.



Did I mention it has pockets?!!! Love dresses with pockets!

Cozy

Next stop… dance practice, so time to get in my dance mom gear. Of course I couldn’t  actually spend the day doing nothing because this busy mom has two busy kids. On the way to my daughter’s hip hop dance practice, we stopped for a quick photo shoot so I could show off just how cozy this midi dress could be.



Chic

By now I’m sure you all know I love to look chic and styled, even if I’m just going out to run errands. Even though this dress is super casual, it’s still a dress, and all dresses can be fabulous all on their own.
