Lorelai’s nursery is almost complete. I have a few blankets to monogram, and just a few little things to change, but overall, I’m so so happy with it! It’s pretty much just one big DIY project that I’ve been working on since we moved into this house, in October. And, as it slowly came together, it started to become my favorite room in the house. I love how feminine it is. I didn’t want it to look too much like a kid’s room, but not overly like an adult’s room either. I think I struck a great balance in the middle, and it’ll be a room she can grow in to and continue to use some of the furniture and decor for a few years.

Duck boots make for some of the most unflattering, antithesis of what they teach you on “What Not to Wear”, footwear on the planet. Chopping you off at the mid-calf and making you look like you’re standing in a bucket, and such. Still, they’re somehow completely adorable, and you can’t achieve the outdoorsy, “I’m a southern girl in the fall” look, without them.
Baby Lorelai is making a major appearance in all of my blog photos these days, whether I try to include her, or not. She’s already a camera hog. ;) I don’t mind though. Being pregnant has been more fun than I thought it would be, as far as dressing myself and still feeling lady-like. That said, we’re starting to really long for Lorelai’s arrival. We have a nursery to complete, and a house to get in order, after just moving…… but after that, we’re ready! :)
I love the look of coated denim with a chunky knit sweater in the fall. Coated denim or faux leather pants seemed intimidating when I first started seeing the trend. I thought, “shiny legs? Better not..”. But, it’s actually a great way to introduce texture and add interest to an otherwise simple outfit. Coated denim, black heels, and a chambray top? So much more interesting and on-trend than with regular jeans.
In other news, we found out the gender of our little baby last week! We’re thrilled, and I can’t wait to do an announcement post on the blog (soon!) Be on the lookout for our gender reveal.
