Last call for jeans 

So as I’ve mentioned in the previous post, we only have 5 weeks to go. I’m officially 35 weeks pregnant with baby #2, and only 35 days ’til we get to kiss her cheeks!

One thing I’ve always enjoyed about fashion is being able to dress “tomboy” with a twist. Although it was super hot, I decided Ave and I would throw some jeans on and go! And let.me.tell.you. It took a good 4 minutes to get these jeans past my hips 😳

Babies really do change our womanly figure, and I cannot complain. All my life I struggled to gain weight and was self conscious of having “chicken legs, and bony knees.”

And as much as I enjoy the weight gain and widening of hips, this was my biggest pair a jeans in the closet, and they didn’t get zipped or buttoned, haha 


Clothing holds so much memory, just like photos, and both I cling to. This camo shirt I wore over 4 years ago at Halloween…so so crazy to me. These jeans Avynn has on were from a previous blog post “DIY Denim”


I’ve literally been flipping my closet upside down to help resist the urge to just throw on sweats or active wear. This “shirt” is a dress I wore months back, it’s so insane the amount of clothes I’ve been re-creating into something different.




As always I throw on a hat and go! I’ve always been such a hat girl but since becoming a mom I think there’s been a handful of times I’ve actually tried and done my hair!

Now my hair is growing at an insane pace and these roots are hiding.


Both chokers around my neck were made by me, because like I always say… Improvise with what you already have in your closet!!!

Ladies, pregnant or not start flipping your closets! Take one of your favorite dresses and use it as a tunic style shirt with some ripped boyfriend jeans and booties! It’s comfy, you don’t always have to go for a crop top!

            Until next time! Xx, 4O1Fierce

Denim Dresses! 

The day before our last day in Florida was Ave + I in our Denim Dresses! A week before our road trip was Avynn’s 3rd Birthday, and my best friend purchased Ave’s adorable dress + fedora!

On this day, James, Avynn and I explored the neighborhood + fed the horses at the farm! The weather was overcast, and was also the perfect day for us to go thrift-shopping (my fave)!!

I’ve been styling Avynn since birth, and up until now she was always taking her accessories off and even her clothing- this baby hates clothing haha

Now that she’s 3-going-on-13 she loves to wear what “mommy wears” and she loves accessories, especially her shoes.

These lace-up gladiators I am so jealous of! I keep trying to snag a cute pair of lace-ups and they’re always sold out in my size! I believe these ones we grabbed from Target!

 

She loved this fedora, surprisingly because whenever we let her wear her hair down she usually wants it nice and free, haha

 

Our first stop of the day, after the farm was a little field next to my grandparents house! The grass was super long so we didn’t stay (I’m terrified for ticks)!

 

I have had these gladiator sandals since last summer, I snagged them at a shoe store in the Crystal Mall. Notice how she watches everything I do? Haha she wanted her foot up on the fence like mommy!


I wish I would have belted this shirt-dress, but I can’t even try to hide that belly! The denim dress was thrifted-I LOVE this one! Anything collared I snag! Also, my hat + sunnies are from H&M!

 Ave’s sunnies are from Children’s Place , and she refused to take off her birthday jewelry from my grandma, haha!
After the field we drove until we saw some pretty palms, because all I’ve wanted for a backdrop was some beautiful pops of color!

 


Again, I’m teasing myself + readers with these photos. We will be seeing sunny days soon!

All Black + Bicycles

So as you all know, we went on a road trip to Florida last week! As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, originally I wanted to post all of my adventures while down there. However, having a 3 year old now leaves only time to rest when we have some down-time. Instead, I decided to use Instagram + Facebook to leak little previews of our vacation-opposed to full-length blog posts on here.

Now that I am home and have a few days here with Avynn while James is off at work on a small trip, I figure what a perfect time to share now!

Before we left for vacation, I had connected with a local boutique—> Elle G that I love-to collaborate with them and see what they would like to be featured for Spring! I ended up pulling 2 of the cutest dresses with necklaces to match.

Last Monday I dedicated to wearing all black (per usual). We had a decently warm day,and since it wasn’t too hot it was perfect for all black, along with a bike ride around my grandparents community.

We loved putting Avynn in the basket and riding around (especially when she was tired).

This necklace and dress were my 2 faves ! I literally won’t buy a dress or skirt without pockets unless I’m completely in love with it. This dress came with the perfect bonus (having pockets)!!

Spring weather means I whip out all of my hat collection….well who am I kidding, I’m such a hat girl year-round. I feel that Florida screams “Sun hats” so I chose my black sun hat, along with my favorite fringe-y black flats!

I thought the necklace from Elle G was the perfect length, and definitely complimented the vacation-vibes I was going for!

Because of this 18-week pregnant belly, I had to take a rope-belt and make sure to give myself a waist-line, otherwise I would be swimming in it.

How cute is this dress?! I loved the length and the sheerness at the bottom. If I was transforming this outfit to a night-time look, I would add some wedges, a slicked back pony, and a statement necklace.

You can shop this look at —> Elle G , they have 2 locations here in Rhode Island- 1 in Wakefield and 1 right in the Emporium at URI! In the meantime you can visit there page to give them a follow + stay up-to-date on their new arrivals! —> Shop Elle G on Instagram!

In regards to my Hat + cat-eye Sunnies, both are Steve Madden

And these flats were gifted months back, and they’re surprisingly comfortable + from Charlotte Russe

Lastly, one of my favorite lipsticks that I always smack on is my -“Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long-Lasting Liquid Lipstick” this product is by The Balm Cosmetics! I love love love this matte color! This stays on even after eating and the scent is INSANE. It is in “vanilla mint.” I received this sample in my October Ipsy Glam Bag and I use it atleast 3x a week. My small sample is still over-half!

Hope you enjoyed my little splash of sunshine, hopefully Rhody will be seeing some sunshine soon!
