Pregnancy Style: Weeks 32 - 35

Maternity tank, Target // Cozy cardigan, Barefoot Dreams // Maternity Pixie Pants, Old Navy // Audrey Brook flats, DSW
I splurged and got this SUPER COZY cardigan during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I figured this would be perfect to pack in my hospital bag in the case I needed to walk the halls to get the baby moving and afterwards to throw over my oh-so-sexy hospital gown when visitors came. It's great to lounge around the house in, but cute enough to go run errands in - as I did on this particular Saturday during week 32.

Must Haves for the Nursing Mom

Boppy Pillow  //  I prefer the boppy to other nursing pillows because these can also be used while bottle-feeding, support under your visitors' arms when craddling your little precious baby, or as a neck pillow during those late-night zombie feedings. I am especially loving this cover from Iviebaby's shop on Etsy or these simple, soft covers from Pottery Barn.

Must Haves in the First 3 Months

Stroller frame  //  Picking up the stroller frame that fit our infant seat was the best decision I made to help simplify traveling. With the infant seat being 14-lbs. itself plus an 8-lb. baby, there was no way I could haul a bulky stroller with an infant set adapter in and out of the car easily - it also has a nice sized basket too! I plan to use this all the time until my baby's neck stability is strong enough to ride in our forward-facing BOB stroller, and even beyond for convenience.

Pregnancy Style: Weeks 28 - 31

Chambray shirt, Loft (similar)  //  Maternity Tee, Target  //  Maternity Jeans, 7 For All Mankind  //  Sandals, JCrew Outlet (similar)
I ordered over a dozen pairs of maternity jeans from various retailers (Old Navy, Loft, Target) knowing it was going to be a staple in my maternity wardrobe for the next several months and every order was returned. I found this 7 For All Mankind pair on the clearance rack for $100 at Motherhood Maternity when they were having a Buy One Get One for $1.00 sale.

Nursery Inspiration: Grey, White, & Mint

I waited until we found out the gender of our baby at our 20 week ultrasound before I even allowed myself to start thinking about the nursery. Once we found out we are having a baby girl (YAY!), I unleashed the fury on Pinterest searching for everything white, light, and feminine. The guest room which we are transforming into the nursery has a medium-dark wood floors, exposed brick, and a taupe/gray walls (we rent a rowhome in the city for now but plan to move within the next year-ish, so we aren't planning to paint) so I knew I wanted to lighten up the space with the furniture and linens. I used these images as my inspiration as I went shopping. I can't wait to reveal pictures from our nursery in a follow-on post. 

More inspiration: Design by Laughlin Wilson Design, my Pinterest board

What's your favorite themes/color schemes for a baby nursery?  Do you have a recommendation on where you've snagged some great finds?
