Bomber Jacket

Bomber jackets


Jackets are a mainstay of mine but definitely for anyone who lives in the Northeast.  On trend this fall have been bomber jackets.  They are so cute and fun.  They come in all color and designs.  It's a nice break away from the leather jacket and definitely more playful.  I chose one with pink of course and couldn't be happier.  This satin jacket has floral embroidery on the front and back and makes me think of the "pink ladies" from the movie Grease.  Bomber jackets come in various colors and styles but this one is perfect for me.   See below for various bomber jacket options.

First Outing in Mango Coat

Fall coat for new york blue coat

I am in love...my little Angel is here and I am enjoying every minute of it.  Honestly, I am pretty tired as well but I expected that and every minute of exhaustion is completely worth it.  I was very lucky and my husband stayed home for the first two weeks with me when we came home from the hospital.  I was very nervous since I have never held a newborn before or even changed a diaper.  They say it comes naturally and they were not wrong.  Its crazy how it really just comes to you.  I am so comfortable holding my little baby and taking care of her.  My biggest fear used to be the day 
I would have to stay home alone with her for the first time but that day came and I felt so at ease.  It was not as bad as I had always imagined and I handled it like a champ!  

So three weeks in and I really haven't left the house except to take my little one to the doctor.  It has been so cold that I really don't mind being inside.  It was time though for me to get some fresh air.  My in-laws wanted to visit and see the baby one weekend and with that, I had babysitters.  My mother-in-law encouraged me to go out as well as she said it would be good for me.  My husband and I stepped out for brunch and at first I was worried but we were really only a block away and I knew she was in good hands.  I had such a great time with my husband.  We go a chance to unwind and really catch up with each other.  It is so important to have that alone time even if it just for a few hours.  

December has been so cold and there were flurries coming down by the time we headed home.  This wool coat from Mango is very warm and I layered with a turtleneck cable knit sweater and heat-tech leggings and undershirt.  My over the knee boots provided another layer of much needed insulation.  I am so happy with this coat especially the color.  I didn't own a blue coat before and this one goes very well with almost anything.  Coats are so important in New York, where is your favorite coat from?

Over the Knee Boots

This is one last outfit I threw together before giving birth.  These boots are so comfortable and keep me warm.  I wore a plain grey jersey dress and my leather jacket to take a stroll around the neighborhood.  I wanted to make sure I kept walking as much as possible.  I heard it helps for a smooth labor.  I'll have more about that later!  With labor near, I wanted to also make sure my hair was done before I went to the hospital looking a mess.  I used my Irresistible ME flat iron to give my hair this straight style that lasted long past delivery!

All Black

I can't believe its been a month already since I welcomed little ChloĆ© into this world. I couldn't be happier.  It is a completely new feeling and I can't even remember what life felt like beforehand.  Just one week before giving birth, I was enjoying a quiet weekend in the neighborhood.  I actually was able to fit into my leather leggings still!  The weather didn't reach the current frigid temperatures so all I needed at the time was this black poncho.  A simple outfit for a simple weekend.  Because now, there is no such thing but I am grateful for it!

Snapped Maternity Shoot


I found the answer to great photos for a fraction of the price!  Snapped is an amazing service that offers professional photography for affordable prices.  This a new company that has selected a handful of quality and skilled photographers that will come to you for a 45 minute session and have edited photos delivered to you within hours for you to share online.  They also offer different session lengths and have great pricing options.  You can book them as soon as just a day in advance.  This is great for kid birthday parties, engagement shoots, blogger outfit photos, or maternity shoots.

We had the opportunity to take advantage of one of their pop up weekend shoots and experience them first hand in Central Park.  The photographer was very friendly and made us feel comfortable right away.  I was happy knowing that they only work with a select number of photographers who have been vetted so I knew I would be receiving quality pictures.  Also, they are not rigid with the timeframe at all.  I never felt rushed and I couldn't believe how fast we received the edited set.  I included a few of my favorites from our session.  I highly recommend this service and hope you will try them out!
