Accessories, Bags, ObsessionsHello Sole Society!

We spotted this clutch from lifestyle brand Sole Society and were instantly obsessed! Measuring 8.5″H x 11.5″W, the Justine Clutch is an ample size for fitting everything you need for the day – from your phone to office paperwork – and is just as perfect to take out to dinner with the girls. (For mamas with little ones, this is also a great pouch to separate your stuff from the baby’s must-haves in a bag.) Most of all…we absolutely adore the cheeky typeface printed on the bag – “Hello” on the front and “Goodbye” on the back. So fun!

Fashion, Fitness & HealthBump It Up in Athleta

cn8750164
As a first-time mom-to-be, I’m finding that workouts are getting harder and harder with a growing bump. Not only are there a few restrictions to be mindful of, but getting heavier around the belly can make it a challenge as well – even well before the actual workout.  The amazing discovery I made was that Athleta, one of my favorite athletic clothing brands, makes maternity workout pants…YES!

Their classic and ever-so-popular Chaturanga Tight comes in a Low Belly and a High Belly option – whichever type of band you might prefer for the growing belly. (Side note: you can size down for these pants – a bonus feel-good moment when you’re seeing the number on the scale go up each month!)  Like with all other Athleta Chaturanga pants, it’s made of a mid-weight Supplex nylon/spandex blend with their signature PILAYO stretchy fabric that wicks and breathes away sweat. It also has a UPF 50+ for a bit of sun protection.

These pants are definitely made for the growing bump, and probably work best once you’re at the 20+ week mark. For the High Belly option, it might be a bit large in the waist until your bump is bigger…but you can just fold the top of the band down to get more wear out of them. Top it with a cute sweatshirt like this No Sweatin’ It Sharkbite Top and you’re all set for your next prenatal barre, pilates, yoga, etc. workout!

FashionComfy Cozy in PJ Salvage

pjsalvage

Brr!! Even though we’re on the brink of spring, it’s still so chilly outside that we just want to stay inside and be cozy in our pajamas. Do you feel the same way? If so, we say it’s the perfect time to invest in a luxe pair of PJs from PJ Salvage.

We love the gorgeous mens-inspired Luxe Modal PJ Set, made with a modal/elastane blend; this fabric is ultra soft and feels completely luxurious on the body. The pajama top is a classic button-front,  which is great if you want to slip a tank underneath, and features a chest-pocket; an adjustable drawstring waist bottom gives you the ultimate comfort. We love the simple contrast trim and the flattering cut, together which makes this pair of PJs a classic that you can wear for years to come.

Get yours at PJSalvage.com – or check out some of their fun printed styles!
