C/O Bliss Tulle Skirt | Forever 21 Top | C/O Henri Bendel Clutch | C/O Stuart Weitzman Shoes

Today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate than wearing a gorgeous black tulle skirt. Thanks to Bliss Tulle (hands-down my favorite boutique for tulle skirts) for customizing the length of this skirt just for me, otherwise I would have tripped every other few steps, LOL! They were so sweet and thoughtful to suggest that! It’s not easy being pregger and fashionably petite, I’m telling you. One of my favorite features of Bliss Tulle skirts is their luxe elastic waistbands which are very soft and stretchy. The waistband is the reason why I could wear this gorgeous skirt at 33 weeks!

I debated for a long time what I wanted to talk about today. For the past few months I have had some internal struggles trying to figure what the next year of my life will be. I have a few goals I want to accomplish and yet at the same time I know I will need to slow down (by a lot) to make room for a new life that we will be welcoming into the world very soon. I don’t know how I will be able to do or if I could, but I will rest my faith in God and let him guide me. I feel very grateful each every day to be waking up and do what I love. And to have my family and husband’s support means the world to me. It’s always scary to risk it all to follow your heart, but we own it yourself to try. So for my birthday I wish nothing materially but to have more faith and patience in myself. And of course for my baby to be healthy. Only 7 more weeks to go you guys! Thank you everyone for stopping by and I wish you fabulous day!

I wanted to also thank to RongRong Devoe for the cute illustration of me in my birthday outfit. I love supporting talented artists and she’s definitely a rising star. You have to check out her amazing fashion illustrations.

    Happy birthday Alina. Wishing long life and prosperity. Such a beautiful outfit for a princess.

    Hey, quit worrying so much sweetpea. I am a mom and i can tell you, it is going to be okay. Making time for yourself and your family comes first, but you can always find balance. Besides, it will all fall into place with time :). You will be okay. I promise. If i and many other moms can do it, sure you can.

    A new twist on tulle :-) I’ve never tried one – thought the material was too loose but your take gives me inspiration to maybe try a tulle skirt myself
