Yay for Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day weekend. My husband and I made the mistake of staying up too late the night before Valentine’s Day so we ended up sleeping through most of the day. The funny thing was when we finally woke up I had forgotten it was Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t until we opened the door to go get the mail that I saw a sweet package from my husband with heart-shaped balloons and all. He’s the best, I love him so much! Sometimes I feel like I have a case of pregnancy amnesia.

Since it was such a pretty day with temperature in the high 70’s, we decided to go on a spontaneous day date and take some blog photos while we were at it. Luckily, we caught the sun right at the peak of the golden hour so the photos turned out nice & dreamy. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I wore a cute lace top in Marsala (2015 Pantone’s color of the year) and an a-line sheer organza skirt. If you’re wondering how in the world I could fit into this skirt now that I’m almost 8 months pregnant…well, the waistband was partially elastic so there was plenty of room for the baby bump. :)

To add an element of playfulness, I wore these gorgeous sandal heels I recently picked up from Delman Shoes. Ahh, these shoes are everything and they were definitely LOVE at first sight. I remembered the first time I tried them on for my husband and he was at a loss for words. All that I could heard from him was “Wow. Wow. Wow”. He’s not easily impressed when it comes to fashion, so that was a huge compliment. =D

Starting this week my posting schedule may become a bit sporadic for short period of time. We’re in the process of shopping for a new house, working on a tech venture (I’m so excited to share with you in the months to come) and preparing for the arrival of our baby in less than 6 weeks. In between everything that is going on, I will try my best to post whenever I can. Thank you so much for your support and understanding, and I hope you’ll like this post! You all have been the best!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Yes, I know it’s not exactly the 14th yet but why not celebrate a little bit early. Whether you’re celebrating at home or going out, I hope your day is filled with lots of love & joy. As much as I would like to go out tonight because it has been a long standing tradition, I will be staying at home in my comfy pjs with my two loves as I have mentioned in my previous post. All I want to do tonight is indulge in my favorite food, knit a little and the watch a BBC science series. I know, it doesn’t sound very exciting and romantic, but it’s all I want to do. :) Lately, each step I take seems to require a bit more effort. It doesn’t get any easier but I’m truly enjoying each and every moment of becoming a new mom.

Instead of wearing red or pink today, I decided to wear an LWD (Little White Dress). I need more LWB to be honest with you. White is such a classic and elegant color. It may not be an obvious choice for Valentine’s Day, but the shape and silhouette of this dress so beautiful and romantic. I also love how soft and stretchy the material of this dress is, it really flatters the baby bump. What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?

C/O ASOS Dress | Enzo Angiolini Shoes (similar HERE)

Hello Beauties! I’ve been on a roll this week pushing out a new post every single day. Just so you’re wondering, this is actually unprecedented for me. However, since it’s Valentine’s Day week (and I love Valentine’s Day), I couldn’t help but make an exception. I hope you’re enjoying reading the posts as much I have been creating them.

My third and final Valentine’s Day look for ASOS is this adorable beaded skater dress. Have you seen a more elegant and cute maternity dress than this? It’s also in my favorite color, so just for that alone it’s already in my It List! I love that it has a lot movement. The beads on the sheer fabric makes a romantic combination and is perfect for a Valentine’s Day night date look. Actually, I could see myself wearing this dress to a wedding or any formal occasion. Where else would you wear a dress like this?

Now that I’m in the last phase of my pregnancy, I’m naturally leaning more towards skater and stretchy maxi silhouettes. When I’m out and about these are the two styles I wear often. They are comfortable. Having said that certain bodycon dresses are also great as long as they are soft and stretchy like this one from ASOS that I wore recently. If you love ASOS Maternity or the regular ASOS lines, don’t miss out the 75% off sales going on right now.

If you haven’t seen my other ASOS Valentine’s Day looks, you can check them out here and here.
