Hey Baby!

The Mama-to-be and me! I borrowed this Rachel by Rachel Roy dress from my sister's closet and paired it with Forever 21 Jewelry for a little pop.
Back in February when I picked up my friend Ashley to go get pedicures she gave me the great news that her and her husband were having a baby! I was so excited for them and of course already thinking about shopping for baby clothes (Lord help me, I am going to be out of control when I have some little ones of my own!) Fast forward a few months, Ash's sister-in-law Megan had a fabulous idea to do a Pampering baby shower with a yellow and grey theme and I was eager to help. Here are just a few pics from the day:
With spray paint, buttons, and scrapbook paper I decorated candles, candelabras, and picture frames to display at the shower. We got baby pictures of the expecting parents for the frames--loved those pics!
I bought fabric quarters at JoAnn's and used iron-on transfer paper to make a onesie banner that we hung over the onesie making station. (Thanks for all of your help mom!)
Using the invitation as an example, I made a graphic to print on labels for wine bottle game prizes. And my mom decided to use leftover fabric to make a tie & bow tie for the bottles--she's so creative!
My go-to Baby Shower gift, I love making diaper cakes!

Gold Medal

Top, vintage/ Guess Shorts/ Qupid Heels/ Foley + Corinna Bag/ House of Harlow Sunglasses/ Chanel Earrings/ Michael Kors Watch
With the Olympics on my mind I wanted to create a Gold Medal look so I basically threw on as much gold as possible. I definitely felt glamorous! Unfortunately I am really sensitive when it comes to jewelry and these heavy earrings and necklace ended up giving me a headache[ughh!] and after having lunch outside I realized it was just too hot for heels. So I decided to lighten up my look a bit; I took off my chunky jewelry and heels and slipped into flip flops and blue shorts. I really loved my first look, but that was probably the best decision I made all day! Usually I would say that pain is beauty, but headaches are not winning!

What do you think, comfort or Chanel?
