She {hearts} Sammy Dress

sammy-dress

Many months ago I was introduced to a company called Sammy Dress. Some of you may have seen this company advertised on facebook. I know I have seen it there a few times. This website is packed full of fashion items for less. When I looked at the website I found myself stuck there for quiet some time. The variety of items offered was huge.

pursesI loved all their tunic tops, summer dresses and fun accessories. A great selection of purses and clutches.

Their prices are probably some of the most affordable prices I have seen for online shops such as this.

This website does allow returns as well. The sizing charts they offer are pretty true to size… but if you do get an item that does not fit or you do not like, you can ship it back for exchange or refund. They just ask you cover shipping.

For fun I thought I would list out some favorite items I found on the site. Just click the links and it will open them up unto a new window.

- Loved this Newspaper inspired Tote. Would make a great over night bag!

- Bow Knot Head Band, would be fun for working out, or casual day with a bad hair day.

- Huge Make up Brush Set

- Another Brush Set (I love make up brushes, always nice to have back ups too, while other ones are being cleaned)

- Summer Dress – so cute!

- Casual Swoop Top – stripes. I love tops like this.

- A Purse organizer! Im so getting one of these!!

As you can see, lots to choose from. They often run lots of specials too. Items as high as 70% off.

  MARNI STRIPE DRESS

Sonnet James is a company that specializes in making dresses for the everyday mom. They are comfortable, stylish, and impeccably made- right here in the US!  You can dress them up for a church morning, or put on some tennis-shoes and go for a walk with the family.

Sonnet James was created by a momma with all those things in mind- style, comfort, and workmanship.

These dresses are designed to be rolled around in with your kids, worn while jumping on the trampoline, or for going to the park and flying a kite!  Live life… with your family… in the perfect Sonnet James dress!

Sonnet James was birthed by a mom of two boys, so you know these pieces were made to be worn, enjoyed, and to last!

I received the Stella dress to review.  I have already worn it several times- once to church, once to a meeting, and another time to a conference.  I love that it is a non-maternity dress that can be worn during pregnancy!  I feel so comfortable wearing it right now with my expanding baby bump, and I can’t wait to wear it without my baby bump!  The fabric hangs so nicely and the care of the garment is super simple- wash and let air dry.

We all know how hard it can be to find lovely, comfortable nightwear!  It’s especially challenging when pregnant or nursing, so I knew I needed to get a set of pj’s from Amoralia when I discovered their company!

I selected the “Honey” Cami and Pajama Pant Set in Aqua.  I have never slept in such comfortable pajamas!  The fabric is so soft and breathable, yet stretchy too.

I love the color and style of this set, and the lace detailing is flirty while not revealing too much.  The cami fits over my 7.5 month pregnant belly, but it will also be great to wear postpartum while I’m nursing!  The nursing openings are discreet but accessible.  I’m really looking forward to wearing this while snuggling my new baby boy this fall!

Amoralia offers other lovely items as well, such as camis, nursing tops, bras, panties, and swim suits.  Everything they sell is beautifully made, with feminine touches and high-quality fabrics.

Hi Res Prima CoverSometime in the next 4 weeks, I will be giving birth to our fourth child.  This is a special, anticipated, and somewhat scary time!  One of the things that I would like to try this time, is staying out of the bed.  I tend to have very fast, intense labours, and once I get in the bed, I can’t get out again.  Along with being free to move around, I was also looking for some type of clothing that would be comfortable, yet still accessible for birth.  Let’s face it… those hospital gowns are pretty terrible!

BINSI contacted me to see if I would like to try one of their birthing skirts, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it!  I was sent the PrimaMama Skirt in Eclipse.    This skirt is surprisingly modest, which is something that some women are concerned with, even during birth.  It’s comfortable, breathable, and lightweight.

The features of this skirt are what really make it stand out as a great birthing skirt.  From the front snaps that go the whole length of the skirt, to the drawstring waist, to the side slits for maximum movement, the details were well thought out.  I am excited to give this skirt a go in the next few weeks!

BINSI was started by Carri Grimditch, a certified Doula and Mom, in 2005.  She was expecting her second baby and knew she wanted to feel more comfortable and confident.  She realized that less stress makes labour easier to handle.  By designing a skirt that works for both Doctors/Midwives, as well as mothers, she really has accomplished her goal or helping mommies-to-be feel confident during birth.

{heart} It

  • BINSI offers several styles and colours of birth skirts, as well as tops that are fully accessible to medical equipment if need be.
  • Each skirt also comes with a set of 8 blessing beads that you can add onto the drawstring of your skirt.
  • BINSI products are proudly made in the USA.

She {hearts} Belabumbum’s Mom & Baby Sets

baby boom virtual shower
When it comes to gifting mom at her baby shower, the pressure to give a unique gift is on. While diapers and onesies are much appreciated, it seems that mom often receives an overload of those items. Okay, you can never have enough diapers, but I know at my baby shower, I received enough onesies to clothe triplets.

If you’re in a bind and want to grab something quick, yet unique, may I suggest the Mom & Baby sets from Belabumbum? I was gifted a Starlit set and I just had to share. The set is absolutely adorable! I seriously lit up when I opened it :-D.

Mom & Baby sets include a soft, cotton jersey nightie trimmed in lace and a matching unisex gown for baby. After delivery I know I’ll want to put on fresh, comfy pjs and instead of my usual yoga pants and tee, I’m going to want to put on something that makes me feel delicate and pretty. Belabumbum’s got me covered. To top it off, new baby and I will get to snuggle up in matching outfits after hours of our hard work. What a precious photo opp that’ll be.

She {hearts} Amamante Nursingwear

Amamante Signature Nursing GownBreastfeeding can make finding clothing a bit challenging, especially when you still want to feel pretty.  I’ve often felt challenged when it comes to finding great sleepwear that is also easy to nurse in.

I was recently introduced to Amamante Nursingwear, a great company that makes beautiful nursing gowns and pajamas.  Their gowns are also great to wear while pregnant too!  I have been wearing the Signature Nursing Gown in Chocolate and I love it.

The gown is so soft and comfy, but it is very pretty and feminine at the same time.  A big plus: you don’t have to fool with clasps or flaps in the middle of the night.  The fabric is stretchy and the front easily slips aside to allow for nursing access. The signature nursing gown is available in five different colors.

In addition to gowns, Amamante also offers Nursing Bras and Nursing Pajamas.

She {hearts} TummyTankz Belly Bands

baby boom virtual shower

003tummytankz As my pregnant body grows, I am starting to grow out of a few of my tops. I haven’t given up on them yet, because I don’t believe in shopping for larger clothes unless totally necessary. I have a few belly bands to wear up under those tops to cover up my peeking belly and I’ve added a few more of those bands to my collection.

TummyTankz sent me a few belly bands to wear during my pregnancy, both of which will come in handy as well as spruce up a few of my tops. How cute is the Elegance Belly Band (limited edition) that I’m wearing this morning in the photo to the left? I Looove the pattern and the colors. It’s so comfy too! It’s made of nylon and spandex so it won’t fade or get those little cotton balls all over it.

TummyTankz are very versatile and grow with a woman’s body. They can be worn as a maternity belly band, a nursing under-cover, or as an extension to any wardrobe by pairing with a basic tank or tee or wearing as a tube top, making them worth every penny.

Belly Bands can be purchased directly at TummyTankz.com for $24.95. They are currently having a sale on all solid colors making them $16.95!
