She {hearts} Amoralia

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.

She {hearts} Gretchen Scott Designs

GSD

GSD_meI think I love almost everything that this designer has in their store. I’m a big fan of fun & colorful tunics, dresses, and cover-ups to add to my summertime wardrobe and everything they have is right down my alley! And to make it extra special, they have Mommy & Me clothes so my baby girl and I can match!

Gretchen Scott carries the “Laugh More Gripe Less. Ignore Critics. Say Yes. Order Dessert. Love Life” mantra and it’s tagged on every Gretchen Scott item. Known for her festive tunics and dresses, Gretchen inserts life and personality into her designs. Gretchen created a sustainable line of clothing that makes summer, holiday and warm climate dressing easy. Her clothes are about accessing a place that is chic, joyous, playful and fun. She looks at the clothing need realities of her customers: clothing that packs easily, transitions from day to night, office to dinner or cocktails, carpool to swimming pool. She said, “If you can give that, with clean lines and surprise elements – it’s a homerun.”

She finds inspriation from her travels across the world. Her designs reflect a global perspective with India being the biggest part. She feels the Indian sense of color, proportion and incredible embroidery is amazing. Hand printed, festive fabrics and vibrant inks define Gretchen Scott Designs’ look.

She {hearts} BINSI

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} Comparing Stella & Dot and Forever 21

I love buying fashion jewelry, and I consider it to be one of the best ways to update your “wardrobe” each season with the latest trends!  Of course for trendy accessories, it’s always a good idea to shop around so you don’t spend a lot.  It’s worth investing in classic pieces, but for “of the moment” pieces, it’s best to spend less!

I thought it might be fun to compare some pieces from Stella and Dot (great style!) and Forever 21 (great prices!).  Not everything is a “perfect match,” but I think you’ll find the comparison fun!

She {hearts} Yellow Bird Project

Yellow Bird Project LogoYou know those fun graphic T’s you often find. The type that have random drawings on them, of old school coke products or goofy vintage? I will be the 1st to admit I like them :) – although sometimes they can be a bit over done. To me its always nice to have one or two in your closet to mix in with your wardrobe and they almost always work for men and women, boy/girl. Its just versatile and who doesn’t like a bit of art that pops.

Well what if you took the artistic touch of some of those great T’s and put them to more use than some big national “brand.” How about using those T-shirts to help out a variety of charities but also spread the word about some great artist out there.

The Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based organization. They work with an amazing range of indie rock musicians to create unique t-shirt designs that benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the musicians.

I got one of their graphic hoodies and love it. It is super soft and comfortable. The pop of art on the front is very fun and unique as well. Very much a “Drea” piece.

They offer not only a great variety of t-shirts but also hoodies, buttons, books and more. All of which support the charities. So if you are looking for a fun new T, yet want to do more than just “buy something” – check out the line of great t-shirts and more at the Yellow Bird Project.

She {hearts} Sira & Mara

One of my favorite thing about accessories (and specifically jewelry) is that it allows me to embrace current fashion trends without investing in a whole new wardrobe!  Paired with a basic wardrobe piece like a black blazer, some on-trend fashion jewelry can take a look from basic to fabulous!

I’m glad I recently stumbled upon Sira & Mara, a site chock-full of fashion jewelry that is affordable and trendy.  The quality of the jewelry is what you would expect for the price point, but I was quite satisfied even after wearing my chain bracelet repeatedly.

Sira & Mara USA offers affordable fashion jewelry that suits any style!  Be sure to grab your favorite pieces right away, because their inventory is always changing!

She {hearts} Piccadilly Rose

Cute, unique, beautifully handmade hair accessories? Yes, please. Add in an upcycled, eco-friendly twist? I present to you: Piccadilly Rose.

Piccadilly Rose is an adorable shop featuring handmade hair accessories made from upcycled/recycled fabric, buttons, and materials. Lara, the lovely lady behind the adorableness (who happens to be a mama of four and a pretty sweet person in real life- trust me, I know!), not only makes items for the Piccadilly Rose shop but also more often makes custom hairpieces for brides or simply someone looking for a special, one of a kind hairpiece or clip. These are also the perfect hair accessories for little girls!

I was fortunate enough to attend Piccadilly Rose‘s launch party a few months ago and was able to see and try on many unique pieces. I was so impressed by the quality of the pieces and wanted to scoop them all up and take them home! I couldn’t go home without one of the gorgeous headbands, so I picked the one in the following photo. My three year old daughter was also delighted by the headband, and it easily fits her little head, too! My friends are also rocking PR headbands!

Piccadilly Rose‘s unique, upcycled hair accessories are the perfect finishing touch to any look, from a casual day to a night out. Be sure to visit Piccadilly Rose’s blog, Facebook page, and also follow PR on Twitter!
