Made of stone

Skinny Buddha grey layers

Maternity wear does not have to be bland, bulky and boring. Give the pieces you already own another chance and a fun twist. What was once a loose summer dress can now become a baby bump hugging piece. Use layers for warmth and comfort but also for adding another dimension to the outfit. When opting for solid colors I always like to wear a bold lip color, or a statement jewelry piece, or both! I kept things casual with a pair of high top Converse, but if your dress is not that casual go ahead and wear some heels. You are bound to turn some heads wherever you go! Or in  my case, twirl in this over sized flowy cardigan while taking pictures and give people a proper reason to stare.

Home made body scrub

Skinny Buddha home made body scrub

Skin care routine is super important to me, especially now that I am pregnant. And while on a day to day basis I focus mostly on my face routine, a full body pampering is required from time to time. You don't have to go to a fancy spa and spend lots of money, you can do this by yourself in the comfort of your home. My favorite skin treatment is exfoliation, for which I use a very simple home made scrub.

Baby doll

Skinny Buddha maternity wear baby doll dress heart print trench coat

I haven't worn this baby doll dress in ages and I am so glad I rediscovered it in the back of my closet. And for once I can say it has been put to good use. I mean this doesn't get any cuter than with a baby bump inside. And I am sure my baby girl is feeling quite cozy in there, with plenty of room to breathe. I am quite surprised I can still wear my heart print trench coat as well, but then again my baby bump is quite small for 8 months I guess. Unfortunately the coat is sold out, but I left a link down under just in case you wanna keep an eye out for when it comes back in stock.

Isn't it ironic

Skinny Buddha maternity wear vest purple hat

Isn't it ironic how now that I am at home, with all the time in the world, I am at a lost for words? I can blame this on the weather, or on the pregnancy hormones, but the truth is there are days like these, when I just don't feel inspired to write. I guess it's hard talking about this outfit and remembering the sunny day these pictures where taken on while looking as the rain drops hit my living room window. Hopefully tomorrow the sun will be up again and maybe my energy level as well. I think the baby wants me to take a nap now. See ya!

I want to ride my bicycle

Skinny Buddha bicycle outfit

A few months ago I did a photo shoot for a brochure edited by Verde pentru biciclete, a local organisation that promotes bike riding as an eco alternative way to commute in and around the city. I did the styling for all 5 shoots and I wanted to showcase comfortable and stylish outfits that every girl can wear while bike riding. The intention to show range and creativity and I wanted the ensembles to easily go from spring to summer and to fall. Let me know which one is your favorite!

Rainbow warrior

Skinny Buddha maternity style rainbow stripes

Here's a shining and colorful outfit to brighten out your day! I know mine needs some cheering up. Dressing up in bold colors is always a great antidote for a rainy day. To make it even more fun I decided to play with stripes in different colors and widths. And while horizontal stripes are not always our friends, if you play them right you can actually enhance your figure and create a flattering effect. The slimmer ones are hugging my baby bump and are not making it look larger than they are, and the thicker ones draw the attention towards the legs and lengthen them. Hope you guys love this combo as much as I do!

sweater: thrifted
dress worn as skirt: Tiramisu alle Fragole

bag: Nowistyle

Without You I'm Nothing

Skinny Buddha bride purple wedding dress

My boyfriend and I got married a month ago. We wanted to keep things very simple, so we just went down to city hall and said I do in front of family and a few close friends. We had been together for 9 years with no intention to get married, but we figured with a baby on the way, we might as well take this step. I never fantasized about my wedding day and wearing the perfect white wedding dress, which to this day I think does not even exist, so there were no expectations and no worries about how this day was supposed to turn out. We spent a wonderful day surrounded by people we care about and who care about us, and that was all that mattered. Looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together and welcoming a new member into the family in a couple of months. Things could not be better!
