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!

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!

Skinny Buddha Zara purple dress maternity

Whoa, already 30 weeks pregnant!!! Just a week and a half away from my last day at work and then I'm going to enjoy my well deserved pre-natal leave. It's been a crazy busy year so far: new job and responsibilities, tons of travel, new things to learn and interesting people along the way. Now it's time to take it easy, get things ready and get tons of rest as well cause you never know when you're gonna get a full night's sleep once the baby is born. It's been a fun ride so far, no sickness, no nausea, no nothing, and now I am very much enjoying my baby girl practicing her ninja kicks or dance moves, or whatever it is she is doing in there. With every new doctor's appointment I see how much she's grown and developed and it's just amazing. Can't wait to meet my little dragonfly in person!

To dye or not to dye your hair during pregnancy

Skinny Buddha Indian shirt

My outfit today is clearly influenced by my recent trip to India. I love the fact that the shirt dress is comfy enough and gives me  freedom of movement, and it's a pieces that definitely stands out. But what I want to talk about today is the debate over dying your hair during pregnancy. I recently paid a visit to the hair salon and decided to change things up a bit. I got rid of the last remains of turquoise in my hair, and got quite a substantial trim. I decided against coloring my roots, not because I think dying your hair during pregnancy is unsafe, but because I want to give my hair a break. I did some research and there aren't any conclusive studies out there regarding the harmful effect of hair dye, in fact most dyes are not highly toxic and therefore safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.  Of course, you should consult your doctor in case you have doubts. I have been dying my hair non stop since 10th grade, that's 16 years! I figured it won't be long before I start getting gray hairs and coloring will be a necessity, but until then, here's the perfect chance to see what my natural color looks like. I haven't seen it in ages! And I know this is going to sound strange, and it's not like she's going to remember any of this or realize what she is seeing, but I want my daughter to see me in a more natural look rather than all these crazy colors I've been experimenting with lately.
