Fall is just around the corner and although we’re still experiencing some pretty hot weather over in our neck of the woods, we somehow managed to get a couple of days this week that were much cooler than normal. For those days, I love mixing summer and fall pieces together.

Style-The-Bump-TheMotherOverload.com-Fall2015I’m really digging this high neck LBD which is also perfect for fall with leggings and these suede ankle booties with fringe I scored for only $24.99! I paired this fall/summer look with a floppy hat and my favorite crossover handbag from Steve Madden.

Style-The-Bump-TheMotherOverload.com-Fall2015I started getting them on my cheeks and nose when I got pregnant with our first and it’s definitely getting worse with baby #2. It’s so tough to cover up with makeup without it looking like I have accidental blotches of mascara but looks like I’m not alone on this. According to an article written by What To Expect, “this condition affects 50 to 75 percent of expectant mothers.” I know it’s all part of being pregnant and the hyperpigmentation is something that can eventually be corrected so for the time being, I’m learning to embrace these motherhood love spots. At the end of the day, there are more meaning moments that will come from them and I’m honestly thankful and blessed to be able to have these little loves of mine.Style-The-Bump-TheMotherOverload.com-Fall2015

  • […] if you follow me, you might have noticed I bought these booties in black a few weeks back (click here to see blog post). I figured if they’re comfortable enough to wear during my pregnancy, I might as well get […]

what do you think?

Find out all the other reasons why this brightening eye cream is my new fav on our latest blog post! #heybrighteyes #olay @olay #cvsbeauty #goodmorning
  • #sponsored As a mom, I’m constantly struggling with pulling our girls away from the screens and shifting their focus to pretend play. Surely, I’m not the only one dealing with this right? 🙋‍♀️

So, you can just imagine the excitement that went on in my little home office when I received an invitation to be a guest at a roundtable with a select group of influencers — and child development experts in conjunction with Melissa from Melissa & Doug and Parents Magazine in NYC! 🗽More so as we love all the @melissaanddougtoys pretend play toys. Plus, I’m looking forward to hearing more about the movement that is at the heart of the Melissa + Doug brand: the importance of play — in all its forms. And to share with you all the tips and recommendations. .

  • Can you believe the holidays are just around the corner? Where did the time go? We're definitely excited over here and are getting a head start. Starting with our traditional holiday ‪pj's‬. You all know we love matching so when the girls unboxed these adorable Emoji mommy+me Holiday ‪pj's‬ from @childrensplace they were so excited and couldn't wait to put them on. And truthfully, I couldn't either. Plus, they're ultra soft and cozy too!

  • The weather is finally starting to cool down in Southern California. Actually, let me rephrase that. The weather is finally cooling down in the evenings and early mornings around here. 🤣

So that means it’s all about cozy sweaters & all the hot coffee. ☕️ Trust me when I say this cute color block sweater has been on repeat. Check out our latest post on how I found it. It’s so inexpensive. 😉👏 And do you have anything currently on repeat too? 😁#sweaterweather 📸 @lilyro_
  • I was hesitant to post a photo this morning. I really wanted to talk about Fall and all the cute sweaters I’m currently loving. Plus all the hot coffee I’m looking forward to finally sip on, but my heart is weighing so much right now. 💔

The incident that occurred last night here in Southern CA is senseless, heartbreaking and I don’t want my girls growing up thinking this is the new norm. I want to do better for them for our country. HOW can we put a stop to this?! 💔💔💔 #heartbroken #thousandoaksoaks
  • Because creating art with food is fun! 🤩🦃

Ok, truth is my OCD is constantly chirping in the back of my mind saying “ugh but what about the mess the girls will make?!” Then I really have to focus on all the positives. They’re using they’re imagination it will help w/ their social & cognitive skills. So yeah, bring on the mess. 🤗 Besides, I’m sure I’ll miss it when they leave the nest. 😭 #happythanksgiving #kidproject #activitiesforkids #healthyfood #thanksgivingdinner #thanksgiving
