Mode Monday: Casual Sunday


[cardigan: c/o label + thread / capris: a pea in the pod / cami: old navy / boat shoes: c/o kimmie smith x sebago / bag: marc by marc jacobs / watch: michael kors / cuff: ann taylor / bracelets: made with love in africa / necklace: c/o guy & eva / sunglasses: ray-ban / nails: essie lapis of luxury / lips: icicle lip gloss c/o mary kay]

I think my last Mode Monday post may have been a tad misleading.  I am not pregnant in heels (often).  Typically, I’m running around in flats or sneakers.  Shocking, I know but Bubba and I are on the go!  Right now, I’m clocking some serious mileage in these boat shoes fellow Cosmo girl Kimmie Smith designed for Sebago Spring 2012.

Another great find is a new knitwear company called LABEL + thread that generously gifted me this lightweight cardi.  I had the pleasure of meeting the designers/founders last week to see the Spring and Fall 2012 collections.  More details to come later this week with a sweet little giveaway.

Aaaand, I got another new bag.  If I’m going to gain a bunch of weight, I’m going to have great accessories, dammit.  Besides, how could I resist this color?

If you’re linking up with #MondayMingle, welcome! One participant this week will win the Carson necklace from Guy & Eva with genuine sapphire, champagne, topaz, and olivine crystals. Have a glamorous week!

UPDATE: The winner of the Guy & Eva necklace is #44 Momma Go Round.  Congrats!
