A few weeks ago I went shopping for some new clothes, finally admitting to myself it's going to take a little longer than I thought to lose these last 12 pounds of pregnancy weight. I'm not sure why it's harder this time around, but it is, so I decided to get a couple new pieces that fit my body as it is now.

There were tons of pretty spring pieces in the stores, this chiffon dress being one of them. The slip that came with it is a questionable length, but nothing a pair of yoga shorts couldn't fix! I love the romantic feeling this dress evokes when layered with the textured sweatshirt. The muted colours, the soft floaty layers, an injection of lace, all together it feels very ballet inspired. When the snow is completely gone I plan on wearing this dress with shoes similar to these dainty ballet flats.

Recently I downloaded the Bloglovin app to my phone and it is seriously the best thing ever! I like it way better than google reader, bookmarks etc. It's easy to organize and save posts and really intuitive to use. I don't know why it took me so long to download the app? I should have started using it way sooner!

  1. This is just such a cute look--so much of a boho chic vibe--and I am drooling over that coat!! So cute :) And how did I not know they had an app?! I totally need to download that!


  2. Isn't that normal? Loosing weight after the second child? Hmm, it must be hard. I say; go partially vegan :) (no dairy at all) and eat as much raw as you can. Do you know Fully Raw Kristina? Oh my, you'll LOVE it, so inspiration. This is her channel:

    Outfit wise you look so cute as always, definately a top I'd wear in a heartbeat! I love lacey shoulders, so sexy!

    Need to get that app :P....

    1. Oh, and PS: if you ever think of making a purchase from my store in the future, please let me know in advance so I can give you a discount :D. XXX

  3. Really a cute look! Well, I'm still a bid unsure how to go on with the blog, for this time, I decided to keep it and I'll go on posting my art :)

  4. It certainly does' look like you have any weight to lose. You look amazing. But it was harder with my second child, as well. I really love this look. That dress is so pretty!

  5. I don't think I'd really read blogs without that app! That bag is rawrsome! You still look gorgeous, even if you still want to slim down (you don't need to).

  6. You look great! I really love a cream.white, gray. tan color combo lately…color for me is pretty blah (except when it comes to kimonos;)

  7. The lace is so pretty on you, and loving the leopard!


  8. I seriously gasped over that second photo- I LOVE how the leopard coat looks with the delicate and sweet chiffon. Contrasts like that in outfits are my favorite. And now you're making me want to go out and stock up on some delicate spring items- spending bans are torture :/
