The Nap Dress

the-nap-dress

2020 has been a wild year, and multiple trends have emerged as a result of our new routines and quarantined lifestyles. One such trend is the nap dress! And I have to say, I’m feeling very lucky that this trend took off in the middle of my pregnancy. What is a nap dress you ask? As Who What Wear describes them, nap dresses “can be slipped on without fuss, are comfortable and non-restrictive, can be worn without a bra, and tend to suit all body shapes. They blur the lines between what you might wear to bed and what you might wear to a fancy brunch.”

While we’ve been staying at home, the nap dress is perfect for an afternoon on the couch, but also amazing for running errands in comfort.  I was recently gifted my very own nap dress from Hill House Home from the girls at Spanx who wanted me to have something comfortable for my pregnancy and beyond. I recently wore mine to a mini-vacation at the Ritz Carlton Lake Oconee and it was perfect for strolling the grounds, going to lunch, and even relaxing in our room.  For my expecting mamas-to-be, these dresses are perfect for a growing belly, for nursing after pregnancy, and for staying cute well beyond the post-partum process. You can find my style at the link below, but there are many nightgown chic options to choose from. Let me know what you think about the trend in the comments below!

Favorites with Mark & Graham

Earlier in the season, I shared some of my favorite fashion and organizational pieces from Mark & Graham. Between the luxurious bags and the gorgeous monograms, I can’t get enough! As I prepare for my next big adventure of motherhood, I wanted to share some of the other Mark & Graham favorites that have caught my eye recently. 

Nesting is real, and it’s not just for mothers to be! Everyone wants their home to be as put-together as possible with the holidays around the corner. Adding a flair of personalization can start before guests even step foot in your home. I was immediately drawn to a new doormat for the front door, to refresh my front steps and give the house a cleaner look for the season. Of course, Mark & Graham specializes in beautiful monograms, so I opted for a style with our last name and a stunning laurel design.  If the wreath isn’t quite your style, there are many other varieties to choose from! 

Additionally, I recently got myself a new iphone case, which makes me feel like I have an entirely new phone! Whether you opted for a new phone this season, one is on your Christmas list, or you just want a new case to refresh your look – I love this personalized option! In a variety of colors and patterns, there’s one for every person in the family. I’m also obsessed with the card case that’s both functional and stylish! 

With the holidays right around the corner, there are so many gift possibilities for the family (or yourself)! I know I’m putting together my wish-list now, but had to share my current favorite picks! Let me know if there is anything you dolls have your eye on in the comments below! xo

Thank you to Mark & Graham for partnering on this post.

How I Keep My Clothes Cleaner and Fresher with Arm & Hammer

2020 has been an unconventional year, to say the least. Many of us are working from home, everyone’s routines have been altered, and health and wellness are at the forefront of all of our minds. The last point is especially true for me since Jason and I are expecting our first child in December! While we’ve been working from home, we’ve seen ourselves dry clean less and start washing clothes more. And since I’ve been doing more laundry, I’ve started to pay more attention to how many times I’m washing and the products I’m using to keep my family safe and our home clean. That is why I use ARM & HAMMER™ Clean & Simple™ Liquid Laundry Detergent and Arm & Hammer™ Clean & Simple™ Scent Booster in Crisp Clean™ ​ at Publix!

I was drawn to these products because of the established ARM & HAMMER™ name, so I knew this product was quality and wouldn’t compromise on clean! I also love that ​ARM & HAMMER Clean & Simple Laundry Detergent and Scent Booster both offer high quality​ at a smart, low price! Since I’m pregnant, I’ve been trying to transition to products with fewer ingredients, and this detergent does just that. ARM & HAMMER™ Clean & Simple™ Liquid Laundry Detergent offers a powerful clean, with 6 essential ingredients and water. It’s got NO dyes, phosphates, GMOs, added preservatives, brighteners or parabens. ARM & HAMMER Clean & Simple Liquid Laundry Detergent is EPA Safer Choice Certified, which means it is safer for your family. ​It’s a win/win! But don’t let the fewer ingredients fool you – it still offers a powerful clean and packs a stain-fighting punch!

Recently, I’ve found myself washing 1-2 times a week. A big load on the weekend and then a mid-week load to keep clothes from piling up! I’m also loving the fact that because the detergent smells so good, our closets feel fresher! And speaking of scent, I’ve become so in love with the crisp fragrance that I also opted for the Arm & Hammer Clean & Simple Scent Booster – Crisp Clean. Again, it’s got no harsh chemicals, but keeps my clothes smelling fresher for longer. It’s the first time I’ve used a scent booster, and I can honestly say I’m not going back! On top of all of these benefits, as a fashion blogger I just need my clothes to look great! I’m so happy that I found a great detergent that combines a powerful clean with only a few ingredients, and I can feel good about how I’m protecting my growing family! If you want to try these new products, you can find them in your laundry aisle at Publix! 

I’ve even got a special offer at the following link for those excited to try! Check out this offer and you can click to add the products directly to your cart.
