    Yay, I love that you’re moving more toward blog posts vs Instagram! I’m pregnant and bought a minimal amount of maternity clothes, especially since I’m home all the time, but have been enjoying the inspo I got from your class to mix it up as much as I can. This week I wore some non-maternity dresses that still fit and a cute leggings + long button up + sweater blazer combo.

    • Natalie says:

      Thank you! So glad you’re excited about the shift in where content ends up. So glad you enjoyed the class and felt like it helped you with your pregnancy style. That was such a hard season for me to dress myself, and it makes me happy to know I’ve somehow made it a bit easier for you!

  2. Jane says:

    wait… did you guys move?! did i miss that blog post?!

    • Natalie says:

      Yep, we moved! I had shared about it on Instagram a while back but decided I am not sharing much about the house for privacy reasons. Plus it’s more fun to just enjoy it with my family and not feel like it’s “work,” you know?

  3. Katie says:

    Love them all! I am 12.5 weeks pregnant so I am in the in between stage where my jeans don’t fit but pregnancy jeans fall down 🙈 So I have been trying to style leggings the best way I can haha. You definitely pop earlier with your second kid!

  4. Christina says:

    I love seeing your daily outfits. I might have to get the woven Claire V. bag this year. I wore a black J.Crew tee with slight puff sleeve, midi denim skirt from madewell, black mules and a Sabina Savage silk scarf tied around my ponytail and just felt like “me” in it.

    • Natalie says:

      The Clare V woven bag is one of my all-time favorites and I wear it SO MUCH in the spring and summer months. Also that outfit sounds ADORABLE. Love it.

  5. Heather Anderson says:

    I am so happy to hear all of your updates, and the intention behind it all! I am super excited to follow where your passion leads on the blog and beyond, I am truly inspired by it all. I wore an olive green parka jacket by jcrew this week, and it made me smile…it was 0 degrees in MN, and in a land of black coats picking out children up from preschool, I felt colorful and joyful ☺️

    • Natalie says:

      Yay! Thanks so much for being here. I appreciate you! And that’s so awesome about your parka — fashion can be a really powerful way to express ourselves and feel more true to who we are and it sounds like you’re doing exactly that!

  6. Katrien says:

    I love this post so much! Thank you for being so honest about your intentions with instagram and blogging. I value this so much! After a long period of wearing ‘comfy’ clothes – a nice word for sweatpants – I started wearing jeans again this week, and I feel so much better. Yesterday, I even bought some skin care 🙂 Thank you for being such an inspiration

    • Natalie says:

      Thank you! And I’m so glad that you’re getting dressed in “real clothes” again (haha) and feeling better. I find that’s so true for me personally. I still wear “comfy” clothes, but I do so intentionally when I’m wanting to relax or lounge on the couch with my family, not as a default when I’m at home.
