Aerie Slippers

I see you, Christmas, quietly trying to sneak up us. Ah ha! Jokes on you, Santa, my Christmas shopping is (mostly) complete! Keyword: mostly. Every year, it’s right around this time when I realize that I’ve either forgotten a gift or I come up with a great last minute idea. Luckily, most places still offer speedy shipping so there is still time for last minute shopping!

Maybe it’s the threat of a polar vortex or it’s just this cozy time of year, but I have pajamas on the brain. Heels? Nope. Sequins? Meh. Comfortable, warm PJs? Yep! Today’s gift guide is full of cute sleepwear for Christmas morning, a lazy new year’s day, or heck, even a random Wednesday night. Sweet dreams!

Cyber Week Gifts for Everybody

November 25, 2016

Now that the bun is out of the oven — both figuratively (see Monday’s baby bump pics!) and literally (Thanksgiving, you were delish!) — it’s time to turn our focus to that magical four letter word: SALE.

And not just any sale. CYBER WEEK SALES! Gone are the days of waking up at 5am on Black Friday to shop for electronics. Today I’m staying in my PJs as long as possible and shopping all of the amazing sales online — Old Navy, Shopbop, Baublebar, just to name a few. And then I’ll probably do it all over again on Cyber Monday. Who’s with me?

Cyber Week is also a good excuse to start thinking about gift ideas for the holidays. I have a couple ideas brewing that I wanted to share with you all, so settle into that cozy couch, rub your Thanksgiving food baby (or real baby!), and start shopping. Treat yourself, and everybody else!

There aren’t enough stylish fall layers and blanket scarves to hide my belly anymore…! That’s right, I’m thrilled to share the exciting news with you all: I’m pregnant!

Our little one is due in April and the past few months have been an exhilarating and hilarious journey into pregnancy, maternity fashion and dressing for my growing baby bump.

Before I start churning out a bunch of maternity outfit posts (stay tuned, lots in the queue!), let’s first take a trip down pregnancy lane.

A long trip, in fact. Let’s just say, the road to pregnancy has been long and winding. Getting pregnant – and staying pregnant – isn’t as easy as we had hoped. We’ve had some ups and downs but finally (finally!) I am sitting here happy and healthy at 19 weeks preggo and couldn’t be more thankful, thrilled, scared, and excited.

Sidenote, I’m not even a mom yet and already feel like dishing out some motherly advice: if you’re trying to get pregnant, remember to hold on tight to patience and faith. Lean on your partner, laugh at the challenges, eat lots of veggies, be patient, and daydream about the glorious day you’ll be able to slip on your first pair of maternity jeans and relish in just how comfy they are!

Like many pregnant women, I stubbornly wore my non-maternity jeans for as along as I could (with a little help from a friend’s hand-me-down Bellaband), but then I wised up and realized I wasn’t comfortable anymore. Elastic waistbands to the rescue! I was thrilled to find these non-mom “mom jeans” at Target. Paired with a plaid tunic from Motherhood Maternity and Target booties and I’m feeling like one stylish mama-to-be.

Over the next five months, I hope to continue to use Style Me Thrifty as a way to share my thrifty outfits as usual — just with the addition of a baby bump! If you’ve been down the pregnant road before, please leave a comment below with any pregnancy advice or maternity recommendations — I could use the help!

-Pregnancy Reflections-

Weeks: I’m currently 19 weeks along; baby is the size of a mango. We took these photos at 18 weeks since I was having a good hair day and the leaves were having a colorful leaf day!

Currently feeling: Easily hungry… and then easily full.

Quick thoughts on maternity fashion: I’m thankful for an older sister and her attic of maternity clothes! Between her hand-me-downs, a couple items from Poshmark, and a mother-daughter trip to Destination Maternity, I’m trying to embrace this chance to play around with fashion even more!

Pregnancy + blogging: I hope to keep this blog going strong throughout my pregnancy. It’s a nice distraction from all the baby gear research I have yet to start… If you’re an expectant mama out there, let me know what kind of posts you’d like to see. And if you’re not pregnant, don’t worry, I have plenty of non-maternity ideas in the works!
