in my bag: malibu

in my bag // malibu // smitten studioRupe and I have a wedding to go to in Malibu this weekend, and while it is not too far of a drive for us, I thought we should make a fun little mini-vaca out of it. I am becoming increasingly aware that these romantic weekend trips will probably be put on hold for a long while after baby comes, so I am going to fit in as many as we can until then.  I found a little cottage on AirBnB that is tucked up in the mountains and while I can’t wait to celebrate the newlyweds, I will also be looking forward to some calm respite in the woods.

In my bag is a mix of maternity and non-maternity wear. I can still fit into most regular tees and tops but at 21 weeks I’ve made the cross-over to maternity dresses and jeans. I have been loving Asos and TopShop for the mama-to-be clothes as they are pretty reasonably priced, but also fashion forward instead of frumpy and blah. I am to the point where I don’t feel very attractive in this crazy changing body and having cute clothing options are definitely a help.

Sidenote: I have been asked a lot about what camera I use and while all my instagram and most of my travel photos are just shot on my iPhone, my interior shots on the blog and style posts are taken on my Canon 7D (which I included above). Also, some of you have asked about a tutorial on my editing process for my iPhone photos and I promise I will put one together soon!

    Sarah, I am a long-time reader from England and I’m so excited to read about this next chapter of your life … as a mama of two, I just wanted to reach out and say that there are definitely moments during every pregnancy when the crazy changing body makes us ladies feel, well, blah (and sometimes just plain weird), but I think it helps to remember what a truly amazing thing that body is doing! Nothing is more graceful and womanly than making a child. And for what it’s worth, I think you are handling it with elegance and style. I hope you have a great weekend xxx

  • Awe thank you! and you are so right… It really is something amazing what our bodies can do!

  • Hi Sarah, yes please, I’d love for you to do the tut on how you edit your iPhone pictures. Oh and you look amazing at 21 weeks, doesn’t the time fly, that bubby will be here in no time!
