Well, I became part of the Mansur Gavriel club. I've long debated acquiring the ultimate #ITbag. But, the real question became which style did I want? Bucket or tote? Bucket or tote? For now, I'm team tote. The classic shape and practicality of the tote convinced me. I'm in love with the caramel color and the smooth leather. It's a leather you can tell will grow finer as it ages. The straps are at that "perfect" length where you can still access the interior whether you're wearing the bag on your shoulder or just toting it along. 

I'm still debating whether I'll end up with the bucket bag. I've tried it on several different occasions and I always fall in love with the concept of the bag each time. So, who knows what might be in my future (hint, hint).

I don't take this lightly, my friends. This #HappyGirlHappyBag thing is forreal.

As you can imagine, my focus has been all about baby lately. As the months wind down to weeks and the inevitable arrival of my baby comes, I can't help but get my mind and body prepared for the indescribable change in life. Until then, I am still trying to maintain aspects of my life that aren't all about baby - going out with girlfriends, sipping on (no gin) and juice, and eating at restaurants while I'm still "sans baby." 

I know life will seriously change (mostly for the better, right?) but I can still enjoy living life being blissfully ignorant about all the unknowns I'll encounter.

Experimenting with Rocksbox

Have you tried Rocksbox, yet? In case you haven't heard, it's a box of jewels you can "rent" based on a style survey you fill out. You can wear the jewelry for as long you want until you decide to return the jewels or keep the ones you want at a discounted price. 

You can try a FREE box for yourself if you use this code:  nancybff101

I'd like to call this round up - baby food.

Wednesday Whim - Floating Flower Garden

all images via teamLab

Talk about a floral wonderland. Over 2,300 floating flowers encompass a massive white room inside the Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. The floral installation was created by teamLab and invites visitors to explore a tranquil, beautiful and interactive environment. As a person walks through the floral maze, the flowers closest to the visitor slowly rises. As the person continues to move, the vast amount of flowers moves with them and forms a hemisphere shape with the person in the middle. If several people are nearby then the dome spaces link up to form a single space.

These photos are incredible but check out the video below to really get a sensation of the space!

Maternity Stripes

The ease of this dress is something I couldn't pass up. I love that I can just throw it on and not fuss over belly bands or comfort. Sure, it's another striped item in my closet but, that ain't a bad thing.

Knit Blue Resources

The weather in SF has been (uncharacteristically) warmer than usual this time of the year. Combine that with my higher-than-usual-body-temperatures and you get a person who runs hot all the time. 

As I've chronicled my pregnancy style on this blog, you likely noticed I'm all about being resourceful. 
This Derek Lam x Kohl's knit skirt has been on the verge of being retired with every closet purge but somehow, it stays active. It's never quite fit "right' on me (a bit loose all around to be incredibly flattering) but at this stage of pregnancy, I can hike it up and make it work. Who knows how long this skirt will stay in my closet but, I'm definitely appreciating it right now.
