ABOUT THIS LOOK: I recut several vintage garments to create this look. For the jacket, I shortened the hem and added pockets. I love the way the sheerness of the skirt adds length AND interest – you can catch a glimpse of my legs. Get a similar look off the rack:
I am elated to finally share some news with you that Baxter and I have been keeping secret for the last few months: WE ARE EXPECTING A BABY GIRL! Little B.B. will be joining us this fall!
We decided to surprise our families with the news on our one year wedding anniversary. I sent out invitations for a “family anniversary brunch” and decorated our home for the cozy event (only immediate family was invited).
After we finished eating, Baxter stood to make a toast and we invited everyone to open the gifts that we had placed at their seats as place cards. The men opened framed sonograms and the girls opened gold necklaces with their new names as they related to Baby B: “D,” “Gigi” and “Aunt B.”
Baxter set up a discreet video camera for the room so we caught the entire event on camera. It was so fun to play it back that night and watch everyone’s reactions.
As I expect all moms would be, I am sentimental and so excited to meet Baby B this fall; I had a new “BB” necklace made and I have been wearing it since the announcement. Because this piece is so special to me, I want to share that joy with other expecting or new moms so I have partnered with fine jewelry designer, Maya Brenner, for an #MBDstyle giveaway! To enter:
