Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Styled | The Teal Dress

DSC00004-edit Jordan took these photos of me at the beginning of April. My how the bump has grown! As you might remember, I received a box from BUMPstyle  (a maternity clothing subscription service) which included several different outfits (1,2,3). You can read more about how their subscription service works here!

This dress from Jules & Jim was my favorite from the bunch. The fabric was extremely soft (which now really matters as I continue to grow into my third trimester) and teal is one of my preferred colors. I don't wear a lot of color regularly, but I have a hard time turning away from teal.


If Jordan and I had a wedding to attend this summer, I would wear this combination: easy cotton dress, comfortable heals and a clutch just big enough to carry the essentials. For a casual weekend jaunt, I'd throw on a pair of metallic flats and a jean jacket. In my opinion pairing a jean jacket with any dress makes it slightly more casual.

My stylist, Hannah, did a fabulous job sending me unique pieces that were flattering and versatile. Thanks again BUMPstyle box!


^ This clutch is one of my favorite antique store purchases.


^ Last summer I found a dupe for clogs at Old Navy. They are surprisingly comfortable and satisfied my clog needs until I purchased these shoes last month.
