What a weekend! One of my closest friends is expecting her first daughter. Needless to say, her mother went all out for her baby shower. Since fall is her favorite season, the shower was filled with pumpkins, chocolate and of course, the color orange!

I have only ever been to a few baby showers, so I will be the first to admit that I was freaking out about what to wear. During a recent trip to J.Crew, a friendly worker told me about a sweater dress that she fell in love with at the store. Guys, I HATE sweater dresses.  I usually do not like how I look in them but this one is so flattering! If you are self-conscious of your mid-section as I am, don’t worry. This is a sweater dress that does indeed look great to wear!

My friend Deanne is also a kitty lover, so I knew she would appreciate my new kitty purse. I could you not like this purse, it is so freaking cute!! As a side note, I lost the “what’s in my purse” game since this purse is pretty tiny and I only put my tube of lipstick in it. It comes in one color and I totally recommend you get it as soon as you can. I am sure it is going to sell out (there are a lot of kitty lovers out there you know lol).


Dress: J.Crew in XXS (also available in petites) also available here // Purse: LC Lauren Conrad  // Shoes: BP. // Lipstick: M.A.C
