Five on Friday

I'm linking up again to share five things I am loving this week...


Since the weather has cooled down here I've been wearing flats instead of sandals and wowza I have developed some blisters.  My feet haven't been in real shoes in about 6 months so I am currently loving these Band-Aid blister healers- they not only block the blister but also help to heal it so you can keep wearing your shoes. 



I decided to help me feel normal again I would purchase a pair of pants without an elastic waist!  (I'm not going to lie though elastic waist pants are amazing in their own right!)  These jeans are perfect.  They come up high enough that they cover the pouch/muffin top I still have but don't come up too high that they resemble "mom" jeans.   To top it off they are currently on sale at ShopBop here.  

3. Straws
This one is totally random but prior to getting pregnant I drank water all the time. I loved it and had no problem exceeding the recommended 8 glasses a day. Once I got pregnant and the nausea kicked in I had the hardest time drinking even one glass of water.  I basically just forced myself to drink it through out my pregnancy. I thought it would be better postpartum but it hasn't and now that I'm breastfeeding I need more water than ever.  (who knew breastfeeding made you sooo thirsty!?) so I have started using straws.   This sounds dramatic but they're amazing!  They have helped me so much and made my water drinking that much easier.

4. Lilly Pulitzer Elsa Top
 
How gorgeous is this blouse?  I absolutely love it!  I don't love the price tag of $158 for a shirt but it really would be a fun addition to my closet.  I'm thinking of getting my sister to split it with me and we can share it. If any of you buy it please tell me how amazing it is so I can live vicariously through you. 

5. Baby Gap Jersey Pants

These are some of the sofest pants I have ever felt!  Since the weather is cooling down I was on the search for some cute but comfy pants for Miller and these Baby Gap ones do the trick.  They are so soft and slide on and off easily for diaper changes.  They also come in solid and stripe so the possibilities are endless.  I picked up the orange and navy stripe above along with a solid navy pair.

  1. Stopping by from 5 on Friday Link Up! I drink everything out of straws! I'm not sure exactly what got me into the habit but I can't stand to drink things straight out of the glass!

    I never drink out of straws. My old roomie told me they make you get wrinkles sooner around your mouth. Prob not true, but freaked me out!

  10. Omg saaame here on the straw situation! I swear I can chug a glass of water if I have a straw, if not it takes me hours to finish. Such a funny difference it makes. And totally love those baby gap pants! I picked some of those up on my "It's a Boy shopping spree!" :)
