IMG_9906.jpg

Shop this look

It's finally here: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public! Click here to head to Nordstrom's website and start shopping!!

I'm going to be sharing all of my picks from the sale here in this post! Items sell out FAST!! So, definitely grab what you like right away (just putting it in your shopping cart doesn't save it - you have to actually purchase it!). Nordstrom has the BEST return policy, so you can definitely return whatever you don't end up wanting to keep! Plus, shipping is FREE! So I'd suggest that if you see something you want in YOUR size, BUY IT. You can make lots of separate orders because shipping is free so it doesn't matter.

The point is: snag the things you want RIGHT AWAY. They will sell out FAST! ...like, within hours.

Also, be sure to head to my Instagram (@annamcohenblog) and take a look at my try-on that I did of everything that I ordered from the sale! It's saved in my highlights under 'Nordstrom Sale' and I talk a lot about fit, comfort, sizing, etc... I linked to everything in my try-on so it's super easy to shop each item as well!

Ok, so below are all of my top picks from the sale! I'm including EVERYTHING that I love/that I ordered and I hope these items will be in stock!! You will have to just click on each picture below to see if it is in stock and what sizes and colors are available!

Hi friends!

I wanted to share this beautiful little white dress from Shop Hello Fashion with you! It's NOT a maternity dress, but look how great it works with a bump!! I'm wearing my regular size Small, so I'd say it runs big. But it definitely is supposed to have that drape-y oversized look. I'm excited to be able to wear this next Spring and Summer when I'm NOT pregnant, as well!

I love finding cute non-maternity pieces that work while pregnant, and this dress is just perfection. It's lined, so not see through, and it's very very comfortable and light-weight.

Best part is, that Shop Hello Fashion gave me a code for you all to use so that you can get 15% off any purchase from their site!! Just use the code FAMILY15 at checkout! With my code, this dress is LESS THAN $50 ... isn't that crazy?? Such a good deal for such a beautiful dress, I can hardly believe it! Click here for the dress

This dress also comes in a beautiful pink color ... I might have to grab it! I love it so much.

These fun sunglasses are also from Shop Hello Fashion (click here for the sunglasses). With my code FAMILY15 they are UNDER $14! I love how different and cool they are!

Shop Hello Fashion is one of my favorite shops - they have such cute stuff. I have this 'Mom Life Is the Best Life' sweatshirt (click here for the sweatshirt) and it is seriously my favorite - so cozy! I also especially love this, this, and this. Also really want this and this for me and James!

Don't forget to use the code FAMILY15 at checkout for 15% off your purchase!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Fourth of July is right around the corner! It crept up on me - I can’t believe it is next week!

I scooped up this really cute, really comfortable NON-MATERNITY dress from Target to wear. We have absolutely zero plans for the 4th, so I’ll be wearing this around the house. BUT, at least I’ll feel festive! Click here for my dress

I got James an adorable star t-shirt to wear! He LOVES stars so much - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is his favorite song. We sing it every night before he goes to bed, and he wanders around singing it throughout the day. So, when I saw this star shirt I knew he would be SO excited about it…and he was! I am thinking about getting this shirt so that I can match him - click here for the adult star shirt, and use the code FAMILY15 to get 15% off! Unfortunately, James' shirt is no longer in stock, but click here for a bunch of other cute toddler 4th of July options!

In case you are still looking for outfit ideas for the 4th, I’ve rounded up a few different pieces that I think would be perfect for the holiday!

Click each picture below for details/pricing.

What are YOUR plans for the Fourth of July? How will you be celebrating? When James is older, it will be fun to take him to a fireworks show. But, for now, we’ll all be in bed by 7pm! haha

Everything You Need To Know About The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

The above pictures feature just a FEW of my favorite pieces from last year's sale!

I can’t even explain how ridiculously excited I am for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I mean…it’s kind of embarrassing really! haha I LOVE this sale! Last year, I had an absolute blast putting together content and shopping the sales to share the BEST pieces with you all! I am definitely looking forward to doing it again this year!

I thought I’d put together this post to tell you guys all the info. that you need to know about the upcoming sale. The catalog was just released and I am having so much fun browsing through and picking out what I’m going to buy and what I want to share with you all!

First things first: When is the sale?

The sale is open 8 days early for Nordstrom cardholders. For cardholders, the sale starts on July 12th and is open exclusively to you until July 19th. Then, on July 20th, the sale opens up to the public and goes until August 5th.

On August 6th, all prices go back up!

It REALLY behooves you to be a cardholder if you are at all interested in shopping the sale. Things sell out FAST…and I mean FAAAASSSSTTT during this sale! After a day or two, it’s likely a lot of the best things will be sold out. So it’s really important to jump when you see something you want, and by being a Nordstrom cardholder, you get first dibs.

You can get information and sign up to be a cardholder by clicking here.

What exactly is included in the sale?

This sale is seriously unlike any other - no really! Usually sales include pieces that have already been out that are now discounted before they are taken off the shelves.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is made up of NEW PIECES that are being discounted FIRST, before they go up to their real prices. So, this sale is all of the incredible NEW pieces for Fall that are about to hit Nordstrom, from all of the best brands, and they are being released FIRST during the sale for heavily discounted prices!

This sale is the PERFECT opportunity to stock up on basics like jeans, tees, handbags, sweaters, and shoes, as well as all the new trends for Fall and Winter!

I seriously just can't wait! I'm like a kid around Christmas time ... I will definitely be pulling all-nighters again to share the very best of the best with you guys! I'll be doing try-ons of my purchases as well, so be sure you're following me on Instagram: @annamcohenblog

Mommy Monday: 18 Weeks Pregnant With Number Two!

IMG_7072.jpg

Happy Monday!

I'm 18 weeks, two days pregnant and feeling great! I had an ultrasound last thursday to check my cervix since having the cerclage, and all looks perfect. My cervix was still over 4 cm and completely closed! I'm so thankful! I also got the clear to begin (gentle) workouts again... woohoo!

We go in next monday for our anatomy scan, so they will check my cervix again at that appointment. With my last pregnancy, we discovered my shortened cervix (only 1.2cm!!) at my 20 week anatomy scan, so it will be nice to pass that point in this pregnancy with no complications! Read about my experience during my last pregnancy here.

We also will be confirming the gender at the anatomy scan, so expect our gender reveal next week! We are so excited to FINALLY share what we are having with all of you! Go ahead and leave your guess in the comments: Boy or Girl?!?! :)

It feels so nice to be able to start easing into some workouts again! I've been doing prenatal workouts from Knocked Up Fitness... click here to learn more about the workouts. They are amazing for pregnant mamas! Definitely check it out!

Sorry that this post is going up a day late! This past week/weekend was packed!

Ben was at training for his new position at work, so James and I stayed with my parents all last week. We went to the tulip fields, and also visited a really cute park with a little farm. James LOVED seeing all of the animals! He was so adorable - he kept going and sitting down next to the chickens. And at the tulip fields, he had so much fun with all of the other little kids! He and the other little boys kept chasing each other and yelling in each other's faces. James had the time of his life, haha.

We also had a fun play date with some of our friends from music class yesterday. I love watching James play with other kids! He is so adorable and I love watching him have fun and interact and explore!

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday - just my quick, monthly check. All was well! The baby's heartbeat sounded great and everything is going as it should be! On Thursday I have an ultrasound to check on my cervix. Prayers that there are no changes since I had the cerclage put in a few weeks ago!

Ok, I'll get to the survey in just a moment, but real quick: how beautiful is this dress?? You guys, it is not a maternity dress, but it works PERFECTLY with a bump! Win! And it comes in the most beautiful green floral print as well. Click here for the dress

Click here for my dress (Comes in so many colors and under $100! It's my favorite dress ever!) // Click here for my shoes // Click here for my necklace (It's customized with James' name on it - you can get any name put on it! I love it so much!)

I hope you all had the happiest Easter!

We had such a fun weekend! Saturday we had a lazy morning and we all watched Homeward Bound together in our jammies and it was just such a nice, cozy day. Yesterday, James and I went to church with my parents. Then later, Ben James, Gunner, and I headed to my parents' house for dinner with extended family and an Easter egg hunt for little James. It was James' first Easter egg hunt and he did SO well!! He loved it! My cousins set it up for him and it was the cutest most fun thing!

29572954_10214369515063525_6979301039191127316_n.jpg

I was seriously dying over James' Easter outfit and how CUTE he looked!! His little tie was just the most adorable thing. I want to dress him up in fancy clothes every day!! His shirt is my favorite color - mint! And his slacks are a bit big so they will fit him for all of our events coming up through the summer!

I'm also so obsessed with the dress I wore - it's not a maternity dress. I barely squeezed myself into the dress and had to have Ben zip me up, haha but it worked with my little bump!! It's just the most feminine dress with such pretty detailing and I love the length. It's very classy and elegant and perfect for any occasion. It comes in a lot of colors and is under $100 which is SUCH a great price for the quality!! (Click here for my dress)

So, I am officially in the Second Trimester now!! Hooray!!

This week, I'm getting my cerclage, so please send all your thoughts and prayers and good vibes my way! I'm pretty nervous for the surgery and just want to get it over with!

Oh also, I found the BEST maternity jeans ever...seriously. If you're pregnant, GET THEM!

They are really comfortable (like leggings), and are super cute and actually fit well unlike a lot of maternity jeans. They come in several colors/ washes. Click here for the jeans!

Now, for this week's survey:

How far along: 14 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: 6 lbs

Maternity clothes? Yes! Like these maternity jeans I've been raving about!! (Click here for jeans)

Stretch marks? No new ones!

Sleep: Not great - SO congested!!

Best moment this week: James doing his Easter egg hunt! And watching James during the church service yesterday! He's so sweet!

Have you told family and friends: Yes!

Movement: I *think* a few little flutters - but none that I'm absolutely positive about yet. I have an anterior placenta this time, so it will probably be harder for me to feel movement until later on.

Food cravings: Pineapple!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really!

Have you started to show yet: Oooooh yes. ;)

Gender: We know! But we're not announcing yet! ;)

Labor Signs: No.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? Off! Wearing a place holder ring now! :p

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!

Symptoms: My weird dreams are gone, yay! Now symptoms include congestion, weakness, shortness of breath, and moodiness.

Have a great week, friends!!

Best Toddler Halloween Costumes!

IMG_6198.JPG
IMG_6200.JPG

IMG_6209.JPG
IMG_6210.JPG

Sorry for being MIA again. I've just really felt conflicted with social media and blogging lately...I mean, life is what is happening right in front of you...right NOW. It's NOT what's happening on your phone or computer...it's not about "keeping up" with Instagram, or spending endless hours taking and editing photos and creating content. I love blogging and social media - they're my JOB, and I feel really blessed for that. But I definitely LOVE being a mom, watching my little James grow and learn, and spending quality time in the NOW with my family MORE. SO, I've been stepping back a bit. But, I'm still here! I'll still be cranking out new content when I feel like it. But if I'm quiet, you can just know that it's because I am busy LIVING this beautiful life of mine. :)

Ok, down to the point of today's post:

There is hardly a single thing cuter than a baby in a Halloween costume! Am I right?? This year, James is still too little to go trick-or-treating, so we aren't investing in a full-fledged costume. But I did get him these really cute glow-in-the-dark skeleton jammies for him to wear all day! Unfortunately, his jammies sold out, but they are SOO cute on him!

It's fun because his music class is on Tuesdays and this year, Halloween falls on a Tuesday!! So all of the kids in his class get to dress up (parents too! - I'm going to rock this sweatshirt, or if I'm feeling really bold, I may dress up like Elsa from Frozen!), and J can wear his skeleton jammies to class!

I had a lot of fun looking for costumes for James this year, and even though I ended up going with the skeleton jammies, I found some ADORABLE ones. I wanted to share them with you guys in case you need a last minute idea for your little one. And be sure to order TODAY to make sure it arrives in time for Halloween!

What is your little one being for Halloween this year? How old were your kids when you first took them trick-or-treating?

**Thank you to Cuddl Duds for sponsoring this post!**

It's FAAAALLLLLLL. I'm so basic when it comes to fall...I love all of the pumpkin spice, the decorations, the colorful leaves, the pumpkin patches, apple cider, hats, boots, sweaters, cuddling up by the fire, and being COZY. Fall is my favorite season and I am really really happy that it's finally here!

I tend to run cold...anyone else?? I'm always FREEZING, and Ben is always laughing at me because he says it's hot but I am shivering and layering up to get warm! haha I love wearing cozy, soft layers and curling up by the fireplace with a good book.

Seriously, layers are the KEY, guys! I have experimented and layering is what keeps me the warmest. It's great because if you do get hot, you can peel off layers to achieve the perfect temperature. This is especially important for me because I start off so cold in the morning and then get really hot throughout the day as I chase James around and we get to playing! I just take off layers as needed, and I'm always the right temp!

I'm so excited to have been introduced to Cuddl Duds! They make the COZIEST, softest, most comfortable clothes that are perfect for layering! They have a bunch of different colors and prints in all of the Fall staples: leggings, hoodies, wraps, turtlenecks, tops, etc... The animal print leggings that I'm wearing in these pictures are my FAVORITE. They fit so well (TTS), are so soft, and the animal print is really cute but not too in your face, you know?? It's understated but really fun! Seriously, I am so excited about all of the different options and possible combinations with Cuddl Duds! haha

I love that Cuddl Duds can be worn around the house while I'm playing and cuddling with James, but also out and about. Their pieces are so easy to dress up and pair with jeans, over-sized sweaters, and cute boots for running errands or going out for coffee. I'm seriously obsessed. So comfy, cute, and warm. 

The whole Fall collection of Cuddl Duds is available at JC Penney, and they are super affordable, which is ALWAYS a big bonus!! You can shop Cuddl Duds at JC Penney online here.

You can shop all of my favorite looks from Cuddl Duds here!

Anyways, are you as excited for Fall as I am?? Let me know what your secret for staying warm is in the comments below!!

Momiform 101

IMG_8285.JPG

Hi there!

As promised a couple of days ago, here is my post on Momiform 101!

I know that personally, as a mom, I am always looking for outfit inspiration and ideas!  Us mamas need to think, not only about looking cute and put together, but also about comfort and functionality, as we are usually chasing around little ones all day long! I've basically figured out a formula for outfits that work well for my lifestyle, and I thought I'd share some outfit inspiration for all of you other active mamas out there. :)

Screen Shot 2017-09-21 at 10.43.34 AM.png

When getting dressed in the morning, I think about what my day will consist of...usually some or all of the following:

  1. Playing with my son
  2. Working out
  3. Cleaning
  4. Work
  5. Running Errands

So, right there, I know that I need to choose clothing items that I can move in, and that can transition from a workout or chores around the house, to something stylish and polished for running errands or going out into the world. In other words: LEGGINGS. haha

I have quite a collection of cute leggings, and I'm always getting new ones because they really make the Momiform. You can pair patterned leggings with a basic, plain colored top, or choose solid colored leggings and pair them with a brighter top. I also love wearing a cozy sweater with leggings to dress them up a bit.

I really like finding plain leggings that have an unexpected little detailing on them, like these, these, and these.

I love pairing my leggings with comfy but cute t-shirts, sweaters, cute sweatshirts like THIS one, and long-sleeved thermals. Unless I'm wearing plain black leggings, I usually keep it pretty tame up top - not many patterns.

These t-shirts are great to stock up on! I also love this, this, and this.

This sweater is also a great staple. I also love this, this, and this.

Lastly, shoes! I pretty much always wear a good pair of tennis shoes because I need to be able to chase James around, and not worry about walking on grass or dirt. Tennis shoes ensure that I am ready for anything!

Here are a few that I love here, here (on sale for 25% off!!), and here.

For warm layers, I love cute, sporty jackets and vests. This, this, this, and this are all favorites! Ben just got methe pull-over version of this, which I'm wearing in the first picture of this post, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it so much. It's so warm and cozy!! The vest would be great. Here is a full-zip version as well!

There you have it! My lesson in achieving the perfect Momiform! ;) Throw on a cute hat like this one to protect your face from the sun (or cover up that un-washed hair) and you're golden!! I hope you enjoyed this and that it was able to give you some ideas!

Being a mom and dressing comfortably and functionally does NOT mean you have to look frumpy!! You can still look sporty, cute, and put together! It's important for us to feel GOOD and to feel like we LOOK good, as moms...as women in GENERAL! Don't ever settle for feeling less than your best. You deserve to feel BEAUTIFUL and stylish, mama! 

What's your go-to momiform??

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas!

A little #TBT for ya...holy cow! haha This was me last Fourth of July...very pregnant and HUGE! When I look back on pictures of me towards the end of my pregnancy, I am always SHOCKED with how ginormous I was haha. I didn't really realize it at the time, but man!! :p I'm so excited to have James here with us this 4th! I got him this ADORABLE little patriotic shirt to wear! (Get the shirt here)

Anyways...let's get down to it!

Fourth of July is coming up quickly! I love holidays and dressing up for the festivities. The Fourth of July is no exception! I love all of the cute patriotic clothes that start showing up around this time of year.

This year, I'll be wearing this CUTE and understated USA tee. You can get it here! I'll be pairing it with my favorite cutoffs and some red lips!

Here are a few other pieces that I think are so cute and perfect for the 4th!

What are your plans for the Fourth of July??

Floral Dress

Today, I went to a bridal shower, and I wore this floral dress that I absolutely LOVE! And the best part is, it was under $50 ... I mean, hard to beat that, right??

Unfortunately, this dress sold out after I posted it on my Instagram story..DARN! But here are a few other ones that I LOVE:

 

I paired the dress with my favorite espadrilles (get them here) and my all time favorite accessory: baby James! :)

It's so much fun getting to dress up! I don't get all that many opportunities to doll myself up these days, so when I do get a chance I take full advantage! This dress was perfect because it is so feminine and so on point as far as trends go, while still being really comfortable! It was comfortable and stayed put while chasing around and carrying a 10 month (almost 11 month) old baby boy - it passed the ultimate test! haha

What are you all up to this weekend? I am so excited to celebrate Ben's first Father's Day tomorrow!! Well, first Father's Day since James has been born at least - sorry Gunner!!

Have a great weekend, friends!

Workout Wear Lust List

The Bikini Series is coming to an end, and Summer is quickly approaching! I am more motivated than ever to get in shape and tone things up!

One of my favorite ways to motivate myself to get in a workout is by wearing cute workout wear! If I know that I have a cool new outfit to wear for my morning sweat sesh, I am 1000x more likely to hop out of bed and get it done. I love clothes, and workout clothes are no exception!

Now is the perfect time to reward ourselves with some new fitness apparel to give us that extra push to be our healthiest selves, and to look good while we do it!

Here are some workout clothing items that I am MAJORLY lusting after at the moment:
