March 27, 2017
Black and pink outfit of the day

Black and pink is such an unusual combination for me. With a few exceptions, you would rarely see me wearing pink.

Brown Ring Chain Accent Faux Suede Flap Bag

When I got pregnant, I was curious to see how long I can wear my regular clothes before having to buy any maternity ones. Honestly, the idea of purchasing maternity clothes seemed like a waste of money. So I wanted to find a way that I can be wearing non-maternity clothes during my pregnancy.
