On Mommy: Splendid top, Target denim maternity shorts that I made into cutoffs, Cynthia Vincent sandals (a warehouse sale find!), Goyard bag, J.Crew and Hermes bracelets
On A: Gingersnaps top, Gymboree shorts, Crocs
I live in cut off shorts all summer long. I was excited to find these denim maternity shorts at Target. To make cut off shorts, just cut to length and throw in the washing machine. Trim the excess fray and you’re good to go. For a more distressed look, rub sandpaper on the denim. I’ve read you should stitch above the fray to make sure it doesn’t keep fraying and get shorter and shorter but I haven’t had issues with my other cut off shorts yet!

One of my go-to summer meals is a grilled chicken and veggie kabob served with couscous. I found this recipe here and it is about as easy as they come. All the ingredients for the marinade are things that I always have on hand so all I have to do is pick up some chicken, veggies and couscous mix (yes, I use a boxed mix!) and I’m set for dinner! I took this picture with 2 kabobs to make it look visually appealing but I’ll admit, I had 7 of these bad boys. I’ve been eating equal or more than hubbie as of late. Take an already hearty appetite and add pregnancy to the mix and I’m unstoppable.
