Shift the Tide


Well hello there colder weather!  After weeks of 80 degree temperatures fall finally decided to show up.  It's actually my favorite season so I was more than excited to break out my tights, boots, and this new dress.  Erica came to my house a few weeks ago in a very similar dress and I decided I needed one of my own.  Unfortunately, no matter how much I sized up, Chinese companies tend to base their size charts on those of children.  It was much too short on me (I wish I had sprung for the XL) but it was nothing a basic black tulle skirt couldn't fix!




Dress- Ebay
Jacket- Forever 21 (exact)
Skirt- Target (exact)
Tights- H&M
Boots- Modcloth (similar)
Beret- gift

This week has been particularly rough for me.  While I thought I was fine, I'm actually having contractions every TWO minutes.  At 34 weeks my baby is not developed enough to make her debut!  My doctor prescribed me medication to stop the contractions but these particular meds don't stop them and they make me terribly sick.  I haven't been drunk in quite some time but these pills take me back to the days when I didn't know my alcohol limits.  Needless to say, attempting to go to work has been a struggle.  It's extremely unsafe to operate while under any kind of influence so I've been going home early almost every day.  I have another doctor's appointment today so we will see what my doctor decides to do.  This may just be my last day of work.  I thought I'd be excited but I'd much rather work another two weeks and have a healthy baby.  I'll keep you updated on the results!




  1. Oh no : ( I hope your Dr. is able to remedy the issue and you are feeling better soon.

    I love the beret with the leather jacket.


  2. Hi Ashley, you look more radiant as the weeks go by, pregnancy style suits you well. Love the girly pink top and the sleek jacket. I hope you feel well soon.

  3. i hope that things look up and you feel better!

  4. That little girl needs to stay where she's at!! Hope your doctor comes up with a healthy strategy for the both of you!

  5. Oh hon, I'm so sorry! I hope that baby girl stays put for a while longer! She shouldn't beat my son to the finish line! Hugs and good thoughts your way!

  6. I hope your new few weeks go smoothly! You are handling everything like such a champ!

    Also, I am 100% in agreement with you on the short imported dresses. When I was backpacking around Asia, I bought a bunch of dresses from street markets (there were no change rooms) and later found out that they were barely tunic length on my longer torso. Sigh... they're always so cute too!


  7. Good luck on your contraction woes :( I hope she stays in the oven a bit longer. Bake more little muffin!

    xo Ashley

  8. This is such an awesome look!!! I love how the cute pink looks with that badass jacket. Oh yeah Chinese companies are awful for teeny tiny products
    I hope everything is okay and you start to feel better, that is super rough!! You poor lady :(

  9. Oh, your and Baby B are in our thoughts. Hope they get meds that work!

    PS You rock that leather jacket.

  10. Best wishes for a complication free delivery and birth of your beautiful baby! I love the pink colour and ultra-feminine details of your dress! It's gorgeous and you styled it beautifully with your tulle skirt from Target.

  11. You look beautiful and I love every bit of this outfit. Even you in pants? Weird, but perfect! I hope everything is going well with little baby B -- please forreal keep us updated. I am totally worried about you, but on the bright side, if you are put on bed rest or something at least that means extra time with your adorable pups, right?!

    1. Okay, you aren't wearing pants. I looked at this on my phone and they looked like pants. Whatever. I'm an idiot. Still good, now I'd especially wear this,

  12. oh my goodness I hope baby stays in there to grow a bit more! Pregnancies have ups and downs...but if doctor says bed rest....than make sure you do!

  13. The positive thing here is that you look adorable with your growing belly.

    I'm really sorry to hear you're having such trouble at this point in the pregnancy. Hopefully your doctor finds you a better solution that keeps you both healthy. It's not the end of the world if you have to stop working early!

    xoxo Jackie

  14. You found a pink one?! Ahhhhh!!
    It's so cute on you! I need to shop on eBay more often.

    Hope you&the baby are doing well! <3

  15. You poor thing! At least your pretty pink frills complement your belly :) You look lovely.

  16. I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope all can be sorted out soon. On a positive note, you look gorgeous in that lovely pink top.

  17. You're in the home stretch -- you can do it! I hope everything pans out.

    That pink top is adorable. :D
