Happy New Year! I didn’t manage to post this before 2018, but better late than never, right? 2017 was definitely the fastest year I’ve ever experienced. It’s hard to believe we were still living in Italy less than a year ago and now we are in Jordan as a family of three. Even though she didn’t arrive until December, the highlight of my year was definitely the debut of our sweet Lila Blake. Speaking of which, my most popular posts were baby-related, which surprised me since my blog centers around fashion. That said, I’d love to know—would you guys enjoy seeing more motherhood-related content for the new year? As always, thank you all so much for your continued support and I wish everyone the very best for 2018!
This post is one of the most special I’ve ever written; we loved every minute of our two years in Italy and it contains some of my favorite images.

Duster jackets can be tricky to style and this image was my most-pinned on Pinterest for 2017!

I wore this floral kimono on a trip to Israel and it ended up being one of my most popular looks of the year.
Comfy-casual looks always win and I wore this amazing pair of maternity leggings nonstop throughout my pregnancy.

Here I thought I was at the end of my pregnancy, but little did we know it’d still be over a month until Little Miss finally decided to arrive.
December – Lila Blake’s Birth Story: December 7, 2017
