Top Five

Now seven months into this pregnancy, I’ve think I’ve pretty much nailed down my maternity style essentials…things that I could not live without in this pregnant state, and wear all the time.

I’m over at Sam’s blog, Young People in Love, today talking about my top five Maternity Essentials. Hop on over and check them out!

    I was just thinking about doing this exact kind of post while we were on vacation! Great minds. . .

  2. I can't believe you are 7 months! You are so tiny!!!

  3. {amy k.} says:

    great advice. i too love those target shirts and skinny belts to help give shape! where have you found the most comfy leggings?

  4. I love your style and your art!! Your amazing! God has blessed you with an amazing gift!

  5. I really have begun purchasing my own maternity garments somewhere in the range of 4 and 5 months…when I could never again pull off simply circling an elastic band through my buttonhole and every one of my shirts were getting excessively short. It could shift from lady to lady when this occurs.

Over the last year since I’ve been taking regular outfit photos and blogging about them, I’ve noticed a few pieces that I keep coming back to — my top five most remixable items. Want to know what they are? Head on over to Preethi’s blog and find out! 
And not to ruin the surprise, but you just have to know that my mustard cardigan is in there… 
Happy Wednesday!

    I adore this top – fantastic!

    okay, a) I wear my gold glittery flats almost daily (they're almost worn through and not so glittery anymore, and I got 'em at Christmas!) and b) a blazer is the best thing in the world. I work at a really casual office (i.e. I wear jeans basically every day), but I can get away with almost any top if I wear my blazer with it. Even t-shirts! I thrifted two at the same time, and they're my favorite way to dress up a "plainer" outfit, aside from giant statement jewelry.

    Wow, that was supah long, sorry. haha

  4. Taylor Laree says:

    My go to piece is always either my black cardigan or my jean jacket. They are so easy to wear & I live in the Pacific Northwest…so you kinda always need a little jacket of some kind!

  5. I am in love with that top you're wearing. You made it? I think I need to pay you to make me one too!

  6. Jenni says:

  12. Hi Merrick, I love the looks you put together! I am simply fascinated by the top and was wondering if you have a pattern you used or if you made one yourself? It would be fantastic if you shared?
