I think you’ve noticed that 2 of my previous looks (bumpy style, spring pastels) were all about combination of fresh and very delicate pastel colors and today I wanted to do something opposite. I spotted this super bright neon top in H&M and totally fell in love with it. I think I just got a new color crush!:) In reality it much much brighter than on these photos!!! My bay bump grows so fast now and I’m not gonna lie that it’s a little bit challenging to find pretty outfits but it’s actually a fun challenge:)

And another beautiful collaboration. Super adorable mommy-to-be Lindsay from Lipstick & Lollies and I decided to team up and incorporate neon colors into our maternity looks. Check out her blog for more beautiful outfit posts!!!
