Jumping back into the GAP.

gapgreen.jpgSo my mom and I went browsing around a bit yesterday and found ourselves at the Casa Paloma area where they have some cute shops and one super huge women’s clothing only GAP store. I have been down on GAP for awhile now, it just seemed like the clothes were so blah and boring for the past few years. Did you feel the same? Anyway, I was surprised when I found lots of cute casual tops which unfortunately I cannot buy since I will only get bigger for the next 7 months. Luckily, I checked online and they have some affordable, stylish maternity clothes too! Anyway, here are my faves from the new Spring line from GAP in my favorite color of kelly green: The ruffle polo, the half ribbed empire henley, and the 3/4 sleeve trapeze top. I’m looking forward to sunny, happy styles again and these could even work now with a jacket!

So so happy.

giveaway.jpgIt’s Monday and I promised you big news right? Well, here it is. I’m going to be a mommy for the first time. Yep, I’m pregnant! I am overjoyed. Adrian and I have been trying for about 2 years and cannot wait to be parents. Even though I am scared out of my mind about everything going okay, I am looking forward to all the new experiences and challenges in the coming months. So far, I have all the typical pregnant lady symptoms and I adore my husband even more for putting up with me! I am so excited to share this news with all of you and keep you updated as I progress in my pregnancy. Swish-Style will not change at all, there may be a couple baby related posts but don’t worry, I won’t change this into a baby blog or anything. In fact, to celebrate my good news, I’m having a little giveaway contest for my readers! Leave a comment below and guess my due date (hint- it’s in the later summer months). Whoever posts with the closest guess first wins a package from me including Benefit’s Maybe Baby fragrance (a warm, flirty floral that I love) and the Thank You combo from Philosophy (two bath/shower/shampoo gels in Amazing Grace and Pure Grace- my fave body washes.) I’ll leave the contest open until January 9th. After that, I’ll email the winner and send the gift on its way! Thank you for all of your support, you’re the best!

Stay tuned!

There will be a huge announcement on Swish-Style this coming Monday. I’ll just leave you all in suspense for the weekend, but I promise it will be worth the wait!

Eco friendly bag.

It’s only $44 and constructed of organic, raw cotton canvas and recycled rope. It would be totally cute for the spring and perfect for running errands. And at 13 inches by 16 inches, it would hold all my stuff too! One of these days, I should do one of those “What’s in my Purse” posts and scare you all with the contents of my handbags!
