Happy Wednesday Loves! It’s been a beautiful bday week. I kicked it off a bit early on Saturday with my baby shower. I can’t wait to share those photos with you! There was lots of love in that room. We are truly blessed.
On my actual birthday (Monday, May 4th) I took it easy (something that’s challenging for me – hee) and headed to the spa. The highlight was an intense peppermint foot rug with paraffin wax (thanks Yvonne). That’s golden for a pregnant woman’s feet, which can be very swollen. I’m like, “Just call me Wilma!”
Ralph and I had a great time also shooting our prenatal pics with Reese Studios. The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC made for a stunning backdrop! Of course, we brought baby Jack’s “stand in” for the shoot. Our super cool photographer and friend Stephanie called the stuffed zebra “Jack-Jack.” Ha!
I wore a dress from Asos’ maternity line. It was so comfy, but at the same time made me feel like I was dressed for high tea. Ralph’s linen shirt was from Asos, as well. Shout out to hair stylist guru Fab Freddie for my blow out with vintage curls. Please take a look at some of our favorite photos from the day.
If you are in DC, be sure to check out the Portrait Gallery. It tells the history of America through individuals who have shaped its culture.
I’m a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I’ve been “reporting” from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL! I’ve been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
