The other day Ed (My husband) and I went out for brunch and decided to give the newest local spot a shot. Steel Craft is the newest addition to downtown Bellflower, it has a great variety of new restaurants which is something Bellflower always seemed to lack. Not only does it give food options, asthetically its a refreshing take on outdoor and community eating which I enjoyed.
We had heard great things about the bagal shop that was at Steel Craft as well as the coffee shop so we went straight there. At Solid Coffee Shop we ordered
Iced Matcha Latte with Almond Milk
Solid Cold Brew with Vanilla Sweetener
While at Cassidy’s Corner we ordered
Del Amo on a Everything Bagel
Cassidy’s Club on a Whole Wheat Bagel
Everything was great, the bagels were so filling and our drinks were amazing. I usually drink green tea but I’m going to give Matcha a try since the drink was so good.
While out on our brunch date I wore my favorite T-shirt at the moment. I purchased the T-shirt from Boohoo Maternity for a great price, which makes me love the shirt even more lol. Maternity clothes can be very expensive especially when you take into consideration that your only going to be wearing it for less than a year. However, just like every other T-Shirt you can easily dress it up or down like I did with leggings and a denim jacket. Comfy shoes are still a must for me, these aren’t my current favorites but go back to my previous post to find out which ones are.
Here are a few of my top picks for cute maternity graphic T-shirts if you interested in getting some comfy and cute options.
I’m not sure what hormone to blame, but when my second trimester started my feet just seemed to give up on me. All my shoes stopped fitting and hurt my heels SO bad that all I would wear were my sandals, but even my sandals became my worst enemies eventually. I was in denial for some time about the sad truth, my feet had grown. I’m honestly not sure if my feet grew, got wider or both but I gave in and went shoe shopping, looking for ANYTHING that I could walk in comfortably.
About 2-3 weeks ago, my husband and I went to our local Burlington in search of some shoes for myself (and you know I’m all about finding a deal) that would be cute yet comfy. To my surprise I came across these Naturalizer Yola Sneakers, which I thought were cute and I almost cried when I tried them on… THEY WERE SO COMFY! I felt as if I was literally walking on clouds, not even my Adidas or Nike sneakers could compare. Although I didn’t end up purchasing them that day because I knew I needed to either size up a half size or see if they were available in wide, because they are pretty narrow. Luckily they were in my size on Amazon, I ordered them right away and have been wearing them non stop ever since. These sneakers have honestly been the best purchase I’ve made so far in my pregnancy… right after my pregnancy pillow lol.
Do you have any recommendations for comfortable shoes? I can not do anything flat, meaning I need to have a solid sole with cushion or else I won’t make it through the day. I miss the days of throwing on some heels or booties just because it completed an outfit, but now a days its more about comfort. Honestly, I don’t mind giving up some style for my little one as long as I’m comfortable for the both of us.
