Rarely see a mom-to-be look so light and fresh. I love how Blake Lively contrasted light and heavy (her flowy floral skirt and suede boots), warm and cool (the grey and mint based outfit and her warm rich brown boots). A pair of trendy shades and a swipe of red lipstick are best accessories during my pregnancy too. Best of all? All the pieces can be worn post-pregnancy!

In Chinese:  很少见准妈妈们像布莱克·莱弗利(Blake Lively)这么轻盈。我很喜欢她在这套造型薄厚、冷暖的混搭,比如她飘逸的花裙和厚麂皮长靴的对比,以及蓝灰等冷色调和温暖大地色的碰撞。在尽量少用化妆品的孕期,一个时髦的太阳镜和一抹红唇就是最好的配饰了。最赞的是,这个造型的每一单品产后也都可以穿。

As a mom-to-be, I definitely appreciate my mom more than before. As I said in my “mother’s day gift idea” entry, moms love us much more than we can imagine! The unconditional love started when we first appeared in her belly. She already loved us deeply long before she knew our gender and how we would look like. So treasure her more, hug her more!

To all the moms and moms-to-be: Happy Mother’s Day!

To all the lovely followers who sent me warm emails since I announced my pregnancy, I want to give you a big hug! Thank you for being on this journey with me! Thank you!
