I love everything about Valentine’s Day–red roses, chocolate, and just red everything! Of course there’s the gifting aspect of it too which I’m always so curious to see what Brandon has up his sleeve. Funny enough, the most common questions of the very few that I receive from men are ones asking about gift ideas for the women in their life. Without knowing the person and what their taste is, this is a tough. But my go-to answer to help out guys is: something sparkly.

Jewelry that is delicate and versatile is the perfect gift and I found some pieces from Swarovski that any girl would swoon over. The Crystalline Oval Watch is a great statement piece that is both functional and fashionable that could easily dress up any outfit. I also loved the simplicity of the Distinct Narrow Bangle and the Rare Ring that adds just the right amount of shine and is so perfect for stacking. I’ve always been a huge fan of thin band rings to stack with my engagement ring. Head on over here to get some more inspiration and gift ideas!

Jeans: Frame Denim / Shirt: Paige Denim (similar) / Shoes: Christian Louboutin (sold out) / Sunglasses: Ray Ban 

Shot this look last year at this time! Having the time on my hands to go through my past work has really been a perk for me in these last few weeks. I missed out on so many outfits, I can’t remember why I didn’t post them – they just got lost in the mix!

We shot this in the freezing cold right after I got back from Anguilla. I just purchased these shoes and all I wanted to do was style them with a full on denim look! These jeans are Frame Denim, I actually just had to get up and go check because I really can’t remember any of my favorites from before pregnancy. I can’t wait to wear them all again, these photos will be my inspiration! I still wear this Paige Distressed button down over t-shirts/long sleeves, it’s the perfect denim button down.

I just got back from the DR – I almost fainted this morning! It was seriously the scariest experience ever not having control over my body. I wasn’t even doing anything crazy which was weird, was just folding some clothing and putting them away. I immediately sat down and had a glass of orange juice. My DR wanted to check me just in case but all is OK. Baby sounds absolutely perfect and is just sitting super super low which could affect a vein or a nerve that cuts off circulation. Just something I’ll have to put up with these last few weeks!

As you know, Fashion Week starts this week, I won’t be able to attend shows as I’m pretty much waddling all over the place and beyond exhausted but I’ll be filming tons of hair tutorials with Tresemme! Be sure to follow me along on SnapChat (ArielleCharnas) and Instagram (@somethingnavy)!

Hope all of you in NY are staying warm this week! x

Decor: Restoration Hardware Baby & Child

The nursery is finally done and I could not be happier and excited since the only thing that’s missing to complete it all is my baby girl! Walking into the nursery and just picturing her sleeping in her crib is a surreal feeling. I’ve had a few of those moments already, but this one takes the cake for sure where it hits me that it’s all really happening.

I’ve been sharing my process of working with RH Baby & Child Design Atelier services and all of this could not have been possible without their dedicated team bringing my dream nursery to life! Picking out colors and fabrics that I gravitated towards was the easy part but it was tough to envision the full picture, ensuring that it would all come together beautifully. The team took my ideas and executed them effortlessly bringing together a modern nursery with classic pieces that I am so in love with. The plush animals and the books add the perfect playful finishing touches that you can’t resist smiling at because they are so incredibly cute. I can’t wait to give you the full tour of the nursery which we’ll have to wait for the missing piece to just get here! Just a few more weeks… !

Missed Post.

Happy Monday everyone!

I completely forgot about this post that I shot during early pregnancy. It’s so funny how at the time I wasn’t in love with the outfit but after looking back a few months later, I really appreciate being able to wear black fitted jeans and heels!

I have these jeans by AYR in black and also in a light distressed blue denim. I loved the little flare detail at the bottom but also how beautifully the pant fit everywhere else. These Christian Louboutin pumps are a personal favorite of mine because the material allows your feet to breath and expand. I actually probably could wear these during pregnancy!

Hope you all had a great weekend. x

Leggings: American Apparel / Coat: Dawn Levy / Sweater: ASOS / Bag: Valentino / Sneakers: Veja/Bandier / Sunglasses: Cutler and Gross

Since it’s been all oversized sweaters and leggings clothes-wise on my last leg of pregnancy, I’ve really been loving accessories with a little special touch to them. A must-have staple for me are a classic pair of white sneakers and I’m obsessed with these Veja sneakers from Bandier since they have a special twist with the digital-print marble. How cool are they? I also love a great pair of aviators and these mirrored pair are perfect to complete the look. x
