Arizona Adventures | Spring Maternity Style | Pink Blush Giveaway

 Like I said before on Instagram, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by as I am already 22 weeks pregnant! Right now we are scoping out names like crazy because Matt and I can hardly find one name we both like.

Our (but really it’s MY) name qualification checklist is long but we’ll keep looking at baby name lists until we find a couple names we can agree one. I love names that start with vowels, that are long-ish, and unique but traditional names, plus if it’s biblical that’s a bigger bonus.. The kicker is finding a biblical name that is unique but not bizarre (like Nebuchadnezzar or Tirzah)… but I like also Grace as a possibility for a girl but Matt does not like “word names”. See what I mean? We have a lot more baby research ahead of us!

 But for now let’s head into this next G I V E A W A Y! I’ve partnered with Pink Blush to giveaway a $50 gift certificate! I’ve been wearing all my Pink Blushes dresses this week (here, here, and here) to update my Spring maternity style, and I know you’ll find something you love from there!

It’s that time again… when your child out grows their shoes and you need to take them shoe shopping. Shopping with Annaliese can be a toss up between a sigh of relief or a complete nightmare. She’s already formed her own personal fashion preferences and it can be a struggle for me to let go controlling what she wears.

Thankfully DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse Kids now has 2 locations in Edmonton and I can let her pick her choice from all my favourite shoe brands: Nike, Striderite, Hunter, Birkenstock, Toms, Ugg, Steve Madden. She’s happy with her choice, and I’m happy with her choice and with the affordable price.

Time for a giveaway! The best part is I’ve partnered with Designer Shoe Warehouse to give 1 winner a $100 DSW gift card to take care of your shoe needs! To enter complete the 3 steps:

Subscribe to Honey & Betts by email, you can in the sidebar or if you’re on a mobile device it will be at the bottom the page.

The sun feels so good after a rough first trimeter during the winter. Though it’s technically Spring time here, it feels like Summer to me!

At some point this week Matt and I want to go thrift shopping, and check out a new coffee place every morning with the girls. Other than that we don’t plan on too much shopping, just playing with the girls in the pool and soaking up the Vitamin D.

Lately I have been fixated on denim skirts and dresses – then I got my hands on this one and may have worn it on repeat many times this week. I love how versatile denim is – it can be styled for a feminine outfit to a minimalist, modern outfit. I can’t wait for the weather to turn a bit cooler, the leaves change colours, and to be able to wear my extensive scarf collection! 

What are you looking forward to most with fall coming up so soon?

What To Wear To A Summer Wedding

 I am 5 feet 9 inches tall and it’s usually one of the first things people notice when they meet me for the first time in person. As a blogger there are a few camera tricks to create that elongated look that everyone wants but in real life I don’t need any tricks to add a few inches to my height. 

When dressing for a summer wedding – no matter if it is formal, semi-formal, or casual – you can never be overdressed for an occasion as special as a wedding. But with that in mind you most certainly do not want to outshine the bride, that is a big no-no.

How do I keep the balance? 

  1. I opt for a long dress with a cinched waist – it creates a long, clean silhouette that is quite flattering. And usually when I am browsing the “short” dresses in a store they fit perfectly on short women (you do the math and it probably wouldn’t look as classy on myself).

2. Find some killer shoes! They don’t have to be heels, though a kitten heel is very manageable for those who dread wearing them, but adding some unique footwear will take your look to the next level.

3. Accessories can make your outfit look great, tacky, or like it is missing something.

I feel like I could write an entire post on unspoken rules of accessories, but here it is in a nutshell: if you’re wearing statement jewelry, less is more; match the right necklace to the right neckline; think of your body as having zones (neck, ears, arms), if you have ruffles or sequins along your dress’ neckline then do not accessorize with a necklace focus your accessories on your ears and arms.
