We're bringing questions baaaaaack.... (if only we were bringing Justin Timberlake with us). That's right, Hey Landyn! is coming back and I will be answering the questions that you guys send, every other Monday. You're always welcome to DM me or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Hey Landyn. Let's get right to it!
WHERE DID YOU GET THAT NECKLACE YOU'VE BEEN LAYERING?
Isn't it the best! I love how simple it is and is the best for layering with all different types of necklaces. It is a awesome knock off of the Cartier Crescent necklace. It is the Payton Necklace from LB Mint. If you use the code LWL25 at checkout you can get 25% off your entire order.
HOW DO YOU DRESS STYLISHLY WHILE PREGNANT?
So, clearly I have been out of the pregnancy game for a while, but I will say that there are SO MANY more options for cute maternity clothes then there where when I was last pregnant 10+ years ago. Here are a couple of quick pieces of advice for you.
1. Invest in one or two good pairs of jeans and wear the heck out of them. This pair by Paige Denim gets tons of awesome reviews and I loved my PAIGE pair when I was pregnant.
2. By as many non-maternity clothes as you can. Stick to long tunic tops, maxi dresses, pants with elastic waists. That way you aren't investing a ton of money in stuff that you will only wear for a few months. Those types of pieces will be wearable in post-partum and beyond.
3. Keep it simple and classic. Obviously this is my advice for just about everything in my life, but by simple, neutral, classic pieces that you will not be able to tire of and can wear over and over. Then just add a pop of color and pattern through your accessories.
NON-MATERNITY WEAR THAT WORKS
DRESS THE BUMP
WHAT'S THE LIP GLOSS YOU'VE BEEN WEARING LATELY?
I have been wearing the Urban Decay Ultra Nourishing Lip Gloss in Nooner and I love it. I have always been a Bobbi Brown lipgloss girl, but I got this and I am a huge fan. HUGE. It's like the perfect nude.
WHAT ARE YOUR GO TO SNACKS?
As we all know, I have been on a countdown to my 40th birthday and have really been trying to clean up my eating in order to feel and look my best on my big day. I have to say that it has really been working and I have been noticing a huge difference in my energy levels and how I feel. On this new plan, eating several times throughout the day is very important so I have gotten really strategic about my snacks. A few of my favorites are: Epic Protein Bars in Sriracha Chicken, 2 rice cakes with a packet of Barney Butter split between the two packets, Nogii Protein Cocoa Chocolate Protein Powder, and a simple handful of almonds. As a side note, if you are counting your macros the Barney Butter has 7.5g of fat per packet, which is the perfect amount of fat I need.
