Ahhh…springtime! This year, the season has never been sweeter. Spring began with the last few weeks of my pregnancy.

Getting ready for bebe was thrilling. The building anticipation of what our baby would be like and how it would feel to be parents grew every day as we neared the due date. We were advised to enjoy our time together as a twosome before our little human arrived. So, that’s exactly what John and I did, starting with long strolls around town.


The sunny Saturday before baby George arrived, one of our walks led us to Jephson Garden here in Leamington Spa. It could not have been a more beautiful day! It also provided the perfect answer to the Hush Puppies SS16 Campaign, “Life is…” On that day, life was an afternoon in the sunshine with my love


My handsome Englishman, a healthy baby on board, sunshine, and bare legs with sandals – it couldn’t have been more perfect. Looking at that bump now feels so strange; how could the me in that photo be so blissfully unaware of the incredible, transformative event that was only seven days away?


But let’s get back to fashion – the two pairs of Hush Puppies sandals that I got were beyond comfortable, which is exactly what you need when you’re almost 40 weeks pregnant and you decide to go on long walks to coax the baby out!


I so enjoyed that day with John. I felt beautiful, loved, and excited for this new chapter that was about to unfold.


I can’t get enough of these Hush Puppies sandals! They’re the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe. I can’t wait to add some wedges and neutral platforms to round out the collection!
