Sneak Peek

October 30, 2014

It’s the blogger’s version of a wedding day.

Months of preparation.  Countless time agonizing over every minute detail.  Toiling away until the wee hours of the night at seemingly minor items.

It’s the website relaunch, baby.  And mine’s happening November 5th.  EEEK!

I’m still in denial that November is two days away.  But that’s another story.

There is so much I want to tell you about the new website.  But…I can’t.  It’s better if I show you.

For now, I want to give a massive heartfelt thanks to the people who made this possible.

Victoria – who took my scrambled, early pregnancy thoughts and created a design that embodies everything Hitha On The Go is and wants to be.  Also, for being one of the greatest friends a girl can ask for.

Lisa - a genius developer who never said “No, I can’t do that,” and made my website dreams a reality.  And someone who can empathize with my fervent adoration for all things Harry Potter and Pitch Perfect.

Laura and Tim - talented photographers who conveyed the mission of this website (Pack Faster. Live Better. Look Great) into dreamy, impactful images.  Also, for making a 4 1/2 month pregnant lady look her best.  And to Laura, for the many memories since 2005.  RIP Tommy’s and AGD hot chocolate machine.

You – I’m about to get massively cheesy (we’re talking Philly cheesesteak ‘Wiz level), but there would be no Hitha On The Go without you.  Your readership, comments, follows on social media, and engagement is the reason I keep writing this website.  Why I keep striving to bring you the best content in new forms.  I am so blessed to have the best readers on the Internet.  That’s you.  You are the best.

November 2014, I have a good feeling about you. *knocks on wood*

This Week

October 29, 2014

Things I never thought I would be doing – running through the French Quarter in New Orleans, belly and all, in attempt to beat my husband in a scavenger hunt.

My team came in second place.  BY A HALF POINT.

Not that I’m still bitter.  Maybe just a little bit.

As much as I’d love to spend this week recovering from my overindulgent eating and late nights in New Orleans, it’s filled with the usual.  Meetings, my monthly breakfast with Megan and Katherine, and a cooking class.  I’m counting down the days until Friday, when we’re taking off for upstate with Victoria, Julia, and Viviana (plus husbands) for a relaxing weekend.

Is it Friday yet?  Anyone else feel the same way?  Have a great rest of your week and weekend!

Style The Bump – Business

October 28, 2014

- M.M. LaFleur dressNastyGal blazerTory Burch bag
- Sole Society heels (similar) – Julie Vos ring & bracelet – Alanna Bess necklace -

Until recently, dressing the bump was akin to disguising an “I-ate-too-much pooch.”  Bonus – I have a full slate of outfits to pull from when this kid is out.  Or when I’ve been eating too many tacos and not enough salad.

Which is more often than not, if I’m being honest.  Ooops.

A great dress has been my business uniform for the past 4 years or so.  M.M. LaFleur dresses have been the norm ever since the company launched. Each item of clothing is incredibly stylish, comfortable, and always appropriate.

Basically, the company created the business style Holy Grail.  And the Clara is apparently perfect for a growing bump – food, baby, or otherwise.

Pair it with your favorite blazer (I love this cape blazer so much that I purchased it in white AND pink) and accessories, and you can tackle more important issues.  Like how to juggle world domination with impending motherhood.  And what one ACTUALLY needs for a tiny newborn.  #preggoproblems

If business formal is your dress code, swap this cape blazer for a more structured and formal one.  Avoid blazers with padding in the shoulder, as this dress does have small shoulder pads.

A question for you – how do you feel about outfit posts?  Want to see more, or are you not a fan?  In preparation of launching the new website, I’m revamping the editorial calendar and would love to get your input.  Current plan is to have a monthly outfit, but I’m open to suggestions.  COMMENT below and let me know!
