The bump was out in full force in Deep Ellum last weekend and I had a serious case of deja vu. Scott and I have spent many days and nights roaming around Deep Ellum - from getting matching tattoos on our 2nd anniversary and seeing who could eat more at our favorite BBQ spot, to visiting word-of-mouth-only hidden bars and taking endless amounts of blog photos every weekend. It's seriously one of my favorite parts of Dallas and it just continues to grow. Not to mention there are so many new backdrops that I wish had been there two years ago! That's blogger gold, I tell you.
Dallas is also home to one of my favorite boutiques over in Preston Center, Riff Raff, which just so happens to be where my cardigan is from above. If you live in Dallas and haven't been to their store - go! It's adorable and I used to live less than a mile away from it.
Cardigans and kimonos have always been my thing, but I tend to reach for them a lot more when I'm pregnant. There's nothing I love more than pairing a snug fitting top (to accentuate the bump) with a fun cardigan. Aside from covering up trouble areas, cardigans and kimonos easily transform outfits from drab to fab. I'm sorry, I couldn't resist saying that. But really, think about how much a colorful kimono would enhance a white top and jeans. Anyway, when I saw this Show Me Your Mumu cactus cardigan online, I knew I had to have it and apparently so did a lot of other people because the sweater sold out in less than an hour!
Because I'm frequently purchasing things from Riff Raff, I know that they often sell out of things quickly, but rest assured that they are always restocking whatever they can. So as a word to the wise: if you ever see anything you like that's not on the website anymore, shoot them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know you're interested - or sign up for notifications under that specific product (if it's still online) and you'll get an email when your size comes back in stock! Also, check back frequently to see when they've updated their inventory - they do almost every day!
