Red Striped Highlight.

The third trimester of pregnancy is no party. It seems like nature's cruel joke when pregnancy becomes so uncomfortable that insomnia sets in and you start to experience the full effects of sleep deprivation before your baby even arrives. I keep telling myself it is preparation for my bundle of joy, but it's not easy. I have found that it helps to focus on baby's pending arrival to get my mind off of the fact that my body feels like a prison sometimes. Preparing our home and making sure we have what we need is a good distraction. There is lots to do!

One of the highlights of my week was a wonderful baby gift from my mother-in-law. Apparently she found it at a store in New York and I am now quite enamored by the brand. The Swedish company Polarn O. Pyret which translates into "Buddy and the Little Guy" is one of my new favorites. The Stockholm-based company launched in the U.S. three years ago but they have been around for quite a while also known as the "Stripy Company" and PO.P.

The detail and quality of their clothing is raved about and their Eco Collection is 100% organic cotton with independently certified green manufacturing. In addition to the line being environmentally friendly, I love organic cotton because it gets softer with each wash. The brand also gets great reviews for durability. The clothing does not fade between washes and can last through multiple children.

This long sleeve top is perfect. It is a classic look on its own and will act as a nice layering piece when the weather gets cooler. Paired with the matching legging, you have a comfortable sleep-and-go outfit.

And of course, you know from reading my blog that no outfit is complete without accessories! All babies need something to keep their head and little feet warm. How adorable are these?

This onesie also makes a great baby shower gift. The wrap front prevents new parents from having to pull the item over baby's head and makes for easier diaper changes... always a plus.

The classic PO.P stripe is also available in navy blue. I think the design works for a baby boy or girl. (You could always put a headband on your little girl to fem it up if you like.) The red is cute for year round use, but is also a great holiday look for baby.

If you live in the area, I'm excited to report that one of their stores will be opening in the Chestnut Hill Mall sometime later this month. Check it out!

Treat every day like you are on the runway.
