Jersey wrap dresses are officially one of my best friends at this stage in my pregnancy. They accommodate my growing bump day by day. The lively polka dot pattern on here was perfect for the fun outing I had with my husband yesterday– shopping & exploring popular eateries in West Hollywood.

Olive Green Dress by Pink Blush | Aqua Floral Dress by Pink Blush

Today’s post is an exciting one for me because it is the first collaboration I have accepted! I am very selective about who I work with and I only want to showcase brands and items that best represent me & my personal style. So I was thrilled when Pink Blush Maternity approached me because I immediately fell in love with their wrap dresses! They are so unique with their gorgeous prints & various shades and completely wearable on every occasion. I was sent dresses of my choosing, and let me tell you they are insanely comfortable and I feel like wearing them all day everyday. I’ve worn these several times already just to get the proper feel before I make a post and I just love them even more and more each time, not to mention the constant compliments I’ve been getting on both the olive green & aqua floral print! Although Pink Blush is known for their maternity collection, they also have an amazing non-maternity brand here.

Now here is the fun part, I am also excited to be hosting a giveaway of a $25 gift card applicable to both their maternity & non-maternity collection for my fabulous followers!

How To Enter:
1) Must follow me on Instagram @ShvetaSontakey & on my brand new FB page: facebook.com/ShvetaSontakey
2) Tag one friend who you think would love their dresses either on Instagram or Facebook in the comment section and you’re set!
I will announce & tag the winner on November 25th & Pink Blush will be sure to send your gift card :)

Happy Monday, loves! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I recently had the pleasure of attending an elegant dinner and a charity function here in Beverly Hills, and I chose to wear this black dress with gold embroidery. A touch of gold accents is a must in my wardrobe, and I feel it’s especially perfect for the holiday season! What’s a must in your wardrobe?

How sweet is this organza silk-blend dress? I bought it pre-pregnancy and discovered it had to be altered as it was way too big on my petite frame. I was too lazy to go get it fitted, but it all worked out because a month later I found out I was pregnant! I figured I’d wait until I grew into the dress before I frolic about in it. I cannot get over how beautiful the embroidery is with its vibrant yet soft colors. It makes me feel so girly and cutesy; this dress would be perfect for a garden or tea party. I wish I could create a matching one for my daughter!

This dress by Ted Baker has been so comfortable and one of my favorites to wear in my pregnancy. The ease of the zip make it fit just right while the cotton material makes it breathable in the warm weather we’ve been experiencing in Los Angeles.

Dress by Free People (old, similar option here)

Lace dresses have a way of making me feel so feminine and as if I am in a fairy tale. I love immersing myself in novels that portray fantasy and romance, and this place just minutes away from our home looks right out of a classic story book. The timing was perfect as my husband and I were strolling hand in hand and I was wearing one of my favorite lace maxis from Free People (that still comfortably fit at this point in my pregnancy) so we decided to capture a few photographs here. I cannot wait to read fairytales to my baby girl once she’s born!

Midis have been a staple in my wardrobe, and I am pleased to be able to wear them in my third trimester. There is something about these that make me feel so sophisticated and put together. Best of all, they are so easy and comfortable to stroll around in.

Big Announcement

Dress by Asos | Sandals by Tory Burch

I am excited to announce that my husband and I will soon become a family of three! We are so blessed with this wonderful surprise and cannot wait to experience the joy our daughter will bring once she arrives. After battling the first trimester morning sickness (more like all day sickness), I have been occupying myself by preparing for our baby girl. It still doesn’t feel real at times, until she kicks me to remind me she is here. I was patiently waiting for a bump to appear, and then after 6 months I suddenly started growing day by day! Now that I am 7 months along, I am looking forward to styling the bump.

Here is our official announcement video with the concept my husband wanted to make for our family and friends. A huge thanks to my amazing sister in law, Rati Dharkar, who lovingly created this for us.

Mint Festival

It’s festival season and I am channeling my inner bohemian princess in Malibu. I am wearing a mint cotton dress with my hair jeweled by a gold & turquoise headchain from India. The delicate crochet lace provides a romantic touch as I saunter about the fields into the sunset.

Silk Organza

Craving to accessorize with black again, I chose to wear my classic Chanel bag while strolling through the neighborhood in my coordinating gold sole pumps. Spring has to be my favorite season, as it’s the time to wear nothing but skirts and dresses! I decided to wear a fun, floral midi skirt from Asos. With a structure synonymous with the full bloom of spring, the silk organza skirt provided the utmost feminine flair on such a beautiful day.

Bold Skirt

My husband and I were on our way to Rodeo Drive and stumbled upon this home fit for Hansel & Gretel! It turns out it’s a popular tourist spot known as The Witch’s House in Beverly Hills. I guess the locals are always the last to know about the quirky things in their neighborhood.

For this look, I wore a simple outfit with a bold skirt. The maxi skirt’s vibrant and unique pattern balanced well with a black crop top and accessories.

Malibu Safari

MalibuWine3

We went on a private wine safari in Malibu where we interacted with alpacas, llamas, zebras & horses. They were such a blast to feed, and they constantly made us giggle. I decided to wear a floral maxi dress to blend in with the natural beauty of the hills and canyons in Malibu. I cannot wait to return to this wonderful experience.
