Winter Tights with Assets by Spanx

Assets by Spanx | To B Candid | Brittany Gori

Life is all about convenience for me these days. While I’ve always been a dress lover, I truly appreciate having fewer items to pick out when putting together a dress ensemble. The less I have to think these days, the better! Recently, Spanx created a new line of Assets by Spanx Reversible Tights sold at Target, and these will be my go-to all winter long. First and foremost, the control top is incredible; and second, the leggings are reversible! As someone who would purchase the original Spanx tights, I am so excited about the option to purchase these affordable miracle workers at one of my favorite retailers. The pair I’m wearing can be either black or brown – the perfect neutral for nearly any winter outfit. How often do we joke that we walk into Target needing one thing, and walk out with an entire cart?! I truly appreciate that this 2-in-1 item helps cut down the amount of things I need, and given I am buying double of everything for my littles, this is a huge win for me!

Faux Leather Leggings with Assets by Spanx

Where has time gone? To recap, I had a very healthy pregnancy, and I also remained active to stay as fit as possible – I felt that prepping for labor was similar to prepping for battle. Overall, I was able to “bounce back” fairly quickly (thank you breastfeeding!), but that doesn’t mean my stretched mid-section from twins didn’t leave me feeling a little self-conscious. I’m so thankful for Justin who reminds me how great I look, and for however long your babies were in your belly is typically the amount of time it takes for your body to return to it’s “normal” state. Since I have another five months to go (*le sigh*), I’m super fortunate to Spanx who have helped get me through the holiday season.

Hello, Again!

Nordstrom red one-shoulder top | Brittany Gori | To B Candid

After a very serious hiatus from the blog, I thought it was only appropriate to reintroduce myself since my last post. Over the course of the last four-ish months my husband, Justin, and I have become more settled into the home we purchased this past summer, my blog turned TWO in September, and more importantly, I gave birth to incredible twin girls on August 3rd (there will be another post to properly introduce them). Ever since the twins turned one week old I told myself I would write their birth story and be diligent in recording memories for me to look back on. Well, that definitely didn’t happen, and here we are mid-December.

MATERNITY STYLE FAVORITES

Brittany Gori | To B Candid | Maternity Style

Above all things I wanted a healthy pregnancy, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I also hoped to try and maintain my personal style throughout the process. However, when I found out I was carrying twins my entire wish-list was put on the back burner — my chest grew rapidly, and I started showing earlier than most. To be honest, unless you have a planned twin pregnancy, there is no way to mentally prepare for the exponential growth to your family. When it came down to buying a new pregnancy outfit, or saving to buy twice the amount of goods, the answer was pretty easy.

Bump-Date: 34 Weeks

Maternity Style | To B Candid | Brittany Gori | Pregnant with twins

They really don’t lie when they say pregnancy flies by. I’m just over 34.5 weeks pregnant (8.5 months), and like I’ve said time and time again, I thank my lucky stars for a really great pregnancy. I never got nauseous or had morning sickness, I still don’t have indigestion or heartburn, until last week my feet/legs haven’t been crazy swollen, I worked out/remained active as long as I physically could, and I’ve had decent energy levels until the summer heat kicked in. However, they also don’t lie when they say that those last few weeks are rough. I wanted to share some of the crazy I’ve endured which has contributed to me being MIA, so here it goes…
