1. I totally agree that with great risk comes great reward – but I tend to not take so many risks – at least not things that I personally think of risks. Maybe I take them in clothing moreso than in other areas of my life!

    I love the color combo you’ve got going on here – the muted yellow with burgundy and leopard is great together!!

  2. Leopard is my FAVORITE!!! This outfit is DA BOMB on you!
    About risks…I think we takes risks without even knowing it sometimes..but the big ones…the ones where you can fall flat on your face? Those are the best ones! God has a plan for each of us and He will always guide you to where you need to be 🙂

  3. I love the lime green! And your little bump!!! I totally know what you mean. I am a dreamer and my husband is always teasing me about whatever wild idea I’ve come up with (“whyyyy did I marry a dreamer!”) BUT when it comes to taking risks, I take my sweet time, analyze the poo out of it, and take it really slow. Totally fear of failing. Like my boutique – still not online yet, but when it’s up Im going to be 100% comfortable with it and have an exact game plan for (hopefully) any possibility!

  4. I would say that I am a calculated risk taker, I don’t take risks for no reason, but if one comes along that sounds promising, I jump on board. Moving to Nashville. Adopting a dog. Dating a super cute boy from Oregon (ok, maybe that one wasn’t risky, but I’m glad I took that fork in the road nonetheless!)

    Love your lime + leopard hottttt mama! And the new YOLO Monday Spotlight is so FUN!

  5. Ok, first off… your bump is darling 🙂 You are such a cute pregnant woman! And I would never have thought to pair leopard and lime together but it works so well!

  6. Totally loving the animal prints! I’m definitely a risk taker, if you don’t take the risk you will always wonder “what if”. I don’t think I’ve ever regretted taking a risk, no matter what you learn something from the outcome, good or bad, and grow as a person because of it.

  7. My philosophy is if you don’t try you will NEVER know. And I think the NOT knowing is what would kill me more than the actual failure. You do take risks….every day by posting on your blog. 🙂 And look how successful you have become. 🙂

  8. I think it is better to have tried and failed than to have spent your whole life wondering what if? I think sometimes what may seem like a failure at the time is actually part of a sequence of events that is aligning you on the right tracks. Take my life at the moment, my husband and i have lost out business and home, yet we are excited (and a little scared) about where are future is going to take us next and what project we will tackle head on. We are happy and healthier now and we can say we tried it. ultimately the business did fail, but wow, we had 6 wonderful years working together and we are stronger than ever and learnt so very much. In every failure there are lessons to be learnt, so perhaps nothings ever really a failure.
    Ok so the serious stuff over, you look wonderful Molly, cutest pregnant lady ever!
    And thank you so so SO much for featuring me and my sneaker wedges, that has truly made my day! (that was a risk in itself, i was sooo unsure about them, but hey i love them,haha!)
    ok longest comment ever over… sorry about that!!xxx

    1. AMEN, rachel!! i am in that same position – i mean, if you never try you can’t say that you failed big. or something. you know what i mean. that’s amazing that you guys are looking at life in such a positive way! i know that things are going to work out for you!!!!

  9. Great post — I DEFINITELY fear failure. Or worse — just being ignored entirely. I have so many idead (and I would love to be self employed one day. One of the things that holds me back is fear of failure fo sho!)

    Also, you belly makes me so very happy.

  10. You’re so right about taking risks. Risks are what gets you to where you are. The problem is, though, that risks are hard! PS. I love that cardigan!

  11. I typically play it safe now that I’m married (I feel more like an adult), but the biggest risk I ever took was moving 1700 miles from home to NC at the age of 21. Started my career and ended up marrying my main squeeze because of it!

  12. Love your belt! You make pregnancy look super-cute!

    The biggest risk my husband and I have taken has definitely paid off. Two years ago we were living and working overseas and decided to not renew our contracts. We wanted to move back to the U.S. and saw an opportunity to live anywhere we wanted. To put the quality of home life first for once in our adult lives. So we did. We took the plunge and moved to Portland, Oregon, without any jobs or home or family or friends. And two years later, we have bought our first home, I have a full-time faculty librarian job, and my husband is living out his dream of being both a publishing writer (his first book is being published soon!) and a college writing instructor. We feel so blessed every day, and we don’t take this balance of work and home love for granted. But this all was possible because of taking a huge risk! 😀

  13. I love that leopard cardigan.

    I find that the older I get the less likely I am to take risks and that is kind of disappointing. When I was in my 20’s my entire life was about risk. The bigger the better. I travelled Europe on my own, lived overseas on my own and really put myself “out there” both for hurt and happiness.

    Now that I am older I don’t like to think about dealing with the consequences of risks that have gone bad. I don’t bounce back as quickly from the pain. I think though after dealing with a life threatening illness in my family this week that I will be reintroducing more risk in my life. Life is too short just to coast along hoping for little or no bumps along the way.


    1. thank you so much, suzanne!! i know what you mean about getting older – i think it’s getting older that has actually made me think more about my decisions and the things that I have chosen to do over the years… i get very introspective as i get older!

  14. You are looking great babe…every time I turn around and I see you, you look even more beautiful.
    I like to take risk (sometimes) in just about everything. if you dont, then you will never know….and if you try and fail, at least you know and you can try differently or harder, etc. just go for it.

  15. Definitely not a frequent risk-taker – but I admire people who are. To me risks like doing a vlog (on the blog today!) for the first time was very scary. I know it sounds lame, but that’s a major step for me. I think the small steps are just as significant sometimes.

  16. Thanks so much for hosting. It is a risk, I think, to put yourself out there every week, numerous times a week, into the world on a blog where you bare your soul and share yourself and invite people to respond. If you can do that, you are surely brave enough to take other risks. People don’t get to the end of their lives and say ‘I wish I hadn’t done X’, they usually say ‘I wish I had’. Failure is perception. And the only person whose perception counts is yours. Go for it!!!!!

  17. i love those pants! i need to wear a belt more often – you always look so cute when you do!! I am so not a risk taker! but need to not be afraid to be!

  18. i am by no means a risk taker. If I am comfortable, I want to stay that way. I’ve been thinking about making a big change here lately, but I am such a chicken. I guess all you can do is pray about it!!

  19. Love this outfit. You are doing such a great job dressing your little bump! 🙂 Im a bit of a perfectionist and therefore hate failure too… I guess to me taking risks goes back to hearing God’s voice. Because when He tells you to do something you have no other option (well you do) but to jump right in. When God told us to move to Turkey, it seemed like a huge risk at the time. What if He chickened out? What if had said no? If not for knowing with absolute certain that was what He wanted for us, I’d have not taken the risk to go. I have some many other examples like this. Phew, Im getting deep for a Monday morning! Have a great week Molly.

  20. I’ll be honest a. You are the best dressed preggers person EVER and b. I think risks are what life is all about…….sometimes taking a chance leads you to the most incredible miracles :)……… Just started choking up…dangit im always so emotional this early in the morning!!

  21. Love your denim jacket! When it comes to fashion, I kind of scared to go out of my comfort zone. But I’ll try to change that and be more comfortable with every outfits I’m going to wear.

  22. Love your bright pants and leopard loafers! I have some too and they have been my favorite this winter 🙂 Thanks for hosting.

  23. 4 years ago I took a risk that completely changed my life, I came from Russia by myself and now I have my beautiful hubby, baby on the way and amazing friends and creative fun job-what else can I dream about, right?:)
