Outfit Post: Hearts

Before we even jump into this post I’ve got a DISCLAIMER. These pics were taken about a month or so ago, hence the much smaller size than my current beach ball state. I don’t want anyone thinking I’m trying to pawn this off as what I’m working with right now because right now is not pretty. But since I just realized I never posted these, I figured why not kick off the week with an outfit post. Well that and I am wearing the same shirt today. I’ll try and snap a picture for Instagram so you can see the HUGE difference.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way…

You guys, these whole last few weeks of being pregnant are hard. Like I know it’s supposed to be all bundles of joy and nesting but for me, it’s mostly panicking that we didn’t start getting crap prepared until like a week ago (hey we put the crib together this weekend – so there’s that) and trying to figure out what we’re going to name the little lady. Yeah, when I said we’ve been putting things off – I meant it. It’s just that with two other small mess-makers (so.many.crumbs), there isn’t much time to peacefully select bedding and debate the merits of useful baby gadgets.

Thankfully the massive swelling I experienced with both my other kids managed to hold off until the last couple weeks. Now every morning when I look in the mirror I meet a new version of myself (she’s nothing to write home about) and realize I have one less pair of pants that fit. Sounds fun right? I feel like we should all talk about this side of things more often. And props to you if you’re one of those gals that looks like a Barbie doll with a basketball up your shirt (so many of these gals on Insta – who are you and where can I steal your genes?) but that ain’t me. I’m officially going into hibernation mode right as all the fun stuff starts happening in town for Derby. Gotta be honest, it’s giving me a little bit of the blues but just trying to push through it, focus on meeting our new little lady and long summer pool days in the future.

Speaking of Derby, I’ll be coming strong this week with Derby Dress of the Day posts. I want to get as many in as possible so you have time for those last minute orders before May 7th! Plus there’s a ton of dress options here and hats, shoes and bags over here.

J.Crew Regent Blazer (love this – such a great basic, I have it in three colors, AND it’s 30% off today) | J.Crew Maternity Jeans (the best maternity jeans – they don’t lose their stretch and are super comfortable and are on sale today too!) | Heart Blouse from Nordstrom Rack (so old – similar here) | Madewell Booties (still wearing boots because they are one of the only things that fit these days)

Outfit Post: Stripes + Sneakers

It’s come to the point in this nine month escapade where getting dressed in the morning can be a daunting task. I know some people see getting dressed as more of a utility every morning but normally, it’s one of my favorite times of the day. There is some odd joy in putting together the look for the day and hoping that day’s outfit will hit it out of the park (or at least a ground rule double). Yes there are some strike-outs (sorry for all the baseball metaphors – my son has a t-ball game this week so it’s on the brain) but that’s also part of the fun. Lately though, I’ve just been trying to make the team bus and not forget my uniform (okay that’s the last one, I promise).

I’ve talked about how I’ve tried to avoid buying a bunch of maternity clothes but there comes a point when you really just want some stuff that fits, covers the bumps and most importantly, doesn’t make you look like you’ve totally given up. Cue PinkBlush Maternity. Last week I folded and ordered a few new things from their seriously big selection of cute, not dowdy, maternity clothes.  The best part of all is the price point. You can snag a few things and not feel guilty buying something you’ll only wear for a few months.

This striped tee has been in heavy rotation since it arrived – super soft, the right length (not too long where it looks like a dress but long enough) and cute. Plus it pairs perfectly with my new sneakers – so that’s a plus.

PinkBlush also has a ton of really cute dresses, which is key as we get closer to summer. There’s a ton of maxis (like this fun pink option) plus options (like this mint floral one – i got it in blue but the mint is so cute)for if you’re heading to a wedding or other event where leggings and a tee just won’t do.

I’m also eyeing one of their robes to throw in my hospital bag – this one is my fave.
