One for the Road.

Our Peanut showed up a few weeks earlier than expected and we couldn’t be more overjoyed. I still had a post queued up, so I figured I’d still share.

I mentioned in previous blog posts that I didn’t purchase any maternity apparel.. but I will admit dressing started getting difficult in the last few weeks. Spandex definitely became my friend.

It’s bittersweet looking at my bump pictures over the past few months and how I challenged my styling abilities. I can admit I miss my bump a little.. but this little bundle I’m holding right now.. just doesn’t get better than this.

Dress: American Apparel. Top: Sans Souci. Shoes: Coach.

Buttoned Up.

I have to be honest, I’m a popped collar kind of gal and rarely, if ever, button my collars to the top. I think the look is weird on me… like how I feel about wearing dangly earrings. Just my own opinion of myself.

Anyway, I’ve seen the buttoned up/statement necklace look has been popular and decided to give it a try. Not bad, eh? 

Cute look, but I say… this bump has to be the best accessory, though.

Shirt: Gap. Leggings: Cotton On. Necklace: Stella & Dot. Shoes: Steve Madden. Glasses: (thrifted).

I Won’t Complain…

…but clothes are getting snug… and that’s ok because there’s only a few weeks left in my pregnancy and I’ve purchased not one stitch of maternity clothing.

I received the nicest compliment from my sweetie about this outfit. He always gives me nice compliments, but he was specific with the detail and really made me smile. He said the scarf was the perfect accent to the outfit. Well, thanks, babe *blushing*. 

It’s the little things… especially when you’re pregnant.

Fatigued.

Ready for this trip down memory lane? I bought these Timberland boots in 2002.. in college.. during Thanksgiving break in New York. Talk about holding on. Talk about a great trip—I had an amazing time!

Nevertheless, it shows that I take care of my things… or I don’t wear them often enough… or that I may have a slight hoarding problem. We’ll stick with the former… because for 12 years old.. they look damn good. Yeah, basically like new.

Hat: (Urban Outfitters). Vest: Gap. Tee: Hanes. Pants: Old Navy. Boots: Timberland.

Be-jeweled.

All black is always a good idea—add a funky outerwear piece like this little jacket and voila… this ensemble. What makes me happiest.. all spandex everything.. because the bump is getting bigger!

The jacket is from a cute boutique in Oakland called Spoiled. I love how the shapes on the jacket match the shape of the stones in the necklace. I just noticed that—it wasn’t planned. Promise.

Orange You Glad?

So happy that I have existing pieces that have carried me through pregnancy. You know, while shopping in the past, it’s been a fleeing thought that a particular piece would work whenever I became pregnant. I’m talking 4-5 years ago. Talk about planning for the future, right? 

Top: (from Boris & Natasha. Charlotte, NC). Leggings: aerie. Shoes: Coach. Sunnies: Kate Spade. Beret: Liz Claiborne. Pearl bracelet: evieFrench.

Briefed.

Had a doctor’s appointment and traded a handbag for this briefcase. I have to have ALL of my documents with me when the discussing the little one. Official business. 

I really enjoy dressing this lil bump.. already having stretchy pieces, like this dress, is definitely a plus… esp. as the tummy expands. Being pregnant during fall/winter has given me the opportunity to layer my pieces which is another added bonus. Besides, these SoCal summers can be unforgiving. No, thank you.

Dotted & Striped.

There exists a fine line when belting while pregnant.. nonetheless, I’m doing my best to maintain some type of waistline. I tried on three before opting for this one. My trusty Gap belt I’ve had since high school… who knew it would take me from puberty to pregnancy? Look who keeps winning.
