Dressing the Bump: Week 31

Okay, so I’m a day late, yikes. This whole being 8 months pregnant thing is really taking it’s toll on my brain function. I am always either forgetting things or thinking that things are way sooner than they are. Hot mess central. This week has been especially nuts with a lot of family celebrations and then preparing for being gone next week for one of my best friend’s wedding. As promised, I have answered your questions below. You all were surprisingly nice, which makes me think I may be up for doing another Q & A in the future.

Small Shop Spotlight: Alexandra Rose Handmade

The moment I knew I was having a little girl, I made a decision. I was going to be picky about how I dressed her. This is until of course she could voice her own opinions, in which case I’m sure she’ll pick the most obnoxious combination of clothing as most toddlers do. My favorite was a pink and purple dress, halloween socks, and glittery ruby red slippers. God bless my mother for letting me leave the house like that. One of the places I discovered on my journey for stylish girl clothes is Alexandra Rose Handmade.

Dressing the Bump: Week 30

I’m 30 weeks and loving this nightie and robe combo from Belabumbum! Plus the maternity and nursing chemise is a dual product since it works now for my giant bump and will be perfect for middle of the night nursing sessions when baby arrives. I’m really trying to soak up this week because next week we will be in a single digit countdown and I know at that point time is going to fly by. Between all of the baby prep and all of the other craziness happening in our family, this baby will be here in the blink of an eye. I cannot wait to smell his sweet little newborn head, there’s something about that newborn smell that acts as a magic cure for all of the cares of the world. Until then, I have been finding my source of calm in my morning quiet times, this morning was particularly meaning for me.

Dressing the Bump: Week 29

I’ll be honest, I was not feeling these photos you guys. I just felt like my “look” wasn’t worthy of a post. That’s because, if I’m being honest, most days I’m wearing some version of this get-up. I guess you could call this my mom-iform. Get it? Like a mom uniform, I know I’m pretty clever. Then I realized how important it was for me to share this look because not every day to I get out the door with my hair done, make up on, or the perfectly put together outfit. This is just Exhibit A.

Dressing the Bump: Week 28

Hello third trimester. Holy cow. As I’m typing this I’m currently wondering how on earth I am going to survive another 12 weeks of pregnancy. To be fair I had some form of food poisoning this last weekend so I think that added a little drama to mix. I’m also starting to think that this baby never sleeps, which terrifies me for my future. He is always, always, always, moving and not just little sweet movement either. I’m talking the kind that look like I have a MIB alien in me or how a cartoon character looks when his stomach growls really loud. Can you picture it? I’ve found myself wondering if I would rather my belly get way bigger to accommodate this future olympic gymnast or if I’d rather just put up with all the crazy. At this point I’m thinking bring on the quintuplet sized belly if it means I don’t feel like my baby is going to bust his foot or arm through my skin. I warned you I was feeling a bit of extra dramatic flair. Well this week’s look comes to you from Arden and its the softest and most comfortable dress maybe that I’ve ever owned. Plus it has pockets, which is like every mama’s dream.
