Tres Chic!

You know that little, witty joke, “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.” That’s not really a witty joke. I always find myself coming back to black. It’s the perfect color. Or…the perfect lack of color? Ponder that.

I have to note, quickly, that all of the shoes I’ve worn on here from Charlotte Russe have been recent purchases, but they’re not on their website. Who knows why, but they are available in stores if you’re looking for my exact shoes! image-84 image-86

I was not at all prepared for the weather to get as hot as it has while I’m pregnant. It’s only been a few days really, but I figured, I’m due mid May, it won’t be too hot, I’ll be good! I owned zero short dresses from my first pregnancy. As I’ve posted before, my body was WAY different with baby #1. I was huge. I was super self conscious so I never wore anything that showed my legs, leaving me entirely unprepared for this pregnancy. This is one of two items I purchased this time around that is short and wearable in this heat!

I bought this dress in the beginning of my pregnancy. I loved it so much I bought in a medium since they didn’t have it in my size. I knew I’d have to wait to wear it, one, for it to get warm enough, and two, for it to fit me, ha. Now that my bump is much bigger it fits much better. It’s still a little loose in certain areas but the drawstring helps a lot. Only 2 days left ya’ll! Well actually I had my last doctor’s appointment yesterday and they think I’ll go on or right around my due date, but not before. The suspense is killing me!!

Casual Days

This is probably the one and only time you will ever see my natural hair on this blog. I have been too lazy to keep up with it every day. And to be honest, it could probably use a decent break from all the torture I put it through to make it look even somewhat presentable. So here ya go, casual days with casual wear & casual hair.

There were a few days last week when it got a little cool and rainy out, but it still had that warm summer feel to it. I thoroughly enjoy days like that. Not when they’re all rainy, but like, a nice warm day with a little rain to give you a break from the heat and then it clears up again. You know what I mean? BUT anyway, this sweater, which I bought the last time I was pregnant, is perfect for days like that. I seriously love this sweater, I wish I could wear it always!

Soooo a little update here… I’m due SATURDAY!  Yep. 4 days. Anyone wanna place bets on when you think she’ll arrive, or how much she’ll weigh? haha! We actually did that with Charlotte. No one guessed her exact weight but two people came very close, it was kinda of fun. So if I go radio silent in the next few days, you guys will know where to find me! ;] Wish us luck!

April Showers Bring May Babies

This past weekend my friends and family gathered at my house to throw me an adorable little baby Sprinkle! For those who are unaware, a baby sprinkle is like a baby shower, just for your second baby. One of my best friends offered to organize one for me, as she is the mother of two kids herself and knows how important it is to make sure mommies-to-be and the second babies are very much appreciated! (If you have children of your own, you know how much less exciting it can be when the second child is announced vs all of the excitement surrounding the first, hah. NOT for the moms, but for everyone else). So we had a quaint little brunch at my house and got to enjoy the gorgeous weather and relax a little bit! Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the afternoon!
