WhatIWore: I’m having one of those mornings where I already feel a little behind even though it’s still pretty early. Adam and I left the house at 6am to get to a doctor’s appointment near Indy, stopped for donuts on the way home and now I’m sitting at my favorite spot to edit the photos we just took and get my day going.
I was on the fence about keeping this dress, a maternity style from ASOS, but I’m glad I did. It’s light and cool and airy and bright and I can’t help but getting the tune to Edelweiss in my head as I wear it. I skipped any belt to give an illusion of a little more length (because boy oh boy, do I feel wide these days!) and paired it with some of my favorite accessories.

Where: Working at the Coffee Shop
Although I haven’t been wearing a lot of jewelry these days, I found this charm bracelet I made a few years ago in a forgotten pocket of a handbag and have been wearing it a lot since. I talk a lot on the blog about old Jessica, or at least the styles I associate with being in my mid-late 20s and living in Brooklyn. This piece doesn’t date back that far (I made it the first spring I was back in Bloomington) but I do like how it’s still a little nostalgic for me. Adam and I were in our first year of marriage, in a new place and planning our new life together. I like wearing pieces like this because sadly my fingers and joints have expanded to the point where I had to remove my wedding band. Better to take it off now than to have them cut it off later! Oh well! I love the symbolism and still instinctively go to touch it about 1000 times a day but I feel more married and in love now than ever. Plus I have a tan line in it’s place. ;)
