WhatIWore: Greetings from a chilly Indiana morning! Like a lot of the country, we woke up to cooler than normal summer temperatures and this expectant mama is not complaining! I’m excited in fact! Because I’ve got a little less to work with wardrobe wise, I appreciate the chance to layer and change things up a little bit. Here’s how I wore this dress the first time around.
When: July 15, 2014
Where: Breakfast/Work at my favorite lil spot
This was one of the first maternity dresses I bought and wore on a trip to San Francisco in March. I was quietly sharing my news but hadn’t made any online announcements yet and in hindsight, I totally did not need a maternity style. That said, I don’t regret going for this dress because it still works 20 weeks later!
I bought a similar style of dress in a nursing friendly cut for fall, but I might keep this number around in the future even when I’m not pregnant! That said, I’m eager to shop for fall clothes and get back into my normal jeans! I’ve been saving up all summer and I can’t wait to do a little shopping spree after baby is born and I’m feeling up to it!
In other random news, I am wildly, over the moon happy today. I don’t have a good reason why, but I suspect it’s because yesterday I challenged myself to go 24 hours without complaining. My pregnancy hasn’t been textbook easy and lately I’ve been whining every time I got kicked in the ribs or feeling slightly blah. Yesterday, every time Adam asked me how I was doing, I smiled and said great, even if I was only feeling 50% good. And voila! I’m off to a great start today. I’m going to try to extend this attitude another 48 hours and maybe longer! Wanna try it with me?
