3rd Trimester style + survival favorites.

Pregnancy Style | In Honor of Design

I am at the end of the third trimester friends. How has this happened? I know…

Three very busy little ones is how it happened….distracting me and keeping me on my feet until I ran into a wall the other day and realized I was about to have a new little person amongst us! It’s really all I can think about these last few days… I am more than ready to just have this baby in my arms…. [Read more…]

Conversation starters.

Summer style Blush + White via In Honor of DesignStriped Weekender | In Honor of DesignBump style via IHOD36 weeks. 

I have actually loved the conversation starters a baby in the womb can drum up. It took me an extra hour to get through the store the other day because I was stopped no less than 5 times throughout. In the fine cheese kiosk, over the deli counter, the bakery, around the corner in aisle 3, and once again during my debate over the frozen pizzas in the freezer section….all by different people who wanted to either tell their story or hear mine. I left the store with a wide grin because a new life is actually life giving. One older man wanted to tell me with excitement about his first grandchild being born the next morning. Another, spilled forth her story about how due to a stroke inducing medical condition, she could only have her one daughter, and how grateful she was for that one. And there there was the man with the hair cap on whose first child is due the same week mine is due, and wanted to chat all about it. I could tell how much love he already had for his child.

I don’t really love all the physical challenges pregnancy can bring, but I do love having this baby close to me wherever I go. I realized I am so lucky to be a temple to this little soul for a brief blink in time ….no matter if it feels like years right now.

Just a few weeks left… so the big elbows to the ribs, kicks to the stomach, and swollen feet are reminding me. I can’t wait to see who has been causing the ruckus:)

Bump Style: Date Night

Bump style | In Honor of Design
black and white

Getting date night ready is a little frustrating these days since your closet options start to narrow to about 9 things total that fit you! I was extremely relieved to try on a few Liz Lange dresses and find that they are very accommodating to a growing bump. It is fitting without being too tight, and is comfortable without feeling like you are wearing a tent;)

This black and white Liz Lange dress is a thicker cotton, and since it is sleeveless, I have worn it a few times already due the GA heat that has arrived. I have a feeling it will be one of my most used pieces. 

Heels don’t have to be too daunting either when they are a chunky heel like these. I don’t lose my balance and topple over if they are a wider heel!

Tomorrow is the fifth and final look for The Bump and Liz Lange for Target pregnancy style challenge. You will be able to vote for your favorite then! Thanks for following along this week:) This is out of my comfort zone at this point in pregnancy, but it’s been a fun challenge to get dressed and enjoy this unique phase of motherhood!

In case you missed, look one, look two, and look three!
