The sun is finally shining but we're still bundled up over here. It seems like it's been the longest and most real winter we've ever had. Our winter clothes are getting a lot of use! I wore this faux fur BB Dakota coat all weekend... even around the house. It's been a favorite for months, but I'm looking forward to swapping it out for something a lot lighter... soon. We cannot wait for warm weather!
Over the weekend I was feeling so blah and uninspired with the current rotation of things that fit me. I decided to shop my closet, if you will, and put together this look with pieces that are all a couple of years old. Sometimes I think I have these pregnancy wardrobe delusions where I put something on thinking it will still fit the way it did a few months/weeks/days ago and then get frustrated when that's not the case. So I went back to some old faithfuls that worked my first pregnancy and was happy and comfortable all day.
What day is it? Is anyone else in a post-Christmas fog? The days between Christmas and New Years always seem to blend into a weird haze and I never really know what to do with myself. This year I'm being lazy and productive... the best of both worlds. Jeff's been cleaning out the garage and once he finishes that we'll be tackling the guest room. But let's move on to what I'm wearing.
My go-to outfit lately has been a sweater and jeans. It keeps me warm and it's comfortable enough to work with my bump at the stage I'm in right now. I've been loving Madewell's sweater selection this winter. This one is especially fun with the striped balloon sleeves. It has a slight boxy fit and I went one size up to make it work with my bump.
I'm over half-way through my second pregnancy and if there's anything I learned from the first time it's that getting dressed isn't always easy. Luckily last time I picked up some tricks (aka closet staples) to soften the blow. I have a couple of tried and true pairs of jeans that I'm still fitting in/relying on heavily. And I've also been trying out two new pairs of maternity jeans.
