// My Uniform - Maternity Style - 26 Weeks



Since you couldn't really "see" my bump in my last outfit post, now I'm putting that baby on full blast! Can we just talk for a second about how I'll be 7 months pregnant in a couple of days?! Where did the time go?! This particular outfit is hands down my pregnancy uniform. I have worn it more times that I will ever care to admit, and I have absolutely no plans on stopping until this baby is born. Despite being featured on my Instagram a hundred times, I had yet to photograph it for the blog. If you see me at Toby's baseball game or palling around town, chances are high you'll see me in this dress haha I've worn it so much that the fabric is pilling all over the darn thing. It was a reasonably cheap purchase from Old Navy (especially considering the current cost-per-wear) and I'm tempted to just go snag a few more. I was hesitant to buy the chambray button-up because I was afraid it'd be a little too Dukes of Hazard-y, but I love the contrast between the two. (Shout out to the Old Navy mannequin sporting a similar get up one fateful shopping day!) Really the only thing I ever change about this outfit is the necklace I pair it with. Lately I've been playing with this spiked black and gold necklace under my collar. I wish I could remember where I got this necklace! Stitch Fix maybe? I know you can't see my shoes very well, but they're the most comfortable rubber "sandals" I've ever owned. They were part of our WWDMAGIC swag bag back in August and they were my saving grace at that tradeshow. Not only are they cute and lightweight, but the rubber is so cushion-y and it basically molds to the shape of your feet. I wish I had a million pairs because they are the best!


This past weekend was spent running a boatload of errands like picking out new glasses for Mike, rotating Honeybean merch out of some local boutiques, and finally ordering the rocker for the nursery. I wish I could say it was as productive as it sounds, but at the end of the day on Saturday I just felt like we wasted so much time and money haha! We did pick up a few final veggies and herbs for our little container garden and those are happily transplanted in our pots on the deck now. We managed to spend the afternoon with my parents on Sunday and Toby wore himself out! He crashed out for the night around 5:30pm. Merry Christmas to us! His new favorite thing in the world is flying kites, so he got in some good ol' kite flying before the rain and storms rolled in. We all headed over and grabbed lunch at the local Mexican restaurant, and I caught a cat nap on their couch while watching River Monsters haha! Then the yucky weather showed up. Seems like a huge part of the US is getting hit with some crazy severe weather this week! Our news stations are flooding the tv with tornado warnings and all that jazz. Crossing my fingers everyone stays safe! My Facebook feed is overrun with folks freaking out. I made the executive decision this morning to keep Toby home from school because so many other parents in town were. Plus nearby counties had already called to dismiss school early and I didn't want to have to pick him up in the middle of it all. I'm hoping it's just some severe storms and nothing too crazy. I love me some Spring weather, but I'd prefer the crazy thunderstorms without the tornadoes, thanks! I am loving how green and lush everything is looking though. Guess that's Mother Nature for ya.


Today I'll be spending time catching up on sign orders, installing a blog design or two, and then working on the next Kaelah's Closet sale! I'm hoping to get items listed at some point this weekend so stay tuned if you're in the market for some dresses! I think I'm getting to the bottom of my "storage" stock so I don't know how many more rounds I'll have. But man it feels so good to purge all of this stuff! I'll probably get rid of half of my current closet even! Luckily this week we have a full week off from baseball. And Mike starts nursing school on Thursday (!!!). I'm hoping we'll finally order the crib for the nursery and then go pick up the chair once it arrives. Then we'll be well on our way to having the nursery all done up! Jeez, looking back over this post I realize just how "boring" and suburban my life has become haha! Oh well, at least it's a comfortable kind of boring :P Happy Monday! xo

  1. There's nothing wrong with having a uniform, definitely. Or being boring, haha.

    I feel better knowing someone else is still trying to get the whole nursery thing together at seven months! We're having a weird time of it, and only JUST getting started. Oh well. It's not like she's going to notice if we haven't finished by thet ime she's born, right? We'll just say 'right'.

    I am already elbow-deep in the Sandal Times, too. I'm not allowed to wear them at work or I would just never wear shoes again until this fall, haha.

    1. I was hoping to have the nursery mostly finished before Mike started school, but that just won't be happening sadly! Guess I'll have something to spend my time one while he and Toby are off at school though!

  2. You look amazing,, I had a couple of maxi dresses like this whilst I was pregnant. I loved wearing more fitted thing. Since having my baby girl I'm back to skater dresses that hide my lumps and bumps but I miss dresses like this, x

    1. Haha I'm sure I'll be tossing out everything remotely resembling jersey knit as soon as this baby comes! I'll start dressing like I'm wearing a tent, I bet! You're not alone <3

  3. I have some maxi skirts and dresses I am living in right now too, they are just so comfy! You are way too cute and making my baby fever spike! Da'Hubby is not quite ready but you're never really ready.

    1. 100% this. I think even if you plan for a baby for years, you're never really "ready" haha! Or maybe that's just what I tell myself to feel better! :P

  4. You look fantastic! I love that outfit. I've been toying with getting a chambray shirt as well -- I actually bought one, then returned it because I just didn't feel like I could pull it off. I LOVE them on other people, but I just haven't found the right one for me yet, I guess :-/

  8. You look absolutely lovely in that dress! I bought a black maternity skirt from Old Navy when I was pregnant, but I didn't like the way it clung to my thighs so I only wore it a few times in public. I wish I had that dress instead!

    1. For some reason the maxi skirts never quite do it for me! Like you said, they cling in the worst spots! I hate how my thighs look in them too!

  11. Hi,

    I didn't ever commented on your blog even if i'm an assidue reader.
    (I'm french, and not a very good english speaker).

    So, this is just to say that you're beautiful, and i agree for Ipanema shoes.
    The best shoes i'd ever had.
    (My big sister made me discover Ipanema as she was living in Aussie.)

    Kiss from Paris :)

  12. This is such a great outfit! And it's timeless so it'll still be cool in a few years. Can't go wrong with a black dress and chambray! Pinning for when we have #2 in the next couple years. :) <3

  13. Super! I dress like this all the time without being pregnant. Jeans shirts are so easy to throw over almost anything!. Still loving your blog. Congrats on the pregnancy. XX Maureen
