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
