I've been trying really hard not to skip any weeks when doing outfit posts, not so much for the "maternity style" aspect of it, but mainly to look back and see how this bump progresses. Of course that's easier said than done when pajamas are far more comfortable than any "real" clothes and when you actually do manage to get dressed, you wear the same thing five days in a row. Just me? Whoops! I actually did get dressed every day last week, but the weather was never going to cooperate to photograph anything. We've had some crazy wet weather the past few weeks and it's putting a damper (literally) on my Summer! Even these photos were taken early in the evening yesterday but the sky quickly became overcast and the thunder started rolling in. After 3 solid weeks of rain and storms, it's looking like we'll get a reprieve later this week! Then you know, mid-90s days full of 95% humidity... Awesome! At least we'll be able to get in the pool...
I've also been trying to get a lot of wear out of my maternity dresses lately. Now that we're so close to the finish line (33 weeks tomorrow!), I know I probably won't get a ton of use out of them after the baby comes. Honestly I'll probably be too self-conscious to wear anything that hugs my mid-section post-partum haha! This is the same dress I wore here, but with a fun, nautical feel to it. (Sidenote: what do I have to do to get that dreamy hair back?! Humidity is not my friend...) I put it on yesterday before running errands and I asked myself why it took me so long to pair it with a bright red cardigan! I love me some red, white, and blue outfits! Of course I also made the remark to Mike that I felt like a big ol' bouy out in the ocean, but hey, what are you going to do?
We got a few big things squared away for the baby/nursery so far this week and I feel like we're chugging along! I wrote the outline of my birth plan and now I just need to polish it off and finish my hospital bag list. I'm actually loving my current workload with clients because so many of the designs I'm doing are so fun and different! People are keeping me on my toes and I can't wait to launch them all. I'm going to have so many installations going in the next week and a half, I'm not sure I can keep up! Other plans this week include: making our packing list for Florida, preparing as much content for our vacation as possible, lining up the next several Rad Gal features (email me if you're interested!), and shooting a few more outfits while the weather is nice. Here's to hoping we can get it all done! Today's biggest priority is starting design mocks for the 2 new clients I booked over the weekend. It's going to be a busy one for sure. Happy Tuesday! xo
