winter white + a pregnancy update

Nov 25, 2014

blazer: banana republic// tee: sincerely jules// jeans: gap
shoes: zara (identical here)// clutch: zara (old)

I hope you didn't put your white jeans away from the summer! Pull those bad boys out! Winter whites is where it's at ladies. I love a crisp, clean look. And nothing pulls that off better than neutral tones. I am very much trying to get all my heel wearing in before my belly is just too big and I topple over, and before there is too much snow. Whichever decides to happen first! 

And on another note, I know I don't do too much pregnancy chit chat around here. But to be honest I just kind of go through the motions at this point. I have been pregnant the better part of the last four years, so kind of second nature. I know there are all those "pregnant blogger" formats out there, but I am not really good with stats, so I thought why not answer some recent questions. 

How are you feeling?
Great! Other than a little lower back pain here and there I feel pretty awesome. 

Did you have a feeling it was a girl?
Yes! Just based on that first trimester, and the fact that I seem to carry my boys and girls very differently. The boys I carried almost identically, down to the weight gain. I was all belly with them, really didn't see a difference anywhere else. But these girls! Totally different story. I carry them all in my hips and booty. So when my pants were taking a little more effort to get around my backside I thought ehh maybe girl. Then I caught a glimpse of my butt and said "oh holy girl!". And that was that. 

Maternity clothes?
I have not bought any maternity clothes just yet. Don't get your typing fingers in a tizzy, I am very much utilizing the hair tie around the pants button trick. So my regular clothing days are very numbered. Which brings me to ask you, what are some of your favorite maternity pieces? I am thinking of getting a few tanks and tees from Target, and maybe a pant or two from Asos. I really don't want a stock pile of maternity clothing seeing as how this is my last baby. So help me out folks!

What do the kids think?
I am loving this pregnancy with the boys being older. They are so much more aware of what is going on, even if they don't really know. They are constantly asking what the baby is doing, and if they can talk to her. Ace changed her name from Uncle to Light Switch in the car yesterday. Pierce is obsessed with kissing my belly. And Avalon just wants to sit on my legs and hit my bump like a drum, I know her sister appreciates it very much. 

Do I stick to a diet?
HA! Man I wish Chris was here to answer this question for me. But simply put, no. We have very much been overindulging, but I can blame Chris for that. You see he takes all the pregnancy hormones and really runs with them. He has the cravings, mood swings, fatigue. So he is really the one that says, oh I need _____ right now. This is totally out of character for him seeing as how he usually swears off all carbs and sugars. I do try and eat very healthy, but allow myself some simple pleasures. If you follow me on instagram you know.....

So there you have it, a little more of this pregnancy!

I really hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving filled with delicious food, drink a glass of wine for me, tons of belly laughs with family, and if you are feeling frisky (which I always am around family) drill your brother's new girlfriend on various topics. Not that I would ev-er do that to my brother. Have fun :)


  1. Looking good! I eat these posts up. And I'm not sure why. Pregnsncy can be so strange. Blogging pregnancy I mean. But. Document away last time pregnant mama!!! Must remember!

  2. You look fantastic!!! I love this outfit on you.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving pretty lady! I love the white look! I almost didn't see the baby! LOL I didn't spend much on maternity clothes. I mostly bought maxis and stuff that I could wear afterwards. Or did tee and tanks.

  4. I love your style! I wanted to ask... and forgive me if you have answered this question before somewhere else... living in AK is it hard to find clothes there? is it mainly online shopping? We are considering putting AK on the top of our list if it is available. We are up to move early next year. Here in Louisiana its mainly online shopping for everything or an hour and a half drive to the next big town. Just wondering if it is the same thing up there. Thanks so much. And again you look fabulous!!!

  5. Love your purse and heels! So pretty :)
