does this shirt make me look pregnant?

when: wednesday, sept. 7, 2011

what i wore:
glasses: charlotte russe
top: h&m mama
necklace: gap
jeans: banana republic
shoes: old navy via TxSCC swap (these ones)

where: work, date night

i was hesitant to wear this shirt before i had a visible bump, but i love the drape of it and just couldn’t wait. i was hoping it wouldn’t make me look like i was either letting myself go completely or wearing pajamas to work, so i thought pairing it with skinny jeans and cute shoes would help. i hope it worked!

before i got pregnant, i was only interested in slim-fitting and waist-cinching tops. now, the idea of a growing belly has made me think differently about what clothes i should buy, and it’s even pushed me to try some new things. case in point.

man, there’s all sorts of life changes going on over here. :)

may the best team win

when: friday, sept. 9, 2011

what i wore:
sunglasses: gift, modern amusement
t-shirt: vintage, goodwill
cardigan: american apparel
pin: vintage, from eric’s mom
jeggings: american eagle
shoes: isaac mizrahi for target

where: work

around these parts, the iowa vs. iowa state football game is a big deal. i didn’t grow up as a fan for either team, but i love this ISU shirt i found at goodwill about eight years ago. it is by far the greatest thing i’ve ever thrifted. it’s from 1977, and was the first time the two teams played since 1934.

it’s so special, i’m not even sure i should be wearing it.

then, i married a hawkeye fan and our unborn child already has two iowa hawkeye bibs from my mother-in-law. since i don’t really care, i guess my vote doesn’t count. i wore the “go hawks!” pin on my cardigan just for him, since i am fairly impartial. and i think iowans should like both teams, at least when they’re not playing each other.

in the end, my team won! woo! it was a fun game to watch and went to three overtimes. go state!

hats off

what i wore:
hat: h&m
scarf: mimi bird
sweater: h&m
leggings: aerie
boots: steve madden

where: errands

i am feeling so inspired by my new purchases. it’s been a really long time since i bought 11 things in one day. i couldn’t fall asleep that night…my mind was racing about all the different ways i can wear them and where they will hang in my closet. dorky, but true.

i bought this sweater in a size bigger than usual, but it fits me great now and it should last me a number of months as my belly grows. so, that makes it official: this is what i’ll be wearing every weekend this fall. it’s cute but still very relaxed, comfortable and easy. {…yeah, it’s basically the same as last fall’s weekend outfit.}

bring it on, fall! i’m so ready.

week 13 of 40

this dress was so dreamy that we went to three different h&m stores to find my size in this color (and minneapolis is not like new york city where there is one on every street). it was totally worth it. it’s similar to the smock dress i posted last week, but the $25 price tag was more appealing than $65. (however, looking at these photos, it would be great if it was a little longer…)

i got to thinking about the fact that no one else will probably ever wear this exact same outfit. i may not have even worn it if i wasn’t limited to the items i had packed for our weekend trip. i had three pairs of tights with and — believe it or not — these matched the best (my other choices were mint and peach). i wore it to church without the blazer, but fall has officially arrived in minnesota and i definitely needed another layer for our afternoon adventures.

isn’t that kind of fun to think about, though? i’m only wearing a handful of items, but it’s doubtful that someone else would have all the same items and pair them in this exact way.

outfit details:
necklace: gift, lisa leonard
blazer: heritage 1981
dress: h&m
tights: we love colors (olive green)
boots: simply vera vera wang via kohl’s

random pregnancy notes…

  • the 2nd trimester hormones have arrived and i am feeling so happy and beautiful about my growing belly.
  • breathing for two is harder than i thought it would be.
  • all the pregnancy sites are telling me about how by this point my breasts have gone through a growth spurt. still waiting on that one…
  • we are very eager to find out what we’re having! hopefully we’ll be able to at the end of october.
