..Floral Maternity Maxi

The deets: Pinkblush dress (c/o); J.Crew jean jacket; Banana Republic slides; Le Specs sunnies; Kate Spade bag (old, similar); GAP hat (old, similar).

I am 32 weeks pregnant now which is officially the start of my 8th month! Time is beginning to fly which is freaking me out a little because my due date is September 4th and by then the summer will be basically over which makes me sad. I feel like we just got going! 

Strangers stop me on a daily basis to ask me when I am due and then quickly make the "oh, you're going to be SO HOT" face. I used to find it slightly irritating but now it serves as a sweet reminder that I am actually enjoying this much more than people have expected me to! The heat has not been a problem for me at all, in fact, I haven't had to wash my hair as much since for whatever reason my scalp is much drier - which I count as a major benefit since it saves me time in the morning. I do have trouble taking in deep breaths now and also have developed a lot of varicose veins which are not fun but aside from that it's been pretty smooth sailing so far. I am hungry AT ALL TIMES, even right after I eat - I don't understand because there is no room left in me. I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast for the first time today and it was so damn satisfying I felt no guilt at all about it!

..Bumpin' in Red, White, & Blue


I wore this little outfit last weekend for a besties little girl's first birthday that was 4th of July themed so  OBVIOUSLY I waited it to post until today because...duh. Happy Fourth! I also wore this out to dinner on our Nantucket trip with a jean jacket, just a good summer buy for the bump! This may be TMI but I am officially getting to the point where I have to stuff my boobs into things because every month I swear they size up again. They are slightly spilling out in these photos but I like to keep it real here! This is what I am currently dealing with in week 30. I also have always been clumsy and fell up the metro steps like once every few weeks prior to being pregnant (there is a particularly embarrassing story involving bags of groceries and my produce making it up to the top before me) and now that I am knocked up I try to be more careful but every once and a while they get me..which is why i have a gnarly bruise on my leg. I will be spending the day enjoying not working OR metro riding mid-week. What a treat! Happy Birthday, America!

..Gold Ruffles

The deets: PinkBlush Maternity top (c/o); DL1967 maternity jean shorts; Madewell sandals; Brixton hat; Elizabeth and James sunnies (old, similar); Mango bag.

It was actually 98 degrees out here in DC on Sunday and this preggo was HOT. I mostly stayed in the A/C all day but wanted to make a Trader Joe's run for some flowers, fun mock-tail ingredients, and snacks for the week (because what is life without those two things while 30 weeks pregnant?). I made my husband stop for Sweet Frog fro-yo on the way home because it was NECESSARY for survival. We made it there but my poor flowers spent all of ten minutes in the car and were at the brink of death by the time I brought them home. Luckily even though I was melting I still felt cute in my yellow ruffled top! Its super soft and cozy and a nice breathable material. I just discovered PinkBlush for maternity stuff (prices are great too - look at these other cute maternity tops) but wish I had tried them out sooner!

..Nantucket Date Night

The deets: J.Crew blazer and J.Crew factory dress (similar pattern); Jack Rogers sandals; Kate Spade mini bag (similar); Tan is totally fake via Tan Towels.

So I was 28 weeks in these photos, feeling great (I had actually walked 7 miles earlier that day and still had energy to get cute for our last dinner of vacation) and had a fabulous faux tan that was made possible by ALL THE TAN TOWELS (I was doing one a night on vacation) and Vita Liberata. Fast forward to now - 30 weeks and I am pale, stressed, swollen, and I feel double the size and I somehow have 10 more weeks to grow. SO thankful I took my baby-moon then and not now! I wore this out on our last dinner in Nantucket - we went to The Proprietors and while nothing disappointed there it was probably our favorite restaurant experience of the trip.

I am seriously the worst at posting outfits when they are still available in stores, this one I actually purchased in March and hand to god just wore it for the first time two weeks ago so it's long gone - BUT - the store is having 50% of EVERYTHING for 4th of July so you can find yo' self something good for cheap. I also am so happy I wore it then because I honestly don't know if it would fit me now! It's not maternity but still worked. I am a true psycho and start planning my vacation outfits super far in advance because I get anxiety about not feeling unprepared or not good in what I packed and it effecting my experience. I like to have everything set so I just get dressed, don't worry about it again, and enjoy!

..Sconset Beach

The deets: MANGO hat (half off right now!) and bag; Madewell sandals (also on sale with code SPARKLER); Target maternity jean shorts; A Pea in the Pod tank; J.Crew chambray button down.

Let me start this post by saying Sconset Beach is probably one of the most beautiful places I've seen in real life. Its miles of pure white sand with tons of wild beach roses and lavender growing everywhere so it looks and smells like a dream. If you look closely you can see some paint platter on my leg because there were artists literally everywhere set up with their easels and I got a little on me walking by one of them in action. EVERY DIRECTION you look would make a gorgeous painting. We did the couple mile "bluff walk" which was where I snapped all these photos (yes those are little seals swimming in the ocean!) and it was definitely the most scenic walk I have ever done in my life. It was a slice of pure heaven and everyone should take a trip there. It was quite a lot of work for my 28 week bump so I was absolutely DEAD the next day after our 7 miles but it was so worth it!
