..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!
