Dressing the Bump

I'm still struggling with the maternity clothing options or lack thereof. I think I just need to accept it, but it's definitely hard and I can't wait to shop for real clothes again. Here are some recent bump pictures. These are all within the last month, but there has been a lot of growth. Sometimes I don't know how I can get any bigger, my ribs surely cannot expand anymore. Right? I can still wear select items from my closet, but not too many. I have decided I need to stop trying to make non maternity clothes work because it just bums me out not being able to wear all the new fall trends.  My favorite place to shop recently has been Gap Maternity. I have bought most of my staples there (jeans, work pants, yoga pants, and tanks). Any suggestions for maternity clothing stores would be greatly appreciated!

This week

I got some new matching PJ's! I love them! Dan was making fun of me though because I bought them so big. I just want them to fit for the next few months. Cute though, right? Old Navy. 

I had my glucose test. I'm sure it's not hard to believe, but I liked the taste. ha! Fingers crossed that I passed, because I'd rather not do it again with the multiple blood draws. 

Maybe the best part of the week was seeing Mindy Kaling speak at the Exact Target Connections conference. I love her! If you haven't read her book, read it! And watch The Mindy Project. It's hilarious! 

Today we went to the Colts game! It was such a beautiful day! Feels like summer again. Go Colts!

Mini Me

Mini Me

Lately, I have been leaning more towards having a girl. Based on the old wives tales I feel like maybe it's a girl. Although, who really knows?!? But as I try to shop for myself I can't help but check out the baby section. Thank goodness I don't know what we are having because I would have already purchased so many baby clothes. I can't get enough of baby girl clothes. All the items above are Old Navy/Gap and just too cute! I'm sure if we have a girl she will be a mini me wearing lots of dresses and cute layers. I can't wait to find out what we are having! It gets harder and harder the more pregnant I become.

Ankle Boots Under $100

Ankle Boots Under $100

If there is one trend you should try this year (if you haven't already) it's ankle boots! I have been on the lookout for a few years for the perfect pair. I think certain styles work differently on different body types. My current favorites are above, all under $100. I personally prefer a shorter ankle boot with a chunkier heel for comfort. As much as I would love to have the cutout and peep toe style, I don't think it's as functional for areas with cooler climates, as you wouldn't be wearing those in the snow. For the link to all the boots above, click HERE.

Buffalo gals, won't ya come out tonight?

Buffalo Gals Won't Ya Come Out Tonight

I've been seeing lots of plaid for fall and in particular the classic "Buffalo Plaid". It's simple and goes with everything. I recently bought the Gap shirt above, but it probably won't button for long.

Colorful Cribs

Colorful Cribs

I love all the options available on the market for cribs! We chose the grey one, but I really love the green one in the center. We set our crib up this weekend and are making progress on the nursery. It has been really fun designing the nursery, but somewhat difficult not knowing the sex of the baby.

Blue and Pink cribs from Pottery Barn Kids
Green crib from Land of Nod
Grey crib is Babyletto brand
Yellow crib is from Wayfair.

Altuzarra For Target

Altuzarra For Target

Another designer collab with Target is set to hit stores Sept 14th! The Altuzarra for Target line has 50 items ranging from apparel and accessories to shoes. All items are priced under $100. I am always interested in checking out the designer lines for Target. I really like some of the items above especially the green python print blouse. I don't know that I will wait in line, but I will definitely check out the designer collection at some point.
