I can't believe how quickly the last eight months have flown by. It's really starting to hit me that in just a handful of weeks, I could be holding my little peanut in my arms. But I won't lie, I'm starting to think I'm really going to miss being pregnant. Sure, I've yet to endure what I've heard are the most uncomfortable weeks and, sure, it's no walk in the park. However, I've found I enjoy having my little babe inside me where I can easily take care of her.
It's also been way more fun dressing the bump than I really thought it would be. Maternity clothes are so comfortable! Like these t-shirt tank dress paired with one of my trust chambray shirts doing double duty (since I can't button it up!). I almost never don heels these days as it's easier to keep my balance on flats, such as these nude d'orsay flats that have been in heavy rotation. I wore this outfit to the beautiful baby shower my California pals threw me in San Francisco this past week (so blessed!).
Also, if you missed it on social media, I was recently included in a 'mom jeans' street style round-up on Mother Mag. Be sure to see how the bump is styled over on their site!

We've all been there before. That feeling when when peering into your closet in the morning: "I have nothing to wear." But now, more than I ever, do I feel this way as my belly continues to swell. Which is why I fell in love with this graphic tee the minute I spotted it on 9th & Elm, a flash sale site for handmade and independent designers. I'm always being asked how I'm doing. It's perfect to just pull this piece on and let it do the talking for me; read my shirt!
For this look, I pulled the t-shirt over a LBD with an asymmetric hemline (last seen here) and shrugged into a boyfriend blazer. Keeping it simple, I wore pointed d'orsay flats and grabbed a trusty black satchel. For a bit of color, I swiped on a bit or coral lipstick.
