I posted my last pregnancy outfit earlier this week, and now it’s time to face the facts. I have a cute squishy baby and a squishy postpartum body I’m learning to love. I’ve been living in leggings.
One recent post-baby purchase I’ve made has been this tunic from LOFT. It’s so soft and cozy, and is the perfect length to wear with leggings. It’s been my go-to piece to pair with my leggings for when I want to feel a little more dressed up.
There have been a few tips I read before having Benjamin which have been helpful in my recovery. The best tips have been: sleep when possible, get out of the house early and often, set small goals, and get ready every day. Read More
Finally, my last maternity style post! We took photos ahead of time in anticipation that I might go past my due date, but that of course didn’t happen! 🙂 Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite books during pregnancy. I read several especially during my first trimester, then picked up a few more closer to my due date.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving- this month has absolutely flown by! I can’t believe it will be December in just a few days! We spent the last week enjoying time with family and friends who were visiting for the holiday and also savoring our last few days of Mathew’s paternity leave.
Our little baby is three weeks old, and I’ve still got a few more maternity looks to share on the blog. 🙂 This cream sweater was a favorite of mine towards the end of my third trimester as the weather began to cool. I also wore it in this post.

I think I even wrote a few drafts about body image that just got deleted. It’s hard to know where to start, but body image during pregnancy is something I struggled with a bit, and I think a lot of women do. Read More
Happy Monday! We’re back to shooting photos in real time. It’s been a few weeks since we took outfit photos, and we shot multiple looks at once which I’ve been using for the last several weeks. So, basically what I’m trying to say is my belly looks a lot bigger than it did with the last outfit I shared. 🙂 I’m 36 weeks pregnant now, which means we’ve got about a month to go until our due date.
This mockneck swing tee is actually from last year, and it’s non-maternity. I bought it from the LOFT outlet last fall and I looked back in the archives and saw that I did style it in January (see the entire post here). I’m not going to lie, looking back at those photos makes me really miss my pre-pregnancy body. Read More
