I am so not going to bore you with why I haven't published since Thursday, but I will ask you to take a look at this article on why those of us with baby are susceptible to a condition known as a suppressed immune system (you know if that's your thing--learning about stuff like that). I finally got over the nasal infection only to be walloped with a mild flu. I have been asleep in bed for the past two days. I suspect I will be going back to bed in exactly two hours. Fun!
What has helped me get through this? My Kindle Fire and episodes of Portlandia and Storage Wars on Netflix Streaming. Thank goodness for technology. :)
I have quite a few outfits of the day to get through that I have been meaning to publish for a while now. This will be short and sweet, with just a quick look at the items in the outfits along with where I was going. They ALL were comfortable. At this point if anything pinches, rides up, or makes me feel like I am going to hurt if I wear it longer than twenty minutes, I nix it as a possibility.
Top: Liz Lange Maternity. I wore this to the George Mason Basketball game, too.
Skirt: Mimi Maternity. This has a large elasticized waistband to make it work at all stages of pregnancy.
Shoes: J. Crew Quorra high heel oxfords. I love that these can be worn in the winter, although the cut-outs make them summer-appropriate too. (FWIW, it wasn't that cold that night...really hasn't been here at all. Winter was officially a no-show this year.)
Necklace: J. Crew from Fall 2009.
Dress: Liz Lange for Target. This was bought during CW's pregnancy, so it is a summer dress. Guess what? The temps in the 60s that day made this more than appropriate, especially with the cardigan.
Cardigan: J. Crew Jackie.
Shoes: Anthropologie Schuler and Sons Chiseled Wedges.
Earrings: J. Crew Snow Sparkle Earrings.
I also was making a really stupid face (like I was in the last photo, but that one was less stupid).
You can see the bracelet here too (J. Crew Sunset Charm Bracelet).
Top: Motherhood Maternity smocked bubble print tank.
Cardigan: J. Crew Soft Tee Cardigan.
Pants: Duo Maternity Cords.
Necklace: J. Crew Glass Bead Ladybug Necklace.
Shoes: Target Merona Meadow. These are a mary jane style with a slight heel and a darling rosette "buckle" on the strap.
Top: J. Crew Tissue Pintuck Tee. This is one of those tops that J. Crew makes that can stretch, stretch, stretch.
Shirt: J. Crew Tartan Tuxedo Shirt.
Pants: Duo Maternity Jeans.
Shoes: J. Crew Lula Bow Ballet Flats. LOVE the Lulas!
Necklace: J. Crew.
Top: J. Crew Jaspe Pullover. I loved the blue version so much that I bit on the grey as well. I think these will be cozy comfy options for pregnancy, and for post pregnancy will be the perfect tops for traveling (ugh, long car rides and/or plane trips).
Shirt: Old Navy Maternity Ruffled Button Down.
Shorts: Motherhood Maternity Bermudas.
Necklace: J. Crew Carnation Necklace.
Shoes: J. Crew Piera Ballet Flats. These stood up to the walk in the park well. :)
We ended up going to Dairy Queen instead, which was a definite plus in my book.
I have worn this tunic before recently (in the red halfway down that post), but clearly it is being stretched to its limits now (but still is fine, yay for soft jersey knits!).
Leggings: J. Crew.
Shoes: J. Crew Dreamweaver Ballet Flats, Size 9.5 (quickie review at the very bottom after the next photo).
Okay, that's all. I feel it would be a minor miracle if I actually post tomorrow, but who knows? :) You all have a great night!!!
