Obsessed with Flowy Blouses

shirt: ark & co. | tank top: forever 21| belt: from another shirt | jeans: motherhood maternity | shoes: steve madden | necklace: oh, hello friend

Besides dresses, dresses and more dresses, another pregnancy must is a flowy blouse (many of them).  I got this blouse while shopping with my mom in California a few weeks back and I just love it.  The flowiness, the flowers, and the feel.  Don’t mind that it’s a bit short on me b/c of my expanding belly.  It’s not a maternity shirt so I can wear it after I have the baby too.  🙂

bump update: 26.5 weeks

– baby kicks are in full force and marv can feel it too

– still nesting and working on the nursery 🙂

– took the glucose tolerance test, that drink was so sugary! will find out in a week if i pass

– still craving pumpkin spice lattes, salted caramel hot chocolates and apple cider but haven’t had any yet!

– have gained 15 pounds total so far

– finding it increasingly difficult to get dressed each morning since i only have a handful of pants i can fit into and i’m realizing i can’t fit into many of my sweaters…

    You are just too cute! I love that shirt.

    I can’t wait to start drinking some apple cider, pumpkin things, and I think I might have to go get some hot chocolate now. It’s so cold in our apartment.

    Isn’t it great to be able to have hubby feel the kicks? I love sharing that with my husband. I wish I could say I’d only gained 15 pounds! Good for you!

    aw look at you, all glowing! your starting to show more now and I bet baby must be active since your 26 weeks!

    Oh I feel ur pain. I only have 3 pairs of maternity pants. I’m not even going to try my old, non-mat ones. I’ve been living in fold over yoga pants…but unfolded. Hehe. Thankfully, those still fit! I think I have a couple more weeks of squeezing into my old, fall jackets before I can’t zip them anymore. Oy…the woes of finding clothes that fit our ever-growing bodies.

  17. September 20, 2011 / 11:21 am

  18. September 20, 2011 / 12:01 pm

    You are almost making me miss my baby belly! I just had my little girl, and it’s great to have a waist back… but there are times I miss that sweet connection. You look absolutely gorgeous, congratulations! 🙂
