Adventures of the Wandering Whippy Cakes – Twiggy // Kansas City, Missouri

tunic: forever 21 | jeans: motherhood maternity | necklace: oh, hello friend | headband: whippycake | shoes: nordstrom rack

We’re baaaack!  That’s right friends, it’s time for the 4th installment of the Adventures of the Wandering Whippy Cakes.  This time, I’m modeling the Twiggy, a super pretty neutral and earth tone headband that is just so perfect for fall.  I am seriously loving all brown, tan, pink colors right now, especially when mixed together.  These pictures were taken on the entrance/exit street of our neighborhood, the row of color changing leaves on the trees is always so wonderful to look at as I leave for work in the morning and come home in the afternoon.  So glad bump got to see it too.

My feet are happy to show off these new shoes I just got.  They are a little vintage and a lot of goes with everything neutral.  Only problem is that my feet started swelling pretty much the day after this photoshoot.  Please tell me my feet will go back to normal after I have my baby.  It would be a tragedy to not be able to wear any of my previous shoes anymore, although that might be good for all you size 7-7.5ers as I might have to have a blog sale to get rid of them (*tear*).  OK, let’s not think about that.

Bump update: 31.5 weeks

– Increased pelvic pain on the side I sleep on

– Hips getting increasingly bigger… yikes!

– Maternity photos taken by Ria Photography and so excited to see them!

– Had a surprise work baby shower, so fun!

– Baby is still super active with its punches, kicks and somersaults

    I LOVE LOVE that last photo of you sandy, your all smiles and your skin is GLOWING!!! I was breaking out pretty bad at the end of my pregnancy =(

    The swollen will definitely get better, even after you have the baby. Mine is now back to normal but i remember my feet were super swollen around 35-36 weeks! if your sitting down, always put your feet up on ottoman to help with the blood flow!
