It’s a Mom Outfit

White Top: Gift from SIL | Cardigan: Ann Taylor | Skirt: Forever 21 | Belt: from another outfit | Shoes: BCBG | Purse: Spotted Moth | Camera Insert: ONA

Marv thinks this outfit makes me look like a Mom.  I guess that makes sense since I am going to be a Mom here very shortly!  Maybe it’s the cardigan, maybe it’s the skirt, or maybe it’s because it looks like I’m toting around a diaper bag…  either way, I better embrace it.  The other night when we were out to dinner, Marv was telling me a story about how he was telling his co-workers that he won’t be available as much in December because his uhh uhhh… his son is going to be born.   He couldn’t even get that out without stumbling his words.  It’s kind of like when you use the word fiance/fiancee or wife/husband for the first time.  It’s gonna take some getting used to.

Oh and btw, that’s not a diaper bag you’re seeing there, it’s actually one of my fave neutral purses with The Roma camera insert and bag organizer from ONA.  I love this insert because it fits inside any medium/large sized bag.  It’s got an adjustable divider so you can tote around a DSLR w/ a small lens on it and an additional lens.  Or just the DSLR w/ a bigger lens by itself.  It’s got some sweet pockets to organize my lipstick, wallet, phone, since those things usually get lost in my purse, are you the same way?  The leather side handles also make for easier removal and the material of the bag feels like fabric wax, so smooth if you ask me.

    Awesome insert! I’m gonna have to check those out!
    I remember my hubby acting all giddy before out little one came too. Thing is, we become mamas the minute we see two little lines on the stick. We change our eating/drinking habits and our bodies change drastically! They don’t really become father’s until they’re holding that baby. Thats when it’s real for them…at least thats what my hubby told me 🙂
    You look fabulous though! Can’t wait to see the photos of your nursery and of course your baby boy!

    You are so darn cute!

    And I know I might be biased, but that camera insert is awesome! 😉 Wrapping up my camera in a scarf/pashmina to protect it in a regular handbag is probably not the smartest thing to do, after all! 😉
