Goodbye November, Hello December!

Sweater & Vest: TJMaxx | Necklace: Forever 21 | Jeggings: Eco Wear | Boots: Famous Footwear

And that’s it for November, we’re on to December already!  It’s time to bust out the fair isle sweater dresses (well most sweater dresses are more like tops for me right now) and the faux fur vest.  I’m kind of surprised that it’s taking this long for the weather to get cold, but really, I’m not complaining.  The bits and pieces of warm weather this November have been NICE because who is ever ready for cold weather.  And if you ask me, there’s no getting used to it even if you’ve grown up with it.  One good thing about having a baby in the wintertime is that you don’t have to leave your house in the brutal cold icy weather to go to work each weekday.  By the time my maternity leave is over, the weather should be warming up again, YES!  Although, it may kind of be a little depressing being cooped up in the house all day and not really getting much sunshine or fresh air.  :/

Speaking of maternity leave, just wanted to let you know that once Baby a la mode decides to come out, I won’t be leaving you hanging here.  I have an awesome line up of guest posts where the topics range from baby + mommy stuff, fashion, recipes, DIYs, and printables!  You may even see a few before Baby a la mode makes his appearance (as the final days I’m sure will be super uncomfortable for me), especially if he decides to wait until right before the New Year to come out.

Oh yes… and if your name is Stephanie T and this is your blog, then CONGRATS!  You are the winner of the Rice Babies $20 credit giveaway!  Please email me at sandyalamode(at)gmail(dot)com to claim your prize!  🙂

And don’t forget to enter the $35 credit giveaway to the lovely Seek First rosette accessories shop!

It’s the last day to FACEBOOK LIKE and COMMENT on my looks to help me win the Soon Maternity Blogger’s Style Challenge, won’t you help me out?

What are you looking forward to most this December?

(I’m hoping Baby a la Mode is born this month!)

    I love your vest! I never thought about maternity leave that way before, must be great to just cozy up inside.

  26. December 1, 2011 / 8:14 pm

    I have to say, if I could perfectly plan my future pregnancy, I would want to have the baby in the winter so that I wasn’t super pregnant in the summer and so that I wasn’t dealing with a newborn in the summer. I just feel like it would be harder to deal with the heat and humidity in those situations.

    I am most looking forward to my little brother’s visit to New York. I can’t wait for him to come!

    That sweater dress (or top) is so pretty! I’ve got to get a sweater dress–how have I lived for so long without one? And I fear we’re about to get hit with some cold weather this weekend…boo.

  28. December 1, 2011 / 10:29 pm

    I love your vest so much (and the whole outfit pretty much!!) and I agree, being pregnant is awweesooommee in the winter!! We didn’t do it on purpose for the pregnancy, but I think for the next ones, I am going to try to plan it that way ha ha. I live in AZ and in the summer it gets to like 115 degrees… I couldn’t imagine being hot, sweaty, and miserable in the summer while pregnant. I probably would never leave the house, lol.

    you look great sandy! can’t wait for the arrival of baby alamode!

  30. December 2, 2011 / 7:12 pm

    Dearest sweet sandy, i always look forward to your in style column because you are beautiful and you have great taste in clothes. 🙂 Love love the outfit and love to you!
