Nautical Summer






This is my “if I lived by a beach or were going boating, I would wear this” outfit.  Actually, it’s my “Austin wants to dip his toes and splash in the pool” outfit.  Lately, after dinner, we’ve been taking Austin on walks around our neighborhood.  We’ll let him pick the pool, pond or playground.  I feel like whatever one he picks really depends on his mood.  He’ll pick the pool if it’s warm and he wants to actually get wet, we just end up sitting at the ledge and splashing our feet.  We haven’t actually taken him swimming this year yet, but we need to soon!  Although I am not sure how I feel about wearing a swim suit with this preggo body of mine.  I have stretch marks from my last pregnancy that a two piece is out of the question, but I still haven’t really found a maternity one piece that I love either.  He’ll pick the pond if she is just in a chill mood, we just walk around it and look at the ducks.  And he’ll pick the playground if he is feeling adventurous and confident, he is finally going down the slide by himself (except he will need to start off holding our hands).  He’s definitely a cautious little man, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but everything does take a little coaxing and saying “see, that was easy”.

    This is such a cute outfit. Love the striped cardigan. I don’t think I ever looked this cute during my three pregnancies.
