"What Would Audrey Wear?"

... thought I, "if she were nine months pregnant?"
and this is what I came up with.

Hey, a lot of old Hepburn movies have been on my agenda lately, now that I'm officially on maternity leave.

Gotta keep my mind busy with something besides "when will baby get here already??"
And Audrey movies are a perfect solution, I think.

Deletta blouse.  Motherhood Maternity shorts.
vintage necklace.  Steve Madden oxfords.

We Heart Structured Blazers.

H&M blazer.  Language shirt.  Motherhood Maternity shorts.
Vintage boots.  H&M bag.  Vivi Dot button ring.
Nordstrom BP sunglasses.

And by 'we' I mean me and my belly.  
I've been finding that blazers (or any sort of clean-cut top) help define my torso a bit better.
See world, I am not as wide as my tummy.  
I still have shoulders and ribs and stuff, thankyouverymuch.

Hello, Internets. Whatcha been up to?

H&M menswear plaid shirt.  Lush tank top.  Motherhood Maternity shorts.
vintage boots.

Well, what have I been up to, you counter back?
Oh you know, nothing much, just growing a baby inside of me.

Turns out it's kinda exhausting work.

But I only have about 3 weeks or so left (!!!!)
And I'm gonna try to make these 3 weeks count, man.

Because once Baby gets here, who knows what will happen.

Could be sweat pants and slippers for the rest of the summer...
And no one wants a blog post about that.

I'm So Sneaksy, Wearing Jammies as a Dress...

Eloise dress.  80%20 wedges.  Bracelets:  H&M, F21. 
It's true, this dress is really jammies.  How do I know this?  Because I bought it from the Jammie Corner at Anthropologie.  
You know that corner, right?  With a fabulously fluffy bed in the center, frilly and funky loungewear all about, and lovely candles and lotions just calling your name.  
Yeah.  There. 

This little number was just hanging out in Jammie Corner, calling my name, with a sale price I couldn't refuse.  
So I bought it.  
And wore it. 
In the daytime.
With a slip under it, of course.

Jammies tend to be a bit see-through otherwise.

Exciting Thrift Finds

Deletta blouse.  (thrifted!) Gap Maternity slacks.  Madison 88 hat.
Miss Albright heels.  F21 locket.  Vivi Dot watch necklace.

So the other week I had some huge success finding second hand maternity clothes.
I mean, this is exciting stuff here.  Who likes spending money on clothes you know you won't be wearing in 3 months?  Not I.

Although I do have to say pregnancy pants are pretty great. (yea that's right, Pregnancy Pants.   It has a much better flow than maternity pants.  ah alliteration.)
Elastic waist, non-binding.  You guys, they are like sweat pants in disguise.
I just might never go back.
Pregnancy Pants Forever!

Ok, but seriously, here is what I scored (for a grand total of about 30 bucks):
2 pairs of shorts
a navy striped cotton dress
2 pairs of pants
2 shirts: a cotton yellow striped number and your basic white collared wrap blouse

All that for the same amount of money as one (ugly) maternity top from Target. 
Oh how thrifty.
and nifty. 
ok sorry I had to do it
