I’m so excited to share with you guys that we’re expecting baby #2 in September! The first trimester is almost over (sooooo tired) and I’m no longer able to hide my belly. I’m also happy to say that we were able to share the news with Dad before he passed . . . I’m so glad I didn’t wait to tell him.
You know what the best part about being pregnant is? Shopping for baby clothes. The worst? Shopping for your own clothes. (I kid. Kinda. I mean, if I’m honest, the worst part of my first pregnancy was kidney stones . . . but I digress.) There’s this cool boutique called Revisions in Marquette that sells gorgeous jewelry, unique porcelain ceramics and adorable kids’ clothes. (Like that “Everyone Poops” onesie you can see in the pic below). It’s like walking into a real-life Etsy site. It’s hard to leave empty-handed, especially when you have a little one or one on the way.
So baby clothes = easy. My clothes = harder. The first trimester, especially, you just kind of feel . . . bigger. The belly isn’t really pronounced so much but there’s definitely more there. I’ve been living in long, drapey tops (that skim over the pooch) with leggings and stretchy jeans. These tops are almost exactly what I wanted to wear after having Greenlea but I don’t (yet) have to worry about whether they’re nursing-friendly. (Although I’ll be able to nurse in most of them as long as I have a nursing tank underneath).
Oversized Turtleneck Tee: Love the oversized fit to this tee/dress. I could easily wear it without jeans underneath when the weather gets warmer. I can also nurse in it later because it’s so billowy and comfy.
Seamless Mini Dress: Comes in a TON of colors, perfect for layering.
Jeans: I’m obsessed with these jeans, and have been wearing them a ton since I got them. They’re super comfy, despite not being maternity clothes. They do have a maternity line, though, so I’m excited to try that as I get bigger. For now I can still wear these because of the stretch . . . and can use the hair-tie trick soon.
Faux Leather Jacket: 30% off right now – available in a ton of colors.
Boots: Available in two widths and with a shorter heel for comfort.
Backpack: We all love our Julian Backpack.
