White denim + 38 weeks, baby

Sunday, May 4, 2014

Another Sunday, another week closer to baby, another maxi skirt (see exhibits A and B). My recipe for 9+ months preggo style is either loose yogas or a maxi skirt (obviously more church appropriate, hence today's outfit), one of my H&M Mama jersey tees, compression tights (see yesterday's post) and maybe a jacket, scarf, and/or fun earrings if I'm feeling especially motivated.

And we are, quite obviously, 38+ weeks. I'm still not really sure how I got to this point, and still a little bit in denial that this little guy is making his appearance any day now. My belly button is probably as close to being an outee that I will ever come, and painfully obvious through shirts (see above). I guess it's just a waiting game now...I have no idea when our little guy will show face. Since the cramping and nausea that kept me awake on Friday night, I haven't really had much of anything to speak of so your guess is as good as mine (and probably much better if you're not a first-time pregnant mom). Right now I'm voting for Mother's Day, which would be so sweet and happens to be 5 days before his due date.

Jacket: J. Crew via Twice ($10 referral credit link), current version here
Fav pregnancy tee: H&M
Maxi skirt: J. Crew Factory
Scarf: thrifted

I wasn't so sure on the white denim jacket thing, but then I found this J. Crew one when I was browsing Twice (link to $10 referral credit link here) and it looked just like this one which is approximately $100 more than the one I purchased on Twice. When I got it in the mail, I kind of loved it (and if I didn't, Twice has free returns which are the best - I don't shop on Thredup for that reason). Anyways, I think it'll look great with jeans and a grey tee (or black, or navy, or pretty much any color) and I also like the white-on-white thing. I asked Stephen whether I should wear my regular denim jacket with this outfit or the white one; he voted 100% white.

And a little close up of the jacket and the 38.3 week bump:

Happy Sunday! Hope it's a lovely one.

  5. Love the white denim! A Mother's Day arrival would be so sweet :)

  6. Mother's Day would be so perfect! This outfit is adorable - you certainly don't look the part of overly huge pregnant lady, though I certainly understand how you can feel it :) Jackets always fit though, no matter the belly size! And this makes me want to add a white denim one to my collection now too...

  7. You're so close and look adorable. I went with a maxi skirt today, too. Yours looks pretty straight-cut; is it? How is it for walking? Mine is so tight that I almost knocked over a candle at church today—true story!

  8. So excited for you! Mother's Day would be perfect!

  9. You're almost there!!!!!!! My son was born a week before mother's day. What a great present!!!!!
    Love the outfit and that maxi skirt looks amazing on you.



  10. you are lovely and you are almost there!!!!!!!!!! How exciting! I love your outfit.

  11. That would be so sweet if your little guy arrived on Mother's Day. :) And I love the white on white- that jacket looks so clean & crisp! Also, I stopped using ThredUp b/c of their return policy, too. It's great to have free returns esp. when buying second-hand!
