So excited it was warmer for a couple days here and I could just get dressed without worrying about freezing. This onesie was so much fun to wear, and ridiculously comfortable. I don’t love it layered like this, but it’s not warm enough to wear alone yet. It’ll be great for spring/summer because the textile is very lightweight and breathable. And it’s got a low v-neck in the back – built in A/C !!!
I am probably going to return the Madewell Fair Trade jeans I bought this week, mostly because they made me remember how much I dislike stretchy jeans, and also because I don’t really need them. I have quite a few pairs of comfortable pants to wear the rest of my pregnancy, and honestly, when it warms up here (hopefully in a month), I’ll be wearing all my jumpsuits and dresses as often as possible anyway. I do like them a lot, for stretchy denim, and definitely recommend checking them out if you’re in the market for jeans and want a more responsible option from a mass retailer.
The Everlane cotton wrap cardigan arrived yesterday and I like it, but it’s nothing amazing IMO, which is the way I feel about everything Everlane lately, just meh. It’s very good, don’t get me wrong, and I love a tie-waist sweater. It’s just sort of boring. But as I mentioned this week, it’s not a bad idea to buy/keep things that don’t necessarily spark joy, but do fill a need in your wardrobe, and/or are practical for certain situations. This sweater will be great for warmer weather, and to throw on with my James Perse dresses when I want pockets.
I started reading Black Leopard Red Wolf this week (fantasy) because I’d heard an interview with the author on NPR and then read something somewhere else and was intrigued. I’m hard-pressed to read “new” fantasy, or authors I’m not familiar with; I’m somewhat of a critic when it comes to that genre, having very high standards LOL. So far, I’m enjoying it, although it’s been a little slow to get into, and very different from what I’ve read before. I do recommend it though, even so, because it’s so different, and challenging, in a way.
I got a c-shaped body pillow this week after talking to a teacher at Pure Barre about hers. I specifically mentioned that I wake up a lot as a result of rolling over onto my back which makes one of my arms fall asleep. She said she had that same thing happen and tried this C-shaped body pillow, which solved the problem by supporting her back. So far so good, and as you can see Dagny loves it 🙂
I think it helps me sleep better – that and a humidifier. Last night I slept through the night without waking up once. Not even for the bathroom. I was so excited!! It could be that Leo was out of town, which meant that Dagny could have all his side of the bed instead of encroaching on mine though…
Incidentally, this is what happens when you love grey LOL you end up with varying shades, some of which tend towards blue – not a fan. When we buy new sheets for the bed I’m going to get white haha.
Hope you had a good week! Anything fun to share? What are you doing this weekend? What have you bought/worn lately that you love?
