Golden Goose hi-star sneakers | these are always showing up secondhand at The Real Real
It’s another outfit!! Are you bored yet?? haha. I had an appointment to get my hair cut first thing this morning (thank goodness), so this is a “before” pic; my hair is quite a bit shorter now. And it feels so good; having hair on my neck makes me so hot. And it’s at that time of the year now that it’s hovering around 100 degrees every day. Ugh.
I guess I don’t have much else to say today. TBH even after all these years (fifteen) posting pictures of myself and opening up about my life, etc., online, I still suffer a little “trauma” after getting nasty comments. I don’t really take them personally anymore, or seriously, but it’s always a little tough to resume posting the next day after receiving one. Like I’m sort of bracing myself for more, if that makes sense.
Anyway, I think I’m at that point of pregnancy where I’m pretty much over it and just generally frustrated. It’s not that bad, really, all things considered. I’m just anxious for the next part!
You look amazing and you’re going to be a fabulous mom. That’s it 🙂
Love your dress. Looks so cool and comfy for hot weather.
And about rude remarks…they don’t say anything about you, but everything about the author.
100% true, Marilise! Delete them, Grechen – they’re not worth the time or frustration. And it just makes me @#$&* mad!
I’m so glad your posting more frequently again! And you’re looking great!
Sorry someone dropped a “nasty” on you. I understand the trauma…I was working at the Art gallery one day, sitting back behind the counter and a women picked up a piece of pottery and I said “ that piece is by one of our local artists…” and she raised her hand and yelled “Don’t speak. No one wants to hear you”. Even though I know rationally she is the one with the problem…it still stung. Humans can be kind and they can also be so damn ugly! So, send that negative shit away and just continue radiating your beautiful self.

oh my gosh! people can be so mean. and yes, of course it has nothing to do with you/me, but still, it’s an attack, and it totally stings.
i guess as a human trying to live with other humans, i try not to take my shit out on the people around me, but some people don’t have the capacity for that…
Love the shirt dress: I was eyeing a different pattern on the 6397 website earlier today, but realize I probably don’t need (and shouldn’t spend that much) on another shirt dress right now. But I’ve realized that, in the last two years or so, that I love shirt dresses. They’re easy to wear. Comfortable. Are pretty much always appropriate (can be dressed up or down, depending on the accessories), so maybe I’m talking myself into another one soon…
Love and support radiating your way from California.
Congratulation! I myself had my baby at age 43. She is now 8 years old and a beautiful, smart girl.
I have a post that I talk about it.
We are more sensitive when we are pregnant but don’t let the trolls bother you.
Wishing you all the best.

Grechen…you are thoughtful, intentional, committed, and engaged. You clearly care about your family, your friends, the community you have built here, and through your commitment to ethical clothing and manufacturing, a much larger community in the world. I have no doubt that all these characteristics will make you a fabulous mother. I hope that many positive comments drown out the very few negative ones. I appreciate all that you teach me here and the interesting things you contribute on your site.
I totally feel you being done with pregnancy. I’m nearly 32 weeks with twins and I am really looking forward to being done with this phase and moving on to figuring out parenting. And people who leave nasty comments are the worst. I am so weary of them myself.
