I’ve been sort of sick this week (just a cold I think, but it’s wearing me down), so haven’t been doing much. I’m still not feeling great now, which is why it’s taking me 5 hours to write this post LOL. But here are some outfits from this week!! 🙂
Storq is offering 20% off with code HEYMA through the weekend. I ordered a nursing tank (thanks to Elaine’s review), a basic black dress that was on sale, and the carryall/diaper bag, who are we kidding….
I definitely recommend all the Storq pieces I have (they were all gifted) and have found them indispensable as I’ve gotten bigger; it’s so helpful to have actual maternity clothing when you’re pregnant. It sounds like a no-brainer, but for someone like me who wanted to try and get by just wearing “regular” sized clothes all nine months, these items have been a game changer. And despite my initial hesitation about the leggings, they have turned out to be quite versatile and easy to wear.
I am still firmly in the leggings-are-NOT-pants camp, but I’m willing to be a little more relaxed than usual about that during pregnancy. I still wouldn’t wear them without covering my ass, and they’re very much a casual piece, but I care more about comfort than almost anything else nowadays, so leggings are working their way into my wardrobe on the regular.
A note on the Keds sneakers – I really love these but they run a little big. No problem if I wear my smartwool footies socks with them, but FYI. My feet do tend to swell a little when the weather gets hotter, and, I’m pregnant, so I’m hoping these will fit better sockless soon. They’re comfortable though, and I love that they don’t have any leather.
Reformation does shoes now, and they’re typical Reformation, slinky and feminine. Most are not my style, but I trust their efforts at sustainability over lots of other companies.
(more) Clean jeans in really cute colors + an interview with the CEO of Saitex, the denim factory that also makes Everlane & Madewell’s “cleaner” jeans.
The new plastic that can be endlessly recycled – this is cool, but has a long way to go…
Hoping to stop coughing over the weekend. That is all I want.
Happy Mother’s day to all the moms out there 🙂
Love outfit #1 – so chic! And you look so tiny! (100% serious) I’m catching up on sleep after returning from vacation yesterday. Is it possible to suffer from “Spirit Airlines jet lag”? I feel like my knees were under my chin, and my left knee is in pain and blown up like a balloon today.
Reading All the Light We Cannot See (last person in America, I’m pretty sure) and laying low. We were going to go into the city and visit the Tolkien exhibit at the Morgan Library, until my knee did it’s thing. Happy Mother’s Day everyone!
OMG, your killing me with all the Ace & Jig! It’s so darn happy and cute. Unfortunately, all my “spring” funds got sucked up when we moved to Colorado and I was forced to buy coats, boots and all manner of warm things after living in the south for the last 30 years!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms!
Honestly, you and Elaine are making me want to be pregnant again after all these years…hahaha….just style-wise, just style-wise!!!! 😉 Seriously, I am one of those rare women who has always, since my 20s and before, loved maternity and plus-sized clothing for the clean lines and space. I like that fashion is currently very diverse, so that I can find the simple, androgynous stuff I tend to like in my size, while others can go for athletic, or form-fitting, or ultra fem, or whatever. I hope the days are gone forever when the only shoe available each year would be with a very specific heel and toe, or dresses would only be just waisted or just shift or just long or just short….you get the drift. Out with the rules forever!

You look great – love these! I hope you enjoy and embrace leggings postpartum, too — they are great when you’re parenting at home and allowed me to keep wearing a few dresses I SWEAR got shorter while I was pregnant…
Shoes: not everyone’s feet change sizes, but mine did. I was an 8.5/9 before my twins, 9 after, and sometimes take a 9.5 now (after my third). She’s two… I think the change is permanent! (They say swelling is temporary but relaxed foot ligaments are forever!)
