WhatIWore: This summer has easily been one of the best of my life. I’ve slowed way down, ditched wearing shoes 50% of the time, stepped away from my camera and computer and just let life happen. I’ve been so addicted to my twitter and instagram feeds over the past few years, counting pageviews and planning posts that it feels so refreshing to just be in the moment. So what have I been up to? Here’s a bit of my daily life in snaps.
Above: Homemade pies for my baby shower by my Aunt Barb (who taught my my grandma Schroeder’s recipe last fourth of July) including peach, peach custard and rhubarb blueberry custard plus flowers from her garden.
Showing off my new Target two piece and getting a little tan on my baby bump at the local pool lately (floating feels dreamy at 30+ weeks pregnant!)
My best pie to date: A black raspberry custard (click through and follow the tag #jessicas100pies to see all of the flavors I’ve attempted)
Staying off my feet and doing a lot of reading/napping in the afternoon.
One of the bajillion photos of his royal highness Raymond, who’s in for a little bit of a life change once baby arrives (but will take all of the snuggles he can get in the mean time!)
WhatIWore: I was thisclose to calling this post Orange is the New Black, but I’m a firm believer that nothing is the new black. Black is the only black. (On a side note, love the show, zipped through S2 in a week!) See one of my other favorite orange outfits HERE. Also of note, I have my dress on backwards! By accident!
WhatIWore: I always feel like I’ve had a minor victory when I wear an outfit that’s not maternity. This was the first chambray I ever bought and I’m wearing it loosely knotted over a knit skirt hiked way up and a black sports bra. Yes, my bra is showing. Nope, I don’t care! It’s pretty basic but a nice way to wear the new casual purse I picked up at a boutique in Asheville on vacation.
