WhatIWore: Happy Monday everyone! Here are some snaps we took on Friday night before heading to our friends’ house for dinner on the deck outside. I first wore this dress this spring (on sale here) and added some hooks and tacks to keep the top on the modest side. As my pregnancy continues, those tacks aren’t cutting it so I used a flesh toned belly band as a panel. I’m glad I got to wear it again this summer and can’t wait to wear it next year too.
WhatIWore: I’m having one of those mornings where I already feel a little behind even though it’s still pretty early. Adam and I left the house at 6am to get to a doctor’s appointment near Indy, stopped for donuts on the way home and now I’m sitting at my favorite spot to edit the photos we just took and get my day going.
I was on the fence about keeping this dress, a maternity style from ASOS, but I’m glad I did. It’s light and cool and airy and bright and I can’t help but getting the tune to Edelweiss in my head as I wear it. I skipped any belt to give an illusion of a little more length (because boy oh boy, do I feel wide these days!) and paired it with some of my favorite accessories.
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!)
