WhatiWore: Does this dress look familiar? Earlier this spring I wore the pale blue version from Free People and was so excited when the black came back in stock. I’ve worn the blue countless times (most recently, to my Bloomington baby shower) and as my friend Abby put it, there’s a definitely Earth Mother vibe going on. We’re about 5 weeks from our estimated due date and although I can appreciate a few more weeks to prepare, I’m so excited to meet this little baby! Any guesses on whether it will be a boy or a girl?
WhatIWore: Here’s one of the later additions to my maternity wardrobe, a pretty polka dot knit that kinda sorta reminds me of Julia Robert’s wardrobe in Pretty Woman. I’m feeling more pregnant than ever! Baby is growing right on track and packing on the pounds and I’m perfecting the art of waddling gracefully. Despite slowing down, I feel great!
WhatIWore: If you’ve read What I Wore for even a little while, you’ve probably noticed that I wear a lot of hats, many of them marked self made. My first experience in hat making was a two week section of a costuming class (which also covered gloves, corsets and tutus) back in college. Then my book club read this memoire in January of 2013 and I was inspired to get back into millinery.
I hacked my way through it. I bought new and vintage blocks (wooden hat forms). I watched YouTube videos. I used a lot of trial and error. While the end results were good enough, I didn’t really know what I was doing.
And last Thursday, I made a step towards changing that.
