Summer is officially here. This next week is going to be hothothot. It will be interesting.
I’ve been very sporadic in remembering to take pictures of my outfits. I think I only remember when I feel especially put together or cute. Ha.
I shall try to be more honest with you all and take pictures a bit more often. :) we shall see. I anticipated this summer dressing thing would be a lot harder than it has been so far (though we’ve not had very many hot days yet!), but I was given a huuuge box (think coffin sized…ok, maybe dwarf coffin sized) of hand-me-down maternity clothes (a huge collection from a few different ladies judging by the sizes) to go through and ended up keeping about a third of it!
So now I suddenly have a whole summer maternity wardrobe to put to use.
I was so happy for that.
I’m still going to have to try a little bit, but now I have cute t-shirts that actually fit for my ‘t-shirt and jeans’ days! :)
Prime example. It hasn’t been too hot for jeans much yet, but I’m sure we’ll get there.
My new and improved running top from Costco. I ended up getting three of these, two in small and one in medium for when I’m more pregnant. :) I only decorated the medium as it shall be my dedicated pregnant summer running top.
The president of my chapter of the Moms Run This Town running club has a fun machine that lets her make these iron ons for us. She had this one for her pregnancy and I thought it was too cute. I will definitely be wearing this for my race in a couple weeks.
So far I just wear my normal jeans with a belly band or low-waisted jeans I’ve gotten specifically for pregnant use. I would love to wear maternity jeans, buuut..they tend to slip down gradually. Especially after you’ve worn them a while. For some reason my normal jeans stay up better. I’m just lucky they still fit (I blame running).
They do tend to get uncomfortable across the front if I wear them too long…but it bothers me less then sagging pockets. So I sacrifice and just change out of them in the evening for lounging.
I’m so sneaky. I don’t wear the same outfit all day!
The side view of this outfit shows me that shirt is a little shorter than I’d like.. Doesn’t really matter with a cami underneath, but I don’t really like the look.
Ranger saw me posing and decided he needed in on the model shots.
I thought my outfit today was really fun. i really wanted to wear the blue shirt, but I was having trouble with the fit of it.
(Ranger picked up the camera from where I’d set it up with them timer so I hurried to pose while it was still somewhat pointed in my direction!)
Turns out it works really well as a vest and I felt pretty and somewhat dressed up for our date today :)
So that’s that. My reflection on some outfits.
I really don’t have much of an idea where I’m going with this series. But I like trying to make sure I look cute for Mr. Husband a bit more often and am not in stretchy pants and a tee all the time. :)
It’s a confidence boost as I go through the day knowing I tried a bit and I don’t look as frazzled/tired as I might feel.
I also get more done on days when I’m up and dressed sooner.
Next week I’m going to need to get a tad more creative since my jeans will be out the window along with the cool air… So thankful for air-conditioning!
