This entire post is brought to you by my family. My husband picked out my outfit, and Lyla picked out the poses we did for the pictures. How do you think they did?
This is what I wore out to celebrate my last day of working during the day with the husband. That night was also known as our last date night in a VERY LONG TIME! We went to see X-Men: First Class, and I must say I was very happy with it. My comic book, geek husband says they strayed from the story line a bit, but did a good job setting up for the movies that have already been made. For someone like me, who just likes the movies, it was a great movie. Have you seen this X-Men yet? If so, what did you think?

I bought this as a maxi dress to wear to a wedding two summers ago. Let’s just say after having Lyla, and now especially being pregnant with the little guy, the top part just doesn’t fit right anymore. However, I loved the print and maxi dresses and skirts are still in style. I took my scissors and chopped off the top I’ve worn it before with a shirt tucked in and belted. That way works much better, but is way too uncomfortable for me at the moment. Thankfully, the bump is big enough that my Bella Band was all I needed to keep it up for the most part.

Sunday, Lyla and I were both dressed up so we decided to snap pictures together for this weeks What They Wore. I continued my trend of wearing pieces other than the were intended they were intended for. My “skirt” is the dress I wore way back here. Lyla looks just adorable in her purple, polka dot dress. I thought is was really cute that the sucker Pop-Pop got her seemed to match her dress so well.
Yep, I’m in that horribly awkward stage where my regular clothes don’t fit right and maternity clothes keep me busy all day yanking on them. What have I been doing to fight my hardest through this battle? I’m wearing dresses, tunics, or at least really long shirts with my sized up jeans. Depending on the day I may need to top this ensemble with the ever popular pregnancy band. Don’t even get me started on that thing. I feel that it is a blessing disguised as cruel hoops that must be jumped through each time you stand up.
I apologize again for my silence. Lots of things going on at the moment, and I’m having trouble staying on top of it all. The other reason being I really have not had many more than mediocre outfits. As I said earlier, this is probably the best of the best when it comes to my new uniform. I hope to pass this shortly, and have some time and energy to take pictures again soon. You can’t even see my 15 week bump here since, these are old(ish) pics.

Warm, snuggly, stylish cocoons. I LOVE SWEATER DRESSES! This one, though a cheap Forever 21 find, is surprisingly non-itchy. I wish I could afford a 100% cashmere version, but this one will be a good stand in until I’m gifted one or can afford the splurge. What cold weather splurges do you make?
Let me say this now, and just get it out of the way, I love this wrap! It is like wearing a sweatshirt, but so much better! Now that I got that off my chest (Which stayed nice and warm because of said wrap.) What are some of your favorite, yet stylish, was to stay warm?
