oh, hi. it's been 4+ months. i had a baby. three weeks ago today. here's something i wore and felt good in during my "4th trimester," aka "how-to-hide-the-post-baby-belly." i wore this to a friend's son's birthday party tonight. i felt pretty good in it.

welcome back, self, to your style blog. keep it up. it's inspiration to shower and dress. because sometimes three kids sucks the will to shower and dress right out of you.

gray sleeveless maternity top: hand-me-down
black knit blazer: old navy
jeans: gap maternity
belt: thrifted
earrings: target
booties: f21

wooohooo!!! i made it! thirty whole outfits! the last few days were a bit precarious, but i made it. i have a wrap-up post coming, but i'll say now that this was definitely challenging as a growing pregnant lady. several things that fit great at the beginning of the remix are not fitting so great at the end. i had quite a few pieces that aren't maternity, and most of those have been lovingly placed in the to-wear-after-baby-comes box. not to mention, the temperatures ranged from 12 degrees to 90 degrees in the span of 30 outfits. though i didn't always feel like a million bucks at the time in these outfits, there are only maybe one or two that i look back at in pictures and really dislike.

i'm proud!

now, the question is whether i'll start slacking in the clothes department (and style blog department) for the rest of this pregnancy since i'm off the remix hook. we shall see.

i feel as though i am quickly entering "round pregnant lady" territory. when i'm pregnant, i don't gain weight much at all in the first half of my pregnancy. as a matter of fact, i typically lose anywhere from 5 to 15 pounds. but by the time week 19 or 20 hits, i am rockin' and rollin' with the weight gain. i'm 23.5 weeks right now. this also makes dressing cute more and more difficult. but i will persevere! because even though sweatpants seem appealing while getting dressed, i feel lots better throughout the day when i make more of an effort.
