Date Night Style: Pregnancy Edition

Date Night Style: Pregnancy Edition

Remember last week when I ranted about pregnancy clothes being so pricey and that I was just trying to find stuff in my closet that still fit? (If not, read it here.) I'm taking the same advice this week. Let me just tell you about this skirt. I LOVE this skirt. I purchased it and then found out I was pregnant and then was promptly sick for 4-5 months. Being sick all of the time really limits your nights out, let me tell you. This outfit is perfect for a date night or a non-black tie (re: casual or cocktail) event.

So this skirt has been sitting in my closet, staring at me with the price tag still on it.

Taunting me.

Quite rude, actually. I tried this on last night to see if it still fit on a whim, and IT DID!!! It's made of metallic gold fabric interwoven with black in the most stretchy material I've ever seen. It is a tight pencil skirt (a la Mad Men) but I can still WALK and sit in it. Glorious. High pencil skirts are also great for pregnancy if they have some stretch because the waist sits above the bump.

Needless to say, I knew this was the outfit of choice. Throw on my favorite red soled heels, and off we go! IMG_4813 IMG_4839 IMG_4853 IMG_4870 IMG_4889

I honestly have no idea how much longer I can keep wearing crazy heels and pencil skirts, but hey, it's fun, so I'm running with it. I think we've already established that I sort of do what I want when it comes to my pregnancy wardrobe. ;)

Have a great Wednesday!

Update Your Wardrobe: The Pencil Skirt

We've all been there. We look in our closet and complain "I have nothing to wear!" I've been known to do the same, and I have a fair amount of clothing. The main thing to remember is that you have clothes, and you can work with that. You can always get things tailored and altered, or you can purchase new items that are inexpensive to inject a little energy into your tired wardrobe. Case in point today: add a brightly colored skirt to your wardrobe rotation. I prefer a pencil skirt, because it is a classic silhouette and pretty flattering on most body types.   Read more >

My Doctor Judged Me for Wanting to Have Sex, for Not Being a "Selfless Mother"

Most women (parents or not) are probably familiar with the image of the selfless mother. You might, in fact, be so familiar with it that you don't even think about a mother without automatically assuming how selfless she is. After all, the American ideal seems to scream that we women should think of nothing but our children once they are born. And I will try (and fail, right here, right now) not to mention the fact that motherhood is basically still a given in our society and those who decide they don't want children are still seen as oddballs.   Read more >

5 Ways to Do Maternity Leave Right

You have a new baby and your parental leave has begun! All those blissful weeks ahead of bonding and relaxing. My well-timed July baby meant lazy afternoons lounging by Coleman Pool and al fresco lunches with my unemployed friends. Maybe I’d finally get around to painting the downstairs bathroom. Maybe I’d take up sewing. Maybe I’d make jam or learn how to infuse vodka with the fruits of our four plum trees. Maybe I would seek help for -- what’s the medical term? Oh, right, my severe state of delusion.   Read more >
