20 Weeks - Pregnancy Style

Do you have the time, to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything, all at once
I am one of those, melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone, no doubt about it
- Green Day

That song came on the radio today and I couldn't help but laugh. Because about now, that is the direction my life is headed. I am having one big pity party for myself over here. Part of it is about the move and feeling totally overwhelmed. But most of it is about my expanding waste line and my lack of clothing options. Getting dressed every day has become something I dread. I seem to be forced to put on the same things every stinking day. And I don't want to waste money on more clothes. So, I am kind of stuck with with I have...stuck in my pity party. Only sort of, really. Once I unpack my clothes from Scotland, I anticipate finding some more options to wear. I don't remember feeling this way last time. Then again, I spent most of my time in oversized men's polos at work and sweats when I was at home. 

All this to say, I am challenging myself. Challenging myself to NOT look like a slob everyday and to have some sense of style throughout this pregnancy. Because of this, I am going to start posting pictures of myself on here. That way I have a reason to try. You see, I don't want you all judging me and thinking of me as a total slob, so I will try, even if just to impress you. So there you have it. 

Without further ado, I present me today:

Jacket: Old Navy
Tank: Topshop Maternity
Jeans: Old Navy Maternity
Shoes: Rainbows

And me yesterday:

Tank: Michael Stars Maternity
Jeans: Old Navy Maternity
Shoes: Rip Curl flip flops

Just for you, I promise to get out of jeans and into something else soon. I can't make the same promise about ditching my flip flops though...sorry.


  1. You are just the CUTEST! But yeah, tough spot to not wanna spend good hard-earned money on clothes you're only going to fit into for a short time. Do you have any preggers friends to hit up?
    But yeah, you look darling. You could always go to Target and try on the clothes and take pictures for a boost (and post 'em on here of course). You could call it, "What I WOULD wear."

  2. awwww, you look so cute! Hardly pregnant at all!

  3. Jess, long ago, when I was pregnant with your Mom, it was the custom to wear very loose tops that covered your baby bulge and I even kept one of the patterns.
    females did not have the option of knit tops of any kind. Anyhow, you look great, no matter what you wear, just be happy!
