It might not be apparent to some of you, but I’m not really a makeup person! I use makeup everyday, but I don’t care too much about what hot new products there are out there for your hair, nails, skin, or face. What I mean is, you shouldn’t ask me for makeup tutorials or product recommendations! I suck at those.
I just got back from our family vacation at Lake Gaston in North Carolina! Here are some photos of Rob and I on the porch just outside our bedroom. It was so nice to actually have him be part of my blog for once! It’s not easy to get him to pose with me on a “mostly” fashion blog. I can totally understand, and I don’t blame him. He is as much into fashion as I am into video games! We both like to participate in what we each like to do, but it’s expected that we aren’t going to be as into them as the other. It’s a mutual and beautiful interplay of hobbies between couples… and it’s a lot like blogging! Here’s why.
These photos are somewhat old. They are from mid June, and I was 17 weeks! I am at 22 weeks now. I know I can’t keep delaying publishing photos when my belly changes SO quickly between weeks while pregnant. However, with the right clothes on, you can hardly really tell the development. ;-)
I find it kind of funny how other pregnant women choose to wear bodycon dresses in their later stages of pregnancy. Besides wearing a crop top, bodycons would probably be the next most obvious way to show off that “baby bump,” as so many people like (or hate) to call it! Not a good idea if you’re trying to hide that at all!
I’m also collaborating with one of my favorite indie stores, Boohoo for their #WeAreUSA campaign. I’m here to represent #WeAreBaltimore or better yet, #WeAreBabyBump! ;-)
I’m noticing elements of Art Deco with today’s outfit but only really saw it afterwards! Perhaps it’s the geometric necklace paired with the bat wing silhouette of the scarf. I enjoy happy accidents with clothing. Overthinking it isn’t always as fun!
I am 20 weeks pregnant in these photos. I honestly have not bought anything made for maternity wear! I’ve just been a bit clever with the cuts and styles I choose to put on, which makes that belly magically disappear. *Trying to refrain from saying “baby bump” as much as I can*
Earlier this year, I received my certification for teaching hatha yoga. It was also the same time I found out I was pregnant! I took a leave of absence from teaching, because my particular class was really rigorous on the body. From all I learned about stress, healing, and pregnancy, I knew that taking a break was for the best!
