What I’m Wearing- Link Up


My friend, Laura over at Hollywood Housewife is hosting a brag book seasonal style link up today. So…here’s what I’ve been wearing a lot of this summer….skirts, dresses, shorts. 🙂 And because she is pregnant, and another mama who has already posted is pregnant, I feel a little more confident posting this.

Reno has been hot. And when I’m preggo, I tend to run warmer. I’m always hot. I woke up last night to find hubby and Owen snuggled up together under a sheet and quilt, while I was kicking off the blankets and aiming the fan right on me. Sorry boys. Because I feel most of the time my pregnancy “glow” is really just a layer of sweat, I’ve really come to embrace flowy shirts and skirts. Granted, I feel prettier if I’m in a fitted maternity shirt, but I get so dang hot.

Here are a few examples of my outfits I’ve been rocking lately.

My Afternoon Delight Dress

I got this dress at Forever 21 before I even knew I was pregnant. But, we had been trying for a while, so I got this one because it can really expand. I did not, however, take into account that my er….chest, would also expand. Sadly, I’ve had to retire this dress to the back of the closet until next summer. Owen is rockin his JBF outfit (shorts and shirt) and a Hello Kitty purse my sister gave him.

Pretty linen skirt with tank

I got this little number at Old Navy a few weeks back when they were having their major sale. (75% off? Yes please!) Neither pieces are maternity, since I’m a cheapo and refuse to pay more than $25 for a shirt I’m only going to wear a few more months. The shirt was about $4 and the skirt was $6. I got the shirt in a bigger size than I usually wear and the skirt is elastic.

My "fancy" outfit

I can’t take credit for this beautiful outfit. My hubby picked it out for me. The shirt and skirt are both from a little boutique here, Baby Bumps. The shirt is cotton, so it’s pretty breathable and the skirt is one of my FAVORITES I’ve ever owned. It is stretchy, but without the maternity panel, so you better believe I’ll be wearing this after I have little baby.

Jambu Shoes.

My shoes….I LOVE them. My mama got them for me at Nordstrom’s in the spring of this year.  I am so in love with these Jambu‘s and wear them almost daily. (If not the Jambu shoes, then I wear my $4 Target flip flops I got after Owen was born. Don’t judge, they are comfy.)

And that’s pretty much what I’ve been wearing. I’ll save myself the embarrassment of posting a picture of me wearing my hubby’s t-shirt with holes in it and the pajama shorts I have been known to wear until noon on occasion. 🙂


About Erin

I'm a mom to the sweetest little boys ever, Owen & Colin. Owen was born in April of 2007 after 22 hours of active labor in a hospital. Love him more than life. Knowing I didn't feel another hospital birth was right for me, Colin was born at home surrounded by our 2 midwives and our little family. I've been married to my hubs for 7 years. We met in 1997 in an AOL Chatroom...the rest is history. I'm crazy. I'm funny. I am socially awkward. This is my life.

  1. you are such a cute pregnant person! I especially love the dress from the first pic, but TOTALLY understand that the chest expansion throws everything else off. Boy, do I understand that. 🙂
